Paul Ehrlich told us that we were all going to die between 1970 and 1985, but things have gotten better. He now says that the catastrophe won’t strike for two more generations.
Forty-five years of continuous insanity from John Holdren’s best buddy.

I’ll bet Erlich is voting to kill the grandchildren. He wanted to kill them before they were born in the 60’s.
It’s a moral thing to think of the children, the problem with these assclowns is they don’t have your children in their intress just theirs.
Such a bold and long range prediction.
I guess Ehrlich has learned a thing or two.
Will no flight of stairs arise to cleanse the Earth of this fool ?
Ehrlich hasn’t learned anything. He’s been spewing out the same drivel decade-after-decade like a brainless parrot. Ehrlich never gets tired of being wrong, and what’s worse, he gets paid for being wrong. Academia it seems is a lot like politics, the more stupid and incompetent you are the higher up the chain of command you get. RME !
Still can’t bring yourself to cite what Ehrlich actually said. You must be quite the bully in RPG matches!
Are you just here to be dense?
Being dense would lend your blog more gravitas than it generates on its own — but no, I’m just calling your bluff again. I’m here to speak up for accuracy.
As Thoreau said, “Why are you not here, Waldo?”
“Being dense would lend your blog more gravitas than it generates on its own…”
Oh my. Such a low opinion of this site. And yet…..here you are Ed.
As John Ray said; “Misery loves company.”
@Ed: “I’m here to speak up for accuracy.”
No … you are here to speak up for ideology … and a sickening one at that. To defend Ehrlich is simply disgusting … the man is evil.
Ehrlich must be a lot like Hansen, who is always “quoted out of context” by his defenders. Unfortunately, when I’ve regularly gone off to review the full context, I’ve found the full text even more damning than the sound bite.
@Will : Absolutely … the full text is almost always worse.
What Hugh K said and this!
You’re a moron.
I couldn’t agree more Ed…better an honest Mormon than a dishonest liar.
“..cite what Ehrlich actually said..”
..and yet you didn’t, either. How many angels are actually on that pin?
Of course, someone is going to have to pay for all of this.
What a naive buffoon Ehrlich is. Romney is an amateur compared to Obama when it comes to lying. He has to have dementia to be so detached from reality.
The last major drought in Illinois was 1988 when corn yields were 73 bushels per acre. As you can see the apocalyptic drought of 2012, that killed us all in Illinois 🙂 , left Illinois with 122 bushels per acre. Other scientists get it but Ehrlich is a brain farting moron with no vision who spews Mayan apocalyptic hoaxes wrapped in pseudoscience also know as cargo cult science.
For those with functioning non-Ehrlich brains, we are are on the verge of new hybrid seed technology that will double yields per acre even in drought conditions. There are those whose work betters mankind’s lot and there are those whose work is a wasted detour for humanity. Ehlich’s work represents the latter. Humanity would have been far better off if Paul Ehrlich had been a ditch digger where he would have actually benefitted mankind.
Yes, soon we will get 200 bushels an acre from a dead corn stalk.

Steven got owned by Ed. ha!
Note to self (don’t forget the sarcastic tag)
OK, that’s great, thanks note to self.
Steven is probably tea-bagging Ed, that’s why his last comments were muffled, Waite.. how does that even work?
He can be put into the pending bin that require moderator approval for the public view.It is possible that Steve and Ed are now jousting through the pending bin but I doubt it.
I grant Ehrlich the toe of a steel cap where it would do the best good.!
not sure if thats mouth or butt?
aw hell go for broke do both!
that bastard and his friends, got into the ed depts of aus schools in the early 70s and ruined a lot of young lives.
mine among em.
revenge would be sweet. I want to see him, strong, hansen etc all PAY for the ruin they have caused., and gore as well for damage to kids nowdays.
spreading lies and fear, and pure bullshit with no comeback. sucks.
Funny, its Obama and his friends in Congress who have been stealing all my kids and grandkids money since they took control.
Thank goodness we didn’t elect the successful businessman.
Thanks to ‘educators’ like herr Ehrlich, we actually re-elected Carter this time around.
