Subject: [Capr-discussion] ENVIRONMENTAL FARCE
To Rural Landowners,
government types, urban planners, environmentalists, interested parties and the
For the last 30 years or
so (maybe even longer), environmentalists and
environmentalism (driven by the United Nation's
one-world-order, socialist mentality) have perpetrated a
cult-like strangle hold on ordinary American citizens. The cost for all of it, not only on our public
treasury but in lost freedoms, is staggering. The damage it has done
to our freedom and our constitutions is of epic proportions and may never be
reversed. The abject bias it has inflicted on our governmental systems may
truly be our undoing as a once-free country. It needs to be exposed for
the "farce" that it is and a complete reversal of its goals and objectives
before it is too late. To that end I offer my latest essay entitled:
"RADICAL ENVIRONMENTALISM IS AN UNMITIGATED
FARCE." It is attached as a WORD document and also
appears below. It has been picked up by two national on-line
magazines. Its logic is unimpeachable. The very survival
of our country as a free nation, is at stake here. To do nothing
about this issue is to invite environmental enslavement,
"RADICAL ENVIRONMENTALISM IS

To all who care about whether
environmentalism is a worthwhile endeavor, or whether it has been a fraud
perpetrated on naive individuals and cultures who just don't have the facts to
render a decision one way or another.
In order to see anything clearly, you must
have a sufficiently broad perspective, accompanied by hard data,
repeatable long-term observations and verifiable facts. If
standing and you look at the ground, your perspective and your field of
view are quite limited. If however, you are standing on the top of a
mountain, your perspective broadens exponentially. And thus it is with the
subject of environmentalism. Without a broader view it is almost
impossible to know who or what to believe. So a short history of the Earth
is in order.
The Earth has endured never-ending
sunspots, reversing poles, shifting magnetic fields, drifting continents and ice
ages in its 4.5 Billion year history.
It has experienced the wondrous 165-million year dinosaur
experiment. About 600 Million years ago the Cambrian explosion
occurred where life almost magically erupted, emerged and evolved at a pace
never before seen. No one
Over its lifetime, the Earth spun, tilted,
heaved, shifted, rose and shrunk, drastically changed, expelled gases and molten
lava, grew hot and then cold. Whole
continents drifted first towards each other (Pangea) and then away, until
finally arriving at the seven existing continents of today. Polar ice caps and glaciers melted and
sea levels rose and then lowered.
About 10,000 years ago, at least one third of the Earth's surface
was covered in a layer of ice over one mile thick. During that ice age that lasted longer
than civilized man has lived on Earth, there were no animals, plants, insects or
habitat that could survive in this harsh environment, except those very small
creatures that adapted to a life on or in the ice. But life on Earth still survived in
other places less hostile. The
ultimate thaw and the rushing torrent carved deep gouges and massive channels in
the Earth's surface. It created
riverbeds and dry falls and lakes and inland seas and other features in the
Earth's crust, not there before.
Now that was global warming on a grand scale.
And yet, for 99.93333% of the Earth's
estimated 4.5 billion years, not one homo erectus walked upon its
undulating surfaces, climbed a mountain, traversed a plain, or sailed on or swam
in the vast expanse of its oceans, lakes, rivers or streams. In that time 99.9% of every
species that ever lived on Earth, became extinct. Nature rolled the dice with zillions of
evolutionary experiments. It is
still rolling those dice, even today.
We humans are but an integral part of that continuing evolutionary
experiment. And yes, we probably are having some affect on the
environment, but the question is, is that affect greater or lesser than nature
itself? After reading this, the answer will be self-evident.
Whole forests grew and then died out. Mountains rose out of the bowels of the
Earth, pushed up by continents in collision and then flattened back into the
crust. Rivers changed
direction. Monster lakes were
formed. Giant meteors struck the
Earth at galactic speeds, carving out massive holes in the crust and sending
continent-size clouds of sunlight-dimming dust into the atmosphere. The atmosphere became opaque and cut off
the life-giving Sunlight, rendering lifeless, enormous parts of the planet. Millions of species of plants and
animals evolved, survived, reproduced and then died out, to be replaced by
entirely different species of plants and animals.
These events changed the life processes on
Earth forever. New processes
emerged and new life rose up out of the moist rich soil, where those conditions
existed. However, major changes
seldom occurred in cataclysmic events.
They almost always took place agonizingly slowly, over eons of time,
through the tedious, grinding, random, chaotic, disorganized process of natural
evolution. The variables were almost infinite and still are.
And today, those same agonizingly slow
processes are at work. We are an
integral part of those processes but we will have little or no affect on any
final outcome. We will but only tickle the grander elements
such as the Sun, the moon and the Earth itself, none of which is predictable,
much less measurable to the degree necessary for accurate predictions. A few spewing volcanoes or an episode of
Sunspots can totally invalidate any computer models. The variables are just too great to
model, but the environmentalists use these in-accurate models to create crises
so that they can entrench themselves in an ever-growing culture of "the
sky is falling" and get you to donate money to them, or have it
confiscated from you by conning the government into giving it to them. Just look at weather predictions by
scientists and weathermen. Any
prediction is good for about 2 hours and that is why the environmentalist's
models were predicting an ice age 20 years ago and now they are predicting
global warming. It's ludicrous and
an insult to true science.
