An excerpt from statements he allegedly made at the recent 109th annual meeting of the Texas Academy of Science, according to Forrest Mims III, who was in attendance (and I'm assuming that this isn't a joke, because it sure isn't funny):
"But there was a gravely disturbing side to that otherwise scientifically significant meeting, for I watched in amazement as a few hundred members of the Texas Academy of Science rose to their feet and gave a standing ovation to a speech that enthusiastically advocated the elimination of 90 percent of Earth's population by airborne Ebola. The speech was given by Dr. Eric R. Pianka (Fig. 1), the University of Texas evolutionary ecologist and lizard expert who the Academy named the 2006 Distinguished Texas Scientist."
You can read the entire article, in all its disturbing "glory", here.
Perhaps Dr. Pianka should spend a bit more time with his fellow humans, and a bit less time with the lizards. Better yet, why doesn't he ditch humanity altogether and spend a100% of his time with the lizards (he can be the new "Lizard King").
I'm just guessing that humanity won't miss him much. Given the views outlined in the article above, I know I wouldn't.
