Celebrating Earth Day – Elephants, Wildebeasts, Rainforests, Oh my!

Celebrating Earth Day,

Recall: Ira Einhorn, a convicted murderer, is a founder of Earth Day.
The Unabomber was an environmentalist.
Enviro-fascists want 9/10ths of the population of the earth to DIE.

For every acre of rainforest used to make life better for the third world citizens of those regions, 50 (FIFTY) acres are growing.

CHILIBRE, Panama — The land where Marta Ortega de Wing raised hundreds of pigs until 10 years ago is being overtaken by galloping jungle — palms, lizards and ants. Jungle is developing again on old holdings around Chilibre.  Instead of farming, she now shops at the supermarket and her grown children and grandchildren live in places like Panama City and New York.

These people have moved to the cities to live a richer, more prosperous life. As a result of their advancement in living standards, capitalism and humanities natural right to utilize the resources of the planet, it all works in harmony!

So quit telling them they cant use DDT to save themselves from malaria. Quit telling them they cant use chloro-flourocarbons for their refrigerators! Have compassion!

Despite the actions of a minority of extremists, now should be the time to celebrate the flourishing flora and fauna of the worlds undeveloped vastness. As nearly 93% of the United States is undeveloped, go out and enjoy some of our pristine wilderness. Hike, fish, hunt, go camping and enjoy and experience the great outdoors. There’s plenty to go around.

Do you realize we have more undeveloped land in the United States than Africa?

There are so many elephants and big game animals in private reserves today that governments are having to cull them? This is how it goes with any animal humans choose to corral, hunt and perhaps eat. They flourish! Don’t agree? Think the bovine is going extinct? How about the chicken? Want to save the animal? Hunt it and eat it.

FROM JURASSIC PARK, read by the immortal Charlton Heston.

You think man can destroy the planet? What intoxicating vanity. Let me tell you about our planet. Earth is four-and-a-half-billion-years-old. There’s been life on it for nearly that long, 3.8 billion years. Bacteria first; later the first multicellular life, then the first complex creatures in the sea, on the land. Then finally the great sweeping ages of animals, the amphibians, the dinosaurs, at last the mammals, each one enduring millions on millions of years, great dynasties of creatures rising, flourishing, dying away — all this against a background of continuous and violent upheaval. Mountain ranges thrust up, eroded away, cometary impacts, volcano eruptions, oceans rising and falling, whole continents moving, an endless, constant, violent change, colliding, buckling to make mountains over millions of years.

Earth has survived everything in its time. It will certainly survive us. If all the nuclear weapons in the world went off at once and all the plants, all the animals died and the earth was sizzling hot for a hundred thousand years, life would survive, somewhere: under the soil, frozen in Arctic ice. Sooner or later, when the planet was no longer inhospitable, life would spread again. The evolutionary process would begin again. It might take a few billion years for life to regain its present variety. Of course, it would be very different from what it is now, but the earth would survive our folly, only we would not. If the ozone layer gets thinner, ultraviolet radiation sears the earth, so what? Ultraviolet radiation is good for life. It’s powerful energy. It promotes mutation, change. Many forms of life will thrive with more UV radiation. Many others will die out.

Do you think this is the first time that’s happened? Think about oxygen. Necessary for life now, but oxygen is actually a metabolic poison, a corrosive gas, like fluorine. When oxygen was first produced as a waste product by certain plant cells some three billion years ago, it created a crisis for all other life on earth. Those plants were polluting the environment, exhaling a lethal gas. Earth eventually had an atmosphere incompatible with life. Nevertheless, life on earth took care of itself.

In the thinking of the human being a hundred years is a long time. A hundred years ago we didn’t have cars, airplanes, computers or vaccines. It was a whole different world, but to the earth, a hundred years is nothing. A million years is nothing. This planet lives and breathes on a much vaster scale. We can’t imagine its slow and powerful rhythms, and we haven’t got the humility to try. We’ve been residents here for the blink of an eye. If we’re gone tomorrow, the earth will not miss us.”
