Levin on Obama’s Climate Agenda: It's Not About The Environment, But Destroying the American Lifestyle

By Sam Dorman | September 3, 2015 | 10:08am EDT

Nationally syndicated radio show host Mark Levin argued on Tuesday that the real purpose behind President Obama’s climate agenda is destroying the American lifestyle, not saving the environment.

“This isn’t about the environment,” said Levin. “He’s a Degrowther. This is about destroying the American lifestyle, and at the heart of the American lifestyle is the American energy system.”

Here is a transcript of what Mark Levin had to say:

“Let me do this again, let me do this again. Obama despises capitalism. He’s a Marxist. He’s an Alinskyite. That’s a fact. He’s buddies with Ayers. He’s buddies with Wright. So, he despises free markets. Notice the word ‘free.’ He despises them. He’s a control freak as most egomaniacs are. He wishes to reshuffle society, to socially engineer it. He’s stuck in what was once a constitutional system as he tries to break free from it time and time again, as he usurps it. This isn’t about the environment. He’s a Degrowther. This is about destroying the American lifestyle, and at the heart of the American lifestyle is the American energy system -- fossil fuels.

“Quote, from page 111 out of the degrowth movement in Europe, which Obama is fully aware of because he’s part of it: ‘Sustainable degrowth is a downscaling of production and consumption that increases human well-being and enhances ecological conditions and equity on the planet.’ Mr. Producer let us post this chapter again on my social sites. It’s free.

‘It calls for a future where societies live ...’ -- I’m quoting from them -- ‘where societies live within their ecological means, with open, localized economies and resources more equally distributed, through new forms of democratic institutions. It’s an essential economic strategy to pursue in overdeveloped countries like the United States for the well-being of the planet of underdeveloped populations, and yes, even of the sick, stressed, overweight consumer populations in overdeveloped countries.’

“This is why I emphasized Kerry emphasizing global, global, global.

“This is international redistribution of rights. And what these Marxists leftists believe is, we have too much. We have too much material; we have too much wealth; we have too much energy. It’s not about reducing carbon pollution. It’s about reducing your lifestyle, your well-being.”
