WHY CONSERVATISM HAS BECOME ANTI-CONSERVATION
The Science and Politics of an Environmental Maladaptation
This important book sheds light on the adversarial stalemate that exists between government officials when dealing with global warming. Here is thought-provoking, thoroughly researched information that will help you more easily disseminate the overwhelming evidence that the planet is endangered. You're presented with a realistic picture of the world today that is not without hope.
A persuasive argument is presented for removing politics from science so policies that protect our planet can move forward. Lechich discusses how genetically transmitted aspects of fear fuel inclinations to be conservative or competitive, whereas nonfear-based liberal ideologies lead to cooperation. An exciting, innovative approach that integrates the fields of psychology and evolution sciences is offered as a method for overcoming fear and allowing people to open their eyes to the necessity of change.
