Progressives Preach Doom and Gloom “Full Earth”

The environmentalist wackos are always good for a laugh. The only problem with them is that they are deadly serious and have connections to socialists and other big government types who are all to willing to use so-called climate change as an excuse to push socialism on the US and the world. Last week one environmentalist crazy suggested that those of us who deny climate change as they define it should be tattooed. The writer backed off his statement toward the end of his editorial but the message is clear, it is acceptable to brand and attack people who dare to question saintly scientists and their big government benefactors.
NY Times Columnist Thomas Friedman declared yesterday that the Earth was full. A full Earth explains why food prices are rising according to Friedman and it is a signal that massive social upheaval is going to happen throughout the world. Let’s ignore Friedman’s misunderstanding of economics (food prices are rising because of a weak dollar, government regulations and because we’re burning our food as ethanol) and focus on a full Earth and massive social upheaval.
A declaration of a full Earth is essentially a license for government to kill children or prevent children from being born. While Friedman notes environmental problems in China, proponents of a full Earth must adore China’s one child policy. After all, if Earth is full then less humans should be on the planet. One way to achieve that is to kill off all the old people. Not being politically expedient to kill off the old folks, killing off the unborn is much easier. It stands to reason that if Earth is full the best way to reduce the number of people is to prevent children from being born. A one child policy would, in theory, reduce the number of people in the world by half in a generation or two. That’s great for Earth worshipers but it isn’t so hot for those of us who believe life is a blessing from God and who desire a large family or for those of us who don’t buy the full Earth line.
Friedman predicts massive social upheaval in the next century because of climate change. This argument goes hand in hand with the progressive desire for massive social upheaval and change. The progressives want to separate us from our historic Christian and capitalist past and create a new socialist civilization. The climate change, Earth worshiper types want to destroy western civilization and capitalism and create an environmentally friendly paradise. You can see why far left progressives are almost always advocates of the faulty climate change theories. By scaring people into believing the Earth is in danger, they can push for the radical progressive change they so desire.
While it may be 90 outside today, the fact is the Earth is not warming and it hasn’t since 1998. Over the past several years dozens of prominent climate change scientists have been exposed as frauds and snake oil salesmen. Over the past two decades, hundreds of laws in nations throughout the world have shown to have little to no affect on the environment, despite being enacted with great environmental fanfare. Climate change is a fraud, it is nothing more than a means to push a big government, anti-freedom end. Earth is not full, we are not suffering from global warming and the environment is just fine. The far left is lying to you because they want power over you and your life.
