Interview with Robert Zubrin about his book Merchants of Despair: Radical Environmentalists, Criminal Pseudo-Scientists, and the Fatal Cult of Antihumanism. Zubrin describes the history of what he calls “antihumanism” – the belief that “human beings are pathogens whose activities need to be suppressed in order to protect a fixed ecological order with interests that stand above those of humanity.” Traces how Malthusianism led to sterilization campaigns, racism, and the environmental movement’s opposition to life-saving energy, pesticides, and genetically-modified organisms.
