Environmentalist apologizes for climate-change alarmism; censored by Forbes

An apology by climate-change activist Michael Shellenberger was originally published on Forbes website, but subsequently taken down.

Michael Shellenberger is an American author and environmental policy writer. He is a Time Magazine “Hero of the Environment,” Green Book Award Winner, and the author of Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All (Harper Collins, June 30, 2020).

Spectator USA has republished Shellenberger’s apology on July 7, 2020. Here it is in its entirety. I added the red bold emphasis.

An environmentalist’s apology: ‘I was guilty of alarmism’

‘I feel an obligation to apologize for how badly we environmentalists have misled the public

By Michael Shellenberger

On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening, it’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem.

I have been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmentalist for 30, so I may seem like a strange person to be saying this.

But as an energy expert asked by the US Congress to provide objective expert testimony and invited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to serve as an Expert Reviewer of its next Assessment Report, I feel an obligation to apologize for how badly we environmentalists have misled the public.

Here are some facts few people know:

  • Humans are not causing a ‘sixth mass extinction’
  • The Amazon is not ‘the lungs of the world’
  • Climate change is not definitively making natural disasters worse
  • Fires have declined 25% around the world since 2003
  • The amount of land we use for meat — humankind’s biggest use of land — has declined by an area nearly as large as Alaska
  • Carbon emissions are declining in most rich nations and have declined in Britain, Germany, and France from the mid-1970s
  • Netherlands is becoming richer, not poorer while adapting to life below sea level
  • We produce 25 per cent more food than we need and food surpluses will continue to rise as the world gets hotter
  • Habitat loss and the direct killing of wild animals are potentially larger threats to species than climate change
  • Wood fuel is far worse for people and wildlife than fossil fuels
  • Preventing future pandemics requires more not less ‘industrial’ agriculture

I know that the above facts will sound like ‘climate denialism’ to many, but that just shows the power of climate alarmism.

In reality, the above facts come from the best-available scientific studies, including those conducted by or accepted by the IPCC, the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO), the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and other leading scientific bodies.

When some people read this, they will imagine that I’m some right-wing anti-environmentalist. I’m not. At 17, I lived in Nicaragua to show solidarity with the Sandinista socialist revolution. At 23, I raised money for Guatemalan women’s cooperatives. In my early 20s, I lived in the semi-Amazon doing research with small farmers fighting land invasions. At 26, I helped expose poor conditions at Nike factories in Asia.

I became an environmentalist at 16 when I threw a fundraiser for Rainforest Action Network. At 27, I helped save the last unprotected ancient redwoods in California. In my 30s, I advocated renewables and successfully helped persuade the Obama administration to invest $90 billion into them. Over the last few years I helped save enough nuclear plants from being replaced by fossil fuels to prevent a sharp increase in emissions.

But until last year, I mostly avoided speaking out against the climate scare. Partly because I was embarrassed. After all, I am as guilty of alarmism as any other environmentalist. For years, I referred to climate change as an ‘existential’ threat to human civilization and called it a ‘crisis.’

But mostly, I was scared. I remained quiet about the climate disinformation campaign because I was afraid of losing friends and funding. The few times I summoned the courage to defend climate science from those who misrepresent it I suffered harsh consequences. And so I mostly stood by and did next to nothing as my fellow environmentalists terrified the public.

I even stood by as people in the White House and many in the news media tried to destroy the reputation and career of an outstanding scientist, good man, and friend of mine, Roger Pielke, Jr., a lifelong progressive Democrat and environmentalist who testified in favor of carbon regulations. Why did they do that? Because his research proves natural disasters aren’t getting worse.

But then, last year, things spiraled out of control.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said, ‘The world is going to end in twelve years if we don’t address climate change.’ While Britain’s most high-profile environmental group, Extinction Rebellion, claimed, ‘Climate Change Kills Children.’

The world’s most influential green journalist, Bill McKibben, called climate change the ‘greatest challenge humans have ever faced’ and said it would ‘wipe out civilizations.’

