Celebrating Earth Day

Filed under: The fall of the West — David Jenkins @ 7:46 pm

I celebrated it by turning on my gaming computer with its 1KW power supply and using it to find out who started the nonsense.

One of the founders of Earth Day was Ira Einhorn. In 1977 Ira bludgeoned his girlfriend, Holly Maddux to death and stuffed her body in a trunk. 18 months later, when other tenants in his apartment building complained about the smell, Holly’s mummified remains were discovered. Ira is now serving a life sentence in a state prison; I understand his cell has a low wattage light bulb.

Clearly, the green thing to do would have been to bury the body in the ground: Ira was blazing the trail of hypocrisy – albeit in a rather disagreeable way – for the tartuffes who were to follow: Al Gore, David Suzuki  and most of the dignitaries of mainline churches.



  1. Well, there is some consistency here, since eco-extremists believe humans are bad for the environment. He reduced one human’s carbon output to zero.

  2. Miraculously an e-letter turned up just as I was reading about Ira,and poor Holly Maddux you could say they were both poor because they both needed light, which told me what to do,now that earth day has come and gone!
    It tells me we should expand our commitment to our our planet beyond Earth Day.
    1) Stay informed with the latest NA Science Policy News. …..
    2)Educate ourselves with resources from NA….that might be a good idea, may be a step up from sorting out the garbage which still troubles me.
    3) Think about our environment in a new way by reading books from Joseph Henry’s Press
    More books?….What for? It’s all meaningless
    why not just expand our commitment beyond earth
