Patrick Albert Moore is a Canadian consultant, born June 15, 1947. He was one of the first presidents of the non-governmental organization Greenpeace, where he led the Canadian branch for seven years. Patrick Moore is an ecologist and “environmentalist” (not an ecologist in the sense of political ecology). After leaving Greenpeace and working for a while in the family salmon farm, he (since 1986) runs a consulting and communication firm on the theme of environment and sustainable development. He has since become a vocal critic of some of Greenpeace’s actions.
