This reminds me why David Cameron's dearest wish is that Ed Balls should continue as shadow chancellor until the next general election; he's an asset to the tories. Same with Ehrlich - an asset to sceptics - don't anybody stop him please!

I take it that is the Bish on the front row, incognito.

'Ehrlich' - the ultimate refutation of surname predestination?

Is there any evidence that the RS is shocked by or even aware of this man's ramblings?

And there we have it: the RS joins the current race to the bottom along with their travelling doom-sayers.

Well, I guess they could fall back on 'Nullius in Verba'.

How about 'Nullius Atwitter'?

Nullius in Verba*

*Terms and conditions apply. In the event of dispute, we determine on which side our bread is buttered, or which way the wind is blowing, or if these fail to make things clear, we just ask what would Gramsci have done?

He told people to start moving inland. From his office in Stanford (max elevation: 75ft).

Does the Royal Society believe that Ehrlich has a bigger megaphone than Nurse? Is here a rational reason for the choice?

Terrific one, Josh!

Ehrlich has always been well-liked by Malthusians.

To paraphrase Napolean Bonaparte, 'Never interrupt a fool when he's making public and very incorrect pronouncements'

This was a joke, right?

I love the Private Frazer eyes. "We're all doomed, doomed I tell you".

Good one Josh, but oi tips me 'at to The Shade!

Excellent. But in reality, I think the RS was cheering for the loon..

Many years ago (in the 60s) I read C Northcote Parkinson's books, he was one of the the first management consultants but they didn't call them that in those days. He introduced me to the concept of the "useful idiot", someone who is wrong ALL of the time. Parkinson's edict was to treasure him, not to fire him, and whatever the Ehrlich said, do the exact opposite.
