Earth Day: 45 Years of Futility

Posted by Martin C. Fox on April 24, 2018

It may be another government failure but it sure feels good. At least there is less chance of dying from an earthday celebration than other government programs. Drug war, poverty war, culture war, terror war.

Earth day won’t kill you but it will help make you a broke(n) serf. Remember earth day when you are pricing that new car you want but can’t afford.

I do not know who put up money behind this at the beginning, but I know this: every dime spent on this has been money down the biodegradable rat hole. Earth Day has not produced any significant legislation. There is no connection between the annual celebration and, for example, the ratification of the Kyoto Accords of 1992 and again in 1997. They were never ratified. The treaty finally lapsed in 2012. The United States Senate never ratified it, because no president bothered to submit it for ratification.

In an article for The Progressive, he predicted, “The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.”

In International Wildlife (July 1975), Nigel Calder warned, “The threat of a new ice age must now stand alongside nuclear war as a likely source of wholesale death and misery for mankind.”

Earth Day, Nothing Says ‘We Care’ Like a Military Burn Pit

Posted by Martin C. Fox on April 19, 2017

The Colorado River now doesn’t even flow to the sea most years. A direct result of government sponsored damming and irrigation efforts. Your tax dollars paid for this.

There is no bigger polluter than government. The greatest environmental disasters of the last century are all pretty much either directly as a result of government action or knock on effects of government action.
