Hypocrisy. Revolving door between EPA/Big Green. Collusion. Government regulations written by Big Green organizations. Lawsuits by Big Green using tax $$ that give the EPA more power and Big Green more money. Elitism that harms Third World countries. Power grabs. Hate-mongering that threatens our freedoms. Oh they can talk clean and planet-saving all they want but the environmental movement is ugly and dirty. Here’s just some of the facts behind the self-righteous piety.
The sanctity of peer-reviewed science? Oh, it’s gone, baby, gone. Busted by the “scientists” themselves trying to make good on their own studies and papers. http://wattsupwiththat.com/2014/07/10/peer-review-ring-busted/#more-112757
The water crisis in California? Yes there’s a drought but the real problem is politics and controversial land-use issues that have been long-predicted and just as long-ignored. http://pjmedia.com/victordavishanson/californias-hydromania/?singlepage=true
Remember the James Delingpole book Watermelons? He termed the environmental movement green on the outside and red on the inside. http://pjmedia.com/zombie/2014/09/23/climate-movement-drops-mask-admits-communist-agenda/ Delingpole understood that the real target of Big Green is capitalism, rather the End of Capitalism. Why do you think Socialist George Soros invests so heavily in media that promote a green agenda, media such as Center for American Progress and Think Progress? Soros has openly stated the only thing stopping a one-world government run by an organization such as the United Nations, is the capitalism of the United States. Why do you think the UN is so radical on green?
Big Green sues the government to enforce some regulation or make new policy, their costs are born by taxpayer $$. The EPA usually settles, Big Green keeps any monies involved and the EPA gets a legal pass for some radical regulation. http://www.forbes.com/sites/larrybell/2013/02/17/epas-secret-and-costly-sue-and-settle-collusion-with-environmental-organizations/
“Sue and Settle “ practices, sometimes referred to as “friendly lawsuits”, are cozy deals through which far-left radical environmental groups file lawsuits against federal agencies wherein court-ordered “consent decrees” are issued based upon a prearranged settlement agreement they collaboratively craft together in advance behind closed doors. Then, rather than allowing the entire process to play out, the agency being sued settles the lawsuit by agreeing to move forward with the requested action they and the litigants both want.
There is no real evidence the earth is warming, there is no evidence of extreme weather that is more extreme than any other year, there is no evidence higher levels of carbon harm the planet. The term “carbon pollution” is simply the latest attempt to scare voters, politicians, countries and taxpayers to fork over money and power to a group of self-proclaimed elite individuals and groups. http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/214877-the-climate-change-money-machine
Like I keep saying, the Dems talk about the Koch Brothers partly to inhibit big GOP donors but mostly to distract from the Super Big $$ of George Soros and Tom Steyer to the Dems. http://www.nationaljournal.com/politics/the-boys-of-summer-july-s-biggest-super-pac-donors-20140822 Never forget, “green” is about money and political power.
Regarding its failure to pay taxes on unrelated business income, the Sierra Club sends its members into communities to sell the products of a selected local solar panel company in Maryland, Utah and dozens of other states in exchange for contributions to the group. In Maryland, for example, the Sierra Club makes a $750 profit from every sale and has never paid taxes on that commercial enterprise
Regrettably, Lois Lerner was too busy playing CYA to help the Sierra Club out but I’m sure there’s lots of folks in the Obama admin that will help.
Let’s end with someone I dearly love to despise. I despise the Kennedy Dynasty in general – we’ve more than paid for the assassination of JFK, even though it wasn’t our fault – but I despise Robert Kennedy Jr the most. I always expect the worst from him and he never lets me down. http://www.nationalreview.com/article/388595/robert-kennedy-jr-aspiring-tyrant-charles-c-w-cooke
He’d like to charge the Kochs with treason and send climate-change dissenters to jail.
Green and politicians? http://wattsupwiththat.com/2014/08/13/global-warming-the-incompetent-politicians-excuse/#more-114432 Detroit blaming global warming instead of poor infrastructure maintenance. Well, yeah. If it’s AGW, Detroit politicians can expect some money from taxpayers.
