"There's no need to choose between enriching the environment and enriching people. Enrich BOTH."
"Earthcare is too important to be used as just another excuse for control freaks to impose authoritarianism."
Now, If we treated global warming as a technical problem instead of a moral outrage, we could cool the world.
Now! Back in Print: THE great Free Market Environmentalism by Terry Anderson & Donald Leal
N E W S   &   C O M M E N T S
"Global Warming has become a euphemism for a political agenda. It has become a religion run by fanatics reminiscent of the leaders of the darkest days of the Inquisition that nearly destroyed civil society only a few hundred years ago. We are not to question the great god of Global Warming. Those who do are separated from civil society and labeled as heretics. ... In 1998, The Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine (OISM) issued a petition for signature by atmospheric scientists saying there is no scientific evidence indicating that greenhouse gases cause global warming. That petition was signed by more than 17,000 scientists and leaders involved in the issue. ... The money is in global warming because itís being pushed by a political agenda that wants power. Power in Washington. Power on the international stage. Power over economic development. Power over international monetary decisions. Power over energy. In short, power over the motor of the world. Itís driven by literally thousands of large and small non-governmental organizations (NGOs) sanctioned by the United Nations, and implemented by a horde of bureaucrats, university academics and an ignorant but pliable news media. ... Taxpayers have now provided $20 billion into the scientific community for global warming work." -- Tom DeWeese

So there!

The sea temperature calculations prove that between 600AD and 1100AD temperatures were about 2įF higher than they are now. During this period, northern Europe experienced a golden age for agriculture. Greenland, now a frozen wasteland, was then a habitable Viking colony and there were vineyards in the south of England."

And in his, Patrick Michaels shows how apparently any facts at all will do to "feel certainty" about global warming. (Also see: "Challenging the Ecohype"

"News stories about the Unabomber and Timothy McVeigh broke almost simultaneously in 1995. McVeigh was hardly a philosopher (in fact he barely seemed literate) but the media did its best to expose the evil philosophy that drove him to murder. In contrast, the Unabomber presented himself as a philosopher and offered the world a massive eco-manifesto. 
Why didn't the media use this as a chance to expose the evil philosophy of radical environmentalism?"
-- GMU Economics Professor Bryan Caplan
No, unfortunately, Ted Kaczynski is only one of many murderous environmentalists
He's just not one of the more common type who try to hide their murderous agendas.
"...America's news media and largest periodicals don't have it [that tiny grain of knowledge]. They work by the T&P (trust and parrot) method. They may differ in whom to trust and parrot; but they share a common inability to evaluate. They will find two opposing viewpoints and manufacture a 'controversy;' for they think objectivity lies halfway between the truth and a lie (or worse, between two lies)." -- introduction to the Access to Energy Newsletter

If it were true that a heavy concentration of industry is destructive to human life, one would find life expectancy declining in the more advanced countries. But it has been rising steadily. Here are the figures on life expectancy in the United States: 

1900 - 47.3 years 
1920 - 53 years 
1940 - 60 years 
1968 - 70.2 years (the latest figures compiled [as of January 1971]) 

"Anyone over 30 years of age today, give a silent 'Thank you' to the nearest, grimiest, sootiest smokestacks you can find." -- Ayn Rand, "The Anti-Industrial Revolution," an essay included in the book, Return of the Primitive: the Anti-Industrial Revolution

  Check out the surprising results of some eye-opening book polls HERE.

"Clinton realized that America could not economically afford the Protocol Gore negotiated. The Clinton-Gore Energy Department found Kyoto would lead to $400 billion a year in lost output. ... Gore tries to throw Enron on the back of the current administration. But it was Enron Board Chairman Kenneth Lay who sold Clinton-Gore on Kyoto's cap and trade system. Gore, Clinton, and Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin met with Lay on Aug. 7, 1997 to go over goals and procedures for the Kyoto session. ... The corporate smoking memo here was not that from an ExxonMobil adviser to oppose Dr. Watson, but the Enron internal memo saying Kyoto 'would do more to promote Enron's business than almost any other regulatory initiative'." -- Ken Adelman HERE.
"Being a politician means never having to say you're sorry.  You don't have to say, 'I never should have voted to subsidize that ridiculous Enron project in India.'  ... After all, they're greedy businessmen and you're a selfless public servant."-- Harry Browne
"It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions  in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong." -- Thomas Sowell
Enron, of course, is exactly the kind of corporation which could not exist in pure capitalism.  As a creature, in effect, of politicians, it was deliberately converted from a small pipeline company into an international conglomerate by conniving scoundrels who designed it from the beginning to use the power of their politician-friends to give it government contracts, subsidies, monopoly powers, and favorable regulations to force prospective customers to do business with them, essentially at gunpoint.  Obviously, this is fascism, not capitalism.
