The moonbats are out in full force to celebrate “Earth Day” today. There are all sorts of events planned jam packed with the sort of symbolic feel-goodism liberals adore. A whopping 18% of the American people say they plan to “celebrate” Earth Day, this year.
NASA even took some time out from their Muslim outreach duties to promote the importance of “climate change” (I like to call it “weather”) with #GlobalSelfies so libs can take pictures of themselves caring more about the earth than you do.

Of course, NASA had to weigh in on “Climate Change” (weather):
@NASA Has he heard about “Poverty”,…”Civil Wars,”…”Genocides,”…how far down the list do I have to go; until climate change appears???

Prompting this humorous reply:
@NASA Is there climate change in space?

Via Sooper Mexican, here are some fun facts about the day:
Did you know that Earth Day started in 1970 on the 100th anniversary of Lenin’s birthday? Neat, huh?
Earth Day was co-founded by a murderous degenerate named Ira Einhorn who bashed his girlfriend’s head in and hid her body in a trunk while she was still alive. There she stayed for the next 18 months until her her rotting corpse was discovered by the police. He is known as “the Unicorn Killer” because Einhorn means unicorn in German. He fled to Europe and was convicted 25 years later for her murder in 2002 and is serving a life sentence.
Oh – and none of the original Earth Day predictions have come true.
Via John Gabriel at Ricochet, here are the 13 Most Ridiculous Predictions Made on Earth Day, 1970:
Today is Earth Day — an annual event first launched on April 22, 1970. The inaugural festivities (organized in part by then hippie and now convicted murderer Ira Einhorn) predicted death, destruction and disease unless we did exactly as progressives commanded. Sound familiar? Behold the coming apocalypse, as predicted on and around Earth Day, 1970:
- “Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.” — Harvard biologist George Wald
- “We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation.” — Washington University biologist Barry Commoner
- “Man must stop pollution and conserve his resources, not merely to enhance existence but to save the race from intolerable deterioration and possible extinction.” — New York Times editorial
- “Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.” — Stanford University biologist Paul Ehrlich

Via The Conversation: EPA ‘Jetting Around the Country’ for Week-Long Earth Day Tour
Administrator McCarthy will undertake a greenhouse gas laden week-long tour that will “far exceed” any benefit from her climate change proselytizing.
“Frenetically jetting around the country appears to undercut [the] EPA’s message to ordinary Americans that they should conserve, consume less and reduce transportation pollution,” PEER Executive Director Jeff Ruch said in a statement.
McCarthy will be participating in “various events to…focus on responsible steps to cut carbon pollution to slow the effects of climate change” in New York, Boston, Cleveland, Atlanta and Memphis.
Some activities on the tour were called into question.
Ruch noted that some events on McCarthy’s itinerary have questionable ties to promoting climate action, such as joining Energy Secretary Moniz to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at Tuesday’s Red Sox vs. Yankees baseball game at Boston’s Fenway Park.
There’s some sort of Pow-wow going on at the National Mall in Washington DC to protest the Keystone Pipeline. As you can see, it’s lightly attended, I’m guessing because even most moonbats know Obama’s already decided against it – and has just kicked the can down the road again to the mitigate political damage to vulnerable Dems. But for some people, it’s still worth the effort just so they show everyone how much they care about the environment, you guys!
