Sorry I cried Wolf




Sorry, but I cried wolf on climate change





On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I’d like to formally apologise for the climate scare we created.


Author and environmental policy expert Michael Shellenberger.


On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologise for the climate scare we created over the past 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 may seem like a strange person to be saying all of this. I have been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmentalist for 30.

But as an energy expert asked by the US congress to provide ­objective testimony, and invited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to serve as a reviewer of its next assessment report, I feel an obligation to apologise for how badly we environmentalists have misled the public.

CLIMATE ALARMIST APOLOGISES FOR HELPING CREATE CLIMATE SCARE


Here is something I think we will start seeing more and more of, Michael Shellenberger, a former climate alarmist has come out and apologised for the part he played in creating the climate scare.

This is what he wrote in the Australian yesterday, "On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologise for the climate scare we created over the past 30 years."

In his article and in his interview with Chris Kenny last night, he expanded on some of the facts he says current climate alarmists are trying to hide, including:

●Humans are not causing a “sixth mass extinction”

● The Amazon is not “the lungs of the world”

● Climate change is not making natural disasters worse

● Fires have declined 25 per cent 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

● The build-up of wood fuel and more houses near forests, not climate change, explain why there are more, and more dangerous, fires in Australia and California

● Carbon emissions are declining in most rich nations and have been declining in Britain, Germany and France since the mid-1970s

● The Netherlands became rich, not poor, 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 bigger threats to species than climate change

● Wood fuel is far worse for people and wildlife than fossil fuels, and

● Preventing future pandemics requires more, not less, “industrial” agriculture.



How refreshing to hear an environmentalist tell the truth for a change.

On Behalf Of Environmentalists, I Apologize For The Climate Scare

Michael Shellenberger
I write about energy and the environment.

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

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

I know that the above facts will sound like “climate denialism” to many people. But that just shows the power of climate alarmism.

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 that’s 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 then, last year, things spiraled out of control. Read more: https://www.forbes.com/sites/michaelshellenberger/2020/06/28/on-behalf-of-environmentalists-i-apologize-for-the-climate-scare/ (Backup PDF Available Here)

Michael Schellenberger has provided a more complete explanation in his new book Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All.

Reading Schellenberger’s full apology in Forbes, I was pleasantly surprised how close his views are to mine. Despite Schellenberger’s highly commendable views on nuclear power, I assumed he was still an alarmist when it came to his views on anthropogenic CO2 emissions. I was wrong.

I am sorry I made an incorrect assumption about your views on climate change Michael.
