The Environmental Alarmist: A Political Satire

DA author Michael Contarino joins us on June 18 to discuss his book The Environmental Alarmist: A Political Satire.Hello DAUK Political Book Club enthusiasts!

In a not-so-distant future, in a world ravaged by climate change and invasive pests, humanity still chooses self-deception over sacrifice.  When a sly US Senator and a jaded propagandist concoct a longshot and cynically opportunistic "environmentalist" campaign for the Presidency, it looks like just more of the old, phony politics. But then things start to get real. And hilarious. And hopeful. Because the politician and the propagandist start to care about the planet. As they begin telling voters the truth, they also stop lying to themselves.

…a hilarious satire…  Bill Richardson, former US Presidential candidate, US Energy Secretary, and Governor of  New Mexico

Who says there’s nothing funny about environmental collapse? Paul Begala, former chief political strategist for Bill Clinton and Al Gore

Michael writes political satire and historical fiction.  He taught political science at several universities in Italy, UK, Switzerland and the US, and he was a speechwriter and senior foreign policy adviser to a US presidential candidate.  Michael is a DA member in Basel, Switzerland.

The Environmental Alarmist is available for £19.60 / $23 or on Kindle for £8 / $9.49
