May 17, 2017 (Newswire.com) –
Today, businesses are trapped in the green box of sustainable development. Academics, government leaders, public opinion, and thousands of laws and regulations demand the adoption of sustainability. In response, companies spend billions on renewable energy, carbon credits, biofuels, and other green policies in an effort to counter the coming environmental apocalypse.
However, one man who has studied these claims asserts that sustainable policies have negligible positive effect on the environment. Scientific evidence and trends show that fears of overpopulation, rising pollution, climate destruction, and resource depletion are unfounded. He says there is little evidence that global warming is mainly caused by humans and, further, states that human activity cannot counter it. Thus, the half trillion dollars spent annually across the globe to fight climate change is a vast misallocation of financial resources. Steve Goreham, author of Outside the Green Box: Rethinking Sustainable Development, offers firms a prescription for a sensible and evidence-based corporate environmental policy.
“None of the four foundations of sustainable development — overpopulation, rising pollution, climate destruction, or resource depletion — are supported by societal trends or scientific evidence.”
“None of the four foundations of sustainable development — overpopulation, rising pollution, climate destruction, or resource depletion — are supported by societal trends or scientific evidence,” writes Goreham, the executive director of the Climate Science Coalition, an independent, non-political association of scientists, engineers, energy experts, and concerned citizens.
“World fertility rates have dropped by half over the last 50 years and population growth appears headed for a soft landing by mid-century. Environmental damage, as measured by air and water pollution levels, is dropping in developed nations. Developing nations will soon reach the turning point in income and will begin to improve their environment. Earth’s climate is dominated by natural, not human-caused factors.”
At first glance, Goreham may just be written off as a climate-denier, but his book directly addresses each of the major issues and concerns relating to the planet’s environment. He shows, through studies, facts, and government data that the world is misallocating its resources to fight a problem it can’t change or, in certain cases, need not try to change. Instead, he highlights improvements made in cleaning the air and water, while showcasing where more needs to be done.
“Pollution is a more immediate and controllable problem,” says Goreham. “Trends show that nations reduce pollution as they modernize and become wealthier.”
Goreham outlines a sensible green environmental policy for Corporate America and citizens. He also provides encouraging data that shows how improvements have been made across the globe when it comes to how we use resources, grow economically, and recycle and dispose of waste products in an efficient, cleaner manner. His book is contrarian to all that the public has been led to believe about hybrid cars, organic foods, wind energy, carbon credits, and fluorescent light bulbs — but the former Motorola executive, author and speaker makes a clear and strong case for rethinking our public, business, and personal policy as it relates to caring for our planet.
Steve Goreham is the Executive Director of the Climate Science Coalition of America, an independent, non-political association of scientists and concerned citizens focused on informing Americans about the realities of climate science and energy economics. He is author of two books on energy and climate change with over 100,000 copies in print.
