Iain Murray exposes the harsh and dangerous deeds of the environmentalists who, in their passion to save the world, are actually using and wasting energy, endangering the plants and animals they profess they want to save, and are killing people. He makes these claims and backs them up with facts.

Murray states, “the liberal environmental movements are grounded in the idea that freedom is detrimental to the environment.” That statement might be held suspect if we weren’t reading about politicians who want to further limit freedom in order to save the planet. Great Britain is talking about requiring citizens to account for (sounds like a WWII ration book) the energy they use. The U.S. has a Presidential candidate saying we can’t drive large cars, eat what we want and keep ourselves as warm or cool as we’d like because the ‘rest’ of the world won’t like it.

The Really Inconvenient Truths begins with Al Gore and his global warming alarmism and busts the former Vice President’s arguments. Murray then talks about Gore and other celebrities who demand the populace ‘cut back and conserve,’ but they don’t do the same thing themselves.

Rachel Carson is considered a hero by environmentalists. The truth is, the banning of DDT is responsible for untold deaths in Africa due to the increase of malaria. Yes, DDT has its drawbacks, certainly, but one must balance the bad with the 500 million people a year who contract malaria.

Murray explains how the price of tortillas in Mexico is rising beyond the ability of people to pay for them. And it’s all about ethanol. Then there is the rainforest issue. No, not the cutting of the forests, but the killing of endangered species because of the use of biodiesel. Here’s a scary issue: pollution is causing fish to change sex and they are unable to reproduce. This is due to “the pill” entering our sewers and ending up in our rivers and oceans.

I found the quiet revisions of the Bible for environmental purposes frightening. And there are probably a large number of people who would be interested in the facts about immigration and the environment.

The book points out numerous problems caused by environmentalists. And it turns out Al Gore is a really dangerous man. The Really Inconvenient Truths is a book to read if you want to be prepared for the future we are heading for.

Murray suggests we all want a clean, safe environment, but he shows that it is not the liberal environmentalists who can deliver that. In fact they have greatly contributed to making the environment worse.
