Sipho Kings Reviews Extreme Environment by Ivo Vegter

Extreme Environment: How environmental exaggeration harms emerging economiesVerdict: carrot

Ivo Vegter’s Extreme Environment sells a deliciously simple idea wrapped in great prose and backed by ­volumes of fact. He is campaigning to warn people that extreme pronouncements by environmental activists and unwitting journalists are misconstruing the facts about the environment. This, in turn, has a hugely negative effect on the thing called “progress”. And the result is that the poorest and most vulnerable are bearing the costs.
