"A hallmark of Human Natures in Paul Ehrlich's ability to convey lucidly that understanding in the course of presenting an engrossing history of our species. Using personal anecdote, vivid example, and stimulating narrative, he guides us through the thicket of controversies over what science can - and cannot - say about the influence of our evolutionary past on everything from race to religion, from sexual orientation to economic development."--Jacket
Betrayal of science and reason : how anti-environmental rhetoric threatens our future by Paul R Ehrlich( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 1,711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this hard-hitting and timely book, world-renowned scientists and writers Paul R. Ehrlich and Anne H. Ehrlich speak out against what they call the "brownlash." Brownlash rhetoric, created by public relations spokespersons and a few dissident scientists, is a deliberate misstatement of scientific findings designed to support an anti-environmental world view and political agenda. As such, it is deeply disturbing to environmental scientists across the country. The agenda of brownlash proponents is rarely revealed, and the confusion and distraction its rhetoric creates among policymakers and the public prolong an already difficult search for realistic and equitable solutions to global environmental problems. In Betrayal of Science and Reason, the Ehrlichs explain clearly and with scientific objectivity the empirical findings behind environmental issues including population growth, desertification, food production, global warming, ozone depletion, acid rain, and biodiversity loss. They systematically debunk revisionist "truths" and counter the erroneous information and misrepresentation put forth by the brownlash, presenting accurate scientific information about current environmental threats that can be used to evaluate critically and respond to the commentary of the brownlash. They include important background material on how science works and provide extensive references to pertinent scientific literature. In addition, they discuss how scientists can speak out on matters of societal urgency yet retain scientific integrity and the support of the scientific community. Betrayal of Science and Reason is an eye-opening look at current environmental problems and the fundamental importance of the scientific process in solving them. It presents unique insight into the sources and implications of anti-environmental rhetoric, and provides readers with a valuable means of understanding and refuting the feel-good fables that constitute the brownlash

Wild solutions : how biodiversity is money in the bank by Andrew J Beattie( Book )

24 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 1,438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We live on an unexplored planet, ignorant of more than eighty percent of the species that share our world. In this illustrated book, two eminent ecologists discuss the biological diversity of Earth, showing how the natural systems that surround us play an essential role in protecting our basic life-support systems." "Andrew Beattie and Paul Ehrlich tell us about the millions of species providing ecosystem services that maintain the quality of our air and water and the fertility of the soil, dispose of domestic, industrial, and agricultural waste, and protect crops from pests. The authors also describe how biological diversity opens the way for new medicines, construction materials and designs, and manufactured goods. They point to innovative industries that harness species for the biological repair of damaged landscapes, biological mining, biological pest control, and biomonitoring of the environment. The organisms upon which these activities are founded - although often microscopic, obscure, or bizarre - provide natural capital that is worth infinitely more than anyone has previously thought. The authors urge us to protect the biological wealth of our Earth from destructive human activity."--Jacket

The golden door : international migration, Mexico, and the United States by Paul R Ehrlich( Book )

12 editions published between 1979 and 2008 in English and held by 1,081 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Our most potentially disastrous national problem, along with the danger of nuclear war and threats to the environment, is the pressing catastrophe of massive illegal immigration. The 2,000 mile United States-Mexican border is the only place in the world where a wealthy, heavily industrialized stable country is confronted directly by a struggling, preindustrial nation. United States prosperity relies on a stable population, and Mexico, with her burgeoning population, increasing poverty, and massive unemployment is threatening the traditional U.S. life-style. Stereotyped thinking, based on racism or fear, will not solve these problems. The Golden Door is a sensitive exploration of a difficult situation, and this edition includes new material on the Cuban, Salvadoran, and Haitian migration to the United States"--P. [4] of cover
The dominant animal : human evolution and the environment by Paul R Ehrlich( Book )

23 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,074 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over millions of years and through countless genetic twists and turns, humanity has evolved into the dominant animal. We have populated the globe, reshaped most landscapes, eradicated myriad populations and species of other organisms, and even transformed the oceans and climate." "The vast environmental changes we have produced and the intricate cultures we have created are now shaping evolution. From the complex workings of our genes to what we eat and how we govern ourselves, we are changing our world and our world is changing us. We are creating our future. But what kind of future will it be?" "Renowned scientists and thinkers Paul R. Ehrlich and Anne H. Ehrlich tackle that fundamental question in this exploration of evolution, environment, and culture. The Dominant Animal is a scientific field trip across time and space, from the microscopic to the global. The Ehrlichs weave together the theories of Darwin, empirical studies of fruit flies, lizards, and disease, the fossil record, the psychology of perception and belief systems, the nature of the human genome, and the power of culture and environment into a single illuminating thread."--Jacket
