Overstating the short and long term harm from the destruction of wetlands is hard – perhaps impossible. Equally hard – but certainly impossible – is topping the masterful work of Craig Pittman and co-author Matthew Waite who let the facts tell the tragic and maddening story of Florida’s wetlands. Paving Paradise is a thoroughly researched yet completely accessible account for all readers of what wetlands are, why they matter, and how they are regulated. It brings to life national, state, and local wetlands policies and the people and agencies that have implemented, skirted, or tried to change those policies, for better and worse. Paving Paradise is soul-stirring stuff – hard to achieve in a book about wetlands, but Pittman and Waite pulled it off and performed a tremendous public service in the process.Was this review helpful?
