Sting ponces around as the archetypal environmentalist, all concern for the planet and reducing his carbon footprint. But what really motivates him? Does he love the planet or simply hate humanity?Check these lyrics out, from Synchronicity II, which show the utter hatred Sting and his ilk have for the average working Joe:Another suburban family morningGrandmother screaming at the wallWe have to shout above the din of our Rice CrispiesWe can't hear anything at allMother chants her litany of boredom and frustrationBut we know all her suicides are fakeDaddy only stares into the distanceThere's only so.much heartache he can takeMany miles awaySomething crawls from the slimeAt the bottom of a dark Scottish lakeAnother industrial ugly morningThe factory belches filth into the skyHe walks unhindered through the picket lines todayHe doesn't think to wonder whyThe secretaries pout and preen likecheap tarts in a red light streetBut all he ever thinks to do is watchAnd every single meeting with his so-called superiorIs a humiliating kick in the crotchMany miles awaySomething crawls to the surfaceOf a dark Scottish lochAnother working day has endedOnly the rush hour hell to facePacked like lemmings into shiny metal boxesContestants in a suicidal raceDaddy grips the wheel and stares alone into the distanceHe knows that something somewhere has to breakHe sees the family home now looming in his headlightsThe pain upstairs that makes his eyeballs acheMany miles awayThere's a shadow on the doorOf a cottage on the shoreOf a dark Scottish lakeMany miles away, many miles awayThat's it. A more derisive, hateful and venomous view of working class people would be hard to imagine. Sting clearly has a very deep seated contempt and loathing of average people who go to work. It's obvious that this drives his environmentalist thoughts, as distinct from any concern for a clean planet. My point is that probably most greens agree with him, which shows that 'climate change' is more of a political than a scientific cause, predicated on a virulent hatred of average people, whom Sting and his green thugs wish to stifle and supress. That's us I'm talking about. Average working people. He and his green cronies despise us. It's about time we fought back. The single most important moral cause of our time is to defeat greens, end their pervasive influence on our lives, and reduce them to the insignificance they so richly deserve.

I read the article about Sacred Love the 2001 inspired album - I have had it awhile and whilst this man Sting can do no wrong, he has surpassed much of his other work. I am a Geordie like he is, and I love the way he supports other Northern artists like Katherine Tickell, Jimmy Nail, Mark Knopfler. What a talented lot we are!
