Berlau Analyzes the True Cost of Environmental Extremism with Devastating Effectiveness
One of the most useful things I learned in my college economics class is the notion of the "opportunity cost". An opportunity cost is the cost of not doing what you could be doing. The cost of my sitting here writing this review is that I'm not cavorting around on a beach in Sao Paulo with two scantily-clad, coconut-oiled beauties. Berlau exposes the cost of not using DDT and asbestos, as well as how environmentalists, not global warming, bear the major responsibility for the wildfires in California and the drowning of New Orleans after Katrina. If you want to read a book which challenges the conventional wisdom and breaks through the wall of green propaganda like a karate chop, read Berlau's book. It will make you jump out of your chair and say, "YES!!!"

When I purchased this book, I knew next to nothing about the activities of environmentalists and the impact they have had on the day-to-day lives of many people. I had always assumed that they stood for improving the health and prosperity of the environment including humanity. This book has opened my eyes to two major facts I never knew about environmentalists. One, they often do promote the environment but at the cost of human health. And two, they sometimes do not even care about the environment. This may sound bizarre, but I feel this book has enough evidence to prove these statements.Was this review helpful?
