In the late 1970s, in a neighborhood just downstream from Niagara Falls, an environmental disaster slowly came to light. In so many ways, it turned out to be a true life horror story. And, as it turns out, the story of the Love Canal also has a lot to teach us about the environmental crises we face today. In his new book, Paradise Falls, author Keith O'Brien chronicles the activists and scientists who raised the alarm to the highest levels of corporate and political power. This is a must read (and a must listen) for environmental scientists and activists everywhere.
