Fighting Pollution and Climate Change
A new book by Richard W. Emory, Jr.
This book is an adventure story by our nation’s former top enforcement lawyer directly responsible for all EPA federal investigations into pollution crime. In the second part of his career also within the Environmental Protection Agency, he worked globally in U.S. foreign assistance to teach U.S. clean-water and air-pollution-control techniques to a waiting world.
To such an exciting life’s work, the author seeks to recruit the incoming next generation of pollution fighters. In this “how to” guide to apply the science-based laws and treaties for environmental protection, he shows the way forward from here. Not as an outside reporter or commentator, but as a government “insider” and “doer,” the author has confronted and knows too well what our nation and our planet are facing. He invites all good citizens to join in saving our life on Earth.
