Hitler once said that if you told a big lie, it was more likely that people would believe it, than if you told a small lie. Â Also, the more often you told a lie, the more believable it would seem to be.
Earth Day is a big lie, and it is told often and loudly.
A clean environment is a good thing, and pollution is a serious problem. Â However, that does not mean that people should be harmed in order to leave our planet pristine and untouched. Â We are part of the environment, part of our planet. Â Earth includes people, and we belong here.
No matter how many billions of people inhabit the Earth, vast stretches of land remain uninhabited, and often unexplored. Â Here inÂ California, for example, more than half the land has never been explored, let alone lived in, not even by the native tribes.
The fact is that extreme environmentalism, not the kind the encourage you to turn off the lights when they are not needed, or to limit your showers to five minutes, but the super extreme measures such as livingÂ withoutÂ modernÂ conveniences, are reallyÂ designedÂ to control the masses.
Earth Day also happens to be the birthday of Lenin -- one of the founders of the Soviet Union. Â Some say that this is no coincidence.
â€œWe are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation,â€ wrote Washington University biologist Barry Commoner for a 1970 Earth Day issue of â€œEnvironment,â€ a scientific journal.
He did not put an end date to his prediction. But Ehrlich did.
â€œPopulation will inevitably and completelyÂ outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make,â€ Ehrlich said in 1970.
â€œThe death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.â€
Right. Â You bet. Â We all starved to death in the1970s. Â What planet are they living on? Â It certainly isn't Earth.
Our biggest problem today, in the developed world, is obesity. Â Furthermore, we throw out enough food to feed all the people around the world who can't afford to buy it. Â The real Â problem is money. Â The bailed-out banks are the problem.