Mainstream journalists were repeatedly reporting the Amazon as ‘the lungs of the world,’ and that deforestation was akin to a nuclear bomb going off.

As a result, half of the people surveyed around the world last year said they thought climate change would make humanity extinct. And in January, one of five British children told pollsters they were having nightmares about climate change.

Whether or not you have children, you must see how wrong this is. I admit I may be sensitive because I have a teenage daughter – after we talked about the science she was reassured. But her friends are deeply misinformed and thus, understandably, frightened.

I thus decided I had to speak out. I knew that writing a few articles wouldn’t be enough; I needed a book to properly lay out all of the evidence.

And so my formal apology for our fear-mongering comes in the form of my new book, Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All.

It is based on two decades of research and three decades of environmental activism. At 400 pages, with 100 of them endnotes, Apocalypse Never covers climate change, deforestation, plastic waste, species extinction, industrialisation, meat, nuclear energy, and renewables.

Some highlights from the book:

  • Factories and modern farming are key to human liberation and environmental progress
  • The most important thing for saving the environment is producing more food, particularly meat, on less land
  • The most important thing for reducing air pollution and carbon emissions is moving from wood to coal to petroleum to natural gas to uranium
  • 100 per cent renewables would require increasing the land used for energy from today’s 0.5 pc to 50 pc
  • We should want cities, farms, and power plants to have higher, not lower, power densities
  • Vegetarianism reduces one’s emissions by less than 4 pc
  • Greenpeace didn’t save the whales, switching from whale oil to petroleum and palm oil did
  • ‘Free-range’ beef would require 20 times more land and produce 300 pc more emissions
  • Greenpeace dogmatism worsened forest fragmentation of the Amazon
  • The colonialist approach to gorilla conservation in the Congo produced a backlash that may have resulted in the killing of 250 elephants

Why were we all so misled?

In the final three chapters of Apocalypse Never I expose the financial, political, and ideological motivations. Environmental groups have accepted hundreds of millions of dollars from fossil fuel interests. Groups motivated by anti-humanist beliefs forced the World Bank to stop trying to end poverty and instead make poverty ‘sustainable.’ While status anxiety, depression, and hostility to modern civilization are behind much of the alarmism.

Once you realise just how badly misinformed we have been, often by people with plainly unsavory or unhealthy motivations, it is hard not to feel duped.

Will Apocalypse Never make any difference? There are certainly reasons to doubt it.

Apocalyptic pronouncements about climate change have been made in the news since the late 1980s, and do not seem disposed to stop.

The ideology behind environmental alarmism — Malthusianism — has been repeatedly debunked for 200 years and yet is more powerful than ever. But there are also reasons to believe that environmental alarmism will, if not come to an end, have diminishing cultural power.

The coronavirus pandemic is an actual crisis which puts the climate ‘crisis’ into perspective. Even if you think we overreacted, COVID-19 has killed nearly 500,000 people and shattered economies around the globe.

Scientific institutions including WHO and IPCC have undermined their credibility through the repeated politicisation of science – their future existence and relevance depends on new leadership and serious reform.

Facts still matter, and social media is allowing for a wider range of new and independent voices to outcompete alarmist environmental journalism at legacy publications.

Nations are reverting openly to self-interest and away from, which is good for nuclear and bad for renewables.

The evidence is overwhelming that our high-energy civilization is better for people and nature than the low-energy civilization that climate alarmists would return us to.

My invitations from IPCC and Congress are signs of a growing openness to new thinking about climate change and the environment. Another has been to the response to my book from climate scientists, conservationists, and environmental scholars. ‘Apocalypse Never is an extremely important book,’ writes Richard Rhodes, the Pulitzer-winning author of The Making of the Atomic Bomb. ‘This may be the most important book on the environment ever written,’ says one of the fathers of modern climate science Tom Wigley.

