Science vs. Scare

“The battle to feed all of humanity is over. In the 1970s hundreds of millions of people will starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now. At this late date nothing can prevent a substantial increase in the world death rate.”  Paul Ehrlich, in his 1968 book, “The Population Bomb”

Modern science and agriculture have proved Malthusian predictions of mass starvation wrong.

The ingenuity of men and women has served us well, let’s not allow junk science and scare mongers to thwart the advancements in agriculture.
