How Environmentalism Has Kept Communism Alive

by | Nov 27, 2020 |

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It is time to face reality: communism is back. It has reappeared nearly everywhere under the guise of radical environmentalism. This abhorrent cult puts nature well above mankind primarily for the purpose of controlling if not subjugating us all in the name of protecting nature, ecosystems, or ‘Gaia.’ Take your pick; either way it’s about preservation, not conservation. Resource development, therefore, becomes tantamount to high crime in the eyes of radical environmentalists.

Part 1:  How Environmentalism Has Kept Communism Alive
Part 2:  The Crossroads of Communism and the Radical Environmental Movement
Part 3:  Human Puppeteers Calling the Shots for Mother Nature

In an outstanding new book from The Epoch Times news outlet titled “How the Spector of Communism Is Ruling Our World,” the authors state:

“communist elements have commandeered much of the environmental movement to advance their own political agendas. Communism’s infiltration of environmentalism has been underway virtually since the beginning of the environmental movement”. 

An interesting data point was when former President of the Soviet Union, previously General Secretary of the USSR’s Communist Party, Mikhail Gorbachev, launched the new environmental organization Green Cross International.
The Epoch Times’ book’s most lucid and penetrating statement, which we hope we can learn to recognize, is: 

“Communism must create or use an enemy that threatens all of humankind and intimidates the public around the world into handing over both individual liberty and state sovereignty. Creating global panic about looming environmental and ecological disasters is a route toward achieving its goal.” 

Read this again and think for a moment. You will notice how closely radical environmentalists follow this exact approach today.
In the Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels declared that capitalism was an enemy of the environment and perhaps were the first to use the term ‘ecosystem.’ Marx lined up his followers to rail against those who could be accused of despoiling the environment. After Vladimir Lenin and his Bolshevik Party launched their 1917 coup in Russia, they dictated that all land, forests, water, minerals, animals, and plant resources become the property of the state. This was done to prevent the public from using them without state authorization.
In the 1960s, popular radical books such as Silent Spring and The Population Bomb tried to convince readers that all pesticides should be outlawed and population growth should be controlled by the government. These books contributed to the establishment of the first Earth Day in 1970, followed by the United Nations Conference on The Human Environment in Stockholm in 1972. Soon there was the formation of an alphabet soup of environmental groups stridently demonstrating and propagandizing the damage mankind was supposedly doing to our blue planet.
Before that decade was over, we in the U.S. were addressing our real problems with the formation of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that launched seven pieces of sensible legislation to protect our surface and groundwater and properly handle waste disposal from our mines and agriculture. But the EPA strayed from rational policy formulation after 1980 and little useful legislation was ever passed again. From then on, only stringent rules were created to impede economic progress at great cost with no benefit to the environment or human health. 

The true beginning of the current socialist/communist surge began in 1988 when the World Meteorological Society and the United Nations Environment Program created the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

It was at this point that the idea of man-caused global warming surfaced as the most important mechanism to defeat capitalism by requiring a one-world government to take the reins of saving the Earth from extinction.
Two years later as the Soviet Union was crumbling, Gorbachev addressed an international conference on the environment in Moscow, where he called for the establishment of an international monitoring system and a covenant to protect unique environmental zones. A majority of the world’s environmentalists accepted his charge. It was the beginning of rule by propaganda and the end of sound policy and scientific research in matters of the environment, with global warming leading the charge. When warming stopped around the turn of the century, radical environmentalists cleverly change the fear to ‘climate change,’ knowing full well that, since the climate is always changing, their crusade would always have its boogieman. 
In 1998, an article titled Green Cross: Gorbachev’s Enviro-Communism, by the late Natalie Grant Wraga who grew up in the Soviet Union said:

“Protection of the environment has become the principal tool for an attack against the West and all it stands for. Protection of the environment may be used as a pretext to adopt a series of measures designed to undermine the industrial base of developed nations. It may also serve to introduce malaise by lowering their standard of living and implanting communist values.”

In Marx and Engle’s manifesto, the authors resolved to:

“build a movement that can replace capitalism with a society in which common ownership of the means of production replaces capitalist ownership, and in which the preservation and restoration of ecosystems will be a fundamental part of all human activity.”

But Marx predicted that capitalism would eventually fail all by itself. It has yet to do so, and thus communist-minded radical environmentalists have had to keep up the war against private business with a battle cry of ecological collapse. This was based on the prevalent but somewhat spurious theory of the relationship between living things and their environment. Indeed, eco-socialism is not now simply a branch of socialism; it is what socialism has become today.
In Part two of this series, we will detail the massive damage the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has wrought upon the world.


Dr. Jay Lehr is a Senior Policy Analyst with the International Climate Science Coalition and former Science Director of The Heartland Institute. He is an internationally renowned scientist, author, and speaker who has testified before Congress on dozens of occasions on environmental issues and consulted with nearly every agency of the national government and many foreign countries. After graduating from Princeton University at the age of 20 with a degree in Geological Engineering, he received the nation’s first Ph.D. in Groundwater Hydrology from the University of Arizona. He later became executive director of the National Association of Groundwater Scientists and Engineers.

Tom Harris is Executive Director of the Ottawa, Canada-based International Climate Science Coalition, and a policy advisor to The Heartland Institute. He has 40 years experience as a mechanical engineer/project manager, science and technology communications professional, technical trainer, and S&T advisor to a former Opposition Senior Environment Critic in Canada’s Parliament.

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #7

How could the Delta variant be more contagious than the original Sars Covid, since variant comes from it? I would like to know what Dr. McCullough thinks about the possible connection between vaccine side effects and inadvertent intravenous injection of the vaccine?

When it Comes to the Acts of Congress, those Emperors Have No Clothes

It’s much like the people in the story of The Emperor’s Clothes; the American people are either afraid of, or ignorant of, the facts, and are therefore unwilling to point out the obvious. I haven’t even found any evidence that this Permanent Apportionment Act of 1929 was even challenged in court, much less among the states. This lie has been going around for so long most Americans have been gaslighted into believing it’s true…

Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste

As a crisis develops, Democrats will use the propaganda resources of the mass media to promote their victimization and blame “White Privilege” as the reason for the supposed inefficiencies and injustices that keep them always subservient to their welfare status.

Repeated US Intelligence Failures Spell Disaster

At the moment, a ‘woke’ American military is not even capable of protecting the US borders let alone confronting a determined enemy. The USA is a naked target at the moment, and it will be innocent civilians who will pay the ultimate price for the gross betrayal by all its leaders to protect them from evil, starting with Joe Biden, the Traitor in Chief…

Let’s Identify and Quash the Apostles of Slavery and Injustice for All

They supplant the virtuous Pledge of Allegiance that demands “liberty and justice for all.” Shall we helplessly sit back and allow these missionaries of evil to have their way? Some say yes. Others aren’t so sure. But a growing number of people are deciding they’ve had enough. For many months now, the plain truth has been evident: America is under attack!
