Failed warnings of doom do not deter new ones.
THURSDAY is Lenin's Birthday. It will be celebrated around the world as Earth Day, a holiday begun by Democratic Sen. Gaylord Nelson in 1970 to keep anti-capitalist sentiment going after the Vietnam War ended.
The Earth Day trippers have run out of pollution and are now attacking carbon dioxide - the air we exhale.
Which reminds me, the biggest polluters in the world turned out to be the communist states of China, the Soviet Union and the Eastern bloc nations.
The Aral Sea is 90 percent smaller than it was before the Soviets came into power.
The concern back in the 1970s was global cooling. We would freeze to death.
To today's devotees of the notion that evil capitalism is destroying the world and melting glaciers and the polar icecaps, Happy Lenin's Birthday.

Nikita Khrushchev, Soviet Premier after Joseph Stalin, decided in 1955 that the country should celebrate their national political philosophy, communism. He chose as the day, April 22, Vladimir Lenin’s birthday, a tribute to the founder of the Soviet Union.
When environmentalists decided that the Earth deserved a day of celebration in 1970, they could have picked any day of the year, as no one knows the exact day date of the Earth’s birthday. They chose Lenin’s birthday, just as Khrushchev had done. Was this just a coincidence? I think not.
These enviroloonies are confusing the hell out of me.
—I have an excess tree already picked out for execution on “Earth Day” which I will do while burning trash in a manner carefully arranged to put as much CO2 into the atmosphere as possible-—
I don’t remember this Earth Day until a few years ago. We have to go and clean up the town up the road from the base this year. Yeah. Well at least we are having a BBQ afterward. Even the military is participating this year.
When is Private Property Rights Day? I must have missed it.
At least, James Cameron’s Avatar is coming out on DVD on Lenin’s birthday as well. Wow! I can’t wait! /HEAVY sarcasm!!!>
F*!k Gaylord Nelson, Lenin, Stalin, Khrushchev and all their fellow travelers.

Failed warnings of doom do not deter new ones..........ain’t that the ever lovin truth
Happy (Lenin’s B)earthday?
I never knew this. But that’s obviously why they picked that date (which is not any “earth” event, such as an equinox).
The concern back in the 1970s was global cooling. We would all freeze to death.
Yes, I’m old enough to remember the projections of the ice caps covering the globe...funny how things have changed, isn’t it?
I’ll bet Obama will be celebrating comrade Lenin’s first day on Earth.
The socialists need to do something about that volcano!
Burn a tire on Earth Day.
