Big Brother Has Turned Green. The environmental movement has cultivated a warm and fuzzy public image, but behind the smileyface rhetoric of sustainability and conservation lies a dark agenda. The Greens aim to regulate your behavior, downsize your lifestyle, and invade the most intimate aspects of your personal life. In this stunning expos, Steve Milloy unveils the authoritarian impulse underlying the Green crusade. Whether they're demanding that you turn down your thermostat, stop driving your car, or engage in some other senseless act of selfdenial, the Greens are envisioning a grim future for you marked by endless privation. Steamrolling nearly all opposition with its apocalyptic predictions of environmental doom, the Green movement has gained influence throughout American society?from schools and local planning boards to the biggest corporations in the country. And their plans are much more ambitious than you think, says Milloy. What the Greens really seek, with increasing success, is to dictate the very parameters of your daily life?where you can live, what transportation you can use, what you can eat, and even how many children you can have. Citing the tactics and goals of Green groups as explained by their own activists and leaders, Green Hell demonstrates: * How Green pressure campaigns threaten the safety of your home and your car, and public health overall * Why the election of President Obama portends a giant leap forward for coercive Green policies * Why Greens obstruct the use of all forms of energy?even the renewable sources they tout to the public * How wealthy Green elites stand to profit fabulously from the restrictions and regulations they seek to impose on the rest of us * How Green pressure campaigns are hamstringing the military and endangering our national security * Why big business is not only knuckling under to the Greens, but is aggressively promoting the green agenda to the detriment of its own stockholders * What you can do to help stop the great Green machine A oneofakind, comprehensive takedown of the entire environmental movement, Green Hell will open your eyes to a looming threat to our economy, our civil liberties, and the entire American way of life.

So, a book that refutes the idea of "global warming" (aka "climate change") is recorded under Subject Headings as "ANTI-ENVIRONMENTALISM"... What exactly is "anti-evironmentalism"? Read the book and don't pay attention to propaganda! (Let's see how long this stands until it's censored!)

Individual freedom should not extend to an individual having the freedom to harm others. Take a look at the scientific consensus on anthropogenic (man-made) climate change:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surveys_of_scientists%27_views_on_climate_change

This author should consider that continuing to pollute the environment at unsustainable levels harms his own and other people's children, before he goes whining about denial of activities... Turning down thermostats and not driving cars will not even be issues if Research and Development is put into sustainable alternatives. The Government is sadly controlled by banks and energy corporations (interesting how THIS is not what the author complains about). Otherwise, it has the resources to invest in Research and Development of alternatives, Government development has historically achieved great things (e.g. The Internet, the Apollo moon mission, major infrastructure projects) as well as funding the programs not cut by privatization-mongers (Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, etc.).

If/when I read this book (added to For Later shelf) I will be asking "how much worse will 'no action' / 'business as usual' be, than the green policies mentioned in the Description?" As we transition to a lifestyle of taking on the burdens we impose on future generations, life WILL get a little less cushy.

This book tells how the government and environmental elites will soon have you under their Green thumb - and what you can do to stop them. It seems everywhere you look, all you see is green. People are 'living Green', businesses are 'going Green', and consumers are 'buying Green'. But pretty soon this trendy 'Green' lifestyle won't be voluntary, it will be mandatory. Steven Milloy, founder of JunkScience.com, shows how the government and environmental elites will soon have you under their Green thumb, controlling the speed you drive, the temperature of your home, even when you can retire...and that's just the tip of their melting iceberg.In this shocking new book, Milloy reveals: how the government may soon control your energy use and the temperature of your shower; why drive-thru restaurants and bottled water may be banned; why today's high food and gas prices will soon seem cheap; and, how an all-Green society will cut into your travel plans, retirement fund, dictate the size of your house, and more. Unbelievable but true, Milloy argues that in our haste to save the planet, we're dismantling the progressive society we live in for the sake of Green controls that aren't actually helping the environment.
