Cassandra Conference: Resources and the Human Predicament

by Paul R. Ehrlich (Editor), John P. Holdren (Editor)

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
In Greek mythology, Cassandra's prophecies of doom were ignored, with disastrous results. Three millennia after the Trojan Wars, a group of academics gathered in Texas to assess the major problems confronting humanity, and this useful book is the result. If the potential calamitiesfood supply, population, energy, acid rain, toxic wastes, and nuclear warare daunting, the book's tone is generally hopeful. Many readers will appreciate this thorough overview of what awaits us unless, this time, wisdom prevails. Recommended. Ian Wallace, Agriculture Canada Library, St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec
