CHOICE Review

This thought-provoking book covers a wide range of environmental and health challenges, examining each from various ethical perspectives, linking one to another, and drawing cautious conclusions about what is "acceptable." Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the publication of Rachel Carson's Silent Spring (1962), bioethicist Resnik (NIH) provides a detailed overview of both environmental health and ethical theory. He addresses specific controversies: pesticides, genetically engineered crops, pollution, and the built environment. Chapter 9, "Climate Change, Energy, and Population," is the most significant and difficult. Resnik links these into a single theme of sustainability, and tries to juxtapose individual versus social good when it comes to population growth. Recognizing that unbridled population growth is unsustainable, and that individual unbridled procreation is therefore unethical, he accepts the prediction that world population will level out by about 2050, without addressing the mechanisms of famine, as well as war, which leads many countries to incentivize population growth. This merits ethical analysis as well. Resnik follows, somewhat anticlimactically, with excellent chapters on environmental justice and human research, and a brief concluding chapter. This book would be valuable reading for a wide audience including environmental policy makers and those who influence them. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All readership levels. M.
