Losing Ground: Environmental Stress and World Food Prospectsby Erik P. Eckholm
Current discussion of the environmental crisis often centers on the pollution problems of the industrial world. The author calls for massive tree-planting campaigns, agricultural reforms to benefit peasant farmers, and a slowdown in world population growth. He predicts that, unless there is a major shift in global political priorities, a third of mankind will become mired in hopeless destitution, a tragedy with ominous implications for world order.
