You may find a story on Dr. Patrick Moore, ecologist and co-founder of Greenpeace on our website.

Opening the http://www.agbioworld.org/pr/moore.html we learned his Comments to the New Zealand Royal Commission on Genetic Modification: "The campaign of fear now being waged against genetic modification is based largely on fantasy and a complete lack of respect for science and logic.... Genetic modification can reduce the chemical load in the environment, reduce the impact on non-target species, and reduce the amount of land required for food crops. There are so many real benefits from genetic modification compared to the largely hypothetical and contrived risks that it would be foolish to ban genetic modification.

Greenpeace suffers from internal shakings nevertheless the pseudoreligious dogma wins:
See the mail from: Emma Gibson <Emma.Gibson@uk.greenpeace.org> sent on Monday, February 12, 2001, 1:02 PM:

"Dear all

You will/may have read some disturbing reports in this Saturday's papers (the Times, Telegraph & Indy) to the extent that Greenpeace either approves of the «moral goals of GM rice» or that Greenpeace will not take part in any action or protest over GM rice trials (which are happening in the Philippines). These reports are based on a press conference in France where a Greenpeace spokesperson was extensively quoted. There is, however, no truth in these statements! Greenpeace policy has not changed. Neither the moral nor the environmental issues have changed. Greenpeace is against any release of GM into the environment because of the potential risks; and Greenpeace reserves its right to take action to prevent any such release".

However, another problems are arising (May 11, 2001):

Activists from Greenpeace Spain have locked themselves in their headquarters in order to protest the new management team. The former head of Greenpeace Spain alleges that the new director is not "impartial" and that he has begun a "witch hunt". Gerd Leipold, executive director of Greenpeace International has given his full support to the new management team of Greenpeace Spain. The activists have been occupying their offices and hallways since around 6 p.m. yesterday.
