Where in the World is Patrick Moore?

Last night he was on the Texas Gulf Coast. Details from the Houston Chronicle:

Speaking Thursday before the Gulf Coast Power Association in The Woodlands, Moore described himself as "proudly skeptical" of claims the scientific community has reached a consensus on the causes of global warming, but said he remains in favor of moving away from reliance on fossil fuels.

Moore, who is chairman and chief scientist of consulting firm Greenspirit Strategies and co-chair of a pro-nuclear energy group called the CASEnergy Coalition, said nuclear power could help wean the U.S. from its reliance on foreign oil and natural gas. It could also reduce the health effects of power plant emissions and save oil and gas for better uses, such as creating plastics, he said.

Moore's visit to Houston comes as a growing number of companies announce plans to build what will be the first new nuclear power reactors in the U.S. in nearly two decades.

Duh, of course he would hold out as a skeptic. He's figured out how to interference for Coal and Oil and still keep his Nuclear funding.
