Paul Ehrlich

If we were redesigning around people instead of around automobiles, which I think the market is more or less going to do, although too slowly, than I'd be a lot cheerier.More Paul Ehrlich quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The National Academy of Sciences would be unable to give a unanimous decision if asked whether the sun would rise tomorrow.More Paul Ehrlich quotes [09/10/2011 03:09:38]
I see harm reduction as a way of engaging people as part of that path to recovery.More Paul Ehrlich quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Sometimes I think the Congress feels that if you only decided tomorrow to switch to wind power that in two years we'd be getting 80 percent of our electricity from wind power. It's nonsense. Normally it takes 20 to 30 years after a new technology is demonstrated and deployed before it powers even 15 or 20 percent of the grid. There's this long lag time, and we haven't even decided which directions to go.More Paul Ehrlich quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Overall, The Population Bomb was probably too optimistic. I was writing about climate change - Anne and I actually wrote the book. We discussed whether or not you'd have to take a gondola to the Empire State Building, and that sort of thing, but we didn't know at the time whether the climate change would be in the direction of heating or cooling. We just didn't know enough about it.More Paul Ehrlich quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
