The Students of Objectivism at the University of Michigan are pleased to announce our speaker event featuring Dr. Keith Lockitch, to take place Wednesday, February 3 at 7:30p.m. Dr. Lockitch will be presenting “The Real Goal of the Green Climate Crusade” located at Angell Hall, Auditorium C.
This talk is free and open to the public, and the event will include an open Q&A with Dr. Lockitch afterward.
Environmentalists claim that our use of carbon-based energy is altering the climate, making us more vulnerable to climate disasters. Human survival, they insist, requires the immediate abandonment of fossil fuels in favor of carbon-free sources. So why do environmentalist groups vehemently oppose projects involving every alternative form of energy ever proposed to replace fossil fuels–including wind farms and solar power plants? And why do they ignore the dramatic degree to which industrial development under capitalism has reduced the risk of harm from severe climate events? Before we rush headlong into drastic climate policies and energy rationing, a critical examination of these policies is urgently needed.
We hope to see you there!
