Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All Free Audiobook Download by Michael Shellenberger
Michael Shellenberger, a Stanford University graduate in political science and environmental studies, proposes that the label of "environmentalist" has been hijacked by leftist activists who have put the environment at risk by advancing alarmist claims of global warming. By forging an alliance with alarmists, environmentalists have helped create a myth that we are victims instead of responsible for our own actions.
Michael Shellenberger has been a proponent of anthropogenic climate change for many years. In this podcast, he talks about the potential environmental consequences. He explains why environmentalism is so dangerous and how to combat it.
In his new book, Michael Shellenberger argues that environmentalism has become a political tool. It is not just a scientific pursuit to protect the planet and its wildlife but also a means of achieving political power. As the climate continually changes, it seems like environmentalists are more concerned with personal virtue than clear-minded thinking.

Michael Shellenberger is an environmental activist who wants to make the world a better place with clean air, water and nature. But what he doesn't realize is that his fight against pollution is doing more harm than good. Following his journey throughout the United States where he meets both environmentalists and skeptics of global warming, Michael learns that people are too quick to put their faith in government to protect them from impending doom. He also begins to understand that his methods of fighting for the environment are wrong and we should be looking at solutions on our own instead of relying on the government to solve them for us.
