The truth about the destructive religion of Environmentalism

The bottom line: The most consistent, dedicated environmentalists want you, and everyone else, to die. It's as simple as that.

Any other supposed goals are a means to that ultimate end; the destruction of industrial civilization around the world means the death of the vast majority of current humanity. They know this - you should too. Every single smaller goal of environmentalism is consistent with that ultimate goal; do not be deluded into thinking that environmentalism is about improving your life or any human life.

Environmentalism is not about a desire to have cleaner water and air. It is now a full-fledged religion, and its main tenet is "raw nature" as god-like, and Mankind as a plague infecting it. If you support environmentalism, the fact is that you're supporting an ideology that promotes the destruction of Mankind - and concretely, that includes yourself and everyone you care about.

Ideas matter. Support of ideas, matters. This site is intended to inform you about the nature of the religion of environmentalism. Supporting that religion, is supporting, ultimately, a terrorism that dwarfs the actions of 9/11/01.  Environmentalism, indeed, promotes fear and terror about all of the actions of humanity - and the most extreme (which means, the most consistent) environmentalists have no problem with committing crimes ranging from vandalism, to personal attacks, to murder (the Unabomber was an explicit environmentalist.) But the main damage that environmentalists have inflicted, and continue to inflict on a growing scale, is the ongoing attack on modern industrial civilization. It is modern civilization - modern technology - that permits you and your loved ones, and the vast majority of the rest of humanity, to live. An attack on industrial civilization, on technology, is a mass attack on humanity. The environmentalists are well aware of this fact. You should be, as well.

Rolling blackouts and insanely high land costs in many parts of the United States caused by environmentalist regulations, are only the start. To the environmentalist religion, as long as a single human being lives, the Earth has a problem. This is what you support every time you repeat an environmentalist slogan - every time you donate your time or money to a Sierra Club, or an Earth First, or similar organizations.

Sea Level Rise, After the Ice Melted and Today

Sea level has risen 120 meters since the end of the last ice age. The earth has been warming naturally for 25,000 years - unless you want to absurdly believe that humans burning coal and oil caused this warming. This is also a cyclical event. The plateau over the past 5,000 years is obvious. Furthermore, anyone worried over a warmer earth should take a look at earth in an ice age, where large parts of the earth's surface were covered in massive ice sheets.

Svensmark's Cosmic Jackpot: "Evidence of nearby supernovae affecting life on Earth"

"Here are the main results:

  • The long-term diversity of life in the sea depends on the sea-level set by plate tectonics and the local supernova rate set by the astrophysics, and on virtually nothing else.
  • The long-term primary productivity of life in the sea – the net growth of photosynthetic microbes – depends on the supernova rate, and on virtually nothing else.
  • Exceptionally close supernovae account for short-lived falls in sea-level during the past 500 million years, long-known to geophysicists but never convincingly explained..
  • As the geological and astronomical records converge, the match between climate and supernova rates gets better and better, with high rates bringing icy times.

Presented with due caution as well as with consideration for the feelings of experts in several fields of research, a story unfolds in which everything meshes like well-made clockwork. Anyone who wishes to pooh-pooh any piece of it by saying “correlation is not necessarily causality” should offer some other mega-theory that says why several mutually supportive coincidences arise between events in our galactic neighbourhood and living conditions on the Earth."

 

The IPCC consensus on climate change was phony, says IPCC insider

The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change misled the press and public into believing that thousands of scientists backed its claims on manmade global warming, according to Mike Hulme, a prominent climate scientist and IPCC insider.  The actual number of scientists who backed that claim was “only a few dozen experts,” he states in a paper for Progress in Physical Geography, co-authored with student Martin Mahony.

U.S. Senate Report Debunks "Consensus"

Over 400 Prominent Scientists Disputed Man-Made Global Warming Claims in 2007


The December 2007 issue of International Journal of Climatology has a comparing available climate data with the models used by the IPCC for dire predictions of global warming:

We examine tropospheric temperature trends of 67 runs from 22 'Climate of the 20th Century' model simulations and try to reconcile them with the best available updated observations (in the tropics during the satellite era). Model results and observed temperature trends are in disagreement in most of the tropical troposphere, being separated by more than twice the uncertainty of the model mean. In layers near 5 km, the modelled trend is 100 to 300% higher than observed, and, above 8 km, modelled and observed trends have opposite signs. These conclusions contrast strongly with those of recent publications based on essentially the same data.

As put by Dr. Fred S. Singer, a co-author of the study:

“The current warming trend is simply part of a natural cycle of climate warming and cooling that has been seen in ice cores, deep-sea sediments, stalagmites, etc., and published in hundreds of papers in peer-reviewed journals.

"The mechanism for producing such cyclical climate changes is still under discussion; but they are most likely caused by variations in the solar wind and associated magnetic fields that affect the flux of cosmic rays incident on the earth’s atmosphere.

"In turn, such cosmic rays are believed to influence cloudiness and thereby control the amount of sunlight reaching the earth’s surface­ and thus the climate.

"Our research demonstrates that the ongoing rise of atmospheric CO2 has only a minor influence on climate change. We must conclude, therefore, that attempts to control CO2 emissions are ineffective and pointless — but very costly."


