Each year, Earth Day is accompanied by predictions of doom. Let's take a look at past predictions to determine just how much confidence we can have in today's environmentalists' predictions. In 1970, when Earth Day was conceived, the late George Wald, a Nobel laureate biology professor at Harvard University, predicted, "Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind."

Left-wing filmmaker Josh Fox launched his latest film, Awake, a Dream from Standing Rock, online April 22 — after it premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Predictably, liberal media including Reuters, The Washington Post and The Hollywood Reporter heralded the movie and ignored inaccuracies of his earlier, biased documentaries attacking the oil and gas industry. The film was called “timely,” and “powerful.” Fox was even credited for his “deep understanding of pipelines” and for getting in the way of the indigenous people telling their story.

Pollution is all capitalism’s fault, according to the socialists at Liberation. “Earth Day then vs. now: Capitalism is still killing us,” Liberation staff headlined a piece on April 20 — just two days before marking Earth Day 2017. “Earth Day then vs. now: Capitalism is still killing us,” Liberation staff headlined a piece on April 20 — just two days before marking Earth Day 2017.

Hiboko Tabuchi of the New York Times wrote a supposed news story lamenting the Trump administration’s proposed cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency. It was presented both in headline and tone as an editorial: “What’s at Stake in the Cuts Proposed for the E.P.A.” The photo selection really rubbed in the emotional aspect of the administration’s brutal (proposed) cuts: the large set of four pictures include one showing a man with a hard-hat that spells FLINT, his face downcast, holding a young girl on his shoulder, right above one of a fleet of black security cars for new EPA administrator Scott Pruitt. Poor vs. privileged?

This past week, President Trump issued a sweeping executive order unraveling a host of energy regulations enacted by President Obama. Predictably the news media were beside themselves over the matter. As my colleagues at Newsbusters adroitly pointed out, ABC, CBS, and NBC were in full panic mode.

It’s the end of the world as we know it. Just when lefty celebrities thought the world couldn’t get any worse, President Donald Trump stabbed Mother Earth in the heart.

Liberal climate blogs have insulted climate change skeptics with a term reminiscent of Holocaust deniers almost every other day — just since Donald Trump’s election. InsideClimate News, DeSmogBlog and Grist smeared people skeptical of claims about man-made climate change labeling them “deniers” on Twitter at least 69 times combined between Nov. 8, 2016, and March 27, 2017.

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that stripped the Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to continue with President Obama’s Clean Power Plan and the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) went nuts. “After suffering defeat in Congress in his promise to replace ObamaCare, President Trump returned back to the executive order route today to try to deliver on another major campaign vow,” whined anchor Lester Holt at the start of NBC Nightly News, “It’s a jobs move that like the health care gamut entails shredding another major piece of the Obama legacy.”

The arts and literature pages offer no respite from the New York Times political thrust. Lisa Birnbach hung out with actor Mark Ruffalo, perhaps best known for his role as The Hulk in the series of Avengers superhero movies, for her front-page Arts story, “The Actor’s Activist, Onstage.” Ruffalo is participating in a politicized revival of Arthur Miller’s obscure anti-capitalism play “The Price,” and Birnbaum indulged the actor’s love of Bernie Sanders, John Kerry, and left-wing protests. Meanwhile, Sunday book reviewers found ominous parallels to Stalin and the Red Scare in Trump's America.

Just as they didn’t seem to mind Dakota Access Pipeline protesters’ arson, rioting and violence, the network news media failed to condemn the hypocrisy of self-proclaimed “water protectors” leaving behind mountains of trash now threatening to pollute the Missouri River.

The last people protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline were evicted after North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum ordered everyone to leave over safety and environmental concerns due to all that debris.

Thursday afternoon, Morton County, North Dakota officials announced, roughly 24 hours after yesterday's 2. p.m. Central Time deadline, that "the main Dakota Access Pipeline protest camp is now officially closed." Outside of the major broacast networks, press coverage of the camp's imminent and now final closure has been and I suspect will continue to be light, as the holdouts' conduct has been injurious and disgraceful. In the final days, "protesters" who claim to be environmentalists exposed themselves as nothing more than pretentious, ruthless arsonists.

A 2:00 p.m. Wednesday deadline to leave the area looms for hundreds of bitter-ender protesters at the Dakota Access Pipeline site following Donald Trump's January 24 executive order advancing its approval. Based on previous reporting I've seen, the presence of "hundreds" is a revelation. What's more, despite the oncoming environmental disaster caused by their trash, filth and abandoned items, up to and including cars and trucks, it's clear that most of those still there are standing by and observing the cleanup instead of helping with it. It's appalling that these immature, irresponsible children continue to receive presumptive press sympathy.
