The very same day TAS declared its stance, Kathy Walt, press secretary for Gov. Rick Perry, expressed disdain over what Pianka calls his “doomsday talk.” Walt called the scientist’s viewpoints “abhorrent” and likened them to Hitler’s “hate-filled Third Reich.”

While some have described Pianka’s words as hyperbole, the governor’s office’s distaste was plainspoken.

“Professor Pianka’s gleeful embracing of the destruction of 90 percent of the earth’s population as a necessary and worthy event is abhorrent, as is his notion that human life holds no more value than that of a lizard, bison or rhinoceros,” Walt said.

    Walt errs. Even a cursory reading of Pianka’s views shows human life of less value than lizards, bison, or rhinos. Or, for that matter, ants, gnats, and houseflies.