‘We environmentalists condemn those with antithetical views of being ignorant of science and susceptible to confirmation bias,’ wrote the former head of The Nature Conservancy, Steve McCormick. ‘But too often we are guilty of the same. Shellenberger offers ‘tough love:’ a challenge to entrenched orthodoxies and rigid, self-defeating mindsets. Apocalypse Never serves up occasionally stinging, but always well-crafted, evidence-based points of view that will help develop the ‘mental muscle’ we need to envision and design not only a hopeful, but an attainable, future.’

That is all I hoped for in writing it. If you’ve made it this far, I hope you’ll agree that it’s perhaps not so strange for a lifelong environmentalist, progressive, and climate activist to speak out against the alarmism.

I further hope that you’ll accept my apology.

Prairie Fires and Progressive Liars

Cross-posted with trevorloudon.com

Preface: It is strongly recommended that you click-through to the links, as doing so will provide invaluable context.

This month marks the 46th anniversary of The Weather Underground’s issuance of its manifesto for a Marxist revolution, Prairie Fire – The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism (July 1974). 

This month also marks the 244th anniversary of our Declaration of Independence — the source document of our founding (July 4, 1776 – now celebrated as Independence Day).

The aspirations underling the two documents are now locked in existential battle, one in which there can be no compromise – only one of those visions for America can and will prevail.  Which will it be?

One might be inclined dismiss Prairie Fire as an obscure footnote in history.  But as we’ll see, it never went away, and is being executed “as we speak.” Its authors and allies followed Saul Alinsky’s advice: instead of setting bombs and marching in the streets, they burrowed into the American system in order to erode it from within, and so set the stage for revolution through subterfuge and cultural sabotage. 

They’ve largely succeeded; they now feel confident enough to reemerge, albeit under cover of “social justice” and “sustainability” and “Black Lives Matter” and such.  The Left fully intends to consummate its revolutionary designs for America, and upon Americans.

This is not a drill.  These comrades of the Left – the Democrats, the Democrat Socialists, “Black Lives Matter” (BLM) and Antifa – Progressives all – are in the process of executing a Marxist-Collectivist revolution.  They are counting on the American public focusing on the above-named slogans and events occurring under those banners, and in doing so as to not realizing what’s actually taking place.

5 reasons why Prince Harry is stupid

Prince Harry, 35, is not the brightest bulb.

Reporting for The Guardian on May 10, 2005, Steven Morris wrote:

Former teachers of Prince Harry at Eton College helped him cheat in his A-level art course because he was such a weak student, a tribunal was told yesterday.

One teacher allegedly prepared explanatory text to go with images produced by Harry while a second helped the prince insert the lines into a project.

The head of art at Eton also allegedly completed work for Harry which was later published in newspapers around the world.

As the prince began army officer training at Sandhurst yesterday, one of his former teachers, Sarah Forsyth, was claiming that his art exam result, which helped him get into the elite college, was flawed.

Ms Forsyth told an employment tribunal, where she is claiming unfair dismissal, that the evening before a moderator was due at the school to look at the students’ AS-level work – which counts towards their A-level grade – she was asked by the head of art, Ian Burke, to prepare text to go with some of Harry’s work for his Expressive Project, in which a pupil is required to explain some of his work and relate it to that of great artists.

Ms Forsyth said she was “profoundly shocked”, adding: “I was concerned that this was unethical and probably constituted cheating.”

She told the tribunal at Reading, Berkshire: “I assumed I had been asked to do this because Prince Harry was a weak student.”

Ms Forsyth, 30, said Harry’s failings as a student were well known at Eton and she had been told that a teacher who marked Harry’s entrance exam had been “desperate” to find points for which he could award marks.

She claims she was too frightened to disobey Mr Burke and did what was asked of her….

In a witness statement put before the tribunal, Ms Forsyth claimed Mr Burke finished off work for Harry which “featured in the newspapers”.

She did not specify in the statement which pictures she was referring to, but in June 2003 a photograph of Harry with two of his screen prints inspired by Aboriginal designs and colours was released to the media.

Prince Harry and Eton, of course, vehemently denied he’d cheated, but we now have clear evidence that he indeed is IQ-challenged.

