Review of Environmentalism Gone Mad: How a Sierra Club Activist and Senior EPA Analyst Discovered a Radical Green Energy Fantasy, by Alan Carlin (Mt. Vernon, Washington: Stairway Press), 565 pp., ISBN-978-1-941071-13-7, ISBN-978-1-941071-92-2; $24.62
It would be impossible to write a better book about environmentalism, global warming, government corruption, federal overreach, and the solutions to all the resulting problems…
Better than anyone before, Carlin reveals the motivations driving many environmental groups, who look to maintain their staffs and enhance their budgets and power rather than to protect the environment. Carlin says many academics recognized the advantages of helping create and sustain a government cash cow and are motivated to produce findings that perpetuate the fear-driven, yet lucrative, belief man is causing global warming.
