Paul Ehrlich Says He Was Right

“The oceans will be as dead as Lake Erie in less than a decade.”

“America will be subject to water rationing by 1974 and food rationing by 1980.”

  1. The ‘Population Bomb’ was ‘peer reviewed’? A peer is one’s equal, or in other words it was reviewed by people who were just as incompetent. Declaring the collective efforts of like minded idiots ‘science’ basically says it all. Observation and measurement, together with sound theory, apparently have no place in ‘science’. Ehrlich presented the powers that be with the age old, and discredited, Malthusian myth they want to hear, it has nothing to do with ‘science’. His nonsense justifies tyranny, and will never lack sponsorship.

    • What is worrying is the destruction of the energy industry and of farming by Ehrlich’s acolytes ,combined with the mysterious destruction of 122 food processing and distribution plants, may render his prophesies self fulfilling, but will have nothing to do with population pressure.

    How can it be that someone who totally failed with every single of his great predictions was awarded with “virtually every scientific honor”?
    That would be like giving a Nobel prize to 2 presidential candidates of the US democrats within just 3 years .
    8 billion people on the planet,200 countries and 2 buddies from the same exclusive club are the lucky ones.
    Just as coincidental as they gave this prize 100 years ago to a US president who promised to not go to war after he went to war (selling out to the FED always pays)

    In a just system where massive failures get the appropriate punishment he would have been banned and executed long time ago.

    Funny btw that someone who wrote a book about artificial depopulation and forced mass castration complains about the ” usual right wing force”.
    He made it clear that totalitarianism and genozide is a left thing.
    And just because the aristocracy of academia and money is smarter than the previous generations of tyrants and hide their evil behind philanthropy and good intentions
    doesn’t make them better.

    Ehrlich and Krugman, two leftist A-holes that have made a career out of being dead wrong every single time.

    For those that don’t already know it, here is one of the most dangerous people in the world, and he’s supposedly a Republican

  5. Eli the Pit Bull says:

    Broken people seek power.
    That is all……

  6. Petit_Barde says:

    I wonder if P.R.E. is just a corrupt clown or if he is completely insane.
    Maybe both.

  7. Billyjack says:

    Ehrlich is just another example of the intelligence of government clergy, like Al Gore & Greta.

  8. Bob G says:

    I recall learning in school 50 years ago that we are running out of topsoil and we are all going to starve. instead crop yields have almost doubled. like Reagan said just get the government out of the way and we will be fine. sadly that’s easier said than done

  9. Mikegeo says:

    Erhlich displays the attributes of a classic psychopath. They are always right and always the smartest person in the room. If something doesn’t turn out “right”, it’s not their fault because you’ve misinterpreted , and they have zero empathy and understanding for any other person on the planet.
    They are a scourge on humanity.

  10. Fred Harwood says:

    Narcissistic authority wannabe.

  11. GWS says:

    Being wrong means nothing when you’re rewarded for being on the right team.

  12. ken says:

    Ehrlich is correct about too many people on earth; now if he’d hurry up and die I’d be eternally grateful.

  13. Kent Clizbe says:

    Paul Ehrlich is a prototypical PC-Progressive psychopath.

    Anthony Fauci is a carbon copy of the exact same psychopathology.

    Both put themselves on pedestals and revere their own words as “The Science.”

    Truth and the search for it be damned.

    Destruction of Normal America, one lie at a time.

  14. Paul Ehrlich’s : ” If I’m always wrong so is science since my work is always peer reviewed including the POPULATION BOMB and I’ve gotten virtually every scientific honor ”

    The Population Bomb was a work of failed prophecy and it is fair to say Ehrlich was consistently and predominantly wrong Now , he is enshrouding himself in awarded titles and the aura of ‘sacred science ” Here is another prize quotation from Chapter 22 of Robert Jay Lifton’s ‘ Thought Reform and the Psychology of Totalism ” Tony that casts light on the philosopher king grandiosity of Ehrlich and Mike Mann :

    ” The totalist milieu maintains an aura of sacredness around its basic dogma holding it out as an ultimate moral vision …….While thus transcending ordinary concerns of logic ,however ,the milieu at the same time makes an exaggerated claim of airtight logic , of absolute ‘scientific ‘ precision . Thus the ultimate moral vision becomes an ultimate science ; and the man who dares to criticize it , or to harbor even unspoken alternative ideas becomes not only immoral and irreverent but also ‘unscientific ‘ . In this way the “philosopher kings of modern ideological totalism reinforce their authority by claiming to share in the rich and respected heritage of natural science “

  15. Disillusioned says:

    … I’ve gotten virtually every scientific honor

    Honors given by members of an echo chamber is not science. It is a circle jerk.
