Paul Ehrlich

So, regarding the time frame, I'm only too willing to admit that my crystal ball, like everybody else's, is cracked. If I could predict precisely, I would have started predicting the stock market and would now be living with a bunch of young women on Bora Bora, having bought it.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]
There are a lot of signs. One of the things that makes me most nervous is the disappearance of the frogs. They're going downhill all over the planet. Frogs are susceptible to all kinds of problems, because they require water to breed and their skin is very porous. Their condition is nerve racking.More Paul Ehrlich quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Solving the population problem is not going to solve the problems of racism... of sexism... of religious intolerance... of war... of gross economic inequality But if you don't solve the population problem, you're not going to solve any of those problems. Whatever problem you're interested in, you're not going to solve it unless you also solve the population problem. Whatever your cause, it's a lost cause without population control.More Paul Ehrlich quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Actually, the problem in the world is that there are too many rich people.More Paul Ehrlich quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
