Save The Earth. From Environmentalists.
“The Earth’s temperature hasn’t increased significantly in about 15 years, which wouldn’t be big news except global warming extremists had predicted temperatures would soar during that time because of manmade greenhouse-gas emissions,” The Orange County Register writes today.
“That forecast would be just another failed hypothesis, except governments around the world used the threatened overheating as an excuse to regulate, tax and subsidize in order to curb greenhouse gases and, of course, to save the Earth.”
“In 1989 the Miami Herald quoted a U.N. environment official who warned of a ’10-year window of opportunity to solve’ global warming, because ‘entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.’ We know how that turned out.”
From Thursday’s Washington Examiner:
(Excerpt) “If you guys think this is a bad idea, I need to unwind the W[est] W[ing] QUICKLY,” so said Vice President Biden’s then-Chief of Staff Ron Klain in an email about President Obama’s impending $535 million loan guarantee to California solar panel manufacturer Solyndra, on March 7, 2009. In fact, some officials in the Obama administration thought the Solyndra loan was a lousy idea. “This deal is NOT ready for prime time,” a White House budget analyst emailed three days later.
Documents made public Wednesday by the House Energy and Commerce Committee show why: An Energy Department analysis of Solyndra’s business model performed two years ago predicted that the firm would run out of money in September 2011. Yes, that was “September 2011″. But that fact was ignored by the president and his political advisers who wanted a “green jobs” photo op, no matter the cost. The result was, as an Energy Department analyst said in another email, “given the time pressure we are under to sign-off on Solyndra, we don’t have time to change the model.”
But while career staffers at Energy were trying to stop the Solyndra loan, Obama appointees in the White House were determined to push it through as fast as possible…(continued)

Wiping out animals to save the Earth? That’s what environmentalism has finally devolved into.
Once again we must ask, who will save the Earth, from environmentalists?
Saving the baby seals was once the signature cause of environmentalism. The global-warming crowd used the image of an unhappy polar bear “stranded” on a small iceberg to rally support for their cause. Concern for animal rights is now being kicked to the curb in Australia. In order to save the planet, animals must die. It’s all part of a “carbon-farming initiative” designed to help the land Down Under meet its so-called greenhouse-gas emission targets under the Kyoto Treaty…
…“The scheme covers reductions in emissions from savannah burning,” a summary of the current legislation explained. It also covers “animal emissions avoidance projects such as camel reduction.”…
…The deserts of the Australian outback are home to the world’s largest population of camels, so slaughtering these defenseless creatures has become a sanctioned activity. As ruminants, camels emit a great deal of methane. In greenhouse-gas terms, four camels do the same annual damage to the ecosystem as one Toyota Prius. These impious emissions would come to an end as an eco-friendly helicopter rains fire upon 600 to 750 camels each day. At current prices, that would bring a daily bounty of $11,000 in carbon credits.

