Summary
Since its establishment by Richard Nixon in 1970, the Environmental Protection Agency has strived to establish and enforce regulations intended to protect the environment and the environmental well-being of citizens in the United States. Today, it faces great struggles and an uncertain future despite the good it has worked during its existence. Through engaging photographs, strong statistics, detailed research, and vibrant and informative sidebars, this book brings the story of the EPA into fascinating focus. It discusses and dissects the grave political challenges it encounters today, compares and contrasts it to similar agencies in other countries, highlights key men and women working to preserve it, and examines its future in society, and what life could be like without it
