; Paperback: Regnery, 1996.
This book sorts out commonly accepted "facts" about the environment from the many exaggerations and outright falsehoods in contemporary science textbooks and mass media reporting. It is the first guidebook to help parents counter irresponsible claims by powerful environmental extremists, to sort myths from scientific realities, speculation and theory from proven fact, and answer children's frequently asked questions about the environment.
"Finally somebody has produced a readable book on the environment based on sound scientific facts. FACTS, NOT FEAR is essential reading for parents and teachers who want children to learn the truth behind today's frightening headlines of ecological disaster." — John Fund, The Wall Street Journal
"FACTS, NOT FEAR is what parents and teachers need to keep a sense of balance about our environment." — Marilyn Quayle
