Here are some outrageous and racist comments by environmentalists. These are compiled and documented in my book Eco-Freaks: Environmentalism Is Hazardous to Your Health.
John Muir, founder of the Sierra Club: Muir said American Indians are mostly ugly, and some of them altogether hideous. They seemed to have no right place in the landscape, he continued. Muir is still honored without qualification on the Sierra Club web site, which proclaims, John Muir is as relevant today as he was over 100 years ago.
Paul Ehrlich, influential overpopulation guru and professor of population studies at Stanford University: In his best-selling book, The Population Bomb, Ehrlich called for all men in India who had three or more children to be forcibly sterilized. He also scorned those who helped to feed the Third Worlds hungry, blasting them as the assorted do-gooders who are deeply involved in the apparatus of international food charity.
Charles Wurster, co-founder and former chief scientist of Environmental Defense Fund (now Environmental Defense): When asked about human deaths that would result from the banning of DDT, due to exposure to more acutely toxic DDT subsitutes, Wurster allegedly said, It doesnt really make a lot of difference because the organophosphate acts locally and only kills farm workers, and most of them are Mexicans and Negroes. Wurster was accused of saying this by EDF co-founder Victor Yannacone, and the accusation was reported at a Congressional hearing. Wurster denied making the statement, but Yannacone a prominent environmental attorney has never taken back his accusation against Wurster.
Alexander King, co-founder of the Club of Rome: In an essay in a book called The Discipline of Curiosity, King wrote that DDTs main problem was that it worked too well at saving Third World lives. In Guyana, within almost two years, it had almost eliminated malaria, but at the same time the birth rate had doubled. So my chief quarrel with DDT in hindsight is that it greatly added to the population problem.
Jeff Hoffman, poster on popular environmental news site Grist.org: Arguing against efforts to resume DDT use to combat malaria in Africa, Hoffman explained, Malaria was actually a natural population control, and DDT has caused a massive population explosion in some places where it has eradicated malaria.
Don Imus has taken a lot of grief for his inappropriate remarks, but the media have yet to hold environmentalists like these individuals accountable for their pattern of vicious and bigoted comments. The worst part is that unlike Imus, the ill will of many environmentalists toward minorities and humans in general has been allowed to influence destructive public policy decisions, such as the DDT ban and the lack of flood protection for New Orleans.
Its time that environmentalists be called on the carpet, like everyone else is, when they make these horrible remarks about disadvatanaged groups.
Wasn’t there a science dope a year ago who advocated killing a portion of the human race?
I assume you are referring to the eminent Princeton University ethicist, Professor Peter Singer.
But did say nappy-headed?
Or another one, University of Texas (Austin) Professor Pianka who teaches his students what a great idea it would be to release ebola to kill off 90% of the world's population.
Is he volunteering to be part of the 90%? Didn’t think so...
Like Islamic clerics, he ain't volunteerin' for nuthin'.
And another thing, if you go to www.idpr which is the Illinois professional license site where you can verify if a person has a license to be an architect for instance, you can find a professional license categore for Euthenasia. Go look it up.
Thanks for posting. Environmentalism is core Marxist doctrine and follows the political agenda of extermination of undesirable species.
Let’s not forget that the Patron Saint of the Feminist Left said that civilization needs to be protected from genetically inferior people: Negroes, Jews and southern Europeans.They are human weeds.

Environmentalist Wacko Quotes
By John Hawkins
Environmentalist wackos are anti-progress, anti-capitalism, anti-American, anti-poor, make spectacularly incorrect predictions about the climate, and quite frankly some of these people have MORE FRIGHTENING beliefs than al-Queda (I haven't heard any Al-Queda spokesmen talk longingly about a planet without humans on it). You may think I'm exaggerating, but you won't after you read these quotes...
Attack Of The Socialist-Luddites
The right to have children should be a marketable commodity, bought and traded by individuals but absolutely limited by the state. - Kenneth Boulding, originator of the "Spaceship Earth" concept (as quoted by William Tucker in Progress and Privilege, 1982)
We have wished, we ecofreaks, for a disaster or for a social change to come and bomb us into Stone Age, where we might live like Indians in our valley, with our localism, our appropriate technology, our gardens, our homemade religion -- guilt-free at last! -- Stewart Brand (writing in the Whole Earth Catalogue
Free Enterprise really means rich people get richer. They have the freedom to exploit and psychologically rape their fellow human beings in the process . . . Capitalism is destroying the earth. -- Helen Caldicott, Union of Concerned Scientists
We must make this an insecure and inhospitable place for capitalists and their projects . . . We must reclaim the roads and plowed land, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of tens of millions of acres of presently settled land. -- David Foreman, Earth First!
Everything we have developed over the last 100 years should be destroyed. -- Pentti Linkola
If you ask me, it'd be a little short of disastrous for us to discover a source of clean, cheap, abundant energy because of what we would do with it. We ought to be looking for energy sources that are adequate for our needs, but that won't give us the excesses of concentrated energy with which we could do mischief to the earth or to each other. -- Amory Lovins in The Mother Earth - Plowboy Interview, Nov/Dec 1977, p. 22
The only real good technology is no technology at all. Technology is taxation without representation, imposed by our elitist species (man) upon the rest of the natural world -- John Shuttleworth
What we've got to do in energy conservation is try to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, to have approached global warming as if it is real means energy conservation, so we will be doing the right thing anyway in terms of economic policy and environmental policy. -- Timothy Wirth, former U.S. Senator (D-Colorado)
Kill 'Em All And Let God Sort 'Em Out
I suspect that eradicating small pox was wrong. It played an important part in balancing ecosystems. -- John Davis, editor of Earth First! Journal
Human beings, as a species, have no more value than slugs. -- John Davis, editor of Earth First! Journal
The extinction of the human species may not only be inevitable but a good thing....This is not to say that the rise of human civilization is insignificant, but there is no way of showing that it will be much help to the world in the long run. -- Economist editorial
We advocate biodiversity for biodiversitys sake. It may take our extinction to set things straight -- David Foreman, Earth First!
