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]
After The Bomb we developed a fairly good system for moving food around and have avoided the kind of massive famines that attract the media. Although of course we've had a fair number of them, particularly in Africa, since The Bomb was written. But we have had a steady level of attrition of malnutrition and malnutrition-related disease. Probably something on the order of 5 to 10 million people starve to death each year, but they're spread out; they're not dramatic news events.More Paul Ehrlich quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To err is human, but to really foul things up you need a computer.More Paul Ehrlich quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
People have to decide, first of all, how they'd like to live, and how secure they want to be from disaster. After that, scientists can help determine what would be necessary to achieve that.More Paul Ehrlich quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You take the huge income that comes with a big gas tax, and you use it to pay off regressive taxes like the FICA [Federal Insurance Contributions Act] tax. You can help the poor in other ways besides giving them cheap gas. You want to send the message that people want to be as efficient as possible using gasoline until we can transition away from that need entirely.More Paul Ehrlich quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
