Do you enjoy a pleasant read at bedtime to ease you to a peaceful sleep? Hidden Scourge is NOT one of those books! As the book’s title suggests, you are in for a deep-diving investigative book, one which will roil your guts with fear, shock and outrage. It requires knowledge of sciences, statistics, governance, information management, history, and policy and covers two provinces, one territory and two states. Dr. Timoney is a senior ecologist, living in Alberta. His award-winning book The Peace-Athabasca Delta: Portrait of a Dynamic Ecosystem, established his bona fides for science and scholarly writing. It focuses in part on how exploiting Alberta tar sands has damaged the ecosystem.

There is an urgent need to engage people with nature. All aspects of it. Not just the pretty bears and cute snakes. Also the realities of it, the death, struggles, and pain. Not only are people losing touch with nature, they are losing touch with the realities of nature.
