Michael Shellenberger’s just released Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All has been called, “an extremely important book,” by none other than historian Richard Rhodes, who won the Pulitzer Prize for The Making of the Atomic Bomb. A studied examination of up-to-the-minute environmental issues, Apocalypse Never integrates science and lived experience to rescue a subject drowning in misunderstanding and partisanship.
Michael is a Time magazine “Hero of the Environment”; the winner of the 2008 Green Book Award from the Stevens Institute of Technology’s Center for Science Writings; and an invited expert reviewer of the next Assessment Report for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). He has written on energy and the environment for the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, Nature Energy, and other publications for two decades. He is the founder and president of Environmental Progress, an independent, nonpartisan research organization based in Berkeley, California.
James Strock served as the founding secretary of the California Environmental Protection Agency, as well as chief law enforcement officer of the United States EPA. He is a trustee of the Theodore Roosevelt Association and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
He is a bestselling author of four books on service, politics and leadership, including Theodore Roosevelt on Leadership: Executive Lessons from the Bully Pulpit and Disrupt Politics: Reset Washington.
