Steve Milloy talked about the the liberal sustainability movement and its connections to academia. He recounted his own history working in the U.S. Department of Energy and analyzing Environmental Protection Agency regulations. Mr. Milloy chronicled the rise of the environmental movement beginning with Rachel Carson’s critique of DDT and including population control advocates Thomas Malthus and Paul Ehrlich. He touched on a range of topics including landfills, water supply, and fracking and responded to questions from members of the audience.

“The Sustainability Movement in the College Petri Dish” was the luncheon address at the 25th anniversary conference of the National Association of Scholars, “A Mighty Maze: Charting the Future of American Higher Education,” held at the Harvard Club of New York City. close
