Environmental Activists kill people

By keeping them in poverty and denying them the means to improve their life. 2 billion people worldwide still don’t have access to electricity. (While the likes of Al Gore live in houses that consume 20 times more electricity than the average US home, and more in a week than 26 million Ugandans use in a year. By contrast, because carbon is so bad, bad, bad, they believe Africans, should have electricity only where they need it: little solar panels “on their huts.”

They say energy consumption could cause catastrophic global warming that could bring record cold and heat waves, terrible floods and droughts, disease epidemics and species extinctions. The only “evidence” they have for any of this are worst-case scenarios produced by computer models that do not accurately reflect complex atmospheric processes and cannot predict temperature or rainfall even one year in the future, or reproduce real world conditions when run against real world data.

They demand that others do as they say, not as they do, and donot develop the energy resources they so desperately need. Some 95% of Sub-Saharan Africans still do not have electricity, lights or refrigeration or have them only a few hours a week. As a result, millions die every year from lung infections caused by pollution from wood and dung fires, and acute intestinal diseases caused by tainted water and spoiled food. Millions more die from diseases that would be largely eradicated by the improved living standards, healthcare systems and agriculture that come with prosperity, modern technology and abundant energy. The situation is similar on the Indian sub-continent.

Al Gore, and his eco-fascist ilk, like Rainforest Action and Greenpeace constantly battle energy projects in poor countries. They oppose coal and gas-fired power plants because of non-existent global warming, hydroelectric projects because they dam up rivers, nuclear power because it generates radioactive wastes. They expect African and other poor nations to base their future on insufficient, expensive, unreliable wind and solar energy. That is a virtual guarantor of perpetual poverty.

They also oppose biotechnology to improve agricultural output, insecticides to reduce malaria and other diseases, (Rachel Carson has much to answer for; ‘green’ policies based on her flawed and downright falsified book make her a killer of more babies than Adolf Hitler or Josef Stalin.), They even oppose transport links that allow people in poor countries to bring their produce to more developed countries like ours.

They don’t want the world’s poor to rise up out of poverty, because then they would become consumers, use more resources and demand more electricity. Green activists are happy to demand more aid and debt relief, but they do everything possible to prevent energy, mineral and economic development, modern agriculture and living standards, or meaningful opportunities for the world’s poor to take their rightful places among the Earth’s healthy and prosperous people.

African, Asian, Latin American and Eastern European countries have abundant oil, gas, coal, nuclear and hydroelectric resources. And they have the ultimate resource the brain power, creativity and proud work ethic of their people. If they are helped – or even encouraged – to harness these resources, and unleash the power of free enterprise under sound legal, regulatory, economic and property rights systems they will generate previously unimaginable opportunity, health and prosperity for their people.

Meanwhile, we have zerocarbonbritain trying to return us to the same conditions.

I meant to write more about politics, But I read an articlae tha started me on this track. What can we do? Don’t give money to organisations like Greenpeace, especially Greenpeace. Challenge them at every opportunity. Agitate for sensible aid policies – like technical help to exploit natural resources and provide energy to let people help themselves. “Give a man a fish and he will feed himself for a day. Teach him to fish and trap him in
