Sensible Environmentalism in the Media
From his early days as an activist, Dr. Patrick Moore has been unafraid to speak his mind—a habit that, over the past 30 years, has earned him more than a few detractors.
Sensible Environmentalism was born of frustration. What began in the 1970s as a politically-centered, science-based vision of environmentalism has been replaced with extremism and rhetoric.
Science and logic have been abandoned and the environmental movement is often used to promote other causes such as inequality between the rich and poor and anti-corporatism. Many of Dr. Moore's ex-colleagues are now his critics. But, true to form, that in no way diminishes his commitment to share his knowledge and opinions, and to participate in the public dialogue on environmental issues.
The new, revised 10th anniversary edition of TREES ARE THE ANSWER delivers an even more powerful message than before about the value of forests, a message that runs counter to much of the environmental movement’s current thinking.
