Michael Shellenberger has been a climate, environmental, and social justice activist for over 30 years. In the 1990s he helped save California’s last unprotected ancient redwood forest, and inspired Nike to improve factory conditions in Asia. In the 2000s, Michael advocated for a “new Apollo project” in clean energy, which resulted in a $150 billion public investment in clean tech between 2009 and 2015.
Recently he has delved into issues related to housing and homelessness. He has called for California to declare a state of emergency regarding its addiction, mental health, and housing crises. He has authored widely-read articles and reports on the topic including “Why California Keeps Making Homelessness Worse,” and “California in Danger.” In 2021 his book San Fransicko: Why Progressives Ruin Cities was published. Micheal will speak to us about how many progressive policies such as those in San Francisco are creating such havoc.
Micheal lives in Berkeley and advises policy makers around the globe on a variety of topics. His writing is featured in national publications including Forbes, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal and makes frequent appearances on radio and TV news. Some of his books will be available for sale at our meeting.
