"Making a Killing" — Earth Summit Satire
Making a Killing, by William M Johnson. Republished on Amazon Kindle to mark the 20th anniversary of the Rio Earth Summit
RIO (I-Newswire) June 16, 2012 - William M Johnson’s critically-acclaimed satire, Making a Killing, has recently been republished by Iridescent Publishing as an Amazon Kindle ebook [http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0088CGHRM]. The publication marks the 20th anniversary of the Earth Summit (June 20-22), when some 50,000+ dignitaries, bureaucrats, scientists, nature managers, conservationists, business leaders, celebrities, and the world’s press will once again converge upon glamorous Rio de Janeiro for the UN’s “Rio+20” Earth Summit — billed as a ‘once in a lifetime opportunity’ to save the planet.
With elephant-hunting royalty again in the news, nature managers insisting that endangered species must be made to pay for their own conservation, sea levels on the rise and deserts on the march, the frenetic political escapism, corporate wheeling and dealing, and media frenzy that Making a Killing flayed back in 1996, are if anything even more acute today — and just as deserving of this satire’s poison-tipped pen.
A conservation insider with 30 years’ experience with some of the top names in international nature protection, William M Johnson’s other published works include the non-fiction The Rose-Tinted Menagerie, an Observer Book of the Year, soon to be re-released by Iridescent.
Excerpts of Making a Killing are available for free download on Iridescent’s website: www.iridescent-publishing.com.
MAKING A KILLING
An End of the World Black Comedy, ‘the deepest shade of noir...’ — BBC Wildlife
‘[A] highly original, often unexpectedly witty but frightening tale of man’s destruction of the Earth and his seeming indifference to the fate of all creatures but his own. William M Johnson courageously pulls no punches. No one is spared. There are no innocents, either here or abroad... This sharp, brilliantly observed book deserves a wide audience.’ — Virginia McKenna
‘A mind-blowing and witty exposé... A no-holds barred, no mercy account of the conservation mercenaries’ (Have Bad News — Will Travel — First Class) successful efforts to get a rich living from a dying planet... A ‘must’ for the guilty and the innocent so that lessons can be learned before it is too late.’ — Ian MacPhail, a founder of World Wildlife Fund (WWF)