Forrest M. Mims III reports on a talk given at the 109th meeting of the Texas Academy of Science, 3-5 March 2006, by a University of Texas evolutionary biologist, Dr. Eric R. Pianka. "One of Pianka's earliest points was a condemnation of anthropocentrism, or the idea that humankind occupies a privileged position in the Universe. He told a story about how a neighbor asked him what good the lizards are that he studies. He answered, 'What good are you?' Pianka hammered his point home by exclaiming, 'We're no better than bacteria!' ... Professor Pianka said the Earth as we know it will not survive without drastic measures. Then, and without presenting any data to justify this number, he asserted that the only feasible solution to saving the Earth is to reduce the population to 10 percent of the present number. ... Pianka then displayed a slide showing rows of human skulls, one of which had red lights flashing from its eye sockets. AIDS is not an efficient killer, he explained, because it is too slow. His favorite candidate for eliminating 90 percent of the world's population is airborne Ebola (Ebola Reston), because it is both highly lethal and it kills in days, instead of years. After praising the Ebola virus for its efficiency at killing, Pianka paused, leaned over the lectern, looked at us and carefully said, 'We've got airborne 90 percent mortality in humans. Killing humans. Think about that.' With his slide of human skulls towering on the screen behind him, Professor Pianka was deadly serious."

Science magazine published a blatantly false report (N. Oreskes (2004),"The scientific consensus on climate change", Science, Vol 306, Issue 5702, 1686 , 3 December 2004) purporting to show, via literature search engine, a unanimous support for man-made global climate change. Science refused to publish this letter , showing the complete falsity of the claim (and using the same search method.)

Quotes from environmentalists

 

Human beings, as a species, have no more value than slugs.

—John Davis, editor of Earth First! Journal

Phasing out the human race will solve every problem on earth, social and environmental.

—Dave Forman, Founder of Earth First!

I know scientists who remind me that people are part of nature, but it isn't true. Somewhere along the line ... we quit the contract and became a cancer. We have become a plague upon ourselves and upon the Earth.... Until such time as Homo sapiens should decide to rejoin nature, some of us can only hope for the right virus to come along.  (source: "Mother Nature as a hothouse flower," Los Angeles Times Book Review, October 22, 1989, p. 10.)

—David Graber, biologist, National Park Service

The Great Global Warming Swindle

An excellent film covering the unscientific, political/religious propaganda nature of the "Global Warming" movement. Interviews with actual scientists (not politicians and "social scientists") detailing that CO2 emission follows as an effect, not causes, warming and cooling; that water vapor is the biggest "greenhouse gas" by far; the effects of cosmic radiation on cloud formation and the overarching importance of the sun on the temperature of the earth, directly and indirectly.

The Great Ice Age (USGS publication)

"The Great Ice Age, a recent chapter in the Earth's history, was a period of recurring widespread glaciations. During the Pleistocene Epoch of the geologic time scale, which began about a million or more years ago, mountain glaciers formed on all continents, the icecaps of Antarctica and Greenland were more extensive and thicker than today, and vast glaciers, in places as much as several thousand feet thick, spread across northern North America and Eurasia. So extensive were these glaciers that almost a third of the present land surface of the Earth was intermittently covered by ice. Even today remnants of the great glaciers cover almost a tenth of the land, indicating that conditions somewhat similar to those which produced the Great Ice Age are still operating in polar and subpolar climates."

Lost in the politicized panic over "global warming" is the question: Why would this be a bad thing? Vast areas were completely uninhabitable by humans (and animals) because of massive glaciation in very recent geological history.

While sea levels do rise as more ice melts, the environmentalists never bring up the logical corollary: previously ice-covered land becomes available for use. In the context of an ice age, this means vast areas that are currently inhabited by billions of people, that were formerly covered by thousands of feet of ice.

The fact is that the Earth has undergone extreme climactic changes long before humans walked the earth, ranging from the Snowball Earth , where the entire world was covered from pole to pole down to the equator with ice, to much warmer periods accompanied by an explosion of life. A warm earth promotes life - a frozen earth is death.

Regarding CO2 levels, life, and earth's temperature: "The hot and humid climate of the Middle Carboniferous Period was accompanied by an explosion of terrestrial plant life" ... "Earth's climate and atmosphere have varied greatly over geologic time. Our planet has mostly been much hotter and more humid than we know it to be today, and with far more carbon dioxide (the greenhouse gas) in the atmosphere than exists today. The notable exception is 300,000,000 years ago during the late Carboniferous Period, which resembles our own climate and atmosphere like no other." ... "There has historically been much more CO2 in our atmosphere than exists today. For example, during the Jurassic Period (200 mya), average CO2 concentrations were about 1800 ppm or about 4.8 times higher than today. The highest concentrations of CO2 during all of the Paleozoic Era occurred during the Cambrian Period, nearly 7000 ppm -- about 19 times higher than today." ... The Carboniferous Period and the Ordovician Period were the only geological periods during the Paleozoic Era when global temperatures were as low as they are today. To the consternation of global warming proponents, the Late Ordovician Period was also an Ice Age while at the same time CO2 concentrations then were nearly 12 times higher than today-- 4400 ppm. According to greenhouse theory, Earth should have been exceedingly hot. Instead, global temperatures were no warmer than today. Clearly, other factors besides atmospheric carbon influence earth temperatures and global warming.
