Letter: Environmentalists

To the Editor:

The Associated Press and NBC News staff recently reported that the “relentless, weather-gone crazy type of heat that blistered the U.S. last summer is so rare that it can’t be anything but man-made global warming.” This statement is pure global warming hype gone crazy. Consider that James lovelock, the guru of global warming hysteria who predicted the death of billions of humans due to global warming, admits now that he was an alarmist and is debunking the entire cabal. Lovelock and forty-nine others from NASA have stated that the idea that human action is responsible for climate change is not credible. Lovelock went further and stated that the modern green movement has become a religion that uses guilt to gain support. I will describe the movement as out of control and a threat to our independence and economic freedom.

Environmental extremists and some media, however, continue to posit the ludicrous idea that “global warming” and its first cousin “rising sea levels” are human inspired.  Global temperatures and sea levels have been ever-changing for over twenty-one thousand years. The reasons are clear: variations of solar output, changes in the earth’s orbit and continental drift. Carbon Dioxide does not drive changes in the climate-nature does. Moreover, the deified expert on sea levels, Swedish geologist and physicist, Niles-Axel Morner , recently stated that all this jabber about rising sea levels is a “colossal scare story.” Meanwhile, there have been tens of billions of tax-payer dollars spent and over-reaching regulations enforced to combat “The Hoax.”

Rising sea level hysteria is predicated on global warming hysteria. Both are outrageous fallacies. Did you know that the environmental satellite, Envisat, shows no rising sea levels in the past four years? Yet, environmental activists along with some of our government leaders continue to use the first cousin myths to gain control through regulations, land acquisition and taxes. I wonder, do these environmentalist gone crazy, who have outstripped the reasoned environmentalist of the past, truly believe that carbon emissions interfere with the cycles of nature? It is audacious to think that some of us, including a hefty number of scientists (whose numbers are shrinking fast) believe that humans, tinier than pygmy marmosets in the scheme of things, have a twit to do with global warming and cooling or sea level rise and fall. The hubris here is mind boggling.

So what drives all the hysteria? The engine driving the bad science being foisted on us is plain and simple lust for authority and greed. Environmentalists have been gobbling-up land with regulations based on bad science and greed for years. Also consider the fact that if we get rid of fossil fuel by making it non-competitive, radical environmentalist, with their sketchy green technology, are poised to sachet in to take unprecedented  control over private property and pocket billions of more dollars. Global warming hype is a cash cow; consider Al Gore who has become wealthy beyond belief from carbon-credits. The bureaucrats get rich with power and money while the rest of us suffer from debilitating taxes and arbitrary intervention.

Make no mistake, radical environmentalist are messing around with property rights right here in Connecticut. Earlier in the year, the environmental committee brought forth the Strategic Retreat Bill (HB5128). Recognizing that the bill seriously threatened property rights, there was considerable push-back by concerned citizens. The bill was then renamed the “Rising Seas Bill.” Representative Phil Miller, vice chair of the environmental committee, admitted to the New Haven Register that in the new bill (passed late at night and after the deadline set by our constitution) was tweaked to make the language more palatable. Huh! Do these environmental extremist think that changing the code words faster than the weather changes the facts?

Enough is enough. Modern environmentalists have shot way past stewardship and it is up to the citizens of this great country to elect leaders who understand that “global warming” and “rising sea levels” are the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on the human community and that private property is the most important guarantee of our Freedoms.
