Been Brown so Long, It Looked Like Green to Me: The Politics of Nature
Been Brown so Long, It Looked Like Green to Me: The Politics of Nature, by Jeffrey St. Clair
Award-winning investigative journalist Jeffrey St. Clair presents a shocking look at the war on the home front: the battle against the earth. From the ancient forests of Oregon to the toxic wasteland of Cancer Alley, St. Clair exposes the convergence of forces that are behind the exploitation of the environment: corrupt politicians, greed-obsessed corporadoes, apathetic bureaucrats and complicit corporate media, owned and funded by the very same businesses that are driving the ruination of the natural world. Unsparing, yes. But not hopeless. From Apaches in Arizona fighting the Vatican's telescope on their sacred mountain to tree-sitters in the California redwoods, St. Clair chronicles the vibrant movement confronting the forces of despoliation at every turn, united in their demand for environmental justice.
