Show synopsis Rolling Stone magazine has long been respected for its in-depth coverage of serious issues and enjoyed for its irreverent and candid assessments of pop culture, trends and national and international affairs. Now, for the first time, the best of Rolling Stone's environmental essays are gathered together in a single volume, The Rolling Stone Environmental Reader. Written by leading journalists and environmentalists, topics discussed include media coverage of environmental issues, the U.S. government's contributions to the environmental crisis and the implications of the wholesale destruction of the rain forests. But lest the essays appear to be too one-sided, the volume also includes P.J. O'Rourke's essay "The Greenhouse Affect, " which details, in typical O'Rourke fashion, his thoughts on Earth Day 1990 and the environmental movement in general. This volume clearly demonstrates why Rolling Stone has been and continues to be one of America's most thought-provoking and influential magazines, and provides valuable insight into the past and future of the environmental crisis.
