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.

Citing the tactics and goals of Green groups as explained by their own activists and leaders, Green Hell demonstrates:

* How Green pressure campaigns threaten the safety of your home and your car, and public health overall
* Why the election of President Obama portends a giant leap forward for coercive Green policies
* Why Greens obstruct the use of all forms of energy--even the renewable sources they tout to the public
* How wealthy Green elites stand to profit fabulously from the restrictions and regulations they seek to impose on the rest of us
* How Green pressure campaigns are hamstringing the military and endangering our national security
* Why big business is not only knuckling under to the Greens, but is aggressively promoting the green agenda to the detriment of its own stockholders
* What you can do to help stop the great Green machine

A one-of-a-kind, comprehensive takedown of the entire environmental movement, Green Hell will open your eyes to a looming threat to our economy, our civil liberties, and the entire American way of life.

From the Back Cover

Praise for Green Hell

"Green Hell explains why Americans can't afford to fall for Al Gore's `the debate is over' line on global warming. While we're all for the environment, Green Hell explains why we need to oppose the environmentalists."
--Fred Barnes, Executive Editor, the Weekly Standard

"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

"Regardless of whether you believe global warming is a fraud, the fact is that the current depression, the past spike in oil prices, and the coming technology of electric cars are all going to solve whatever problem exists. Liberals want to use climate change as an excuse to take over the economy and regulate everything and this book exposes their plans."
--Dick Morris, FOX News commentator and former political consultant to Bill Clinton

"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

"Free market capitalism is still the best path to prosperity. Green Hell is a must-read for anyone who wants to keep America on that path and away from Soviet-style command-and-control environmentalism."
--Larry Kudlow, Host, CNBC's The Kudlow Report

Contrary to what Milloy says, the amounts of carbon dioxide not emitted by hybrid cars IS noticed by the atmosphere.
Stephen Pletko
They are renegades who will manipulate your life with a vengence - and after you read Milloy's book and get anrgy - then take steps to fight back.
Brian G. Valentine
Mr. Milloy also presents some ideas how to oppose the Green agenda and the radical environmentalist reach for power and control.

It was not that long ago that the main complaint of left wing critics of the American economy was that it produced poverty and appalling social conditions. "Capitalism" was simply a code word for the rich getting richer and everyone else getting poorer. And it was certainly true that the "rich" did get richer, often by improving the life of their customers. Rockefeller did not make money by raising the price of oil; he made money by lowering it and improving the standard of living for millions. But, while the original critique was flawed, the sentiment was one of generating wealth for average Americans. Even as late as 1962 when Michael Harrington wrote The Other America this sentiment still dominated left wing politics. How things have changed.

Today, the political left is "green" and their main complaint is not that capitalism produces poverty. They know capitalism produces affluence. And they oppose it. Americans, they complain, consume "too much" and need to make do with less, because the planet is threatened by a whole host of potential ills that require we act now, regardless of the cost. Global warming is only the latest of their concerns, having replaced the completely discredited 'population bomb' threatened in the late 1960s. And their proposed solutions, outlined in their own words, are truly frightening. The old left proposals did not produce affluence, but the new "green" proposals will surely accomplish their goal of impoverishing people if they have their way and increasingly, as Green Hell author Steve Milloy warns, they are.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Mr. Milloy has written a very undertandable and well written warning about the radical environmentalists and their agenda. Mr. Milloy demonstrates that the radical environomentists or Greens are both powerful and pernicious. He demonstrates the environmentalist radicals are:

1. Deceptive. The Greens present one face in public which states that the Green agenda would not effect the prosperity of the country and the world. In their small true believer journals the Greens speak differently. There the green agenda means great changes in the society and reduced living standards.

2. Against all energy production. The Greens are not only opposed to the use of hydrocarbon fuels because of the global warming hoax. The Greens also fight nuclear power and hydroelectric dams. And the Greens often times oppose renewable energy. Thus the Greens are against energy production, the engine of prosperity and well being.

3. Anti-Science. The Greens work to ignore and silence scientific facts that refute their arguments. They consistently try to label opposing scientists as energy company stooges whose arguments should be ignored. Moreover the Greens often propound false science such as th hockey stick graph of the temperature of the earth.

4. Repressive. The Greens want to reduce the mobility and living standards of Americans. Moreover many Greens oppose political freedom and try to replace freedom of speech with censorship.

5. Hypocritical. The Greens often preach consumer frugality. However Green leaders such as Al Gore live in luxury and try to make millions of dollars from carbon rationing schemes.

6. Lust for power. Greens want to control the life of everyone in America and on the planet.

Format: Hardcover
At one time in my life I was proud to be an educated scientist (honors degree in Physical Chemistry with advanced studies in large scale thermodynamic systems), but suddenly to see so-called UN experts with no college degrees at all, folks with degrees in civil engineering or others with no backgrounds in science at all touted as CLIMATE EXPERTS going around calling for 3 trillion dollars in carbon taxes and bogus claims about climate change and global warming, makes me ashamed of the SELL OUT OF AMERICAN SCIENCE to GREED.

Large grant suppliers give massive amounts of money to colleges and universities to pay off these so-called scientists to swear by the CO2 caused global warming when in fact they all know that it is impossible for that to happen at 380 parts per million. It would take 500 times that concentration for CO2 to even come close to 10% of the greenhouse gas effect of water vapor that occurs each night as the sun goes down to prevent the nighttime temperatures from going to 65 degrees below zero Fahrenheit.

Steve Milloy sounds a wake up call for all Americans here! If you want to wake up someday and find that some Federal Judge just shut down the electricity to your home and business because the natural gas power plant that supplies it to you has somehow ENDANGERED some useless critter somewhere, then go back asleep! Then you can wake up the next month and find your brownout ridden electrical service is costing you 10 times what it did in 2008!

Format: Hardcover
If you find yourself noticing that the Green Movement seems to have a broader and deeper agenda than you had previously thought, this book is for you. Steve Milloy, who founded and runs the website Junk Science, provides us with a tour behind the pleasant façade the Greens have carefully created to capture broad public support. This behind the scenes look isn't pretty because the Greens really don't just want clean air, clean water, and a nice pretty forest for Bambi and Thumper to romp in. They want you to become extinct. Yes, they want fewer people any way they can get them to go away. So, to accommodate them please don't breed. Lacking that, they want you to live a more constrained life. Never mind that Al Gore and his pals live a completely unconstrained and ultra-lavish lifestyle. You know those carbon credits he says he buys to neutralize his gargantuan carbon footprint? He buys them from his own company. Well, actually, he doesn't really buy them, he gets them as a perk. Really. And when you buy those carbon credits from his company you are helping him buy the huge home, the big yacht, and consume more electricity than you and your ten best friends.

This book shows you the Green rationale, how they have gained power, how they use their power, and how they intend to put you back to walking or riding a bike as much as they can. You will also learn about the way they have created an artificial energy shortage, a fresh water crisis, and the coming push to get you on a purely vegetarian diet. Really. Yes, really.
