Most people love nature. After all, what’s not to love about chirping birds, cute penguins and fuzzy polar bear cubs? Besides, we all want to live in a healthy environment with clean air to breathe and clean water to drink. It only makes sense that people care about the environment and want to be “green”.
But most people don’t know the truth about the very ugly and dangerous underside of the environmental movement. The environmental movement as it exists today is decidedly anti-human at its very core.
Read the actual words of nine well-known environmentalists expressing their opinion on humanity. It is chilling. (I was first made aware of most of these quotes by the @CFACT twitter account of the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow. Check out their excellent website, and follow them if you are on Twitter.)
