This revealing examination of the environmental movement by the political strategists and opinion researchers, Ted Nordhaus and Michael Shellenberger, triggers readers into a closer assessment of the goals of each interest group and its leadership. Opposing the negativism in regulations promoted by most organizations, the authors urge more positive steps through government leadership and investment into efforts to overcome global warming. When their arguments were first published in 2007, the authors were criticized, but now their remarks appear prophetic.
