The next time environmentalists and their Leftist friends talk about saving the planet “for the children” keep in mind the following quotes that display their true attitudes and intent:
“Human happiness, and certainly human fecundity, are not as important as a wild and healthy planet. I know social scientists who remind me that people are part of nature, but it isn’t true. Somewhere along the line – at about a billion years ago – we quit the contract and became a cancer. We have become a plague upon ourselves and upon the Earth. It is cosmically unlikely that the developed world will choose to end its orgy of fossil energy consumption, and the Third World its suicidal consumption of landscape. Until such time as Homo Sapiens should decide to rejoin nature, some of us can only hope for the right virus to come along.” - David Graber, Chief Scientist, National Park Service.
“Phasing out the human race will solve every problem on earth, social and environmental.” - Dave Forman, Earth First and Sierra Club director.
“People are the cause of all the problems; we have too many of them; we need to get rid of some of them, and this (ban of DDT) is as good a way as any.” - Charles Wurster, Environmental Defense Fund.
“Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialised civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?” - Maurice Strong, head of the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro and business partner of Al Gore.
“Giving society cheap, abundant energy would be the equivalent of giving an idiot child a machine gun.” - Paul Ehrlich, “An Ecologist’s Perspective on Nuclear Power”, May/June 1978 issue of Federation of American Scientists Public Issue Report.
“We can’t let other countries have the same number of cars, the same industrialization, we have in the U.S. We have to stop these Third World countries right where they are.” - Michael Oppenheimer, Princeton University and lead author of the IPCC’s Fourth Assessment Report.
No matter if the science is all phony, there are collateral environmental benefits…. climate change provides the greatest chance to bring about justice and equality in the world.” - Christine Stewart, Canadian Environment Minister, Calgary Herald 14 Dec, 1998.
This sounds like they’re more interested in eliminating your children than saving the planet for them.
