All across America, Canada and elsewhere, environmentalists are planning. They are planning to save every eco-system, glacier, wetland, mountain, all the oceans, lakes, rivers, streams, dry washes, gullies, prairies deserts and the so-called endangered species that inhabit these places, at your expense. They are planning to drive you out of the rural areas and plant your sorry little behinds in 25-story apartment buildings in large cities where you will be forced to walk, take your bike, or mass transit to work. They don't care how much their planning costs. They don’t care how much the implementation of their plans cost and they don’t care that their environmental premises are absurd and without merit.

They are planning to get you out of your cars by making sure that the price of gas stays high. (It’s low now but it won’t remain low under the environmentalist’s alternative energy plan.) The environmentalists don’t want to pay for any new roads to handle the increased car and truck traffic that comes from having babies and the affects of natural migration. To drain your wallets further they force you to take inefficient, but very expensive mass transit, to pander to the myopic and “green” indoctrinated city folk that keep the environmental politicians in power. They inhibit drilling for new crude oil or natural gas sources. They won’t allow new power plants, pipelines and refineries to be built. Obama just killed the XL pipeline ….. for good.

With their incessant planning and their Made-as-Instructed (MAI), Best-Available-Science (BAS) they have lobbied government for decades and have convinced them to buy into their specific "green" agenda to drive man into the dark ages, or drive them insane like rats in a cage in large cities, in the endless pursuit of saving "their" planet. We ask, where is the most crime? Answer, big cities where environmentalists and government want us to live! Big cities are in. Suburban living is severely restricted if not outlawed altogether and rural living is out. It is so much easier to control people when they live in big cities. Dictators have known that for millennia.

Name any eco-system, rural area, wetland, glacier, prairie, ocean, sound, river, lake, stream, dry wash, gully, desert, or estuary and you will find a group of environmentalists, along with compliant scientists that are environmentally brainwashed and indoctrinated in our liberal colleges, planning its management. They do not think in terms of freedom, liberty, individual and property rights, free markets, free choice, capitalism, or constitutional safeguards like the Fifth Amendment. They only think of the survival and management of the natural system they are managing at the time and they especially think about their very generous “green” paycheck. They don’t think in terms of cost to the public for their planning and management.

As part of their planning, they are planning every aspect of your lives as well, in order to integrate your life with the highest of all of their priorities, saving the planet from the scourges of mankind. They only see in one color, "green". But think of their "green" as the color of a slimy slug. Think of their "green" as the color of stomach bile. Because that will be what is crawling all over and eating away at your freedom, liberty and property rights when their plans are implemented by a sympathetic government at the point of a gun.

Now when these alleged all-wise environmental go-gooders get together with their scientist partners in crime, there is no part of your life that is safe. At the end of this month these same people will be meeting in Paris, France to get all of the nations to implement draconian CO2 emission limits that will only affect Americans but will have little or no effect on limiting CO2 in the atmosphere. It isn’t even settled science that CO2 has any affect whatsoever on climate. But the Sun, volcanoes and water vapor have a huge effect.

Your money, your land and your freedom are in extreme peril when the environmentalists sit down at their "green" table and start planning. And they have three very willing accomplices; academia, the print and electronic news media and the biggest and most corrupt of all accomplices, the government.

These environmental planners have infiltrated every level of government, our K-12 public schools and our liberal colleges. On the outside of government, they plan and then turn their plans over to the government, which then willingly rubber-stamps them. They sue in liberal courts to get favorable "green" decisions that then have the force of law. Judges, attorneys, juries and environmental experts have all been bought, sold and initiated into the "green" club that colors every judicial decree “green.” Violate the rules of the "green' club and you will be crucified on the bench of these corrupt judges and the attorneys and juries that have absorbed all the "green" dictates like a porous sponge.

You say you don't believe us! Then we encourage you to take a gander at a couple of these radical environmental planner websites, at the following links. You won't believe it.

"The Puget Sound Partnership"

"The Puget Sound Regional Council"

This represents just two agencies in just one geographic area. These planning groups are everywhere, funded with your tax dollars. The above two don't include the thousands of other government and non-governmental environmental groups and agencies that are planning everything down to the last detail of where you live, work, play, your mode of transportation and the type of paper in your toilet paper. These groups and the government that aids and abets them are your enemy and they are traitors to liberty and American sovereignty.

Environmentalists and radical environmentalism have brought America to its knees. They have stripped us of our national pride, our strength, our ingenuity, our creativity and our generosity. They have sucked away the lifeblood of our economy by getting government to put any source of energy that produces CO2, or that might harm the environment, off limits. They have turned us into a third-world country in just a few decades, especially with the help of this half green, half brown president. If the environmentalists had their way, they would return us to living off the land like savages in order to save Mother Earth.

Meanwhile, almost every other major country on Earth is buying up, or confiscating by force, crude oil, minerals and other raw materials. As a result we now pay more for everything, including our gasoline and our food. Much more. As the world resources are locked up by other countries, Americans are being forced to pay more for our minerals and raw materials. We ship iron ore to Japan so that they can make the steel that they send back to America. America doesn’t make steel any more. And the direct culprit is the cult of environmentalism and the enforcer of that cult is government, with a gun to your head if you don't comply.

Environmentalists and their co-conspirators have forced the rural landowners of America to bear almost the entire burden of environmental protection, while the city folk get off virtually scot-free. The city folk elect the legislators and lawmakers that continue the destruction of a free America with social justice and environmental extremism because they have been sold "green" as Motherhood, Apple Pie and Chevrolet.

While we sit on our hands, the environmentalists and their willing accomplices plan. While we try to fight one of their environmental insanities, they are planning another insanity for us to fight just around the corner. They have divided us so that we are working against each other.

They use MAI-BAS so-called science, couched in propaganda, lies and distortions to deceive us. They use the environmental law to enslave us. They use international pressure from Europe and the United Nations to break us down and corrupt our laws. They use our emotion and perceived guilt against us. They pit naive, brainwashed city dwellers against independent thinking rural landowners. Since there are more city dwellers, the rural landowners are totally disenfranchised from the political process and must “eat” whatever the city voters hand them through their rapid environmental legislators and rule makers.

Never have so many been so duped by a dirty little evil that transcends anything that Mother Nature can throw at us. Never have so many been conned by an ideology that is camouflaged in gentle sounding names and wrapped in cult-like religious phrases that "touch" our hearts, but leave our minds numb and unthinking and our wallets empty.

All of this would be reasonably understandable for a backward culture steeped in tribalism. If this grand scheme to enslave an entire country occurred 2,000 years ago, when the average individual's point of reference included a hut and just enough food on the table to maintain survival, albeit a poor one, it might be excused. But it is inexcusable for an educated civilization that exists in America today, or any advanced and educated country. We have to ask, are people really this dumb? The answer is …. YES!

As the "green" chains lock forever around your wrists, ankles and necks and you find yourself back in the land of serfdom, you may well ask, how did this happen? If you do not know how it happened, you are the problem. If you value freedom and liberty so little and the environment and security so much, you were the ones that closed the lock on the chains and threw the key away. You did it to yourselves and you only have your self to blame.

So when you hear of environmentalists planning and scientists being invited to the sessions and conferences, you had better hide your wallet and put a moat around your land. Both are in grave peril. If the environmentalists get their way and they are, both will cease to exist.
