Do you believe that the pesticide DDT is responsible for the near destruction of many species of birds? Do you think that our air and water are dirtier now than ever before? Are you worried about global warming? Do you believe that nature is so frail as to be on the verge of collapse due to human interventions? This book challenges current environmental doctrine and beliefs that have broad consensus in the American psyche. The challenges are based in the research of scientists worldwide and published within hundreds of books and thousands of articles which have not received the attention they deserve from American media. For example, research has shown that DDT was not responsible for egg-shell thinning, nor was it the poison environmental activists purported it to be. Our air and water are cleaner today than it has been in the last half-century, did you know? The actual rise in temperature over the last century has been less than one degree Fahrenheit, so is global warming really an issue that we should spend billions on? Research also showed that the beaches in Prince William Sound that were not cleaned after the Exxon Valdez disaster were in better shape 7 years later than those that were cleaned. Thirty two chapters on issues from chemicals to radiation risk, as well as a section on the culture of the environment might just change your mind on several issues. It will give you what you have been lacking for decades...the other side of the story.Lynch, David, Jr. is the author of 'Challenging Environmental Mythology Wrestling Zeus', published 2004 under ISBN 9781891121210 and ISBN 1891121219.
