Forty-five years ago, we had dirty air and water in the US. LA looked like Beijing
The Cuyahoga River used to catch on fire.
I worked hard to get the Clean Air Act passed, and to establish and protect wilderness areas. I worked two summers as a volunteer ranger in the Cibola and Santa Fe National Forests. This was my home one summer at 12,000 feet elevation.
The US was very successful at cleaning up the environment. But then the environmental movement was hijacked by big money pushing the global warming scam. What would happen if fossil fuels were banned?
Every tree in the forest would be cut down for firewood. The air would be thick with smoke from burning wood. Every animal in the forest would be hunted to extinction for food. Whales would be hunted to extinction for oil. It would be an environmental apocalypse.
Low cost fossil fuels keep us clean, green, healthy and prosperous. Our clean environment is the result of our responsible use of fossil fuels. A clean environment is a luxury brought by wealth, which poor, low-CO2 emitting countries don’t enjoy.
Communist countries are filthy.
Greens are being used by the very rich pushing the climate scam
Greens need to get a grip, and understand that they are being used by very unscrupulous people. This has nothing to do with the climate.
