The natural environment matters a lot to many people. Their views on issues such as recycling, population control, economic growth and renewable energy are often held strongly and emotionally. But some of these views are best described as 'little green lies'. Sometimes people bend the truth because they believe they are protecting others from the harm caused by environmental decay. Others do it for personal gain. But unlike 'little white lies', telling 'little green lies' is not harmless. If they become so widely accepted that they form the basis of government policies, our society can be worse off for them. They can even end up causing environmental damage. There are twelve propositions addressed in the twelve chapters of this book: 'Peak Oil' has been reached. Renewable energy production should be stimulated. Consumption choices need to be informed by products' 'food miles'/'ecological footprint'/'embodied energy'/'virtual water'/'carbon footprint'. World population should be capped. Economic growth and trade are bad for the environment. No waste should go to landfill. Water and energy should be used 'efficiently', whatever it costs. The environment is of infinite value and must not be harmed. We must reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to avoid global climate change. The care of the environment cannot be entrusted to the private sector. Agriculture and mining are always in conflict with the environment.

Murder, lies and little green men are just the beginning of a very bad day for Kat Parker. By day, Kat works as a waitress at the town's only travel center - truck stop, by night she moonlights as an armature sleuth and paranormal investigator. Life is strange and often unpredictable, but she hasn't seen anything yet. The once peaceful town of Dreamland Junction has been in chaos for weeks, and things are about to get a lot worse. A handsome stranger walks into the ET Landing Café and orders a cup of coffee. Not so unusual, except that she's been seeing the stranger's face in her dreams for weeks, and they are those kinds of dreams that no one ever talks about; the kind that sends you into a cold shower in the wee hours of the morning. To top that off, her best friend is convinced aliens are abducting him while he sleeps, not to mention a young mother is discovered dead off the side of the highway, and her five-year-old son is missing. Warning: Dreamland Junction is not your everyday town, and Kat Parker is not your everyday girl. She has a bad attitude that some might find offensive.

Provocative, passionate and populist, RMB Manifestos are short and concise non-fiction books of literary, critical, and cultural studies. Beginning in 1967 and for just over 30 years, the oil industry toiled in the relative obscurity of Northern Alberta as machines peeled away earth and boreal forest to exhume what has now become one of humanity’s most precious and contentious resources: bitumen. As the years passed, the bitumen mines sprawled, poisonous tailings ponds spread, toxins polluted the environment, cancer reared its head downstream and the price of petroleum soared beyond all expectations. As plans continue to build the Keystone and Northern Gateway pipelines, a growing number of scientists, journalists, First Nations and environmentalists are fighting to raise the alarm about the implications and propaganda surrounding the world’s largest energy project. In his second RMB Manifesto, Jeff Gailus dissects the global war on truth that has come to define the battle for oil. It is a battle fought not with bullets and bombs but with a dark web of Little Black Lies that poses a threat not only to environmental and human health, but to our moral and social well-being.
