Convincing to environmentalists, maybe not to everyone else

by rsquincy (WorldCat user published 2016-01-18) Very Good Permalink

I liked this piece, but perhaps Ehrenfeld could have been more convincing for non-environmentalists. Sometimes he comes across as kooky instead of an objective critic of humanism.
