The “Green” Movement

Environmental Protection Agency Seal

Liberalism in Disguise

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.

  1. Yeah. Back in the 70s, some scientists were running around warning of an impending ice age…Then, almost overnight, they said, “Oh, wait. We mean the earth is warming.”

      • The cycles of the sun control the temperatures on the earth combined with the shifts of the earth’s axis in respect to the sun.
        You may have heard of the Goldilocks theory.
        Venus is really hot, Mars is really cold.
        The earth is just right to support carbon based life as we know it.
        The audacity of these politicians to try to manipulate the ignorant into the concept that we can ‘change the weather’ should be an indication not unlike the snake oil salesmen depicted in the old western movies.
        Common sense is a virtue that cannot be replaced with any number of over/under educated fools and charlatans telling us that they know better, just because idiots elected them.
        Wake up America !!!

    • Wow, I think you will be a great OB. It seems like you have a real love for children, failimes, and people in general. Sad to say that those qualities are rare traits in todays world. I believe not just anyone should be in just any job because you could be in a job that you hate and end up making everyone who comes in contact with you at work miserable. You have the joy and care to be great at your job and effect those you will be working around not only by your knowledge , but by your love for what you do.

    • The writers over at NakedCapitalism.Com do a great job of deconstructing the Metaphysical Cult of Libertarianism; Satyajit Das, Ha-Joon Chang, Yves Smith, Steve Keen, Phlip Pilkington, Matt Stoller, etc. So do some other academics (economists, historians and financial analysts) like Dean Baker, Joseph Stiglitz, Simon Johnson, Kevin Phillips, etc.Face it, many Libertarian ideas appeal to the groups that have had it the best for decades (if not centuries) though sheer luck of birth — educated, white males.The fact that Libertarian ideas appeal to younger, educated, white males is a partially a function of the fact that race and gender dominance is less guaranteed now than ever. So, in a globally integrated world, with scarcity (of everything) more apparent everyday, no wonder economic cultism is appealing to groups that are finally feeling the heat of increased competition through leveling.Without U.S. government protection of jobs (labor), through immigration laws, many Americans would lose their jobs — IN AMERICA — not just overseas via outsourcing. In other words, if labor movement was as free and easy (unregulated) today as capital movement is (through integrated, worldwide financialization), Libertarians wouldn’t argue as vehemently for “getting government off their backs or out of their lives.” They simply wouldn’t have time to bitch, because they’d be looking for jobs.

  2. Interesting post, what many of the green movement refuse to acknowledge is the (now known) manipulation of data to support the claims of global warming and climate change. I believe there is a use for a structured agency like the EPA but with limited power and not the power to choke out the entire non-green economy. The EPA has become a beast and the people of this nation largely have no idea what it is costing them. As well, Obama’s foolish belief that green technology is within his grasp is the pipe dream of a fool. He has invested in belly-up outcomes and continues to push an agenda that is perhaps decades away from true benefit to this country.

  3. Excellent essay in all respects.

    The strategy of the statists is to control mega-issues such as “climate change” and “healthcare”. If you can do that — remove the people’s ability to exercise free will in those matters — you have effectively gained total control and asserted governmental dominance on a massive and unprecedented scale.
