“We have a vision of rivers and streams running so clear and clean that you can bend a knee to the water, cup your hands, and drink without fear.” This idyllic scene is the goal posted on one environmental group’s website. Another defines their goal as, “explore, enjoy and protect wild places of the earth.” Yet another says they want to “protect all wildlife and plants in their natural communities.” Maintaining the “protection” theme, two others state that they exist for the “protection of the forests, rivers, deserts and grasslands,” while the other is “to protect our water and air, our public lands, our rural character, and our unique quality of life.”
I want to go there. Don’t you? Who wouldn’t want to live in a place with clean water, natural communities with rural character, and a unique quality of life? In this utopia there would be wildlife and plants, forests, rivers, deserts and grasslands. While the environmental groups do not state this, I am sure this environmental utopia would have cherubic children frolicking in fields of daisies while baby bunnies nibble on the fresh green grass moistened by summer showers. Gentle breezes would blow and the sun’s rays would glisten off the sparkling stream as it gurgles over granite stones. Puffy clouds in the shapes of flowers, hearts, and even Mickey Mouse would float by.
We all want a green earth, clean water, fresh air and a safe food supply. Wouldn’t it be great if we could quit fighting all the evils in the world, suddenly wave a magic wand and grant all of these environmental groups their wishes? Wouldn’t the world be a prettier place, a perfect paradise? Does it sound too good to be true?
A deeper study of the aforementioned environmental groups—plus many others—reveals their true goals. If they could have all their dreams come true, we’d all be living in caves. With approximately 6 billion people on the planet, assuming an average of four people per household, we’d need 1.50 billion caves—and those caves would all need to be near a fresh water source. With no plumbing or sewage processing, that water would not be fresh for very long. The hillsides surrounding these caves would be barren—stripped of wood for heating the cave in the cold months. The critters you’d think lived nearby, providing a food source, would have fled for “greener pastures.” In just a short time, people would be dirty, hungry, sick, and naked—not to mention broke.
How did we get from paradise to pandemonium with one wave of the wand? Read our carefully-documented, educational, and hopefully even entertaining “Environmental Utopia” study. It will expose the true goals of a variety of environmental groups. Like the layers of an onion, we will peel away the elements of American life that these groups would have us eliminate. These are many the same have things that made America great—a country people are risking their lives for and a country people are risking their lives to get into.
We believe once the truth is known, people will make more informed decisions regarding the politicians for whom they vote, the groups to whom they donate, and the choices they make for their personal lives.
In the study, we look at the four main areas of life the environmental goals will impact the most greatly: transportation, modern conveniences, health and housing.
