Summary: In Betrayal of Science and Reason, the Ehrlichs explain clearly and with scientific objectivity the empirical findings behind environmental issues including population growth, desertification, food production, global warming, ozone depletion, acid rain, and biodiversity loss. They systematically debunk revisionist "truths" such as :

    and may even be beneficial
  • Humanity is on the verge of abolishing hunger ; food scarcity is a local or regional problem and is not indicative of overpopulation
  • There is no extinction crisis

  • Stratospheric ozone depletion is a hoax
  • Risks posed by toxic substances are vastly exaggerated
