About this book

Hard-hitting retort by these two renowned scientists against what they call the `brownlash'. Brownlash rhetoric, created by public relations spokespersons and a few dissident scientists is, according to the Ehrlichs, a deliberate misstatement of scientific findings designed to support an anti-environmental world view and political agenda. The pressing issues of our times: the population explosion, the food, natural resources depletion, and biodiversity crises; global warming and pollution are all addressed.
