Abstract:

Iain Murray, a sprightly conservative environmental analyst with a long record of skewering liberal hypocrisy, has dug up seven of the all-time great environmental catastrophes caused by the Left and exposed them in The Really Inconvenient Truths. Murray lays bare: how ethanol, the liberals' favorite fuel, is destroying the world's rainforests--and could cause global food shortages; how Al Gore's hero Rachel Carson cost the lives of millions of Africans through her efforts to ban DDT; how the environmentalists have covered up the polluting effects of contraceptive and chemical abortion drugs; how the Endangered Species Act actually endangers species; and, finally, how Gore's vision of greater state control over the economy has already produced some of the greatest environmental disasters in history.--From publisher description.
