Most ecologists want to make life easy for butterflies and waterfalls. Who can argue with that? Some environmental extremists, however, think what Earth really needs is fewer people. In some cases, billions fewer.
Were no better than bacteria! University of Texas biologist Eric Pianka recently announced. Things are gonna get better after the collapse because we wont be able to decimate the Earth so much, he added. And, I actually think the world will be much better when theres only 10 or 20% of us left.
Pianka dreamed that disease will control the scourge of humanity. He celebrated the potential of Ebola Reston, an airborne strain of the killer virus, to make Earth nearly human-free. Weve got airborne 90% mortality in humans. Killing humans. Think about that.
Just five hours after Piankas March 3 speech to the Texas Academy of Science, which eyewitness Forrest Mims III covered March 31 in The Citizen Scientist, the Academy named Pianka its 2006 Distinguished Texas Scientist. Several hundred scientists gave Pianka a standing ovation, Mimms reported.
Pianka is not alone.
In the April 17 Boston Globe, columnist Cathy Young quoted Texas Lutheran Universitys Brenna McConnell who heard Pianka. Hes a radical thinker, that one! McConnell exclaimed. I mean, hes basically advocating for the death of all but 10% of the current population! And at the risk of sounding just as radical, I think hes right.
As U. Texas Arlingtons Rebecca Calisi observed April 4 on Infowars.com: There is no denying the natural world would be a better place without people. ALL people!
One wonders, among any 10 of Piankas, McConnells, or Calisis loved ones, which nine might they yield to save the Earth? And would these radical thinkers sacrifice themselves to protect our planet?
For his part, William Burger, Ph.D., decried the devastation humans are currently imposing upon our planet. The Curator Emeritus for botany at Chicagos Field Museum of Science last November 9 wrote then-Discovery Institute scholar Jay Richards regarding his book, The Privileged Planet. Burger continued, Still, adding over seventy million new humans to the planet each year, the future looks pretty bleak to me. Surely, the Black Death was one of the best things that ever happened to Europe: elevating the worth of human labor, reducing environmental degradation, and, rather promptly, producing the Renaissance. From where I sit, Planet Earth could use another major human pandemic, and pronto!
What frightful words from a flower expert!
Finnish environmentalist Pentti Linkola calls humanity a sinking ship with 100 passengers and a lifeboat for 10. Those who hate life try to pull more people on board and drown everybody. Those who love and respect life use axes to chop off the extra hands hanging on the gunwale.
At an October 27 hearing of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, Jerry Vlasak of the North American Animal Liberation Front discussed his 2004 recommendations on how to reduce medical research on animals. I dont think youd have to kill assassinate too many vivisectors before you would see a marked decrease in the amount of vivisection going on, Vlasak said. And I think for five lives, 10 lives, 15 human lives, we could save a million, 2 million, 10 million non-human lives. Asked about this comment, Vlasak told the senators: I made that statement. I stand by that statement.
The green movement includes Elves Earth Liberation Front radicals who firebomb houses under construction to prevent their supposed environmental harm (never mind that lumber smoke is a greenhouse gas). Likewise, the Animal Liberation Fronts fanatics have penetrated medical research facilities to free lab rats. If such eco-terrorism delays or blocks cures for deadly diseases, well, who needs all those humans anyway?
Beyond identifying and foiling Islamo-fascist murderers, U.S. law enforcement officials also should locate and defeat eco-terrorists who may try to use disease agents and other pathogens to animate this ideology of mass death. A few vials of mutated Ebola virus could be equally dangerous in the hands of both Muslim extremists and militant ecologists.
While the environmental movement features both sensible and misguided though good-hearted individuals, too many greens love butterflies and waterfalls best when those pesky humans are scrubbed from the landscape.
Mr. Murdock, a New York-based commentator, is a columnist with the Scripps Howard News Service and a senior fellow with the Atlas Economic Research Foundation in Fairfax, Va.
These people should be flagged as terrorists and denied entry to the U.S.
Okay. Them first.
I can almost understand hating America, almost, but hating humanity so much is beyond my ken.
I think Santa should put some anthrax in his stocking.
They should all gather in one place, maybe we can help 'em out.
How come these people never want to put themselves in the 90%? After all, it's all to save the Earth.
If you agree with the policy of only having 10% of the population, you go first so we know your serious.
If it happens and 80% die, the next step will be massive guilt that all the "wrong people" died, as the third world gets decimated, and the West enjoys better living through modern chemistry.
Did he say this before or after the men in white coats came out and took him away?
That's what I said...Eco Radicals first.
I agree with the policy of the Eco Radicals deciding the planet needs to be purged...they can be the first to go. Once they are gone, why would we need the policy?
If a tree fallis in the forest when nobody is there to hear it,
does anybody care?
I just got done listening to a locker room rant by some character who insisted that Bush was to blame for the recent wildfire threatening Sedona, AZ because he beat Al Gore and the "Planet" is so much warmer as a consequence.
"Don't you think it's warmer?" he asked me.
"Yes it definitely is," I replied, "it's June."
(Hence my new tagline.
There was a science fiction story, maybe thirty or forty years ago where an elite (military-industrial international corporation type elite) decided the planet should be purged and commissioned a scientist to find a plague or poison that would primarily affect other (poorer, darker) ethnic groups.
The scientist called a meeting in which he revealed that he had indeed discovered such a targeted agent - and that he had fed them all the agent in the sandwiches - that it was targeted to him, but it should do fairly well at getting rid of the rest of them also.
They pretty much proved that with the banning of DDT, a result of which, millions have died.
After all, it's believed the Anasazi evacuated the area due to a long drought and that was way before George Bush warmed the earth -- though if there has been any warming over the past six years it's the hot air coming out of Al Gore's mouth.
Unsurprisingly, sites like this one are taken quite seriously by certain intellectuals, radical agitators, mainstream Leftist politicos and even the odd rich dude with way too much time on his hands. Never let them have power, never ...
Eco radicals should go find the nearest bridge and jump for the sake of the planet then.
And yet Pentii Linkola still finds the will to go on. Hypocrite!
There are hidden contradictions in the minds of people who "love Nature" while deploring the "artificialities" with which "Man has spoiled 'Nature.' "
The obvious contradiction lies in their choice of words, which imply that Man and his artifacts are not part of "Nature", but beavers and their dams are.
But the contradictions go deeper than this prima-facie absurdity.
In declaring his love for a beaver dam (erected by beavers for beavers' purposes) and his hatred for dams erected by men (for the purposes of men) the "Naturist" reveals his hatred for his own race, i.e. his own self-hatred.
In the case,of "Naturists" such self-hatred is understandable; they are such a sorry lot. But hatred is too strong an emotion to feel toward them; pity and contempt are the most they rate.
As for me, willy-nilly I am a man, not a beaver, and H. sapiens is the only race I have or can have.
Fortunately for me, I like being part of a race made up of men and women, it strikes me as a fine arrangement and perfectly "natural."
