The Really Inconvenient Truths CEI Senior Fellow Iain Murray has been promoting his book The Really Inconvenient Truths: Seven Environmental Catastrophes Liberals Don’t Want You to Know About – Because They Helped Cause Them with a series of articles and short videos. This is the book that reveals that not only does the Green emperor have no clothes, but he is a tyrant who starves his people and burns their land. Iain also shows that the traditional tools we have used against over-mighty tyrants – property rights, the rule of law, oversight and accountability – are actually essential to environmental protection.
