If we were placed a little further from the sun, we would be a really big ice cube. If we were a little closer, we would be roasting in one big oven. And the placement of the Earth is not by chance, it was placed here for a reason. We humans had nothing to do with earth’s creation, nor did we have anything to do with it’s placement or it’s functioning. We are only a part of it. We are as much part of it as the Spotted Owl, which is a bird. But environmentalists picture humans as a natural enemy of nature.
According to them, we are capable of destroying earth merely by being ourselves. Also don’t understand how these “scientists” of whom which say we are powerful enough to destroy earth, can also say we are no better than a frog. Unfortunately for them, this is what they believe. They seem to think that all life forms on the planet, other than humans, peacefully exist together. They think that humans destroy. Most animals and insects depend on each other for food and do not peacefully co-exist. We could not destroy the earth even if we wanted to.
The earth is over 4 billion years old. Man has been here for no more than 200,000 of those years. We cannot even come close to creating the forces of nature, yet these forces have been around for 4 billion years. And yet, the earth is still here. Mount Punctuation, in the Philippines, spewed forth more than a thousand times the amount of ozone-depleting chemicals in one eruption than all the color-fluorocarbons ever manufactured by evil man and possessed corporations in all of history (Realizing, The Way Things Ought to Be, Pl 55).
So now scientists say that 4-6% of the ozone loss could occur over the Northern Hemisphere over the next 2-3 years (RI-imbuing, The Way Things Ought to Be, Pl 55). Remember: this has been going on for billions of years and we still have a healthy ozone layer. Again, the facts are here, man can’t even come close to equaling the CUFF output of a volcano. Conclusion, Mother Nature has been attacking her own ozone layer for millions of years, and it’s still here. We have only been measuring ozone since 1956 (Realizing, The Way Things Ought to Be, Pl 55).
And scientists still claim that they know enough for us to change our lives. Maybe the largest environmental worry in the recent years is the “potential problem” of the Earth heating up because of man’s abuse of the environment. There is little evidence behind these theories, and most of these theories are being voided after each new study. Scientists say a supernova 340,000 years ago disrupted 10% to 20% of the ozone layer, causing only a sunburn in prehistoric man (Realizing, See I Told you so, 78). Has man ever created anything even close to the radioactivity and explosive force of a supernova?
My answer: doubtful. And if pre-historic man only got a sunburn, how can we get cancer from air conditioners and spray paint? The environmentalists enjoy gloom and doom. When the ozone theory has faded, environmentalists will come-up with new theories like the myth that cell phones cause cancer. Well, these same “scientists” made the following reductions ;.NET-five years on Earth Day, 1970: A. In ten years, city dwellers will need gas masks to breath. B. In a decade, America’s rivers will have reached the boiling point. C.
In ten years, all important animal life in the sea will be extinct and vast area of coastline will be evacuated because of the stench of dead fish. D. Five years is all we have left if we are going to preserve any kind of quality in the world. (A-D: Realizing, See I Told You So, IPPP) We here claims like these every day. Yet, these were not made last week, they were made more than twenty years ago. It was Life magazine that claimed our air would be so polluted by 1 980 that we would have to wear gas masks (Realizing, See I Told You So, IPPP).
It was commentator Edwin Newman who was predicting the boiling rivers. And it was Paul Earlier who was responsible for the last two statements (Realizing, See I Told You So, Pl 80). And to add to the list, the University of California predicted in 1977 that if the present trend continues, the world will be four degrees colder for the global mean in 1 990 (Realizing, See I Told You So, IPPP). We are now told that the same pollution that would cause these “colder enraptures” Will also cause the melting of the polar ice caps. Not all of this information came from Rush.
Popular Science Magazine also stated identical concepts. For example, they state that from 1880-1940 the average temperatures increased. And it is also stated that from 1940-1980, the average temperatures were decreasing (Langford, IPPP). So Rush is not the only person saying this. IT IS FACTUAL, the earth goes through cycles. Especially the cycle of warming and cooling (Langford, IPPP). Ozone is created by the sun, particularly ultraviolet sunlight. And yet we are encouraged to believe the earth will come to an end because of occasionally reduced levels of ozone in the Northern Hemisphere.
These levels always seem to rebound to normal. Why is that? In fact, technology we have today actually helps reducing air pollution, and these “scientists” do not seem to realize it. They also can’t comprehend that 96% of the greenhouse gases are natural (Langford, See I Told You so, Pl 54-155). Why do these people always have to try to repair problems of the United States? We are the cleanest country in the world with maybe the exception of Switzerland, which is a big museum anyway.
