Synopsis

Richard O'Leary questions the validity of some (or much) of the agenda of the environmental movement in the U.S., and documents his case with detailed examples of the enormous dangers created by uncontrolled bureaucratic Kafka-esque regulators operating in the name of the higher good. Such regulations and actions sometimes have effects opposite to what was intended, serving neither the environment nor society. As more and more of suburban America is discovering, re-introduced or protected species (bears, deer, geese, etc.) that outstrip the available habitat create safety and sanitation problems for themselves and for humans. O'Leary weaves together a passionate narrative with news articles, studies by the National Center for Public Policy Research and others, and profiles of families whose homes and livelihoods have been destroyed (for no apparent purpose) in the name of environmental protection. Most of the events occurred in the West, but the lessons may apply nationwide.

Excerpt

In its early days, the environmental movement tapped a current of concern in the public who saw their woods and water being dirtied or destroyed, and spurred a healthy interest in developing cleaner, more efficient practices. But the ideology of the early movement has been kidnapped by extremists. Now, working under the cover of some of America’s most respected institutions, these extremists have implemented national legislation and local laws that needlessly and pointlessly restrict Americans’ rights and in many cases deprive them of a livelihood.

Environmental policy makers, and those who carry out the dictums of these elitist groups and individuals, have developed a strategy that incorporates a range of “hot button” issues that are designed to win public support. These issues are used to carry out their meticulously engineered campaign to achieve a hidden agenda, objectives which are inimical to the American way of life and the sovereignty of the United States of America. This book has been written to expose that agenda, a task that should have already been accomplished by our mainstream media — but, unfortunately, has not been.

The copious information that the movement disseminates appears, on the surface, to describe the noblest of moral causes, but this facade is carefully fabricated, a disguise to conceal the true agenda of the deep ecologists who spearhead this massive and extremely powerful juggernaut. If they were what they represent themselves to be, I would be one of their most ardent supporters; but they are not.
