Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-In a straightforward, factual, yet readable style, Aaseng carefully examines the jobs v. environment issue. He begins with a history that brings readers from 1691 to the present. Then, he considers both sides of the controversy in a balanced manner supported by relevant documentation. He concludes that proponents of the ``antigreen movement'' miss the entire picture, disproving claims that environmentalists negatively impact the economy and demonstrating the contrary. He does acknowledge, however, that changes required to maintain a healthy environment can cause pain to some people and can be expensive. Proposed solutions that best protect the Earth now and in the future with the least disruption to workers' lives are discussed. This book is filled with impressive examples of how thoughtful planning and cooperation can bring employment and preservation together. Fair-to good-quality black-and-white photographs are well placed and have pertinent captions. The information is current and well documented; the helpful reading list contains recent titles. A fine complement to Thomas G. Aylesworth's Government and the Environment (Enslow, 1993) and an excellent choice for reports, debates, or simply general information.-Diane P. Tuccillo, Mesa Public Library, AZ

    This book talks about how jobs that we do everyday effect the environment. Jobs such as logging, mining, farming, and other large industries. We as a society cannot live without jobs such as these. We need food and supplies in order to live. But at what point does the short term benefit become worse than the long effects. When the Mill City Logging company got shut down by environmentalists in the 1980's, over 1,600 people lost their jobs. I like forests as much as the next guy but logging is an important part of our economy and our way of life.
    This book shows both sides of the argument very well. It shows the effects that environmentalists cause on the economy and the job losses that they cause as well as the effects that the jobs have on the environment. It also talks about how chemicals such as DDT effect the environment. Even though it is a very effective pesticide it also causes many problems to the atmosphere.
    Another topic that it talks about is the movement to expand the national forests and protected wetlands. This movement started many years ago starting in 1681 when the government passed a law that for every 5 acres that a farmer cut down they had to leave 1 acre in its natural state. In 1881 Yellowstone national park was formed. The forming of the national park has made the area a beautiful and sacred place for people that live near it. If we did not have any protected forests we would not have any large forests that we could tour and admire. I would recommend this book for people that care about the environment but would not recommend this book for the average person. This book has a lot of dry and boring parts and would not be a good read for the most people.
