What Others Are Saying...

“. . . Peter Huber’s “conservative manifesto” for the environment is welcome. With considerable courage, braving attacks from both the establishment right and the politically tone-deaf ideological purists of the various think tanks, Huber salutes Roosevelt for his true geatness as a federal conservationist.”
     - Bill McKibben, from “Acquiantance of the Earth,”
The New York Review of Books, May 25, 2000

“Greener Than Thou: Two books offer disparate plans for the environment movement”
     - Mark Hertsgaard, The New York Times Book Review, May 7, 2000

“Peter Huber's brilliant exploration of the ideology of environmentalism takes the breath away by its ingenuity, intensity, and polemical artistry. It is the richest contribution ever made to the greening of the political mind.”
     - William F. Buckley, Jr., Founder and Editor-in-Chief of National Review

“Too many liberals ignore thoughtful conservatives. Don’t make that mistake with Peter Huber. His new book may make you mad, but it will definitely make you reexamine your assumptions.”
     - Charles Peters, Editor-in-Chief, Washington Monthly

“This is a great book by one of the most original and brilliant minds--and best writers--of our time. Whether you’re a Greenie or a Greaser, you will never think about the environment, or environmentalism, the same way again, but you probably will think about it more hopefully.”
     - George Gilder, author of Wealth and Poverty and Microcosm
