Harvey Wasserman, now age 75, started life as an elementary school teacher and made it up the career ladder all the way to “adjunct instructor” at a community college in Ohio, where he also sold uniforms on the side. Despite this modest degree of professional success, Mr. Wasserman has not let that dim his enthusiastic self-promotion. He launched “Solartopia” as a revenue-generating activity and hopes to get consulting and speaking gigs. His website “Bios” page in fact hosts three bios for himself. These three distinct bios are not enough, however, so he supplements with an “Etc.” section, all in exceeding 200 lines. Mr. Wasserman personifies the worst of today’s self-proclaimed environmental spokesperson who find the prospect facts conflict with their world view too threatening to their self image. Wasserman apparently received such positive feedback in 1962, as a junior in high school, when he participated in a protest at a segregated roller rink in Columbus, that it set his life’s course. There, he gleefully chanted “Don’t Skate, Integrate!” and got town-wide press. This so enchanted him, he has endeavored to replicate that success with virtually any issue whatsoever. Now, sixty years later, Wasserman’s primary claim to fame is his assertion (unconfirmed) that he coined the term “No Nukes.” Otherwise, most of what fills his bios consists of “I was there with so and so,” and then talking about it with any media outlets as he could possibly find, and then writing about having talked about having protested with so and so. Even the tweet that Wasserman has pinned to his Twitter feed attempts to cozy up to David Crosby and make completely non-sensical claims about nuclear power. Despite the fact that Wasserman’s long history as protestor, speaker and school instructor might have embued him with some semblance of responsibility to know the facts, Wasserman smugly clings to his 1960s vision of a “solartopia” in which we’ve banned waste and war, banned fossil fuels and nuclear, transformed the corporation, restored the matriarchy, raised organic food, achieved “total efficiency,” revived mass transit and achieve social justice and true democracy, having converted to renewables. No update there for carbon emissions. In other words, like many of the aging environmental leaders who launched their protest careers in the 1960s and 1970s, Wasserman’s world view has calcified to the point that he has utterly failed to recognize that climate change is universally acknowledged by scientists as our #1 threat and that nuclear power is required to address it.
