- In 2009, our U.S. Congress gave one million green cards
to foreigners as they imported them into our country as legal immigrants.
Our Congress added another 450,000 work permits for foreigner workers.
- At the same time, 15-20 million Americans could not and
cannot secure a job. Another 35 million Americans subsist on food stamps.
Foreclosures cost millions of Americans their homes. We stand $12 trillion
- And yet, the Congress imports 1.5 million immigrants
- In the meantime, the American press covers water shortages
around the world, 18 million humans starving to death globally annually,
climate change, species extinction, and a host of accelerating dilemmas
facing humanity in the 21stcentury.
- Nonetheless, the American media, leaders and major corporate
organizations won't touch America's steepening predicament visa vie legal
and illegal immigration. And, more ironic if not oxymoronic, environmental
organizations like the Sierra Club pretend to be saving the environment,
but in fact become enablers of continued irresponsibility on a grand scale.
- YOU MUST CHOOSE REALITY OVER DELUSION
- My Canadian friend and colleague, Tim Murray, gave me
a gut busting reality check with this interview. Canada, much like the
United States, finds itself being overrun by immigration-so much so-a transformation
has robbed Canada of its linguistic and cultural identity. It's no longer
Canada, but, an uncomfortable polyglot of multiculturalism. At the same
time, its delicate environment declines with each new stamp of a visa card
from desperate immigrants fleeing degraded conditions from their home countries.
- However, the Sierra Club along with the Nature Conservancy,
Greenpeace, World Wildlife Fund, Audubon Society, National Wildlife Federation
and a dozen more environmental groups ignore the core issue.
- Therefore, Murray created the "Sierra Clubbers Anonymous". As
a signal of this commitment, you must pledge to follow the 12 steps to
- Step 1: Honesty
- After many years of denial, recovery can begin when with
one simple admission of being powerless to regain your intellectual independence
without reaching out for truth and that a self-righteous Sierran yuppie
who is semi-literate in the laws of sustainability is more a fool than
a so-called blue collar redneck who has no pretensions of superior consciousness.
- Step 2: Faith
- You must first have faith in biophysical laws and that
the Commandment "Thou Shalt Not Trespass Carrying Capacity" trumps
anything that Moses brought down from Mount Sinai or the optimism of the
green apostles of false hope.
- Step 3: Surrender
- You must surrender your dependence on Sierra Club newsletters
and set out on the lonely journey of educating yourself. You must start
by understanding the exponential function and the limits to growth. No
feat of human ingenuity can conjure up extinct species, replenish cheap
oil or rehabilitate mined out soils without the use of fossil fuel-based
- Step 4: Soul Searching
- There is a saying in the 12-step programs that recovery
is a process, not an event. The same can be said for this step -- more
will surely be revealed. You must conduct a fearless moral inventory.
Did that solar panel you installed create more energy than was involved
in making it? Did that so-called smart car you bought not involve an industrial
process, was ore not mined , smelted and transported to a factory to rendezvous
with rubber derived from fallen trees? Were not the gains you made by
riding a bike to work wiped out by taking that annual plane flight to Mexico
- Step 5: Integrity
- Probably the most difficult of all the steps to face,
Step 5 is also the one that provides the greatest opportunity for personal
growth, the only kind that is benign. You must examine the financial reports
of any environmental organization that you belong to and follow the money
trail. You must renounce any group like the Sierra Club, Nature Conservancy
or the David Suzuki Foundation which accepts corporate donations.
- Step 6: Acceptance
- The key to Step 6 is acceptance accepting that
you have been WILLFULLY ignorant and tolerant of corruption in the environmental
movement. You must accept that you need an education. Start with Christine
MacDonald's "Green Inc" which documents how much mainstream environmental
organizations are on the corporate take. Then take a look at Canada and
ask, why is the Royal Bank funding the David Suzuki Foundation and Nature
Conservancy? What are these green organizations doing, or more to the point, not doing
and not saying to get that money?
- Step 7: Humility
- The spiritual focus of Step 7 is humility, realizing
that your smug superiority complex is unwarranted. That the average logger
or fish farm worker is no more responsible than you are for the system
that we are trapped in.
- Step 8: Willingness
- Making a list of those that have been harmed by your
support of false gods. The first casualty is the farmland we have lost
to development fuelled by our having the highest population growth rate
in the G8 group. And the many hundreds of species that are now at risk
of extinction as a result. You must include on that list the fact that
the environmental groups you blindly supported by their unwillingness to
bite the corporate hand that feeds them have refused to fight population
and economic growth and therefore made meeting Kyoto targets impossible.
- Step 9: Forgiveness
- You must ask for the forgiveness of those you have slandered
and race-baited, and from the constituency that you have betrayed by allowing
them to think that your group was a watchdog guarding the environment.
- Step 10: Maintenance
- Nobody likes to admit to being wrong. But you must continually
remind yourself that your blind obedience to a corrupt, money-grubbing
corporate lackey for so many years demands your consistent apologies.
- Step 11: Making Contact
- You must make contact with reality and with knowledge
that your organization and the editors of the politically correct rags
that you read do not allow you to see. As the Romans said, "nullius
verba"---take no one's word. Do your own research.
- Step 12: Service
- You can make amends for some of the damage that you have
unwittingly done with your ill-informed good intentions by redirecting
your donations and your efforts to projects and causes that make a difference.
Deploy your money to countries like Thailand or Madagascar that are serious
about birth control programs.
- Canadian journalist and environmental leader Tim Murray
rings a wake-up bell on Canada's growing predicament. Shortly, he will
publish a book: Overwhelming Canada. It will mirror Australian writer
Mark O'Connor'sOverwhelming Australia. Both books coincide with a third
book: America on the Brink: The Next Added 100 Million Americans.
- What do all three books enjoy in common? They chronicle
the ramifications of mass immigration into first world countries by third
world immigrants from a line that grows by 77 million annually. Nothing
positive will be recorded by world historians concerning this massive "human
Katrina" and its effects on first world civilizations within the next
- By the way, your U.S. Congress just imported another
240,000 immigrants in January of this year! How does that taste? Like
ashes in your mouth?
