Earth Day 2009! The Green Generation!


Recommended Posts

For all those waiting in patient expectation, this year's Earth Day celebrations will be held this Wednesday, April 22nd, at various locales on Earth.

 

(Nostalgia buffs may want to peruse last year's reflections on this momentous annual event, "Earth Day 2008″ at http://www.genelalor.com/blog1/?p=78.)

 

This will be the 39th annual Earth Day. The 2009 and 2010 observances have been subtitled, "The Green Generation," in recognition of the advent of spring, I foolishly assumed, but that was an incorrect assumption as it turns out. I guess the package deal is meant to reduce the Earth Day carbon footprint, or something.

 

Old farts may recall the original Earth Day in 1970 when its proponents were warning Earthlings to button up their overcoats, assuming that by now the then-imminent New Ice Age would have spread across the continent and enveloped everything from the Statue of Liberty to the fruited plain to the Golden Gate Bridge in one huge ice cube. We all know what assumptions and assuming can lead to.

 

We all make mistakes, no? The Earth Day people view critical mistakes as occasions to re-group, take a temperature reading, and re-define what they're talking about since that can vary a great deal.

 

The Great Freeze Scam was thereafter supplanted in favor of the Global Warming Scam, merely coincidental with age-old, cyclical and natural solar activity, until the damned planet started cooling off again. Undismayed by reality, those who truly care about the Earth as opposed to the rest of us who don't give a damn, switched gears and tactics and adopted a new buzz term, "climate change." That, they figured, would cover them no matter what the Earth decided to do.

 

Put another way, any port in a storm, as long as an atmosphere of crisis could be maintained. Crises scared people and a sense of crisis in lieu of actual science was much more effective in instilling fear. More importantly, scared people would go along with just about anything, even absurdity.

 

Within the infinitesimally brief period of mere decades, the Earth Day gang had gone full circle. They initially were warning humankind that we were all gradually becoming encased in a global ice cube that would be so cold that human habitation thoughout the planet would be extinguished and we would all wish we were basking in the warm fires of Hell. It progressed to terrifying the planet that it would be bubbling over from an unbearable, unending heat. Lady Liberty and the Golden Gate could be on the verge of melting into, respectively, New York harbor and San Francisco Bay and America's fruited plain would be like toasted oats. They finally settled on the fail-safe, mid-range buzz term of climate change which would cover their crisis-centered sorry asses no matter what.

 

I think the 2004 blockbuster movie, "The Day after Tomorrow" was the tipping point in the thinking of the Earth Day scaremongers. It had some great special effects but the preposterous premise that the hot horrors of global warming would, virtually overnight, lead to the frigid ferocity of global freezing tested their imaginations to such a degree that an alternative had to be found to preserve the minds of Al Gore and Company, and climate change was their savior.

 

Hope springs eternal with that whole crew, not hope for humanity as much as hope to accomplish the true goals of the movement which are wrapped up in U.N. schemes such as the Kyoto Protocol and re-distribution of the world's wealth, a euphemism for stealing from Americans to give unto non-Americans. There are, of course, other forces in play, too numerous to detail here but all of which have as the ultimate, long-term goal of giving America its well-deserved and long overdue comeuppance and, as candidate Obama let slip with Joe the Plumber, forcing us into "sharing the wealth."

 

By far the best book on the subject, devoid of gobbledegook and stuffed with straightforward facts, is, "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming and Environmentalism" by Christopher C. Horner. Also worth a read are "Our Days Are, Once Again, Numbered," http://www.genelalor.com/blog1/?p=682, "Global Warming Fraud," http://www.genelalor.com/blog1/?p=701, and a slew of other worthwhile articles on this website.

 

Even more insulting to intelligence than the whole United Nations plot and the pseudo-environmentalist charade that is Earth Day is this excerpt from The Earth Day Network which, by the way, anticipates a billion participants and "a billion kinds of green:"

 

"Earth Day Network's "Green GenerationTM" campaign is . . . Similar to "The Greatest Generation" that confronted the challenge of World War II, who inspired the major societal changes that followed, the Green Generation includes ordinary people who are engaged in individual and collective activities to improve their health, to improve their schools, to participate in building a solution to urgent national and global issues, such as climate change or the world's water crises: http://www.earthday.net/greengeneration."

 

That's all very inspiring, all very uplifting, and all poppycock slander to compare Earth Day radicals, the Green Generation, to World War Two's Greatest Generation. Note what they do and not just what they say: The Greens are intent on tearing down America and resurrecting it in its own distorted image as a new world order, an internationalist, socialist, greenish world.

The Greatest Generation of American heroes weren't much concerned with "societal changes." They fought for and were dedicated to the survival and prosperity of the United States of America as a free and independent nation.

 

To our great benefit and deserving our unending gratitude, the Greats won the war and succeeded in their goals. To our great detriment and greater shame will the Greens win and succeed in theirs.

Ok... for Earth Day I have decided to go easy on the environment and sit on my buttock in bed, watch the market, read the forum, drink coffee, drive to go work on the boat and walk the da-n dog, knock off 1 or 2 items on the 100+ honey do list, think about getting my fa- -ss to work on putting the pipes on the scooter, stare at the ol' Suburban for a few minutes, wonder what a clean garage would look like, take a nap, make up things I did before the wife gets home to answer the "what did you do today" question (kind of like an IQ test, has to be believable), scratch and pick at myself, scratch and pick at the dog, scratch and pick at the @#$% parrot.... ;)

 

Gosh, just remembered, I do that every day!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

OK, I won't flush the @#$% toilet for an hour or so :angry: ...

 

Best,

 

Joe

I'm sacrificing big time for Earth Day.

It's 85 degrees right now in The Peoples Demokratik Republik of San Antonio, and I left my 40 MPG Indian at home and drove my 16 MPG F-150 to work. With the Air Conditioner blasting away at full speed......

16mpg? Not bad for a big boat like that.

hmm...too bad this is about politics...i could care less about earth day, and i think the extremist on this front are just as bad as neo-con extremist..and actually, i didn't read the post because it was too long, so i'm not sure what it's about..in fact..i'm not sure what earth day is about, except it was a free party on campus started by some guy that killed a woman..BUTTT...

 

you know in the last 20 years the arctic ice cap has receeded far more than any other time in recorded history? or that there is now open water all the way b/alaska and russia when there has NEVER been that way before? or that the russians have claimed stake to an oil find under the polar ice cap (that's not feasable to drill thru now) because they anticipate drilling by 2050? or that there is 2x as much CO2 trapped in the frozen tundra up there that's frozen, and as it melts it's (CO2) released...when there's no more tundra, the affect of that on the atmosphere will be catastrophic. or that the oil reserves in the national park in AK will keep the US lit for a whopping 1 YR!!? these are FACTS that are outside of the normal fluctuations. And let's talk supply...The US is 5% of the world population, but accounts for 25% of oil consumption. The US military is the world's largest consumer of oil..what do you think the next world war will be over?

you think spending now and paying later is a bad idea? same can be said for putting off efforts to find alternative fuel sources and being more eco-friendly because of politics. regardless of the cause, if there's a danger, maybe we should address it..just maybe?

with that said..i'm a SUV driving, 10 computer having, tv always on, cool weapon loving kid...

but i don't have kids...
