And if you REALLY want to be scared to death of the “Earth First” agenda and the hidden intent by San Fran Nan, Nostrilitis Waxman, and Barack Hussein Obongo Obama, then read the quotes at the end of THIS piece:
Here are some interesting questions made by two readers at the WattsUpWithThat website:
Why have temperatures been cooling since 2003?
What proof do you have that CO2 forcing is greater than water vapors?
Prove to scientists that CO2 stays in the lower and upper tropospheres more
than a year?
Why do all the temperature charts over the past ten years record a cyclical
pattern for temperatures?
Why do multidecadal cycles in the oceans correlate extremely well with the
solar cycles and global temperatures?
Is Ocean Heat Content increasing?
Are sea surface temperatures increasing?
Is sea level rising?
Is there any case in the geologic record when a spike in C02 has come before a spike in temperature?
Are we in the midst of a solar minimum that many of our best scientists anticipate being similar to the Dalton Minimum or even the Maunder Minimum?
Can solar minima be seen to have affected climate in the past?
Also some interesting quotes - from the other side of the debate:
* Jacques-Yves Cousteau, environmentalist and documentary maker: Its terrible to have to say this. World population must be stabilized, and to do that we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. This is so horrible to contemplate that we shouldnt even say it. But the general situation in which we are involved is lamentable.
* John Davis, editor of Earth First! Journal: I suspect that eradicating smallpox was wrong. It played an important part in balancing ecosystems.
* Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University population biologist: Were at 6 billion people on the Earth, and thats roughly three times what the planet should have. About 2 billion is optimal.
* David Foreman, founder of Earth First!: Phasing out the human race will solve every problem on earth, social and environmental.
* David M. Graber, research biologist for the National Park Service: It is cosmically unlikely that the developed world will choose to end its orgy of fossil-energy consumption, and the Third World its suicidal consumption of landscape. Until such time as Homo sapiens should decide to rejoin nature, some of us can only hope for the right virus to come along.
* Alexander King, founder of the Malthusian Club of Rome: My own doubts came when DDT was introduced. In Guyana, within two years, it had almost eliminated malaria. So my chief quarrel with DDT, in hindsight, is that it has greatly added to the population problem.
* Merton Lambert, former spokesman for the Rockefeller Foundation: The world has a cancer, and that cancer is man.
* John Muir, founder of the Sierra Club: Honorable representatives of the great saurians of older creation, may you long enjoy your lilies and rushes, and be blessed now and then with a mouthful of terror-stricken man by way of a dainty!
* Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh, leader of the World Wildlife Fund: If I were reincarnated I would wish to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels.
* Maurice Strong, U.N. environmental leader: Isnt the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isnt it our responsibility to bring that about?
* Ted Turner, CNN founder, UN supporter, and environmentalist: A total population of 250300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.
* Paul Watson, a founder of Greenpeace: I got the impression that instead of going out to shoot birds, I should go out and shoot the kids who shoot birds.
The preceding list of quotes is from The Mosquito: Environmentalisms Weapon of Mass Destruction.
Those quotes are all fine examples of what, in Buddhism, is called "demon mind." Just sayin' FWIW.
I find it amazing that these envirojerk elites always want to volunteer *others* to make their population reduction quotas.
