This book tells how the government and environmental elites will soon have you under their Green thumb - and what you can do to stop them. It seems everywhere you look, all you see is green. People are 'living Green', businesses are 'going Green', and consumers are 'buying Green'. But pretty soon this trendy 'Green' lifestyle won't be voluntary, it will be mandatory. Steven Milloy, founder of JunkScience.com, shows how the government and environmental elites will soon have you under their Green thumb, controlling the speed you drive, the temperature of your home, even when you can retire...and that's just the tip of their melting iceberg.In this shocking new book, Milloy reveals: how the government may soon control your energy use and the temperature of your shower; why drive-thru restaurants and bottled water may be banned; why today's high food and gas prices will soon seem cheap; and, how an all-Green society will cut into your travel plans, retirement fund, dictate the size of your house, and more. Unbelievable but true, Milloy argues that in our haste to save the planet, we're dismantling the progressive society we live in for the sake of Green controls that aren't actually helping the environment.
