Friends don’t let friends be Green

In another totally predictable case we see “Green Science” (which is neither) hurting people and killing the weakest among us while most emphatically not saving the planet. (warning, unsafe, NY Times link)

According to the company’s proposal to join a United Nations clean-air program, the settlers living in this area left in a “peaceful” and “voluntary” manner.

Oh yes, they always claim it was all about teh hummingbirds and unicorns, but it’s usually about teh stalinism and poor people starving even more (real poor people, the ones who die if they can’t get their weekly egg).

People here remember it quite differently.

Yeah, it’s funny how often that works when greenies get involved in reality land

“I heard people being beaten, so I ran outside,” said Emmanuel Cyicyima, 33. “The houses were being burnt down.”

Other villagers described gun-toting soldiers and an 8-year-old child burning to death when his home was set ablaze by security officers.

But it’s to save Mother Gaia and has absolutely nothing to do with making Al Gore rich.

Update: Forgot this quote

According to a report released by the aid group Oxfam on Wednesday, the Ugandan government and a British forestry company forcibly expelled more than 20,000 people from their homes here in recent years, emblematic of a global scramble for arable land.

Man, I hate “environmentalists” anymore, all they do is take my money and get people killed doing it.

  1. Across Africa, some of the world’s poorest people have been thrown off land to make way for foreign investors, often uprooting local farmers so that food can be grown on a commercial scale and shipped to richer countries overseas.

    But in this case, the government and the company said the settlers were illegal and evicted for a good cause: to protect the environment and help fight global warming.

    Welcome to the New Colonialism™!!

    Wow. Africa has the UN to thank for so many things these past decades, and now this. It has fashioned it’s very own boom-stick out of The Kyoto Protocol. All these centuries later, and British and European companies have gleefully buggered “the uncivilized” under the guise of God, Queen/King, and Country, and now they’re doing it under the implicit authority of the United Nations.

    And they call US the assholes of the world. It’s making me feel kinda rage-y in a bad way. I think I’ll go watch cat videos for the next 48 hours or so.

    The kicker, of course, is that they are not even going to use this land for any useful purpose. They plan to grow useless Eucalyptus trees as part of a carbon-trading scam. These trees provide no food or lumber. All they do is grow. And blow up, when there is a forest fire.

    So poor Ugandans are going to starve so Algore can buy a carbon credit to offset the emissions from his next flight on a private jet or if he decides to build another wing on his house. Nice…

      That’s why I so often say, “Green science is neither”.
      It’s neither green nor science.

      Perhaps there was a time when it was, but it was long before I started paying attention.
