Questioning Environmentalism and the Green Movement

I stumbled on this new (to me) slayer of sacred cows, a former Irish school teacher who became a journalist and — happened to report on an intriguing story about “evil Canadians” starting a mining company in Romania. The story she found, was not the one she thought she would discover, and it changed her life forever, lighting the fire for further exploration which has brought her to Madagascar, Uganda, the Amazon Rain Forest and other places where environmentalists protest and block development or ban pesticides. She is Filmmaker/producer Ann McElhinney, and she’s passionate about exposing the hypocrisy and lies and anti-human agenda fueling Greenpeace and various radical environmentalism causes. Now, I used to donate to Greenpeace, this speech and her testimony gave me a lot to consider.

Malaria kills more people in the world now than any other disease, mostly children in African countries. She discusses DDT and malaria — mines, and fossil fuels. Really worth watching – what more can I say? It gave me a lot to think about.

The presentation was recorded at the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute’s 2011 Western Women’s Summit held in the Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara CA.

      I know, I just love that I stumbled on her, thanks to Kitman TV. She’s just amazing and so passionate, emotions close to the surface and a real truth teller. I had no idea, to tell you the truth– but I guess I haven’t looked very carefully yet at the environmental movement. I am not a big booster or believer in global warming however. I do my recycling and I am certainly in favor of attempting to save species and so on, but she makes some very good points like – what about people? And, what about African children dying of malaria slowly and painfully? The mine story is also amazing and in other tapes she goes into it further. There is a virulent anti-capitalism running beneath the surface of the green movement and she is quite right to point this out.
