Some Example Apocalyptic Scenarios Given by Environmentalists Requiring Government Intervention

I think the “global environmental apocalypse” movement really got its start with Silent Spring by Rachel Carson. I read the book in elementary school and was really affected by it. I wanted to save the environment from the evil, exploitive, corporate world. Those villains would kill people just to make a profit!
Ok, so some time later I grew up and saw that corporations don’t really like killing people. Despite the constant characterization by the media, I’ve found that corporations are generally people. Does corporate policy often make them pretty much jerks? Yes, I can name a couple jerks who are corporations, but I can name hundreds of corporations which are good people. None of them callously kill people. If you want someone to callously kill a million people, you probably need a communist or socialist government.
So I learned a couple lies. DDT gives people cancer and DDT kills bald eagles. Worst, it turns out that Ms. Carson knew that these were lies when she wrote them, but preferred to make her case the best way she could. Lying.
Not to say DDT isn’t toxic. I’d seriously recommend against injesting it. It is a poison! I’d also recommend against injesting any bug-spray. The best they have now is “eggshell thining in birds” which basically means that they aren’t taking back the faked studies and “DDT is linked to …” which you can say about roughy any chemical, without evidence. Millions have died due to mosquito borne diseases, easily controlled by DDT.
Acid rain was proven by taking samples of “pristine Canadian lakes.” When those untouched lakes were shown to be acidic, huge and costly changes were made to coal plants. Oddly enough, those lakes are still acidic….turns out the minerals beneath the lake have sulfur in them. Yeah, the geologists making those measurements chose those lakes. It hasn’t been proven that they did so maliciously… but I expect they did. They knew the “Truth” as Ms. Carson did, and made their case the best way they could. by lying.
In the example above, areas of the mountainside are deforested. The mineral content of the soil contains toxins, including aluminum. In certain areas, when plants have depleted local soils, the mineral concentrations cause die-offs. Just because plants are “natural” doesn’t mean they don’t leach the soil or cause local habitat changes. This is taught to college students as “Acid Rain Damage,” though it would happen without the advent of coal-burning technology. The US has cheap-enough energy, but denying the rights of other countries to build coal-burning plants has left billions without power, living in primative conditions – dying without heat and light – when rich countries can afford it.
The ozone hole has been blamed on numerous things, but finally Chloroflourocarbons were singled out and banned. Has it made any difference? No. The chemistry they claimed caused this reaction (destroying ozone) can’t even be replicated in a lab. (Since their “proof” back 20 years ago, which can’t be duplicated today.) Maybe they didn’t know they were wrong when they got the ban instituted, they know now. But, they haven’t changed their stance. They would prefer to lie than be proved wrong. A few people die from heat effects every year, but it does happen, and the banning of cheap air-conditioning is largely to blame.
Global warming is just the latest environmental apocalypse that can only be averted by your money, your taxes. The scientists who generated these models know they are failing to predict anything. The slow cycles which cause periodic high and low temperatures across the Earth continue. There were year zero-ish and year 1000-ish warm periods. The current warm period should still get ~0.5 degrees C warmer to match the previous ones. Anyone with a mild acquaintance with history knows how cold the Elizabethan period was (the Thames froze) and how warm the Roman was. (England was a wine country for the Romans.) There was only one way they could square their global apocalypse with their own personal knowledge. by lying
Frankly, corporations aren’t evil killers. Environmentalists and their socialist buddies are. Let them tell you what power you need, what protection from the weather, what protection from insects, what cures for diseases…they know which of you will be allowed to live.
Vote Socialist – They know whats good for you! (and they’re not afraid to lie about it.)
