Strife After Death
“Death of Environmentalism” authors offer follow-up
Among a series of stories on environmentalism’s fortunes in the latest issue of The American Prospect is “Death Warmed Over” by Michael Shellenberger and Ted Nordhaus, a follow-up to their notorious “Death of Environmentalism” essay of last year. In their latest treatise, argues Grist‘s David Roberts, they condescend to their critics, accuse everyone of missing their point, and display a rather unwarranted degree of satisfaction with their own accomplishments. It ain’t pretty.
