ENVIRONMETALIST EXPOSED - DAMNING PROOF OF THEIR TRUE INTENT.
3/31/2004 | Jaysun

Posted on 03/31/2004 2:28:49 AM PST by Jaysun

Many of us have long believed that the true goal of the environmental movement is socialism. Below are just a few examples that provide proof of just that. These documents may be well known to some of you, but I had to go “undercover” as a liberal environmentalist to obtain proof of their motives.

Most of the excerpts shown here are from the Environmental Research Foundation. The Environmental Research Foundation isn’t just some small "fringe" group. No, they distribute their nutty tripe to more than 3,500 (including the EPA and ACLU for example) organizations worldwide. You can see which organizations subscribe to their newsletters by going HERE.

Finally, You can see the archive to many more telling articles by going to their searchable index of newsletters from 1986 to 1998 by going HERE or by going to their current site HERE.

The grass roots environmental movement is engaged in a struggle that cuts to the heart of the American system. The outcome will determine the kind of nation our children inherit. - August 1, 1988 Environmental Research Foundation

“Critics often say there is too much free trade but might not the problem be too little tax? Used well, tax is a civilizing influence on capitalism. It can bring intelligence to the operation of the free market. It can take some of the profits created through trade and redistribute them for public benefit.” -Earth Summit 2002 GREENPEACE

WE STAND IN PERIL OF LOSING OUR LIBERTY AND OUR LIVES--THE HEALTH OF OUR PLANET AND OF OUR CHILDREN--IF WE DO NOT LEARN TO CONTROL CORPORATE BEHAVIOR. THIS MUST BECOME A CENTRAL FOCUS OF OUR WORK, LOCALLY, NATIONALLY, AND WORLDWIDE. THE BEHAVIOR OF CORPORATIONS IS CENTRAL TO EVERY DANGER THAT THREATENS US. THERE IS NO MORE CRUCIAL CHALLENGE THAT WE FACE. - October 21, 1992. Environmental Research Foundation

“It is a curious fact of history that the environmental movement has never focused its attention on the corporate charter as a means of controlling corporate behavior. Now that seems likely to change.” – October 28, 1992 Environmental Research Foundation

“Instead, why doesn't the environmental movement come together to discuss a new strategy --one that asserts the right of a sovereign people to control subordinate entities like corporations? We could lawfully shift the burden of proof onto the purveyors of poisons. We could legitimately deny them the protections of the Bill of Rights. (Rule of thumb: if it doesn't breathe, it isn't protected as a person under the Constitution). We could legally define what corporations can and cannot do. Let's get together and focus our energy on DEFINING (not regulating) corporations.” - July 3, 1997 Environmental Research Foundation

“...we believe we are the master species, and that the rest of creation exists for our benefit. We are free to do with it as we please. This completely wrong idea, this suicidal fantasy, is explored with wit and wisdom in Daniel Quinn's philosophical novel, ISHMAEL (Bantam, 1995). As Quinn sees it, either we will get rid of this deep-seated idea, or this idea will get rid of us.”
“What could we do differently? We could put the burden of proof on those who want to deploy new technologies, similar to the way we put the burden of proof on people who want to sell new pharmaceutical drugs.” – December 26, 1996 Environmental Research Foundation

“These days, environmental fights really boil down to your ability to turn one social institution against another, to whack your adversaries with the biggest institutional 2x4 you can find. The media is one of the best 2x4s around, and one that is accessible to you if you approach it right.” - January 11, 1988 Environmental Research Foundation

By stopping new disposal projects, the price of disposal can be driven up, giving waste creators a real incentive to produce less.
No doubt about it, this strategy is working. The cost of disposal is now anywhere from $500 to $1000 for a ton of hazardous waste, and anywhere from $30 to $120 per ton for municipal solid waste. - October 3, 1991 Environmental Research Foundation

The world's best hope is a citizen's movement bent on reforming the heart of the beast: the corporate charter. The charter is the legal document that gives a company like DuPont the right to exist. If its charter contained language decreeing that it must "Do no harm," DuPont today would stand in real danger of losing its right to exist. This, more than anything else, would get the attention of corporate executives and civilize their behavior. - November 13, 1991 Environmental Research Foundation

Corporations are simply not democratic. Indeed, many corporations are not only UNdemocratic, they are also aggressively ANTI-democratic, seeking to undermine efforts to expand democratic decision-making within the U.S. and in many countries overseas. Corporations tend to be patriarchal (in general). They tend to reinforce and maintain a male chauvinist tradition. - January 22, 1998 Environmental Research Foundation

Most Americans have no idea how rich, powerful, and odious "environmentalist charities" tend to be. To be against "the environment" is like being against motherhood, and under the guise of protecting the environment, some of the most sadistic, cruel, controlling, vindictive, dishonorable petty tyrants have gained enormous power with enormous wealth at their disposal. They use this wealth and power to bully and prey on American citizens. Corrupt politicians are their allies and enablers.

