  1. Moore is not a “founder” of Greenpeace, as that organization has pointed out repeatedly. He is, however, a paid shill for the Nuclear Energy Institute. Let’s make sure everyone is putting all of their cards on the table. Misleading people about your past and hiding who pays your bills today is no way to have an intelligent debate.
