Video Event | Boosting the Middle Class and Improving the Environment: A Discussion with Michael Shellenberger

This event will premiere on this page at 12:00 p.m. EDT, Tuesday, July 21.

Join Hudson Institute for a discussion with Michael Shellenberger, an environmental journalist and author, on how high-tech energy policies can be used to revitalize the environment, the economy, and the middle class. Hudson Institute Distinguished Fellow Walter Russell Mead will moderate the conversation.

Shellenberger has developed and promoted solutions based on high-tech environmental policy for decades and advised policymakers across the United States, Europe, and Asia. The founder of Environmental Progress, Michael is one of the leading proponents of ecomodernism, a movement that promotes economy-boosting solutions to environmental problems. His newest book, entitled “Apocalypse Never,” debunks the most harmful alarmism about climate and the environment and makes the case for science-based policies that address challenging environmental problems that also bring broad economic benefit.

This conversation is the first in a series entitled, “The Future of the Middle Class” by Hudson Institute’s Center for the Future of Liberal Society. In this series, Hudson Distinguished Fellow Walter Russell Mead will moderate discussions with thought-provoking policy experts about some of the most pressing challenges associated with rebuilding the economy and promoting the prosperity of America’s middle class.
