Pollution kills hundreds of thousands of people annually. This book shows why this environmental epidemic continues. Campaign contributors, lobbyists, and special interests often control information by capturing media and even science itself. Yet this book puts the blame — and the solution — on the shoulders of ordinary citizens. Calling for a new “democratic revolution” and arguing that justice requires us each to become the change we seek, this book offers many concrete proposals for reform — many based on American Public Health Association recommendations.
