Description
Biotechnology--the future or a genetic time bomb? Renewable fuels--the key to cleaner air or just corporate welfare? Greenhouse gasses--baking the earth to death or just a needless worry? Plant patents--improving gardens and farms or just profiteering? When you stop to think about it, the government has its hand in every important environmental issue. And with the left and the right raucously disagreeing about whether the government's policies are for good or for evil, it's impossible for a concerned citizen to know what to think. How the Government Got in Your Backyard distills the science, the politics, and the unbiased, nonpartisan truth behind hot-button environmental issues from pesticides to global warming. By clearly representing what the left says, what the right says, what the science is, and what the facts are, Gillman and Heberlig don't set out to provide the answer--they light the path so concerned citizens can uncover their own true and informed opinion. In this season of political discontent, the unbiased truth about environmental policies--free of political agendas--is as refreshing as it is fascinating. How the Government Got in Your Backyard is not for Republicans or Democrats, liberals or conservatives. It's for anyone who is ready to get to the bottom line.
