Earth Day 2015

Earth Day 2015-02
“Thought for the Day” by Anthony J. Sadar

To paraphrase Archie Bunker, “Earth Day is once again at our throats.”

Well, here’s a wishful thought for the 45th Earth Day: “Let’s take all the hyperventilated resources wasted since the early 1980s to fuel public panic over supposed man-made global warming and use that energy to power the planet into the next century.”

“What a wonderful world this would be…” (h/t Sam Cooke)

All the talk about “saving” the Earth should have been focused on action to “lift” a billion people out of poverty.

But, as the saying goes, “talk” is cheap.

And caring for the planet’s “poor” is expensive, and hard, especially in terms of getting the world’s “ruling class” to even budge on their arrogant “leftist ideology” that aids in the “impoverishment” of the masses.

Grandiose schemes designed to “rescue” Mother Earth never seem to include “her children.”

Whether from the 15th United Nations “Climate Change Conference” in cold Copenhagen in 2009, or from unseasonably chilly Cancún in 2010, or Durban in 2011, Doha 2012, Warsaw 2013, Lima 2014, or this year’s late-autumn plush “picnic” in Paris, it’s easy from the opulence of endless “climate-change” summits to demand “ecological” salvation.

The hard part is “saving” anything except maybe “selfie self-esteem and bureaucratic booty.”

45 Years: “Happy Birthday Earth Day”

On this forty-fifth birthday of the first annual “Earth Day,” let us revisit some of the “predictions” made on that glorious day.

Remember, it doesn’t matter whether the “prophecies” came true, but whether they affected “Hope and Change” that leads to the equality to be found in the world of “Next Tuesday”

“It is already too late to avoid mass starvation,” proclaimed Denis Hayes, Chief organizer for Earth Day.

“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,” said professor Peter Gunter.

“We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation,” said Barry Commoner, a Washington University biologist.

“In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution… by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half,” according to Life magazine.

“At the present rate of nitrogen buildup, it’s only a matter of time before light will be filtered out of the atmosphere and none of our land will be usable,” according to ecologist and UC Davis professor Kenneth Watt.

“Air pollution…is certainly going to take hundreds of thousands of lives in the next few years alone,” lamented Paul Ehrlich, author and Stanford University biology professor.

“By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate… that there won’t be any more crude oil. You’ll drive up to the pump and say, ‘Fill ‘er up, buddy,’ and he’ll say, ‘I am very sorry, there isn’t any,’” warned Kenneth Watt.

“One theory assumes that the earth’s cloud cover will continue to thicken as more dust, fumes, and water vapor are belched into the atmosphere by industrial smokestacks and jet planes. Screened from the sun’s heat, the planet will cool, the water vapor will fall and freeze, and a new Ice Age will be born,” warned Newsweek magazine.

“The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age,” warned professor Kenneth Watt.

“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,”  Stanford University biologist Paul Ehrlich.

“Most of the people who are going to die in the greatest cataclysm in the history of man have already been born… [By 1975] 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.”  Stanford University biologist Paul Ehrlich.

Despite the fact that these predictions are “laughable in hindsight,” they have been used to give “credence” to our socialist agenda.

Let us applaud these “brave” scientists who have sacrificed their “credibility” in pursuit of something greater.

They sounded the “false” alarm to give “cover” to our fine politicians working under the “guise” of the Democrat Party.

These “untruths” have been so universally “powerful and persuasive,” that even the so-called “opposition” party has been forced to “accept” them as fact.

“Earth Day” has been a powerful tool of “deception” toward attaining the “Utopian State of Equality” that we have “struggled to achieve” for the past century.

Let us remember the sacrifices this “brave” scientists made for us as we celebrate 45 years of “Earth Day.”