My other issues with
environmentalists have to do with their getting in the way of a free society to
provide the resources necessary to keep that society going economically. Environmentalists have stopped oil
refineries and nuclear power plants from being built for over 25 years. That's why a gallon of gas is now well
over $2.00 and will not likely come down and that's why our power capacity is at
or near maximum. Environmentalists,
in concert with radical international environmentalists, are trying to lock up
private lands in the U. S. for biospheres and wildlife corridors without
compensating the owners of the private lands they want to take. Environmentalists have stopped the
drilling for oil in areas of known oil reserves, thus making us more dependent
on foreign sources and driving up the cost of oil and oil-associated products,
accordingly. The unnecessary cost
for overt and radical environmental protection has been in the Trillions of
dollars since it became in vogue and it has severely weakened our economic
engine, reduced our power capacity and eroded our constitutional form of
government almost beyond repair.
Environmentalists have brain
washed an entire civilization into believing that environmental protection has a
higher priority than constitutional safeguards and has been perpetrated on free
citizens by a rogue and oppressive government at their urgings. They took over Oregon, Washington and
California and they have taken +over many local and State governments, as well
as the U. S. Congress, all the while beating the drums of the "environment" into
the heads of naive citizens who live in cities and have no stake in
unconstitutional takings. They have
disenfranchised rural landowners and made them victims of their crimes. They decimated an entire culture of
loggers, mill operators and wood product employees in the Pacific Northwest and
forced them into bankruptcy and divorce and scattered them to the four winds
because of their distorted desire to "save" one stupid owl that was going
extinct for natural causes that had nothing to do with logging or loss of
habitat. I repeat, 99.9% of all
species that ever lived on Earth are now extinct and the Endangered Species Act
is bad legislation for that very reason alone and should be repealed. Environmentalists use junk science to
win their battles and extort monies from naive citizens to fund their radical
agendas in court.
They have the mistaken, naive
and dangerous mindset that privately held, rural land is their land to do with
as they will. It isn't. It belongs to the millions of
individuals that own it in fee-simple title and paid for or inherited it and the
inviolate right to own that land by those individuals is protected by the
5th and 14th Amendments to the U. S. Constitution. They don't own it and neither does any
State or the Federal Government.
Obviously, if we believe the
environmentalists about habitat preservation, or global warming, or CO2 in the
oceans, or auto emissions, or warming or cooling currents, or depletion of the
ozone layer, or DDT use, or deforestation, or melting glaciers, or biospheres,
or wildlands, or yellow rain, or endangered and invasive species, or any other
of "the-sky-is-falling" disasters "they" say will befall us, if we
don't capitulate and live "green", civilization as we know it will surely
die. This is nothing but drivel and
lies to get your money.
No matter what humans do or try
to do, they will not have anywhere near the affect that the natural forces
governing the Earth, the Sun, the other Planets, the galaxies and the Universe
as a whole, will have.
Because you see, the Universe,
our Solar System and even our Earth are violent, dangerous places to humans and
other life forms and always have been.
Just ask the dinosaurs. So
far, we have just been lucky. A
close-by (in galactic terms) supernova in the spiral arm of
the Milky Way, in which our solar system resides, could flood the Sun and
planets with massive amounts of deadly radiation and render them lifeless and
baron. (There is a theory being discussed right now, where massive
extinctions on Earth correspond with super novae explosions throughout time, in
our part of the galaxy.)
If the Sun changed its energy
output by a significant fraction, all life on Earth could cease. An errant asteroid or gigantic rock
could be driven into the path of the Earth's orbit and the resulting collision
could dramatically change the pattern of life, or terminate it altogether. The Earth itself is chock-full of
cataclysmic surprises, many of which have the power to erase the human species
from its surface forever.
decisions and cry "wolf" on very little data and way too short time periods to
come up with meaningful predictions.
But in the final analysis, environmentalism has become very
big business. It
employs millions of so-called experts and scientists, most who work for the
government, coming up with models, studies and equations based on variables so
wide as to make most of their predictions meaningless.
The only way to stop this
madness is to stop donating to environmental groups. Dry up their funds and you render them
impotent. Spread the word that
environmentalists have one goal in mind.
That goal is to save mother Earth from their perceived ravages of the
human infestation. Force humans to
live in high-dense cities like rats.
Get them out of their cars.
Make them walk or take a bicycle to work. Have them live on top of each other in
25-story buildings and 800 square foot apartments in densities approaching
55,000 people per square mile. Oh,
and don't let cities encroach into the rural lands. To gain ground, don't go out go up. Environmentalism has become a cult. It has become a cult of mindless
followers with a distorted vision on how humans and the Earth should relate to
each other. Earth gets the highest
priorities. I for one, completely
reject this premise.
The human population in the
United States occupies only 5.6% of the landmass since it was first colonized by
Europeans, some 400 years ago.
So plants, trees, birds, insects and animals have 94.6% of the landmass
to occupy, not to mention they also occupy our 5.6%. If we grew to occupying say
10% of the land mass in the next 200 years, wouldn't that seem a fair and
equitable distribution of the available land for humans and the other Earth's
occupants? Am I saying to trash the
land we live on, of course not. But
stealing private land for the radical environmentalist's agenda by government
regulation without due process and without compensation as required by the 5th
and 14th Amendments, is dead wrong.
Radical environmentalism is
less than a hundred years old and born in the United Nations. The Earth is at least 4.5 Billion years
old. Civilized societies have only
been around for about 5,000 years.
5,000 years represents .000111% of Earth's existence. Put it in perspective. Humans are in fact part of the
evolutionary and natural process of Earth and those processes, not
environmentalists or governments, will determine the final outcome. This is why radical
environmentalism is an unmitigated farce and this is why it should be inhibited
or eradicated wherever it arises.
To do otherwise is to invite environmental enslavement, where you have no
