Apparently the professor who called for the elimination of 90% of the human race is coming out and defending himself now. He says the guy Mims is a rival of his who's out to get him. As more information begins to emerge it's looking more and more like Pianka may have just been describing reality and not advocating anything. This story is really confusing, Pianka is very slippery about where he actually stands. He may be a misanthrope and not a sociopath; which I think really ruins the intensity of this controversy.

Even Mims reported that everyone else at the speech was applauding all the supposedly crazy things Pianka was saying. That's what made it clear to me that Mims was either lying or off his rocker: if I have to chose between believing the entire Texas Academy of Science is insane, and just some guy who has a history of saying crazy things about people he doesn't like going at it again... I'll assume the latter until actual evidence arises.

Yeah... the more I look into this the more questions that emerge. One of the outlets that ran this story looked like a mainstream publication to me, but I'm starting to think no one should have trusted Mims.
