Hysteria’s History Part II

New Video Series on the Environment

Episode 2: Hysteria’s History: Why Haven’’t We Run Out of Oil?

“Hysteria’s History: Why Haven’t We Run Out of Oil?,” is the second in a four-part series aimed at exposing young people to the historical progression of environmental alarmism that has often resulted in poor and contradictory policy proposals. This new web-based series is part of PRI’s effort to inject facts and reason into the debates over climate change, water quality, and other environmental policy issues. PRI hopes that this new web series will be used by teachers, professors, and student groups on college campuses to show how the problems facing the environment need real solutions based on science.

The videos are based on PRI’s Center on the Environment’s brief Hysteria’s History: Environmentalism in Context by Dr. Kaleita and Gregory R. Forbes. The next video in the series will focus on myths surrounding the depletion of oil and gas reserves.
