The Real Agenda Behind Climate Change and Earth Day

In recognition of Earth Day, there is an excellent article in the BBC News today which reveals the real agenda behind the global warming movement, which is the abolishment of capitalism.

At a UN meeting on the rights of indigenous people, where the socialist president of Bolivia, Evo Morales was the keynote speaker this transpired:

"The forum’s theme is the global impact of climate change on native people. Mr Morales gave the keynote address at the opening of the seventh session of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues. As a descendent of the Aymara people, he is Bolivia’s first indigenous president.

Bolivia’s left-wing president said unbridled industrial development was responsible for the pillaging of natural resources. Speaking through an interpreter at the UN headquarters in New York, he had this uncompromising message: "If we want to save our planet earth, to save life, to save mankind, we have a duty to put an end to the capitalist system."

There you have it, all wrapped up in a few words from the mouth of a climate change believer. It has nothing to do with saving the planet or cleaning up the environment, that is just the guise under which the movement is sold to it’s gullible followers. It is all about government controlling more and more of our lives. Capitalism and industrial development are evil and must be stopped.

In fact, the exact opposite of what Mr. Morales said is the truth. Two years ago there was a report from the Heartland Institute which said this:

"Contrary to the slogans of demonstrators throughout the world, the nations that have the best track records on environmental protection and improvement are those with the highest amount of free-market capitalism.

Nations with the freest economic systems are the ones whose citizens can afford the luxury of protecting their environments. Conversely, persons living in command-and-control economies barely surviving on life’s necessities of food, clothing, and shelter use their natural resources to the absolute limit.

Beware the individual, group, or organization that relentlessly attacks the free enterprise system, bashes big business, and bashes corporations. Too often their real agenda is power–power to remake the economic and social systems to suit their own command-and-control goals, not to serve the public good as they so loudly proclaim."

So what should be the conservative response to Earth Day? How about defending free market principles and property rights. That seems to have worked pretty well for about 230 years now.
