Monday, December 5, 2005
Room Mackenzie River
Palais des Congrès de Montréal
As the debates on finding solutions to mitigate global climate change while ensuring the security of electricity supply continue, many leading politicians and scientists are calling for swift reconsideration of the role of nuclear power. This side event aims to present facts and concerns that will lead to an effective discussion on which criteria and values should be considered when determining the possible role of nuclear power in addressing environmental and economic issues. Presenting his thoughts on how nuclear power must be part of the solution to global warming will be Dr. Patrick Moore.
Dr. Moore has been a leader in the international environmental field for over 30 years. He is a founding member of Greenpeace and served for nine years as President of Greenpeace Canada and seven years as a Director of Greenpeace International. Dr Moore led many campaigns and was a driving force in shaping the policy and activities that made Greenpeace the world's largest environmental activist organization.
Recently, Dr. Moore has worked to promote sustainability and create consensus among those with competing concerns. He was appointed to the British Columbia Round Table on the Environment and Economy and served from 1990 to 1994. In 1990, Dr. Moore founded and chaired the BC Carbon Project, a group that endeavoured to develop a common understanding of climate change
In 1991 Dr. Moore founded Greenspirit, a consultancy focusing on environmental policy and communications in natural resources, biodiversity, energy and climate change. In 2000, he published Green Spirit - Trees are the Answer, a book that provides new insight into how forests work and the powerful role they can play in solving many of our current environmental problems.
