Hog Wash chronicles the efforts of a group of international environmentalists, investors, and researchers as they attempt to find an ecologically friendly process to clean-up the toxic waste pouring into lakes, rivers, and streams from confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs). This book begins in New Orleans but quickly transitions to Brussels, London, Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, and Rome. Hog Wash is a first-hand account of what can go terribly wrong when well-intentioned, but naïve academics confront savvy, experienced conmen. There was too much at stake for this project to ever be successful. Too many powerful, wealthy people had too much to lose by protecting the environment. Hog Wash is the third installment of John W. Sutherlin’s ‘environmental trilogy’. Like his previous books, Hog Wash is methodically documented and written in an accessible style that is more like a novel than nonfiction.
John W. Sutherlin is a professor of political science and public administration and the Chief Innovation & Research Officer for the University of Louisiana Monroe.
