Bob Deans says there’s been a political assault on the country’s environment, most dramatically seen in the last couple of years. Deans writes about his concerns in a new book called "Reckless: The Political Assault on the American Environment."
Deans talks about the book and his upcoming visit to Vermont later this week. He says the Green Mountain State may have a reputation for environmental protection, but it too is feeling the effects of environmental threats like global warming, which he says is dismissed by too many of today’s political leaders.
Deans will be speaking at the University of Vermont’s Memorial Lounge in the Waterman Building, at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, September 21. He’ll also be at the Northshire Bookstore, in Manchester Center, on Sunday, September 22, at 5:00 p.m.
