Report Shows Campus Sustainability Movement Restricts Debate, Harms College Finances
by the National Association of Scholars
 sub-topic» "Greens"

Sustainability: Higher Education’s New Fundamentalism shows that the sustainability movement distorts college curricula and cuts off free inquiry on important questions. The 260-page report also shows that, at a time when tuition and student debt are soaring, colleges are spending lavishly on sustainability programs.

The study shows how the sustainability movement has shut down reasoned debate on campuses by foreclosing open inquiry about climate change. (The report takes no position on global warming itself.) The report criticizes the 685 institutions that have signed the American College and University President’s Climate Commitment for demanding of students and faculty members “blind obedience” in the place of critical examination of the facts.

Rodents to be given human rights under Green party plans
by Matthew Holehouse
 sub-topic» "Greens"

Those policy proposals in full

Animal rights: Article Five of the UN Declaration on Human Rights, banning “inhuman” treatment, is extended to all sentient life forms. The same prison sentences for the murder and kidnap of humans will apply to crimes involving elephants, monkeys and whales.

Nappies: Companies that manufacture disposable nappies face higher taxes to account for landfill

Grand National: Commercial horse and dog racing to be banned

National Lottery: Payouts to be smaller, with more winners, under “progressive” system

Aid: Budget to increase to one per cent of GDP, with hospital ships serving the developing world

Education: Forest Schools, giving children a “hands-on” appreciation of trees

First, do no harm: expanding our moral code beyond religion
by Floris van den Berg
 sub-topic» "Greens"

(Editor’s Note: This is an example of a kind of writing, which is becoming commoner among those that masquerade as friends of human liberty, but in reality are the opposite. It all starts pretty well, with five good paragraphs about the evils of religion. Then there are four rocky ones, making you think “Where is this going?” Then two absolutely excellent sentences. So good, that I’ll repeat them here:

“From individual liberty—the core value of the enlightenment—it follows that everything is allowed so long as we do no harm to others. So a society in which no harm is done should be the goal.”

Fine words! But then the essay descends into a vegan eco-diatribe. The author falls into the usual greenie trap of seeking to use moral manipulation and politics to do harm – serious harm – to us human beings. After all, when we human beings eat meat, we are only behaving according to our nature – just as polar bears do when they eat baby seals. Thus the author contradicts the point of his essay. Sigh. He also seems not to understand that veganism is just as much a religion as any other.)

Environmentalists are elitists
by John Tyler
 sub-topic» "Greens"

All through human history a class of people have considered themselves better, smarter, more deserving -and thus ENTITLED TO RULE- over the great unwashed masses.

A Response to Lord Donoughue
by Fenbeagle
 sub-topic» "Greens"

The 'Greens' are not concerned about the environment, or about 'sustainability' (whatever that means), or about poverty. They clearly aren't in favour of industry or anything that has proven successful at reducing poverty and making everyones lives more comfortable, and are not particularly concerned about pollution unless it suit's them to target some with that accusation. But not others, (and never themselves.)

They sit upon the branch we all sit upon and happily busy themselves at sawing it off.

Neil deGrasse Tyson and the Metaphysical Dilemma of the Left
by Robert Tracinski
 sub-topic» "Greens"

The modern left formed as a reaction against capitalism and the Industrial Revolution. I think this reaction was driven by a deeply ingrained attitude toward morality. Practically every moral philosophy has warned against the evils of greed and self-interest—and here was an economic system that encourages and rewards those motives. You could look at this and decide that it’s necessary to re-evaluate the moral issues and come to terms with self-interest in some way. Most factions of the modern right have done so, whether they accept self-interest as a necessary evil or to make a virtue of selfishness.

But if you’re not willing to make such an accommodation, you’re going to look around, see all this heedless profit-seeking, and conclude that it must be evil in some way and it must be leading to evil consequences. So you will lend an eager ear to anyone who claims to validate your moral suspicions about capitalism.

Greens v. the poor: it's a movement of the 'haves'
by Naomi Schaefer Riley
 sub-topic» "Greens"

What could be wrong with that? Well, here’s the thing about environmentalists: They have a long history of screwing the poor.

The religion of environmentalism, you see, does everything it can to stop economic growth from happening. Preferring things to be more “natural” typically means restricting energy use, technological advancement and the progress of civilization itself.

Green Moral Exhibitionism
by James Knight
 sub-topic» "Greens"

When you look closely at the Green Party, you find that they are quite unlike normal, rationally minded people – their obsession with climate and the environment would be an astonishingly unusual thing if it were not for the fact that green obsession is one of the few remaining political identities on which one could base a party and sustain some electoral territory. Without the need for this green obsession to hold themselves together as an alternative party, what they actually subscribe to is quite bizarrely alien to the ordinary human mental constitution.

