John Berlau talked about his book, Eco-Freaks: Environmentalism Is Hazardous to Your Health!, published by Nelson Current. He argued that environmentalists, and the environmental movement in general, harm people more than help them. He claimed that people’s faith in the idea that “nature knows best” blinds them to the reality of environmental phenomena such as global warming, pollution, and pesticides. In addition, he challenged approaches to environmental issues that have gained attention in the media, including former Vice President Al Gore’s position on global warming and assessments linking Hurricane Katrina to human activity. After his presentation he responded to audience members' questions. close
