ENVIROMENTAL -

RADICAL GREENS HARM THE EARTH MORE THAN THEY HELP

By MAX SCHULZ

April 20, 2008 -- Tuesday is Earth Day, the calendar's High Holy Day of Green theology. With each passing year, environmentalism more clearly assumes the trappings of a secular religion. Now, along comes Iain Murray to assert that the Green God is dead.

Murray's new book, "The Really Inconvenient Truths: Seven Environmental Catastrophes Liberals Don't Want You to Know About - Because They Helped Cause Them," clarifies...

The so called “environmentalist movement” has nothing to do with the environment. It is one of many methods socialists use to enact more regulations that will bring the U.S. to its knees by replacing our democratic republic with socialism.

Another problem that the government won't talk about is the increase in Lyme Disease caused by deer ticks. They won't cull the deer herd, and won't use chemicals against ticks.

Don't bother going to Cape Cod or the Berkshires in Massachusetts. Lyme carrying deer ticks are everywhere. The state doesn't tell you this because it might hurt the tourist industry.

I have a commute twice as long as my husband’s drive. So I’m taking the Excursion to work that day.

False Religions have a short shelf life but can do a great deal of damage before they sour.

Amazon: From the Inside Flap
Al Gore is bad for the planet...
Talk about really inconvenient truths--that's one of the many you'll find in Iain Murray's rollicking exposé of environmental blowhards who waste more energy, endanger more species, and actually kill more people (yes, that's right) than the environmental villains they finger. Did you know that estrogen from birth control and "morning after" pills is causing male fish across America to develop female sex organs? Funny how "pro-choice" and "environmentalist" liberals never talk about that.

I've never heard of the estrogen link. Only Catholic websites write about it:

From the link:
"...environmentalism has become a socio-political movement exploiting people's genuine regard for nature as a smokescreen for expanding government and exercising power. And the results have been disastrous for both humanity and the environment."

That is funny. I didn’t necesarily need George Carlin to verify what I already knew, but I’m thankful he’s on my side.

The idea that insignificant human beings on a planet can change the weather caused by a distant star made of up of Hydrogen and Helium that is 800 times larger than Earth...doesn’t even pass the laugh test.

It would take very stupid people, biased grant junkies and a deluge of MSM brainwashing to convince anyone that it was possible.

And they’ve pulled it off! It is working.

I Remember the First Earth Day Well @ Belomont Plateau overlooking Center City Philly! What a Disaster it was For Global Cooling!!

I later Moved to Florida for a spell and rememeber them Dumping 2 Million Tires as Natural reefs... Ooops that turned out to be an environmental Disaster...

Meanwhile Jacque Cousteau told the world that the Sea Was Going to turn to Molasses by 2000

The Tree Huggers told us we Couldn’t cut down Old Trees or Clear Brush around Trees until someone finally explained only young growing trees scub the environment! we now have More Trees than 100 years ago... but don’t let that ruin a Good rant!

I always would like the environmentalist to explain why Leif erickson Had to leave Greenland because it was Flooded From Glacier Cap melting... Was it Fossil Fuel or The SUV??

Happy Earth Day... Lets follow the Natural order like environmentalist Demand!! Then Lets have No Homosexuals no homosexual Marriage no Abortion No Contraception!Amen!

I was just talking about the diameter. 800 Earth lined up side by side, would fit the diameter of the sun.

But that’s irrelevant, Hollywood celebrities wiping their ass with leaves can overcome that.

I am watching a Discovery Channel propaganda masquerading as a “expedition of scientists” on the hunt for global warming in Alaska Expedition. Makes me sick. If I used their scientific process I am sure I can prove the exisistence of witches in Salem, the positive medical effect of bleeding and the fact of the sun rotating around the sun.

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

We always called environmentalist, Watermelons because they were green on the outside and Red on the inside.

Great Article... Lists three of the Seven.
Famine, Pestilence and unsafe cars.

The other Five i guess you have to read about.
My guess is...
FIRE (bans on forest clearing
WORLD WAR III (resource shortages)
Politicized Orwellian Science (consensus science that discourages the scientific process)

and ultimatly TYRANNY (the environmentalists solution to the problems they created is a global tyrannical totalitarian utopia complete with reeducation camps and taliban style brownshirts)

It makes sense now why the liberals hold the islamist head choppers in such high regard.

I was watching one of the BBC Planet Earth DVDs over the weekend and began wondering why the penguins travel ~27(?) miles to their breeding ground each year. Why not 3, 5, 12, 19 miles? My theory is that when they first began there was considerably less ice (global warming) and they were traveling a shorter distance from the water to their breeding ground. Even though the ice pack increased (global cooling) over time, they kept returning to the same spot regardless of the distance.

Just thinking outside the box.....
