The fundamental error in environmentalism is three fold.
1) It is assumed that the so-called Law of Entropy actually is a dynamic of the universe that cannot be halted nor altered.
1)a) In fact, “they” assert that the law of entropy is absolute and even if alterable is not to be altered.
1)b) In fact, “they” assert that it is irrelevant that the so-called Law of Entropy is alterable and not a irreversible doom of physical systems but assert that the law of entropy should be morally the law of humanity.
2) It is assumed that the human ability to alter the universe is either impossible or irrelevant.
2)a) In fact, “they” assert that the universe should not be altered.
2)b) In fact, “they” assert that the very ability of humanity to alter the laws of the universe is immoral.
3) It is assumed that the reality principle is irrelevant.
[I am not even going to bother quoting chapter and verse on this as I have heard it from the environmentalists and their horses’ mouths for thirty years and I am not into writing a treatise here.]
I assert that humanity is the universe looking at itself and is the universe’s ability to know itself and that human ability to change the universe just is what humanity fundamentally is.
