Patrick Moore has reported Greenpeace–the charity he co-founded in the 1970s–to the FBI for what he claims are a series of offences, including “outright breach of the RICO, wire-fraud, witness-tampering and obstruction-of-committee statutes.”"As Happer told Moore, “I was suspicious about the email exchange from the start, so I wrote every response assuming that it might be public someday. But what I wrote expressed exactly what I believed to be true.”
Moore has published a full account of the sting operation here.
What’s clear is that every stage Happer’s behaviour was morally and scientifically unimpeachable.
Happer stressed from the start that his opinion could not be bought – that is, he would only say in his paper what he believed anyway."
