Posted on 02/15/2011 2:31:07 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife
One of the primary pioneering theorists on apocalyptic global warming is Guenther Schwab (1902-2006), an Austrian Nazi.[i] In 1958, Schwab wrote a fictional novel built off of Goethe's (1749-1832) Faustian religious play entitled "Dance with the Devil." While a few scientists since the late 1800's had contemplated the possibility of minor global warming coming from industrial pollution, Schwab used Goethe's dramatic approach to convert the theory into an apocalyptic crisis. The book outlines many looming environmental emergencies, including anthropogenic global warming. Guenther Schwab's very popular novel was an apocalyptic game changer. By the early 1970's, it had been translated into several languages and had sold over a million copies.
Later, Guenther Schwab joined the advisory panel of "The Society of Biological Anthropology, Eugenics and Behavior Research." Schwab was especially concerned with the burgeoning population explosion of the Third World that he was sure would eventually overrun Europe. By advocating modern racial science based on genetics, Schwab believed that the population bomb, together with its associated environmental degradation, could be averted. Here, Schwab shows his basic commitment to the Nazi SS doctrine of blood and soil' -- an explosive concoction of eugenics and environmentalism loaded with eco-imperialistic ambitions that had devastating consequences on the Eastern Front in World War II.
The success of Schwab's book helped him to establish an international environmental organization called "The World League for the Defense of Life." Not surprisingly, Werner Haverbeck, former Hitler Youth member and Nazi environmental leader of the Reich's League for Folk National Character and Landscape, later became the chairman of Schwab's organization. In 1973, Haverbeck blamed the environmental crisis in Germany on American capitalism. It was an unnatural colonial import that had infected Germany like a deadly foreign body........

I was explaining that to my son just tonight. I was talking with my daughter about her teacher marking her wrong when my daughter said “the Federalists from 1780 would be considered Democrats today. Examples being National Health Care and higher taxes.” (I’m waiting to discuss this with the teacher once I get her test back.) I even told my daughter that “Except a Democrat of today will THINK that they are “anti-Federalist” - being for the “little guy” and the “working man”.
And then told my son (writing a paper on Hitler) how the Liberals of today would say that Hitler, and all Dictators, are like Republicans.
Although like I told my daughter, the Republicans of today are also “big government” - so perhaps it is the Tea Party and Libertarians that are more like the anti-Federalists of our early years.
My way of thinking is that the Democrats are a drunk, gamboling, womanizer married man and Republicans are the accepting, doormat, vomit cleaning wife who always says this is the last time...it’s got to stop....( but never does anything )
True enough! My wife was just telling me about how she and some of her friends want to do an intervention of a gal that drinks, and they want the husband to get involved. I told her I’m not sure how much he will be for it (enabler), and better to get a third party involved. (Hmmmm.....!)
(starting at 45:26 into the 51:19 interview)
Dian Rehms question to James Hansen (NASA): Are you calling for trials for energy company executives. James Hanses says, CEOs are guilty of crimes against humanity if they continue to dispute what is understood scientifically and continue to fund contrarians.
In closing remarks to an annual conference of around 300 scientific civil servants on 3 February, in London, Beddington said that selective use of science ought to be treated in the same way as racism and homophobia. We are grossly intolerant, and properly so, of racism. We are grossly intolerant, and properly so, of people who [are] anti-homosexuality...We are notand I genuinely think we should think about how we do thisgrossly intolerant of pseudo-science, the building up of what purports to be science by the cherry-picking of the facts and the failure to use scientific evidence and the failure to use scientific method, he said.
Beddington said he intends to take this agenda forward with his fellow chief scientists and also with the research councils. I really believe that... we need to recognise that this is a pernicious influence, it is an increasingly pernicious influence and we need to be thinking about how we can actually deal with it.
I really would urge you to be grossly intolerant...We should not tolerate what is potentially something that can seriously undermine our ability to address important problems.
There are enough difficult and important problems out there without having to deal with what is politically or morally or religiously motivated nonsense.
Ben Goldacre, a science journalist and medical doctor, agrees. Society has been far too tolerant of politicians, lobbyists, and journalists wilfully misusing science, distorting evidence by cherry-picking data that suits their view, giving bogus authority to people who misrepresent the absolute basics of science, and worse, he told Research Fortnight. This distorted evidence has real world implications, because people need good evidence to make informed decisions on policy, health, and more. Beddington is frustrated, and rightly so: for years Ive had journalists and politicians repeatedly try to brush my concerns on these issues under the carpet."
Scientists need to fight back, he says.
In closing, Beddington said: Id urge you, and this is a kind of strange message to go out, but go out and be much more intolerant. He asked his audience to forgive him for what appear to have been unscripted remarks, adding: But it is a thing that has been very much at the forefront of my mind over the last few months and I think we need to do it.
“But there is one thing I can predict to eaters of meat - that the world of the future will be vegetarian!” - Adolf Hitler November 11, 1941. This was spoken on an evening when Hitler was sure that the Russians were on the ropes at the gates of Moscow. According to Robert Proctor, both Hitler and Himmler had plans to make Germany vegan after the war. Even Goebbels was a vegetarian, but the biggest vegetarian Nazi was Rudolf Hess.
There can be no doubt that for the most part, Hitler was a vegetarian. Hitlers Table Talk:1941-44 shows that Hitler routinely claimed to be a vegetarian, p. 156, 168, 176-77, 333-34, 430-31, 465, 483. While Proctor shows that there is some testimony that suggests that Hitler also ate sausage, dumplings, ham, and some seafood on occasion, it still cannot be denied that he became a vegetarian at some point in his political career. See Proctor, The Nazi War on Cancer, pp. 134-141.
George Soros -- whom we're always told is not serving his own economic interests at all by promoting liberal politicians and big-government policies -- is launching a new investment fund that plans to profit off of the "green energy" boom, which is entirely dependent on government subsidies supported by the groups Soros funds.
As the press release puts it, this fund will "leverage technology and business model innovation to improve energy efficiency, reduce waste and emissions, harness renewable energy, and more efficiently use natural resources, among other applications." As Soros puts it in the same release: Developing alternative sources of energy and achieving greater energy efficiency is both a significant global investment opportunity and an environmental imperative. Cadie Thompson at CNBC's NetNet flagged this.
So, yeah. The big-government policies advanced by the liberal outfits he funds -- like Center for American Progress -- will enrich the companies in which Soros is investing.
But this story gets better.
The press release casually mentions whom Soros is hiring to run this new fund: Cathy Zoi.
Zoi was Barack Obama's "Acting Under Secretary for Energy and Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy." An Al Gore acolyte, Zoi was Obama's point-woman on subsidizing green tech. Now she's going to work for George Soros to profit off of subsidized green tech.
If you remember Zoi's name, it's because of another green-tech conflict of interest: Zoi's husband is an executive at a window company, Serious Windows, which the White House regularly held up as a "poster child of green industry."
