Overview


In Protecting New Jersey's Environment, critical environmental concerns translate into real human interest stories about people and their surroundings in the state -- a critical site for the growth of environmentalism. The book explores the science underpinning environmental issues and the public policy infighting that goes undocumented behind the scenes and beneath the controversies. It demonstrates the ways that scientists, regulators, lobbyists, and politicians interact and offers the public a go-to guide on how to seek environmental protection in practical ways.

Editorial Reviews

Choice

"With geographic regions as his literary and environmental boundaries, Belton takes readers around his beloved Garden State. He highlights the environmental hazards with which New Jersey is currently struggling, as well as the common citizens who have taken to the courts and the airwaves to champion true environmental protection within their treasured neighborhoods, waterways, and forests. Recommended."

President of Conservation Resources, Inc. - Michael Catania

"Tom Belton is every bit as colorful as the characters he profiles. A fascinating, fresh approach to New Jersey's complex environmental issues."
