I JUST HOPE THAT THIS GUY never gets hold of nuclear or biological weapons:
Paul Watson, founder and president of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and famous for militant intervention to stop whalers, now warns mankind is â€œacting like a virusâ€ and is harming Mother Earth.
Watsonâ€™s May 4 editorial asked the question â€œThe Beginning of the End for Life as We Know it on Planet Earth?â€ Then he left no doubt about the answer. â€œWe are killing our host the planet Earth,â€ he claimed and called for a population drop to less than 1 billion.
The commentary reminded readers that Watson had called humans a disease before and he wasnâ€™t sorry. â€œI was once severely criticized for describing human beings as being the â€˜AIDS of the Earth.â€™ I make no apologies for that statement,â€ the column continued.
No, really, I mean that. Guys like him creep me out. If he ever got his way it would be Pol Pot all over again.
I mean, next they’ll be calling people who have large families “Eco-Criminals” or something. Oh, wait. . . .
Given that we’re undergoing a global baby bust, this is not only nutty and totalitarian, but out of date and stupid even on its own merits.
