What makes this article of great interest is it contains the confession of a reformed environmentalist. This man, Michael Shellenberger, spent his entire life advancing efforts to transition our economy to one totally driven by alternative energies. As hopefully always happen, with age comes wisdom. Shellenberger does a great job of explaining why this is not even remotely possible and, if pursued, will likely do more harm than good. Further he has taken a brave stance by stating clearly which source of energy can provide the planet with a bright, viable energy-rich future. It is highly recommended this article be sent to any green-leaning friends or family to help them see the error of their environmental ways. To read this article, click on this link.
