Media reviews
Pandora's Poison is a landmark book which should be read by anyone wanting to understand the environmental and health dangers of the chlorine industry. As a reference work alone it is a masterpiece, analyzing around 1,000 references.... Thornton develops his case comprehensively, evaluating the landscape from the historical, through the environmental and scientific, to the industrial, political, regulatory, and ethical forces that are now central to the chlorine struggle.... In Pandora's Poison Thornton is magnificent. - Terry Collins, Nature"
