Ehrlich 1971 : The Pope And Nixon To Destroy The Planet

Ehlrich said that young people would stop purchasing cars and gasoline.

28 July 1971

Dr. Ehrlich is savagely critical of people he labels as “environmental villains, ecological Uncle Toms, the dum-dums and yo-yos of the Establishment.”

Among his targets are the National Academy of Sciences, the Atomic Energy Commission, the Pope, the petrochemical industry, and President Nixon.

“President Nixon has made it abundantly clear that he can be counted on to do practically nothing . . . and if we ever should get our own country on the rightroad with the right leaders, we’re still going to have to work double hard to see to it that their counterparts in the Soviet Union, China, and so on, are also removed from power, and put out on the happy farm where they belong.”

Dr. Ehrlich feels that man’s last hope lies in the emergence of a new youth movement based on the population-pollution issue, and he foresees tremendous opposition to the movement from the Establishment.

“The movement is going to generate a lot of civil disobedience,” he points out, “similar to what we saw in the early days of civil rights: demonstrations, picketing, sit-ins. I think we will soon see boycotting of the automobile industry, the oil companies, the utilities. Among other things, people are just going to stop paying their bills.


Forty years later, this mental giant is still at it.

    The man has been wrong his entire life and lives in a fantasy world. In the real world we laugh at him and reject him so he becomes defensive and hostile. He is having trouble coping with his failure in his old age.

    Not because they want to, but because they can’t pay their skyrocketing energy bills anymore.
    The green energy mess must be stopped asap.

  3. He has been richly rewarded in academia and continues to be showered with honors. One needs to appreciate that being serially wrong about nearly everything is not so important so long as one has the “correct” opinions on such matters.

    Nixon. Ha ha ha. The one that gave us ‘Hispanic’, OSHA, DEA, EPA, and some other troubles.
