Take that, Al Gore! Murray, an ex-pat British minister, attempts to refute liberal environmentalist thinking, which he says has evolved into a modern-day religion. Among his targets are biofuels (expensive and impractical), government regulations, and tree-huggers, to name just a few. This is anything but an objective analysis, but Robertson Dean keeps his reading fairly evenhanded. When the text calls for skepticism, he injects it, but he never rants. His pleasant, engaging voice keeps one listening even if one takes issue with what he's saying. His recommendations include fewer governmental regulations and more private stewardship of resources. It's a well-organized thesis and a well-read audio. J.B.G. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
