The new leadership of the EPA proposed yesterday that the White House declare carbon dioxide a health danger. Carbon dioxide, which plants absorb and animals exhale, would be ruled a pollutant.
It is a lie and fraud. You can't live without carbon dioxide and you can't live without water. Never mind that almost all greenhouse gas is water vapor.
But since the Statists can't measure water vapor and condensation, they attempt to wrestle control of carbon dioxide instead, by claiming it's toxic. But the point is, they want to control you.
William Kovacs, vice president of environmental technology and regulatory affairs at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, says such an effort would be "devastating to the economy... once the finding is made, no matter how limited, some environmental groups will sue to make sure it is applied to all aspects of the Clean Air Act."
The economy is on life support, so what does the Enviro-Statist do? He grabs more power. Because they don't care about the economy, they care about power! They're not about preserving or improving our society, they're bent on destroying it.
What does the hard left, environmentalist believe? I want you to know that they are responsible for the deaths of tens of millions of children all over Africa and Southeast Asia. Because they successfully banned DDT.
DDT saved hundreds of millions of lives. DDT was used in the United States to destroy malaria.
National Park Service ecologist David Graber, writing in The Los Angeles Times in 1989, well articulated the perversity of the extreme environmental movement.
He wrote, "we contaminated the planet with atmospheric hydrocarbons and metals beginning in the Industrial Revolution."
"The atomic age wrote another indelible signature in radio-isotopes on every bit of the Earth's surface... DDT and its kin appear even in Antarctic ice. I, for one, cannot wish upon my children or the rest of Earth... a human-managed planet, be it monstrous or, however unlikely, benign."
"I am not interested in the utility of a particular species or free-flowing river ecosystem to mankind..."
"...They have intrinsic value, more value to me than another human body or a billion of them."
"Human happiness and certainly human fecundity, are not as important as a wild and healthy planet," wrote Graber. "I know social scientists remind me that people are part of human nature, but it isn't true. Somewhere about a billion years ago... we quit the contract and became a cancer."
"We have become a plague upon ourselves and upon the Earth..."
"...Until such time as Homo sapiens should decide to rejoin nature, some of us can only hope for the right virus to come along."
The extreme environmentalist prays for the death of all of humanity.
A few years ago, Tina Rosenberg of The New York Times wrote, "Today, westerners with no memory of malaria often assume it has always been only a tropical disease. But malaria was once found as far north as Boston and Montreal. Oliver Cromwell died of malaria, and Shakespeare alludes to it (as ''ague'') in eight plays..."
"...Malaria no longer afflicts the United States, Canada and Northern Europe in part because of changes in living habits -- the shift to cities, better sanitation, window screens. But another major reason was DDT, sprayed from airplanes over American cities and towns while children played outside."
In 1970, the National Academy of Sciences wrote in a report that ''to only a few chemicals does man owe as great a debt as to DDT'' and it credited the insecticide with preventing as many as 500,000,000 human deaths.
But all of that changed in 1962, when Rachel Carson -- a rabid opponent of pesticides -- succeeded in spreading widespread hysteria about DDT's effects on wildlife and especially children. In her book Silent Spring, Carson decried the use of DDT.
She claimed DDT resulted in birth defects and mental retardation... and, yet, not one case has ever been proven. Not one.
Thus, it is a sickening irony that Carson's focus on children helped kill the use of DDT, when malaria causes the deaths of millions of children in the developing world. You see, the developing world is the target of the Enviro-Statist. For it is there that the Statist can more easily shape policy and control lives.
And the mainstream media gobbled up Carson's lies. The Environmental Defense Fund and the Sierra Club brought litigation to pressure the government to ban DDT.
An administrative law judge heard the case for months -- and ruled against the extremists. He said that DDT was not a carcinogenic hazard to man; that it was not a mutagenic hazard to man. He said the use of DDT does not have deleterious effects on freshwater fish, organisms, wild birds, or othe wildlife, let alone human beings.
But the judge's ruling was rejected by the EPA administrator in 1972, William Ruckleshaus. He attended no hearings and reportedly never read the relevant documents. Evidence was later discovered that Ruckleshaus had a fatal conflict-of-interest: he served as a fundraiser for the Environmental Defense Fund, the very group spearheading the anti-DDT campaign.
Finally, in 2006, after tens of millions of children had died, the World Health Organization changed its position on DDT.
The Enviro-Statists are responsible for the needless deaths of tens of millions of children from malaria, typhus and other diseases that could and were wiped out in other locations -- safely! -- by DDT.
In World War II, U.S. troops used to lather up with DDT. Years ago, Dr. J. Gordon Edwards wrote: "[In 1944,] I was ordered to dust every soldier in our company with [DDT]. For two weeks I dusted the insecticide on soldiers and civilians, breathing the fog of white dust for several hours each day. The body lice were killed, and the DDT persisted long enough to kill young lice when they emerged from the eggs... Fortunately, no human beings have ever been harmed by DDT."
The Sierra Club and the rest of the Enviro-Statists have never apologized for the tens of millions of needless deaths caused by their genocidal policies. Because, like Graber, the extremists seek the eradication of the human cancer.
Because that is the religion of environmentalism: and global warming is no different.
The Enviro-Statist seeks to destroy our economy and our way of life.
These are people that do not care about the misery they spread. They are doing this to control mankind and make humans poorer... because they believe you and I are cancers.
If there is global warming, humans have absolutely no control over it. The sun is a massive fireball, constantly changing its output of energy, warming and cooling the Earth as it waxes and wanes. And yet our bureaucracy marches on, no matter how cold the winters, no matter how clear the evidence.
But the EPA just issued a finding to the President that states that carbon dioxide -- which can't be any more of a pollutant than oxygen or water -- is toxic! And so the Enviro-Statist continues to grab our industry by the throat to crush the economy and impoverish mankind.
They were wrong about DDT... and they're just as wrong about global warming. Or whatever the hell it is they call it these days.
Call your representatives and tell them you oppose repression in green.
Based upon Mark Levin, 3/25/2009:
"The Enviro-Statist poses as a defender of clean air, clear water, penguins, seals, polar bears, glaciers, the poor, the Third World, and humanity itself... But he is already responsible for the death and impoverishment of tens of millions of human beings in the undeveloped world." -- Dr. Mark Levin, Liberty and Tyranny.
