IEA Book Club Webinar: In Conversation with Michael Shellenberger


  • 15/09/2020
    18:00 - 19:00
The IEA Book Club is delighted to host an upcoming webinar with Michael Shellenberger, to discuss his latest best-selling book “Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All”. This webinar will take place on Tuesday 15th September at 18:00 BST and will be chaired by Mark Littlewood, IEA Director General.

Michael has been fighting for a greener planet for decades. He is an author, environmental policy writer, a Time Magazine “Hero of the Environment”, and the founder and President of Environmental Progress, a research and policy organisation fighting for clean power and energy justice to achieve nature and prosperity for all.

But in 2019, as some claimed “billions of people are going to die,” contributing to rising anxiety, including among adolescents, Michael decided that, as a lifelong environmental activist, leading energy expert, and father of a teenage daughter, he needed to speak out to separate science from fiction.

What is really behind the rise of apocalyptic environmentalism? There are powerful financial interests. There are desires for status and power. But most of all there is a desire among supposedly secular people for transcendence. This spiritual impulse can be natural and healthy. But in preaching fear without love, and guilt without redemption, the new religion is failing to satisfy our deepest psychological and existential needs.

Please note, this event is strictly for IEA Book Club members. If you wish to find out more about the IEA Book Club , please contact us at [email protected] or call 020 7799 8906.
