Environmentalism vs Climate Hysteria

memorials_ed_abbey

If Ed Abbey were alive now, he’d turn over in his grave.

Ed died in 1989, a month before the Exxon Valdez oil spill. Bad for us environmeddlers, bad for wilderness, bad for mountain lions, cone-nosed kissing bugs, tortoises and desert rats of the two-legged and four-legged varieties.

What is fortunate, from Ed’s perspective at least, is that he didn’t live to see environmentalism gut shot, hog tied and neutered by overweening climate change alarmism and hysteria.

Today’s environmentalists are an endangered species, skulking about the fringes of “Extinction Rebellion” strikes and “Climate Emergency” media events with “Climate Denier” badges hung about our necks. Climate hysteria is the be-all and end-all of all things environmental in these sad and frustrating times, as we contemplate accelerating habitat destruction, air, water and soil pollution and natural resource destruction at the hands and feet of profligate humans.

One of these days they’ll discover that climate changes all the time, with or without human help. They’ll learn that we can’t slow down, stop, reverse or change the direction of climate change. All we can do is learn to live with the climate as it is, and stop destroying what little is left of the natural world that once was.

Long live the weeds and the wilderness, and real environmentalists, too!

  1. A good comment. Lots of mental stress. The main problem here is that that most of the physiatrists/psychologists, call them what you will, are infected with the same problem so there will be s great deal of this mental stress and problems for years to come. Someone will pop up with a long syndrome name for it.
