    We are entering a mass extinction that threatens humanity's existence, researchers have declared. Researchers say a new study shows 'without any significant doubt' that we are entering the sixth great mass extinction on earth. The study says that the window for conserving threatened species is rapidly closing. The study shows without any significant doubt that we are now entering the sixth great mass extinction event,' said Paul Ehrlich, the Bing Professor of Population Studies in biology and a senior fellow at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment who led the research.The new study, published in the journal Science Advances,...

    It is an obvious truth we too often forget. At the Albert Einstein Memorial, on the grounds of the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C., an explanatory sign states a simple fact that refutes the argument President Barack Obama's science adviser once made for redistributing wealth and limiting human population so as to save the human race from a poverty he claimed must inevitably intensify as our numbers increase. "At Einstein's feet lies a circular sky map representing the planets, sun, moon, and stars, positioned as observed by astronomers from the U.S. Naval Observatory at noon on the day...

    After making a small fortune out of being wrong over predictions of doom because of overpopulation, Stanford University Professor Paul Ehrlich is embracing the lunatic fringe of environmentalism, perhaps noting that Al Gore has made a large fortune out of another wacko doomsday cult. Sean Long of Newsbusters reports: 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.

    John P. Holdren, the White House science adviser to President Barack Obama, wrote in a book he co-authored with population control advocates Paul and Anne Ehrlich that “ways must be found to control advertising” and that possible means for doing so would be banning utility companies from promoting the use of energy and prohibiting “references to size, power or sexual potency” in automobile advertising. “Advertising now functions in large part to keep the economy growing by creating demand for a wide variety of often useless, dangerous or environmentally destructive products,” Holdren and the Ehrlichs wrote.

    Merchants of Despair: Radical Environmentalists, Criminal Pseudo-Scientists, and the Fatal Cult of Antihumanism, by Robert Zubrin (Encounter, 328 pp., $25.95) A ruling idea of the last two centuries has been materialism: the notion, as arch-materialist Daniel Dennett asserts, that “there is only one sort of stuff, namely matter—the physical stuff of physics, chemistry, and physiology—and the mind is somehow nothing but a physical phenomenon.” One consequence of this belief has been the rise of antihumanism—the stripping from people of their transcendent value and a reduction of them to mere things in the world to be studied, understood, reshaped—and ultimately...

    The United Nations has officially designated October 31st as 7 Billion Day. On that day, the United Nations estimates that the population of the earth will hit 7 billion for the very first time. But instead of celebrating what a milestone 7 billion people represents, the UNPF is focusing instead on using October 31st to raise awareness about "sustainability" and "sustainable development". In other words, the United Nations is once again declaring that there are way too many people on the planet and that we need to take more direct measures to reduce fertility. In recent years, the UN and...

    BALTIMORE -- The latest Gonzales Research & Marketing Strategies poll shows that Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley is currently ahead of former Republican Gov. Bob Ehrlich, but his lead has steadily dwindled. According to the poll that surveyed likely voters earlier this month, 47 percent said they would vote for O'Malley and 42 percent said they would support Ehrlich, while 6 percent were undecided. The poll also gave the governor a 48 percent approval rating. The last three polls found O'Malley's lead dwindling from 11 percent to 8 percent. Currently, the most recent Gonzales poll gives O'Malley a five-point advantage. The...

I think that Ehrlich made a tactical mistake by letting O'Malley go up on the air unanswered for several months in the Baltimore market and several weeks in the DC market. Hopefully, now that he is hitting O'Malley for covering up negative economic reports, things will begin to shift. - There were a few positive news items in Maryland this week.

    If anyone wants to know why we don't trust the wolves (government statists) to guard the hen house (our economic prosperity) look no farther than the O'Malley administration. Martin O'Malley has been campaigning all over the state and lying to everyone about a non-existent economic recovery in Maryland. As it turns out, O'Malley's Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation (DLLR) was hiding an internal report all along that showed that economic growth has "stalled." One young staffer mistakenly posted the report on the DLLR website, but was told to immediately remove it before people would discover the truth about O'Malley's...

Calamity resulting from too many of us has been the subject of countless prophecies, but those never came true. More humans are living on the planet now than ever and living better, rather than being starved and desperate.

    There has been much discussion among Maryland conservatives about the insurgent candidacy of Brian Murphy for Governor in general, and Sarah Palin's endorsement in particular. Some conservatives are outraged at what they view as an intrusion into a fragile political landscape by Palin. They view her endorsement of Murphy as an ill informed exercise that will do little to strengthen Murphy, while undermining our only realistic way of taking back the state. They assert that Bob Ehrlich will win the primary anyway, and all this endorsement accomplishes is the undermining and weakening of our Republican standard-bearer. Other conservatives, such as...

Ehrlich launched his candidacy Wednesday in Montgomery County, the state's largest jurisdiction and a key battleground as the home of nearly a quarter of the state's registered independent voters.

Ehrlich was elected governor of his state in 2002, becoming the first Republican to hold that office since Spiro Agnew. O'Malley ousted him in the 2006 elections by a six-point margin.

In nominating John Holdren, his words could scarcely have taken a more Orwellian ring. Some critics have noted Holdren's penchant for making apocalyptic predictions that never come to pass, and categorizing all criticism of his alarmist views as not only wrong but dangerous. What none has yet noted is that Holdren is a globalist who has endorsed...

    President Barack Obama talks about restoring economic growth. But his science adviser, John Holdren, once called for zero economic growth while writing with Paul and Anne Ehrlich--who predicted mass starvation in the 1970s. **** Admittedly, President Obama hasn't formally adopted this goal. But by putting the economy into hock and running up government borrowing, which even the Congressional Budget Office warns will crowd out private investment, the president seems determined to prevent a robust recovery. Maybe John Holdren will get his wish after all.

