Publisher's Summary

Did you know that pollutants and estrogen from contraceptives are causing male fish in America to develop female sex organs? Or that ethanol, the liberals' favorite fuel, is destroying the world's rainforests? We hear about AIDS in Africa, but the number-one killer of children in Africa is malaria, and guess who banned the pesticide that used to have malaria under control?Iain Murray's exposé reveals how environmental blowhards actually do more to waste energy, endanger species, and kill people than those they finger, while capitalism, hunting, and old-fashioned property rights have made the planet better.Rather than just myth busting and blame shifting, Murray offers applicable and effective solutions for each catastrophe - something the Left has yet to do.

Too many reaches

Well it is good to hear a different take on issues that are impacting our lives today this author makes jumps and uses faulty logic far too often for this to be truly informative. This is more of a starting place to knowledge rather than somewhere to hang your hat.

Fascists are usually inconvenient

I remember watching Al Gore’s, “An Inconvenient Truth” and immediately afterwards being fairly upset. But as I had time to digest the messages of the movie, research the science a bit and think through it’s claims, the focus of my annoyance has changed. This book confirmed my suspicions that environmentalism has become the religion of choice for many and a powerful tool for proponents of fascism.

I agreed with the author of this book on most of his points, especially with regard to individual property rights and the natural stewardship that should logically follow having an vested interest in one’s own land / home. On a number of other points I was educated. All in all, this was a worthwhile read.
