Lying green exposed

Gerd Leipold, retiring leader of Greenpeace, admits that he organization fabricated claims that Arctic ice will melt by 2030.

But he "defended the organization’s practice of 'emotionalizing issues' in order to bring the public around to its way of thinking and alter public opinion." Put another way, he defended the organization's practice of lying to try to mislead the public into backing their initiatives.

Not only that, he dropped his guard long enough to admit that the true goal of the green movement has nothing to do with the planet or the environment: "Leipold said later in the BBC interview that there is an urgent need for the suppression of economic growth in the United States and around the world."

Environmentalism is not a pro-planet ideology, it is an anti-human ideology. Environmental concerns, some real but most imagined, are just an excuse for government to exert complete control over people's lives, to crush freedom and individualism. With all due respect to Islamic fascism, it is the great totalitarian threat of the 21st century.
