The Marxist roots of the global warming scare. . .

I came across an article that reminded me of how twisted some folks thinking has gotten.

The Marxist roots of the global warming scare

By Wes Vernon ~

The late Natalie Grant Wraga once wrote, "Protection of the environment has become the principal tool for attack against the West and all it stands for. 

Protection of the environment may be used as a pretext to adopt a series of measures designed to undermine the industrial base of developed nations. 

It may also serve to introduce malaise by lowering their standard of living and implanting communist values...

{... and so on and so forth for another 1400 contrived words.}


What a strange read it was.  
Not one word could be found about our dependence on a healthy environment.         ;\ 

Wes' article begs some questions . . . 
For instance, are these folks even aware of our dependence on things like farming... safe transportation... shelter... for living an enjoyable few years on this planet ?

Have folks like Wraga, Vernon and like-minded no conception for how dependent those necessities are on a healthy environment along with relatively benign and predictable weather patterns ?

How can folks like Wraga, Vernon and like-minded remain dismissive of all the Earth Observations supporting the established science regarding how our atmosphere operates ?   Have they no appreciation that our society has been conducting a Grand Geophysical Experiment by super-charging our planet's thin atmosphere's "Greenhouse Gas" component ?  An honest appraisal of the science and observations is clear, this is for real and the problem is not going away.

How do folks like Wraga, Vernon and like-minded come up such paranoid hysteria equating a nurturing, husbanding approach to our "environment" with ruining our economy ?   {That's not to say some environmentalists don't have some foolish ideas, but that's were communication and cooperation between a wide spectrum of knowledge and experiences comes into play... all sides must work together to confront these challenges.}

How can folks like Wraga, Vernon and like-minded be so glib and ignorant of the fact that radical environmental upheavals bring with them radical disruption and destruction for the established systems ?  {Sure systems recover, but those recoveries operate on timescales of thousands of years... too slow for our kids.}

Do folks like Wraga, Vernon and like-minded have any understanding for the long evolution behind the creation of our historic climate and how special that balance was ?  {Sure climate changes, but it also spent the past four billion years steadily achieving a certain level of refinement and balance that is sure not to last.  
Why must we disrupt it with such speed and abandon ?}
