Religion of Environmentalism
|The reason Al
Gore and his friends claim that "the
debate is over" is NOT
because they are basing their beliefs on science.
is because Environmentalism
is the new RELIGION!
it's just Paganism,
or the worship of the Earth.
don't REALLY care about the environment, or poor people starving to death.
All they care
about is making a political statement about the imaginary effects of "Global
Warming" to make themselves feel like they
are doing something to help the Earth, when the TRUTH is that they are making problems worse. It's all about soothing their own guilty egos, and controlling the way the rest of us live.
The most important element of Global Warming isthat it has is faith, because the people who believe in it can't prove it. So, it is nothing more than a religion for people who have not a whole lot of foundation in their lives. They want their lives to have meaning, so they're running around and doing these inconsequential things. They're "mattering," which everybody wants to do.
The whole global warming movement has been based on nothing more than a scare oriented political agenda that was hatched by a bunch of big government liberals.
That's all it's
ever been, and the evidence, if any of you doubted it, could be found in
the Kyoto protocol
which is designed to fleece the United States
other wealthy nations around the world to pay for all the damage that we've
caused, and to enact policies that would weaken our economy because it's
not right to them that we're a wealthy country.
In the seventies
the same people were talking about global cooling, and eventually there
will be be another ice age and the environmentalists will say,
it was brought on by global warming." Whatever
happens, they'll blame it on Global Warming!
If the world warms
it's Global Warming,
If it cools, it will be because of Global
These people have
set us a system, that we cannot question,
that no matter what happens, they will always be right.
actually said that "the internal combustion
engine poses the greatest threat to humanity today."
The sad fact is
that in his mind he's not kidding. Who could argue with such a learned
man, after all, according to him, he did invent the Internet!
|Environmentalism is the new religion of choice for urban atheists.
Did I say it's a religion? Well, just look at the beliefs. If you look carefully, you see that environmentalism is in fact a perfect 21st century remaking of traditional Judeo-Christian beliefs.
Just like Christianity
there's an initial Eden, a paradise, a state of grace and unity with nature,
there's a fall from grace into a state of pollution as a result of eating
from the tree of knowledge, and as a result of our actions there is a Judgment
Day coming for us all.
We are all energy
sinners, doomed to die, unless we seek salvation,
which is now called sustainability, or "going green".
Sustainability is salvation in the church of the environment. Just as organic food is its communion, that pesticide free wafer that the right people with the right beliefs, imbibe.
Eden, the fall of man, the loss of grace, the coming doomsday -- these are deeply held mythic structures.
I certainly don't
want to talk anybody out of them, just as I don't want to talk anybody
out of a belief that Jesus Christ is
the son of God who rose from the dead.
But the reason
I don't want to talk anybody out of these beliefs is that I know that I
talk anybody out of them. That's because these are NOT facts that can be argued.
These are issues
of FAITH. And you can't argue faith, by definition.
And so it is,
sadly, with environmentalism. Increasingly it seems facts aren't necessary,
because the tenets of environmentalism are all about BELIEF.
Environmentalists it's about whether you are going to be a sinner, or be
Whether you are going to be one of the people on the side of salvation, or on the side of doom.
Whether you are going to be one of the enlightened ones who care, or one of those who want to destroy the Earth out of selfishness.
Am I exaggerating to make a point? I'm afraid not.
We know a lot more about the world than we did forty or fifty years ago. And what we know now is not so supportive of certain core environmental myths, yet these myths do not die.
Let's examine some of those beliefs. There is no Eden. There never was. When was that the Eden of the wonderful mythic past?
Was it the time
when infant mortality was 80%, when four children in five died of disease
before the age of five? When one woman in six died in childbirth?
When the average
life span was 40, as it was in America a century ago?
When plagues swept across the planet, killing millions at a time. Was it when millions starved to death? Is that when it was Eden? It is to the environmentalists because they say at least we didn't have the internal combustion engine, and incandescent light bulbs back then.
is a religion that says their God is a tree or their God is some element
of nature, and they don't need facts. They certainly don't want us "non
believers" to question their facts which are actually only beliefs and
Then they try to make everybody feel guilty and they try to convince everybody that we, by simply living our lives, are destroying this planet.
And it all harbors on this belief that this used to be pristine on the earth. Those Redwood Forest or those jungles, the rain forests, all, used to be pristine.
It was just fine
