About this book

It is frequently claimed that Britain's environmental policy is second to none. In fact, Britain's record on the environment is one of the worst in the industrialized world. The food we eat contains additives and hormones, many of which have been banned in other countries; farmers are permitted to spray chemicals outlawed in the USA; the controls of radioactive discharges from Britain's reprocessing plant are the least stringent in Europe; and Britain has consistently refused to control the ravages of acid rain. Labour and Conservative administrations alike have show equal disregard for the most pressing environmental problems. In this book, environmental journalists, academics and activists critically assess the environmental record of successive British governments. They consider vital issues such as lead pollution, acid rain, hazardous waste, pesticides, nuclear pollution, nuclear dumping, cancer policy, asbestos, nutritional policy, drugs, river pollution, farming policy and wildlife. The result is an invaluable handbook which will be essential reading for anyone concerned with the environment in which we live.

Media reviews
Every now and then there appears a book which through the use of basic, direct and polemic prose creates a wide-ranging and attention-grabbing confrontation with standard attitudes and traditional wisdoms. 'Green Britain or Industrial Wasteland?' is one such book. Rarely before has such a stunning compendium of evidence relating to environmental degradation been assembled...
