As president of his own Public Relations company and also chair of the David Suzuki Foundation board, James Hoggan argues the greatest environmental problem we face could be the "smog of adversarial rhetoric, propaganda and polarization that stifles discussion and debate." He examines how trust has been undermined and misinformation thrives in I'm Right and You're an Idiot: The Toxic State of Public Discourse and How to Clean it Up (New Society 2016). $19.95. 978-0-86571-817-3

Hoggan's previous books are Climate Cover-up and Do the Right Thing.
