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.
So according to their way of thinking, genocide is a good thing. So no more guilt about the Native populations being killed by Europeans. And no more lectures about the evils of the Holocaust. And please no more immunizations of children it just spoils nature's plan.
No more money for AIDs research. No more UNICEF. No more CARE, No more Med Schools. And hooray for war and famine and disease and disasters.
Yep let's celebrate DEATH. I can see the bumper sticker now.
Love The Planet. Kill.
Reminds me of Clancy's Rainbow Seven book.
It is also striking to me that the Sierra Club has said nary a word on the illegal immigration issue. I guess they have no problem with the environment getting spoiled, as long as the Third World does the deed.
I hate it that the endangered species act protects bugs and rats over the needs of people. Many environmentalist want to go back to the stone age. Now the want to do away with people!
This little twit can't be very serious about this, or he'd have done the right thing and offed himself. And, WE are supposed to take HIM seriously???
....because only they are smart enough to know we need to go and make the ultimate sacrifice so they can continue being so smart.

As a **former** long term member, I called their SF office about SB 2611. The response I recieved was eye-opening to say the least.....and ended up with me cancelling my membership.
John Muir would be embarrassed by these politically correct putzs.
So why don't you volunteer to jump off a bridge you earth worshiping fool!
Yes, "of us" left.... Hitler just wanted to get rid of the Jews... these nuts want to get rid of the 90% of all humans. Will liberals see the connections to the monster Hitler and his superior race ideas? Probably not.
What's the word on the cause of this wildfire? Most of the others in the state have been caused by lightning. I assumed lightning was always really warm. :P
On the other hand, perhaps Al Gore is the cause of global warming with all the hot air he spews out.
I see you beat me on the Al Gore statement.
Well, you know what they say about great minds ~LOL~
They said, this afternoon, it was caused by a transient's campfire.
In that case, I don't see how global warming could cause this. Flame + Tinder=Fire. It's always worked that way.
Technically, Eric, you are no smarter than bacteria!
Of course they do. Hitler was a National Socialist (Nazi). Liberals love socialists.
It is frightening that this is becoming standard leftism. It's not quite there yet, but in ten years it will be politically correct gospel to say that 90% of the world's people should be purged in a new Holocaust. By then the Islamofascists will all have nukes and the leftists will urge them to destroy the world so that humanity might be eradicated.
I'll say what I always say when I hear this line of crap: If you're so anxious to save Mother Earth from us humans, here's a pistol with one bullet. Show us the way, Enlightened One.
