Time to ban Greenpeace and give its riches to the poor

From The Viscount Monckton of Brenchley

The environmental movement – or, rather, the Marxist, anti-capitalist, pro-poverty, anti-Western threat to our liberty, democracy, prosperity, and security – should now be made illegal. Its increasingly desperate lies are causing real, serious harm. People are starving in their millions as a direct result of the doubling of world food prices caused by the misuse of land that once grew food for people that need it and now grows biofuels for clunkers that don’t. The environmental movement has the blood of these starving millions on its hands. It doesn’t care. It is now stepping up its ever-more-blatant campaign to propagandize and indoctrinate children and set them against their parents.

Greenpeace, whose genuinely environmentally-concerned founders left it when the Marxist entryists muscled in and took it over, has just issued a repellent advertisement showing a thuggish, surly, smutty-faced kid saying –

“The scientific community released a report that proves beyond a doubt that the Earth is getting warmer. This global warming is caused by things you grown-ups do, and by the things you don’t do. If drastic measures aren’t taken soon, by the time I grow up there won’t be any fish left in the sea; rain-forests and clean air will be a thing of the past; polar ice-caps will be gone; oceans will rise; entire countries will disappear; life will change in ways you can’t even imagine. There could be famine, worldwide epidemics, life expectancy will be lower. And we’re not just talking about the future: we’re talking about my future.

“But this is no surprise. You adults have known about this for years and, though you could have done something about it, you haven’t. You can say, ‘It’s not my problem”. You can say, ‘I won’t be around in 50 years.’ But from now on you can’t say, ‘I didn’t know.’ Starting today, the lines are drawn. You have to choose sides. Either you’re for my future, or you’re against it; you’re a friend or you’re an enemy. I may just be a kid today, but tomorrow I will be different. This is the last time I’ll be talking to you adults. You had your chance to fix this problem: now we have ours. We won’t be cute; we won’t be patronized; we will not be denied our future.”

Here’s the scientifically-correct version, to be spoken by a well-scrubbed little angel with a sad, gentle smile –

“The political community decided by show of hands that there’s a 90% chance that most of the past half-century’s global warming is caused by things you grown-ups do. The scientific community increasingly disagrees. In your generation, measured changes in cloud cover caused five times as much warming as CO2. If drastic measures aren’t taken soon, by the time I grow up even more millions of people in poor nations will starve because the misuse of food-growing land for biofuels has doubled world food prices. Global warming, whatever causes it, has no effect on fish or rain-forests or air quality; polar ice-caps will still be here; oceans will rise no faster; no countries will disappear; crop yields will improve; epidemics will be fewer; we will live longer than you. Warmer is better. Life will change in ways you can’t even imagine, but not because of global warming.

“Starting today, the lines are drawn. You have to choose sides. Either you’re for rational science, or you’re against it. I may be a kid today, and tomorrow I’ll still be a kid. Even so, I can smell b*llsh*t when I hear it. This is the last time I’ll pay any attention to the hate-filled, malevolent, anti-capitalist propagandists at Greenpeace. When I grow up, I’m going to outlaw environmentalism, confiscate its vast wealth, and give the money to the poor people its mad, bad policies have ruined. We will not deny them their future.”

If anyone sees the lying, Greenpeace version of this advert screened in Britain or any other nation where lies in advertising are unlawful, please let me know and I shall arrange for Greenpeace to be prosecuted.

Talking of adverts, do visit our good friends at www.globalwarmingheartland.org and watch the hilarious advert for Horner & Horner, Attorneys-at-Law, who offer to sue if your child is suffering from Global Warming Alarmism. The ad was made by Chris Horner, the Environment Fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute. It’s a hoot. Enjoy!
