evironmental reminisence

The modern environmental movement began in 1970. That was a big year for me. I not only started recycling, it was the year the world of music opened up for a kid from the suburbs. This world was revealed to me by Frank Zappa. thumbnailcarhrhr31

I was a Rocker turned Zappa Freak.  Zappa led me to Modern Music, and wanting to be a composer. I came to love Stravinsky, Varese and other favorites of Frank; while at the same time, through the radio, I discovered jazz. I embraced the music of Coltrane, Rollins, Monk, Miles, Ornette, Cecil Taylor, The Art Ensemble of Chicago, and many others.

thumbnailcawf1t8m1You could say I was an environmentalist by recycling and turning off lights(my father loved that), but today the meaning has changed, something that happens with so many words used by the Left. Lost of all meaning are significant words like “peace”, “justice”, “fairness”, etc.

Since 1970 the air and water are cleaner, even with growing population. Starting in the 70s there were environmental activists who cordially sat down with corporations to retool and make changes which were beneficial to the environment. They did not demand closure of all energy producing operations like the Enviro-Marxists and the people who call themselves environmentalist today, who want us to live like the poor of the Third World, or a Soveit clinging to prescious squares of toilet paper.

They were effective and beneficial to all people (except millions of Africans who died because they banned DDT) and the environment.(Yes, I also know they were always a bunch of Socialists. I’m trying to be positive.) This common sense approach should either be adopted by the Green Movement, or the Greens should be recycled. We can make something useful from them rather than be dragged back to being dirty, diseased, cold and hungry. Save the humans, eat the Greens.
