 Background

William Walter (or Bill) Kay is the manager of ecofascism.com, a website which describes its purpose as to “expose both the similarities between environmentalism and fascism and the connections between environmentalism and modern fascistic, or arch-conservative, individuals and groups.” The website appears to focus on issues affecting Alberta and BC, Canada. [1]

Stance on Climate Change

“[I]t is impossible to determine how much, if any, appreciable warming can be attributed to fossil fuel burning because the current warming trend began prior to any possible influence from the Industrial Revolution. […]  there is a direct relationship between increases in the sun's heat output and the temperature here on Earth. […]  Human activity has nothing to do with this relationship. […] Hence, many scientists argue that increasing CO2 levels in the atmosphere are a consequence of “global warming” rather than a cause.”

“What is completely established science is that high levels of CO2 facilitate increased plant growth and, hence, increased animal life as well. CO2 is plant food. CO2 emissions are 'fertilizer in the air'. In fact, some believe that this accelerated plant growth will ultimately suck up any surplus CO2 from the atmosphere, thus neutralizing any conceivable adverse climatic effects of human-caused CO2 emissions. Moreover, warmer temperatures also facilitate plant growth. All along the great belt of land stretching across the middle of the Eurasian and North American continents, where most of the planet's agricultural activity takes place, the great nemesis has always been Jack Frost. And as the planet warms, the frost-free period widens and harvests increase. This too, is a good thing, not a bad thing.” [2]

Key Quotes

“Alberta is a cold place blessed with huge coal, oil, and gas resources. Regarding 'global warming,' Albertans are inordinately skeptical. Despite this, the Government of Alberta is so concerned with 'global warming' it spends $500 million a year assailing this phantom menace. […] Environmentalists claim wilderness parks preserve Alberta’s 'natural heritage.' In reality, Alberta’s environment has undergone so many natural transformations that any talk of preservation betrays an ahistorical, unscientific mindset.” [3]

“Environmentalists' irrational love of vacant ground, their religious zeal for the ecology integrity of wilderness, and their infatuation with petite heritage farms on cities’ outskirts play crucial roles in this crusade to suppress land development.” [4]

The website publishes regular articles and reviews equating the environmental movement with fascism.

2000

Kay authored an article titled “The Great Global Warming Hoax” on ecofascism.com. The article describes global warming as an “eco-scare” among others including “overpopulation, energy crises, global cooling, ozone holes, desertification, deforestation, pesticide degradation, [and] topsoil depletion.”

According to Kay, “Fighting for the truth about 'global warming' is fighting for the overthrow of these liars [climate scientists and environmentalists] and the property regime upon which their power is based.”

At a June 19 speaking event at London's Chatham House, North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) secretary-general Anders Fogh Rasmussen claimed the Russian government is covertly working to discredit hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) in the west from afar.

“I have met allies who can report that Russia, as part of their sophisticated information and disinformation operations,...
