Today’s post is at Breitbart, under the modified title “Think Global Warming Is Bad? Wait Until You Meet Sustainability“.
Anyway, to quote myself:
Problem with global warming is that eventually it must meet reality. Either the globe is warming up at horrific rates as the models have promised, or it isn’t. And if it isn’t, then those men still calling themselves “scientist”, and meaning it, must admit failure and move on…
Enter sustainability, a secular religion which is gaining converts faster than “outrage” spreads across the Internet. Rachelle Peterson and Peter Wood at the non-progressive National Association of Scholars call sustainability “Higher Education’s New Fundamentalism“, and have written a report describing this new form of paganism. Anybody interested in the future of the Western university should read it.
Sustainability…need never meet reality…It always means just what someone claiming to be more eco-holy than thou wants it to mean. True Sustainability is a goal ever disappearing into the distance, one which can never be reached, but which must be pursued with ever increasing vigor…
It isn’t only about the money. It’s about elites signaling their purity. This is why groups like the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education exist. These folks invented the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System, a trademarked “transparent, self-reporting framework for colleges and universities to measure their sustainability performance.” Just like in Kindergarten, different colored stars are awarded for better and worse performance.
You get the idea. Go there to read the rest.
Back? Not convinced sustainability is as bad as I paint it? Then may I direct your attention to the UN’s “Agenda 21” (pdf), part of that organizations plan to increase the scope and mandate of World Government.
Boy. Sounds conspiratorial, no? But if the UN isn’t interested in World Government, then what is it interested in?
We’ll have to step through this program sometime soon.
