The Environmental Alarmist by Michael Contarino
If you are bothered by greenwashing, baffled by eco-denialism, and bewildered by our seemingly inexorable march toward global environmental catastrophe, this book is for you.
In a not-so-distant future, in a world ravaged by climate change and invasive pests, humanity still chooses self-deception over sacrifice. Even the ubiquitous green flies buzzing around our heads don’t concentrate our minds on what humanity’s survival requires.
When a sly US Senator and a jaded propagandist concoct a longshot and cynically opportunistic “environmentalist” campaign for the Presidency, it looks like just more of the old, phony politics. But then things start to get real. And hilarious. And hopeful. Because the politician and the propagandist start to care about the planet. As they begin telling voters the truth, they also stop lying to themselves.
If you remain hopeful that maybe it’s not too late, that against the odds humanity might still get it together and face reality – and especially if you haven’t lost your sense of humor — you will love The Environmental Alarmist.
