Extreme environment; how environmental exaggeration harms emerging economies.


Extreme environment; how environmental exaggeration harms emerging economies.

Vegter, Ivo.

Zebra Press


321 pages



Journalist Vegter claims that environmental dangers are exaggerated and argues that less-developed countries should not be subjected to environmental policies that only rich nations can afford. He downplays the nuclear disaster in Japan, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, and evidence of climate change, and points to deception and exaggeration by officials, consultants, contractors, and activists. Several chapters are devoted to fracking. The book includes color maps, explanatory diagrams, and photos. It is distributed in the US by International Publishers Marketing.
