This year I have already:
- Ordered a few rainforests to be leveled for condos where even slightly used toilet paper will be recycled. Green Capitalism. Doncha love it?
- Drilled for oil in my backyard. Found some. My Hummer is running great and the refinery on my south lawn isn't going to hurt me at all.
- Worn fur, proudly. All it takes is a raised hand to PETArds, if you are wearing rabbit or mink. As much as they want to kill YOU, they don't want to hurt the little furry critters. (Moxie.nu, 04/18/05.)
It is a bit strange that we don't "celebrate" this kind of day in Sweden yet. In America it has been going on for 35 years. The Green Party (a.k.a the "watermelons") in Sweden has been pretty influential in the political debate. Here is an excerpt from my post, EARTH DAY: THE ANTI-MAN DAY.
Have you survived the day? It is scary to listen to how Bush and Kerry are saying to each other: "I'm Greener Than You Are."
Here is an excerpt from Michael Berliner's article, Earth Day's Anti-Human Agenda:
"The fundamental goal of environmentalism is not clean air and clean water; rather, it is the demolition of technological/industrial civilization. Environmentalism's goal is not the advancement of human health, human happiness, and human life; rather, it is a subhuman world where "nature" is worshipped like the totem of some primitive religion."

From Seattle Post-Intelligencer:
Firebombings early yesterday at two homes under construction in Sammamish are believed to have been the work of a serial arsonist or arsonists aligned with the Earth Liberation Front -- described by the FBI as one of the top domestic terrorism groups in the country. (SeattlePI.com, 04/14/05.)
An aspiring physicist was sentenced to more than eight years in prison on Monday and ordered to pay $3.5 million for his role in a spree of arson and vandalism that targeted gas-guzzling Hummers and other sports utility vehicles.
Rejecting pleas for clemency from William Cottrell, a 24-year-old doctoral candidate in physics at the California Institute of Technology, U.S. District Judge Gary Klausner added more time to the sentence after finding that Cottrell was trying to sway consumers with his anti-SUV message.
The slogans Cottrell spray-painted onto vehicles included "Fat Lazy Americans," "No Respect for Earth" and "SUV = Terrorism." (Reuters, 04/18/05.)
