CNN utilized doomsayer Paul Ehrlich to bolster a sensational report from the United Nations that said humanity was ruining the planet. Reporter Nick Watt scolded: “The human population has doubled in just 50 years, our agriculture consumes more and more land, natural habitats are shrinking, we continue to pollute, the climate continues to warm, and natural ecosystems crumble at an accelerating rate.”

His expert, Ehrlich, sarcastically said the report should only concern you if you care about eating, drinking and breathing: “The other organisms of the planet are our life support systems. You don’t have to worry about them if you don’t care about eating, if you don’t care about breathing, if you don’t care about having fresh water and so on. Then you can just forget about it and die.”
