About this book

What we are witnessing now, assert Sierra Club executive director Carl Pope and coauthor Paul Rauber, is something larger even than the gutting of the Clean Air Act, abandonment of endangered species, selling out public lands to loggers and oilmen, and allowing polluting industries to write the regulations. Brilliantly argued and full of damning evidence from the Bush administration's environmental record, Strategic Ignorance sets forth what the American public can and must do to bring a halt to Bush's radical experiment.


Preface; 1.Red in Tooth and Claw; 2.A Work in Progress; 3.Opening Moves; 4.Let the Breather Beware; 5.Clear Skies and Healthy Forests.

Media reviews
The Bush Administration's assault on the environment has been breathtaking in its swiftness, scope, and severity. It is the most concerted effort in our history to roll back the nation's environmental laws and regulations. In Strategic Ignorance, Carl Pope and Paul Rauber clearly dissect the Administration's agenda and methods. More than a wake-up call, this book is a call to arms for defenders of America's priceless natural heritage. - Senator Barbara Boxer "Not since the Gilded Age, when the robber barons bought and sold U.S. corporations and owned the presidency, have the money powers so controlled our government. Carl Pope and Paul Rauber prove that this administration, led by the worst environmental president in history, is devouring not only our rivers, streams, and public lands, but also our democracy. I wish the book were required reading for every politician and citizen...." - Robert F. Kennedy Jr."
