The Really Inconvenient Truths ...

Posted: Jul 23, 2008 9:12 AM

Last night, I attended a terrific little book reception for Iain Murray, author of "The Really Inconvenient Truths" -- a book which pokes holes in environmentalist movement dogma.  The event took place on the rooftop garden of Christian Josi, one of the event organizers.  Josi says of the book, "It’s one of my all-time favorite books by one of my all-time favorite people."

Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK) -- a champion on this issue -- was kind enough to attend -- and introduce Murray.  Inhofe was unstaffed, and actually drove himself to the event, which took place in Old Town Alexandria, VA. 

Murray's remarks were brief and witty.  His British accent would probably make him sound erudite were he to merely read the phone book -- but his analysis is well reasoned and compelling. 

Last night's talk focused primarily on the harm radical environmentalism has caused.  From wildfires in California, to eliminating d.d.t. -- the best control for Malaria in Africa -- adherence to radical environmentalism has led to dire, if unintended -- consequences.  Anyone interested in this topic would be well-served to read Murray's book.
