In addition to bringing support for nuclear power from an early member of Canada's Greenpeace, he has evidently chosen to bring the environmental movement's special green brand of elitism too. Maybe it is just a misguided quest to try to rewrite history to make himself the first environmentalist to support nuclear power.

Of course, Norris McDonald remembers the many years that he was out there all alone without Moore or any of the other 'prominent,' 'international' individuals he consistently mentions. Nothing can change the fact that Norris McDonald was the first environmentalist to publicly support nuclear power in the United States and AAEA was the first environmental organization to do so.

Total emissions of the six main greenhouse gases in 2005 were equivalentto 7,260 million metric tons of carbon dioxide. These gases include 1) carbon dioxide, 2) methane, 3) nitrous oxide, 4) hydrofluorocarbons, 5) perfluorocarbons, and 6) sulfur hexafluoride. The report indicates that overall emissions have grown by 16 percent from 1990 to 2005. This report is the latest in an annual set of reports that the United States submits to the Secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, which sets an overall framework for intergovernmental efforts to tackle the challenge posed by climate change. The inventory also calculates carbon dioxide emissions that are removed from the atmosphere by "sinks," e.g., through the uptake of carbon by forests, vegetation, and soils.
