The religion of environmentalism

I've been thinking about modern day environmentalism and have come to some conclusions.

Environmentalism is anti-human, anti-freedom, and anti-Christian. It is a religion that must be taken on faith, because if you look at environmental principles rationally and using the scientific method, the whole environmental movement falls apart.

Scientists that buy into the global warming argument are either a) outside their area of expertise or b) funded by sources that will not allow them to show their evidence that it does not exist or is not a serious problem. Those scientists that do argue that global warming is a fraud are vilified and accused of altering their test results to mollify the source of their funding. Ironic, since it's the pro-warming crowd that either falsifies its data or modifies its computer models to give the proper results.

In the '70s the alarmists screamed that we were causing the globe to cool and disaster would surely follow. Twenty years later the same people were yelling the same thing about global warming. Now that the earth is cooling again, they've decided to hedge their bets by calling it "climate change." What utter nonsense. They tell us that the current cooling trend is only temporary and the earth will warm again. Well, yes! And then it will cool again and then it will warm again and, well that's the point isn't it? Climate always changes. There have been far greater fluctuations in the past and we're still here.

The true purpose of environmentalism is to scare us into socialism. I always say follow the money. I can amend that to follow the power. Socialism is not a system that works well for the people that have to live under it. It is a system that can be manipulated to give a few enormous power and wealth and that is why so many people support it. They think they will be the ones that get the power and wealth, but for most they will be disappointed. Few of Lenin's fellow revolutionaries survived. As successful revolutionaries, they were just too dangerous for Lenin to allow them to survive. The same will be true for the vast majority of those who are using the environmental religion to advance their socialistic cause.

People, who value their religion, must stop the godless socialists. People who value freedom must stop the environmentalist who would steal it. All people must stop the anti-human zealots that would "save" the planet for less deserving plants and animals.

Some of the political aspects of the environmental movement are explored in Vaclav Klaus' book Blue Planet in Green Shackles. Klaus is a former president of the Czech Republic.

In Iain Murphy's book The Really Inconvenient Truths, Murray points out (quoting from the CEI website):

  • How ethanol, the liberals' favorite fuel, is destroying the world's rainforests--and could cause global food shortages
  • How Al Gore's hero Rachel Carson cost the lives of millions of Africans through her efforts to ban DDT
  • How the environmentalists have covered up the polluting effects of contraceptive and chemical abortion drugs
  • How the Endangered Species Act actually endangers species
  • How Gore's vision of greater state control over the economy has already produced some of the greatest environmental disasters in history

Its interesting to not that even the World Health Organization is now in favor of legalizing DDT to combat the epidemic of malaria in Africa. It also should be pointed out that the mosquito that carries malaria is found in the U.S.! Malaria could easily be transferred from Africa or South America to the United States if it is not controlled soon.
