Editorial Reviews

Review

A superbly written account of the devastating political agenda of the environmentalist junta...The book’s bombshell revelations alone will make it one of the year’s most talked-about releases…[This] book should also get people talking, reflecting and reconsidering previously held positions about North America’s environmental movement. (Washington Times)

From the Back Cover

An investigative reporter documents the destructive impact of the environmental movement in North America and beyond.

When journalist Elizabeth Nickson sought to subdivide her twenty-eight acres on Salt Spring Island in the Pacific Northwest, she was confronted by the full force and power of the radical conservationists who had taken over the local zoning council. She soon discovered that she was not free to do what she wanted with her land, and that in the view of these arrogant stewards it wasn’t really hers at all. Nickson’s long, frustrating, and eyeopening encounter with these zealots started her on a journey to investigate and expose the hugely destructive impact of the environmental movement on ordinary people and communities across North America—and the world.

What she discovered is shocking. Forty million Americans have been driven from their land, and rural culture is being systematically crushed, even as wildlife, forests, and rangelands are dying. In Eco-Fascists, Nickson explores how environmental radicals have taken over government agencies at the local, state, and federal levels. The result? A wholesale sequestration of forest, range, and water—more than 40 percent of North America—impoverishing us all, especially the most vulnerable. This confiscation of America’s natural heritage is a major factor contributing to our current economic decline; until it is acknowledged and addressed, our economy will not recover.

Nickson traces the tens of billions of dollars environmental nonprofits marshal every year to promote the notion that our essential natural systems are collapsing, and finds, in a brutal example of self-fulfilling prophesy, that their corrupted science is desertifying the heartland. She visits once-thriving communities that are turning to ghost towns because environmental legislation has forced mines, ranches, and mills to close and has forbidden critical forest, range, park, and wilderness maintenance.

Eco-Fascists exposes the major fallacies of the environmental movement—from wildlife protection to zoning to forest-fire management—and introduces us to the individuals who are fighting back. Fast-paced, highly accessible, and sure to be controversial, this is a work that will change the national conversation about environmental protection and its impact.

Well written and an easy read.

Still, a great read for those concerned about crazy wacko environmentalists and the real damage that they're doing.

The author really knows what she is writing about.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C. S. Lewis

C. S. Lewis nicely summarizes the content of Elizabeth Nickson's book. Starting with her own troubles on Saltspring Island (which, bizarrely, she gives the impression is in the US when it is actually in Canada), where she owns some property; Nickson expands her thesis to much of the western US. Her thesis is that ENGOs (Environmental Non-Government Organizations) and other environmental groups are ruining and depopulating rural America 'with the approval of their own conscience[s]' through bureaucratic fiat with the support of naive but rich big city donors cocooned in their municipalities. Her evidence is persuasive and alarming. As a resident of rural British Columbia (I have been to Saltspring Island - it's beautiful), I know that local, mostly Vancouver and Victoria based, greens have steadily been attacking the rural parts of our province by the very means elucidated by Nickson. Already, their foibles have largely been responsible for the disastrous pine beetle epidemic that has devastated the forestry industry in northern and central BC.

Environmentalists have changed since the 1960's. Now the movement is a well oiled machine, using tax dollars, private trust funds and corporate grants. What benefit to humanity is there for all this spending?

It would appear, from the interviews and research that is set out in this book, that what America has purchased is declining rural communities, destruction of the natural world and many species more in danger of harm than before the `green' activists got involved.

For Canadians the connection between the Pew Charitable Trusts fortune, which sprang from Suncor Oil, the presence of Sun Oil family members and heirs on the board of directors of Pew and the anti-oil sands programs being financed by Pew in Canada might cause reasonable people to wonder if the criticism of the oil sands is based on economics or environment.

Well written, well researched, and downright scary. Just in time for Halloween.

This book is written in an alternate format that I personally enjoyed. The author interweaves two lines of discussion throughout the book. The first, the regulatory changes and the agenda behind them nationwide and their impact. The second, her personal experience navigating the regulatory juggernaut of her home community, the island of Salt Springs. I found the format was both entertaining and compelling and made the book much more readable. Instead of a book filled with dry statistics and regulations, it was made more personal and relatable.
With respect to the content of the book, the author's warnings and predictions should give all liberty-minded individuals pause. The threat posed by good-intentioned (but naive and foolish environmental activists) today is dire and is having extreme unintended consequences that are affecting individual liberty, our culture, our economy, and our overall way of life.

Very good book on Eco-Truth with personal experience of author connected to regulations control.
The book will make you angry enough to throw it away after first 90 pages or so but perserve if you want the whole truth to what green and wild movements are doing to the property rights in the USA.

The coal industry fights this battle every day and brown outs can not be in the too distant future.

I thank the author for her perseverance on her property and trying to awaken many others.

This is like fast food or candy. You get a short quick view on each and every topic it covers, and I do mean short. This is not some deep scholarly tome and the author admits this up front. If you have 5 minutes and want to read a very brief introduction to a few eco topics, this might be for you. At least it makes the reader aware of where the Eco-Fascists are coming from historically.

Format: Hardcover
This book is a MUST read. There is a war being waged on 'country people' by 'the movement' (the author's terms) and it is being waged by unelected, well-funded, aggressive 'eco-fascists' and big business alike, for decades. The author confesses up front the 'harsh' tone of the title, but then takes us on a journey of explanation and easy justification that is simply riveting, if not terrifying. There are deeply shocking revelations in here, all backed up with a hefty bibliography. I couldn't put the book down and am grateful to know that the many staunch characters Nickson introduces in its pages, including herself and some of her fellow islanders, are out there acting not only in their own self-interest, but in the clear best interest of a free society as well. Sure, read it and weep; but also give it to your friends because no matter their brand of politics, for any in a free society, and for all who wish to keep it that way, there is an urgent need to regard those who would rule us with eyes this wide open.
