Green Hell
by Steven Milloy

From the Inside Flap:

Big Brother Has Turned Green

The environmental movement has cultivated a warm and fuzzy public image, but behind the smiley-face 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 exposé, 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 self-denial, 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.

"Green Hell is the `inconvenient truth' on extremist, growth-killing environmentalism. A must-read for those interested in keeping America free and prosperous."

--Steve Forbes, President and Chief Executive Officer of Forbes

"This book describes why the world can't afford to fall for global warming alarmism and environmental hysteria. Steve Milloy shows how to avoid the environmentalists' vision of our future."

--Vaclav Klaus, President of the European Union and President of the Czech Republic

"Fasting, denial of any creature comfort, self flagellation, the hair shirt, have forever been the prescription of the priestly class for the achievement of grace. As Steve Milloy points out in this entertaining book, nothing has changed but the names of the priestly caste; from Torquemada to Al Gore. Just as the medieval cardinals and popes lived lives of luxury and excess while advocating poverty and submission for their adherents, so do the green prophets assail the rest of us with prescriptions of denial while they wallow in a jet setting lifestyle, gorge on government grants and other handouts mainly from misguided corporations and philanthropic foundations, meanwhile justifying their actions by the purchase of carbon offsets which bear a very close resemblence to papal indulgences."

--Dr. G. Bryant Macfie, Perth, Western Australia, amazon.com reviewer
