If you’re a neo-Hippie celebrating Earth Day today, will you even know which media-created version of reality you’re supposed to commemorate? Will it be based on a Hollywood interpretation of the Yippie movement that died long ago, or will it be the Yuppie movement that grew out of the more serious-minded Students for a Democratic Society? Today there are more versions of the history of that first Earth Day than Hollywood explanations for the Big Bang Theory.
That theory has also evolved since presenting Barbarella (aka Jane Fonda) as a 41st-century astronaut fighting to keep evil from returning to the universe, which Hollywood plans to remake for the current Enron Earth Day crowd. This group of highly intelligent environmental leaders took control of the EPA, which produced a new historical account in 1992.
“The Guardian: Origins of the EPA” is not presented as a parody. Still, it does credit that first Earth Day celebration as the motivating factor for creating the EPA. This then goes on to make the distorted claim that the original founders of the Earth Day celebration were inspired by the NASA space program. In reality, the closest that rocket-scientist ever came to any form of science was probably from the space trips attributed to the party favors being pushed by a Harvard University professor named Timothy Leary. Virtually every twisted form of stupidity embraced by the modern academic community can be summed up in a video produced about the historical account of Timothy Leary at the time of his death in 1996. This may explain why Richard Nixon, the President who created the EPA, claimed Leary was the most dangerous man in America.
Timothy Leary’s motto of “Tune In, Turn On, Drop Out” created the intellectual wasteland in high education of today. By Timothy Leary’s death, Hollywood’s Barbarella had moved on to the plantation of her 3rd husband, Ted Turner, the founder of CNN. In so many ways, that 1991 union between those two strange bed-fellows represented the blending of the old Hollywood with the new age of media that had already begun to scrub the science of the past from history.
The American people were required to focus on the affairs of media-created royalty but never question the moronic gibberish being passed off as science by their cultural heroes. As a society, we weren’t informed that the crazed views of Timothy Leary had progressed to pushing drugs on little kids, sexual identity confusion, and the embrace of what we now call Smart Grid technology. Back then, it was passed off as part of the Cultural Revolution to overthrow the man. Except by 1992, the twisted sisters of academia had become the Man at the EPA and were represented by other deep-thinkers like David Brower. Brower had founded the North Cascades Conservation Council (1957), Friends of Earth (1969), Earth Island Institute (1981), and the John Muir Institute for Environmental Studies (1997) and was the first president of the Sierra Club before being bounced out of that position for his radicalism.
Brower was the narcissistic environmental leader who liked to boast of receiving a back-handed compliment from an EPA Director, which became one of his favorite quotes about himself. “Thank God for Dave Brower. He makes it easy for the rest of us to look reasonable“, which for the EPA was a much more difficult task than most Americans might imagine.
That lack of reasonableness at the EPA can be traced back to President George H W Bush, that created the ENERGY STAR program in 1992. President Bill Clinton mandated it for use by all sub-divisions of government with an Executive Order in 1993 that essentially established a Pay-To-Play scheme marketed by the EPA to public/private partnerships with ties back to all those academic organizations that had no qualms about erecting barriers to anyone denying the intellectual superiority of Timothy Leary zealots.
In the late 1990s, Climate Solutions, a franchisee of the Earth Island Institute, became one the leading sources of the Junk Science embraced by the political establishment of the West Coast. That was tied to the West Coast Governors Global Warming Initiative, a secret pact created in 2003 after California Governor Gray Davis had been recalled from office for his role in the California Energy Crisis of 2000-2001. That’s when utility bosses used phony “Power Trades” and “Fiber Swaps” to drive up West Coast electric rates by 50%. Media outlets needed to bury that story, to protect their financial interests.
By 2023, the EPA was releasing an ENERGY STAR® ‘certified” Smart Home Energy Management System (SHEMS) to Samsung, a South Korean multinational conglomerate, for a Smart Grid application to save money, save energy and protect the climate.
The science for that Smart Grid application probably originated from the Office of Electricity, created by the Dept of Energy in 2003 to address cyber threats to our National Electric Grid from penetration by hostile foreign actors. By 2009, the Office of Electricity was offering matching funds to private parties after the Obama regime had directed billions of dollars from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act into that obscure program. The EPA claims that ENERGY STAR® is providing simple, unbiased, and creditable information that customers can rely on to make well-informed decisions but can’t recollect when Congress authorized them to get into money-making ventures. If you suffer from similar memory problems, you may want to take a couple hits of LSD to bring you up to speed with the academic community. It may help you remember which version of Earth Day to celebrate today.
