Inhaltsangabe:

Is the world at an historical threshold, where we risk dooming ourselves and our planet if we don't change the way we exploit the earth's resources? Or are environmentalists being alarmist, underestimating nature's resilience and humanity's adaptiveness?

These and other questions are discussed by environmentalist Norman Myers, and Julian Simon, an economist and outspoken sceptic on environmentalism. This book is a transcript of their provocative exchange in a debate held at Columbia University in October 1992. The authors also provide position statements and replies that let readers judge for themselves whose arguments are more persuasive.

From Library Journal: This book is a transcript of a debate held at Columbia University in October 1992. Myers, an award-winning environmental scientist, warns about the rapid environmental decline in terms of population growth, species loss, urban sprawl, and dwindling resources-concerns he has voiced in previous books, such as Ultimate Security (LJ 8/93) and Gaia: An Atlas of Planet Management (Doubleday, 1992. rev. ed.). Simon (economics, Univ. of Maryland) offers a completely different viewpoint, arguing that the world is in better condition than in the past and will continue to improve because of our ability to solve problems. He uses data from his previous publications, such as Population Matters (Transaction Pubs., 1990). The authors raise interesting issues, but their arguments are often repetitious, and Simon is shrill at times. The authors' previous writings are preferable for a more in-depth treatment.
