Polluting for Pleasure

Synopsis

In the tradition of "Silent Spring" and "Unsafe At Any Speed" comes this frightening environmental study. The message: seemingly innocuous recreational boats, particularly outboards, are polluting just as much as all the cars and lorries, and the marine industry has been holding its breath, hoping that nobody will notice. "Polluting for Pleasure" begins with the author accidentally discovering that pleasure boats have been spilling oil into the environment - as much, every year, as 40 Exxon Valdez disasters. The book explores how that oil is being leaked, what it is doing to the environment and how to stop the flow.
