    This week marks the 44th anniversary of Earth Day. In years past, the day has been marked with great media fanfare and attention. This week, it marched by with little mention. This is not so much a reflection of any lack of interest in the Earth, but a reflection of how mainstream and ongoing the topics of recycling, reclaiming and sustainability have become. They are now part of our daily lives, rather than a topic to be raised once a year. For the first Earth Day, in 1970, the Keep America Beautiful organization ran a commercial that portrayed what...
  • Tragic Earth Day news for green propagandists: Americans believe in God than man-made global warming

    More Americans believe in God than in man-made global warming ... how remarkably resilient Americans are in the face of relentless environmental brainwashing. The schools, the universities, the government, the green NGOs, Hollywood and the MSM have invested billions of man hours and dollars trying to persuade them that climate change is the greatest threat of our age. But according to this survey, only 33 per cent are buying it - ... all the latest research suggests that the importance of CO2 and other greenhouse gases has been grossly exaggerated in the various computer models predicting catastrophic global warming, which...

    Happy Earth Day! April 22nd is the day when President Obama and the rest of the gang demonstrate their commitment to saving the planet by flying in to plant a tree somewhere. And say what you like but, when you're looking for fellows who know how to dig a huge hole, Obama and Harry Reid are pretty much at the top of the list. My township in New Hampshire is 90 per cent forested, but you can never have too many trees, so on Earth Day I always like to plant a couple more, get the tree cover in my...
  • Earth Day: Hail Fossil Fuels, Energy Of The Future

    On Earth Day, according to various advocates, "events are held worldwide to increase awareness and appreciation of the Earth's natural environment." As we observe the event Tuesday, it might be a good time to appreciate the fact that Americans get most of their plentiful, affordable energy directly from the Earth's "natural environment" in the form of fossil fuels (coal, natural gas, and petroleum). It's largely those energy sources that fuel our vehicles and airplanes; heat, cool and light our homes and businesses; power our nation's factories; and in the process significantly raise our standard of living. Shouldn't that be part...

    The first Earth Day, in 1970, was celebrated after a wave of environmentalism swept the nation. Many give credit to Rachel Carson's 1962 book, "Silent Spring," which popularized the notion of large-scale chemical pollution, for igniting the movement. But she was really feeding off of a concept developed a few years earlier. The "precautionary principle" was conceptualized when the National Academy of Sciences proposed a radical change in the risk assessment of exposure to radiation and carcinogens. It recommended changing the regulatory paradigm from a "threshold dose" model to a linear one.

    Today, masses of human beings around the globe will celebrate the worship of the earth ... not God ... not the creator—but the creation. Rocks will be worshiped, rivers will be worshiped, trees will be worshiped, the sun will be worshiped, fish, snails, spiders, and all sorts of creeping things will be worshiped today. Grown-up, adult, men and women will bow down to “THINGS,” to idols, in fealty to a god of their own creation. They will offer their lives in service to, well, NOTHING. And these are grown-up people, adults, human beings you would think would have the intelligence...

    MILWAUKEE - Gaylord Nelson, the former governor and U.S. senator from Wisconsin who founded Earth Day and helped spawn the modern environmental movement, died Sunday. He was 89. Nelson died of cardiovascular failure at his home in Kensington, Md., a Washington suburb, said Bill Christofferson, Nelson's biographer and a family spokesman. "He died peacefully. His wife was with him," Christofferson said. Thirty-five years after the first Earth Day, April 22 is still a day on which many people plant trees, clean up trash and lobby for a clean environment. A conservationist years before it became fashionable, Nelson was recognized as...

    Monday, April 22, is Earth Day. Begun in 1970, it led to the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency, along with the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. It is the global platform for the Big Lie that carbon dioxide (CO2) is causing the Earth to warm and the basis of the environmental movement’s ceaseless efforts to reduce the use of energy for any reason.

  • British Court Deifies Gaia for Earth Day

    04/22/2010 11:33:04 AM PDT · by Ed Hudgins · 7 replies · 333+ views
    It’s appropriate that for Earth Day a British court has essentially confirmed Gaia’s status as a goddess who is worshiped by eco-acolyte. What so many have observed—that beliefs about the environment have morphed into a new cult—is now being openly acknowledged by its members. And like all cults, this one rots human brains and endangers the human species. First, the case: Tim Nicholson was an environmental sustainability expert working for Grainger, the UK’s largest residential landlord. He was fired, he maintained, because of his views on global warming and a list of environmental issues about which he harangued his bosses....

    [Snip]It is no accident that April 22, Earth Day, is also the birth date of Vladimir Lenin, an acolyte of Karl Marx, the lunatic who invented communism as an alternative to capitalism. [Snip] Earth Day is naked communism. [Snip] To begin, it substitutes a worship of the Earth, Gaia, for the worship of God, creator of the universe and the instructor of moral behavior for mankind. [Snip] It is the infrastructure of a New World Order. Do not celebrate Earth Day. Denounce it.[Snip]

    Failed warnings of doom do not deter new ones. THURSDAY is Lenin's Birthday. It will be celebrated around the world as Earth Day, a holiday begun by Democratic Sen. Gaylord Nelson in 1970 to keep anti-capitalist sentiment going after the Vietnam War ended. The Earth Day trippers have run out of pollution and are now attacking carbon dioxide - the air we exhale. Which reminds me, the biggest polluters in the world turned out to be the communist states of China, the Soviet Union and the Eastern bloc nations. The Aral Sea is 90 percent smaller than it was before...

    Few adults may know it, but kids across the country are about to celebrate a holiday: Earth Day, which is April 22. Schools will take a break from normal instruction to discuss the importance of preserving the environment. That may sound like a harmless activity, but too often Earth Day becomes a platform for pushing an ideological brand of environmentalism. Parents need to pay attention and ask their children's teachers what's their plans are for Earth Day. Unlike most holidays, Earth Day expressly focuses on youth. No gifts will be exchanged and no Easter Bunny will deliver jelly beans in...

    Each Sunday, worshippers file into the York-Ogunquit United Methodist Church beneath a cross and, since February, a symbol of another sort. The church's roof is now partly covered by an array of solar panels that make electricity to run the lights and heat inside the sanctuary. It's perhaps the most visible evidence yet of a growing environmental ethic spreading through Maine's religious communities. "Certainly we want to lower our power bill," said William Wieting, chairman of church's board of trustees. "But the enthusiasm didn't derive from the monetary value to the church as much as it was the right thing...
