The Environment with Steven Hayward

by Peter M. Robinsonwith Steven Haywardvia Uncommon Knowledge
Monday, May 11, 2009

Hayward challenges the established narrative of environmentalism, beginning with the notion that the earth is fragile and that we have little time to save it from environmental catastrophe. He deconstructs the case for global warming (including “cap and trade” plans to limit greenhouse gas emissions and the new EPA “endangerment finding” on CO2 ) and speaks to the challenges faced by poor countries as they seek to modernize and at the same time reduce the pollution that has historically accompanied modernization. Finally, he offers his insights into the deep structure of environmentalism that substitutes a human apocalypse for a religious one. (34:41) Video transcript
