Greenpeace Response to Patrick Moore Statements On Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Green New Deal

March 4, 2019

“Patrick Moore was not a co-founder of Greenpeace. He does not represent Greenpeace. He is a paid lobbyist, not an independent source. His statements about Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Green New Deal–which is an inspiring vision for climate action commensurate with the scale of the problem–have nothing to do with Greenpeace’s positions and should not be reported as such. Mr. Moore frequently cites a long-ago affiliation with Greenpeace to gain legitimacy in the media, and media outlets often either state or imply that Mr. Moore still represents Greenpeace. He does not.”
