Dr. James Wanliss
With so many crises and threats facing humanity it is easy to become afraid. It is easy to panic. But how does one decide whether a crisis is real and deserving of urgent attention? When is a stampede reasonable? Since around April 22, 1970 the consciousness of flower children most visibly emerged as a potent political force. Earth Day represented the blooming of that consciousness, teaching that human development must be stunted to 'save the planet.' The EPA is the fruit, binding US citizens with increasingly onerous green chains, limiting personal liberty, economic opportunity. Is it worth it? In this talk Dr. James Wanliss, will demonstrate that eco-hysteria not only costs economically, in lower standards of living, but it is also costing lives.
