Synopsis

Oil, natural gas, water and pollution are main topics covered in James Ridgeway's book, "The Politics of Ecology." According to Ridgeway, conservationists are not interested in saving the land but rather they are interested in profits. What's best for the environment is not necessarily the biggest concern, explained Ridgeway.
