Environmental Disasters and Inconvenient Truths

Environmental Disasters and Inconvenient Truths

New Book on the Problems Caused by Environmental Policy
April 24, 2008

Washington, D.C., April 24, 2008—In the new book The
Really Inconvenient Truths,
Competitive Enterprise Institute Senior Fellow Iain
Murray brings to light an especially inconvenient future:
environmental activists are priming our world for a massive recession that will
cause serious poverty and hardship while ruining
the healthy environment we all
want.

Environmental
campaigners like Al Gore have long embraced an alarmist strategy that calls for
constantly hectoring the public with dramatic predictions of disaster and
decline. But as Murray
points out in his new book, it’s actually the activists’ green solutions themselves
that are causing massive food shortages, poverty, and death.

“Since I started working on environmental regulation five
years ago, I have come to the conclusion that the liberal environmental
movement is grounded in the idea that freedom is detrimental to the
environment,” writes Murray.
“My experience—as a government regulator, as a student, and as a policy
expert—shows me that the exact opposite is the case. The dogmatic ideologies
and restrictive policies pushed on us by the environmental Left have harmed
nature more than helped it, but the environmentalists have never borne the
blame.”

The Really Inconvenient
Truths illustrates how liberal policies have run amuck. Unveiling the
alarmist lies and hypocrisies of Al Gore’s current global warming war, Murray crafts the tell-all
exposé that could help end green hysteria and avoid the economic and ecological
disasters that have already begun.

The Really Inconvenient Truths: Seven Environmental Catastrophes
Liberals Don't Want You to Know About--Because They Helped Cause Them is available from Regnery Publishing via Amazon.com
and in bookstores nationwide.
