Rupert Darwall: Radical Environmentalism and the Climate Deep State
Author Rupert Darwall discusses the totalitarian roots of radical environmentalism and the “Climate-Industrial-Complex” or “Climate Deep State” composed of NGOs, government agencies, oligarchs, academia and green technology companies. He explains how the climate change movement began as a political agenda with roots in Nazi Germany and 1970s Swedish technocracy and that renewable energy cannot feasibly replace carbon energy sources.
