Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All

 

Herland Report: Climate change is real but it’s not the end of the world, it is not even our most serious environmental problem, says Michael Schellenberger in his new book, Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All.

Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All Michael Shellenberger  Michael Shellenberger has been fighting for a greener planet for decades. He helped save the world’s last unprotected redwoods.

He co-created the predecessor to today’s Green New Deal.

And he led a successful effort by climate scientists and activists to keep nuclear plants operating, preventing a spike of emissions.

But in 2019, as some claimed “billions of people are going to die,” contributing to rising anxiety, including among adolescents, Shellenberger decided that, as a lifelong environmental activist, leading energy expert, and father of a teenage daughter, he needed to speak out to separate science from fiction.

Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All, by Michael Shellenberger, explains how much political nonsense we are being served in the field of environmental issues.

 

Apocalypse Never: Despite decades of news media attention, many remain ignorant of basic facts. Carbon emissions peaked and have been declining in most developed nations for over a decade.

Deaths from extreme weather, even in poor nations, declined 80 percent over the last four decades.

And the risk of Earth warming to very high temperatures is increasingly unlikely thanks to slowing population growth and abundant natural gas.

Curiously, the people who are the most alarmist about the problems also tend to oppose the obvious solutions.

What’s really behind the rise of apocalyptic environmentalism? There are powerful financial interests. There are desires for status and power.

But most of all there is a desire among supposedly secular people for transcendence. This spiritual impulse can be natural and healthy.

But in preaching fear without love, and guilt without redemption, the new religion is failing to satisfy our deepest psychological and existential needs.

Led by Scandinavian bestselling author, Hanne Nabintu Herland, The Herland Report news and opinion website provides independent analysis from leading Western intellectuals and ground breaking YouTube interviews, cutting through the mainstream media rhetoric. It is a great place to watch interviews and read the articles of leading intellectuals, thought leaders, authors and activists from across the political spectrum. The Herland Report believes in freedom of speech and its editorial policy resides above the traditional Left vs Right paradigm which we believe has lost its relevance and ability to describe the current driving forces in Western politics.
