Promoting Book Sales?

  • Op Ed: Pipe Dreams (New York Times, October 3)
    Commentary: The author of a recently published book, provocatively titled to create a rush to the bookstore, must have taken a hit off the "pipe" he is dreaming of before he wrote this specious piece. The weaknesses (call them "holes") in his whole premise that somehow the drinking water throughout the U.S. is a major threat to the health and well-being of Americans is illustrated by the conflict between his primary arguments. He suggests that all drinking water must be "pure" ...that is to say, nothing but two atoms of hydrogen and one of oxygen. While this is laughable on its face, he goes on to suggest that this goal could be met through the installation of POU filters... as if there exists such a device that produces H20... period. As if... installing one POU filter per house (and what? Deliver raw water elsewhere on the premises?) would protect children playing in the yard on a hot summer day. Zero risk is a fallacy, and you would think that someone who is smart enough to write a hot-button book would understand that, if nothing else.
