ENVIRONMENTALISM & GENOCIDE IN THE THIRD WORLD:
KILLING MILLIONS OF PEOPLE TO "SAVE" THE EARTH
By Alan Caruba
So, when I received a copy of Paul Driessen’s book, Eco-Imperialism: Green Power - Black Death, the first thing I noticed was the familiar image on its cover--the image of the mother holding her starving child. I also noticed this statement: “In 2000, say World Health Organization and other studies, malaria infected over 300 million peo- ple. It killed nearly 2,000,000—most of them in sub-Saharan Africa. Over half of the victims are children, who die at the rate of two per minute, or 3,000 per day.”
In his introduction to Driessen’s book, Niger Innis of the Congress of Racial Equality, says, "This book should have been written years ago." He’s right, but it has taken years for the full picture of the evil to emerge--the evil perpetrated by those claiming they want to "save the Earth." Many of us who have struggled to demonstrate the moral depravity and corruption of the environmental movement have concentrated on various elements of it. Driessen’s triumph has been to present the full picture.
Capturing the theme of Driessen’s book, Innis says “The [environmental] movement imposes the views of mostly wealthy, comfortable Americans and Europeans on mostly poor, desperate Africans, Asians, and Latin Americans. It violates these peo- ple’s most basic human rights, denying them economic opportunities, the chance for better lives, the right to rid their countries of diseases that were vanquished long ago in Europe and the United States.”
I count myself fortunate to call Paul Driessen my friend. He is one of those doughty warriors among the small circle of those who fight the lies of environmental organizations. What are we up against? You may think of the environmental movement in terms of its books, its calendars, and the stuffed animals representing the real live animals it deems endangered. You may think of the movement in terms of striving to “save” the rain forest and avoid “global warming”, but, as Driessen points out, the environmental movement is a powerful $4 billion-a-year industry in the U.S.A. and an $8 billion-a-year international goliath.
The truth behind the many false environmentalist claims was revealed in Bjorn Lom- borg’s book, The Skeptical Environmentalist: Measuring the Real State of the World. However, with $8 billion, the movement is capable of manipulating national and in- ternational public opinion and public policy in ways that ultimately keep Third World nations mired in poverty and unable to prevent the eco-murder of millions of Africans, Asians, and Latin Americans.
Driessen describes just how they do that in one chapter after another. The ban on DDT is perhaps the most dramatic and visible example of this. In South Africa, the most developed nation on the continent, the continued use of this life-saving pesticide has kept the incidence of malaria very low. When, in 1996, environmentalist pressures convinced the program’s directors to cease using DDT, it led to one of the worst epi- demics in the nation’s history, with almost 62,000 cases in 2000. When DDT use was reintroduced, malaria cases plummeted by 80%.
As Richard Tren, President of Africa Fighting Malaria, notes, “In the 60 years since DDT was first introduced, not a single scientific paper has been able to replicate even one case of actual human harm from its use.”
In a similar way, Driessen points out how the environmental movement’s rejection of genetically modified food crops, biotechnology, promises only more famine worldwide. “The fact that a quarter of the developing world’s children under age ten are mal- nourished is of little apparent concern to them,” says Driessen, and he’s right. The environmentalists would rather see millions of Africans, Asians, and others die than permit this remarkable advance in food production to succeed.
Considering the environmentalists' opposition to and rejection of biotechnology, DDT application, and many other life-enhancing and life-saving scientific, medical, and technological discoveries and innovations, all of which Driessen documents in his book, it is clear that the environmental movement is the greatest threat to the Earth’s population and to any hope that developing nations have of ever breaking through the imposition of restrictions said to represent “sustainable” development. The only thing being sustained is the power of the environmental movement to impose death on the peoples of those nations and the poverty that arises from its loathing of capitalism and the technological and other advances that benefit mankind.
Right now, much of our attention is focused on the war that relatively small groups of fanatical Islamists are waging on the world in order to drag it back to a Dark Age of seventh-century-style religious intolerance, abysmal ignorance, and political tyranny. However, the larger war being waged is that of the environmental movement to keep much of the world’s population without electricity, without clean water, without suffi- cient food, and without the opportunity to conquer disease and achieve wealth, pros- perity, and high living standards similar to those of the West.
To learn more about this remarkable book, visit Eco-Imperialism on the World Wide Web. Driessen's book is published by Merril Press, and the price is $15.00. If you acquire and read the book, I promise that you will at last come to understand why the environmental movement is engaged in the most appalling example of genocide the world has ever known!
