Cutting through the writings of the environmental movement's most prominent writers and thinkers, including Rachel Carson, Barry Commoner, Paul Elrich and E.F. Schumacher, Charles T. Rubin refutes their pretentions to scientific accuracy and reveals the radical foundations of their projects. He warns that these utopian reformers would willingly adopt totalitarian means to save us (as they see it) from ourselves.
Serious discussion of environmentalism is now impossible without reference to The Green Crusade. Rubin's groundbreaking book signals a new stage in the environmental debate. This is no anti-green polemic. Neither side of the debate is spared. But Rubin does pose the most serious intellectual challenge to environmentalists by demonstrating that they would do well to drop their tiresome warnings of impending disaster and instead reexamine their own principles. This book is the place for them to start.--Jefferey Salmon, Executive Director, George C. Marshall Institute
