The Human Disease

What is difficult for many to understand is how radical the enviromentalist has become.  We assume they merely want reforms to safeguard against pollution, to make the enviroment safer for humans.  In fact, radicals in the movement want to make the enviroment safe from humans. They want to prevent economic progress because they see it fundamentally as an assault on Mother Earth, whom they regard as a living entity.  I spoke with an oceanography not long ago who lamented that conversion to natural gas has enable the U.S. to reach its emissions quote under Kyoto without having to enact any draconian policies. The point to him was not to achieve this goal, but to decrease our use of fuel, period.  Anyway, check out this article by Wesley Smith on the mentality behind this movement:
