The flower power children in the 1960′s were part of the “Peace, not War” movement sponsored by the Communist Party USA and the Communist Party in the USSR (now Russia). Out of this sprung the idea that it was easier to destroy the United States from within rather then through war, as the United States military always wins the wars. (Lyndon Johnson set us on a path to defeat with limiting the Vietnam war rather than just going in, actually winning the war victoriously, freeing the people from Communism and then set up them for self sufficiency.)
This inside attack focused on the environment. No one (even conservatives, unlike the liberal spin) wants dirty air and polluted water, so the environmental movement started on Global Cooling as the main weapon.
These “environmentalists”, and I use the term very loosely, claimed the Earth was cooling and we would have a full-blown Ice Age by 2000. The perceived cause was mankind. You see, with all the wood burning stoves in America, the soot particles were in the air and blocking some of the sun’s heat. An anti-wood-burning-stove movement started and some local laws were passed in some very liberal towns.
Then the environmental idiots claimed “chemicals” were “evil” and were causing bird eggs to become thin and subject to breakage. Since we could not survive with thin bird eggs, DDT was outlawed due to Rachel Carson writing and promoting the book Silent Spring in 1962.
She should be held, tried and sentenced for being the worlds most prolific mass murderer and genocidal maniac. Millions of African children today are still dying from Malaria due to the world-wide ban on DDT which was effectively used to kill the disease-spreading mosquitoes. No other chemical today has been found to efficiently kill these bugs.
The environmentalists still have control over this ban today, so the genocide continues, even though the thin egg shells were since proven to be caused by changes in diet of the birds.
Next came population control, as the environmentalists claimed people were destroying the earth and we needed to control the population before we ran out of space. This was pure bunk, but many laws were enacted to persuade people from having children. The widespread availability of abortion and Roe vs. Wade helped.
Just for grins, take all the people in the world and stand them right next to each other, front to back and side to side. They would all fit in an area the size of Jacksonville, Florida. Even better yet, divide up the world’s population and group them into 4-member families. Then give them all homes. If these homes were placed side to side and front to back, they would all fit into the state of Texas. Add roads, stores and schools and they would all fit into the States of California, Texas, Oregon and Washington.
We are not running out of space; just look out the window of a jet as you fly from coast to coast across the Fruited Plains of America. Better do it before too long, as the environmentalists will have outlawed airplanes for the common folk.
The environmentalists tried (and are still trying after all these years) to stop us from using up all the worlds oil and other resources such as natural gas, iron, wood and food. Amazingly, we still have not used up the oil. We were supposed to have run out in the 1980′s. Still we cannot drill off our coasts, but China is drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.
The environmentalists Are currently still trying to sell the Global Warming Hoax. Al Gore wishes to sell it as he owns a carbon trading company. He even buys carbon credits from himself to “offset” his extensive jet travel spreading his manure all over the world. England sued him and now requires a disclaimer to be presented to school kids if they are shown his movie.
If the world pressures the environmentalists to give up the nonsensical Global Warming and Climate Change bull, they will find another cause to try and turn the United States into a 3rd of 4th world country. They would like us living in mud huts again cooking vegetables over manure fires.
Watch and see.
