Eco-Manslaughter

Interview With Paul Driessen

I've received some letters from people who say they like the Heretics Bookstore selection and wonder why the additions to it seem to have stopped. The reason is that the in upgraded version the site that I've been promising for about a hundred years, Heretics and the ManyWorlds Order Catalog will be merged into a more comprehensive "Bookstore" with more capability, and I didn't want to add to the conversion workload. But I have a bunch of titles ready to be added. Dare I say it? It should be within the next couple of weeks.

In the meantime, Henry Palka has directed me to an interview that some might be interested to read at FrontPage Magazine with Paul Driessen, author of Eco-Imperialism: Green Power, Black Death, which is one of the books currently included.

Some extracts:

-- "Radical greens are masters at devising exaggerated, imaginary and bogus eco-catastrophes--then imposing policies that give them unprecedented power, deprive other people of their freedoms and opportunities, impoverish entire nations, and cause not just impoverishment, but incalculable misery, disease and death."
-- "Niger Innis, national spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), says these policies are not merely eco-imperialism--they're eco-manslaughter."
-- "Malaria is another scourge made infinitely worse by green extremists. We used DDT to eliminate this mosquito-borne disease in the United States and Europe. Now well-off environmental activists can afford to rail against pesticide use in Africa, while they enjoy all the comforts that our high-tech, malaria-free society bestows upon them."
-- "Jurassic Park author Michael Crichton was right on target when he told San Francisco's Commonwealth Club: 'Banning DDT is one of the most disgraceful episodes in the twentieth century history of America. We knew better, and we did it anyway, and we let people around the world die, and we didn't give a damn'"
-- "'When I helped create Greenpeace in 1971,' Dr. Moore reflects, 'I had no idea it would evolve into a band of scientific illiterates who use Gestapo tactics to silence people who wish to express their views in a civilized forum. I had no idea the movement would oppose genetic engineering and other programs that could benefit mankind - and adopt zero-tolerance policies that so clearly expose its intellectual and moral bankruptcy.'"
