American Rivers, an organization funded by America’s elite with a lot of help from taxpayers, runs a “Most Endangered River” scam that is a complete joke.
National Geographic, which is anything but the non-political image it cultivates, just helped promote one of the stupid pet tricks of the elite; the American Rivers “Most Endangered Rivers” scam. It’s an annual racket, intended to generate publicity using mind-numbed press robots who will faithfully regurgitate American Rivers’ press release as it if was big news.
This was the 34th year of such nonsense and is all too typical. It’s political lobbying dressed up as community caring, wrapped with a shawl of virtue signaling. There are, as usual, 10 “endangered rivers” and, of course, no discussion of who picked them other than the fact it’s “American Rivers,” a name that, in the world of the politically correct, is a warning to the wise not to question or risk being branded anti-river; a leper or untouchable, in the world of the beautiful people.
And, what is No. 5 on the list this year? Well, of course, its a river “endangered” by the “threat” of fracking. It’s the Rappahannock River in Virginia. If National Geographic had bothered to ask what happened to other rivers previously designated as endangered by fracking that might provided a truly interesting story but, naturally, that didn’t happen.
