Michael Shellenberger on how the left got climate change, addiction, and prostitution wrong
Michael Shellenberger is a leading energy expert, founder and president of Environmental Progress, cofounder of the California Peace Coalition (an alliance of parents of children killed by fentanyl, parents of homeless addicts, and recovering addicts), and the best-selling author of “San Fransicko: Why Progressives Ruin Cities,” and “Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All.” He recently co-founded Public, an investigative and exploratory journalism platform, on Substack, with journalist Leighton Woodhouse. Michael lives in Berkeley, California.
I spoke with him about the ways progressives are getting everything from solutions to climate change, the addiction crisis, and prostitution legislation wrong, advocating for solutions that do more harm than good.
