Not In My Backyard!

Jonathan Carter, director of the Forest Ecology Network, centered in Lexington Township, Maine, says his organization opposes a giant First Wind, wind turbine project planned for a section of western Maine stretching over mountain tops for 25 miles. This writer couldn’t agree more with Jonathan Carter’s opposition as described in a recent column in the Sun Journal, with the exception of Carter’s belief that climate change is the result of man’s negative influence.

However, rational thinking leads one to realize that this opposition of a glorified environmental organization stinks of “not in my back yard” (NIMBY)/. A visit to the Forest Ecology Network (FEN) and one quickly realizes that not only is FEN an environmental espouses but it openly glorifies the activism and accomplishments of environmentalism.

Environmentalism, a manufactured scheme by the Club of Rome, i.e. a global matrix of manufactured consent, is responsible for the push to blight the landscape with invasive wind turbines. If any organization is to bow down to a worship environmentalism, as it appears FEN does, then doesn’t it become hypocritical to oppose a wind project in one’s own backyard?

Certainly, the purpose of this article is not to promote the use of wind power. No! As a matter of fact I vehemently oppose it and am glad to see an organization like FEN also oppose it. The purpose here is to help expose the faults and the misleading perceptions of what environmentalism is or perhaps more accurately what it isn’t. Environmentalism is the father of wind energy and if one fails to see the stark realizations that accompany this creation of a monster that runs antithetical to protecting the environment, then we have a case of blind idol worship, missing any ability to think and reason. If FEN is going to oppose this wind energy project, I certainly hope they use the same scrutiny with other environmental projects.

“In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.”
