Summary "Throughout the past five decades tehre have been many forecasts of impending environmental doom. These projections have universally been proven wrong. Those who have bet on human resourcefulness, on the other hand, have almost always been correct. Science journalist Ronald Bailey has spent the bulk of his career speaking sense in a world of polemical alarmism. In this clear... fact-based assessment, Bailey provides a detailed examination of the theories, studies, and assumptions currently spurring forecasts of calamity and shaping environmental policy." -- Jacket.
