Summary
"Few issues today excite more passion or alarm than the specter of climate change. In A Climate of Crisis, historian Patrick Allitt shows that our present climate of crisis is far from exceptional. Indeed, the environmental debates of the last half century are defined by exaggeration and fearmongering from all sides, often at the expense of the facts."-- From dust jacket flap

Summary
A provocative history of the environmental movement in America demonstrates how its rise to political and social prominence has triggered an alarmist culture of misinformation, urging readers to find answers to current concerns by drawing on historical examples
