Alaska Seems Stuck in a Dark Age of Nature-Trashing Flower-Stompers

Letters  / Anchorage Daily News / March 8, 2005

A day hardly goes by when one does not see an environmental hate letter or commentary in the Daily News. Their venality is a throwback to the D-2 days if not worse.

The trash-the-planet movement has spawned two generations of eco-bullies like U.S. Rep. Don Young, the Stevenses and the Murkowskis ministered by an endless parade of career flower-stompers like consultant Paula Easley, Anchorage Times editors Paul Jenkins and Bill Tobin, and former Murkowski staffer Dennis Fradley.

Do these people have souls? The very people who are on the evil bandwagon see nothing evil about destroying an entire planet. It is even unpatriotic to be an environmentalist because it is bad for business.

Alaska is stuck in a Dark Age, and every day is environmental hate day in Alaska.

Woody Allen said, "More than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroad. One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness, the other to total extinction. Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly." Many of us who have watched the world's environmental holocaust unfold have concluded that humans have not gotten any smarter since they started walking upright (we would even get an argument on this score). We collectively have learned nothing from our mistakes.

Our consolation will be that nature bites back, and that many of those who have overpopulated and plundered the planet will reap what they have sown.
