«Environmentalists are losing. Major indicators of global ecological health are heading in the wrong direction. From atmospheric carbon to species extinctions, chemical pollution load, biodiversity, acres of old-growth forest, size of oceanic deadzones, and extent of coral reefs, the news is bad.»

«Most environmentalism today isn’t about water, biodiversity, habitat destruction, or crossover issues such as environmental racism. It’s not even about stopping global warming directly by shutting down drilling rigs, pipelines, and refineries.»

[…]

«Rather, it’s about promoting electric vehicles, solar panels, wind turbines, and other forms of “green” technology.»
