I am on the Friends of the Earth (FOE) email list and receive a steady stream of theirs and the Sierra Club’s lies about the environment. A recent FOE mailing stating that “Devastation from climate change has become all too frequent.”


This is simply an outright lie. Inherent in natural events such as hurricanes and typhoons, blizzards, tornadoes, floods, droughts, and forest fires is the damage they cause, but FOE asserted that “People in vulnerable communities are already struggling with dirty air, unsafe housing and increased cancer rates. So when extreme weather hits, its impacts are even more devastating.”


All communities, from small towns to major cities are by definition “vulnerable”, but the air has undergone significant clean-up over the years so this is not a common problem anywhere. As for cancer rates, they too have been in decline thanks to advances in medical care. It is doubtful that most Americans live in allegedly unsafe housing these days. Houses on both coastlines are vulnerable to ocean storms. Houses inland are vulnerable to floods and fires. There is nothing inherently "environmental" about this. It's about location.



All this is little more than blatant scare mongering and FOE was calling on its members and others who received its email to “Call on President Obama to ensure that all Americans are protected from climate disasters.” 

No President has any control over weather events. To FOE, however, this is a call for “critical environmental justice.”


There is no such thing as “environmental justice.” It is an invention of environmental groups that are intent on convincing people that whatever they do or fail to do somehow has an impact on the weather.


Indeed, the entire global warming hoax, now called climate change, was based on the lie that humans were responsible for producing huge amounts of carbon dioxide via industry, driving, or making some toast for breakfast. The environmental enemy was and is the use of energy, but it is energy that has so vastly improved and protected everyone’s life.


In a recent article, Dr. Craig Idso, the founder and former president of the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change, a coeditor of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change, and James M. Taylor, a senior fellow of The Heartland Institute and the managing editor of Environmental & Climate News, a monthly publication, examined how “Global Warming Alarmism Denies Sound Science.”


They took note of the way the Fifth Assessment Report of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change moved away from its earlier predictions and assertions. “The IPCC report contradicts claims that global warming is causing more extreme weather” and “admits the lack of global warming this century defies nearly all computer models that predict rapid future warming.” The organization devoted to the global warming hoax has been forced to retreat from decades of lies about it.


While FOE tries to scare people with references to “extreme weather disasters”, Idso and Taylor pointed to the fact that “Global hurricane frequency is undergoing a long-term decline, with global hurricane and tropical storm activity at record lows during the past several years…The United States is benefitting from the longest period in recorded history without a major hurricane strike. Tornado activity is in long-term decline, with major tornado strikes (F3 or higher) showing a remarkable decline in recent decades.”


This is not to say that hurricanes like super storm Sandy or tornadoes have not occurred, but it is to say that there have been far less. These weather events affecting the United States have been in decline and that is the reality.


The FOE claim that any President can possibly “protect communities” is absurd. It is a lie.


The most worrisome aspect of environmental lies is that they are used to justify governmental policies.

The new Environmental Protection Agency administrator, Gina McCarthy, ahead of a trip to China, told a liberal advocacy group in Washington that she has devoted her life to protecting the environment: “And I really see no greater issue and no more urgent threat to public health than climate change.”


There is NOTHING the EPA can do about CLIMATE CHANGE.


The present global climate is, in fact, in a lengthy cooling cycle, not caused by anything to do with human activity, but by a reduction in solar radiation due to its own diminished cycle of magnetic storms (sunspots).


Cleaning the nation’s air and water is a public health activity, but denying Americans access to the nation’s vast reservoirs of coal, oil, and natural gas is an attack on the nation’s economic growth and a denial of the energy it requires to recover from the 2008 financial crisis, providing jobs and keeping energy costs under control.


Environmentalism is based on lies and the lies reflect an agenda that regards humanity as the enemy of the Earth.

I have seen several Ozarks hillbillies get rich off these Hollywood types who come in to show these hicks how to farm. They buy a rocky brush covered hillside farm at west coast prices, spend several fortunes cleaning it up and building up the soil, then realize it will never produce more than their neighbors farms that they were laughing at. They  then sell it back to the original owner for half what they gave for it, with it now ready to farm.

The difference is the ECOmaniacs are not spending THEIR money, they are telling us how to spend ours and in many if not most cases destroying our country in the process.

I'm watching for Indian tribes to build wind farms so they can legally kill eagles for the next thirty years.

Time to start calling them what they are  ECOmaniacs. Because they read something in a book or saw it on a screen they know more about caring for our natural world than those who have lived it for many generations. They wouldn't recognize real nature if it slapped them in the face and stomped their toes. Their Hollywood version of reality/fancy is laughable if it were not so serious. Those who would rule others will always find something new to regulate, and our Hollywood audience is ready to support any good socialist cause.

Global warming or climate change is the biggest hoax ever brought upon the world. It is the one world order types who are pushing this load of crap and we had better push back twice as hard as they are if we are to debunk this load of crap and lies they are spreading.

The Obama Administrations Miscalculation on Climate change .... and what we need is ramping up  of a food production  means to offset the current methods of farming because the growing cycles are going to be shorter if what is said comes to pass   .

Had a talk w/ a 'Greenie' about the climate and humans, I told him since he wanted to reduce the human population he should do the walk instead of the talk and step off the local bridge. He thought that was just crazy talk and I said yes that he was crazy and go take the walk.

Environmental Justice - Social Justice - same extreme left Progressive attempts to increase TAXES and reduce industrialization. FOE, Sierra Club, Greenpeace and others fund a E=GREEN think tank. A few years ago their chief scientist came on TV and said for the earth to be sustainable the population of humans must be reduced by 2/3.

Does that ever prove that the EPA, NASA, NOAA, Endangered species act, and more where they say using Fossil fuels kill millions for lung issues and allergies - then throw on cancer - they predicted that Chernobyl would cause 20 million deaths, well the last real number was in the low thousands if you include all cancers without deducting the rate in the normal population. In fact if you Google the Chernobyl Ladies - they never left for long and they are living longer in the danger dead zone than those that left.

So, needless to say the facts are coming home to roost and their gross misrepresentations are being exposed.

The climate is indeed warming because we are on the warming side of the latest ice age cycle, the minimum of which occurred 11,000 years ago. No one knows when the next maximum will occur, but ice age cycles can easily last 40,000 years or more, and have been going on for millions of years. Man and his activities have absolutely nothing to do with it. Moreover, until we can shift the Earth in its orbit, there nothing we can do about it except prepare for the inevitable changes. By diverting resources away from energy and other free market forces, all the FOE types are doing is ensuring millions will be UNprepared for these changes, leading to more misery and climate-related death.

Humanity is the enemy of the earth. The earth is nature but humans destroy nature. They were dropped from the mother ship about 6000 years ago and have done nothing but ravage the earths resources for their own selfish use, the animals and trees and other parts of the earth and nature be damned.

I hope everyone has their sarc detectors on, but this is the way the greenies think!!
