As you may know, Michael Shellenberger is a longtime, world-renown environmental activist.
His recent public climate change mea-culpa (article and book) resulted in some of the same shockwaves that Michael Moore’s film produced a few months ago.
I know Michael a bit, and wouldn’t say that his awakening was like Paul’s, but rather it has been more evolutionary. (IMO this is why we should encourage those who have a differing perspective to be open-minded — and to be patient with them if they are.)
Over the last few years, Michael has given some fine Ted Talks, and it is clear that (to his credit) he is getting a better understanding of the issues as time goes on:
1 - 3 years ago: How Fear of Nuclear Ends2 - 2 years ago: Why I Changed My Mind about Nuclear Power, and3 - 1 year ago: Why Renewables Can’t Save the Planet.
I would strongly recommend reading his new book: Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All. Here’s most of a good review.
Pass it on!