Reason #1:

On New Year’s Eve, Harry was pranked by two phone calls from Russian hoaxers, Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov, pretending to be Greta Thunberg, the Swedish teenager whom the Left idolize as their new climate change guru.

How stupid must you be to believe that a man with a Russian accent is a Swedish teenage girl?

Reason #2:

In one of the phone calls, Fake Greta told Harry mining companies close to evil orange-man President Trump were exploiting a tropical island, Chunga-Changa.

Fake Greta: “Have you heard something about Chunga-Changa’s struggle. We’ve been there it is really terrible, have you heard something about it? Interesting.”

Harry: “I actually haven’t because I don’t really look at news anymore. That starts my day badly and finishes my day badly. I think it’s a very good idea.”

Chunga-Changa is the name of a Russian children’s song about a tropical island that doesn’t exist and where it is summer all year.

Reasons #3 & 4:

Harry was also pranked into promising to help move penguins from Belarus “to their native land, the North Pole” (The Sun):

Fake Greta: “Now we are dealing with an issue of moving penguins from Belarus to their native land, the North Pole. About 50 penguins were stuck at customs in Belarus. That’s terrible. And we are searching for some ship maybe to transport these poor penguins to their native land.”

Fake Greta’s fake dad: “North Pole…perhaps you have some contacts for people who can help us?”

Harry: “I do have a man who deals with the North Pole. He is in Norway, he can help as maybe he knows all the right people. I’ll give you the contacts on email.”

To begin, Belarus is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe. It has no sea port with ships that can transport the “poor penguins” to the North Pole or anywhere.

Then there is the matter of the penguins. The North Pole is not penguins’ native land. Penguins are native to Antarctica, which Harry should know because in 2013, he had participated in a charity trek to the South Pole. 

Reason #5:

In the hoax phonecall, Harry also trashed President Trump, calling Trump stupid, with “blood on his hands” because of his stance on climate change. He told fake Greta (Daily Mail):

“The mere fact that Donald Trump is pushing the coal industry is so big in America, he has blood on his hands. But Trump will want to meet you to make him look better but he won’t want to have a discussion about climate change with you because you will outsmart him.”

Although Harry thinks President Trump to “have blood on his hands” and his grifter wife Meghan Markle called Trump a misogynist and the pair had said they didn’t want to live in LA until Trump leaves office, that didn’t stop the opportunists from leaving Canada to settle precisely in Los Angeles.

Page Six reported on March 27, 2020, that the couple left their $14 million bolthole in Canada where they were couch-surfing and took a private jet to the Los Angeles area (where they are now couch-surfing in a mansion owned by director-producer Tyler Perry) after President Trump and Canadian PM Trudeau announced the borders were closing amid the coronavirus crisis.

Reportedly, the pair may need to ask Trump for “special help” for security protection because the UK taxpayer will no longer fund their guards following their decision to step down as senior royals. Had they remained part of the British royal family, they would have been entitled to protection from U.S. Secret Service agents during their time in America.

See “Prince Harry and Meghan quit Royal Family” and “Harry & Meghan Markle lose in duel with the Queen

How stupid must you be to trash-talk the President of the very country you’re moving to, from whom you hope to secure protective guards.

President Trump lost no time in saying no to U.S. taxpayers paying for the toxic duo’s security protection. He tweeted on March 29:

“I am a great friend and admirer of the Queen & the United Kingdom. It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada. Now they have left Canada for the U.S. however, the U.S. will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!”

There is a petition that U.S. taxpayers not pay for Harry and Meghan’s $20 million security. The petition is aiming for 5,000 signatures; 3,539 people have signed. To sign the petition, go here.

There was also a White House petition to deny Harry a residency visa. Alas, the petition has received only 460 signatures and is now defunct.

Bloomberg’s C40 Cities group of mayors: Goal is to build a more “sustainable” and “fairer” society during Wuhan virus recovery

On Thursday Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan tweeted the following:

“I am proud to be part of @c40cities and to serve on the #COVID19 recovery task force. We know that it is going to take all of us working together to keep our residents healthy, support our workers and businesses, and rebuild our economy better than before.”

