The thing most people don’t “get” is that the environmental movement is relentless in the spreading of its lies. It never stops and it takes all forms of action, all intended to indoctrinate a younger generation and advance its agenda with an older one.
Take, for example, the plans for April Fool’s Day by the Energy Action Coalition, Rising Tide Network, and Rainforest Action Network. They have come together to sponsor “Fossil Fools Day.”
It is described as “an international day of protest focused on climate change and energy issues.” You may have noticed by now that the Greens only rarely refer to “global warming” any more. The reason for this is the way it is becoming increasingly difficult to convince anyone the Earth is warming when it is subjected to huge blizzards like those that occurred in China or the snow that fell in parts of South America where it hasn’t happened for decades.
The “Fossil Fuels”event will include not only bike rides and “green job rallies”, but “protests and civil disobedience at power plants, energy companies, urban sprawl developers, Bank of America mass account closures," and presumably a host of things that go beyond free speech and will likely involve vandalism or worse.
These events are planned for “over 100 locations throughout the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.”
You need to seriously contemplate what is being protested here: electricity, housing and office developments, and transportation fuels among other horrors of modern civilization. In other words, everything a modern society needs to provide for the welfare of its population and its economy.
Take away energy resources and these Fossil Fools protesters are quite literally in the dark. Take away oil, natural gas, and coal, and we are all back to an era when the only fuel was wood!
The news release I received said the reason for Fossil Fools Day was that, “Leading climate scientists warn that dramatic reductions in greenhouse gas emissions must begin immediately to avoid catastrophic climate shifts…”
Is this message getting a little “old” for you?
It is for lots of people, even if they are unaware that the main culprit that environmentalists keep citing among greenhouse gases is carbon dioxide. CO2 represents 0.038% of the Earth’s atmosphere. It has next to nothing to do with the climate. As for scientists, several hundred got together in New York in early March to hold a two-day conference debunking the global warming lies.
The Fossil Fuel protesters might was well complain about the Sun, clouds, oceans, or volcanic activity which the real drivers of the Earth’s climate. They won’t, of course, because to do so would make them look completely idiotic.
So the climate change/global warming propaganda campaign goes on. The victims are a new generation too young to know the truth and the rest of us who must continue to point out what these Green barbarians are doing to advance this greatest of modern hoaxes.
