McKay Jenkins, Poison Spring: The Secret History of Pollution and the EPA

Half a century after Rachel Carson's Silent Spring comes an insider account of the agency created to protect Americans and our environment. Co-authored by McKay Jenkins and E.G. Vallianatos, who spent 25 years at the EPA, Poison Spring shows how pressure from politicians and threats from huge corporations have turned the public's watchdog into a "polluter's protection agency."

McKay Jenkins is professor of English, journalism and environmental humanities at the University of Delaware and the author of several books including What's Gotten Into Us.

Presented in partnership with Baltimore GreenWorks as part of the Sustainable Speakers Series.
