Bad news from Paul Ehrlich: We might eventually have to start eating our dead

posted at 11:21 am on May 23, 2014 by Allahpundit

A tasty leftover from Newsbusters. He’s vague on when, precisely, mass cannibalism will become the last best hope of mankind — we’re headed that way “with ridiculous speed” is all he’ll say — but don’t be too hard on this guy for shying away from concrete predictions. He’s tried that before and it didn’t work out so well, although naturally his most devoted acolytes disagree. In a death match between consciousness-raising and inconvenient facts, you can always count on cognitive dissonance to protect the former. Even when the inconvenient fact in question involves hundreds of millions of deaths that didn’t happen.

Clips like this and the one from earlier this week of a climate-change alarmist calling for skeptical politicians to be locked up are always interesting, though, as psychological curios. Clearly both men believe wholeheartedly that the situations they’re addressing are dire; understandably they want to grab the public’s attention and get people agitating. What’s the best way to do that? With scoffworthy predictions and eyeroll-causing remedies that nonetheless attract an audience or with a more sober approach that’s more likely to be taken seriously but less likely to be noticed? Give Ehrlich credit for consistency: He’s always favored sensationalism.

Sensationalism. Stupidity. Promoting a vapid, feckless, mendacious, arrogant, and callous political agenda via fearmongering.

This wanker should have very little credibility whatsoever given his history….and likely left unsaid, is that if there aren’t enough dead to serve as food, his agenda and ‘solutions’ would ensure that they create enough dead to serve as food for the rest.

As one of the few people on this comment board who accepts global warming science, I have to say … Ehrlich is still a damn moron and still giving environmentalism a bad name. Almost everything he says in that audio clip is wrong. He says we’re eating more meat because we have too high a population, which is a bizarre statement. He says a billion people are hungry and two billion micronutrient deficient ignoring that that number has gone DOWN since he wrote the Population Bomb. We’re feeding more people using fewer land and resource than ever. Why does anyone take this gasbag seriously?

jaywemm on May 23, 2014 at 11:37 AM

What else are you going to do when you’re 82 and haven’t had a successful date (pun intended) in your entire life?

Critics have disputed Ehrlich’s central thesis about overpopulation and its effects on the environment and human society, his solutions, as well as some of his specific predictions made since the late 1960s. One criticism focuses on Ehrlich’s allegedly alarmist tone and sensational statements and “predictions” that have turned out to be false. Ronald Bailey of Reason Magazine has called him an “irrepressible doomster … who, as far as I can tell, has never been right in any of his forecasts of imminent catastrophe.”[21] On the first Earth Day in 1970, he warned that “[i]n ten years all important animal life in the sea will be extinct. Large areas of coastline will have to be evacuated because of the stench of dead fish.”[21] In a 1971 speech, he predicted that: “By the year 2000 the United Kingdom will be simply a small group of impoverished islands, inhabited by some 70 million hungry people … If I were a gambler, I would take even money that England will not exist in the year 2000.”[21] When this scenario did not come to pass, he responded that “When you predict the future, you get things wrong. How wrong is another question. I would have lost if I had had taken the bet. However, if you look closely at England, what can I tell you? They’re having all kinds of problems, just like everybody else.”[21] Ehrlich wrote in The Population Bomb that, “India couldn’t possibly feed two hundred million more people by 1980.”[13]

From the beginning of time, people have made money being alarmists, or presenting “amazing” innovative ideas, turning something to gold, global cooling (in the 60 and 70′s), global warming, sail across the sea for riches, fountain of youth, gold tablets, elixers, race riots, total collapse of the economy, Bush/Reagan will launch us into nuclear war, the list is endless.

Damn good trolling but it’s wasted here because we agree with you on the moron part. On the “climate global warming science” part, do you not see how lack of a climate model, any climate mode, that is accurate to within 10% (and that is a big, big miss – think moonshot acceptable errors) is a problem for the “science?” Even the vaunted science popularizer N. deG. Tyson sounded like a blathering idiot on Cosmos the other night, wrapping explanations around the assumptions like a pretzel on a stick.

I’m at work so I’m not going to continue this discussion, you can say whatever you want but really, Hal, the lack of any model which is remotely predictive is a real problem. It leads to fraud.

You can’t compare Ehrlich to global warming. Temperatures rose in the past forty years. Mass starvation didn’t. That they are both “alarmist” means nothing (I’m not alarmist on AGW). Everything Ehrlich predicted was wrong. If AGW had that track record, we’d be in an ice age right now, rather than at the hottest era in a couple of millennia.

Back in the day Erlich wrote a book that was rubbish.
Some half assed lawyer wrote a book (Unsafe at Any Speed) that was crap.
Rachel’s book, Silent Spring was also bullshiite.

Now, an economist at Chicago wagered Erlich on the predictions in his book were absolutely WRONG. The bet was, as I recall $100. Paul agreed and the bet was very well known.
Erlich’s predictions about global health, oil production and food supplies ALL PROOVED WRONG. Not only wrong but not even CLOSE … the world did the EXACT OPPOSITE of his (in his mind) reasoned, evaluated, and modeled PREDICTIONS.
The guy at the Chicago School of Economics will be dead and Paul Erlich HE STILL OWES the lousy hundred bucks.

Just like Dear Liar King Putt, Paul Erlich is a COMPLETE AND UTTER FRAUD.

Yeah, it’s called “weather” and it changes from year to year, decade to decade.

This guy can make predictions, a lot of them, and some will actually come to pass, because if you make enough guesses, one will be correct.

Which is why the major policy pushers of global warming, were also the same one for global cooling in the 70′s, they are bound to hit it “right” since the earth either heats, or it cools, it is never static.

But, good for you, you are one of millions that wish to believe the sky is falling…you have a lot of company.

Nevertheless, I utterly reject the idea that global warming can be reversed by driving crappy cars and making energy quadruple in cost.

I reject that too. Even if we replaced ever car with a Volt, we’d cut CO2 emissions by about 1%. The solution is not collectivist garbage but massive innovation, which would require something anathema to the Left: cutting regulations and taxes to unshackle business and industry.

That’s why I argue the case on conservative boards. We actually solve problems not see any problem as just another excuse for more government.

Clearly both men believe wholeheartedly that the situations they’re addressing are dire

Do they?

Seriously, do they? If they truly *believe* they are so dire that their comments and suggestions are *reasonable* based on those beliefs, then these guys are clearly clinically, pathologically insane, and should be institutionalized before they physically harm themselves or anyone else.

No, I’m not kidding. These guys are as mentally unstable as the guys who thinks they are Napoleon.
