Environmentalists really don’t want to go there. Just for starters, the death toll resulting from the DDT ban makes Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin look like two naughty little boys who should be slapped firmly on the wrist and sent to bed without dessert.
Unfortunately there is no logical reasoning with these people. They are hysterical about global warming. They can’t have a reasonable discussion about the pros and cons of the DDT ban. They are incapable of the intellectual give and take, or thinking things through. They are simple minded about all of this.
I heard somebody say that Al Gore is the Pope of the Church of Global Warming. He is just so full of himself being the leader of this movement to “save the planet” and all that. Heck the career politician in him didn’t want to run for president again, he’s having too much fun with global warming and getting honors like the Nobel Peace Prize.
Environmentalists like this see the human population as the real issue. It isn’t unrealistic to see a jump from “jail politicians” to “kill the people destroying the environment.”
People with totalitarian mindsets are willing to do whatever it takes to achieve their goals. Right now, we have ELF burning ski resorts and car dealerships. If they gain political power, the same people will be establishing re-education camps and filling mass graves.
