Overview

Environmental insiders Michael Shellenberger and Ted Nordhaus argue that the environmental movement has not evolved with the times and is out of touch with modern American values. They call for a new aspirational politics that will be capable of tackling our most pressing challenges.

""'The Death of Environmentalism'...has provoked a civil war among tree-huggers for its assertion that "'modern environmentalism, with all of its unexamined assumptions, outdated concepts, and exhausted strategies, must die so that something new can live.' Sad to say, the authors are right."-New York Times
