It's Earth Day today and to mark the occasion the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review has an editorial "Reclaim your planet."
This looks like a fine sentiment until one stops to read the first paragraph: "Another Earth Day is here. And it represents yet another opportunity to save the planet. Not from ‘ourselves,' as the eco-wackos are telling you, but from the eco-wackos."
It goes on in the same absurdly unbalanced manner. It is actually enjoyable in a perverse sort of way, as if a master humorist had joined the staff of The Trib. Trouble is, this buffoonery is dead serious.
Environmentalism, we are told, is "the nut wing of the conservation movement." It goes on: "Junk science in pursuit of social re-engineering is a danger that far exceeds any of the supposed ills we face from ‘climate change.' "
Tell that to all the scientists around the world recording the many visible signs of man-made global warning.
No, eco-wackos aren't the greatest problem. It's politico-wackos blind to reason who threaten to wreck our world.
