Alarmist quotes on AGW and sustainability

“The battle to feed humanity is over. In the 1970s, the world will undergo famines. Hundreds of millions of people are going to starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now. Population control is the only answer.” – Paul Ehrlich, 1968

“I would take even money that England will not exist in the year 2000.” – Paul Ehrlich, 1969

“Smog disasters in 1973 might kill 200,000 people in New York and Los Angeles” – Paul Ehrlich, 1969

“Falling temperatures will cause the ice caps to sink into the ocean, producing a global tidal wave that could wipe out a substantial portion of mankind, and the sea level could rise 60 to 100 feet.” – Paul Ehrlich, 1970

“Before 1985, mankind will enter a genuine age of scarcity … in which the accessible supplies of many key minerals will be facing depletion.” – Paul Ehrlich, 1976

“Giving society cheap, abundant energy … would be the equivalent of giving an idiot child a machine gun.” – Paul Ehrlich, 1978

“The Population of the U.S. will shrink from 250 million to about 22.5 million before 1999 because of famine and global warming.” – Paul Ehrlich

“We’ve already had too much economic growth in the United States. Economic growth in rich countries like ours is the disease, not the cure.” – Paul Ehrlich

“I got the impression that instead of going out to shoot birds, I should go out and shoot the kids who shoot birds.” – Paul Watson, 1982

“We have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we might have.” – Stephen Schneider, 1989

“To feed a starving child is to exacerbate the world overpopulation problem.” – Lamont Cole, 1993

“Climatologists will criticize the faulty science on which the film [The Day After Tomorrow] is based…” – Nature, 2004

“We have 25 or so years invested in the work. Why should I make the data available to you, when your aim is to try and find something wrong with it?” – Phil Jones, developer of the UN’s IPCC temperature history, 2005

“I agree the 11C figure was unreasonably hyped. It’s a difficult line for all scientists to tread, as we need something ‘exciting’ to have any chance of publishing… to justify our funding,” – Scientist to the BBC, 2006

“Every time someone dies as a result of floods in Bangladesh, an airline executive should be dragged out of his office and drowned.” – George Monbiot, The Guardian, UK, 2006

“Some of this noise won’t stop until some of these scientists are dead” – James Hansen, 2006

“I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it [global warming] is…” – Al Gore, 2006

“The debate on global warming is over.” – Al Gore, 2006

“Let’s just say that global warming deniers are now on a par with Holocaust deniers” – Ellen Goodman, Boston Globe, 2007

“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times… and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK. That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen.” – Barrack Hussein Obama, 2008

“The peer review process assumes honesty and so was not designed to spot fraud” – Nature

“…all of our models have errors which mean that they will inevitably fail to track reality within a few days irrespective of how well they are initialized.” – James Annan, William Connolley,, 2005

“These codes are what they are – the result of 30 years and more effort by dozens of different scientists (note, not professional software engineers), around a dozen different software platforms and a transition from punch-cards of Fortran 66, to fortran 95 on massively parallel systems.” – Gavin Schmidt,, 2006

“No complex code can ever be proven ‘true’ (let alone demonstrated to be bug free). Thus publications reporting GCM results can only be suggestive.” – Gavin Schmidt,, 2006

“…there is so much unforced variability in the system which we can’t predict — the chaotic component of the climate system — which is not predictable beyond two weeks, even theoretically.” – Gavin Schmidt,, 2009

“Human society cannot basically stop the destruction of the environment under capitalism. Socialism is the only structure that makes it possible.” – Gus Hall, National chairman of the Communist Party USA, 1972

“The Communist Party USA’s environmental program “presents a viable plan to carry out on the long march to socialism.” – Havel Wolf, Seattle Audubon Society, 1998

“The answer to global warming is in the abolition of private property and production for human need. A socialist world would place an enormous priority on alternative energy sources. This is what ecologically-minded socialists have been exploring for quite some time now.” – Louis Proyect, Columbia University, 2004
