Earth Day, the “Baby on Board” Sign Writ Large.

leave a comment »

Ok all you maggot ridden haters of the Earth.  You know who you are.  All you scummy 99-percenters who are not as highly evolved as the tender Gaia fearing crunchy granola eating hippies.  You will, today, unlike the other 364 days of the year become conscious of Mother Earth. 

So be good little zombies and buy all the Earth Day merchandise from over priced specialty outfitters (all made in China under sweatshop conditions with no environmental controls), flush only on a duce and ONLY when it’s a really bad one (I had General Tso’s last night with extra chilies so I’ll be flushing every time… sorry tender Earth Mother), and revile yourselves for the planet killing parasites you are.

That’s pretty taste Earth Day leaves me with.  Since before the Greens killed all new nuclear power plants, bashed American industrial might back to the stone age, and implanted in every school age child a general hatred for Capitalism and freedom, I’ve picked up my empties, not thrown stuff on the ground, made sure I picked up my mess when at a park or camping, and generally been a pretty good steward of nature.  Why?  Because it was hip?  Because it got me lai… Um… affection?  NO!  Because any animal evolved past the state of guinea pig knows you don’t crap where you eat.

The vile assumption of slaves of Earth Day madness that we who don’t share their affinity for Gaia inspired hemp fests are somehow evil malignancies who only want to kill their spirit mother is offensive.  It is just like the “Baby on Board” stupidity.  “I know you dive like a maniac all the rest of the time and don’t care if you kill people, but I have a baby on board so please, don’t drive like you normally do.  Drive like you care.  Please.  It’s for the children!

Just because you air headed pseudo-science believing wannabes think that “saving the world” is the only reason to get out of bed, don’t make the mistake of thinking that your “Human Plague” attitude is in any way superior to we who plod through life simply doing what we can to make our tiny corner of the planet more clean and livable for Humans.  Conservationists have done more to protect and steward the lands of the this country than any sign carrying patchouli stink ridden Green who thinks shopping at Whole Foods and donating to the WWF absolves them from driving their SUV, heating/cooling a 4000 square foot house, and maintaining their pool. 

Don’t get me wrong, I have no problems with SUVs, 4000 square foot houses, and pools.  But if you are going to feel guilty about it, just step down to something that won’t make you feel dirty.  Don’t expect ME to step down to make you feel better.  And just because YOU can’t handle being successful, don’t ride my tail when I make it. 

And that is my main beef with Earth Day and all the other foolishness that is the Green movement.  It really isn’t about saving the Earth.  The Earth was here long before we were and will, if God so wills it, be here long after.  We are puny little figures on its grand surface.  We, in mass, can mess up portions of it.  We can set rivers on fire.  We can muck up forests and cause fish kills.  But ultimately, the Earth adapts and will go on.  And we adapt and clean up our local messes and go on as well. 

No, Earth Day and Greenism, for the rank and file, are simply about feeling like you are doing something.  It’s a scam to make people feel like they are doing something worth while when all they are doing is empowering those who are conning them. “Think Global. Act Local.” Is not a call to go pick up paper or clean up a stream bed.  It’s a call to think of “saving the world” and agitating others in your area to do the same.  Ok, great.  We all think about “saving the world”.  How is my paid Indulgence Carbon Offset going to do that?  How is giving money to Green candidates going to do that? 

You save the world when you think local and act local.  When you stay in the tangible and fix the tangible.  Jesus said it best when he said, “Look you moron, you can not take the splinter out of someone else’s eye until you get the blasted log out of your own.  For My sake, it’s not rocket science!  No Judas, I’m not explaining Rocket science to you again!” 

Ok, so he didn’t say that “exactly”.  But the point is the same.  You make the world a better place by fixing your focus on what is in your sphere of control.  If everyone does that, then world becomes a better place. 

Greenism, for its leaders, is simply a movement where people who hate humans and freedom glom together to repeat a tired old idea.  “Freedom and Capitalism is a bad thing because it lets people do what the want and it gives them the funds to do what they want.  That freedom hurts Gaia, and, more importantly, our power, and therefore MUST be curtailed.” 

If you disagree, please look at all the ever-increasing EPA regulations on companies.  We have cleaner air than just about anyone else in the modern world.  We’ve scrubbed our stacks and renewed our energy until our factories are setting new lows for dangerous (at least those that are deemed dangerous) emissions.  But is that enough?  No.  We need “Cap and Trade”.  As soon as industry (read Capitalist ingenuity) adapts to the new regs and surpasses them, the Greens turn around and raise the bar again. 

Why are there no new nuclear plants?  Perhaps the cleanest most efficient form of energy to date?  For a few cubic feet of waste, you get tons of energy.  Safeguards are so strict that even the 3 mile island incident only released a few curies of contamination that was OVER dealt with.  Simple, they aren’t allowed (regulatory oversight makes them too expensive to maintain or kills them during construction by ever-changing standards) because they work and that much energy delivered to the masses, freeing up fossil fuels for transportation, would kill the Green movement.  Which isn’t about being green, it’s about being in control. 

For some of us who look out on a morning misty lake and can see the fingerprints of a loving God and marvel at the sheer insane love He must have to do all of this for us… no, for ME, we tend to take keeping the place going pretty seriously.  But we never forget that it is here for us.  …For humans.  And it is to be used wisely, conserved.  Not preserved in an unaltered state that benefits no one, no animal, and not even the land itself.  If you deny the Earth its rightful place under our stewardship, you deny the Earth’s potential and do more damage to it than any oil spill.  To deny anyone or anything or any action its rightful place in God’s plan it to deny God as well.
