Summary
Explores the idea that "the general polarization of American politics has mirrored that of environmental politics, as pro-environmentalists and their critics attribute to one another the worst possible motives. Environmentalists see their critics as greedy special interest groups that show no conscience as they plunder the earth, while skeptics see their adversaries as enemies of economic growth whose plans stifle initiative under an avalanche of bureaucratic regulation"--Amazon.com
Summary
A provocative history of the environmental movement in America demonstrates how its rise to political and social prominence has triggered an alarmist culture of misinformation, urging readers to find answers to current concerns by drawing on historical examples
