Rethinking Earth Day
Posted by Nancy on April 22, 2010
It seemed so benign at first - celebate Mother Earth, teach the children not to litter, work for clean air and water……..
How did we get to an anthropogenic global warming scam, eco-thugs, and attempted takeover of our economy?
Is there a reason those behind the first Earth Day chose to celebrate it on the 100th anniversary of the birth of that great Marxist, Vladimir Lenin?
As the saying goes, there are no coincidences.
During that first Earth Day man was proclaimed the polluter and would remain as such for subsequent observances that decade. By the Eighties the event’s organizers cast man as the tree killer, and, with the Nineties, man evolved into the animal species annihilator. The global warming scare never really became popular until the late Nineties, and when it did, it provided a hook that the compatriots at the Earth Day headquarters could hang their red berets on. Known as anthropogenic global warming, it was a sexy sell: humans-particularly Americans-were now screwing up the entire planet’s weather. By 2000 Earth Day organizers took ownership of this new angle and would never let go. Sussman
Brian Sussman’s very interesting article is instructive on the agenda behind eco-movers, and why the House-passed cap and trade tax has less to do with saving the environment than it does with income redistribution. The American Clean Energy and Security Act, scheduled for discussion in the Senate the day after Sunday’s Earth Day celebrations, shows the movement’s true agenda.
For example, buried on pages 1014-1016 of the bill is the “Monthly Energy Refund.” According to this trick, for those with a gross income that “does not exceed 150 percent of the poverty line … a direct deposit” of an undisclosed amount of money will be sent “into the eligible household’s designated bank account[.]On pages 502-503 we find the “Low Income Community Energy Efficiency Program,” whereby grants will be issued “to increase the flow of capital and benefits to low income communities, minority-owned and woman-owned businesses and entrepreneurs[.]“Further proving that this is actually a welfare scheme, on page 973 we discover that for workers who lose their manufacturing jobs because the caps on their companies are too repressive and their employer either has to shut down or move operations to the third world to avoid regulation, the “adversely affected worker” shall receive 70 percent of his prior weekly wage, “payable for a period not longer than 156 weeks.” In addition, on pages 986-987 we read that the unemployed worker can submit up to $1,500 in job search reimbursements and get another $1,500 to cover his moving expenses.And then there are the new federally mandated building codes, which will supersede local rules and regulations. The new codes will be enforced by what I refer to in Climategate as a “green goon squad.” On pages 319-324 of the House bill we read that the Secretary of Energy “shall enhance compliance by conducting training and education of builders and other professionals in the jurisdiction concerning the national energy efficiency building code.” These EPA badge-wearing G-Men will be funded through global warming revenues procured through the cap-and-trade scheme, as well as by $25 million designated annually from the Department of Energy “to provide necessary enforcement of a national energy efficiency building code[.]“
Kiss more of your freedom goodbye if this bill passes. Meanwhile, teach your children not to blindly believe all the eco-babble they bring home from school about loving Mother Earth and saving the environment.
