Greens Hate Science

    Mr. Mead, you’re not the only one exposing the environmental hucksters.

    I refer you to “An environmental Reformation” by Steven Hayward (National Review, July 18).

    It tells how two more or less prominent environmentalists (Michael Shellenberger and Ted Nordhaus) are trying to bring the Greens back from their kookiness and get nothing but hate in return. That’s H-A-T-E, Mr. Mead.

    An interesting point in the article is how Stu Brand of Whole Earth Catologue fame is another convert to reality. Brand is going around noting how a single organic farm in German has recently killed more people than have all the nuclear power plants that German is rushing to close.

    This NR article, along with your critique, are good evidence that the tide is indeed turning against the kooks and radical environmentalists.

    It looks like the elite will have to find another way to try and socialize the world. Maybe they’ll try another war.

    Interesting column by Bjorn Lomborg in the Australian, re Australia’s newly-proposed Carbon Tax, and how it’s being marketed by the government:

  • It seems they have been going around and destroying genetically modified crops all over the place. I’ve seen stories about this happening in Belgium and Germany over the past few months.

    A minor correction – the police raid was yesterday; the actual attack on the crops was last Friday. What was the most disturbing aspect of this story was the total lack of criticism of this Luddite-like attack by the Greens in Federal Parliament or in the ACT (local) government in Canberra.

    The Greens – at the Federal level here in Australia – are still coming to terms with sharing responsibility for irresponsible actions. As this episode shows, they still have a lot to learn.

    Can you provide any links to back up the claim that “the scientific community has generally concluded that they are perfectly safe for consumption”?

    I have no strong opinion on this yet, just trying to learn the facts.
