Paul Ehrlich: “Collapse Of Civilisation Is A Near Certainty Within Decades”

Authored by Damian Carrington via The Guardian, edits in brackets

Fifty years after the publication of his controversial book The Population Bomb, biologist Paul Ehrlich warns overpopulation and overconsumption are driving us over the edge…

A shattering collapse of civilisation is a “near certainty” in the next few decades due to humanity’s continuing destruction of the natural world that sustains all life on Earth, according to biologist Prof Paul Ehrlich.

In May, it will be 50 years since the eminent biologist published his most famous and controversial book, The Population Bomb. But Ehrlich remains as outspoken as ever.

The world’s optimum population is less than [530 million people – 8.3 billion] fewer than on the planet today, he argues, and there is an increasing toxification of the entire planet by synthetic chemicals that may be more dangerous to people and wildlife than climate change.

Ehrlich also says an unprecedented redistribution of wealth is needed to end the over-consumption of resources, but “the rich who now run the global system – that hold the annual ‘world destroyer’ meetings in Davos – are unlikely to let it happen”.

 

The Population Bomb, written with his wife Anne Ehrlich in 1968, predicted “hundreds of millions of people are going to starve to death” in the 1970s – a fate that was avoided by the green revolution in intensive agriculture.

Many details and timings of events were wrong, Paul Ehrlich acknowledges today, but he says the book was correct overall.

“Population growth, along with over-consumption per capita, is driving civilisation over the edge: billions of people are now hungry or micronutrient malnourished, and climate disruption is killing people.”

Ehrlich has been at Stanford University since 1959 and is also president of the Millennium Alliance for Humanity and the Biosphere, which works “to reduce the threat of a shattering collapse of civilisation”.

“It is a near certainty in the next few decades, and the risk is increasing continually as long as perpetual growth of the human enterprise remains the goal of economic and political systems,” he says. “As I’ve said many times, ‘perpetual growth is the creed of the cancer cell’.”

It is the combination of high population and high consumption by the rich that is destroying the natural world, he says. Research published by Ehrlich and colleagues in 2017 concluded that this is driving a sixth mass extinction of biodiversity, upon which civilisation depends for clean air, water and food.

The solutions are tough, he says.

“To start, make modern contraception and back-up abortion available to all and give women full equal rights, pay and opportunities with men.

“I hope that would lead to a low enough total fertility rate that the needed shrinkage of population would follow. [But] it will take a very long time to humanely reduce total population to a size that is sustainable.”

 

He estimates an optimum global population size at roughly 1.5 to two billion,

But the longer humanity pursues business as usual, the smaller the sustainable society is likely to prove to be. We’re continuously harvesting the low-hanging fruit, for example by driving fisheries stocks to extinction.”

Ehrlich is also concerned about chemical pollution, which has already reached the most remote corners of the globe.

“The evidence we have is that toxics reduce the intelligence of children, and members of the first heavily influenced generation are now adults.”

He treats this risk with characteristic dark humour:

“The first empirical evidence we are dumbing down Homo sapiens were the Republican debates in the US 2016 presidential elections – and the resultant kakistocracy. On the other hand, toxification may solve the population problem, since sperm counts are plunging.”

 

Reflecting five decades after the publication of The Population Bomb (which he wanted to be titled Population, Resources, and Environment), he says: “No scientist would hold exactly the same views after a half century of further experience, but Anne and I are still proud of our book.” It helped start a worldwide debate on the impact of rising population that continues today, he says.

The book’s strength, Ehrlich says, is that it was short, direct and basically correct. “Its weaknesses were not enough on overconsumption and equity issues. It needed more on women’s rights, and explicit countering of racism – which I’ve spent much of my career and activism trying to counter.

“Too many rich people in the world is a major threat to the human future, and cultural and genetic diversity are great human resources.”

Accusations that the book lent support to racist attitudes to population controlstill hurt today, Ehrlich says. “Having been a co-inventor of the sit-in to desegregate restaurants in Lawrence, Kansas in the 1950s and having published books and articles on the biological ridiculousness of racism, those accusations continue to annoy me.”

But, he says: “You can’t let the possibility that ignorant people will interpret your ideas as racist keep you from discussing critical issues honestly.”

More of Paul and Anne Ehrlich’s reflections on their book are published in The Population Bomb Revisited.

Updated: Prince William – Overpopulation…the biggest challenge

November 3, 2017

11.13.17:  15,000 scientists now agree with Billy Meier’s warnings:

“By failing to adequately limit population growth, reassess the role of an economy rooted in growth, reduce greenhouse gases, incentivise renewable energy, protect habitat, restore ecosystems, curb pollution, halt defaunation, and constrain invasive alien species, humanity is not taking the urgent steps needed to safeguard our imperilled biosphere.”

“We are jeopardising our future by not reining in our intense but geographically and demographically uneven material consumption and by not perceiving continued rapid population growth as a primary driver behind many ecological and even societal threats.”

Rapidly growing human populations [now 8.8 BILLLION] risk having a “terrible impact” on the world, the Duke of Cambridge has warned.

The Duke said that as a result, wildlife was being put under “enormous pressure” and called for the issue to be addressed with renewed vigour.

His concerns echo those of his grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, who in 2011 advocated

“voluntary family limitation” as a means of solving overpopulation,

which he described as the biggest challenge in conservation.

