Greenpeace lies and is caught out

The internet is forever - from the Internet Archive - November 19, 2002:

The founders of Greenpeace
In October, 1969 the US Atomic Energy Commission exploded a nuclear bomb on the tiny island of Amchitka, located near Alaska, in one of the most earthquake-prone regions in the world.

Many feared the blast would result in an earthquake. Five years earlier, a quake that killed 115 Alaskans had sent waves crashing on to the beaches as far away as Japan.

On the day of the blast, 10,000 protestors blocked the major US-Canadian border crossing, unfurling a banner that read: "Don't Make a Wave. It's Your Fault if Our Fault Goes". The US ignored the protests, and promptly announced plans for another test in 1971.

In 1970, the Don't Make A Wave Committee was established; its sole objective was to stop the second test. The committee's founders and first members included:

• Paul Cote, a law student at the University of British Columbia
• Jim Bohlen, a former deep-sea diver and radar operator in the US Navy
• Irving Stowe, a Quaker and Yale-educated lawyer
Patrick Moore, ecology student at the University of British Columbia
• Bill Darnell, a social worker

Darnell came up with the dynamic combination of words to bound together the group's concern for the planet and opposition to nuclear arms. The committee was renamed Greenpeace.

Emphasis mine - Dr. Moore was also on board for the Amchitka voyage.

The second link is from Anthony Watts:

Greenpeace disappears a founder, much like 'The Commissar Vanishes' in Soviet Russia
On our Friday Funny, which pointed out that Dr. Michael Mann labeled Greenpeace co-founder Dr. Patrick Moore as a “garden variety troll”, we thought it was funny that Dr. Mann couldn’t make the connection to who he was labeling.  But then, something funny happened on the way to the forum; we discovered that Greenpeace had been actively erasing Dr. Moore from their history page.

It’s just like the famous communist propaganda photo series The Commissar Vanishes

Again - keep pushing that narrative. We don't need facts, we just need something to keep the proles on the plantation.
