In a sobering analysis of the prospects for mankind's progress in the face of tremendous population growth, Harrison Brown, geochemist at the California Institute of Technology, declares: "Industrialization of the underdeveloped areas of the world is perhaps the most formidable task confronting mankind today." Taking into consideration the various factors of population, natural resources, cultural patterns, and technological propensity, Brown concludes that even if somehow the underdeveloped lands can manage to control population growth, "the path of industrialization would still be extremely difficult, and it would still be fraught with innumerable dangers."
