In the article "Resources, population, environment: An oversupply of false bad news" by Julian L. Simon (27 June, p. 1431), an error was introduced in production. On page 1435, column 1, paragraph 4, under the heading Fact, the second sentence should have read, "And the increase [in land used for urban areas plus roadways] over the half century starting in 1920 was only 0.00025 of total land annually," not "0.00025 percent" as printed.
