Gadgil argues passionately against directing energy, water and raw materials towards intensive agriculture and urban development at the cost of the rural poor. Madhav Gadgil has a Ph.D. in mathematical ecology from Harvard University. He teaches and researches at the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, with visiting appointments at the universities of Stanford and Berkeley.
