Excellent News : Ehrlich Says We Won’t Starve Until The 1980s

“By…[1975] some experts feel that food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions. Other experts, more optimistic, think the ultimate food-population collision will not occur until the decade of the 1980s.”

• Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist

    Damned adaptable humans keep ruining some great predictions.

    This man seems like a douche.

    Ehrlich, in his twitter feeds, sounds like a bitter and angry person. He will be remembered as a joke to be laughed at for being so wrong in his predictions about population. His jumping on the global warming bandwaggon with Mike Mann only further damages the credibility of climate science as Ehrlich is the poster child of incompetant pseudo-scientists. 🙂

    I don’t recall any hunger pangs in the ’80s. In fact I don’t recall any hunger ever. Currently. I live in a remote part of the world. There is an abundance of all types of food of excellent quality.

    I have heard of regional famine. After investigating this, I found that the governments of famine plagued countries sequester the donated food, and sell it to those who can afford it. Basically, there is no food shortage, but there is political corruption. There is something mentally askew with this Ehrlich dude.

    Norman Borlaug is responsible for the surplus of food we enjoy today

    Ehrlich was recently interviewed (2011) and asked about the pile of crap that constitutes his predictive record. He said-

    “Well first of all, the predictions that most people quote were actually scenarios, little stories about the future we said would not come exactly true…”

    In other words, no-one should have paid him any attention then, because he had the same credibility as the daily horoscope- “for entertainment value only.” That is also consistent with his many appearances on the Tonight Show.

    He also said- “Everybody who understands the situation is scared witless.”
    I certainly include Ehrlich in the witless horde.

  7. I have personal experience of food shortage – there’s a shelf in my ‘fridge with only 3 items on it. By this evening, that might have decreased to 2. I’m really worried – where’s it all gonna end?

    All I can say is thank God for the internet and the bloggers who use it to spread the good news or as some would put it “the truth”. No wonder some left wing governments incl Australias are considering tracking those despicable types who use the internet to bypass the government propaganda ie lies. People now have the capacity to oversee their governments and that makes many politicians very afraid. I guess it also shows how dumb they are to think they could get away with deceipt.
