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 :

  • Population growth does not cause environmental damage, ...show moreand 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
  • Natural resources are superabundant, if not infinite
  • Global warming and acid rain are not serious threats to humanity
  • Stratospheric ozone depletion is a hoax
  • Risks posed by toxic substances are vastly exaggerated
