green revolution —
perceptions, politics, and
by Klaus L.E. Kaiser, is the first clearly written, comprehensive
book looking at the green desires and expectations and juxtaposing
these with the physical and chemical facts and realities.
CONVENIENT MYTHS explains in common terms why many of these
green ideas will remain myths and dreams. The laws of nature cannot
be broken. No matter how much we may desire the opposite.
