"The Left is losing the climate class war," written by Matt Huber, professor of geography and the environment, was published by UnHerd.

Huber argues that climate technocrats are driven by a moral vision of 'techno-behavioralism' that insists solving climate change requires policing and corralling the consumption of the masses.

"Rather than tackling the problem of who owns and controls fossil-fuel based production (a relative minority of society), carbon behaviouralism aims its sights on the 'irresponsible' choices of millions of consumers of all classes," says Huber.

"Anyone who looks seriously at the problem should realise solving it will require not lifestyle modification but political and social change," Huber says.
