SHELLENBERGER: On Behalf Of Environmentalists, I Apologize For The Climate Scare
On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem.
I may seem like a strange person to be saying all of this. I have been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmentalist for 30.

When pandemics strike, logically where will they do the most damage? Of course, in areas with the highest concentration of population. It’s no different than any disaster or frankly even a war. During World War II, for example, bombing cities obviously inflicted much more damage and hardship than striking farmland.
Looking at any map of coronavirus concentration, it’s plain to see where the outbreak spikes are occurring.
If you guessed in most major cities, you’d be correct. This is a perfectly logical and reasonable conclusion, even before looking at a map. After all, a close-proximity communicable virus will spread more effectively with a population that must remain in, well, close proximity. read more
