Climate change was political long before Al Gore first started talking about it. In Green Tyranny, Rupert Darwall traces the alarming origins of the green agenda, revealing how environmental scares have been deployed by our global rivals as a political instrument to contest American power around the world.
Drawing on extensive historical and policy analysis, Darwall examines the environmental propaganda scares of the last century, Sweden’s use of environmental alarmism to secretly aid Soviet Russia, and Germany’s alternative energy obsession that descended directly from the National Socialist regime.
Green Tyranny provides a clear history of environmental alarmism and failed policies that explains how “scientific consensus” is manufactured and abused by politicians with duplicitous motives and totalitarian tendencies. Radical environmentalism demands not only the rejection of abundant hydrocarbon energy resources, but also the total suppression of dissent.
