From the struggle over the lobo wolf in New Mexico to the fight to save the Grizzly (in Idaho), from the shooting of wild Bison in Montana to how the Sierra Club provided the cover for a federal program that shoveled federal lands into the hands of private investors, St. Clair gives a well-rounded account of where the environment stands -today—and what to do about it. Been Brown So Long It Looked Like Green to Me by Jeffrey St. Clair is a merciless account of how politicians of both parties have waged war upon the environment, from Alaska to Yellowstone, from the redwoods to the coal mines of West Virginia. “St. Clair is the Seymour Hersh of environmental journalism.” Josh Frank.