If you are unfortunate enough to get in the way of these people, they will destroy you. They have the means to hire brilliant lawyers, skilled and well trained in the art of persuasion, to devise strategy. Their arguments are exquisite. Their explanations irresistable. If one thing doesn't work, they'll think of another. Sooner or later they'll come up with a strategy that will work, and you'll wish they hadn't.

The less clever who try the same thing wind up in prison for armed robbery.

Robbery? You bet.

Armed? Just try resisting.

Here's a few more tidbits for your collection:

Environment Quotes

The following quotes are taken from a series of articles entitled “Environment, Inc.” written by Tom Knudson, Pulitzer Prize-winning environmental reporter for the Sacramento Bee. The Series ran from April 22 through April 26, 2001.

“It was like a giant corporation. Floor after floor after floor, just like Exxon or AT&T.” Jack Shipley, Oregon conservationist on his visit to the Washington D.C. headquarters of the Wilderness Society.

“In truth, what the environmental community has become is a money machine.” Alfred Runte, author, environmental historian and former board member of the National Parks Conservation Association.

“This is a growth industry—a huge growth industry. There is a lot of wealth that has accumulated in this country over the last 20 years. And people are wanting to do good things with it.” Daniel Beard, Chief Operating Officer at the National Audubon Society

“Dropout rates are high because most members (of environmental organizations) are but passive check writers, with the low cost of participating translating into an equally low sense of commitment. Holding on to such members almost requires that groups maintain a constant sense of crisis. It does not take a cynic to suggest…that direct mailers ship for the next eco-crisis to keep the money coming in.” Christopher Bosso, a political scientist at Northeastern University in Boston.

“We are constantly turning around and trying new themes. We say, ‘OK, well, people like cuddly little animals, they like sequoias.’ We try different premiums, where people can get the backpack versus the tote bag versus the calendar. We tried to raise money around the California desert—and found direct mail deserts don’t work.” Bruce Hamilton, Conservation Director at the Sierra Club

“For an environmental organization, it’s so wrong. It’s not exactly environmentally correct.” Ellen McPeake, Director of Finance and Development at Greenpeace, on the 348,000 pounds of garbage that the Wilderness Society generated in 1999, from its 6.2 million junk mail solicitations.

“Candidly, I am tired of the Wilderness Society and other organizations—and we are a culprit here—constantly preaching gloom and doom.” William Meadows, President of the Wilderness Society, whose signature appears on millions of crisis-related solicitations

“A lot of environmental messages are simply not accurate. But that’s the way we sell messages in this society. We use hype. And we use those pieces of information that sustain our position. I guess all large organizations do that.” Jerry Franklin, Professor of Forest Ecology and Ecosystem Science at the University of Washington

“I contacted everybody and nobody listened. Everybody wants to save dolphins. Turtles aren’t popular. It really gets frustrating.” Carole Allen, who rehabilitates turtles injured in fishing nets, voices her frustration on the lack of support the environmental community has given her

“My wife and I have belonged for many years to the Sierra Club, The Wilderness society and other organizations. And we’ve stopped our memberships….It’s just that I can’t believe what these people say anymore.” Michael Yost, a Professor of Forestry at Feather River College

Anyone who doubts the true socialist/communist agenda of the enviro-fanatics, need only look at what's been happening in Zimbabwe over the past several years.

Robert Mugabe's thugs have been decimating the big game wildlife--often for fun--and destroying the countries game reserves and other natural habitats. Yet there is not one peep out of the so-called environmental protection organizations, nor any protest from the UN which adores and honors Mugabe.

Why does Mugabe get a free pass from those who otherwise get outraged over the displacement of a few snails? Because Robert Mugabe is a Marxist.

Think it through carefully. They will have. Stealth and cunning are important weapons; they use them effectively, and you must also. Try to come out the best way possible; don't self-destruct in a blaze of glory. The Resistance needs you and people like you.

Gee! Your description of "environmentalist charities" could apply to the Clintons, it seems to me!

Their arguments will be exquisite, their powers of persuasion awesome. Everyone will see the logic of driving those people out of their homes so the "environmentalist" will have a pleasant view as they drive by.

No, it doesn't. Stopping ways to dispose of waste legally only gives people the incentive to dump it illegally.

Africans have been decimating wildlife for quite some time. There was a thread a while back with links to an old shockumentary (from the "Mondo Cane" folks) that show massive zebra slaughters in the 60's.

Yet the likes of Jane Goodall continue to try and pin the blame on the "developed world".

"Armed? Just try resisting."

"That is exactly what I will do if these goons show up on my doorstep."

Before they show up in person, you'll get a dandy little piece of paper explaining that they will be fining you at least 450.00 a day for each and every violation, for 30 days. After they've drained your bank account they'll place a lien on everything you thought you owned. Then finally, after you're broke and can't afford food or ammunition, they'll send in the jackbooted thugs to haul your ass off to jail or they will kill you, your choice.
