And The Founder And President of Environmental Progress.
…and is apologizing for his part in the climate scare over the last 30 years
Humans Not Causing Mass Extinction!
Read his latest book "Apocalypse Never" as he explains why today's environmentalists are hurting us all. My hat's off to Michael for coming clean about the true intentions of these climate hoaxers.
Just to be make myself clear: Michael IS a true environmentalist. He DOES care about the environment, but is not happy with the dishonesty and harm climate alarmists are perpetuating on the world.
From An Article by Michael Shellenberger
On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem.
Here are some facts few people know:
Humans are not causing a “sixth mass extinction”
The Amazon is not “the lungs of the world”
Climate change is not making natural disasters worse
Fires have declined 25% around the world since 2003
The amount of land we use for meat — humankind’s biggest use of land — has declined by an area nearly as large as Alaska
The build-up of wood fuel and more houses near forests, not climate change, explain why there are more, and more dangerous, fires in Australia and California
Carbon emissions are declining in most rich nations and have been declining in Britain, Germany, and France since the mid-1970s
Netherlands became rich not poor while adapting to life below sea level
We produce 25% more food than we need and food surpluses will continue to rise as the world gets hotter
Habitat loss and the direct killing of wild animals are bigger threats to species than climate change
Wood fuel is far worse for people and wildlife than fossil fuels
Preventing future pandemics requires more not less “industrial” agriculture
