Al Gore Is Bad for the Planet...
With his hypocritical lifestyle and alarmist rhetoric, Al Gore does more damage than good to the Earth—talk about really inconvenient truths. That’s just one of the many you’ll find in Iain Murray’s rollicking book, The Really Inconvenient Truths: Seven Environmental Catastrophes Liberals Don’t Want You to Know About—Because They Helped Cause Them.
Murray, a witty and conservative environmental analyst, exposes seven of the all-time great environmental disasters caused by the Left, revealing the undeniable fact: environmentalists create more problems than they fix. Did you know:
The Left’s campaign to replace oil with ethanol is largely responsible for the recent food shortages and skyrocketing prices at the grocery store?
The Endangered Species Act actually endangers species?
Liberals are partly responsible for the resurgence of malaria in Africa because they banned the pesticide that used to have it under control?
We all want a healthy planet, yet liberals have put politics above common sense in the name of "global health." But Murray is setting the record straight, offering practical solutions for each problem and a three-pronged plan to avoid future catastrophes—something the Left has yet to do.
The facts are all here, in a book Al Gore would rather burn than read.
Iain Murray is the senior fellow in energy, science, and technology at the Competitive Enterprise Institute and a frequent commentator on FOX News, CNN Headline News, and the BBC. His articles have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Post, Investor’s Business Daily, the Financial Times, and many other outlets. Educated at Oxford, the University of London, and the Imperial College of Science, Technology, and Medicine, he now lives in a nicely wooded tract of Northern Virginia where Al Gore’s anti-environmental energy gourmandizing is not welcome.
