Description
Davis (political science, U. of Toledo) has served in the US government and as a consultant on energy and environmental issues for some three decades. Picking up on America's love affair with apocalypse, inherited from the Puritans, he discusses four threats that could destroy the world as we know it: global climate change, nuclear war, over-population, and the energy crisis. He begins with a chapter on statistics and planning as prediction. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
