First, environmentalists have a good goal, a clean environment; that is, clean air, clean water, uncontaminated food, etc., etc. However, when it comes to how to achieve that goal they are stupid morons.
You see, environmentalists have tunnel vision; that is, they look at the environment and nothing else. The changes they are implementing have consequences, many of them negative. For example, they make coal companies cut back on carbon emissions. Now, that is certainly good for the environment. However, the coal companies are forced to fire people and stop hiring people. In addition, the cost of electricity goes up.
In other words, the environmentalists look at the environment but not at the totality of the lives of the human beings who inhabit that environment. The environmentalists do not have a holistic (big picture) view of things. They do not seek the best future, which includes everything that is best for everyone, but, rather, they seek the best environment, which excludes everything that is best for everyone.
Environmentalists are like a little boy frantically looking for a lost marble while the rest of his marbles fall out of his pocket.
Environmentalists need to start looking at and weighing the impact of their decisions on every part of the lives of people. For example, let’s slow down carbon emission changes so that no one gets fired, people continue to get hired, and the cost of electricity does not go up.
Finally, if you want to change things, remember, it is the Democratic Party and President Obama who are forcing through the decisions of the environmentalists. Vote the Democratic Party out of office this year, 2014, and in 2016.