‘Gang Greens’ Doomsday prophets are even nuttier
When it comes to ‘the end is here’ craziness, environmentalists top Harold Camping
WASHINGTON – On the day radio broadcaster Harold Camping wrongly predicted marks the beginning of the end of the world, the nation’s largest grassroots advocate of rational environmental policy reminded Americans Saturday that “Doomsday prophets” like Camping have nothing on leading environmentalists when it comes to completely phony predictions of planetary doom.
“If you want predictions of global doom as hateful as they are phony no one beats the environmentalist movement,” said American Tradition Partnership Executive Director Donald Ferguson. “Blinded by a burning hatred of technology, science and mankind itself, environmentalists routinely turn their fantasies of wiping out humanity into phony ‘predictions’ the world will end unless they are handed government power. They hope these scare tactics will terrorize citizens and lawmakers into adopting their hateful, unscientific agenda.”
“The environmentalist movement will be wiped out long before the Earth will,” said Ferguson. “Public support for the environmentalist movement continues to plummet, and their decades-long record of phony ‘predictions’ about climate have much to do with their continuing marginalization.”
Long before Camping was predicting the End Times would begin May 21, leading environmentalists were embarrassing themselves with crazy predictions like:
“This cooling has already killed hundreds of thousands of people. If it continues and no strong action is taken, it will cause world famine, world chaos and world war, and this could all come about before the year 2000.” – Lowell Ponte “The Cooling”, 1976 (1)
“The battle to feed all of humanity is over. In the 1970′s and 1980′s hundreds of millions of people will starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now.”
- Paul Ehrlich, “The Population Bomb” (2)
“I would take even money that England will not exist in the year 2000.” – Paul Ehrlich, 1969 (3)
“There are ominous signs that the earth’s weather patterns have begun to change dramatically and that these changes may portend a drastic decline in food production – with serious political implications for just about every nation on earth. The drop in food production could begin quite soon… The evidence in support of these predictions has now begun to accumulate so massively that meteorologists are hard-pressed to keep up with it”. – Peter Gwynne, Newsweek, April 28, 1975 (4)
“This (cooling) trend will reduce agricultural productivity for the rest of the century.” – Peter Gwynne, Newsweek 1976 (5)
“Hundreds of millions of people will soon perish in smog disasters in New York and Los Angeles…the oceans will die of DDT poisoning by 1979…the U.S. life expectancy will drop to 42 years by 1980 due to cancer epidemics.” – Paul Ehrlich, Ramparts (6)
“In ten years all important animal life in the sea will be extinct. Large areas of coastline will have to be evacuated because of the stench of dead fish.” – Paul Ehrlich on Earth Day, 1970 (7)
“If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder by the year 2000…This is about twice what it would take to put us in an ice age.” – Kenneth E.F. Watt on Earth Day, 1970 (8)
“Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.” – George Wald, Harvard Biologist, on Earth Day, 1970 (9)
“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.” – Paul Ehrlich, Mademoiselle, April 1970 (10)
“Most of the people who are going to die in the greatest cataclysm in the history of man have already been born. By… 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, Ramparts (11)
“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” – Peter Gunter, The Living Wilderness, Spring 1970 (12)
“This vast tragedy, however, is nothing compared to the nutritional disaster that seems likely to overtake humanity in the 1970s (or, at the latest, the 1980s) … A situation has been created that could lead to a billion or more people starving to death.” – Paul Ehrlich, “The End of Affluence” (13)

More documented examples of environmentalists lies intended to terrorize the populace into compliance.
For this year’s Earth Day celebration, Reason.tv is proud to present “The Top Five Environmental Disasters that Didn’t Happen.” The environmental movement began in 1962 when Rachel Carson published her best-selling book Silent Spring. And ever since, chicken littles have warned us about imminent environmental disasters that ultimately didn’t happen.
We all worried needlessly about acid rain, expanding deserts and global cooling, but these failed predictions weren’t quite dire enough to make our list. To find out which prophecies of doom did make our list, you’ll need to watch Reason.tv’s “Top Five Environmental Disasters that Didn’t Happen.”

Some Democrat congressional staffers are threatening to boycott the House cafeteria and Democrat congressmembers are in full mental meltdown after Republicans have instructed managers to resume the use of traditional disposable cups and plastic utensils over the fragile, flimsy, “green” spoons, knives and forks ordered under former Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
The changes come after most House staffers, both Republicans and Democrats, demanded the change. The “green” utensils routinely shattered in staffers’ hands and even melted in soup, leading staffers to begin bringing cups and utensils from home.
Switching back to affordable, reliable utensils will also save taxpayers half a million dollars, as “green” works and spoons are also considerably more expensive.
As they tend to do with most everything, environmentalists have come completely mentally unhinged and begun estimating the body count.
“Democrats see the cafeteria changes as symbolic of Republican hostility toward the environment,” the San Francisco Chronicle reports of the decision to use utensils that can’t even cut meatloaf.
“This seems like a small thing, but it sends a terrible message,” wailed Rep. Chellie Pingree, D-Maine.
“I can hardly wait for the lead paint,” Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., plaintively whined through Twitter.
The move is actually good for the environment, as well. Pelosi’s attempt to collect and recycle all the utensils increased total energy use, and the constant breakage and melting led to staffers using even more disposable utensils.
I’m not sure which environmentalist belief is crazier, thinking that using sturdier, more reliable spoons that don’t shatter in your eye is “Republican hostility toward the environment” or believing that using the wrong spoon will literally destroy the planet.
