UK green: Cut population in half

March 23, 2009

The Sunday Times reported on Mar. 22 that,

JONATHON PORRITT, one of Gordon Brown’s leading green advisers, is to warn that Britain must drastically reduce its population if it is to build a sustainable society.

Porritt’s call will come at this week’s annual conference of the Optimum Population Trust (OPT), of which he is patron.

The trust will release research suggesting UK population must be cut to 30m [from 61 million currently] if the country wants to feed itself sustainably.

The 30-million goal is about what the UK population was in late-Victorian times.

Steve Milloy’s new book Green Hell: How Environmentalists Plan to Control Your Life and What You Can Do to Stop Them spotlights green efforts to ration people.

Obama’s economic Rx: Renewable rip-offs

March 23, 2009

President Obama said today,

“We’ve seen enough. We can remain the world’s leading importer of foreign oil, or we can become the world’s leading exporter of renewable energy.”

Three points in response to Obama’s green-tinted America-bashing:

  • Who around the world (except U.S. taxpayers) can afford to subsidize economically inefficient renewables like solar and wind technologies?
  • Maybe we wouldn’t need to import so much oil if only the greens would let us drill.
  • We may be the leading importer of foreign oil, but we do the most with that oil. We are the most productive country in history.

NYC co-op: Green is easy with taxpayer $$$

March 23, 2009

Taxpayers have greened up the River Arts co-op in New York City, according to a report in today’s New York Times.

Daunted by the $400,000 price tag of a new solar power system for the co-op, its board balked at the 10 years it would take to recover the investment through energy savings.

Then, taxpayers came to the rescue — providing enough federal, state and city tax credits to reduce the net cost of the solar system to $10,000.

It would seem that the least River Arts residents could do would be to invite us taxpayer sugar-daddies over for a cocktail.

New green target: Car colors

March 23, 2009

California is working to reduce your choice in car colors in the name of green.

Carbon Control News reported today that California regulators have proposed that car makers use so-called “cool” paints to reduce the interior temperature of cars, thereby reducing air conditioning use and, consequently, improving gas mileage.

Automakers say such a regulation would:

  • Eliminate a significant number of vehicle colors (e.g., black paint and dark metallic colors would essentially be banned, representing 40 percent of sales for some manufacturers);
  • Raise costs for manufacturers and consumers — about $1.2 billion annually; and
  • Increase CO2 emissions because of forced changes in the painting process and increased vehicular weight.

You may only be able to buy white/light-colored cars, but what about Al Gore (check out this video) and the other green elites?

From the Inside Flap:

Big Brother Has Turned Green

The environmental movement has cultivated a warm and fuzzy public image, but behind the smiley-face rhetoric of “sustainability” and “conservation” lies a dark agenda. The Greens aim to regulate your behavior, downsize your lifestyle, and invade the most intimate aspects of your personal life.
In this stunning exposé, Steve Milloy unveils the authoritarian impulse underlying the Green crusade. Whether they’re demanding that you turn down your thermostat, stop driving your car, or engage in some other senseless act of self-denial, the Greens are envisioning a grim future for you marked by endless privation.

Steamrolling nearly all opposition with its apocalyptic predictions of environmental doom, the Green movement has gained influence throughout American society–from schools and local planning boards to the biggest corporations in the country. And their plans are much more ambitious than you think, says Milloy. What the Greens really seek, with increasing success, is to dictate the very parameters of your daily life–where you can live, what transportation you can use, what you can eat, and even how many children you can have.

Citing the tactics and goals of Green groups as explained by their own activists and leaders, Green Hell demonstrates:

  • How Green pressure campaigns threaten the safety of your home and your car, and public health overall
  • Why the election of President Obama portends a giant leap forward for coercive Green policies
  • Why Greens obstruct the use of all forms of energy–even the renewable sources they tout to the public
  • How wealthy Green elites stand to profit fabulously from the restrictions and regulations they seek to impose on the rest of us
    * How Green pressure campaigns are hamstringing the military and endangering our national security
  • Why big business is not only knuckling under to the Greens, but is aggressively promoting the green agenda to the detriment of its own stockholders
  • What you can do to help stop the great Green machine

A one-of-a-kind, comprehensive takedown of the entire environmental movement, Green Hell will open your eyes to a looming threat to our economy, our civil liberties, and the entire American way of life.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Green Hell

“Green Hell explains why Americans can’t afford to fall for Al Gore’s `the debate is over’ line on global warming. While we’re all for the environment, Green Hell explains why we need to oppose the environmentalists.” —Fred Barnes, Executive Editor, the Weekly Standard

“Green Hell is the `inconvenient truth’ on extremist, growth-killing environmentalism. A must-read for those interested in keeping America free and prosperous.” —Steve Forbes, President and Chief Executive Officer of Forbes

“Regardless of whether you believe global warming is a fraud, the fact is that the current depression, the past spike in oil prices, and the coming technology of electric cars are all going to solve whatever problem exists. Liberals want to use climate change as an excuse to take over the economy and regulate everything and this book exposes their plans.” —Dick Morris, FOX News commentator and former political consultant to Bill Clinton

“This book describes why the world can’t afford to fall for global warming alarmism and environmental hysteria. Steve Milloy shows how to avoid the environmentalists’ vision of our future.” —VACLAV KLAUS, President of the European Union and President of the Czech Republic

“Free market capitalism is still the best path to prosperity. Green Hell is a must-read for anyone who wants to keep America on that path and away from Soviet-style command-and-control environmentalism.”
Larry Kudlow, Host, CNBC’s The Kudlow Report
