Letters: Talking about Suzuki

A response to Eberhardt letter on David Suzuki's work

I’m rolling on the floor laughing at Tom Eberhardt labelling David Suzuki as a “saint.”

You see, in another Black Press newspaper there’s been a raging debate over religion, because David Suzuki claimed those sceptical of the blame-humans-for-climate theory he supports are unscientific religionists. (Never mind he has many religious supporters and sounds like a Pantheist himself.)

Suzuki does behave like a saint, not tolerating dissent – to the extent that he suggested politicians who don’t follow his whims should be jailed. Never mind that he has been proven wrong on facts from temperature history to fish farming, having to remove information from his web site after public exposition of the falseness of his claims. Never mind that human care of the environment can be seen by looking out the window at abundant gardens and driving to Port Renfrew past stands of replanted trees. One should not question a saint.

Notice how Eberhardt and Suzuki blame problems on business people, in fine Marxist fashion. Never mind that wherever Marxism is substantially implemented it cannot even feed people let alone take care of the environment. Notice how Eberhardt spends much ink bashing Prime Minister Stephen Harper, just like trashy NDP MPs and Justin Trudeau.

Why don’t Eberhardt and Suzuki work to improve what has been proven to feed and care for humans – individual freedom supported by defense and justice systems?

I think they’ve indoctrinated themselves with a view of people as incapable and untrustworthy. Thus the “fixed-pie” economics and “drive to the bottom” moral assumption behind their anti-freedom urgings.

I recommend Craig Biddle’s book Loving Life for an overview of what actually works for human life.
