Earth Day is Pure BS; Let’s Fete Exploit-the-Earth Day!

April 23, 2012

The viral video above by Free Market America claims the primitive environmental agenda has “been infected by extremism” and has “become an economic suicide pact.” Very true! So, to mark and celebrate our human existence, let’s fete ‘Exploit-the-Earth Day instead of supporting the environmentalists’ propaganda ‘Earth Day”.

According to Craig Biddle of The Objective Standard:

Environmentalism rejects the basic moral premise of capitalism—the idea that people should be free to act on their judgment—because it rejects a more fundamental idea on which capitalism rests: the idea that the requirements of human life constitute the standard of moral value. While the standard of value underlying capitalism is human life (meaning, that which is necessary for human beings to live and prosper), the standard of value underlying environmentalism is nature untouched by man.

The basic principle of environmentalism is that nature (i.e., “the environment”) has intrinsic value—value in and of itself, value apart from and irrespective of the requirements of human life—and that this value must be protected from its only adversary: man. Rivers must be left free to flow unimpeded by human dams, which divert natural flows, alter natural landscapes, and disrupt wildlife habitats. Glaciers must be left free to grow or shrink according to natural causes, but any human activity that might affect their size must be prohibited. Naturally generated carbon dioxide (such as that emitted by oceans and volcanoes) and naturally generated methane (such as that emitted by swamps and termites) may contribute to the greenhouse effect, but such gasses must not be produced by man. The globe may warm or cool naturally (e.g., via increases or decreases in sunspot activity), but man must not do anything to affect its temperature.

In short, according to environmentalism, if nature affects nature, the effect is good; if man affects nature, the effect is evil.

So, during the Earth Day, instead of supporting primitivism and industrial guilt, let’s celebrate ‘Exploit-the-Earth Day’ by keeping the lights on and shining them on environmentalism BS.
