A Co-founder of Greenpeace and a very vocal participant in the early environmental movement. Patrick is a scientist (Ph.D. in Forrestry) that has a clue, so he left Greenpeace and became a lobbyist/consultant on things that would actually help the environment, like Nuclear Power, responsible logging, and so on. To quote him, he left Greenpeace when the environmental movement became about scare tactics and disinformation, and "abandoned science and logic in favor of emotion and sensationalism".
