Always useful, I find, to keep hold of one’s old notes – never know when they’re going to come in handy.
First, the climate scammer’s post:
Of all the blithering nonsense climate deniers throw at the environmental movement, there is perhaps one criticism that does real damage – that “green is the new religion”.
We can handle the scientifically illiterate and ethically questionable attempts to undermine evidence of climatic change using cherry picked data and discredited theories, just as we can counter the increasingly futile attempts to question the importance of the green economy and the efficacy of clean technologies.
And so it goes on like most leftists – assertion after assertion after assertion but not a scrap of evidence. Never mind. Now, let’s take the “green is the new religion” and examine that. Let’s, in fact, go back to February, 2008 and my old blog:
The Danish-born Hanne Strong was inspired enough to start the Manitou Foundation, which allocates land grants and money for religious orders.
That’s fine, except that her husband is Maurice Strong:
In 1992, [he was] chairman of the United Nation’s Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro He was co-chairman of the Council of the World Economic Forum, became a member of the World Commission on Environment and Development (the Brundtland Commission), found time to serve as president of the World Federation of United Nations Associations, on the executive committee of the Society for International Development, and as an advisor to the Rockefeller Foundation and the World Wildlife Fund. Above all, he served on the Commission on Global Governance.
– Vice President Al Gore. (Of course.)
– World Bank President James Wolfensohn, formerly on the Rockefeller Foundation Board and currently on the Population Council Board; he was Al Gore’s favored candidate for the World Bank position.
– James Gustave Speth, head of the Carter Administration’s Council on Environmental Quality, crafter of the doomladen Global 2000 report, member of the Clinton – Gore transition team; he now heads the UN Development Program.
– Shridath Ramphal, formerly Secretary General of the (British) Commonwealth, now Co-Chairman of the Commission on Global Governance.
– Jonathan Lash, President of the World Resources Institute –which works closely with the World Bank, the UN Environment Program, and the UN Development Program — and Co-Chairman of the President’s Council on Sustainable Development.
– Ingvar Carlsson, former Swedish prime minister and Co-Chairman of the Commission on Global Governance.
And of course Kofi Annan.
The purpose of the World Service Intergroup is to generate a focused, conscious and deliberate intergroup effort to specifically assist the Externalization of the Hierarchy and the Reappearance of the Christ.
Religious scholars will recognize immediately that talk of “The Christ” or World Teacher his nothing to do with the Christian Messiah but a different chap called Maitreya or Djwahl Kuhl who, in the Christian religion has another name and who the Rolling Stones had sympathy for. Strong was at Findhorn together with the Lucis Trust and you can do your own research on them.
Gordon Davidson and Corrine McLaughlin, who set up the WSI in Washington, D.C. in 1995 were also instrumental in setting up the Valdez Principles, committing corporate America to the Gorean Eco principles now in vogue today. Here is his mindset:
The Shamballa force is in reality Life itself; and Life is a loving synthesis in action. We also used the Six Laws and Principles of the New Age to lead us towards creating a vision of how these principles might create patterns for the New Civilization humanity will be constructing over the next 2500 years.
The environmental movement therefore has an occult angle influencing it which sets it apart from the mindset of most people who see themselves as at least partly green. Shamballa force would seem to have little to do with recycling your bottles and using eco-friendly lamps and yet the connection is forced at high levels of society.
“Green” looks not only the new religion but very much the old as well. Welcome to Blavatsky’s Brave New World. Interestingly, I made reference to a series by a young Scotsman in World Core Curriculum and golly gosh, what have we here – none other than Alice Bailey, Blavatsky’s heir.
Reference was made to Robert Muller, a major figure in the World Core Curriculum and his reliance on Bailey. One commenter denied point blank that there was any such connection, which was interesting because I would have argued whether Muller was that important or not. He never questioned Muller’s influence. Just the connection with Bailey.
… said that some evangelical parents may need monitoring by the State because they might intimidate their children with ideas about G-d, sin and hell. She was playing, of course, on the extreme aspects played up by the media over parents withdrawing children from sex education lessons because they wish to handle it in their own way.
Johnson went on to suggest that she wanted State officials to be able to interview homeschooled children without their parents being present. The government, in a short space of time, revised the homeschooling legislation three times, as too many were slipping through loopholes.
Wean the child from the mother, cut out the father and:
We’ve strayed a little from the green movement but there’ve been no logical jumps – these are the same group of people throughout the post. Going back to our Business Green blog which indignantly claimed Green was no religion, the author goes on to dissociate himself from James Lovelock.
Lovelock, as a Royal Society member , is their Gaia man. That’s Science today? Seem to recall some recent criticisms of the RS. His thesis:
In Lovelock’s 2006 book, The Revenge of Gaia, he argues that the lack of respect humans have had for Gaia, through the damage done to rainforests and the reduction in planetary biodiversity, is testing Gaia’s capacity to minimize the effects of the addition of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
In their book, Spiritual Politics [they] write:
God Imminent, the Divinity within all life, is today becoming more widely recognized in the new spiritual, ecological, and feminist movements that are working to empower the individual, support human rights, and honor the sacredness of the Earth as Gaia, the ancient Mother Goddess.
In the book, which is endorsed by Noel Brown of the U.N. Environmental Program, McLaughlin and Davidson write about the Meditation Room in U.N. headquarters, describing it as “the focus for the energies of a unified planet and humanity, and for right relations among all kingdoms of life.”
Green is not a religion? It gets worse:
The official “mission” of the Church of All Worlds, the largest of the pagan movements in the U.S., involves mobilizing the force of Gaia or Gaea. The mission is “to evolve a network of information, mythology and experience that provides a context and stimulus for reawakening Gaea, and reuniting her children through tribal community dedicated to responsible stewardship and evolving consciousness.”18 The church has what are called “nests” or “proto-nests” of members in the U.S. and other countries. Its magazine, Green Egg, publishes articles such as “Altars & Ecology,” in which readers are advised how to “worship the Earth as the Mother God, Gaia, and profess Her sacred nature…”
Well, if green is not the new religion, as our apoplectic friend states, then it is surely one of the very oldest – ask any pagan.