She included this tweet from something called C40 Cities:

“Today, C40 mayors released a statement of principles
to build a better, more sustainable and fairer society out of the recovery from the #COVID19 crisis
. https://bit.ly/COVIDTaskForce”

The Twitter bio of C40 Cities: C40 connects 96 of the world’s leading cities taking bold climate action to build #TheFutureWeWant. Their Twitter page brags of #InThisTogether.

What is C40 Cities (known as C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group)? From Wikipedia:

“The C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group is a group of 96 cities around the world that represents one twelfth of the world’s population and one quarter of the global economy. Created and led by cities, C40 is focused on tackling climate change and driving urban action that reduces greenhouse gas emissions and climate risks, while increasing the health, wellbeing and economic opportunities of urban citizens.

As of 2019, Mayor of Los Angeles Eric Garcetti serves as the C40’s Chairperson, former Mayor of New York City Michael R. Bloomberg as President of the Board, and Mark Watts as Executive Director. All three work closely with the 13-member Steering Committee, the Board of Directors and professional staff. The rotating Steering Committee of C40 mayors provides strategic direction and governance. Steering Committee members include: Amman, Boston, Copenhagen, Durban, Hong Kong, Jakarta, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Milan, Paris, Seoul, and Tokyo.”

Which mayors have formally endorsed the Statement of Principles by the Global Mayors COVID-19 Recovery Task Force? The expected libtard suspects: Stephen Adler (Austin), Bill de Blasio (NYC), London Breed (San Francisco), Jenny Durkan (Seattle), Sadiq Khan (London), Lori Lighfoot (Chiraq), Martin Walsh (Boston), and Ted Wheeler (Portland).

The task force’s web page includes the following standard progressive talking points: equitable, sustainable, fairer, social equity, etc.

It is clear that the harm caused by COVID-19 has not been equitable. We, as leaders of major cities across the globe, are clear that our ambition should not be a return to ‘normal’ – our goal is to build a better, more sustainable, more resilient and fairer society out of the recovery from the COVID-19 crisis.

The recovery, above all, must be guided by an adherence to public health and scientific expertise, in order to assure the safety of those who live in our cities.

The recovery must address issues of equity that have been laid bare by the impact of the crisis – for example, workers who are now recognised as essential should be celebrated and compensated accordingly and policies must support people living in informal settlements.

Climate action can help accelerate economic recovery and enhance social equity, through the use of new technologies and the creation of new industries and new jobs. These will drive wider benefits for our residents, workers, students, businesses and visitors.”

As with most progressive tactics, their goal (transfer of wealth via equity) is never aligned with the real issue (economic recovery). Never let this Wuhan virus crisis go to waste.

Wednesday Funnies! – and the coronavirus hysteria

I got a text this morning from a friend who says she’s self-quarantining herself (14 days) because yesterday while shopping in Costco, a woman “coughed on” her. My friend lives in a city with just one confirmed case of COVID-19 — a middle-aged man who recently returned from Italy.

Such is the media-driven hysteria about the COVID-19 coronavirus.

While Americans are driven into a panic about coronavirus, here are some funnies to release your stress and tension!

P.S. This is what I texted back to my self-quarantined friend:

You have given into the media-driven hysteria. The CDC recommends self-quarantine only if (a) you have symptomatic laboratory-confirmed COVID-19; or (b) you are under investigation for having COVID-19. See CDC’s Q&A on coronavirus/COVID-19.

Some points:

  1. Your city has only one confirmed case of COVID-19, so the probability of coughing woman having it is low.
  2. Did coughing woman display other symptoms of COVID-19 such as shortness of breath/difficulty breathing?
  3. Was her cough dry or wet (with mucous discharge)? If wet then it’s likely not COVID-19.
  4. Did you touch your face or mouth after being coughed on?
  5. Did you wash your hands or wipe them with an antibacterial alcohol-based hand sanitizer?

