Mark Levin talked about this last night. You can hear it right here. This comes from the first hour of his show. In the LA Times, October 22nd, 1989, David M Graber, a research biologist with the National Park Service, wrote the following: Mother Nature as a Hothouse Flower : THE END OF NATURE by Bill McKibben
(Paragraph 9)There is no chalk line between man and nature that we have crossed. We contaminated the planet with atmospheric hydrocarbons and metals beginning with the Industrial Revolution. The Atomic Age wrote another indelible signature in radioisotopes on every bit of the Earth's surface. DDT and its kin appear even in the Antarctic ice.
(Paragraph 10)I, for one, cannot wish upon either my children or the rest of Earth's biota a tame planet, a human-managed planet, be it monstrous or--however unlikely--benign.
We are not interested in the utility of a particular species, or free-flowing river, or ecosystem, to mankind. They have intrinsic value, more value--to me--than another human body, or a billion of them.
(Paragraph 11)Human happiness, and certainly human fecundity, are not as important as a wild and healthy planet. I know social scientists who remind me that people are part of nature, but it isn't true. Somewhere along the line--at about a billion years ago, maybe half that--we quit the contract and became a cancer. We have become a plague upon ourselves and upon the Earth.
(Paragraph 12)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.
Now, I'm not projecting one bit with the hammer and sickle here. The other thing that Levin references in this audio(and on the same page as David Graber's nonsense) is this:
Guided by a philosophy of deep ecology, Earth First! does not accept a human-centered worldview of "nature for people's sake." Instead, we believe that life exists for its own sake, that industrial civilization and its philosophy are anti-Earth, anti-woman and anti-liberty. Our structure is non-hierarchical, and we reject highly paid "professional staff" and formal leadership.
To put it simply, the Earth must come first.
Now, how this becomes relevant to the hammer and sickle is the banner that you will see at the top of this page: (I made a copy of this banner because leftists are notorious for revisionist history, scrubbing the internet of inconvenient things)
Even the most basic knowledge of communist imagery will allow people to recognize that fist sitting right there. Looks like Vaclav Klaus was right all along claiming that communism and environmentalism are alike. Unless you think that just happened, no connection at all. The left will honestly tell you everything you need to know about them, if you just know where to look.
If only there were a virus that killed only Muslims and liberals......
There are hidden contradictions within the minds of people who love nature while deploring the artificialities with which Man has spoiled Nature. The obvious contradiction lies in their choice of words, which imply that Man and his artifacts are not part of Nature--but beavers and their damns are. But the contradictions go deeper than this prima-facie absurdity. In declaring his love for a beaver damn (erected by beavers for beavers purposes) and his hatred for dams erected by men (for the purpose of men) the Naturist reveals his hatred for his own race--i.e., his own self-hatred. In the case of Naturists such selfhatred is understandable; they are such a sorry lot. But hatred is too strong an emotion to feel toward them; pity and contempt are the most they rate. As for me, willy-nilly I am a man, not a beaver, and H. Sapiens is the only race I have or can have. Fortunately for me, I like being part of a race made up of men and women-- it strikes me as a fine arrangement and perfectly natural. Believe it or not, there were Naturists who opposed the first flight to old Earths Moon as being unnatural and a despoiling of nature.
Another parasite on the butt of civilization.
I assume he couldn't qualify to find a real job?
He earned that oscar nomination and multiple world awards.
Waterkeepers = Another numbnuts Kennedy telling people how to live.
Locally the waterkeepers are telling people that our injection wells are pumping dangerous chemicals and even radioactive materials into the ground.
Its pure BS. They’re pumping NATURAL brine water out of the ground in one place and pumping it back into the ground a few miles away to push oil and gas toward the wells.
I grew up here and they’ve been doing it for my whole life. I have a friend who drives a brine truck for a living and he never goes more than 10 miles from pumping the water out of the ground to where he pumps it back into the ground.
A quick look at history will tell us that Leftists have a strong addiction to blood letting. Look at modern day China; they are still at it. Look at our country and the fanatics who celebrate abortion and constantly search for the power to kill more people in the name of collective management. Take a look at our own government acting out carelessly at the airports and the death committees of Obamacare.
Globalists are of this social ideology, too. They want to kill, err, I mean, manage a collective humanity and earth resources, on a global level. Whether there will be economic capitalism or communism is up for grabs. But the culture they have chosen is that of communism.
