Michael Shellenberger: "It was economic growth that lifted Thunberg’s ancestors out of agrarian poverty, raised life expectancy from 40 to 70 years, and liberated women and girls from feudal patriarchy. Without Sweden’s economic growth, and the fossil fuels upon which it depended, the person who is Greta Thunberg would not exist...in the name of fighting climate change, powerful first-world organizations including Sierra Club and Greenpeace, whose annual revenues nearly total $500 million, have forced World Bank and other banks to divert lending from cheap and reliable energy sources like hydroelectric dams and natural gas power plants to expensive and unreliable ones like solar panels and industrial wind turbines. And, last year, Thunberg and other student climate activists even sued Brazil, where per capita incomes are just 25% that of Sweden, for supposedly not doing enough to restrict greenhouse gas emissions..."
"Increased wealth from manufacturing is what allows nations to build the roads, power plants, electricity grids, flood control, sanitation, and waste management systems that distinguish poor nations like the Congo from rich ones like Sweden."
"Two years later, an Indian village made worldwide headlines after it rebelled against the solar panel and battery “micro-grid” Greenpeace had created as a supposed model of energy leapfrogging for the world’s poorest people. The electricity was unreliable and expensive. “We want real electricity,” chanted villagers at a state politician, “not fake electricity!” Children held up signs saying the same thing. By “real electricity” they meant reliable grid electricity, which is mostly produced from coal. The village was shortly thereafter connected to the grid."

- GOP embraces liberal environmentalism skeptic Shellenberger with radical plan for nuclear energy – Set to testify on Capitol Hill
Shellenberger’s views and his status as a critic of climate change “alarmists” are being embraced by House Republicans, who invited him to testify as their witness at a hearing Tuesday afternoon held by a special climate committee. He pushes ideas that go beyond what other pro-nuclear advocates and Republican supporters propose, envisioning a smaller role, if any at all, for other zero-emission energy sources such as renewables and for technologies to eliminate pollution from fossil fuel plants such as carbon capture.
“Conventional wisdom is we need a mix of nuclear and renewables,” Shellenberger told the Washington Examiner. “There is no technical or economic reason for that.”

Michael Shellenberger was Time magazine's ‘Hero of the Environment’ in 2008
He’s now become a heretic the Green movement would happily burn at the stake
His thesis is that rabid Green alarmism is creating a raft of dangerous myths
The vehemence may be understandable given his belief that this ‘apocalyptic’ view of climate change is an ‘evangelical, fundamentalist religion’ that doesn’t respond to rational arguments. It satisfies a basic need for something to believe in, he says, and its followers can convince themselves they are serving a higher purpose [saving the planet]. ‘These people are in the grip of a religion,’ says Shellenberger, ‘and they don’t know it.’

15 years after ESA listing as ‘threatened’ due to sea ice loss polar bears are abundant & thriving
Dr. Susan Crockford: "Polar bear turned out to be more flexible and resilient than predicted and many subpopulations are better off than before. Davis Strait and Chukchi Sea bears are doing very well: Barents Sea bears in particular are thriving despite by far the most sea ice loss of any Arctic region...polar bears are no closer to extinction than they were 15 years ago, according to the results of field studies. There is no existential emergency for polar bears or any other Arctic sea mammals due to declining summer sea ice, despite continued messages of doom from remorseless experts."
We should do ‘nothing’ about ‘global warming’ declares MIT climate scientist Dr. Richard Lindzen – ‘This is exploiting people’s ignorance to promote fear’
Sky News - Bolt Report - Broadcast March 21, 2023
Andrew Bolt of Sky News Australia: What do you think we should do about global warming?
Dr. Richard Lindzen: "Nothing." ... "Point of fact, I don't think there's any threat on the horizon." ... "If you truly believed that it was an existential threat. Then the only thing you could do is build up your resilience. And building up your resilience means making more people wealthier because we see throughout the whole world if you are a poor country, if you're not resilient, natural disasters cause immense damage, pain, suffering, so on. In the developed world, similar disasters caused much less damage. So your aim would be resilience. Instead, we're choosing to make ourselves less resilient. And that makes no sense. at all, no matter what you believe. Point of fact, I don't think there's any threat on the horizon. And the best thing to do is to make society wealthier." ...
