Verified Purchase. This book is great. Zinn starts his foray with Native Americans watching white explorers pull up to their shores we all know how that turned out for them and moves on to untold details of America's decision to bomb Japan in WWII. Wargo similarly starts his narrative with the US military forcing natives off their land in the remote pacific in order to test their nuclear arsenal.
From there it is just unsugarcoated anecdote after another ranging from misinformed neglect up through preventable atrocities involving human contamination.
Environmental Law: Government and Public Policy Towards the Environment
At the tail end it shifts into plans to map out a better future for environmental health. If you don't think our unsafe environmental direction and chemical risk is so much an issue of tragedy of the commons but rather a tragedy of common ignorance and common denial then this is recommended text for you and your peers, a fast read that can easily be slipped into the holes that now lay occupied by the heads of ostriches.

As Wargo points out, the problem areas we need address when considering chemical pollution often start with misinformation, and barriers to the public knowing the truth about some chemicals.
If misinformation is a key issue, Wargo rightly advises us on how we may learn from society's chemical mishaps and how, through awareness we can reduce or avoid our personal exposure to chemicals. Those wanting to make sense of society's growing reliance on chemicals, and the government's failure to manage it, will welcome Green Intelligence. It is a hefty read, as can be expected with an insightful book discussing the chemical invasion, but Wargo provides solutions - albeit predictable ones. Wargo's proposed strategy for winning the chemical war is sensible: we need to create an environmentally intelligent society, one that is conscious of the ways in which humanity is transforming the chemistry of the environment and our bodies.
