Ed Lemke Reviews Extreme Environment by Ivo Vegter

Extreme Environment: How environmental exaggeration harms emerging economiesVerdict: carrot

This is undoubtedly the most thought provoking book I have read for a while. Vegter is a South African journalist and columnist who writes for various publications such as The Daily Maverick.

His book is an eye-opener and sheds light on how we have been drawn in by media reports, extreme environ-mental issues and standpoints which we take for granted as gospel truths. We all take our health and environmental conditions very seriously and we have our pet causes we believe in, but have any of the issues we fight for been tested and properly researched as accurate? It is far too easy to climb on the environmental band wagon, or invest in a new miracle diet.
