US: It’s That Man Again!

…Ehrlich did not learn his lesson: He is one of the scientists behind a statement titled, “Scientific Consensus on Maintaining Humanity’s Life Support Systems in the 21st Century,” which was recently released by the Millennium Alliance for Humanity and the Biosphere (MAHB) — a working group of natural and social scientists at Stanford University.

The report argues that “the evidence that humans are damaging their ecological life-support systems is overwhelming” and that “human quality of life will suffer substantial degradation by the year 2050 if we continue on our current course.” It lists five areas the scientists are “sounding [the] alarm” over: “Climate disruption”; “Extinctions”; the “Wholesale loss of diverse ecosystems”; “Pollution”; and “Human population growth and consumption patterns.” Let us look at some of the contradictory evidence for each of these areas, in turn.
