Around the globe, environmental protesters tried “a synchronized burst of more than 4,300 demonstrations, from the Himalayas to the Great Barrier Reef,” according to The New York Times.
The sweeping Oct. 24 protest was to bully developed nations like the
The 350.org protesters, who want to drop CO2 in the atmosphere to that level, were especially critical of the U.S. “You have destroyed nature with your industrial waste and gases more than any other nation in history. Despite this, you refuse to sign the Kyoto agreement so that you can secure the profit of your greedy companies and industries.”
At least al Qaeda is clear about what it wants – an end to Western civilization and establishment of global Sharia law –the Islamic version of cave men times with better architecture.
The eco-nuts have a patchwork of things they hate and want banned or destroyed. The week of the 350 pro
The new labeling guidelines were a predictable attempt to manipulate what people eat. “[T]hey are advised to substitute beans or chicken for red meat,” the Oct. 22 article proclaimed. The left hasn’t bestowed human rights on beans … yet.
Two days later, London’s Daily Express complained that Fido was a global threat as well. “A medium-sized dog has the same carbon impact as a Toyota Land Cruiser driven 6,000 miles a year, a new book claims,” wrote the paper. It went on to blast pets – from cats to hamsters – because they use energy. Now I guess lefties can blame previous warming cycles on buffalo (or their SUVs).
We should be used to this theme. The left is on a global campaign to wipe out the trappings of civilization and the media pretend it’s for our good. In a headlong rush to stop something many scientists dispute, the left wants to ban human invention, accomplishment and enjoyment. The media, which reluctantly admit al Qaeda is somehow bad, can’t muster the same honesty about the eco-movement.
Enviro wackos in the nuclear free zone of Takoma Park, Md., are trying to ban leaf blowers. Styrofoam and plastic bags are doomed to a similar end under the all-seeing, lidless eye of the morals police. California is on the verge of banning big screen TVs because they also use too much energy. (Take that sports bars.) The Golden state is also banning a ship used in the movie “Pirates of the Caribbean” because it has a diesel engine.
The European Union has already begun its ban on traditional light bulbs and the U.S. Congress has passed that little bit of environmental insanity as well. Forget actual light
Of course it doesn’t stop there. It’s one thing to limit our packaging, our technology and underwear. Goveg.com, a pro-vegetarian Web site, enlisted rock stars Paul McCartney and Chrissie Hynde to go after the meat industry – “one of the leading sources of the greenhouse gases that lead to global warming.”
Why ban food when you can get rid of people? A researcher from the World Health Organization came out and complained about the “lack of access to family planning.” The left wants to limit human population via birth control.
That’s reminiscent of Paul Watson
That is the natural culmination the left is working toward. Just like communist China
To hear Al Gore tell it, the battle against global warming is reminiscent of World War II. In July, he told an English audience, “Winston Churchill aroused this nation in heroic fashion to save civilization in World War II.”
Yes, but Britain was on the side of civilization. The eco-nuts are not.
