University of Texas Scientist Advocates Destroying 90% of World’s Population

Apparently, Dr. Eric Pianka of the University of Texas advocated a plan to save the world’s environment by killing 90% of the population at the 2006 Texas Academy of Science Meeting. The Ebola virus was his method of choice. You can read about it on the Free Republic from first-hand witness, Forrest Mimms III, who has been screaming about this all over talk-radio and the internet.
I hesitate to get too worked up over this story because the evidence that the actual remarks made is thin, seeing how it is based on Mr. Mimms’ evidence alone. However, one can imagine it. It makes me think of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1948 thriller, The Rope. I hope that Dr. Pianka doesn’t have any students crazy enough to actualize his theories!
