Shayn Roby’s Take: Michael Crichton’s take that environmentalism is a religion is quite interesting, and actually makes sense. As a great number of people who lived during the cold war between the United States and the Soviet Union are aware, the Communist governments basically attempted to eradicate God from society and replace Him with government. Michael Crichton has said that environmentalism is a replacement religion. That case can be made because it can also be established that there is a link between modern day Socialism/ Communism and the environmental movement. In a July 2012 article at The Conservative Underground, the editor of ShaynRoby.com established that connection, as he referred to the The World at a Crossroads: Climate Change- Social Change Conference II that took place on Friday, September 30 through Monday, October 3, 2011 at Sidney Myer Asia Centre, Melbourne University in Australia in his article Ties Between Communism, Organized Labor, Islamo-Fascism, and the Cult of Climate Change.
Indeed, GREEN is the NEW RED, as even the article advertising the Climate Change-Social Conference tells us at Environment-ecology.com. In just a couple of paragraphs the website sums it all up:
“But recent events show that there is great reason for hope and inspiration, because masses of ordinary people are determined to fight for social justice and human survival, even if most governments aren’t. When peoples of the Arab world rise up and overthrow dictators; when the revolutionary government of tiny Bolivia refuses to bow down to the rich countries’ attempts to impose fake solutions to climate change; when millions of workers, students and unemployed take to the streets of Greece, France and Wisconsin saying “enough is enough”; when asylum seekers in Australia’s refugee prisons won’t stop protesting despite severe repression; and when Wikileaks reveals the moral bankruptcy of international capitalism for all to see, we know that it is possible to rescue and change our world.
The second Climate Change-Social Change conference aims to contribute towards understanding and collective action, in Australia and internationally, to urgently address the climate and social emergencies that we must overcome if humanity and the planet are to not only survive, but thrive.“
7 years ago, 7 long years ago Michael Crichton said that Environmentalism was a fundamentalist religion. In other words it was a belief based on faith not on facts with a closed mind.
Just to recap, the fossil energy industry, thanks to hydraulic fracturing, is situated to deliver us from the worst fiscal crisis since the Civil War, when greenback were printed to make up for the lack of investor interest in American debt.
And a report last year confirmed what I’ve been saying for three years now: There’s enough fossil energy available domestically for the United States to not just be energy independent, but for the U.S. to be the great exporter of energy for the world.
“Shale oil (light tight oil) is rapidly emerging as a significant and relatively low cost new unconventional resource in the US,” writes PWC in its February, 2013 report Shale oil: the next…