and dandy until we got here, and then WE started ruining things, and it's all centered around global warming and how we, energy sinners, environmental sinners, are destroying the planet.
is TOTALLY a
religious belief, and many of the people who adopt all this in fact claim
to be secularists, who claim to have nothing to do with religion because
they think religion is for kooks, that they are "men and women of science,"
that they are men and women a cut above all of us.
We are mere plebes
incapable of understanding the deep, dark secrets that their brilliance
alone is able to discern, and as such, we are but mere foot soldiers. Our
minds are porous, but they can be shaped, and they continue to try to shape
us each and every day with greater and greater fear and scare tactics,
all the while telling us it's our fault.
tell us if we don't believe in Global Warming we are
They say "I'm not going to be a religious nut right winger! I'm smarter than that!"
Yet they are not
secularists at all. They in fact are DEEPLY religious. They just have a different religion. In fact if anything they are simply Pagans worshiping
It is crucial to understand that all of this is made easy for these environmental religionists because they know that everybody's historical perspective begins with the day they were born.
they were in the last days 80 years ago. "Oh,
it's never been worse" they said!
Look at all these
diseases and pestilence. "We can't stop it!"
We think we're in the worst times we've ever had. We think we're in the last days.
Every generation does.
So you've got
people who have come along and tried to capitalize on this. They can't
offer you facts. They don't have any REAL
facts. All they can offer is EMOTION.
hector us about the impending end of the world. Perhaps it is not the end
of the world that they fear, it's just the end of THEM.
Analysis of global temperatures is a subtle issue about which reasonable men reach different conclusions.
The truth is that
there is NO 100%
conclusive DEFINITIVE EVIDENCE
of global warming, or of man's absolute responsibility of it. That is simply
a theory these people want us to accept as fact, and they refuse to even debate it. But the facts are NOT
what is at issue here for these people.
zealotry that motivates the greenie weenie global-warmers has a different
source than the facts and that is that human beings cannot bear their own
transient existence without some hope of immortality.
This is the key, because this is the point here. Immortality. Everybody thinks about it.
Everybody thinks about the afterlife. Everybody thinks there's got to be more than this, and everybody tries to do whatever they think necessary to discover what it is, and how to get there.
And the religion of environmentalism is what people hold dear today and the practice of it is the tool for that.
has become a religion for people. To many people, a tree or a plant or
an animal is their religion, and it is there that they find their immortality
and it is there that they find destruction which could cause their own
With the decline
of Christianity the get high culture of the West: sex, drugs, and violence predominate. These devices eventually leave the user all the more anxious.
By living on the
underside of popular culture, the young people of the West make themselves
feel worthless and insignificant.
In the cartoon
an insect (with
voice) complains to an ant psychiatrist: "I
feel so insignificant", to which the ant psychiatrist
replies: "That's a breakthrough. You ARE insignificant!"
That's a creepy thought; if human beings truly felt themselves to be insignificant, the suicide rate would be much higher. In fact, cultures who truly come to feel insignificant, eg, Stone Age peoples who come into unwanted contact with the modern world, sometimes register suicide rates of 25 percent to 50 percent. We do not typically observe very high rates of suicide because the human mind resists its own destruction by wishing away its sense of insignificance. Paranoia is one such device.
In the United
States, many people believed that evil white
doctors invented AIDS to wipe out the poor population.
Adolph Hitler believed that syphilis was a Jewish plot to poison Aryan blood.
Westerners do not normally believe in such bizarre ideas, but they are
susceptible to subtler forms of the same thing. The sense of the transcendent
they derive from contemplating nature is of desperate importance.
'It is not that I will pass from the earth without leaving so much as a
grease spot to mark my stay". 'It is the earth herself who is in danger.
The rain forests will vanish! The whales will become extinct! The ice caps
Anxiety about the irreversible disappearance of some feature of the natural world substitutes for the death anxiety of the individual. The environmentalist now becomes the enemy of industrial civilization in general.
Of course I do
not oppose SENSIBLE
measures to protect clean air and water, to protect the rain forests, to
prevent over fishing and so forth, but I am weary of the fanaticism that
distinguishes the conservationist from the environmental fanatic who has
turned against civilization.
|Just look at the new scare tactic book,
Earth Without Humans" where the author imagines a world without
humans because "Global Warming" has destroyed the Earth.
The most of the media won't print the
facts that the temperature readings are wrong, or that the "hottest
years on record" as reported by NASA have
now been updated which makes all of their computer "models" that Al
Gore uses useless.

