Well okay, I mean all right so hello again. Little Mouse was worried bout my blood pressure after reading the last post. She said she can always tell how my days gone by how many f bombs I drop in my posts. She keeps after me to be a kinder gentler unit but the weather outside just started turning nasty, God bless America, I think that means that we’re (or more precisely you re: my crankiness) are pretty much screwed until March.

Anyway it put me in kind of funk this morning right off the bat and I realized the last thing I wanna go do is blog some long diatriblical rant about any of my usual topics this.

Which left me of course with the dilemma of what I was going to write about…? I should just post one of the back-ups I have ready, I know I still…

The Earth Day Fairy

April 23, 2014

Well it’s Earth day…

I use to be really into it.

I never talk about it much but I love the outdoors, camping, and even more than simply camping I love orienteering.

Last years campsite in the Badlands

Last years campsite in the Badlands

I love nothin’ better than to wander into the wilderness and have done so on numerous occasions (and will again this summer at some point).

It all stems back to my homeless days when, since I was sleeping outdoors anyway,  I started doing so more n more in the local hills around O.C.; mostly Saddleback Mountain area (Holy Jim Trail, Lost Woman Canyon, some great names).

When you’re sleeping outdoors in the mountains they call it camping.

In the city it’s vagrancy.

Ah but anyway ya see I jes wanna make sure that you understand I really dig (n have since my early twenties) the outdoorsy, minimalist, green-ish lifestyle, before I go typing all the following.

N like usuaal I got nothin ‘gainst people tryin’ to live green or whatever, it’s jes the semantics that bother me, it’s jes the bullshit *logic* employed by the movement’s movers n shakers that’s all.
The same pseudo science propaganda phraseology I get to hear on a daily basis spouted by newscasters n neighbors, some well meaning folks n others flim flam huckster salesmen.

Entry level eco-freak.

Look, long ago when I was a card carryin’ member of Earth First, I bein the Unit that I am and never doin anything half way eventually started exploring the ideas of more extreme green-ies which of curse led me to the book the Monkey Wrench Gang and to other more…determined factions among Earth First members…

Goin hardcore.

I’m not claimin or sayin’ I ever did anything at all but…

Well ya see it’s like this, n I know, I know I talk about this a lot but that’s because all you b-tards with yer constant save the Earth baloney are drivin me to do so…you stop in I’ll stop I promise that’s a deal.
Annyway where the heck was I?
O yea it’s like this, every good n true ecologist knows that there is only one real problem, population growth rate. It doesn’t matter what elsewe do, in fact that’s not necessarily true but we’ll come back to that. That’s why scientists are working so hard fer GMO crops…

The dreaded GMO

The dreaded GMO

We will have issues with other resources but, jeez, look how much trouble the Governments have feeding their populations now.
But this isn’t some fact I somehow alone know. Many, maybe most educated people, know this by now. Certainly as I stated above, the movers n shakers, the powerhouses of the Green Movement know this to be true. More people, more problems.

Our eventual demise?

Our eventual demise?

So one of the key factors you realize, if you are serious about this green buisness, if ya wanna save the Earth, then it would be best to reduce the human population by a huge number of people.

That’s the only thing that is going to “save the planet”
Yet we are sold this idea anyway.
The other thing all of the above mentioned folk know fer sure is that we, meaning (wo)mankind ain’t going to destroy the earth, at the very worst we may make uninhabitable fer all living things (even this is highly doubtful) fer a millennia or so but, heck it’s the damn Earth, it’s been through a lot worse than we can dish out. The ol’ gal would be sure to bounce back.
Yet we are als0 sold this idea, that man is actually on the very brink of destroying the Earth.
They sell us the product though they know it is defective.
Okay now those of you who have read a few of my posts before may have already encountered this conundrum I am again going to try and raise but, yea anyway…
If you are trying to “save” the planet you are going about it wrong…unless yer a smoker…takin a big one fer the team, thanks smokers.

Doin there part to save the planet

Doin there part to save the planet!

If yer doing all that green stuff, yer really tryin to save humans, our way of life, our enjoyment of the world the way it is now (maybe even better fer awhile).
But the thing is, n here we get back to what I mentioned earlier, isn’t it true that the better we do at protecting ourselves and our environment the more of us there will be?
So when I said there is nothing we can do,  I meant only fer the positive, we can affect the Earth by continuing to live and grow as a species. And as I mentioned above unless we all stop procreatin that ain’t gonna happen anyway so…
Logically we can see that all the Green Movement is doing fer the Earth, at least in it’s form now, is prolonging the inevitable, which of course will make things worse not better.
And once again, the movin n shakin folks have to know this is true also…I mean if a little ol Unit like me can figure it out fer sure Al Gore can as well.
Making his "green" the old fashioned way, through intimidation, bullying and snake oil.

