Bataclan night club, scene of a tragic terror attack has become a solemn memorial
Paris was the scene of climate protests Sunday that started peacefully, but turned violent. Hundreds of climate radicals clashed with police and were arrested. CFACT was there.
President Francoise Hollande banned all public protests after the tragic Paris terrorist attacks on Friday the 13th. France adopted emergency legislation which granted the police extraordinary powers. The police used their new found powers to place 24 radicals under house arrest before the protests began.
“Our shoes will march for us.”
This was not enough to keep order.
Large-scale climate protests were called off. A planned march was replaced by a display of shoes under the slogan, “our shoes will march for us.”
Others linked arms in an attempt to form a human chain from Place Republique to Place Nation.
Climate radicals confronted police and were tear gassed. They scaled buildings, shouted slogans and were then pulled down one by one and arrested.
The protesters smashed bottles. When the bottles ran out the they began smashing the votive candles that had been placed in memorial for the terror victims. This offended police and Parisians alike.Drumming up climate support
CFACT’s Paris team videotaped the protesters, who did not seem capable of making a coherent point. When asked what she wanted for the climate one protester told CFACT she wanted, “less gas, more ass” as well as “books” and “bicycles.”
It was clear was that the climate protesters despise the police and the police return the favor.
President Hollande called the protests “scandalous.” Perhaps he can teach President Obama a thing or two about how to respond when mobs of radical leftist youth misbehave.
Murray N. Rothbard was the father of what some call Radical Libertarianism or Anarcho-Capitalism which Hans-Hermann Hoppe described as “Rothbard’s unique contribution to the rediscovery of property and property rights as the common foundation of both economics and political philosophy, and the systematic reconstruction and conceptual integration of modern, marginalist economics and natural-law political philosophy into a unified moral science: libertarianism.”
This book applies the principles of this “unified moral science” to environmental and natural resource management issues.
The book started out life as an assigned reading list for a university level course entitled Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View.
As I began to prepare to teach the course, I quickly saw that there was a plethora of textbooks suitable for universal level courses dealing with environmental and natural resource economics. The only problem was that they were all based in mainstream neo-classical (or Keynesian) theory. I could find no single collection of material comprising a comprehensive treatment of environmental and natural resource economics based on Austrian Economic Theory.
However, I was able to find a large number of essays, monographs, papers delivered at professional meetings and published from a multitude of sources. This book is the result. It is composed of a collection of research reports and essays by reputable scientists, economists, and legal experts as well as private property and free market activists.
The book is organized into seven parts: I. Environmentalism: The New State Religion; II. The New State Religion Debunked; III. Introduction to Environmental and Natural Resource Economics; IV. Interventionism: Law and Regulation; V. Pollution and Recycling; VI. Property Rights: Planning, Zoning and Eminent Domain; and VII. Free Market Conservation. It also includes an elaborate Bibliography, References and Recommended Reading section including an extensive Annotated Bibliography of related and works on the subject.
The intellectual level of the individual works ranges from quite scholarly to informed editorial opinion.
