The reviews bring up how great this book is, but never dives into specifics. Heres some quotes, see if you trust this source after reading these.

"DDT is an anti carcinogen."
"DDT has saved more lives in the past 50 years than have antibiotics."

Whatever, just coming from a rachel carson, silent spring lover.

Format: Hardcover
Never before have so many experts weighed in about the most vital matter of all. If you want to know how we earthlings have fared with our environment, you'll find it all here in the well-researched philosophies and hard scientific facts of a multitude of experts. An extraordinarily optimistic and vital must-have on any scientist's book shelf. Far more of a bargain than it appears, this is like having a (literal) World Book 2000 all in one volume.
