E-Book by the Staff of Environment & Energy Publishing

Five years ago, North Carolina veered from being a fairly moderate, progressive state and took a hard right when the Republican party gained control. The eBook “Turning Carolina Red: Reports from the Front of an Energy Culture War” examines the forces that shaped the sudden change in the state’s political ideology. With this innovative eBook, Environment & Energy Publishing provides a comprehensive look at how this political shift is affecting environmental and energy policies in the state and across the country.

Opening with the catastrophic Dan River coal ash spill in 2014, the book gives a detailed account of how the disaster influenced environmental policies in the new paradigm and explores the broader context of electricity generation in the state.

The book also studies the players shaping policy, from members of the General Assembly and state regulators, to environmental groups and conservative think tanks. Throughout, the authors weave a cautionary tale of the power of money in politics. You won’t find a better account of the changes and impacts on North Carolina than this. — Review by Amy Adams, Appalachian Voices N.C. Campaign Coordinator
