|Summary||The title of this show was the subtitle of Mr. Huber's latest book, titled Hard Green. An exhilarating tour of planet Earth, from fanning technology to trace toxins, from global warming to the correlation between wealth and conservation. One sample: WFB: "People who have read your book ... are now referring to it as the great answer to Al Gore's book. I mean, it's a lot of other things too, but is it correct that you sort of take him on pretty directly? ..." PH: "The book wasn't written with the express purpose of debating our Vice President, but I do think his book bears re-reading by people who want to see just how silly--forgive me, but just how silly modern environmentalism can get. Where it is coherent, and it often isn't, it really puts forward a conception of things and where our society is going that is tremendously gloomy and pessimistic, and it seems to me refuted, where it's concrete enough to be refuted at all, by all the available evidence and empirical trends in recent history."|
