Have you seen the new video from 1010Global.org ? The one where they push a red button and blow up anyone that questions their agenda for environmental change? Due to an outraged public reaction, they removed it themselves, but it is still readily available all over the internet.
On the surface, you might think this is just another bunch of green wackos using poor taste; so what? But there is much more to it than that. The “Green religion” and its thousands of devoted supporters are a lot closer to this little video than you might want to know.
To start with, who is behind the 1010 group and their upcoming 10-10 event? The 1010Global organization is promoting their big October 10 (10-10-10) event this weekend, a day of global work known as the “Global Work Party.” They have promoted it heavily, including promotion to community groups, schools, and universities. They have an interesting list online of their supporters which makes it clear that this is not just some crazy little Green group in the UK.
Behind the 1010Global group, are thousands of networked efforts, sharing the same ideologies of worldwide redistribution, global governance and disdain for the unenlightened who are not going along with the program. This disdain was made all too clear in the Red Button video.
The 1010Global parent site, 350.org, has much more on the “Global Work Party” day and lists many additional supporters including Greenpeace, Muslim Green Team, UN Foundation, Socialist Youthfront Denmark, Unitarian Universalists and the World Wildlife Fund.
1010Global.org is more of an annual activist day, but its organized under the 350.org group, and this is what they envision for the event this weekend:
We’re calling it “A Day to Celebrate Climate Solutions”–together we’ll get to work in our communities on projects that can cut carbon and build the clean energy future.
But we won’t stop there–we’ll be using the day to pressure our leaders to Get To Work themselves by passing strong climate policies promoting clean energy and reducing emissions.
They like to call their activists “messengers” and they have some distinguished messengers, indeed. Here are just a few of my favorite “messengers” from their list. Let me know if any of the names ring a bell:
Bill McKibben, 350.org Founder
The misanthropy at the heart of radical environmentalism is well expressed by biologist David M. Graber, who, in a glowing review of Bill McKibben’s The End of Nature, writes: “Human happiness [is] not as important as a wild and healthy planet…. Until such time as Homo sapiens should decide to rejoin nature, some of us can only hope for the right virus to come along.”
Van Jones- You’ll notice his involvement in just about every area of the Top Five list.
A shift from industrial agriculture to ecological, local food systems would be the biggest single step to move towards 350 and a safe climate, while simultaneously solving the food crisis.
Israel is like Hitler and apartheid
Dr. James Hansen- NASA Institute for Space Studies (and apparently NASA Institute for Enlightenment, too)
Rajendra Pachauri- IPCC
Barbara Kingsolver- Her wisdom continues to flow, as evidenced in this quote just after 9-11:
The last time I looked at a flag with unambiguous pride, I was 13. Right after that, Vietnam began teaching me lessons in ambiguity, and the lessons have kept coming. I’ve learned of things my government has done to the world that made me direly ashamed. I’ve been further alienated from my flag by people who waved it at me declaring I should love it or leave it. I search my soul and find I cannot love killing for any reason. When I look at the flag, I see it illuminated by the rocket’s red glare.
Now that you have a clear picture of the type of organizations and people that are supporting the makers of the Big Red Button video, let’s take a look at the top five contributors to the Green religion and the type of belief systems they have.
