Do not be a FAKE Environmentalist!

As an ancestral, paleo sort of person, safeguarding our natural environment is very important to me. The fact the glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup by Monsanto is sprayed widely on our crops, and also right in our very yards and gardens disgusts me!
his on your yard or garden, you are compromising the health of your own family, along with anyone else who walks on your poisoned grass. Just stop- your precious micro biome is at risk, for what? A “prettier” carpet-like lawn, with none of the actual beauty of the dandelions, plantain, and all the other “weeds” that make our lawns real nature. If you can’t stand that, move to Arizona, and spray paint your lovely concrete yard a bright green…
But today, my focus is fake environmentalists. People like Al Gore, many, many “celebrities” and Hollywood stars, and many others (usually on the far left), that insist on things like wind turbines and ethanol because “it’s the right thing to do!” It’s not, not even close. Both are horrible ideas, and it is very provable.
Here is a quote from the website
“Wind power harms the environment. Because of the large area of land needed to collect low-density wind energy, wind power requires more land-clearing, needs more transmission lines, kills more wildlife, lights more bushfires and uglifies more landscape per unit of electricity than conventional power. And the subsonic whine of the turbines drives neighbors batty and devalues local properties.
Like hydro-power, wind power is limited, with few suitable sites. And every wind turbine slows the wind, thus reducing the wind energy available to any downwind turbines. It is ‘renewable’ but it is not unlimited.
Wind power is justified by claims that it reduces emissions and thus reduces global warming. However, when all the steel, concrete, construction, maintenance, replacement and rehabilitation are taken into account, wind power contributes nothing to reducing emissions or changing global climate.
However wind turbines DO change the local weather. Wind is the major component of weather. Winds bring moisture to the inland, clear pollution from the cities, and change air temperatures everywhere. Wind towers rob the wind of its energy, affecting local wind speeds and changing local weather patterns.
Wind power is an expensive, intermittent and limited energy source that degrades the environment, kills birds, affects the local weather but does nothing to improve global climate.”
Wind farms kill raptors, meaning eagles, hawks, falcons and other birds of prey by the tens of thousands, mowing them down like huge lawnmowers set in their way with sharp, rotating blades. And, since wind farms produce only a tiny fraction of our electric energy, they are simply a “feel good” solution that is not a solution. In other words- fake environmentalism.
In fact, global warming, which is now being termed climate change (just to cover all bases, since warming does not appear to be happening), is one more blazing example of fake environmentalism. The idea is to get people all fired up over something, anything really, and then insist that it needs a big government solution!
This last, of course, is the real reason that the fake cause is being brought up- Big Government can grow- they can expand their bureaucracy, raise more and more taxes, and shut down more and more small businesses that can’t meet their made-up mandates and restrictions.

Ethanol is also all about fake environmentalism. Far more energy, and far more poisons like glyphosate, and endless mono cropping of GMO corn go into producing this bad, substandard fuel. Sure, it funds big, giant agri-business, and does nothing for small family farms, who have almost been run out of business thanks to the huge federal bureaucracy of the American Dept. of Agriculture, that was supposed to help them!
See how big government “help” always turns out?
REAL environmentalism is what I do, and I hope you do as well! Safeguard your own property and neighborhood. You, yourself. Hopefully with the help of your neighbors, but even I have glyphosate “fake environmentalists” in my area- I try to teach by example.
I leave much of my property wild, wooded and with brush piles for the many creatures that live there. I like the many deer, but I encourage my deer hunting neighbors to harvest them, since I don’t want them to starve and become disease ridden, since there are no longer any other predators for them but man. Bald eagles are also very prevalent hereabouts, and I give thanks that we have NO wind turbines around, probably because it is so hilly. But I do know that one county near here has outlawed them.
My wife is from a prairie state, and her small home town has been decimated by being ringed with many wind turbines. She can hardly bear to go home to visit, so changed is the landscape- it looks like the old War of the Worlds, with huge Martian monstrosities invading our green earth, with red lights shining off their metal blades.
Have a big, organic garden. Don’t spray your “weeds”- they are probably the most nutritious things you have around- put them in your smoothies! Just as (I hope) you don’t take prescription drugs, don’t put prescription pesticides on your lawn. Who wants a “carpet lawn” anyway?? Well, probably Al Gore and all the other celebrity fake environmentalists.
They fly around in huge jets, have multiple (energy-sucking) Mc Mansions, and don’t do anything real themselves, ever- their whole lives are based on make-believe!
Be a real environmentalist- in fact, be a real person. Do what is best for your land, for your health, for your neighbors and neighborhood! Don’t listen for “talking points” from politicians and celebrities, just as you don’t listen to drug prescription ads. Take care of your health, your life, your land and family yourself.
Big Government can only do it much, much worse!
