The woman who buys sneakers made of recycled tires isn't shopping, she's engaged in an ethical communion with the earth. Environmentalism is the theology of consumerism, uplifting it rather than proscribing it, taking a cut of ordinary economic activities in exchange for its blessing. Environmentalism is the religion of the comfortable, and the theology of the convenient.

Trendy hypocrisy. The coal and oil that environuts decry and demonize keeps them all in their electric cars and green space.

“Environmentalism is the theology of consumerism, uplifting it rather than proscribing it, taking a cut of ordinary economic activities in exchange for its blessing. Environmentalism is the religion of the comfortable, and the theology of the convenient.”

I’m not sure what ‘environmentalism’ is in this context, but anyone who designs ways of harnessing waste streams for the purpose of generating new value from them is called either ‘inventor’ or ‘engineer’. Environmentalists, from deep personal experience, use ‘The Environment’ as a cover for anti-capitalism. They confiscate property they don’t own to stop economic growth and to enrich their own members.

The Sierra Club and the Nature Conservancy accumulate property which they manage in portfolios. Look them up. The Nature Conservancy is a $5B company with revenues in excess of $100M/year.

Environmentalism, for the most part, is either communism, or failing that, anti-capitalism.

What it IS NOT, is scientific in any way, shape, form or fashion.
