Top 10 Stupid Human-Hating Ecologists

Ecology should be an honorable profession, but its leadership is flawed when they distort data, denigrate human existence, foment hysteria to sell apocalyptic screeds, and reject technological solutions.  Civilization is presently over-ripe with idiotic environmental activists.  Here’s my list of the worst, with quotes from their misanthropic ideology:

Paul Ehrlich, population biologist, Stanford University
King of the pessimistic screechers, it would require a book to list all his foolish ideas… actually, he’s written several.  Here’s a random sampling:

“In ten years [by 1980] all important animal life in the sea will be extinct. Large areas of coastline will have to be evacuated because of the stench of dead fish.”

“We must go back to the spinning wheel, returning to a beatific state of endless drudge labor, six days a week…”

“In the 1970’s… hundreds of millions of people are going to starve to death…”

“I would take even money that England will not exist in the year 2000.”

John Davis, former editor of Earth First! Journal
Winner of my “Pol Pot” award for advocating mass homicide.
“Human beings, as a species, have no more value than slugs… I suspect that eradicating smallpox was wrong.  It played an important part in balancing ecosystems.”

David Foreman, founder of Earth First!
His vision is even more annihilating:
“Phasing out the human race will solve every problem on Earth, social and environmental…  It may take our extinction to set things straight.”

Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, ex-president of the World Wildlife Fund  Winner of my “Inbred Royal Vicious Retard” trophy for his remark:
“If I were reincarnated I would wish to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels.”

David Graber, National Park Service.  Another germophile
“Some of us can only hope for the right virus to come along.”

Carl Amery, German author

Give him a “Green Nazi” ribbon for this comment:
“We, in the green movement, aspire to a cultural model in which killing a forest will be considered more contemptible and more criminal than the sale of 6-year-old children to Asian brothels.”

Pentti Linkola, Finnish ecophilosopher
Co-winner of my Luddite Award:
“Everything we have developed in the last 100 years should be destroyed.”

John Shuttleworth, founder of Mother Earth News
Sharing Luddite honors:
“The only real good technology is no technology at all.”

Maurice Strong, first director of the United Nations Environment Programme:
“Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrial civilizations collapse?  Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?”

Lamont Cole: Yale University
Give him a “Mean Math Moron” trophy for this equation:
“To feed a starving child is to exacerbate the world population problem.”

Honorable Mention goes to David Brower, Paul Watson, Judi Bari, John Zerzan, and Ted Turner.  If I failed to include your favorite eco-fascist, please email me at hankhyena1@gmail.

    These are not Ecologists. An Ecologist is a scientist. An Environmentalist is the word you are looking for with these folks. It is a sign of true ignorance when you argue your point with the wrong terms and with the wrong people. These are muckrakers just as you are. This is circular not helpful.

    Most of them are right. Humans are awful.

    Was Paul Ehrlich somehow incorrect; coastlines never made briny amoeba and trash grottoes, drudge never forced upon humanity in great numbers for survival overall, mere tens of millions starved dead in the 1970s, and England never blinked from the earth in 2000?
