These irrational, evil morons hate everything good, great and productive. Ayn Rand foresaw it all: The Return of the Primitive: The Anti-Industrial Revolution. Read it.
At the dawn of the climate movement, back in the 1960s, they called this environ-mentalism ‘ecology’.
Ayn Rand said:
“Ecology as a social principle . . . condemns cities, culture, industry, technology, the intellect, and advocates men’s return to “nature,” to the state of grunting sub animals digging the soil with their bare hands.”
“The dinosaur and its fellow-creatures vanished from this earth long before there were any industrialists or any men . . . . But this did not end life on earth. Contrary to the ecologists, nature does not stand still and does not maintain the kind of “equilibrium” that guarantees the survival of any particular species—least of all the survival of her greatest and most fragile product: man.””
“Now observe that in all the propaganda of the ecologists—amidst all their appeals to nature and pleas for “harmony with nature”—there is no discussion of man’s needs and the requirements of his survival. Man is treated as if he were an unnatural phenomenon. Man cannot survive in the kind of state of nature that the ecologists envision—i.e., on the level of sea urchins or polar bears . . . .
In order to survive, man has to discover and produce everything he needs, which means that he has to alter his background and adapt it to his needs. Nature has not equipped him for adapting himself to his background in the manner of animals. From the most primitive cultures to the most advanced civilizations, man has had to manufacture things; his well-being depends on his success at production. The lowest human tribe cannot survive without that alleged source of pollution: fire. It is not merely symbolic that fire was the property of the gods which Prometheus brought to man. The ecologists are the new vultures swarming to extinguish that fire.”
If anyone predicted then what the democrats are doing now, they would have been Baker acted, involuntarily institutionalized.
‘We’ve got to make sure that this happens quickly enough to beat climate change’
By: Art Moore, WND, September 14, 2022:
Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg hopes the federal government will follow California’s lead in approving a regulation that will ban the sale of new gasoline-powered vehicles.
“It’s interesting to see how the states are trying to go above and beyond what we’re doing at the federal level,” Buttigieg said in a podcast interview with KTTV-TV in Los Angeles, the Western Journal reported. Buttigieg said he’s “really interested to follow these developments, while we continue to set a national policy that’s the baseline for all of this.”
“We need to move in the direction of electric vehicles, and look, industry is already there — at least one major automaker says they’re not even planning to make gas cars past 2035 – but we’ve got to make sure that this happens quickly enough to help us be climate change,” he said.
The reference was to General Motors, which said last year it hopes to end sales of gas and diesel engine vehicles by 2035. California’s Air Resources Board followed suit in August with its approval of a regulation banning the sale of new gasoline-powered vehicles by 2035.
Buttigieg said it’s important to make sure the transition “happens affordably enough, that it’s not just wealthy people, but low-income people who are the ones who most need those gas savings if they can afford the EVs in the first place.”
Last month, however, amid a heat wave, Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom’s office urged Californians not to charge their electric cars during peak hours.
About 16% of new car sales in the Golden State are electric vehicles, which raises the question of whether or not the power grid will be able to handle load less than 13 years from now.
Further, electric vehicles – the ones that are now in production – are not “zero-emission,” as about 80% of the electricity used to charge the batteries comes from coal, natural gas and nuclear power. And there are numerous environmental and ethical costs to manufacturing the batteries.
