The British Financial Times, like most British mainstream media, normally takes a radical green pro climate action stance. So it is a pleasant change to see the FT arguing against accepting every wild climate claim at face value.
2018 Sagan Prize winner, Peter Gleick, has written a review of Michael Shellenberger’s new book, Apocalypse Never and it’s been getting a lot of links from Shellenberger’s critics.
Guest “nothing to add” by David Middleton Michael Schellenberger’s Environmental Progress page has published a very cool slide deck, related to his new book Apocalypse Never.