The reckless mass medication of Britain
by Robert Henderson
 sub-topic» "Greens"

There is also a moral question, namely, how much medication should be given to a patient regardless of the quality of life they can experience? The idea that living is desirable regardless of the nature of the life is difficult to sustain morally. That is particularly true of the old. I have never encountered anyone over the age of 85 whose life I have known in some detail who has been averagely happy or physically comfortable. Almost invariably by that age the body has developed some serious malady whether physical or mental. That is not to say such elderly people generally want to die. Rather, it is simply that the life being led is normally miserable at worst and unfulfilling at best. If they are loaded down with medications, many or all of which will have obnoxious side effects, this may extend their lives by a few months or years, but the patient may well feel that there is a case for saying let nature take its course if those few extra months and years will be suffered rather than enjoyed because of the side effects of medication.

Heads are breaking the law if they teach eco agenda, says Gove
by Daniel Martin
 sub-topic» "Greens"

Headteachers who brainwash children with green propaganda are breaking the law, Michael Gove has suggested.

The Education Secretary has read ‘with concern’ a report which accused ‘activist’ teaching staff of trying to turn pupils into ‘foot soldiers of the green movement’. It found the marks children were awarded in exams depended on ‘parroting’ the green agenda. And many widely-used textbooks included inaccurate examples.

The British Green Party expose their totalitarian mentality
by Robert Henderson
 sub-topic» "Greens"

This is the voice of the true fanatic, so captured by an ideology that any dissent from the “true way” becomes heresy which must be eradicated. For Bennett it is not enough to have policies implemented , only those who unreservedly support the policies can be tolerated in government even if they are not involved in implementing the policies themselves.

In short, Greens want the debate on man-made global warming to be officially over as far as the government is concerned. They belong to the one class of person who should be denied a public voice, namely the class of those who would deny a public voice to others.

Long Green

And that means that of the $7.5 million dollars donated by taxpayers all over the world, the people in the developing countries will get …


Like I said, while I bemoan the waste of resources, I see all this as good news. Any country that takes a serious look at what’s happened to the first seven plus million that was donated to the Green Climate Fund will certainly have second thoughts about giving them money.

The bull and the Borg
by Christopher Monckton
 sub-topic» "Greens"

The pretext for the Borg’s cruel attacks on farmers is Agenda 21, the U.N.’s sinister plan for global domination via environmental over-regulation.

The Borg, a universally-hated bureaucracy, are actively putting the U.N.’s nihilistic, anti-irrigation, anti-pesticide, anti-farming, anti-business, anti-environment, anti-population, anti-human, anti-capitalist, anti-Western, anti-everything Agenda 21 program into ruthless effect.

"Clean Development Mechanism" schemes drive out African villagers for "carbon offset" profits
by Ron Arnold
 sub-topic» "Greens"

Oxfam assessed NFC with puzzlement: “It has economic power, professional expertise, and close political support. It has a hands-on chief executive with local knowledge and ethical credentials. The company and its investors have clear environmental and social standards they commit to uphold, and corporate social responsibility and accountability principles are embedded at the heart of its operations.

“Given all this, how is it possible that thousands of people in affected communities have alleged that land clearances, which have taken place to make way for NFC’s operations in Uganda, have been accompanied by distress and violence, and have left many in a state of poverty?”

Ecologists Urge Government to "Move Beyond Existent Levels of Public Permission"
by Jurriaan Maessen
 sub-topic» "Greens"

The objective, according to the authors, is that these engineered “norms” must work their way into existing ones so finally environmental policies will be accepted without reserve. A sustained campaign, in other words, with government and scientists working together as to gradually create changes in behavior so environmental policies will be more easily accepted over the course of some time.

More Environmental Extremism
by Gary Jason
 sub-topic» "Greens"

A recent report out of England is a perfect illustration of the thesis that a major component of the modern environmentalist movement consists of religious worshipers of a decidedly peculiar pagan proclivity, to wit, worshipers of Thanatos, the god of death.

The New Holocaust Deniers
Environmentalists still won't admit the existence of the carnage they have created
by Robert Zubrin
 sub-topic» "Greens"

Taken together, these campaigns to deny billions of people the means to a decent existence have racked up a death toll exceeding that achieved by Hitler, Stalin, Mao, or any of the other tyrants whose crimes fill the sordid pages of human history. It is ironic that the perpetrators of this holocaust have chosen to affix the term “deniers” to those who refuse to endorse their proposal to radically expand it via a global program of mass human sacrifice for the purpose of weather control. In fact it is they, who call upon us to harden our hearts to “the inconvenient truth” that allegedly requires such suffering, who are the real new deniers; deniers not just of a past holocaust that rightfully commands our grief, but a present one, whose desperate victims still plead for our action.
