    Moore comes at the issue from a far-left perspective: Michael Moore presents Planet of the Humans, a documentary that dares to say what no one else will this Earth Day — that we are losing the battle to stop climate change on planet earth because we are following leaders who have taken us down the wrong road — selling out the green movement to wealthy interests and corporate America. This film is the wake-up call to the reality we are afraid to face: that in the midst of a human-caused extinction event, the environmental movement’s answer is to push for...
  • Earth Day Dunking on Humans

    On the 50th anniversary of Earth Day -- something of an ecological feast day -- journalistic, philanthropic and religious leaders echoed the spirit of the original celebration: The human race is a cancer on the planet. In the sternly reinforced quiet of stay-at-home orders, this Team Earth reveled in how the world is such a better, cleaner, calmer place when most humans can't commute or commit tourism. CBS reporter John Blackstone found a silver lining in the pandemic, saying, "From goats in a deserted town in Wales to lions lounging on a road in South Africa, nature seems to be...

    A CNN reporter thinks he found the silver lining in the global coronavirus pandemic. Bill Weir claims there seems to be a “perception” that the temporary shutdown of industries across the globe “has helped humanity buy some time when it comes to global warming.” He went on to link the origin of the virus to excessive deforestation, citing warnings from virologists “that an invisible enemy would come out of the jungles if we just kept cutting all of them down, and they were right.”

    This year, 2020, marks the fiftieth anniversary of Earth Day. When I was growing up—not that long ago I might add—Earth Day was mostly focused on community trash pickups, planting trees, and other activities meant to make the entire planet, and one’s neighborhood, more beautiful and less polluted. My, how things have changed. In recent years, it seems that Earth Day has transformed into a day less about nurturing Mother Nature and more of an occasion for angry environmentalists to point their fingers at anyone and everyone who opposes their radical agenda. According to, the mission of Earth Day...

    Today is Earth Day, a day that was founded in part by a murderer known as the "Unicorn Killer" (Ira Einhorn). Wikipedia, along with several other sources I've found, has written him out of the history--a couple sources just dusted him to the side. He committed homicide against his girlfriend, too gruesome for me to detail. Long live Earth Day.

    Since 1970, Earth Day has provided an opportunity for all Americans to come together to celebrate the majestic natural beauty of our Nation and the world. The United States is blessed with breathtaking and plentiful natural wonders and resources, providing recreation and sustenance to millions throughout our country. On the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, we pay tribute to our Nation’s long history of environmental stewardship and conservation, and we reaffirm our commitment to protecting our natural treasures for the benefit and enjoyment of all Americans. Following in the rich tradition of environmental leaders like Gifford Pinchot and President Theodore...

    Almost overnight, the concept of man-made global warming has become an accepted fact. Debate on this issue is rarely tolerated and millions of people are fearful that man’s activities are leading to a gradual global catastrophe. Cries to reduce auto emissions, burn less fossil fuels and shrink our carbon footprint have made people uncertain what the future holds for planet earth. The Bible however, speaks quite clearly of God’s sovereign control over the earth’s climate. Jesus said, “That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil...

    (In light of the radical Left's Earth Day and New Green Deal). Much of ancient Israel’s plight, well documented throughout the Old Testament, was its insatiable thirst for pagan nature worship. This of course was in direct violation of the first two commandments of the Mosaic Law which commanded Israel not to worship any other false god or idol (Exodus 20:3-4). The reason why Israel was forbidden to worship other gods, the natural created order, and idols, was given in Genesis. Genesis 1 presents to the reader an ultimate Creator who made the universe out of nothing through His omnipotent...

    Happy Anniversary EARTH DAY! Hard to believe it’s been 50 years since the first in 1970.Ever since that watershed event people have been looking for ways to shut down civilization and take us back to pre-industrial times when all the women were strong, all the men were good-looking, and all the children were above average. As long as it doesn’t impact the way they live too much that is.I remember the first Earth Day: I was in college, it was a beautiful spring day and celebrating Earth seemed like a great excuse to skip classes. I don’t remember exactly how...

