Corporate America increasingly relies on environmentally unsustainable forms of production, and not all Americans bear their costs equally. People of colour are 47 per cent more likely than whites to live near a hazardous waste facility. Fifty seven per cent of whites live in areas with poor air quality, compared to 80 per cent of Hispanics. Nationwide, nearly a thousand farm workers die of pesticide poisoning each year. Illuminating manifold connections between the exploitation of nature and the exploitation of vulnerable communities, a new wave of grass-roots environmentalism is building in the United States. Groups that have traditionally been at the periphery of mainstream environmentalism - poor people, working people, and people of colour - are fusing the fight for a healthy environment with historical struggles for civil rights and social justice. This text should be of interest to anyone who holds out the hope for lasting solutions to America's social and ecological crises.
