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.

  • Humanity is on the verge of abolishing hunger ; food scarcity is a local or regional problem and is not indicative of overpopulation

  • Stratospheric ozone depletion is a hoax
