The “green” movement is slowly crushing us. Little by little, under the guise of environmentalism and “saving our planet”, we are being conditioned to accept governmental power and are our losing our nation.
It is difficult for many to argue against the concept of being “green” and trying to prevent pollution, when the concept seems so noble on the surface. There have been many great conservationists, such as Theodore Roosevelt, who saw the benefits of preserving our natural habitats and not razing every inch of our country to the ground for business purposes. Honestly, very few can argument against the logic of being good stewards of the earth that God has given us, but we have gone too far. Some are truly worshiping the creation over the Creator and have continued the age-old practice of pantheism. Yet, the majority are exploiting the moral obligation we have to be good stewards and using it to advance the liberal agenda.
Since the 1970’s, “experts” have been warning of an impending global apocalypse. Drumming up fears around “global warming”, these scientists and fear-mongers have spoken of the evils of CO2 emissions, pollution, and corporate America. Of these warnings, the most memorable came from Al Gore’s 2006 prediction that the world had less than ten years before destruction would occur. (There are currently 3 years, 276 days, and 2.5 hours left) No matter how subtle or outrageous, all these warnings and outcries have the same common goals: advancing the liberal agenda and covertly transforming the U.S.
Under the Obama Administration, the blind push for “green” energy has led to some incredibly irresponsible investment decisions. The most notable disaster is the Department of Energy’s loan to Solyndra, a solar-panel maker in California. The $535 million loan to Solyndra returned little except campaign donations; as the “green” energy company collapsed in 2011 and became one of the first of many energy companies to fold. While Solyndra has become the most memorable company to receive DOE loans, it was not the only one to collapse in the artificially-created “green” energy market. Multiple other companies have filed for bankruptcy after receiving hundreds of millions in federal loans, including Olsen Mills Co, Ener1, and A123 Systems.
These loans have not only been wasteful and irresponsible, but they have also begun another front in the war to create government dependence and to change the U.S. economy. As these companies operate in an artificially-controlled bubble, more and more upstart companies are realize the path to initial success is paved by federal loans and not entrepreneurial spirit. This deliberate governmental interference is attempting to become an accepted and preferred part of the U.S. economy, all masked under the moral argument of making our world more environmentally safer.
In another government endeavor, electric cars are quickly showing to be an absolute failure, as federally-subsidized Chevy Volt’s continue to catch fire and sit on sale lots throughout the nation. While virtually none were purchased throughout the U.S before March 2012, liberals are now touting a surge in Volt sales, claiming that the car is finally catching on. What they neglect to mention is that almost every new sale has come from the Obama-friendly GE Corp.’s purchase of the electric vehicles for its company fleet. As the Volt flops with the public, another DOE loan recipient, Fisker Automotive, is facing severe financial trouble as it is unable to sell its $90,000 electric sports car. These are just examples of the beginning of government attempts to create un-viable “green” energy powered vehicles.
While energy-creation and “responsibility” is the disguise, the “green” movement’s biggest goal is actually the control of society and fitting them into the extreme-left’s mold of what’s socially acceptable.
Over the last 40 years, the EPA has been the attack dog for this cause, using the “green” argument to slowly advance the liberal agenda. Emission regulations (SUV’s), lead restrictions (ammunition), and the banning of DDT (over-population) are all examples of the EPA advancing the liberal agenda through its rulings. On the upcoming gun-control front, the major push to raise the cost of ammunition due to “lead concerns” is promising to return under a second Obama term.
The largest attack currently underway on the U.S. economy is the EPA’s war on the coal industry as it introduces new regulations effectively designed to cripple the industry. The EPA’s new regulations are centered on reducing the CO2 emissions allowed for energy plants to a level which will essentially prevent the opening of any new coal-fire energy plants and burden existing ones. The new regulations will quickly give rise to consumer energy bills and add new hardships to an already struggling economy.
The more observant should realize that this regulation means that the government and EPA is subsidizing and promoting electric power and “greener” vehicles while shutting down the source of most people’s electricity: Coal. It also calls into question of the real motives of those in power currently and why they would want to remove the ultimate source of the “green” energy they promote? Pulling the rug out from under “green energy would almost certainly create an energy crisis in the U.S. that is currently unprecedented.
If the war on coal and oil seems unrealistic, consider the following comments by a high-level EPA official released today:
“It was kind of like how the Romans used to, you know, conquer villages in the Mediterranean. They’d go in to a little Turkish town somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they saw and they’d crucify them. Then, you know, that town was really easy to manage for the next few years.”
To put it bluntly, the EPA is saying it wants to “crucify” the coal and oil industries.
Although liberals are quick to condemn any references to violence when conservatives speak, they seem to be the ones who actually gravitate to methods of violence. If the previous EPA comments are even mentioned on by the media, there is little doubt that it will be dismissed as “out of context” and “hyperbole”. Rest assured these calls for violence to force “green” ideology are not isolated cases.
Not more than a week ago, climate change activist, Steve Zwick made the following appalling comments:
We know who the active denialists are – not the people who buy the lies, mind you, but the people who create the lies. Let’s start keeping track of them now, and when the famines come, let’s make them pay. Let’s let their houses burn. Let’s swap their safe land for submerged islands. Let’s force them to bear the cost of rising food price.
As if it is not enough to call for violence and the mobbing of “green” dissidents, Oregon University professor, Kari Norgaard, recently commented that anyone who doubts climate change must be “sick” and classified such skepticism as a “mental illness”.
This is the civility that liberals truly are aspiring for.
As these comments continue, it is becoming more and more obvious that liberalism has found a home in “green” ideology and environmentalism. Yet through their attempts to cause people to doubt their social morality, a backlash is beginning to develop.
Although not even glanced at by the media, multiple NASA scientists, former astronauts, and other officials have signed a letter stating their strong objections to the organizations commitment and belief in man-made global warming. Their realization of the true “green” agenda has led them out of the wilderness and into reality. Recently, the number of renowned former-climate scientists refuting their former religion is growing and shedding light on the lies they once believed.
While the 2012 campaign begins, we must continue to grow this resistance against this new home for liberalism and speak to the misdirection and true motivations of those who preach it.
As counter-intuitive as it may seem on the surface, the “green” movement must be prevented from transforming the world around us.
