"It is horrifying that we have to fight
our own government to save the environment."

Ansel Adams

The first scientific study of ecology was done by the Greek scholar Theophrastus in 325 BC.

Theophrastus wrote about the relationship between organisms and between organisms and their environment.

ecology is defined as:

relationship between organisms and their environment

study of the detrimental effects of modern industrialization,
with a view toward prevention or reversal through conservation.

"All organisms and microsystems depend on the health of the ecosystem in which they live, and each ecosystem depends on other, distant ecosystems. All higher life forms depend on the bacteria which maintain a life-supporting atmosphere. While life on earth can sustain the loss of some species, each species depends on the whole. None can exist in isolation on a bare and lifeless planet." - Charles Eisenstein

"If the social learning system comes to lack sufficient individual learning or cognitively costly adaptive biases, behavior ceases tracking environmental variation. Then, when the environment does change, fitness declines and the population may collapse or even be extirpated."

Hal Whitehead


"I am born into an environment
I know not whence I came nor whither I go nor who I am.
Erwin Schrödinger

Chinese charater for environment

environment is defined as:

place an organism inhabits

circumstances of surroundings of an organism

complex of social and cultural conditions affecting the nature
of the life of an individual or the lives of a community of individuals

"Man, endowed with reason,
has the power to create, so that
he can add to what he has been given.

But up to now man has not
been a Creator, only a destroyer.

Forests keep disappearing, rivers dry up,
wild life becomes extinct, the climate is ruined

and the land grows poorer and uglier every day."-

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860-1904), Russian

"We shall never understand the natural environment until we see it as a living organism."
Paul Brooks

Science reveals the truth of an ever changing Earth.

Real scientists are moral individuals who seek truth.

Corruption of the process of seeking the truth undermines not just democracy but civilization.

"It's easier to kill a number than an individual,
whether we're talking about so many tons of fish,
so many board feet of timber,
or so many boxcars of untermenschen."
Derrick Jensen

cost-benefit analysis

What is the Value of a Human Life?

A Human Life Is Worth $7.4 Million

EPA knocks $900,000 off value of a life

5 Reasons Why We Need Principles, Not Policies

John Graham's cost-benefit analysis in conjunction with Milton Friedman's Chicago School of Economics ideology is fatally flawed as both neglect to take into account general effects produced.

1989 John Graham, a Wise Use sycophant, founds the Harvard Center for Risk Analysis.

The pseudoscience of cost-benefit analysis claims to be able to compare the monetary cost of the implementation of new laws.

In John Graham cost-benefit analysis if a fish has no commercial value and 10 million fish die because of toxic pollution the economic cost is zero.

In this mindset useless eaters are better off dead.

Toward that goal premature death is on the rise from slow acting posions - transfat, high fructose corn syrup, diacetyl, fluoride, methyl tert-butyl ether, bisphenol A, phthalates, pyrethroids, polybrominated diphenyl ethers, lead, polytetrafluoroethylene, trichloroethylene, polychlorinated biphenyls, asbestos, perchlorate, mercury, glyphosate and organophosphates.

"Cost-benefit analysis' is a cheap deception of the general public.

This approach represents a serious erosion in science.

You create credentials and appear scientifically sensible, while all the time you are just fronting for a political agenda." - Michael Oppenheimer

"Economists view the environment as invisible because their cost-benefit analysis is fatally flawed.

A full cost accounting of industrial practices reveals how much the natural services of ecosystems threatened or destroyed by development and industrial pollution are actually worth in addition to the real value of natural resources consumed and wasted, especially irreplaceable ones.

Environmentalists despise the church of neo-liberal economics and the priests of predatory corporatism, who are spending our principal and deferring environmental debt like there's no tomorrow."- Andrew Christie

John Graham, appointed by George Bush to head the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in 2001, central role was undermining environmental protection through 'research' papers based on cost-benefit analysis.

John Graham blocked every rule change that protects the environment including two dozen proposed by the EPA including reduced arsenic levels in drinking water, reduced pollution from coal burning plants and regulation of fecal waste from industrial factory farms.

Citizens for Sensible Control of Acid Rain

Citizens for Sensible Control of Acid Rain (CSCAR) operated between 1983 and 1991 to oppose tightening the Clean Air Act. In a 1986 letter sent to more than 600,000 constituents, CSCAR claimed that the acid rain bill would cost some $110 billion to industry and utilities and increase the electricity rate by 30%. Citizens for Sensible Control of Acid Rain was funded by the coal and electric industry. Specific companies included: American Cyanamid Co., Consolidation Coal Co., Indianapolis Power and Light Co., Jersey Central Power and Light Co., Metropolitan Edison Co., Ohio Edison Co., Pennsylvania Electric Co., Peabody Holding Co., Southern Co., Services Union Electric Co.

The Advancement of Sound Science Coalition

The Advancement of Sound Science Coalition (TASSC) is a now defunct industry funded PR front group run by the APCO Worldwide public relations firm which worked to hang the label of "junk science" on environmentalists. forged in 1993, TASSC began as a front for Philip Morris which was attempting to discredit ETS (Environmental Tobacco Smoke) research as a long-term cause of increased cancer and heart problem rates in the community - especially among office workers and children living with smoking parents. TASSC advanced industry-friendly positions on a wide range of topics, including global warming, smoking, phthalates, and pesticides.

unique library index

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
