Michael Shellenberger on how the left got climate change, addiction, and prostitution wrong
On the podcast, I speak with author of "San Fransicko" and "Apocalypse Never," Michael Shellenberger.
Michael Shellenberger is a leading energy expert, founder and president of Environmental Progress, cofounder of the California Peace Coalition, 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 climate change, the addiction crisis, and prostitution legislation wrong, advocating for solutions that do more harm than good.
