The Nazi Roots of Environmentalism

In the second episode of Close Encounters, Rupert Darwall and Ben Weingarten discuss Darwall’s new book Green Tyranny: Exposing the Totalitarian Roots of the Climate Industrial Complex. Darwall’s book covers a variety of topics including the Nazi roots of the modern environmentalist movement that he and Weingarten discuss in this video.

NOTE: The phrase behind the speaker is German for Blood and Soil in which reverence for ecology which included sacrificing human life to nature was a theme of Nazi ideology.
