  • GREEN ENVIRONMENT SENSE & NONSENSE
    An easy and interesting read for both scientist and those who find science boring. 'Green Hell' tells how some green issues are plain wacky and most are anti-business.
    With green environmentalism implemented, the world might be very green, but I don't think you'd care to live on planet earth. Dictatorship anyone? ...more info
  • Something To Think About
    I really believe that this book says a lot about what the movement is all about. The cold hard truth is that the earth is getting warmer and we didn't do it all. But what Steve Milloy really shows is that he doesn't believe in global warming or in being green. He feels that the green movement is dangerous. "Green is the new red," he said at his presentation at the Heritage Foundation. What people need to do is expose the greens for what they really are, communists! He exposed anyone involved in green anything as being somehow either a nut, a subversive, or someone trying to make a quick buck at our expense. If you read this book, you will understand everything you ever wanted to know about someone like Steve Milloy of junkscience.com and FOX NEWS....more info

  • Must read! The real agenda is not a clean environment!
    This is a must read book for everyone. Ever wonder why we in America live in the cleanest environment on earth yet we are repeated told we are bad? This book explains it! We do it better, safer, more environmentally sound right here in America! When the devil greens shutdown a project in the US and it moves overseas, say to Brazil, the net effect on earth is worst. They have essentially no environmental regulation there. The greens don't want a clean environment, they want socialism! It is that simple. They have found a popular cause to do there evil. Don't let them! But this book, in fact buy 10 books and pass them around.

    Read some of the 1 rates, they provide even more support.

    Buy it!...more info
  • Very disappointing
    The author is so off base. Have been living small since I was growing up in the 50's and 60's. The author would have you believe that those who believe that less is more, is somehow out to make peoples lives harder. He notes as an example that Al Gore, whom I am no fan of, wants me to dry my clothes on a clothesline which I do, while he can have a indoor pool that costs $600 a month to heat. He fails to mention that the Gores home is powered by the sun. Sure I can agree that the celebrity greenies get on my nerves since they are the jump on the wagon types to me. Growing up we were 'green' because it was more frugal and healthier. Heck when President G W Bush returned to Texas it was to an off the grid home. So its not just wacky liberals who appreciate living green.

    And the author says that other countries should be able to use DDT and use their natural resources as they want, failing to realize that what others do will effect us as Americans, not to mention some of his friends in big business are the very ones who have made Africa into famine areas. Or build the big businesses that require China to build polluting plants to produce the junk Walmart and other stores sell. Karma. What goes around comes around.

    He picks and chooses the people he picks on. Yes, the Kennedy family didn't want wind power near their homes in Massachusetts and greenies like myself complained that its unfair to want wind power in other areas of the country yet not allow it in your area. Why was it honorable in the years I was growing up to be more thrifty? To eat less, drive less, have a smaller home, use it up,wear it out, find a need or do without? What happened to Benjamin Franklins waste not want not? What happened to all the new ideas that we have seen since the 1900's? Things that were seen as a bit odd when they came along? Nothing different from the new greenies. Oh and he lies when he says that here in California that we want to dictate what colour car you can drive. Actually what we would like to see is better car paints that do not absorb the suns heat. Fact is we have 100* days for months on end. And he is ignorant on the issue of bamboo. It does NOT require lots if water or fertilizer. It is renewable which is why we like it in our homes. And he is wrong computers are NOT all dumped in land fills, as we know here in California where we have recycling places that take them apart remove the gold and silver, grind the metal and plastic which is used in making new items.

    He puts greenies into 5 groups. Fanatical earth nature worshipers Do gooders he sees as ignorant profiteering big businesses who are becoming green Cowards politician scientists True greens exploit the rest of the greenies.

    He has no idea how many of us there are who see green as saving us money. Those who live in public housing here in CA who now have to have AC units rather than screen doors and screen windows, and high electric bills, there are better things to do with my money than have a big power company get my money.And it seems he likes totalitarianism when its from his side.

  • Review of Green Hell
    This book is a quick read, and everyone should read it. The book exhaustively discusses the problem of hysterical environmentalism, and how the root cause is not a desire for a better environment or a greener earth. Rather the motivation is for complete power over individual choice and pesonal freedoms. Purported environmentalism is merely the mechanism for achieving control.

    The book is well documented, and I know several of the cited examples from personal experience. The author names names and presents his case clearly.

    The only shortcoming is that the book offers only general solutions, none of which should be expected to be effective against this time bomb to destroy our wealth, welfare and freedoms.

    As a true environmentalist and minimalist, I urge everyone to read this book....more info

No matter what side of the picture you believe - reading this different approach offers a new perspective on the subject of sustainability's impact on personal choice....more info
  • Ayn Rand Meets Steven Milloy
    As I read through Steven Milloy's "Green Hell," I remember reading Ayn Rand's exposure of the environmental movement... about thirty years ago. I have watched her predictions unfold over the years. It's been quite a trip.

    "[O]bserve that in all the propaganda of the ecologists--amidst all their appeals to nature and pleas for "harmony with nature"--there is no discussion of man's needs and the requirements of his survival. Man is treated as if he were an unnatural phenomenon. Man cannot survive in the kind of state of nature that the ecologists envision--i.e., on the level of sea urchins or polar bears. . . .

    In order to survive, man has to discover and produce everything he needs, which means that he has to alter his background and adapt it to his needs. Nature has not equipped him for adapting himself to his background in the manner of animals. From the most primitive cultures to the most advanced civilizations, man has had to manufacture things; his well-being depends on his success at production. The lowest human tribe cannot survive without that alleged source of pollution: fire. It is not merely symbolic that fire was the property of the gods which Prometheus brought to man. The ecologists are the new vultures swarming to extinguish that fire." -- source.
    On page 127 of my copy of The New Left: The Anti-Industrial Revolution, she wrote [and I add my comments in square brackets]:

    You get up at five A.M., because you work in the city and must be at the office at nine [maybe not, the green agenda will have you coerced into living where you work.]..

