Before I Forget, Happy Earth Day!
With five hours remaining in this hallowed day of worship I would be remiss not to spread the word.
Was it that long ago someone decided that earth worship deserves a special day? What happened to earth since then? All depends on who you ask.
We would like to believe this noble effort has helped clean the air we exhale and the water we pee in. Haven't we as a society banned many chemicals and pesticides to make life far better? Don't vehicles get far better mileage and consume much less fuel? Doesn't recycling by just about everyone relieve strains on landfills? Haven't the earth worshiping celebrities given up their gas-guzzling limos, Range Rovers and private jets to save this precious planet? Well let's not go that far.
Sad to say, if we believe the gullible
Gaia worshiping, camera hogging pop culture trend setting Hollywood celebrities, professional media parasites, and power hungry democrat politicians the earth is in far more peril than it was in 1970. How could that be? As with all far left progressive causes, if we solve the problems and there are no more problems to solve there would be no reason for far left progressive parasites to exist. Planet saving happens to be a highly sustainable way to shift government spending and grab more power.
global warming climate change is a noble effort hoax and the most gullible concerned believers happen to be the more educated book smart among us. If man is able to control the climate one way or another before we are able to cure the common cold something smells. The whole thing is a bamboozle, a fraud. It's all concocted to line someone's pocket invest in the future.
I read not long ago that when those who warn of man made
global warming climate change begin to live as if they believe it then it may be real.
Here are some quotes from the very first earth day. Enjoy!
"Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind." — Harvard biologist George Wald
"Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years." — Stanford University biologist Paul Ehrlich
"It is already too late to avoid mass starvation," — Denis Hayes, Chief organizer for Earth Day
"In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution… by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half." — Life magazine
"At the present rate of nitrogen buildup, it's only a matter of time before light will be filtered out of the atmosphere and none of our land will be usable." — Ecologist Kenneth Watt
"By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate… that there won't be any more crude oil. You'll drive up to the pump and say, ‘Fill 'er up, buddy,' and he'll say, ‘I am very sorry, there isn't any.'" — Ecologist Kenneth Watt
"[One] theory assumes that the earth's cloud cover will continue to thicken as more dust, fumes, and water vapor are belched into the atmosphere by industrial smokestacks and jet planes. Screened from the sun's heat, the planet will cool, the water vapor will fall and freeze, and a new Ice Age will be born." — Newsweek magazine
"The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age." — Kenneth Watt
skeptic climate change denier all of this nonsense would be funny if so many idiots morons college educated scholars scientists citizens weren't fooled by it.
