Green conspiracies! Authoritarian environmentalists dictating the very parameters of your daily life! Limits on how many children you can have?????
If those phrases keep you up at night worrying about the future, then this Heritage Foundation event is for you! Here is the description of the event
Behind the smiley-face rhetoric of “sustainability” and “conservation” – that warm and fuzzy public image that the environmental movement has cultivated for itself – resides a dark agenda. In Green Hell, Steve Milloy examines how the Greens aim to regulate your behavior, downsize your lifestyle, and invade the most intimate aspects of your personal life. He reflects on the authoritarian impulse underlying the Green crusade. Whether they’re demanding that you turn down your thermostat, stop driving your car, or engage in some other senseless act of self-denial, he argues that the Greens are envisioning a grim future for you marked by endless privation.
With apocalyptic predictions of environmental doom, the Green movement has gained influence throughout American society – from schools and local planning boards to the biggest corporations in the country. And their plans are much more ambitious than you think, says Milloy. What the Greens really seek, with increasing success, is to dictate the very parameters of your daily life – where you can live, what transportation you can use, what you can eat, and even how many children you can have
I really like the communist/fascist overtones used to characterize the green movement. Even the biggest corporations (the last bastions of civilization) have fallen under their spell!! And watch out, environmentalists want to invade every aspect of our lives.
All of this from an organization who supported the Patriot act
