Dixie Lee Ray, former governor of Washington and former Atomic Energy Commission chairman, discussed her book Trashing The Planet: How Science Can Help Us Deal With Acid Rain, Depletion of the Ozone and Nuclear Waste (Among Other Things). The book deals with scientific means of environmental management and media distortion of environmental issues. She discussed her work as a scientist, her years of involvement in government, and the misinformation she perceived in the media on the environment that led to the writing of the book. For example, she said temperature records for the past hundred years show no unnatural increase in global temperatures despite the heavy media emphasis on global warning. close