    Normally, in spring, middle school students do science experiments. These days, they often do them in honor to the 50th anniversary of the first Earth Day in April 1970, which will be held on April 22 this year. Here's an idea for one, which can even comply with social distancing rules as students can do this in their homes with a computer. All it involves are data and graphs. No additional supplies from stores are necessary. The purpose of the experiment is to support Democrat policies as they seek to stop people from using oil. The students would believe that...

    More than three decades before Greta Thunberg was born — the Swedish environmental activist on climate change — more than 20 million Americans participated in the first Earth Day on April 22, 1970. We now look back at quotes from Earth Day, Then and Now,” by Ronald Bailey, May 1, 2000 of the spectacularly wrong apocalyptic predictions from Earth Day 1970. Considering the current doomsday predictions scaremonger activists are verbalizing about global warming that will result in the demise of civilization within the next decade, many of those unscientific 1970 predictions are being reincarnated on today’s social and news...

    A former hippie guru who lived the high life in Europe for years after murdering his ex-girlfriend in Philadelphia in the 1970s has died in prison. Ira Einhorn, 79, died early Friday in a state prison in western Pennsylvania of natural causes, according to Susan McNaughton, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Corrections. The death at SCI-Laurel Highlands was not related to the COVID-19 virus, she said.

    In 100 days exactly, we will strike again. On April 22, the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, young people and adults across the United States will once again take to the streets to demand climate action. Earth Day will launch three consecutive days of massive strikes, fulfilling our promise to take the climate strike movement beyond what we achieved on September 20. Inaction is not an option. This has been the hottest decade on record and last year was the second hottest ever. Since the bushfire season began in November, fires in Australia have killed 25 people, wiped out over...

    Americans will need to cut their average consumption of beef by about 40% and Europeans by 22%, for the world to continue to feed the 10 billion people expected to live on this planet in 2050, according to a new report. That means each person could have about a burger and a half each week. This calculation comes from the World Resources Institute, a global research nonprofit that supports better use of natural resources to sustain a growing population. Its research looks at agriculture, the climate crisis, poverty and gender, among other topics. Its final "Creating a Sustainable Food Future"...

    As activists around the world recently celebrated Earth Day with warnings about the awful state of our planet, now seems like the right time to share the good news that actually -- contrary to countless dire predictions -- we're not running out of resources. In fact, the late economist and scholar Julian Simon was right: People again and again have innovated "their way out of resource shortages." As Mark Perry of the American Enterprise Institute reminds us in an article about "18 spectacularly wrong predictions made around the time of the first Earth Day in 1970," back in 1969, Stanford...

I don’t like driving SUVs or Ford pickup trucks, but this is America; buy what you want and when you want it. We’re the Saudi Arabia of coal. We have solid natural gas reserves. Drill, baby, drill!

    Donald Trump issued on Monday an Earth Day proclamation that omitted any mention of climate change or the cavalcade of environmental threats posed by deforestation, species loss and plastic pollution. The president chose instead to praise the benefits of a “strong market economy”. Trump praised the “abundant beauty and life-sustaining bounty” of the American environment but did not echo growing warnings from scientists over rising temperatures or the precipitous decline of many species. “Environmental protection and economic prosperity go hand in hand,” Trump said in his message for Earth Day, a global event held to support environmental protection annually since...

    FULL TITLE: 99.9999% chance humans are causing global warming, and other science-based facts on climate change for Earth Day. Climate change is real and increasingly a part of our daily lives. New research and studies out in just the past six months highlight the latest facts about the human-caused shift to our global weather systems and its effects on our planet. First among them, there's no longer any question that rising temperatures and increasingly chaotic weather are the work of humanity. There's a 99.9999% chance that humans are the cause of global warming, a February study reported. That means we've...
