Crimes against nature : standing up to Bush and the Kyoto killers who are cashing in on our world by Robert Francis Kennedy ( Book )
8 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Crimes Against Nature is ultimately about the corrosive effect of corporate corruption on our core American values - free-market capitalism and democracy. It is about an administration, the author argues, that has sacrificed respect for the law, public health, scientific integrity, and long-term economic vitality on the altar of corporate greed. It is a book for both Democrats and Republicans, people like the traditionally conservative farmers and fishermen Kennedy represents in lawsuits against polluters."--BOOK JACKET
