From Library Journal:

Unlike Will Steger and Jon Bowermaster's Saving the Earth ( LJ 4/15/90) or The Global Tomorrow Coalition's Global Ecology Handbook ( LJ 4/15/90), Naar's book does not primarily try to convey the global magnitude of pollution. Instead, the book focuses on local solutions to pollution. Many examples of functioning antipollution projects and ways to avoid causing pollution and to protect one's health are cited. Some ideas, such as foods that can protect people from the damages of radioactive fallout, are admittedly controversial. The summary of existing laws and instructions for lobbying and litigating are the most valuable and distinctive features of this book. Unfortunately, with the amount of literature cited, this book often reads like a research paper. For larger environmental collections.
