The Black Heart Of The Green Movement

Initially, the anthropogenic global warming movement held people of all political stripes who expressed a concern as to whether Mankind was responsible for the warming. This is how you get the Warmist talking point about Margaret Thatcher being a believer. But, then we started seeing that the people who were pushing AGW the hardest were on the far left, especially Progressives (nice fascists). The movement was rife with them, and what they wanted was the government, especially the central government and the United Nations, to be empowered with more and more power and control. And they have a very black heart

Fury at Bjorn Lomborg shows the black heart of green thinking

Environmentalism has always had a McCarthyite streak. It has an irrepressible instinct to hunt down, and shut down, not reds but anti-greens, anyone who dares to question eco-orthodoxy.

This is a movement that dreams of jailing those who question the science of climate change. Mark Lynas, a chief British theoretician of the nonsense idea that humanity has only a few decades left on this battered mortal coil, has fantasised about “future international criminal tribunals” at which deniers will have to “answer for their crimes”.

The British Greens have called for a purge of officialdom to get rid of anyone who doesn’t accept “the scientific consensus on climate change”. In short, all aspiring hacks and politicos should be asked: “Are you now or have you ever been a climate-change denier?”

And of course, that dreaded D-word, which is branded on everyone who refuses to bow and scrape before the altar of eco-correctness, echoes the Inquisition, when mankind was likewise divided into two camps: believers, to be left alone, and deniers, who would be hounded.

Not exactly. Cap and trade was a conservative idea. Progressives were pushing a carbon tax. Around 2008, there was a sea change in conservativism and all sense of reason when it came to global warming was abandoned. Remember the PSAs – including arch conservative Newt Gingrich telling us we needed to address global warming?

What happened? The Republicans lurched far-right in 2008, partly in response to the emotional Tea Party movement, partly in response to the 2008 Republican primary season where Ron Paul pulled everyone to crazytown, partly because of the anti-intellectual, Repub VP candidate.

Sulfur pollution emissions trading (cap and trade) was successfully instituted by Republican Prez George H.W. Bush.

So no, progressives didn’t change – conservatives abandoned rational thought.

Are there nutzoid environmentalists calling for locking up polluters? Sure. Are they influential? Not so much.

Are there anti-Muslim extremists who think Islam should be banned? Sure.

Are there ant-abortion extremists who think abortion providers should be murdered? Sure.
