There is nothing new under the sun. Environmentalism is idolatry. Environmentalism is worship of the creation and not the Creator. When man rejects Christianity, he will seek to worship something because he cannot evade being made in the image of God. His only alternative is the material world i.e. what he can see with his physical eyes.
Mr. Bitter is a dupe of the environmentalist philosophy. His solutions are all idolater’s solutions at the end of a gun. This is because the environmentalist philosophy is bankrupt. They have no solution but coercion. What Bitter calls for will result in worsening the oil situation. He does not realize that government regulation is the cause of the rise in gas prices and yet he wants more regulation ensuring shortages.
When there is a shortage in the market, you can rest assured the government is involved. The establishment’s religion is environmentalism. This is taught in the coercive educational system from kindergarten all the way through graduate school. Environmentalism is the government established religion of America.
I like green, the green of cash from being productive. God told man to subdue the earth. This is what the environmentalists seek to stop. Drilling for oil and subduing the earth is the solution to the high price of oil. The environmentalists desire is to become primitive. They are regressive, not progressive as they claim. Our survival depends upon getting goods to the market. This is what oil companies seek to do. The environmentalists are determined to stop them.