Phasing out the human race will solve every problem on earth, social and environmental. -- Dave Forman, Founder of Earth First!
If radical environmentalists were to invent a disease to bring human populations back to sanity, it would probably be something like AIDS -- Earth First! Newsletter
Human happiness, and certainly human fecundity, is not as important as a wild and healthy planets...Some of us can only hope for the right virus to come along. -- David Graber, biologist, National Park Service
The collective needs of non-human species must take precedence over the needs and desires of humans. -- Dr. Reed F. Noss, The Wildlands Project
If I were reincarnated, I would wish to be returned to Earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels. -- Prince Phillip, World Wildlife Fund
Cannibalism is a "radical but realistic solution to the problem of overpopulation." -- Lyall Watson, The Financial Times, 15 July 1995
Poverty For 'Those People'
We, in the green movement, aspire to a cultural model in which killing a forest will be considered more contemptible and more criminal than the sale of 6-year-old children to Asian brothels. -- Carl Amery
Every time you turn on an electric light, you are making another brainless baby -- Helen Caldicott, Union of Concerned Scientists
To feed a starving child is to exacerbate the world population problem -- Lamont Cole
If there is going to be electricity, I would like it to be decentralized, small, solar-powered -- Gar Smith -- editor of the Earth Island Institute's online magazine The Edge
The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States: We can't let other countries have the same number of cars, the amount of industrialization, we have in the U.S. We have to stop these Third World countries right where they are. And it is important to the rest of the world to make sure that they don't suffer economically by virtue of our stopping them. -- Michael Oppenheimer, Environmental Defense Fund
The continued rapid cooling of the earth since WWII is in accord with the increase in global air pollution associated with industrialization, mechanization, urbanization and exploding population. -- Reid Bryson, "Global Ecology; Readings towards a rational strategy for Man", (1971)
The battle to feed humanity is over. In the 1970s, the world will undergo famines. Hundreds of millions of people are going to starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now. Population control is the only answer -- Paul Ehrlich - The Population Bomb (1968)
I would take even money that England will not exist in the year 2000 -- Paul Ehrlich in (1969)
In ten years all important animal life in the sea will be extinct. Large areas of coastline will have to be evacuated because of the stench of dead fish. -- Paul Ehrlich, Earth Day (1970)
Before 1985, mankind will enter a genuine age of scarcity . . . in which the accessible supplies of many key minerals will be facing depletion -- Paul Ehrlich in (1976)
This [cooling] trend will reduce agricultural productivity for the rest of the century -- Peter Gwynne, Newsweek 1976
There are ominous signs that the earth's weather patterns have begun to change dramatically and that these changes may portend a drastic decline in food production - with serious political implications for just about every nation on earth. The drop in food production could begin quite soon... The evidence in support of these predictions has now begun to accumulate so massively that meteorologist are hard-pressed to keep up with it. -- Newsweek, April 28, (1975)
This cooling has already killed hundreds of thousands of people. If it continues and no strong action is taken, it will cause world famine, world chaos and world war, and this could all come about before the year 2000. -- Lowell Ponte "The Cooling", 1976
If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder by the year 2000...This is about twice what it would take to put us in an ice age. -- Kenneth E.F. Watt on air pollution and global cooling, Earth Day (1970)
Commie, enviro. Watermelons. Green on the outside, red inside.
“Lets not forget that the Patron Saint of the Feminist Left said that civilization needs to be protected from genetically inferior people: Negroes, Jews and southern Europeans.They are human weeds.
Not true. An often passed around falsehood.
Western civilization was built on “exemplum” as the basis of communication and education. That is, examples of virtue were studied and emulated. all this negativity crowds out attention to virtuous examples which raises people up.
"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." - Manuel II Palelologus
That UK Channel 4 documentary, I think, shows the correlation of the rise in radical environmentalism with the fall of the Berlin Wall and collapse of communism. All the crazies who hate the US/West and were sympathetic to the Commies joined the next "movement" and it just reinforces itself. Also take a look at the bio of a guy by the name of Maurice Strong (check wikipedia) -- he's really the guy behind all this, having worked the NGOs and the UN and the World Bank, etc. etc. to make a fortune off of these "movements" -- and he now has a leadership role (maybe CEO) of one of these carbon-offset companies that will benefit from all the eco guilt the stupid lefties in the US are displaying. It really is quite scary.
Michael Creighton also points out this correlation (fall of communism and the rise of extremist environmentalism) in his latest novel.
As for the Nazi's, a lot of crazies embraced that philosophy as well -- rationalizing that Hitler pulled Germany out of the depression faster than most countries... just another example of lefties seeking simple solutions through government power when the reality shows centralized government actions always fail in comparison with the free market.
Don’t forget Margaret Sanger...anti-Semitic...anti-black eugenic pusher who started PLANNED PARENTHOOD!!!
Do you Google FR to find all this good old stuff???

One of her most famous quotes is:
We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members. Margaret Sangers December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts
