Earth Day - celebrating "42 years of crying wolf"

Peter Foster:
... Sunday’s Earth Day comes two months ahead of the vast, but significantly brief, UN Rio+20 conference. Both are pale reflections of their original radical aspirations. Earth Day is still celebrated, but 42 years of crying wolf have inevitably had an effect.
... That Earth Day has gone Happy Face, and Rio+20 will be a farce, reflects the fact that their apocalyptic assumptions have turned out to be so wrong.
...Only man can “care” about the environment. Secure property rights — and sound science — are the surest guides to that custody.
