In Today’s Heartland Daily Podcast, Managing Editor of Environment and Climate News H. Sterling Burnett speaks with Rachelle Peterson and Peter Wood of the National Association of scholars. After sharing the history and mission of the NAS, Peter and Rachelle discuss their new report: “Sustainability: Higher Education’s New Fundamentalism.”
This report examines the thousands of sustainability programs and efforts that have been incorporated into college and university missions, operations and curricula and how the sustainability movement threatens to undermine democratic political institution and market capitalism in a quest to take us back to some utopian, bucolic simpler time with out modern technology and the reliance on fossil fuels for energy. The NAS report shows how colleges are being led by the nose by left-leaning institutions to buy into false promises of sustainability and climate alarmism, and how those same schools are in turn inculcating or attempting to brainwash students into rejecting the economic and political systems that has made modern liberal education and economic well-being possible and instead embracing paternalistic, elitist ideals of how society should be.
