I found this lecture from him very revealing about the scam that the environmentalists are pulling off.

If you truly want to see the real practical side of the conservation and environmental movement this lecture pretty much lays it out.

Note: around 1:10 he gets the truth... (http://mises.org/media/4622)

Huh? This one is about price controls. Maybe the Mises site recently moved stuff around? Did you mean this one (Conservation and Property Rights): http://mises.org/media/968 ?

Are you saying the current-day environmentalists have the goal to start gasoline rationing or something?

They are part of a mechanism to help get governmental control over certain parts of the economy.

For instance, oil companies, like any other producer would like the power to restrict their commodity thus raising the price/profit for it. The environmentalists, much to their ignorance help that wish along by attacking certain "dirty sources" of oil and competing energy alternatives.

Hand in hand they work for cartelization, hence price control.

..And yes, if the enviro nazis get their way, rationing would be a potential reality. Cap and trade is a euphemistically labeled system of control.

Gotcha. Kind of like the railroads were actually funding the "conservation" movement at the (last) turn of the century. By making vast swaths of land off-limits, they increase the value of their own land grants.

If you were to follow the money, the oil companies very well may be funding eco-nut groups against various forms of competing energy like coal and nuclear.
