New Book Shines Light on the Green Movement and the Politics Behind It
Tackling the big issues at the forefront of the green movement – global warming, polar bear extinction, electric cars – Kaiser disassembles the perception of each issue, points out the politics behind it and finally gives the reader the facts in black and white. With a straight-no-chaser sensibility, he gives the reader the tools and information to draw their own conclusions. “‘Convenient Myths’ is written for anyone wishing to get to the bottom of the matter,” he writes, “without being over-burdened by details. Here are the crucial facts, unadulterated, and easy to understand.”
Kaiser points at the ever-widening chasm between the goals of politics and the goals of science as the reason why such misinformation has been allowed into the mainstream. He writes:
At the beginning of the second decade in the 21st century, with its great speed of disseminating information via radio, television, phone and the Internet, one might think that perceptions, politics, and science would begin to converge. Surprisingly – and regrettably – the opposite appears to be the case. Common public perceptions, politics, and science are as far apart as ever. Even on issues affecting the entire world, the same scientific evidence is used to justify radically different political actions. In reality, politics and science are drifting apart further than ever and further than many scientists can be comfortable with.
