Earth Day is an annual event, celebrated on April 22, on which events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network.
It began innocently enough. In 1969 at a UNESCO Conference in San Francisco, peace activist John McConnell proposed a day to honor the Earth and the concept of peace, to first be celebrated on March 21, 1970, the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere. This day of nature’s equipoise was later sanctioned in a Proclamation written by McConnell and signed by Secretary General Thant at the United Nations. Yes, the United Nations, the same people who have also lovingly brought us: Agenda 21.
It may as well be called Cover-up and Hide Dirty-Truths Day. Because in the 40-plus years since it’s well- intentioned inception, Earth Day has transformed into another pointless opportunity for Environment Propaganda being pushed by the Elite and their Corporate Entities. The real truth about Earth Day, is that the Earth is now in hospice, a beyond-critical state which people are placed in right before they are about to die, to ease their suffering and help the people they love get ready for their passing. The doctor in charge of Earth’s critical care in the US is the EPA. The United States Environmental Protection Agency is an agency of the U.S. federal government which was created for the purpose of protecting human health and the environment by writing and enforcing regulations based on laws passed by Congress. Most of which are passed depending on who the congress-person is friends with (aka benefactors) at the time of such writing/enforcement.
To celebrate Earth Day, the EPA decided to send it’s head-honcho Gina McCarthy on a whirlwind jet-setting tour to appear on TV talk shows and other televised events, such as baseball games. This helps fortify the illusion that the EPA actually does care about the health of people, and not the monetary health and welfare of dirty industries. Not everyone was fooled by these antics, and their idiocracy was pointed out, sometimes quite humorously, everywhere from The Guardian to the Drudge Report. Because Big Government has become a Big Joke. Brietbart.com even wrote: “Administrator McCarthy will undertake a greenhouse gas laden week-long tour that will “far exceed” any benefit from her climate change proselytizing.”
“Frenetically jetting around the country appears to undercut [the] EPA’s message to ordinary Americans that they should conserve, consume less and reduce transportation pollution,” PEER Executive Director Jeff Ruch said in a statement. McCarthy will be participating in “various events to…focus on responsible steps to cut carbon pollution to slow the effects of climate change” in New York, Boston, Cleveland, Atlanta and Memphis. Other activities on the tour were also called into question, such as joining Energy Secretary Moniz to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at Tuesday’s Red Sox vs. Yankees baseball game at Boston’s Fenway Park. Ruch went on to note: “[The] EPA touts this tour as meaningful but this agency’s effectiveness in public education is not measurable. While Ms. McCarthy is an engaging individual she is hardly a charismatic figure whose mere presence galvanizes public action.” Ouch.
Appearing on John Stewart’s show in all her glory, Ms. McCarthy also said the state of the environment is “Pretty good.” Lol. I hope she celebrated with a big plate of Pacific sushi or Gulf shrimp. What planet is she from again? Also attesting to the sham of this useless EPA tour in the age of Skype were several astute posters on the Brietbart site. One comment, from bafhuggingnanarepublic, stated somewhat more accurately: “The EPA is an evil tentacle of the bloated leviathan federal Gov’t. It makes the air dirtier and water dirtier. They fly around like rock stars promoting big gov’t running your lives. If you removed Obozo the clown, his entire corrupt regime, and 2/3’s of the bloat, waste and abuse of the leviathan, only then, could the country begin to recover from this mess.”
Another comment from All-American said: “What a joke. They could fire every EPA employee and the country would actually run much better. Instead, they are pissing billions down the toilet and killing jobs.”
But by far, the best comment today was from politician and activist Cynthia McKinney, who served 6 terms in the House of Representatives and was a former Green Party presidential nominee. She wrote: “Happy Earth Day?? The U.S. government is killing cows, turtles, and people. Dropping depleted uranium bombs all over the place, including over the Great Manmade River in the desert of Libya. Stripping our forests for timber barons. And trying to ply us with cloned meat and post-BP Horizon Gulf of Mexico fish. Honey, Mother Earth is weeping today. I weep along with her and see illumination from the ALBA countries of Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, and others that have given Mother Nature Constitutional Rights. There is another way of living: another way of being.” In case you are unsure that Cynthia McKinney knows what’s up with the State of the Earth, her former science advisor certainly does, who also just happens to be my favorite Radiation Researcher Of All Time = Leuren Moret.
Whether you live in Israel or India, Bangladesh or Bangor, it has become rather obvious the Earth is in Big Trouble. Maybe not the Earth itself, but the inhabitants thereof. From our air to our water, our food to our fuel, corporate-controlled scientists can no longer hide the data and keep up appearances to protect dirty industries. People are dying, kids are getting cancer. A LOT of kids are getting cancer. In fact, cancer has now replaced accidents as the number-one cause of death in the US for children, a stunningly scary fact that slid out of mainstream news as quickly as it was snuck in. We have enormous environmental problems, and the way we have been dealing with them are not helping. On Earth Day, rather than discussing the pouring, dumping, leaking, fissioning, and burning questions the Climate Watchers, Chemtrail Specialists, Fukushima Followers, Tar-Sanders, and every other activist branch that has sprung from the endless pollution problems which overwhelm us on a daily basis have, we will cut to the chase and try to answer the most burning question of them all: How do you live with the knowledge that we may be facing extinction?
The following was recorded in November of 2013 with Carolyn Baker, PhD, on WomynAir KGNU. The rest, we will leave for another day. Because every day is Earth Day for us…the people who really do care about our beautiful planet.
