This Earth Day, the Ayn Rand Center wants to help you understand the destructive campaign environmentalists have pursued for decades against energy production.
Environmentalists say they only want to protect us from the dangers of CO2 emissions, but when you look at the history of what energy projects they oppose, it becomes clear that environmentalists are not so concerned about carbon emissions—they fight against every form of practical, cheap energy regardless of whether it emits CO2 (like fossil fuels) or not (like nuclear and hydro).
What is their real agenda? Should oil and nuclear be viewed as “dirty” and “dangerous?” Do solar and wind represent the future of energy as the environmentalists would have you believe? What did the recent tsunami in Japan actually reveal about the safety of nuclear energy?
Check out the materials on this blog by ARC writers and speakers that expose how environmentalists consistently oppose the kind of energy industrial development requires.
We also hosted a live Q & A session this morning from our headquarters in Irvine, CA, where resident fellows Dr. Keith Lockitch and Alex Epstein answered viewers’ questions about “green energy,” environmentalism, the recent nuclear scare in Japan, and related issues. A recording of this Q&A session can be viewed below.
