IFLScience: Where green activists go to wish everyone (but themselves) death

IFLS Super PredatorAnyone who watched Popeye growing up will remember his phrase “That’s all I can stands, I can’t stands no more!” That is how countless fans of science ironically feel while reading stories shared by the editors at “I Fucking Love Science.” The site, which was started by Elise Andrew, has well over 21 million followers. Admittedly, much of the content is interesting. The problem is that often times what is shared is a.) political claptrap masquerading as science, or b.) ridiculously packaged for clicks instead of accuracy. To make matters worse, its doomsday fare attracts environmental activists who wish everyone (but themselves) an early death.

“We need a global pandemic that wipes out 80 percent of the human population,” says John Elliot. What are the odds that Mr. Elliot believes he should be part of the 20 percent that survives? Magic 8 ball says “Bet the wind farm on it.”

“We need to be extinct,” says Juanka El Lokopro, with the obligatory sad-face emoticon.

“Humans are a virus,” says Sara Haddox.

Go through any doomsday post shared on the “I Fucking Love Science” Facebook page, and you’ll find that it is in no short supply of self-loathing activists who are really excited for people to die — as long as it’s not their friends and family doing the dying.

IFLScience earth story

Check out the post “Humanity has already used an entire earth’s worth of resources this year,” and once you get done laughing you’ll realize that “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn actually buys into such absurdity. Sadly, the administrators closed down the comments section for that particular story. I wonder why…

Perhaps the most peculiar thing about rabid IFLS readers is that they also tend to be the most hostile towards religion. They hang on Neil “tall tale” deGrasse Tyson’s every word, which is fine, but it begs the question: If God does not exist, and we’re all just a bunch of sentient cosmic accidents, why does it matter if humans are “super predators” or if we use “an entire earth’s worth of resources” in a year?

If free will does not exist, then environmental activists really should not get mad that a dentist killed a lion in Africa for $50,000 — he couldn’t help himself. According to the atheist environmentalist, hunters are merely puppets acting out the demands of atoms and molecules bouncing around inside their heads. If there are no universal truths that can be discerned through logic and reason, then it really doesn’t matter if a man chooses to look after a rare tiger or opts for something entirely different (e.g., mounts its head on a wall).

The moral of the story here is that while IFLS is an interesting website, it should be called IFLPTS (I Fucking Love Politics, website-Traffic…and Science). Its editors tend to conflate their opinion with scientific fact, and its readers are often the kind of people who make fun of others while simultaneously wishing for global pandemics.

Who are the radicals: Guys and gals who agree with the editorial point of view of this blog, or guys like IFLS’s John “We need a global pandemic that wipes out 80 percent of the human population” Elliot? Feel free to let me know what you think in the comments section below.

Green activists wishing they were dead won’t respect your right to life

If someone asked my daughter a question about the earth and she responded, "Sometimes I wish we didn't exist," I'd be extremely concerned. No child should ever question their existence or self worth. The woman in this picture just smiles as if she was infected with something The Joker cooked up. Her silence speaks volumes about the green movement.

It was only yesterday that I covered the Sith-environmentalists who made George Lucas beg for mercy, winning a war of attrition that lasted decades. What I neglected to mention is that these same people target kids. They need another generation of storm troopers to bully the rest of us around, even if deep down they wished we were all dead. Exhibit A: the sixth grade girl Brian Sussman, author of “Eco-Tyranny,” interviews at Santa Cruz’s Earth Day Festival. I mentioned the weird self loathing environmental activists have during a recent post, but video of one of their young pupils deserves coverage.

Brian Sussman: What is the most serious threat facing humanity today?
Student: Human existence.
Brian Sussman: What are the humans doing to the planet? What are they doing to harm the earth.
Student: They’re polluting. The birds and animals eat it and then they die.
Brian Sussman: How does that make you feel?
Student: I wish they didn’t pollute…and sometimes I wish we didn’t exist.
Brian Sussman: How much of this are you learning about in your school these days?
Student: We’re learning a lot about it, but I don’t know about other schools.

Most people who watch the video zero in on the girl, who sadly has been inculcated to believe her mere existence is a burden. However, perhaps the scariest part of the video is her mother, silently grinning off to the side for the duration of the interview. She almost looks as if she was infected with some of the chemicals the Joker cooked up in Tim Burton’s Batman.

Every human being has self-worth. In fact, you have a right to be here. You have a purpose, and as such you should never feel guilty for being alive. People who walk around wishing they were dead won’t respect your right to life. They won’t think twice about messing with your basic freedoms and liberties, and so it should come as no surprise that totalitarian tendencies show up every time you run across a true believer of the green movement.

If you believe humans are a scourge upon the planet and if you believe there are “too many people,” then it only becomes a matter of time before the ends justify the means.  Green activists are scary, even if they do a good job hiding their frightening side behind smiles and heartfelt testimonials. Underneath their patty-cake hippie exteriors are ruthless people who will stop at nothing to force you into compliance with their worldview.

The solution? You have to fight harder for freedom and liberty than they do for oppression and tyranny.

George Lucas slayed by Sith-environmentalists

George Lucas has lost a war of attrition with Sith-environmentalists. If they can't find a compromise with someone as liberal as George Lucas, who can they work with? The answer: No one.

The transformation of George Lucas from creative genius to evil Sith Lord of the Star Wars universe is well documented. Up until this point I have merely pointed out that while Lucas likens George Bush to Darth Vader and often demonizes successful capitalists, it is he who sold his integrity to the highest bidders, built a merchandising empire and ruled it with an iron fist. Today, I get to chronicle the moment in time where Dark Lords, Sith-environmentalists, defeated Lucas in a war of attrition.

Since 1995, a gaggle of rabid eco-interests have relentlessly attacked the billionaire film magnate, whose productions ushered in the digital arts age, over his plans for a production complex that would house Lucasfilm, Industrial Light and Magic, and LucasArts, all beneath one roof. …

Finally, two weeks ago, the county supervisors gave the “Star Wars” creator the thumbs up to build his dream complex, though its size was to be reduced by nearly half and another green deed would have to be carried out by Lucas: fund a county-wide climate change action agenda. Lucas was ready to close the deal when officials moved to provide the opposition one last opportunity to state their case as to why the project should not be allowed. …

When the eco-warriors showed up at the County Hall with lawyers and reams of paperwork last week, George Lucas decided to finally surrender. …

“We have several opportunities to build the production stages in communities that see us as a creative asset, not as an evil empire,” stated a letter from George Lucas’ property company. “The residents [surrounding the property] have fought this project for 25 years, and enough is enough. …”

George Lucas couldn’t get much further to the left on the political spectrum if he tried, and yet the the environmentalists rode him out like a bad Tauntaun until he died, splayed his guts out in the open for all the world to see, and then left his smelly corpse on the steps of city hall in Marin County, California.

How many jobs would George Lucas have brought to the area with a brand new, state-of-the-art movie making complex? What kind of impact would it have had on the economy? We know the answers but they don’t matter, because psychotic environmentalists don’t care. They don’t care about jobs. They don’t care about property rights. They don’t care about compromise. All they care about is imposing their will on the rest of us.

If George Lucas can’t come to an agreement with green activists, who can? Nobody. His case proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that these are people who can not be reasoned with. Lucas bent over backwards to appease his critics, and all he succeeded in doing was making it easier for them to put their boots on his neck.

As the United States assesses its energy needs for the decades to come (where to drill or dig or “frack”) they should remember what happened to George Lucas not so long ago in a state not so far, far away.
