NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--We are pleased to announce the publication of, “The Brown Agenda: My Mission To Clean Up The World’s Most Life-Threatening Pollution”, by Pure Earth founder, Richard Fuller. Amazon just listed the book as a “Hot New Releases”.
“Fuller’s memoir isn’t some kind of moralizing lecture; it’s more like a romp. Who knew cleaning up toxic waste could be the stuff of Indiana Jones-style adventure?” — Bradford Wieners, Executive Editor, Bloomberg Businessweek.
It is now known that pollution is the single largest cause of death in the developing world. After traveling to many severely polluted “brown sites,” and witnessing the suffering of poor families trapped in these toxic hot spots, environmentalist and engineer Richard Fuller founded the Blacksmith Institute (now renamed Pure Earth) to take action.
Covered in Salon.com this weekend, “The Brown Agenda” details Fuller’s inspirational journey—from his dangerous yet ultimately successful fight to save hundreds of thousands of acres in the Amazon rain forest, to establishing Great Forest Inc., one of the leading sustainability consultancies in the United States, to his creation of Pure Earth.
In this vivid account of his perilous travels to the earth’s most toxic locations, Fuller introduces readers to the plight of the “poisoned poor,” and suggests specific ways people everywhere can help combat pollution all over the world.
To date, Fuller and Pure Earth have remediated more than seventy-five toxic sites worldwide, changing the lives of over four million people, including a million children.
Publishers Weekly listed “The Brown Agenda” in the best upcoming 2015 green titles.
