Few Believe in 'Population Prophet'

April 15, 1990

Congratulations to The Times for running such an incisive, informative article on Paul Ehrlich and his new book, "The Population Explosion." Thanks to The Times, we know Ehrlich is one of the most dangerous men in America.

Ehrlich is a social engineer. His efforts to "reprogram consciousness," to prescribe "politically correct" responses to people who have large families, and to decry affluent people whose "children take a greater toll on the environment than children of poor parents" smack of the old Stalinist totalitarian nightmares Orwell described so pungently.

Ehrlich's theories were discredited years ago by the scientific community, as well as the concept of "global warming" he stridently harps on. He is the Trofim Lysenko of our time. Stanford University should be ashamed to have him on its faculty.

Garry Abrams deserves praise for his even-handed treatment.
