Michael Shellenberger, Founder - President of Environmental Progress: Humanity stagnated for thousands of years plundering the environment and using slave power. Along came fossil fuels and did away with most of that suffering. See Vaclav Smil - ENERGY AND CIVILIZATION A HISTORY. Then along came extreme environmentalists in the 1960s and countries supporting them determined to make North America, Europe, Japan and South Africa energy poor in order to rule over them. Now comes an excellent advocate for humanity and the environment, Michael Shellenberger. See the video of his TED talk about nuclear and the environment.

Michael Shellenberger, Environmental Progress: • En Allemagne, selon les Amis de la Terre (BUND), de nouvelles éoliennes offshore pourraient « conduire à l’extinction d’espèces individuelles », y compris le marsouin, rare et menacé. • En Amérique du Nord, les populations de chauves-souris migratrices pourraient disparaître, selon les scientifiques, si l’expansion de l’énergie éolienne se poursuit. Une seule ferme solaire californienne, Ivanpah, a nécessité le massacre de centaines de tortues du désert, et tue chaque année 6 000 oiseaux en les brûlant en vol. Vous pensez peut-être que ces impacts sont minimes par rapport à d’autres menaces ? Après tout, les chats domestiques tuent entre un et quatre milliards d’oiseaux par an aux États-Unis.
