Green Alarmism


"Green Alarmism does not derive from science. It comes from a religion, the faux pagan worship of Gaia, the earth goddess. She is angry and must be propitiated by the sacrifice of human babies. The white liberals who are votaries of this religion have chosen brown and black babies to be the victims of the rituals of "population control", "zero population growth" and "reproductive choice".

"Why has this bizarre cult arisen among what are supposed to be our most intelligent and skeptical class?

"First we must observe the collapse of Christian belief in this class.

"They are all Marxists now, not industrial grade Stalinists, but cultural Marxists theorized by Adorno, and Gramisci, and the French lumpen-philosopes such as Foucault and Derrida. But, even those variants of Marxism demands atheism.

"Also atheism, especially, the nasty anti-intellectual atheism of Dawkins et. al., allows them to indulge their favorite passion -- Contempt for the unwashed masses of Americans -- the obese bitter clingers who inhabit fly-over country and cling to their guns and religion.

"Having chosen atheism does not mean that they believe nothing. As Umberto Eco wrote:

"G K Chesterton is often credited with observing: "When a man ceases to believe in God, he doesn't believe in nothing. He believes in anything." Whoever said it - he was right. We are supposed to live in a sceptical age. In fact, we live in an age of outrageous credulity.

"The "death of God", or at least the dying of the Christian God, has been accompanied by the birth of a plethora of new idols. They have multiplied like bacteria on the corpse of the Christian Church ..."

This is exactly right. The "carbon" scare is a religion, no more and no less. Michael Crichton nailed it:

Smokey, excellent article. I would only add, in Crichton's first sentence, right after his word 'distinguishing,' the words 'and publicly accepting.'
The liars and cheats in academia and media know how and why they've concealed the truth.

I knew the Chrichton speech. I had downlaoded it several years ago from his web site.

The poor $0B died a few years ago and his website is now run by suits. Predictably, they have purged it of all of his speeches about environmentalism and global warming, which were pretty scathing.

Environmentalism is nothing but animism, the worship of trees, streams, mountains etc. Animism is the religion of stone age New Guinea natives and modern yuppies.
