A WSJ article says that the environmentalists are upset with Trump's choice for head of the EPA, Scott Pruitt. He is an environmental science "doubter" they say, and doesn't represent what the majority of Americans want, a clean environment. Classic example of the tangled webs we weave when we ignore the Creator in every area of life, in this case politics, economics and science.
Politics: The environmentalists certainly do not represent me and it is doubtful they represent the majority of Americans. Even if they do, this is typical democracy, the tyranny of the majority. Do the majority of Americans want a clean environment? Certainly, but at the cost of reducing the population of the earth by 95%? Yes, this is part of the green’s hidden agenda. He who hates God loves death.
Science: How much evidence is needed to show that the environment movement is supported by junk science and outright lies? Such tenacious defense in the face of the facts shows the movement for what it is, a religious dogma. Since it is a dogma, there will never be enough acceptable evidence to convince them. You run smack into the myth of neutrality. There are no brute facts. Everything is interpreted in the light of previously accepted and un-provable presuppositions about the nature of reality, knowledge and ethics.
Economics: When it became unpopular to admit you were a collectivist, the collectivists hid out in the green movement. Draconian collectivists economic policies are argued in the name of saving the environment. The secret goal is to keep resources out of reach of economic activity so 95% of us will die from poverty and sickness.
Do I want a clean environment? Of course, but on God's terms as His steward and in a ways that honor His image and likeness in humanity. Humanity is not a plague on the earth. Rebellion against God is and it is the cancer of the environmental movement.
