His book, The Conserver Solution (Doubleday), which popularized the Conserver Society concept in the late 1970s, became the manual for those interested in incorporating environmental factors into economic life. An advisor to President Carter’s Task Force on Global Resources and Environment (the Global 2000 Report) in the late 1970’s, he has since been at the forefront of movements to reform foreign aid, stop nuclear power expansion, save the world’s rainforests and convert free roads to toll roads. He is a columnist with National Post, a former columnist for the Globe and Mail, and author of seven books, including Energy Shock (Doubleday), Toronto Sprawls (University of Toronto Press) and, most recently, The Deniers (Richard Vigilante Books). Larry Solomon’s National Post columns are available at Energy Probe, ranked #1 among Canadian environmental websites by Alexa. The Deniers, now available in paperback, was the #1 environmental best seller in both Canada and the U.S. in 2008. Available at Amazon.ca and Amazon.com. Puzzled by some aspect of the global warming debate? Ask the Deniers can help. Wednesday, October 20, 2010.