Making his “green” the old fashioned way, through intimidation, bullying and snake oil.

So then what is the point behind the whole charade, well of course it must be money, which gives a whole new meaning to the term “Green Movement”. (n here I mean separate from other agenda items like outlawing fossil fuels)

But if it’s only about sellin us all these new products what is the environmental impact of their creation, distribution, purchase etc?
Lol I could offer a few more hypothetical situational attacks on the hypocrisy of the whole thing but what’s the point, it’s not like I’m gonna derail the green train…
N I guess yer doin yer best with the info yer morning show gives ya, buyin those new light bulbs…that aren’t as good a light source, don’t last as long an…oh yea hilariously enough, are more dangerous fer the environment…Oh I mean…it is to do the proverbial laughing.

 

 

Well okay, I mean all right so hello again. Little Mouse was worried bout my blood pressure after reading the last post. She said she can always tell how my days gone by how many f bombs I drop in my posts. She keeps after me to be a kinder gentler unit but the weather outside just started turning nasty, God bless America, I think that means that we’re (or more precisely you re: my crankiness) are pretty much screwed until March.

Anyway it put me in kind of funk this morning right off the bat and I realized the last thing I wanna go do is blog some long diatriblical rant about any of my usual topics this.

Which left me of course with the dilemma of what I was going to write about…? I should just post one of the back-ups I have ready, I know I still have to continue the Declaration of Dysfunction with Articles #2-#5 but…(well maybe I’ll post #2 later tonight) I kind’a wanted to do something fun.

See the things is I know I believe I am right, but you have to believe that I know that doesn’t mean I’m right.

Did ya follow that sentence? See I also know I am dysfunctional, so though I believe I am right about what I write about, I may just as easily…well…be wrong…see? Ya get it?

My main goal here is to discuss those things that are (that we accept as a society) our new truths (oh and even some old ones what the hell) that make my little dog chase it’s tail round and round.

Like say, the environmental or “green” movement. At it’s foundations the theories and ideology are hard to argue with. On the surface, if you don’t think too deeply about any of their claims the movement seems sound and genuine.

Until the little dog starts twirling. And here is why.

The statement goes like this: Because human beings have been, through their behaviors such as over use of resources,  disregard of chemical refuse, etc, extremely harmful to the planet and all life on it.

The environmental movement wants to help guide people gently (or through out lying and force…oh wait that’s my words  not theirs) to learn to modify said behaviors toward a more people/planet harmonious lifestyle there by assuring the planets continued existence.

If we don’t modify, we are told, the earth is doomed.

Have I got that right?  I wanna make sure. If I have spoken (typed) somewhere in error please some one correct me.

But I do believe that I have it pretty spot on, remember I use to be a “real” environmentalist myself…or was I?

Once in awhile, when a dog chases it’s tail long enough it catches it and here’s what happened when mine caught it’s tail.

I realized I wasn’t, that we (most in the movement) weren’t environmentalists at all but humanists.

The Earth is going to be fine and it is the height of arrogance to suggest that we, meaning humans could destroy it.

So the truth is then that we want to take care of the planet so that people continue to survive. (the theory that the entire human race would become extinct is also highly suspect).

That makes me a humanists.

Now if I’m a true environmentalist, a green guy for the planet then really I should be encouraging people, companies, countries to continue pollute. Bring on the fossil fuels and lets start clear cuttin’ some forests baby.

Then the earth will solve it’s own problems by wiping most of humanity out in some grand balancing act.

See okay well maybe I’m wrong like I said above, I’m no scientist or professor lol, but I think I can say that we, as a race will be hard pressed to destory this planet; this f-ing giant ball of rock floating in space.

At best we may put ‘er on her heals for awhile but the big ol’ girl would bounce back bigger and better than ever.

Can you tell me that I’m wrong…I mean really comment or e me if you think I’ve missed it.

But before you do and say something like…”So what if environmentalists want us to be good to the earth for people, that sounds like a good idea”. You’ve missed the point, I don’t care, I just don’t want you to call yourselves environmentalists, or “green” any more.. Call yourself what you are, that’s all I’m saying, call yourself a humanist and be proud of it.

I have this exact problem with many Christians today, oh and speaking of…

Jesus I’m already way over my word per post limit (self imposed, though there must be eventually some digital limit lol), and I know I said I would only talk about God related stuff on Sunday but I mean I’m on a roll and these questions end up being kind’a related, at least to my little dog.
