"The use of solar energy has not been opened up because the oil industry does not own the sun."
America's Horticultural Communicator of the Year in 2006 and author of the best-selling book known as The Organic Lawn Care Manual, Paul Tukey is the leading anti-lawn pesticide activist in the United States today. His relentless passion to revolutionize the lawn care industry and change homeowners' attitudes about lawns is evident through the film, A Chemical Reaction. He is a former HGTV host, a magazine publisher, and former owner of one of Maine's largest lawn care companies. As a licensed pesticide applicator in the early 1990s, he developed acute chemical sensitivity due to the effects of lawn pesticides.
