Annotation:
This article reviews the book entitled Accounting for Race in Environmental Thought. In a brief foreword, Eugene Hargrove identifies two main reasons that environmental ethicists have ignored environmental justice and environmental racism. The book discusses how environmental racism often operates behind a race-neutral "mask" like mainstream economic theory, which justifies concentrating the economic harm from toxic dumping in low-wage communities and countries that happen to be predominantly non-white. The book contains an essay giving a brief history of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) environmental justice efforts written by two EPA officials, which the book reviewer feels is dated.
