Environmental regulations aren't always about environmental protection. Today, more than ever, regulations seem to have been designed by activists, rather than scientists. Encounter Books' forthcoming Regulators Gone Wild: How the EPA is Ruining American Industry, by Rich Trzupek, is the shocking inside story of how the green movement and big government have united to stifle American productivity and hamstring American innovation -- not by design, but as the inevitable consequence of pursuing a utopian vision of environmental purity.

As a respected scientist and consultant, Trzupek has seen the Evironmental Protection Agency (EPA) lose its focus on cleaning up the environment, turning instead to mindless bureaucracies and sweeping policies with negligible environmental impact. Meanwhile, the green industry continues to exploit bad science to sell the public on their aggressive agenda. The result, Trzupek reports, is a plethora of regulations that have warped incentives and thwarted American industry’s ability to create long-term wealth.

With these forces now focused on climate change and initiatives to reduce fossil fuel use, Regulators Gone Wild contends that the march to castigate and control industry is entering an unprecedented and dangerous phase that could put the economic fortunes of the country in peril for generations.
