Sea Shepherd founder says mankind is a 'virus'

by road runner. / May 7, 2007 4:24 AM PDT

Apparently, saving the whales is more important than saving 5.5 billion people. Paul Watson, founder and president of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and famous for militant intervention to stop whalers, now warns mankind is ?acting like a virus? and is harming Mother Earth.

Watson?s May 4 editorial asked the question ?The Beginning of the End for Life as We Know it on Planet Earth?? Then he left no doubt about the answer. ?We are killing our host the planet Earth,? he claimed and called for a population drop to less than 1 billion.

The commentary reminded readers that Watson had called humans a disease before and he wasn?t sorry. ?I was once severely criticized for describing human beings as being the ?AIDS of the Earth.? I make no apologies for that statement,? the column continued

called for a population drop to less than 1 billion. Hey, I'm all for it. More for me!

One reason not to worry: "The problems are imaginary."

Another reason: "It's hopeless, anyway."

Star dies in monstrous explosion
Scientists say that the star which blew apart is similar to Eta Carinae, an enormous star in our own Milky Way, 7,500 light-years from Earth. ...
Dave Pooley, at the University of California at Berkeley, said if Eta Carinae were to explode "it would be so bright that you would see it during the day, and you could even read a book by its light at night".