His grandson, royal patron of the Tusk Trust, told the charity’s gala dinner in London that measures needed to be taken to save certain animal populations.

“In my lifetime, we have seen global wildlife populations decline by over half,” he said.

GOTT on Overpopulation

GOTT Ch. 4, line 5

5) And as you create descendants, it shall be done in the measure of insight (rationality) so that the standard measure of the number of all peoples (humankind) does not get out of control in a very bad wise and result in immoderateness (overpopulation) and the world and its weathers, the appearance (nature) and all life on Earth do not suffer great and lasting damage (destruction of the environment/destruction of the climate/extinction of forms of life/wars/crimes, etc.); therefore, the recommendation of insight (rationality) and of control over extent is given for obedience (following) so that no calamity may come over you and your world; consequently, it is recommended that you keep yourselves within bounds (limits) and manage (monitor) the standard measure of the number of all peoples and that you undertake (carry out) a measurement (census) every certain number of years so that the measure of all inhabitants of Earth does not become too great and remains within the number of the maintainable (supportable) without leading to harm (529 million).

105) And in order to achieve fair (responsibility-conscious) authorities which guide the people in a fair (responsible) wise, handling their affairs and desires and requirements in a fair (responsible) wise, then it can only be that the higher ones may not raise themselves up to their area (office/position/post), but are appointed by election (voting) in which case the majority of the votes is decisive; it may be however, that the candidates for an area (office/position/post) in authority are strictly checked (proved) so that only such human beings are appointed to a task who are capable of fulfilling them equitably and in honesty and equitableness (fairness) and without demanding (desiring) personal advantages; and each human being who is called into an area (office/position/ post) of authority shall be remunerated by the people (state) in a fair (proportionate) wise, and not in an exaggerated remuneration, and therefore without special rights and claims as well as without special concession (authority) and special rights (privileges), so that he or she may be ranked equally to any other fair one (responsible one) of the people, so that there may be no position of presumption (superiority/elevation) for the leaders compared to the people; in truth, in all rights all people of your kind (human beings) as people of your kind (human beings) are equal and one is not worth any more than another, therefore there may be no difference between the leaders and the people, and also not between rich and poor, not between those who are knowing and unknowing, not between those who are educated and uneducated, not between fair ones (responsible ones) and unfair ones (irresponsible ones), and neither between believers and those who are knowing of the truth or between kinds (races) and skin colours and peoples.

In our Milky Way galaxy:

  •  1 out of every 22,285 solar systems support life of some kind.
  •  1 out of every 42,507 solar systems support human life or other advanced life forms.

This information was derived from Contact Report 512, which took place on Jan 1 2011.  The contact report was translated into English on May 5th and 6th of that same year.  There are more than 700 documented contact reports of Billy Meier’s conversations with with benevolent human extraterrestrials.

Facts About The Plejaren Federation

August 7, 2016

Overview

The Plejaren Federation is an organization of civilizations from star systems located mostly within the Milky Way galaxy with a minority being extra-galactic members.[1] The dimension or space-time configuration of the member star systems also varies. All sentient races throughout the universe are referred to as human beings even though some would be considered inhuman or perhaps even horrifying in appearance by typically primitive or misguided Earthlings. Billy Meier is the last surviving Earthling who has had contact with members of this Federation. He will continue to have the contacts in a personal form until his death. There were four others who also had contacts with the Federation, all of whom are now dead. The dutiful task of the Federation is to preserve the evolving and already existing human life in the cosmos. Some of their ancestors were our ancestors who lived upon the Earth until 2000 years ago when many migrated back to the Tayget/Plejares/Plejara system.

Quotes

By Semjase of Erra

From Contact Report 3

13. We are not the so-called superhumans or super-beings that people on Earth like to label us from their own lack of knowledge and within their own imagination.

14. We are also not teachers, missionaries or trailblazers.

15. We only have the dutiful task to preserve the evolving and already existing human life in the cosmos.

16. This means that we endeavour to keep order and monitor certain life.

17. We generate contacts here and there with inhabitants of different worlds if our directives allow us, single out some of them, and provide them with explanations, but only if a race is developing towards a higher level and slowly starts thinking.

18. Then we slowly familiarize them with the thought that they are not the only thinking beings in the universe.

19. Now and then we also assist telepathically to instil certain cognitions toward the discovery of technical inventions that are needed at the present time.

30. We are neither guardians nor overseers of terrestrial humankind; we feel obligated to them only because our ancient forefathers were their forefathers prior to their escape from Earth due to self-induced catastrophes by a few power-hungry people, before escaping to the Pleiades—exactly as you have deduced and calculated in the last few decades according to your knowledge.

Influences in Earth History

  • Assisted with the education of several prophets of truth throughout Earth history.
  • Protection of Earth from interstellar aggression.
  • Deported from Earth and imprisoned the Giza Intelligences (also known as The Bafath) in 1978.
  • Decreased the orbital period of the “Destroyer” from 575.5 to 1180 years in the 20th century. Then later on redirected it so that it will never again threaten the Earth.
  • Prevented testing of a new weapon of mass destruction that would have destroyed the Earth within a few seconds in the 20th century.
  • Established and conducting the Peace Meditation since 1983 which has helped end some political confusion, end dictatorships and avert WW3.[5]
