Show synopsis Not long ago it seems the whole country was working to clean up our air, land and water. Environmental bills were made into law, recycling swept the nation, politicians campaigned and won on environmental issues and school children were learning earth-saving songs and plays. What happened? Where did the environmental movement go? In Goodbye Green, Glen Duncan boldly declares the environmental movement dead, outlines exactely what happened and explains why throngs of middle Americans dropped out. He exercises his award-winning reporting skills once again to reveal how trade unions, civil rights groups, international environmental groups and even the federal government barged into a hugely successful grassroots movement and how their extermism then chased middle Americans away. Glen takes you along on a confrontational Greenpeace "action," gives you a peek into the "anti-earthday" held by extreme environmentalists fed-up with moderates within the movement and then leads you through the lawyers' boondoggle called Superfund. Hang on for a good, fast read that'll make you wary of giving any more of your money or your time to save the earth.
