Homey Seh Whah?

As Suemedha points out, the EPA’s recent epiphany that global warming is a threat to human health comes as a surprise only to lobotomites and those still holding faith in the Bush administration. Speaking of whom …

Former White House speechwriter Michael Gerson has a gem of a piece in today’s Washington Post. He attempts the case that environmentalists pose a grave threat to anti-warming efforts because of — get this — their stubborn ideology. That’s right. It’s not the industries that are poisoning the place who are deserving of condemnation, nor the Bush administration, which just last week refused to regulate the pollutants known to be warming’s cause. Rather, the blame falls on the environmentalists for having the temerity to fight tooth and nail to preserve what’s left of the planet.

Not unironically, Gerson leans on the polar bear as the symbolic victim of the environmentalists’ obstinacy:

Once, the main threat to these creatures came from hunters who lived in lonely shacks and set traps along the ocean shore. Now a threat comes from an unexpected source: elements of the environmental movement, whose political blindness and ideological baggage may undermine efforts to reduce the role of carbon in the global economy.

Gerson claims that the only viable strategy for tackling global warming will necessarily be bipartisan, meaning it will have to have the big polluters on board. The ideologues of the environmental movement, he says, lack the “coalition-building” skills to forge such a compromise.

They tend to be conventionally, if not radically, liberal. They sometimes express a deep distrust for capitalism and hostility to the extractive industries. Their political strategy consists mainly of the election of Democrats.

Shocker.

If the movement to confront climate change is perceived as partisan, anti-capitalist and hostile to human life, it is likely to fail, causing suffering for many, including the ice bears. And so the question arises: Will the environment survive the environmentalists?

Yesterday’s EPA report reveals that the world never needed them so much.