    You always had a light breakfast, just toast [toast? if you can afford it, what with all the farmland being converted to biofuels production.]..

    and coffee [hmmm, if you can afford it at $9.50 per pound or if it too has not been banned, for environmental or health reasons. Does it offend any one's religion?]..

    Your electric percolator is gone; electric percolators are not manufactured any longer, they are regarded as an item of self-indulgent luxury: they consume electric power, which contributes to the load of power stations, which contributes to air pollution [and, EGAD! Global Warming... no, make that "climate change," let's hedge our bets.]..

    So you make your coffee in an old-fashioned pot on an electric--no, an oil-burning stove;[oil burning? He he, not if Norway is any example...."Among the measures included in Norway's plan to become carbon neutral are a ban on oil-burning stoves and a pledge to increase biofuel use by seven percent before 2010."]..

    you used to have an electric one, but they have been forbidden by law. Your electric toaster is gone; you make your toast in the oven; [oven? oh, yeah, maybe, in your environmentally friendly solar oven, if it's not cloudy,]..

    your attention wanders for a moment and you burn the toast. There is no time to make another batch. [Well, let's hope there are some clouds floating by as you dream about the old days.]

    When you had a car, it took you three-quarters of an hour to get to the office; but private automobiles have been outlawed and replaced by "mass transportation." [Car culture.... the new dirty word.]..

    Now it takes you two hours and a half. The community bus can make the trip in a little over an hour, when it is on time; but you never know whether it will be on time, so you allow for half-an-hour's delay. [We need a Mussolini.]..

    You trudge ten blocks through the bitter gusts of a cold morning wind [wind? maybe we will be wearing little windmills on our heads to heat our clothes... if we are still allowed to wear clothes, how much water is used to make a pair of jeans?]..

    to your community bus stop, and you stand waiting. You have no choice-- there are no other means of transportation-- and you know it; so does the bus company. [And the government.]
    You see, everything's a controversy these days. From what we eat, to what we wear, to how we move around to the places we live. Global Warming, pardon me, "climate change," is exactly the kind of thing people like Rahm Emanuel wish for to expand their scope and power to interfere with your life.

    And, as I seem to have learned while writing this little rant, there is not a single aspect of our lives that is not under attack by the environmental movement...


    Somehow, Rahm, I think I know exactly what you mean.

    But the environmentalists may have to stand in line. There are others who are very determined to make decisions for us ... those who want to control our speech (See our Canadian Human "Rights," Commissions,) or the way in which we do our jobs, how we raise our kids, with whom we are allowed (or forced) to associate... (non-smokers, pot smokers, people who don't wash their hands...) or perhaps most important of all, as recent government attempts to "fix," our economic problems demonstrate... the way in which we dispose of the money we work for.

    They are coming at us from every direction.

    In the movie "Cotton Club," one of the characters says to a bully, "You can only push some people so far before they start to push back."

    When do we decide to push back?...more info
  • A Needed Truth
    Mr. Milloy presents a truth that needed to be shared. He does not state that the people (not consumers) of Planet Earth do not have a stewardship responsibility for our home. He presents the truth about the global warming tactics to change how we live fiscally, socially and freely. My favorite color is green or at least was until reading this book, now I just see red as I read how Greens have influenced, coerced and lied to the entire world regarding stewardship of our planet.

  • Pray the "Greens" don't take us back to Erewhon
    This is a book which every American should read but which will likely be read only by those who shun slogans and propaganda and think for themselves. In it, the author draws back the curtain of obfuscation and lets us see the radical environmentalists and self-styled "Greens" as they really are -- and it is not a pretty sight. It is a disturbing and frightening picture of a politically motivated movement which has been working diligently for over forty years to destroy the United States of America as it was founded, along with its economy and our American way of life. Sadly for America, and for the rest of us, those who would benefit most by reading this book probably won't.

    Reading between the lines: It can be seen that there is a loosely knit collection of like minded groups, all well funded and politically connected, and all with similar motives. Some would eliminate man from the face of the Earth so as to preserve the forests, plants, animals, and all of pristine nature. Others, based upon their propaganda, would "save the planet" from an imagined threat of "man made global warming." Still others would "level the playing field" with other nations by hamstringing and crippling America's economy. Still others have an eye toward a "One-World Government" ruled by the United Nations and run by elite leaders such as themselves. Some are simply trying to live up to their father's expectations or are in it for the money, based on their investments in "Green" technology such as solar power and wind farms. And there are many others. But the end result of all their seemingly independent efforts will, as the author makes clear, be to expand the Government and its bureaucracies, and lead us ultimately to a socialist style of Government with less freedom, less mobility, more regimentation, higher costs, and a lower standard of living - all without accomplishing any of their avowed goals.

    In contemplating the world in which the so-called "Greens" would have us live: I couldn't help recalling the mythical utopian society found in Samuel Butler's novel "Erewhon" first published in 1872. Following a civil war in Erewhon, fought between those in favor of machines and those opposed to them, all machines were banned in the country - even down to watches and clocks. Then the intellectual elitists mandated that it was immoral to kill animals for food and Erewhon became a nation of vegetarians. That was fine until the intellectuals decided that it was just as wrong to kill fruits and vegetables, whereupon the people were only allowed to eat those delicacies when they began to rot and fall from the trees. Then, as if this weren't bad enough, crime and corruption were deemed to be legal, but you could be sent to prison for up to twenty years for getting sick.

    I, for one, hope the "Greens" aren't leading us back to Erewhon, but I wouldn't count on it. Great book - five stars.
