The ‘Wilderness’ Myth

western_australia_wildernessWell do I remember Judy Edwards, the then-Minister for the Environment, proudly announcing the creation of WA’s first official wilderness area. It was 2004, and the area in question was an extensive hectarage of forest in the deep south, near the small towns of Walpole and Denmark. It was not a ‘green-fields’ reservation, but a cobbling together of existing reserves, mostly national parks, but also including some state forests. The great thing about this new wilderness area, Minister Edwards explained, was that it would “protect biodiversity and ecological processes in the long term.”

Al Gore’s sugar daddy

gore_alThe optimist sees the glass half full, the pessimist sees the glass half empty. George Soros sees the glass as the property of someone else so he knocks it over. By knocking it over he spills some of the dark secrets of his so-called Open Society Foundation, revealing how his vast fortune promotes misfortune in America. In addition to giving $33 million to Black Lives Matter, to be spent inflaming racial tension, Mr. Soros has funded Al Gore’s campaign to frighten everyone and promote the global-warming hoax. When the headlines cry curtains, the smart money figures there must be a Soros-sponsored doomsayer behind the curtain.

Al Gore, climate activists use Louisiana floods to push narrative without evidence of link

flooding_louisianaFew would be surprised if President Obama took aim at climate change during his visit Tuesday to survey the Louisiana flooding, which is why global warming skeptics are already raining on his parade.
