‘Environmentalist’ Says Roundup is Safe to Drink

French television station Canal+ recently sat down with Dr. Patrick Moore for an upcoming documentary. Dr Moore claims to be an ecological expert and is currently the frontman for Ecosense Environmental. Many claim he is a lobbyist for Monsanto (a company who supplies agricultural supplies to farmers).   However, Charla Lord, spokesperson for Monsanto wrote on Friday that “Dr. Patrick Moore is not and never has been a paid lobbyist for Monsanto,” (Newsweek). Newsweek explained that Moore is a former Greenpeace member and has an ecology PhD . He is an ardent proponent of genetically modified crops

In the interview, Dr. Moore insisted that Roundup (a Monsanto product) does not affect farmers’ crops and is, in fact, safe to drink. The interviewer did the only logical thing one could do in that situation. He offered the doctor a glass of the weed killer to allow him an opportunity to back up his statement.
