In an earlier critique of environmentalism, I wrote this: 1. "What the take-away? Environmentalists view mankind as a virus, a disease that must be eradicated. In 2011, [Paul] Ehrlichs wife wrote a piece in the LATimes, comparing humanity to cancer: Perpetual growth is the creed of a cancer cell, not a sustainable human society. Overpopulation: Perpetual growth is the creed of a cancer cell, not a sustainable human society - Los Angeles Times a. Gee .Ill bet these folks would be in favor of a President who favored infanticide. And thats just what we have." And, viola...what rabbit pops out of the cosmic rabbit hole to verify the above? 2. "Sir David Frederick Attenborough is a British broadcaster and naturalist. His career as the face and voice of natural history programmes has endured for 60 years. He is best known for writing and presenting the nine Life series, in conjunction with the BBC Natural History Unit, which collectively form a comprehensive survey of all life on the planet." David Attenborough - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia And...he spills the beans....today: 3. "BBC Legend David Attenborough Labels People a 'Plague' 4. National TV treasure David Attenborough has turned prophet of doom by calling humanity "a plague." He warned in the latest issue of The Radio Times that mother nature shall unleash catasphrophic disasters unless the human race changed its behaviour to slow down population growth. 5. "We are a plague on the earth," warned the presenter of BBC documentary series such as Africa. "It's coming home to roost in the next 50 years or so. It's not just climate change, its sheer space, places to grow food for this enormous horde." 6. "Either we limit our population growth or the natural world will do it for us and the natural world is doing it for us right now," said Attenborough." BBC Legend David Attenborough Labels People a 'Plague' - IBTimes UK A warning: Mother Earth Gaia will get you! Need context for this lunacy? Let me reprise the following: While the intellectual father of environmentalism is the philosopher Hegel, who posited two aspects that make ecology possible: a) the idea of the oneness of everything, and b) the superiority of the collective as compared to the individual (a very German concept!). But the emotional daddy is none other than Thomas Malthus. And Liberals are nothing, if not emotional. a. Malthus originated the view that the food production of the world would increase arithmetically (1-2-3- ), while the human population would increase geometrically (1-2-4-8 ). Conclusion: mass starvation and epidemics. Sounds environmental already, doesnt it? b. Malthus passed on in1834- yet his view continues in the hearts and minds of Progressives, today, who have expanded the vision to pollution and environmental damage. c. BTW Malthus has been proven wrong over and over, based on agricultural advances, and technological innovation. Progressive environmentalists. They favor the deaths of human being.