They won't print that the glaciers are
actually growing larger in Antarctica, or that the Sun is actually getting

No, they want to use fear tactics and
blame man because it makes a better story line, a better "template" that's more dramatic. It's much better to report "THE
SKY IS FALLING!"

It is worth observing
that the U.S. returns more farmland to the wilderness every year, because
rising agricultural productivity concentrates more output on a smaller
number of square miles.
Gore, the media, or the environmentalists
won't tell you that.
Environmentalism has become the new religion. Everybody needs to believe in their own immortality.

opposite of what they claim it is.
The same holds
true with Global Warming. There is just as much evidence against global warming as there is for it. But the liberal media generally doesn't print that because it does not fit into their template of blaming man, especially the "evil rich white man" living in the United States
who is to be blamed for destroying the earth for his own greed.
The Weather Channel
reporter Dr. Heidi Cullen recently said "the Earth has not been this hot in the last million years."

I say it's NOT
about the facts, it's about a belief. A belief that man is evil and is
destroying the earth.

has also said that other meteorologists who disagree with Global
Warming should be FIRED!
That's the way
we should act, let's just close down the debate since she and the Reverend
Gore have given us the final word.
staff writer David Roberts
called for the Nuremberg style trials for the bastards
who were members of what he termed the global warming denial industry.
wrote in the online publication on September 19, 2006, "When
we've finally gotten serious about global warming, when the impacts are
really hitting us and we're in a full worldwide scramble to minimize the
damage, we should have war crimes trials for
these bastards -- some sort of climate Nuremberg."
So now if we don't
believe in Global Warming
we should be considered on the par of the Nazis?!!!
should keep in mind that it was actually it was the Nazi's
who shut down open debate, JUST
like Al Gore
and his buddies want to do about this issue.
What about all the environmentalists who forced us to stop using CFC's to help restore the hole in the Ozone Layer. CFC's were removed from EVERY
spray can by governmental laws, and the freon had to be reformulated in
refrigerator, and EVERY
air conditioning unit at great expense to EVERYONE
who lives in modern society.
But now the entire science behind ozone depletion is being questioned after 20 years of this environmental scare. Markus Rex,
an atmospheric scientist at the Alfred Wegener
Institute of Polar and Marine Research in
Potsdam, Germany, says "If the measurements
are correct we can basically no longer say we understand how ozone holes
come into being. What effect the results have on projections of the speed
or extent of ozone depletion remains unclear."
So we made all
these drastic changes and the "science" behind this scare was unfounded.
It's just more
envirowackism gone amuck.
Hole Science Revisited
|Take a look at
the book "The Politically Incorrect Guide
to Global Warming (and Environmentalism)", by Christopher C. Horner.
For decades, environmentalism
has been the Left's best excuse for increasing government control over
our actions in ways both large and small. "It's for Mother
Earth!" "It's for the CHILDREN!"
It's for the whales, and the polar bears, and the cute little penguins!
But until now, the doomsday scenario environmental scares they've trumped up haven't been large enough to justify the lifestyle restrictions they want to impose.
But under the
moniker of "Global Warming"
or now the new buzz word, "Climate Change"
greenhouse gasbags can now argue that auto emissions in Ohio
threaten people in Paris,
and that only "global governance"
(Jacques Chirac's words) can tackle such problems.
Now, in The
Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming and Environmentalism, Christopher
C. Horner tears the cover off the Left's manipulation
of environmental issues for political purposes and lays out incontrovertible
evidence for the fact that catastrophic man-made
global warming is just

explains, if global warming really were as bad as the Leftist doomsayers
insist that it is, then NO policy imaginable could "solve" it.
to the logic of the greens' own numbers,
no matter how much we sacrifice there would still be more to do.
That makes Global
Warming the bottomless well of excuses for
the relentless growth of big government . . . just perfect for
High Taxing Liberals!
