THE AXIS OF ENVIRONMENTAL EVIL
By Alan Caruba

The evil that is environmentalism will be on full display in Johannesburg, South Africa, from August 26 through September 4. The United Nations summit to be held there comes ten years after the Rio Summit that generated the hoax of global warming. It put in motion the mechanism of "sustainable environment" and the vast propaganda campaign that the Earth was running out all its natural resources. The answer, they said, was a massive restructuring of capitalism to "save" the Earth.
Restructuring isn't the right word. Elimination is the right word. The true purpose of environmentalism is the imposing of Socialism/Communism on the nations of the world. Having fought a long Cold War after WWII, Russia's Communism came crashing down along with the Berlin Wall, proving to anyone with any sense that this economic system, based on the theory of class warfare, doesn't work. The Europeans and others have failed to notice this.
On August 2nd, a letter signed by 31 men and women who devote their lives to the defense of liberty here at home and throughout the world was sent to President Bush. I was one of those who signed it. It concerned the forthcoming Johannesburg Summit.
Brought together by Myron Ebell of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, the letter began by applauding President Bush's decision not to attend the Summit in person. "Even more than the Earth Summit in 1992, the Johannesburg Summit will provide a global media stage for many of the most irresponsible and destructive elements involved in critical international economic and environmental issues."
"We also strongly support your opposition to signing new international environmental treaties or creating new international environmental organizations at the Johannesburg Summit. In our view, the worst possible outcome at Johannesburg would be taking any steps toward creating a World Environmental Organization, as the European Union has suggested."
The forthcoming Summit is based on the foundations put in place in Rio, now referred to as Agenda 21. It is quite an agenda, indeed. It is a plan for global governance.
That is why the Johannesburg Summit is so important to the forces driving it. The Summit is the essential instrument for those who would impose a global, one world, government on the United States and all other nations.
The Johannesburg Summit will send up a great hue and cry over the failure of Third World or undeveloped nations to make any progress. The reason is obvious to everyone. These nations are in the grip of despots and Communists whose sole purpose is to loot their wealth. Despite their natural resources that Capitalism would turn into employment and the enrichment of their citizens, the undeveloped nations remain undeveloped due to corruption and criminality of every description.
As the August 2nd letter to the President correctly points out, "World Bank studies have concluded that there is a direct correlation between national prosperity and environmental quality and that environmental conditions improve rapidly as poor nations become wealthier."
You can count on the liberal, mainstream media to blare forth the lies to come from the Johannesburg Summit. It remains for the US to take the lead to end the "global warming" myth and to trumpet the real answer to the world's needs, the further spread of democracy, national sovereignty, and liberty. The world needs stable governments and free markets operating under the rule of law. The objective of the Johannesburg Summit is power through the aegis of a single, global government administered by unelected Communists operating behind the curtain of the United Nations.
