Women of Washington is an educational organization with a focus on understanding local, national, and global issues that are critical to our world today.
Author and journalist Michael Shellenberger is coming to WOW from Berkeley, California where he lives with his wife, Helen Lee and their two children. It’s also where he keeps his suitcases and where he periodically returns to refresh after traveling. He does a lot of traveling.
Shellenberger was born (1971) and raised in Colorado to Mennonite parents. He writes about politics, the environment, climate change and nuclear power. His work has won him high accolades. Shellenberger’s journalistic repertoire is wide. Lately, he has been in the news and in front of congressional hearings frequently. This visit with Tucker Carlson about the folly of climate change political policies is a great interview and a good introduction for us to Shellenberger.
This is an excerpt from his website that includes several active hotlinks to browse.
"Shellenberger is a leading investigative journalist who has broken major stories on crime and drug policy; homelessness; Amazon deforestation; rising climate resilience; growing eco-anxiety; the U.S. government’s role in the fracking revolution; and climate change and California’s fires. And he testifies and advises governments around the world including in the United States, United Kingdom, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, the Philippines, Australia, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany."
