Britain’s Environmental Taliban
“Puritanism: The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy” so said Henry Louis Mencken, a sentiment shared by the Taliban, as well as the zealots of Climate Religion.
Now Britain’s Climate Change Minister Greg Barker has dubbed the Green ecomentalists and NGO’s like Greenpeace, WWF and FoE the environmental Taliban, and what is more Barker is standing by his comments.
Britain’s climate change minister has rounded on the “environmental Taliban” of green campaigners, insisting they are wrong to accuse the government of abandoning its commitment to an ambitious low carbon agenda.
“There is nothing environmental about exporting manufacturing jobs abroad,” said Greg Barker, in a sign of the dilemma ministers face as they confront mounting industry concerns about high energy prices in a weak economy, having vowed to try to be “the greenest government ever”.
Barker is echoing Chancellor George Osborne who upset Chris Huhne and the environmental Taliban in October when Osborne famously said “We’re not going to save the planet by putting our country out of business.”
Barker then said
“There is a change, and that is towards better value for money and greater financial rigour,” he said. “We recognise that in tough times the green economy doesn’t fit in a silo on its own, as some in the green lobby seem to think it should. It’s entirely right we should be mindful of the impact on consumer bills.”
Like the Taliban, the ecomentalists, Green pressure groups and NGO’s are unelected and answerable only to themselves, and in their world blind adherence to the religion is the only way, there is no room for dissent or compromise.
The Green Climate Religion believers care for nothing except their sacred beliefs, energy poverty, loss of jobs matter nothing to these people, and in the same way as the Taliban, the Green Climate Religion followers want those people who do not share their belief system, punished.
