Take theClimate Science Challenge
Premise: Utopia to an envirotheist is characterized by a virulent hatred for humanity, with a goal of death for the majority of humanity. Don’t believe me? Read it for yourself:
~ “My three main goals would be to reduce human population to about 100 million worldwide, destroy the industrial infrastructure and see wilderness, with it’s full complement of species, returning throughout the world.”~ – Dave Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!
~ “We advocate biodiversity for biodiversity’s sake. It may take our extinction to set things straight.”~ – Dave Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!
~ “Human beings, as a species, have no more value than slugs.”~ – John Davis, editor of Earth First! Journal
~ “The Earth has cancer and the cancer is Man.”~ – Club of Rome, environmental think-tank, consultants to the United Nations
~ “The extinction of Homo Sapiens would mean survival for millions, if not billions, of Earth-dwelling species. Phasing out the human race will solve every problem on Earth – social and environmental.”~ – Ingrid Newkirk, PETA President
~ “A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cells; the population explosion is an uncontrolled multiplication of people. We must shift our efforts from the treatment of the symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer.”~ – Paul Ehrlich, professor, Stanford University
~ “The addition of a temporary sterilant to staple food, or to the water supply. With limited distribution of antidote chemicals, perhaps by lottery.”~ Paul Ehrlich, professor, Stanford University
~ “Good terrorists would be taking [Ebola Roaston and Ebola Zaire] so that they had microbes they could let loose on the Earth that would kill 90 percent of people.”~ – Eric Pianka, professor, University of Texas
~ “The planet is about to break out with fever, indeed it may already have, and we [human beings] are the disease. We should be at war with ourselves and our lifestyles.”~ – Thomas Lovejoy, Smithsonian Institution
~ “There exists ample authority under which population growth could be regulated…It has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.”~ – John Holdren, Obama administration Science Czar
~ “…chief executives of large fossil fuel companies to [should] be put on trial for high crimes against humanity and nature”~ – James Hansen, NASA
~ “What I would challenge you to do is to put a lot of effort into trying to see whether there’s a legal way of throwing our so-called leaders into jail because what they’re doing is a criminal act.”~ – David Suzuki, envirotheist
~ “The extinction of the human species may not only be inevitable but a good thing.”~ – Christopher Manes, Earth First!
~ “Everything we have developed over the last 100 years should be destroyed.”~ – Pentti Linkola, ecologist
~ “Global Sustainability requires the deliberate quest of poverty, reduced resource consumption and set levels of mortality control.”~ – Maurice King, professor
~ “A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.”~ – Ted Turner, billionaire envirotheist
~ “We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis…”~ – David Rockefeller, Club of Rome executive member
~ “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, U.S. National Park Services
~ “For the planet’s sake, I hope we have bird flu or some other thing that will reduce the population, because otherwise we’re doomed.”~ – Susan Blakemore, UK Guardian
~ “…every time someone dies as a result of floods in Bangladesh, an airline executive should be dragged out of his office and drowned.”~ – George Monbiot, UK Guardian
~ “When we’ve finally gotten serious about global warming, when the impacts are really hitting us and we’re in a full worldwide scramble to minimize the damage, we should have war crimes trials for these bastards [global warming dissenters] — some sort of climate Nuremberg.”~ – David Roberts, Grist Magazine
~ “My three main goals would be to reduce human population to about 100 million worldwide, destroy the industrial infrastructure and see wilderness, with it’s full complement of species, returning throughout the world.”~ – David Foreman, co-founder Earth First!
~ “Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?”~ – Maurice Strong, billionaire envirotheist
~ “Childbearing should be a punishable crime against society, unless the parents hold a government license. All potential parents should be required to use contraceptive chemicals, the government issuing antidotes to citizens chosen for childbearing.”~ – David Brower, founder Sierra Club
Conclusion: Envirotheists are mostly a combination of progressive and fascist. Essentially, their ideology is progressive-fascism.
