    Environmentalists should spend less time on social media and more time in the forest. They might then learn that protecting birds is more important than virtue signaling. If you’re wondering why the debate over the environment is as stagnant as the air on a sultry July day, think about the tactics the environmentalists have used […]

    • Date: 18/01/18
    • Lord Donoughue, Global Warming Policy Foundation

    Professor Paunio has enjoyed a distinguished career in global public health, both in Europe and the USA.
