"Disasters like Love Canal and more recently in Flint, Michigan, happened slowly over years, and caused lasting damage. A powerful way to demonstrate cause and effect in ecosystems, this book chronicles each disaster's story, and even the resulting legal battles. This book is lamentably timely, and all readers will easily be drawn in by these morality stories of corporations' terrible impact in the effort to save money. Statistics on each spread communicate the impact of the disasters, another way to drive home to readers the damage they cause. The final pages aim to engage readers in environmental conversation and good citizenship through specific ways that affect our water."