Holdren is a professor of environmental policy at Harvard and former president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. As Ron Bailey points out, he has been an activist on the ecological left and no friend of free markets. Perhaps more striking is his activism well beyond his own academic specialty, arguing, for instance, that scientists have a responsibility to advance the cause of the elimination of all nuclear weapons and seeking controls on population growth. And he didn’t say all this in the...

Minutes later, former Massachusetts Gov. Romney announced he would be ending his bid for the White House....

    Former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. has thrown his support behind state Sen. Andrew P. Harris' attempt to unseat a fellow Republican, Rep. Wayne T. Gilchrest, in the upcoming congressional races. Mr. Ehrlich's chief fundraiser, Richard E. Hug, has joined Mr. Harris' exploratory committee and cultivated donors for a Harris fundraiser last week in Baltimore that featured an appearance by Mr. Ehrlich. "Many of you know [Mr. Harris]. He is a tireless campaigner and has an excellent shot at winning this seat," Mr. Hug wrote to supporters in advance of the fundraiser. In addition, Mr. Harris is a frequent guest...

    Tonight, at the Huntingtown Vol. Fire Department, in Calvert County, Maryland, the Republican Women of Calvert County, sponsored a Lincoln Days Dinner with former Gov. Bob Ehrlich the keynote speaker. It was a very good speech as the former governor raised three points. One - what Republicans accomplished fm 2003-2007, in the dark blue state of Maryland. Two - not only what dems are doing in Maryland now, but what they are doing and planning to do in the U.S. Congress, and three - what we as Republicans need to do to overcome this loss and regain lost seats. Once...

    Here are some outrageous and racist comments by environmentalists. These are compiled and documented in my book Eco-Freaks: Environmentalism Is Hazardous to Your Health. John Muir, founder of the Sierra Club: Muir said American Indians are “mostly ugly, and some of them altogether hideous.” They “seemed to have no right place in the landscape,” he continued. Muir is still honored without qualification on the Sierra Club web site, which proclaims, “John Muir is as relevant today as he was over 100 years ago.” Paul Ehrlich, influential “overpopulation” guru and professor of population studies at Stanford University: In his best-selling book,...
  • Global Warming: The Population Bomb of the 21st Century?

    The Population Bomb The Population Bomb (1968) is a book written by Paul R. Ehrlich. A best-selling work, it predicted disaster for humanity due to overpopulation and the "population explosion". The book predicted that "in the 1970s and 1980s hundreds of millions of people will starve to death", that nothing can be done to avoid mass famine greater than any in the history, and radical action is needed to limit the overpopulation. The book is primarily a repetition of the Malthusian catastrophe argument, that population growth will outpace agricultural growth unless controlled. It assumes that the population is going to...

    ANNAPOLIS -- Perhaps former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s best excuse should be that he was too busy running Maryland to sit long enough for a painting, but Mr. Ehrlich's four-year term has ended and his official portrait still is not hanging inside the State House. Mr. Ehrlich has declined to say why he has no portrait to go with those of the state's 12 other most recent governors, hung in the second-floor reception room, a stately space in which governors hold press conferences and other events. Former staffer Paul E. Schurick said only that Mr. Ehrlich, the state's first...

    I am trying to figure out exactly what Ehrlich did wrong in MD to get thrown out by the voters. He balanced the budget taken over from Paris Spenddenning. Was not this election about fiscal spending. SO far all I can figure is that he was not a Dem is what the problem was. Anything else?

    ANNAPOLIS -- Maryland Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. yesterday disclosed that former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani and Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney have sought his input for their potential presidential campaigns, saying that his own re-election loss has not ended his career in Republican politics. Mr. Ehrlich, who was Maryland's first Republican governor in 36 years, also said he had not ruled out another run for state office, including a possible campaign in 2010 to replace Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski, a Democrat. "I would not eliminate that as an option," he said of a run to succeed Miss Mikulski,...

    Ehrlich in talks with prez hopefulsDefends record, says he'll stay near Annapolis By JEFF HORSEMAN, Staff Writer Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. yesterday said he's been in touch with 2008 Republican presidential hopefuls Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney, but he hasn't made any decision about what he'll do after he leaves office in January. Mr. Ehrlich also defended his four-year record as governor, saying he hoped Maryland Republicans would mount an "aggressive" challenge to what he described as a ultra-liberal Democratic monopoly in state government. Having lost to Democrat Martin O'Malley in November, Mr. Ehrlich, the state's first Republican governor...

    ANNAPOLIS -- Maryland Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. called for Republican unity yesterday at the state convention, where the selection of party chairman revealed divisions within the party after last month's widespread election defeats. "The hard left is in firm control of the state, and we don't have the votes to stop them," Mr. Ehrlich told party leaders in a ballroom at the Doubletree Hotel in Annapolis. "That's not the fate of Maryland in the long term. It's just where we are today." His remarks were more upbeat than those he made earlier in the day during his last appearance...

    More than 1 million residents of the Washington-Baltimore region already live close to heavily trafficked motorways where dangerous soot pollution is at levels that can trigger asthma attacks, heart attacks and respiratory disease. Building the $2.4 billion (and rising), 18-mile intercounty connector linking Interstate 270 to Interstate 95 through neighborhoods and near schools would worsen these health problems. Maryland Gov.-elect Martin O'Malley (D) reiterated his support for the road following his election last month, but if the public demands protection for our children and the elderly, he still could take steps to prevent these health hazards. The toxic pollution the...