Here are the symptoms of COVID-19 (CDC):

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don’t feel unwell. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who gets COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness. People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.

Environmental Hypocrite Meghan Markle flies makeup artist from New York to London for her appearance at award show

Like most environmental activists, Meghan Markle is a hypocrite. Her husband has said that “we need to put aside “greed, apathy and selfishness” to protect the planet from climate destruction.”

Of course that only applies to commoners, not his wife as witnessed by her makeup artist flying across the globe to do her makeup for an award show earlier this month.

According to Express Digest, Meghan Markle’s BFF and makeup artist flew into London ahead of the royal’s appearance at the Endeavour Awards earlier this month.

Daniel Martin, from New York, shared an Instagram story showing he was relaxing in the business class section a plane, revealing he was travelling from the states to London.

Meghan, 38, joined her husband Prince Harry, 35, at the annual awards as she made her first official public appearance in Britain following the Megxit crisis and prepares to step down as a senior royal.

Daniel has often joined the Duchess at key moments in her royal life, including her wedding and baby shower, as well as around the time of Archie’s christening, sparking rumours he was one of the baby’s secret godparents.

Daniel shared the black and white travelling snap of the business-class cabin to his 137,000 followers on Instagram yesterday. He revealed he was reading the latest Business Traveller magazine, which included a feature on ‘Waking up in London.’

As well as a cartoon plane, he shared he was travelling from New York’s JFK airport and also cheekily posted: ‘Smell ya later’.

Sanders receives the all-so-important endorsement of Hanoi Jane

Breitbart reports that last Friday at her latest PR stunt, Hanoi Jane endorsed Bernie Sanders for president, calling him the “climate candidate” prior to leading her latest environmental protest in Southern California.

If you really care, read all the details here.

Remember folks, private jets for me but not for thee:

Bernie got on the wrong private jet…

Existential threat? Bernie Sanders boards the wrong private jet

Bernie Sanders was spotted Saturday making his way off of a private Gulfstream between campaign stops in South Carolina and Massachusetts because he boarded the wrong private jet.

As Bernie likes to remind us: Climate change is real, largely caused by human activities, and poses an existential threat to the entire planet.

Typical hypocritical demorat.

After spending untold $millions, ‘walnut sauce’ Tom Steyer quits 2020 presidential race

Tom Steyer, 62, is the billionaire Demonrat who spent $20 million on a national campaign to impeach President Trump, calling Trump “a clear and present danger who is mentally unstable and armed with nuclear weapons,” who had taken the U.S. “to the brink of nuclear war” and obstructed justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey, among other charges. (See “Billionaire Democrat Tom Steyer launches multi-million$ media campaign to impeach President Trump“)

Hey, Steyer, you do know that despite the Left and the media’s hyperventilating about how the Trump administration’s killing of Iranian terrorist general Qassem Soleimani would lead to a U.S. war against Iran and nothing less than the World War III, none of that happened?

And do you know that yesterday, the United States signed a historic peace deal with Afghanistan, that could see all American troops withdrawn from that hell hole by May 2021, and so end America’s longest war?

So much for Trump being “mentally stable” who had taken the U.S. “to the brink of nuclear war”. 🙄

Now, after spending yet more tens of $millions, Steyer is dropping out of the 2020 presidential race.

Mary Kay Linge reports for the New York Post that in the wake of a crushing loss in South Carolina’s primary Saturday, Tom Steyer is quitting, having racked up just over 11% of the vote with 66% of precincts reporting — thereby missing the 15 percent cutoff to claim any statewide delegates — despite the $23.6 million he poured into advertising in South Carolina alone.

Neither did Steyer win any delegates in three earlier Demonrat primaries — in Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada.

Steyer said he would throw his support to whichever Demonrat wins the nomination because “every Democrat is better than Trump.”

Steyer also sanctimoniously promised to continue pushing for government programs to address climate change, never mind the fact that he made his $1.6 billion fortune from Farallon Capital, a hedge-fund firm that invested heavily in carbon-spewing coal-mining companies.

Hypocrite.
