Perhaps the only good thing to come out of the real threats to our nation has been a reduction in the media coverage of the endless end-of-the-world scenarios put forth by the vast network of environmentalist organizations, the Greens.

On March 22, 2002, burried in those newspapers that published the story, was an article by Paul Recur, the Associated Press science writer. He reported that scientists at the Lament-Doherty Earth Observatory in New York had teamed with colleagues from the Swiss Federal Research Institute to publish a study that noted that whatever global warming is predicted is perfectly natural.

The report stated that the Earth is "capable of rapid changes and long periods of above-average warmth on its own with greenhouse warming." The report noted a previous weather event known as the Medieval Warm Period some 800 to 1,000 years ago. This occurred, of course, prior to any socalled man-made greenhouse gas, since the Industrial Age hadn't even begun. Does mankind have anything to do with the weather? Simply stated, there is no global warming. The overall, average temperature of the Earth has not increased in more than a half century since 1950.

The next time you read that the Earth is severely threatened in any way, remember that the Earth is a marvelously self-adjusting mechanism that has been around for some 5.4 billion years, most of it without the presence of humans.

It is the human population that needs our attention and our protection. We need to insure that farmers and ranchers can grow their crops and maintain the herds and flocks that feed Americans and others around the world. We can do that with genetically modified food seeds that will produce more crops that can resist blight and insect predation. These new GM seeds will insure that more forest land is not destroyed to grow more food. We need to provide farmers with the pesticides they need to protect those crops against insect predators. We need to insure they receive the herbicides and soil enrichment chemicals to help grow abundant fields of wheat, soy, rice, and other food sources.

We need to end the United Nations ban on DDT so that millions around the world will not die needlessly every year from Malaria and other insect-born diseases. We need to rescind the bans on insecticides so people here and around the world can eliminate the many insects and rodents that spread disease and destroy millions of dollars in property every year. An estimated one third of the Earth's food supply is destroyed annually by rodent predation.

We need to understand that environmentalist groups are not our friends, trying to save fuzzy little animals, but rather that they are funded by corrupt foundations like Ford, Rockefeller, and Pew so they can continue their assault on our economy, our nation, and our lives. They contribute to a huge environmentalist program run out of the United Nations, the single greatest enemy of freedom in the world.

We need an open war on the animal rights lunatics who are responsible, not just for millions of dollars of damage to commercial enterprises, but to university laboratories working on new cures for disease and ways to aid our agricultural communities. Members of the Animal Liberation Front and the Earth Liberation Front must be hunted down and jailed before they do more damage. ALF and ELF are the equivalent of Islamic terror organizations. Our government has to investigate the way People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has supported these groups and, if proof is found that they are aiding and abetting them, PETA needs to be brought before the bar of justice.

We have to end government "environmental" policies that have led to more than 73 million acres in the U.S.A. being put off limits to the use of Americans. These policies prevent use of the restricted acres for recreational purposes, impede the proper management of our vast natural forests, and hinder the development of the housing required by a nation that has taken in ten million new immigrants in the past decade. The policies threaten private property rights, the keystone of the capitalist system that has given this nation its wealth.

We need to be more energy independent, and that means ignoring calls for "alternative" energy sources, such as thousands of windmills, instead of greater use of the coal we have to generate electricity, the lifeblood of our nation and our economy. Forty percent of our electrical energy utilizes coal, and we have coal deposits that will last for centuries.

We need to get into the tiny part of the Alaskan reserve so that we can reduce our dependence on foreign oil. And we need to make it easier to drill for oil in the Gulf of Mexico, where there are millions more barrels available to meet our needs.

We have to be realistic about nuclear energy, understanding how non-polluting and safe it is, provided we can solve the problem of storing nuclear waste.

Right now, the government is too involved with attacking our nation's utilities in the name of "pollution" when those facilities have mostly been technologically upgraded to eliminate the pollutants produced in the process of providing electricity. The entire mining industry, not just for coal, but all other vital minerals, has been deliberately handicapped, often driven to other nations. The Greens stand in the way of all of these needs and fight the suppliers in the courts of our nation, using laws imposed in the name of protecting the environment. More than a third of all the laws and regulations the federal government has adopted since 1970 are devoted to the "environment." We need to free America to grow and prosper.

We need to get out of the United Nations before it succeeds in imposing U.N. taxes on worldwide energy use, air transportation, and currency transactions. If the United Nations achieves its goal of global governance, the United States Constitution and the 50 state constitutions will not be worth the parchment or paper on which they are written. Under those constitutions, only Congress and the states have the right to tax Americans. By all means, let's keep it that way!

Achieving energy independence will not happen if Americans continue to be victimized by the scare campaigns of the Greens. There must be a new American Revolution, based on real science, not on junk science and political propaganda--a revolution to save ourselves and to insure constitutional democracy in the world.
