Monday, April 22, is Earth Day. Begun in 1970, it led to the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency, along with the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. It is the global platform for the Big Lie that carbon dioxide (CO2) is causing the Earth to warm and the basis of the environmental movement’s ceaseless efforts to reduce the use of energy for any reason.
One of the biggest lies in the history of mankind was perpetrated on us on April 22, 1970, when the Environmental Protection Agency, along with the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts were started. And in these acts, have come regulations that not only make us 100% less important to this world than the “snail darter” or some other species of creature that was so minute that it couldn’t be part of anything big, along with costing us the tax payers billions in dollars for a problem that has since gotten over 100% better, but the pundits say is much much worse, to make it cost us billions more.
From the article listed above, here is more:
Carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere has been increasing, but the Earth has been cooling due to reduced solar radiation. CO2 has virtually no relationship to the climate except to show up well after a significant change has occurred.
On April 18, the Wall Street Journal reported that the International Energy Agency had announced that, despite spending “more than $2 trillion in investment into renewable-energy projects…the world had made almost no progress over the past 20 years in reducing the carbon content of its energy supplies.” It has never needed reduction. How many hospitals, schools, bridges, and other useful things that could have been built instead?
According to Wikipedia: “Carbon is the 15th most abundant element in the Earth’s crust, and the fourth most abundant element in the universe by mass after hydrogen, helium, and oxygen. It is present in all known life forms, and in the human body carbon is the second most abundant element by mass (about 18.5%) after oxygen.] This abundance, together with the unique diversity of organic compounds and their unusual polymer-forming ability at the temperatures commonly encountered on Earth, make this element the chemical basis of all known life.”
But the people involved in this scam on the public, who started it in the 1970’s with lies then, are still telling us those lies, and though they have never been right, they continue. I have a bunch of examples of the things that these environmental wackos have said over the years that have never panned out, yet have cost us billions.
Here are just a few of their insane statements that have never come true, but were passed off as the truth, and cost us billions if not more. Here are the 13 worst predictions made on that earth day in 1970 and beyond:
1. “Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.” — Harvard biologist George Wald
2. “We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation.” — Washington University biologist Barry Commoner
3. “Man must stop pollution and conserve his resources, not merely to enhance existence but to save the race from intolerable deterioration and possible extinction.” — New York Times editorial
4. “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. This one has made many predictions and has NEVER been right.
5. “Most of the people who are going to die in the greatest cataclysm in the history of man have already been born… [By 1975] some experts feel that food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions. Other experts, more optimistic, think the ultimate food-population collision will not occur until the decade of the 1980s.” — Paul Ehrlich
6. “It is already too late to avoid mass starvation,” — Denis Hayes, Chief organizer for Earth Day
7. “Demographers agree almost unanimously on the following grim timetable: by 1975 widespread famines will begin in India; these will spread by 1990 to include all of India, Pakistan, China and the Near East, Africa. By the year 2000, or conceivably sooner, South and Central America will exist under famine conditions…. By the year 2000, thirty years from now, the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America, and Australia, will be in famine.” — North Texas State University professor Peter Gunter
8. “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
9. “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
10. “Air pollution…is certainly going to take hundreds of thousands of lives in the next few years alone.” — Paul Ehrlich. See what I mean. Wrong again!!!
11. “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
12. “[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
13. “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
Now I don’t know about you, but 1970 was 43 years ago. If these moronic predictions were right, the world would be history by now, and we wouldn’t have to worry anymore about the president and his minions trying to take our guns, our freedoms and our liberties. But, they were wrong, and they continue to be wrong. So why do we allow ourselves to be sucked in to paying them trillions to forward the agenda that they say will destroy us, but never has and will not in the future?
We have done more, to clean up our environment since 1970 than any of these weirdo wackos care to admit. The air is much cleaner now than it was in 1970. Don’t believe me? Research and check out photos of L.A. in the 70’s as compared to now. Now you can see blue sky. Back then it was a sickly brown.
When are we going to admit the government is wrong, and always has been? When are we going to admit the Al Gores of the world are wrong and always has been. Don’t you think that God thought of these things we would do when he created the world? Of course He did. Trees renew the air. Plants renew the air. He put in an eco system that renews itself. And on top of that folks, this whole scare about Global Warming, goes even farther in the following statements. Surely we are not stupid enough to believe this:
Andrew Cuomo, the governor of New York said that global warming is partially to blame for the Boston Marathon bombing, on Friday in Albany on the radio.
CUOMO: One gets the sense that this is more reflective of the, quote, unquote, new normal, if you will. So much of society is changing so rapidly, we talk about a new normal when it comes to climate change and adjusting to a change in the weather patterns. New normal when it comes to public security in a post-9/11 world where these random acts of violence, which at one time were implausible, now seem all too frequent.
And there is more. From Rush Limbaugh came this about Thomas Friedman.
Now, I haven’t read it, but I have been told that Thomas Friedman, Thomas “Loopy” Friedman, New York Times column yesterday, actually said that the proper response to the Boston Marathon bombing is a carbon tax. People were making jokes about that, proper response, carbon tax. Tom Friedman, I’m told, actually wrote that.
Now, I went to look and found it. It’s at Frontpage Mag. Thomas Friedman, the idiot who believes the world is flat, now thinks that buying Carbon Credits, you know, the things that Al Gore buys so he can pollute with impunity, will stop Islamists. What more has to be said to get people to think and know that this whole global warming thing is a bunch of bull? it amazes me that more people haven’t figured it out by now.
God Bless America
God Bless our Troops
God Bless us all.
