About this title:

Synopsis: If you think the world is a time bomb ready to explode, consider this: Cancer deaths are going down, not up. The infant mortality rate is at an all-time low, while our population over 60 is at an all-time high. The 1988 U.S. summer drought was caused by tropical disturbances in the Pacific Ocean and, contrary to the popular media, had little to do with the "greenhouse effect." Here’s the book that explodes the many myths about... Our Precarious Habitat Fifteen Years Later Earth Day 1970. "Apocalyptics" such as eminent physiologist and Nobel Laureate George Wald were predicting large-scale environmental doom by the year 2000, and a movement was under way that would influence our thoughts and opinions about the health of the planet to this day. Today, nearly twenty years later, those predictions appear well off the mark. In this book, Dr. Melvin Benarde, one of today’s leading environmental experts, challenges the remaining environmental myths of our time. He comes armed with a healthy skepticism of the "facts," plus scientifically documented evidence indicating, in many cases, that "our precarious habitat" is not as precarious as the doomsayers would have us believe. Questioning current environmental myths is an idea whose time has come. By initiating the inquest, Our Precarious Habitat stands at the forefront of a new environmental era, an era whose watchword is accountability. This book benefits all of us—concerned citizens, elected officials, members of industry, and the media alike—who want a clearer perspective on the issues that will determine our environmental fate.

From the Publisher: Assesses recent scientific findings concerning the impact of environmental risk factors on human health. Emphasizes the need to adequately research current statements on the status of the environment. Clarifies the economic, social, political, and pyschological ramifications inherent in current environmental issues. Topical subjects covered include chemicals in food, pesticides, forms of pollution, sewage treatment problems, health issues, and the politics of pollution.
