An interesting peek inside the early days of Greenpeace and the evolution of a dropout. We often think that the only path out of a dogmatic mindset is greed, to sell out to the opponents of the dogma for money. But that almost never happens. The most common path out is to insist on consistency resist hypocrisy. To insist on scientific accuracy. To insist on *real* concrete change vs. hype and hoopla. That's the story here, and it is told well. ( )

A sometimes entertaining and level-headed assessment of environmentalism from someone who is both scientifically literate and has been intimately involved with environmental activism since its beginning. Don't let the fact that many modern environmentalists see Moore as an apostate dissuade you from reading his book. ( )
