Paul Driessen, senior policy analyst for the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow: About the most charitable thing one can say about Nazi ethics is that they were perversely conflicted and schizophrenic. People clearly occupied a lower niche than animals on their “moral and ethical” hierarchy. Sadly, the same observations apply to the more rabid elements of modern environmentalism. Ironically, in the name of “keeping fossil fuels in the ground” to “save the planet” from “dangerous manmade climate change” and other imagined calamities, radical greens also demand actions that would ultimately destroy the very habitats and wildlife they claim to love. Their own words underscore their attitudes.

Michel Gay: La loi sur la transition énergétique pour la croissance verte (LTECV) a été votée le 22 juillet 2015 en conformité avec les engagements du candidat Hollande. En effet, cette loi : - consacre la réduction du nucléaire à 50 % de la production d'électricité, - pénalise le recours à l’électricité, dont plus de 90% de la production nationale n'émet pas de gaz à effet de serre, au profit du gaz (importé), - favorise outrageusement les éoliennes et les panneaux photovoltaïques, - engage un irréaliste et coûteux programme de réduction de consommation d'énergie de 20% d’ici 2030, et de 50% d'ici 2050.

Paul Driessen, Senior Policy Analyst, Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow: It’s amazing how we are bombarded by accusations that our technologies and living standards offend basic principles of fair trade, human rights, sustainable development and social justice. Except, it seems, when the technologies are electric vehicles, wind turbines, solar cells, cell phones and other gadgets so beloved by progressives and environmentalists. ... Where are the demands for justice, the student protests, sit-ins and boycotts against Nokia, Apple, Vestas and Tesla? Why are Fair Trade and Living Wage activists not speaking out on behalf of rare earth workers in Baotou, Inner Mongolia – or parents and children mining cobalt and lithium under even more horrendous conditions in Congo?
