“Give all power and money to the Government to stop Climate Change or you’ll be forced to eat the corpses of your loved ones,” goes the completely reasonable and non-hysterical line of argument.
(Paul) Ehrlich, a Stanford University biologist famous for his widely debunked book “The Population Bomb,” doubled down on his climate change and overpopulation fear-mongering with HuffPost Live on May 21. Ehrlich warned host Josh Zepps that the dangers of overpopulation are growing, blaming Republicans and the media for failing to take action. While hawking a new book called “Hope On Earth,” Ehrlich’s co-author Michael Tobias praised Ehrlich’s older, outrageously wrong predictions and said they underestimated the problem.

Ehrlich, after falsely predicting human “oblivion” 46 years ago, told Zepps humans must soon begin contemplating “eat[ing] the bodies of your dead” after resources are depleted.
In ‘The Population Bomb,’ Ehrlich made totally rational and scientific predictions that famine would obliterate half of the Earth’s human population by the mid 1980’s. About twenty years ago, he switched his apocalyptic alarmism from overpopulation to Climate Change. He is hailed as a Prophet among Climate Change believers.
