Critics of environmentalism like Objectivists and many private scientists (private means not bought and paid for with government money ) have long contended that the green movement is against all forms of energy production. Ample evidence of this lies in the fact that whenever any kind of power plant is proposed, green groups immediately file law suits to stop it. Now from Pajamas Media comes even more evidence of their hatred of the good because it is good. Writer Patrick Richardson reports on the green opposition to power lines leading to and from wind farms. A key quote from the article:
“Environmental groups, which are as quick to fang each other as they are dirty polluters, are lining up in opposition to the lines and to wind farms in general. In fact, they’re lining up against most current sources of renewable power: the Audubon Society hates wind farms because the blades kill birds and bats; hydroelectric covers up large swaths of land and releases “greenhouse gasses” when decaying material is exposed to the air; the Sierra Club has opposed solar plants in the Mohave. Apparently, even geothermal creates toxic waste no one wants. So what’s the solution?”
Mr. Richardson goes on to say:
“There isn’t one. The power companies involved in the Kansas program are still trying to get the approval they need. Lawsuits have already been filed to stop the construction. The lesser prairie chicken is still doing its mating dance, and environmental groups still continue to oppose all types of power generation.”
We see the general attitude of the green movement here against human life; the lesser prairie chicken has a right to its habitat but humans–who must reshape nature for their survival–do not have a right to theirs.
