Ronald Bailey isn’t surprised by those who regularly renew warnings of environmental Armageddon. The award winning author and Reason journalist says there’s a simple reason for so much gloom: “doom sells.”
From Peak Oil to the Population Bomb, Bailey goes through a veritable anthology of debunked environmental doomsday prophecies on today’s episode of Federalist Radio.
Discussing his new book, The End of Doom, Bailey says human innovation offers many reasons for hope. He argues that liberal biologists need to adjust their paradigm for the capacity of technology, and recognize that “humans don’t just use up resources. We make up more.”
