A Conversation on Environmental Alarmism with Michael Shellenberger


Shellengerger Event

Please join the Institute for Policy Innovation (IPI) on August 6 for a special Zoom policy discussion with Michael Shellenberger, author of the national bestseller “Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All.”

Shellenberger has been an environmental activist for decades but eventually concluded he needed to separate climate change facts from the hyperbole, misinformation and counterproductive measures being espoused by many environmental groups.

Carbon emissions peaked and have been declining in most developed nations for over a decade. Deaths from extreme weather, even in poor nations, declined 80 percent over the last four decades. And the risk of Earth warming to very high temperatures is increasingly unlikely thanks in part to slowing population growth and abundant natural gas.

While climate change is real, it’s not our most serious environmental problem.

What’s really behind the rise of apocalyptic environmentalism? You’ll have to join us to hear Shellenberger’s conclusions. And you’ll also have a chance to order a copy of his book when you register for the event. We hope you can join us!
