Thread for failed catastrophic environmental predictions

Fascism comes in green as well as brown. Prior to 1974 the environmentalists were all eugenicists and Malthusians. After 1974 the main champions of the "environment" were Thatcherites, George HW Bush, Brian Mulroney and Helmut Kohl.

Thread for failed catastrophic environmental predictions

Post by Gemini »

You read it!

Post em here. I'll start
Paul Erhlich became a sensation in the 1960s and 1970s with his “The Population Bomb” in which he advocated a chilling set of eugenics including putting sterilising agents in the water supply.

Early editions of the book started with

“The battle to feed all of humanity is over. In the 1970s hundreds of millions of people will starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now.” (Paul Erhlich, The Population Bomb, 1968)

Legislation for abortion and sex education should be expanded, according to Erhlich.

The Population Bomb was written at the suggestion of David Brower. The executive director of the Sierra Club, an environmental organisation founded in 1892, by bourgeois parasites.

“Some maybe slow motion disasters like people getting more and more hungry, or catastrophic disasters because the more people you have the greater the chance of some weird virus transferring from animal to human populations, there could be a vast die-off.” […]

“It’s hard to think of anything that will pop up and save us. I hope something will but it really will be a miracle.””Paul Ehrlich (2012)

Not totally surprising considering in Population Bomb he compared humans to cancer

A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cells; the population explosion is an uncontrolled multiplication of people … We must shift our efforts from treatment of the symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer… – (Paul Ehrlich, ‘The Population Bomb’ (Ballantine Books 1968) pg. xi, pg. 166 )

Population/Environment Balance* paid for a full-page advertisement in leading newspapers, signed by such dignitaries as author Isaac Asimov, presidential adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, author Malcolm Cowley, ecologist Paul Ehrlich, editor Clifton Fadiman, oilman ] . Paul Getty, Time Inc. executive Henry Luce III, poet Archibald Macleish, Nobel prize winner Albert SzentGyorgyi, Reader's Digest founder DeWitt Wallace, U.A.W President Leonard Woodcock, and many others, saying: The world as we know it will likely be ruined before the year 2000 and the reason for this will be its inhabitants' failure to comprehend two facts. These facts are 1. World food production cannot keep pace with the galloping growth of population. 2. "Family planning" cannot and will not, in the foreseeable future, check this runaway growth.

The disgraceful episode of banning DDT by the liar and fraud Rachel Carson

Resulted in probably 50 million dead people. Mostly women and children.
The Mother of the Environmental movement was Rachel Carson. Her pathological lies resulted in the banning of DDT due to her fraudulent book, Silent Spring. Published 5 years before the first earth day Carson would wreck unbelievable havoc on peoples lives. They would not be fully uncovered until the early 2000s in J Gordon Edwards, DDT: A Case Study In Scientific Fraud. (Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, Volume 9, Number 3, Fall 2004).

The pathological liar Rachel Carson would be exposed eventually but not before an enormous pound of flesh was exacted from humanity.

The World Health Organisation would not resume spraying of DDT until 2006. Those fifty years of the DDT ban have cost humanity immensely, killing millions of people and condemning many millions more to a lifetime suffering and ill health.

“DDT provides the most effective, cheapest and safest means of eradicating disease-spreading mosquitoes, but its use has been virtually banned since 1972 when a EPA decision was based more on Rachael Carson’s book “Silent Spring” than on sound science.”(WSJ, DDT Hysteria Has Killed Millions of People, 19 Nov 2005)

J Gordon Edwards put his money where his mouth was and as a popular trick in his lectures, would eat a full mouthful of DDT right out the can to prove how non-carcinogenic it was, even to humans and even at such doses. Edwards died at the ripe age of 84, almost a full 10 years higher than the average life expectancy of an Ohio resident.

To cut a long story short Rachel Carson lied about almost everything in her book Silent Spring which was used to justify the banning of DDT which had all but eradicated malaria from developing nations. Leaving millions of mostly women and children to die. The WHO would overturn the ban on DDT in 2006 and resume DDT spraying.

Michael Crichton expressed this outrage succinctly enough

“I can tell you that DDT is not a carcinogen and did not cause birds to die and should never have been banned. I can tell you that the people who banned it knew that it wasn’t carcinogenic and banned it anyway. I can tell you that the DDT ban has caused the deaths of tens of millions of poor people, mostly children, whose deaths are directly attributable to a callous, technologically advanced western society that promoted the new cause of environmentalism by pushing a fantasy about a pesticide, and thus irrevocably harmed the third world. Banning DDT is one of the most disgraceful episodes in the twentieth century history of America. We knew better, and we did it anyway, and we let people around the world die and didn’t give a damn.”(Michael Crichton, Crichton: Environmentalism is a religion, 15 Sept 2003)

What more is there to say? Another “win” for Green hysteria.

Todays greens defend Carson with revolting historical revisionism and gaslighting like the below

“Rachel Carson never called for the banning of pesticides. She made this clear in every public pronouncement, repeated it in an hour-long television documentary about Silent Spring, and even testified to that effect before the US Senate. Carson never denied that there were beneficial uses of pesticides, notably in combating human diseases transmitted by insects, where she said they had not only been proven effective but were morally “necessary”.(New Scientist, Silent Spring didn’t condemn millions to death, 6 September 2012)

But what could she expect after writing the pathological lies in Silent Spring? Which in turn was promoted by every spectrum of liberal media, endless speaking engagements for Carson and ended in a very predictable ban of DDT in 1972.

New Scientist is likely right though: Silent Spring probably didn’t condemn millions to death. The plan to ban DDT probably would’ve happened one way or the other. The American imperialists just used Carson’s fraudulent book as an excuse and her as the public face of it then ostracized, silenced and demonised all those that did speak out about it.

Scientists did speak out at the time but were silenced by liberal media.

“Thomas Jukes—a British-American biologist who had been a professor of biophysics at the University of California—fought tirelessly against Carson. However, despite these interventions, the liberal establishment quickly moved to silence and ostracize any serious opposition to Carson.”(Janet G West, Rachel Carson: Whore of Babylon, 30 Nov 2023)

One in the eye for capitalism, they killed millions of mostly children, retarded the productive forces in developing nations and fulfilled the goals of the Kissinger Report/NSSM200.
