How can you not call them out for engaging in death worship when they are seeking a governing system that has a sordid history of killing great numbers of people? Clearly, the most extreme "environmentalists" believe they are doing you a favor by killing your neighbor ("Oops! We were aiming for your neighbor. Sorry.")

Climate "Scientist" Who Developed Gaia Theory: We're Gonna Have To Put Democracy "On Hold" To Save the PlanetShocker.
Humans are too stupid to prevent climate change from radically impacting on our lives over the coming decades. This is the stark conclusion of James Lovelock, the globally respected environmental thinker and independent scientist who developed the Gaia theory.You know what's not like a war which would require some adjustments to normal democratic practice? Actual war. I certainly don't endorse repealing the Constitution because of war, but look at the left's reaction to Gitmo, or the idea of ethnic profiling.
It follows a tumultuous few months in which public opinion on efforts to tackle climate change has been undermined by events such as the climate scientists' emails leaked from the University of East Anglia (UEA) and the failure of the Copenhagen climate summit.
"I don't think we're yet evolved to the point where we're clever enough to handle a complex a situation as climate change," said Lovelock in his first in-depth interview since the theft of the UEA emails last November. "The inertia of humans is so huge that you can't really do anything meaningful."
One of the main obstructions to meaningful action is "modern democracy", he added. "Even the best democracies agree that when a major war approaches, democracy must be put on hold for the time being. I have a feeling that climate change may be an issue as severe as a war. It may be necessary to put democracy on hold for a while."
But something like a war, on the other hand, requires that all of democracy be put "on hold."
