Learning from Failure

"Climate change activists no longer dwell on impending climate doom, but on the economic windfall that will result from embracing the 'green' economy."

“Advocates of drastic cuts in carbon-dioxide emissions now speak a lot less than they once did about climate change. Climate campaigners changed their approach after the collapse of the Copenhagen climate-change summit last December and the revelation of mistakes in the United Nations climate panel’s work—as well as in response to growing public skepticism and declining interest. Although some activists still rely on scare tactics—witness the launch of an advertisement depicting the bombing of anybody who is hesitant to embrace carbon cuts—many activists now spend more time highlighting the ‘benefits’ of their policy prescription.”
