    Inhaltsangabe

    Climate change is real, but it’s not the end of the world. It is not even our most serious environmental problem.

    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.

    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.

    missinformation and denial

    Cherry picked facts to argue a skewed vision designed to misslead an audience obviously believed by the author and his commissioners to be uninformed if not stupid. Dangerous obsfucation in
    precarious times. A book the world can definately do without.

    Ich hätte dieses Buch gerne selber geschrieben

    Shellenberger widmet sich aktuellen ökologischen Fragen mit einen kühlen Kopf und logischen Verstand. Er lässt sich nicht beirren von dogmatischen Weltvildern und alarmierenden Debatten. Sein Buch ist sehr datenlastig und betrachtet verschiedene Themen differenziert ohne schwarz-weiß-Denken.

    Finally some good news

    With a Master of Science degree in environmental protection I wholeheartedly agree with the positive vibes of this book. Capitals, wealth and growth will save this world and the human Population no apocalyptic death cult.

    Climate alarmism cult

    It is important to make the difference between the awareness of our impact on the world and another one to tell the emerging world to take cold showers and buy an electric car...
    For too long rich nations have dwarfed the poor nation’s path to industrialisation and now it is our turn to let them grow and absorb their GHG emissions.
    Great book.

    Provides a much needed balance to the climate alarmism were surrounded with

    Excellent book, inspiring and motivating. Grounded in data. I can only hope that Michael Shellenberger gets the same kind of media attention that is afforded to Greta Thunberg.
