Rachel Marsden Lays Down the Smack on the Ecofascists
Outstanding read from columnist Rachel Marsden on the ecofascist scheming at the Durban, South Africa “Environmental Summit”:
Global leaders are set to meet in Durban, South Africa, from November 28th until December 9th, in an attempt to figure out how to continue their global fight against “climate change” when the first Kyoto Protocol commitment period ends in 2012. As someone currently sitting here in the dark with the heat off, perhaps they’d permit me the temporary moral authority to offer a few suggestions for their agenda.
* Don’t waste any time fiddling with the planet’s thermostat. So the big achievement of the previous summit in Cancun was agreeing that the Earth’s temperature must not be permitted to increase by 2 percent? Look, I’ve been in European gyms with air conditioning that can’t even be controlled within the space of a few thousand square feet, despite regular intervention by head-scratching specialists. Usually the excuse is that the “ceiling is too high”. Well guess what, fools? The Earth’s ceiling is really, really high. Give it up already and move on to something you can realistically control.
* Nuclear energy is the future. Nuclear energy: good. Nuclear bomb: bad. It’s that simple. Now can we move on to a less silly debate? Oh, you say you’re worried about a nuclear energy facility going all Chernobyl on you? While you’re at it, why don’t you also avoid getting your hair cut for fear the hairdresser will stab you in the eye with the scissors while trimming your bangs? The odds are about the same for both. Great Britain has already found out what happens when nuclear is replaced by much dirtier coal: the prices go up and no one is any happier. Speaking of which…
* Imposing green alternatives almost always results in dirtier ones. For example, when I go to the supermarket and am told the plastic bags cost money, it isn’t ever going to force me to carry my own bags around. I’ll always pay the extra money and tolerate the cashier’s dirty looks in exchange for the Earth-murdering plastic bags, which I will then recycle as garbage bags at home before throwing them in the trash where they will then hopefully be recycled by a pigeon who will recoup them from the dump and use them in a nest or maybe even as a stylish necklace. The day enviro-fascists succeed in removing those bags from stores and I’m expected to carry my own, I will then rely on grocery delivery – meaning a gas-guzzling truck will deliver my groceries and someone will carry them to my door in bags or boxes.

This is how everyone on the right should be writing about the ecowackos. No political correctness, no holds barred, just slam the greeniacs for the sick, twisted totalitarians that they are. Marsden is cute, laid back, and has a savage pen. Keep an eye on her in the future, she could be an up-and-comer. Speaking of which, more coming forth on Climategate II later this week. Stay tuned.
