Some Irreverent Questions

  • If "progress" is a euphemism for endless economic growth, and growth devours nature, then why do so many "environmentalists" call themselves "progressive"?

  • If "conserving" is protecting something from damage, destruction or depletion, then why do so many destroyers of nature call themselves "conservative"?

  • Why is it that those who build machines to destroy nature are celebrated as "entrepreneurs," while those who tear down such machines are condemned as environmental "extremists"?

  • Why is the destruction of life support not called "extreme"?
