Paul Driessen: The Immoral Policies of the Sustainability Movement

April 19, 2017

The policies pushed by advocates of sustainable development, "are not just wrong, they are unethical. . They are an insult to human dignity . inhumane, and even genocidal?"

Paul Driessen, policy advisor to the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow, argues the policies pushed by sustainability advocates to prevent purported global warming and resource depletion are deadly and indefensible. In an effort to prevent potential harms to people 100 years from now, environmental radicals promoting sustainability would end fossil fuel use resulting in the deindustrialization of developed countries, and preventing the billions living in abject poverty in developing countries today from gaining the benefits of modern health care, electric power, basic sanitation and water and other modern amenities environmentalists themselves take for granted. Sustainability is a recipe for disease, malnutrition, starvation and premature death.
