ENVIRONMENTAL STORIES HAVE ALL THE ELEMENTS OF A GOOD DRAMA—VILLAINS THAT PLUNGE THE WORLD INTO DANGER AND HEROES THAT FIGHT FOR POSITIVE CHANGE. INDUSTRIAL DISASTERS AND ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY: STORIES OF VILLAINS, HEROES, AND THE REST OF US ILLUMINATES THE INTERPLAY BETWEEN ENVIRONMENTAL POLICIES AND THE PEOPLE AND GROUPS WHO INFLUENCE THEIR DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION. THROUGH THE STORIES OF FOUR MAJOR INDUSTRIAL DISASTERS—THE UNION CARBIDE PLANT EXPLOSION, THE BP OIL SPILL, THE UPPER BIG BRANCHMINE EXPLOSION, AND THE ASBESTOS POISONING IN LIBBY, MONTANA—THIS BOOK EXAMINES THE ORGANIZATIONAL BREAKDOWNS AND REGULATORY LAPSES THAT CAUSED THESE DISASTERS, AND HOW ATTITUDES AND POLICIES CHANGED AS A RESULT. IT ALSO EXPLORES THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF ENVIRONMENTAL HEROES LIKE GAYLORD NELSON AND JUDY BONDS AND HOW THEIR ACTIVISM HAS SHAPED US ENVIRONMENTAL POLITICS AND POLICIES. INDUSTRIAL DISASTERS AND ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY CONCLUDES WITH A DISCUSSION OF HOW THE "REST OF US" CAN PARTICIPATE IN EVERYDAY ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIONS, HOLD CORPORATIONS AND THE GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABLE, AND LOBBY FOR GREATER ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTIONS. WITH ITS COMPELLING STORIES AND CALLS TO ACTION, THIS BOOK HELPS STUDENTS UNDERSTAND HOW US ENVIRONMENTAL POLICIES HAVE DEVELOPED AND TRANSFORMED—AND HOW THEY CAN CONTINUE TO DO SO.
