Influence in Europe

In addition to his work in his native United States, Rifkin has significant influence in Europe, serving as an advisor to government leaders and heads of state and served as a personal advisor to Romano Prodi, the former President of the European Commission, one of the governing bodies of the European Union. His columns appear in many leading European newspapers. Even though many of his views are contested, he has genuine influence on public opinion and public policy in the U.S. and Europe. National Journal magazine listed him as one of the 150 most influencial people in shaping U.S. policy for his "skillfully manipulated legal and bureaucratic procedures."

Criticisms

Jeremy Rifkin has sparked strong controversies about his positions. Critics in the United States have called him a professional scaremonger and criticize him for supporting the Precautionary Principle as they view it as an obstacle for technological advancement. Some even say his books are littered with errors and false predictions. Time Magazine went so far as to call him "the most hated man in science".
