For anyone who doesn’t get it yet, Scientific American spells it out in words of one syllable. Environmentalist ideology boils down to the ultimate dream of progressives: one-world totalitarian government from which no human can escape.
A policy article authored by several dozen scientists appeared online March 15 in Science to acknowledge this point: “Human societies must now change course and steer away from critical tipping points in the Earth system that might lead to rapid and irreversible change. This requires fundamental reorientation and restructuring of national and international institutions toward more effective Earth system governance and planetary stewardship.”
The report summarized 10 years of research evaluating the capability of international institutions to deal with climate and other environmental issues, an assessment that found existing capabilities to effect change sorely lacking. The authors called for a “constitutional moment” at the upcoming 2012 U.N. Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio in June to reform world politics and government.

In principle, species-wide alteration in basic human behaviors would be a sine qua non…
In other words, what would be a sine qua non (an essential element or condition) to inflict poverty and socialism on the entire planet in the name of moonbats’ global warming fantasies would be a brutal planetary regime able to impose its insane will on every aspect of every human’s life.
The green ideology of the Establishment Left isn’t just flakey. It is raw evil.
