They [environmental radicals and one-world socialists] have hijacked the once respectable environmental movement to espouse and put into place, by regulation and decree, their false vision of how man should live his life, by their tenets and values, their rules, limiting his free choice and limiting the marketplace to whatever products they deem socially acceptable according to their environmental norms.

NewsBusters has a story about a British judge who has ruled that Al Gore's film is a political propaganda piece and instructed that it not be shown in public schools without accompanying guidance on the parts that are untrue/mistated:

Another great site for up-to-date global warming/climate change information:


As someone who lived under communism for most of his life, I feel obliged to say that I see the biggest threat to freedom, democracy, the market economy and prosperity now in ambitious environmentalism, not in communism. This ideology wants to replace the free and spontaneous evolution of mankind by a sort of central (now global) planning.

My first assignment: The US Coast Guard Cutter Taney, now preserved at the Baltimore Maritime Museum, is the only surviving warship afloat today from the December 7, 1941 Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor. The Cutter also participated in the battles of the North Atlantic and Okinawa, and served as a mission and gunfire support ship in Vietnam. This class of cutters were named after US Treasury secretaries. In July of 2020 the name "Taney" was removed from the cutter in response to "Woke" complaints about US Supreme Court Justice Roger B. Taney's authoring the 1857 Dred Scott decision in support of slavery.

Coast Guard patrol boat in Vietnam on which I served. Five and seven day patrols at sea in all weather conditions were common. The 82-foot long cutter carried a crew of thirteen plus a Vietnamese interpreter which made for very cramped quarters.

See how the Coast Guard operated in Vietnam at the thread linked below:
