The Scam of Sustainability

Ann McElhinney's speech on the Scam of Sustainability is the Featured Video on YAF website.

McElhinney gave the speech to a packed auditorium at St. John's College in Minnesota.

The Catholic college have declared this academic year as a Year of Sustainability. In the speech McElhinney berets the college Abbott John Klassen who tells students he has difficulty with the words "stewardship" and "dominion" he has a problem with Genesis in fact. Instead of the bible the Abbot chooses to quote from a poem  "Tragic Error" by Denise Levertov which expresses better than any passage in the bible the Abbot's true feelings about man's relationship with the earth.


The earth is the Lord's, we gabbled,

and the fullness thereof

while we looted and pillaged,claiming indemnity;

while we preened ourselves, sure of our power,

willful or ignorant, through the centuries.

Read all of Abbot John Klassen's essay to the students here.

McElhinney also points out how odd a relationship is the one that has developed between Catholics and Environmentalists. At the center of the Environmental message of sustainability, is the problem, at they see it with population and the need for population control. For Catholics who are pro-life and do not agree with artificial contraception this population control would be impossible to achieve yet they are celebrating sustainability on the campus.

Watch the whole speech here.

Great speech!
Great speech! I wish it went with a PowerPoint presentation to better illustrate the facts she was presenting. God bless Ann McElhinney.

Thanks for your passion.
What a passionate presentation, especially well done under the pressure of an antagonistic setting. One comment about the questions at the end: you brought up the idea that students did not get to choose the sustainability program. However true that may be, the real issue is what you brought up earlier, that it is ok for anyone to do it as long as they use their own money and resources. The big problem with sustainability is that environmentalists want to do it with other people's money, enforced with the barrel of a gun. I don't think anyone would have a problem with anything to do with sustainability or environmentalism if it was all voluntary. The problem is that it is coercive and deceptive in almost all of its manifestations.

Thanks for your powerful voice of reason.

I agree with your premise
...unfortunately, the numerous grammatical and spelling errors often detract from your message. Please have someone proof your writings prior to posting them on the web. On a different note, my daughter attends St. John's Prep, and is constantly barraged by messages from her teachers. When confronted, they "hide" behind their love of fairness and pursuit of "true" science. A level playing field? It is not.
