Human natures : genes, cultures, and the human prospect by Paul R Ehrlich( Book )

19 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 1,711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 )

18 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 1,706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this hard-hitting and timely book, Paul R. Ehrlich and Anne H. Ehrlich challenge those who downplay the reality and importance of global environmental problems with appealing but misleading rhetoric. Such efforts to undermine and misinterpret environmental data, labeled the "brownlash" by the Ehrlichs, prolong an already difficult search for solutions and are deeply disturbing to environmental scientists. In Betrayal of Science and Reason, the Ehrlichs contrast anti-environmental rhetoric with the consensus view of the scientific community, tackling head-on such issues as population growth, desertification, food production, global warming, ozone depletion, acid rain, and biodiversity loss. They also offer a unique glimpse into how science works, and they discuss how scientists can speak out on matters of societal urgency yet retain the support of the scientific community. This book provides 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 it provides readers with a valuable means of understanding and refuting the feel-good fables that constitute the brownlash

20 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 1,636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 1,427 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 1,082 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 )

25 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and Japanese and held by 1,075 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

Widespread decline. It also treats the birds that have been driven to extinction in the past two centuries, since the stories of their somber fates can help us learn how to save the other birds that are in jeopardy. Because birdwatchers and others are showing increased interest in the tropical birds that survive in Hawaii and Puerto Rico, the book includes separate sections on the imperiled and extinct birds of those areas. Hawaii is of special importance: because it has

Paul Ehrlich and the population bomb( Visual )

4 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The human population is likely to double by the middle of the 21st century, soaring past 10 billion people. How will all these people survive? Will there be enough resources to meet everyone's needs or will there be massive social upheaval, famine, and rampant pollution? These questions have been a consuming passion for biologist and environmental pioneer Paul Ehrlich, who set out decades ago to persuade the world that continued and unchecked population growth would upset the balance of nature and further widen the gap between developed and developing nations. Based on Ehrlich's best-selling book, The Population Bomb, this program features compelling archival footage from around the world, as well as interviews with Ehrlich, his colleagues, and his critics
