Environmentalists, and environmental movies especially, are evil…

2011 June 12

…Or so says the conservative website Resisting the Green Dragon, which features a series of films “explaining” how environmentalists are essentially the cause of government control of our lives and mind control of our children. Films like Avatar are apparently the worst (see a Resisting the Green Dragon clip on Good Magazine).*

The tragedy of such rhetoric is its refusal to engage with the pluralism of environmentalism, or the pluralism of Christianity. I wonder where they’d place the pope since he seems to support climate change initiatives. They also seem to ignore James Cameron’s statement on the fight for indigenous peoples against government control.

*Thanks to Neal, an undergraduate, who sent me the Good Magazine link.
