Happy Earth Day Sheeple

HAPPY EARTH DAY

It’s Earth Day, the “largest civic event in the world” that was started to give bored anti-Vietnam hippies something else to protest about. It’s also an annual excuse for earnest news publications to run eco-garbage scare stories. Just take a look at this gem from the Guardian:

“Earth Day: scientists say 75% of known fossil fuel reserves must stay in ground.”

The Guardian story is following in a fine tradition, here’s some choice quotes from 1970, the year Earth Day was founded.

“[By 1995]…somewhere between 75 and 85 percent of all the species of living animals will be extinct” Sen. Gaylord Nelson, the founder of Earth Day, Look Magazine

Man must stop pollution and conserve his resources, not merely to enhance existence but to save the race from the intolerable deteriorations and possible extinctionThe New York Times

Quote of the Day

Marc Almond on Emma Thompson…

“Emma Thompson has arrived in her gas guzzling carbon footprint stomping jet to serve Vegan food from the boat parked on Oxford Circus while the Yoga classes are taking place on Waterloo Bridge! Haha really? Couldn’t make this stuff up.”
