The Devil Is In The Generalities Summary

655 Words3 Pages

The title of the article is The Environmental Crisis: The Devil is in the Generalities, written by Ross McKitrick. It appears in the April 2008 edition of the Academic Matters journal. The author is an associate professor and director of graduate studies at the Department of Economics at the University of Guelph. In discussing the environment, the author argues that the topic is rather wide to use vague terms to define or understand it. The issue is further complicated by politicians who use it as a campaign scapegoat, in which they paint it as a crisis. The author fails to make compelling arguments on the environment since he does not use sufficient academic references for his information; and misunderstands the generalization issue. McKitrick
