IP for 4.29.10: Celebrate Pantheism

The environmentalist in me likes to stretch out Earth Day celebrations for a whole week. So, in honor of Earth Week, here’s some great articles about the environmental movement, the coming (no, really!) environmental catastrophes, and why hunters are the true conservationists. Thanks for being so enduring, Earth!

This Earth Day, Thank a Hunter by Humberto Fontova

“To date, hunters and fishermen have shelled out over $20 billion ‘on behalf of the environment.’”

Apocalypse Soon by Mark Steyn

“The ‘markets first’ approach was notable by its absence in, say, Eastern Europe, where government regulation of every single aspect of life resulted in environmental devastation beyond the wildest fantasies of the sinister Bush-Cheney-Enron axis of excess.”

Earth Day Turns 40 by Roy Spencer

“In fact, almost all forms of life on Earth feed off of other forms of life. What we consider to be pristine nature is in reality a battleground between different forms of life that are all competing for the same natural resources — if not each others’ heads.”

Earth Day: 40 years of imminent catastrophe by Laura E. Huggins

“Four decades later, the world hasn't come to an end. Most measures of human welfare show the Earth's population is better off today than at any other time in human history. Life expectancy is increasing, per-capita income is rising, and the air we breathe and the water we drink are cleaner.”
