Do you know why the environmental movement [as I refer to them & this webpage] is entitled Watermelon Environmentalism? [To see what is new look at the UPDATES at the bottom of this page.]
The short answer is though the environmental movement may appear "GREEN" on the outside, it is "RED" on the inside [red as in what we consider a weird word these days - Communism]. The Greens hope to convince us that the environmental "problem" is too large for individuals to tackle and that [a world] government is the only entity whom can handle the "immense" multi-national problems to "save the earth." Care to guess what type of government? Bottom line for those who have studied political science, or have read papers for the last few years is the Green movement, although sometimes indirectly, advocates communism. Not a nice thought for those of us who like the Bill of Rights, or, for that matter, the Constitution. Expect movement at the United Nations to consolidate its power and create the ability to govern the world. At that time, fear for our [and your children's] Constitutional rights.
For those who may doubt, Mikhail Gorbachev [USSR] is involved in the Green movement. . . . Could you imagine the wreck we would have if that were so? Do you remember Chernobyl or the current status of horrific pollution in the Caspian Sea? Sure is a scary thought Gorbachev should be cheering the eco-movement on! Oh, and by-the-way, don't believe ole Mikhail believes in Jesus either. . . .
Do any of you now know what the goal of the environmental movement means to you and your future?
"This is true in the struggle to save the environment....we must be the organizers, the leaders of these movements. . . Human society cannot basically stop the destruction of the environment under capitalism. Socialism is the only structure that makes it possible." Gus Hall, Communist Party USA, Ecology 1972 [Gus Hall is now the national Chairman of the CPUSA]
"Every American shares a fundamental concern for and sincere appreciation of the beauty of our natural environment. We can all identify with the special feelings that automatically arise as we experience the wonder of nature: warm summer nights, crisp fall mornings or dark, cloudy, windy days. From the creatures in the wild to a box full of puppies, even the scent of a freshly mown lawn stirs our senses. There is no question, Americans care about the environment, animals and nature." (Set Up and Sold Out)
Ah . . , yep . . , I am sure you are scratching your head at this very moment. Unfortunately, too many people think the goal of environmentalists or most all environmental organizations are looking out for the environment, but the real story is amazingly similar to the animal rights movement and their extremists. In fact, you could say it is strikingly similar. Now, I am going to take a big leap of faith and say their goals have possibly started independently, but recently, they have been acting more and more with unified goals. This is why I have included this topic. Please understand I know there are sincere people who really care about water quality and really enjoy a hike in the woods. This page is not for or about them.
Did you know that the founder of Earth First!- a radical environmental movement that puts trees before human life is now serving on the Board of Directors of the Sierra Club? You know the SC people, . . . . nice calendars and saviors of trees and spotted owls. It was reported in Trashing the Economy, Rod Arnold and Alan Gottlieb, that in 1979, Dave Foreman was propositioned by the Wilderness Societyand, yep, you guessed it, the Sierra Clubto form a radical environmental group which they would finance.
Note: Dave Foreman, founder of eco-terrorist group Earth First!. Co-authored Eco-Defense, A Field Guide to Monkeywrenching. The book details what to do and how to commit terrorists acts. Although the book carries a disclaimer that says it is a joke so the author is not subject to legal liabilities, it promotes terrorism and that is no joke.
Monkeywrenching, for your clarity, includes destroying logging equipment, hammering spikes into trees so as to cause damage to saws and those who operate them [you know fathers, brothers and sons]. Doesn't sound much like a joke to me.
. . . and you thought the Sierra Club was a kindly group?
Just in from The Federalist a conservative e-digest located at www.federalist.comis an interesting update on "global warming" from the Federalist #00-22.dgst.
Beginning in 1993, more than 100 million Americans in 67,000 congregations became the target of radical leftist environmental propaganda, fueled by over $5 million in grants from private foundations. The goal is to break down the strongest resistance to an environmental movement that advocates earth worship, and the idea that man is only equal to rocks, plants and animals. Much of the opposition to such ideas is strongest in America's Christian churches.
But is that opposition still apparent today?
I am afraid not.
Let's first examine what Earth Day is and what the goals of the radical environmental movement are in respect to this the "Christmas" of environmentalism.
I was horrified. There I stood in the office of my church looking down at a document that was endorsed by the Reformed Church of America [ http://www.netministries.org/rca/reformed.htm] which could have been published by any terrorist environmental group. Any my church was approving what would eventually lead to something that certainly was against every Biblical principle that I had been taught to believe in and practice.
I don't want to belabor the point, because this webpage project is primarily about the extremism of animal rights, but for those of us who don't remember the Nazi's well, there are some interesting parallels between the Nazi's, Lenin and the Environmental movement which you will not want to miss in Holly's book.
Revelations 3:22 "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."
Let us not fall into the trap of not learning from history! Let us not repeat the horrors. You need to understand the environmental movement of today is very, very anti-God.

"Bad news for Al "Globalbabble" Gore. A group of climatologists, physicists, geologists, chemists, meteorologists, engineers and economists convened for an independent scientific review of the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, and found it to be replete with junk science.
The 1,000-page report concludes that there is evidence of "discernible human influence" on the global climate. However, many of the scientists, who participated in the IPCC report as technical advisors, disagreed. "We have carefully examined both documents and find no credible evidence to support this claim," said Fred Singer, an atmospheric physicist who heads the Science and Environmental Policy Project. Ross McKitrick, an economist, noted, "Climate alarmists put the policy cart in front of the science horse. The Kyoto Protocol, for all the enormous costs it will impose on nations and our global economy, will have no discernible impact on the climate change process. Why are we in such a hurry to adopt an incredibly expensive policy, which is a completely futile attempt to influence a process that we can neither predict, identify, measure, nor control?"
Hey, global warming unifies liberal globalists and tree huggers, and scares the stuffing out of the couch-potato electorate -- the perfect political ploy!"
FEDERALIST PERSPECTIVE Date: 08 September 2000 Federalist #00-36.dgst
In the news this week, as if there were not enough "enemies within," the United Nations Millennium Summit in New York is an exposition of enemies from abroad. Billed as an event to chart the course of the United Nations for the next century, the summit set its crosshairs directly on our national sovereignty. Taking aim, former Soviet Union president Mikhail Gorbachev insisted the U.N. must fill the power void left after the Cold War, and he proposed a radical agenda to broaden U.N. authority. "In addition to the Security Council, we must have an Economic Council and an Environmental Council with authority equal to that of the Security Council," said Mr. Gorbachev. AKA -- Marxism
Alan Tonelson, a research fellow at the U.S. Business and Industry Council, says, "[The summit] is one more development in an ongoing process by the world government lobby to bring us closer to world government. [The U.S. could lose] our sovereignty over our own laws and regulations. ... [The U.N.] continues to promote these trial balloons, and they will gradually get governments so desensitized to what's happening that they'll be able to slip various things through. They have a fairly long time horizon, even though they sometimes sound very impatient, and they are confident time is on their side."
Oh boy . . .
