The Really Inconvenient Truths | [Iain Murray]

The Really Inconvenient Truths

Iain Murray's exposé reveals how environmental blowhards actually do more to waste energy, endanger species, and kill people than those they finger, while capitalism, hunting, and old-fashioned property rights have made the planet better. Rather than just myth busting and blame shifting, Murray offers applicable and effective solutions for each catastrophe - something the Left has yet to do.

Did you know that pollutants and estrogen from contraceptives are causing male fish in America to develop female sex organs? Or that ethanol, the liberals' favorite fuel, is destroying the world's rainforests? We hear about AIDS in Africa, but the number-one killer of children in Africa is malaria, and guess who banned the pesticide that used to have malaria under control?

    "Fascists are usually inconvenient"

    I remember watching Al Gore’s, “An Inconvenient Truth” and immediately afterwards being fairly upset. But as I had time to digest the messages of the movie, research the science a bit and think through it’s claims, the focus of my annoyance has changed. This book confirmed my suspicions that environmentalism has become the religion of choice for many and a powerful tool for proponents of fascism.

    I agreed with the author of this book on most of his points, especially with regard to individual property rights and the natural stewardship that should logically follow having an vested interest in one’s own land / home. On a number of other points I was educated. All in all, this was a worthwhile read.

    "it good to hear the other side"
    What did you love best about The Really Inconvenient Truths?

    i enjoyed reading the rest of the story it good to hear both side


    What other book might you compare The Really Inconvenient Truths to and why?

    i would say the book too big to fail would also be good to listen to if you enjoy this book becuse it also tell you more of the story


    What does Robertson Dean bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    i think listen give you the able to think about what you are reading more then just reading it sometime for me that very true as i have trouble with reading


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    i felt that it high lighted the fact that we really need to listen closely to what gov is telling us about what going on and need to take the time to think if it make sent to us

    "Too right wing in his politics."

    If the author would have acted in a unbiased manner he could have scored more points.

    He makes too many statements that simply cater to the right wing of the political spectrum.

    So basically in turns into a book about right against left and not as much about the subjects itself.

    "Too many reaches"

    Well it is good to hear a different take on issues that are impacting our lives today this author makes jumps and uses faulty logic far too often for this to be truly informative. This is more of a starting place to knowledge rather than somewhere to hang your hat.

    "Skeptic"

    I like to educate myself by challenging my own beliefs. AND I have been a skeptic of environmentalists for a few years. This book has taken me to a new place. I would recommend it highly.
