The Degradation of New Zealand’s Freshwaters


Mike Joy“In this book I show how in the last few decades environmental protection was deregulated, allowing a few to profit by polluting on a massive scale, and how that has led to the destruction we see today. I also show how this reality is denied and covered-up so that relatively few are aware of the full extent of the damage.”
