Paul Watson


Population control

“We need to radically and intelligently reduce human population to fewer than one billion. We need to eliminate nationalism and tribalism and become Earthlings. And as Earthlings, we need to recognize that all the other species that live on this planet are also fellow citizens and also Earthlings. This is a planet of incredible diversity of life-forms; it is not a planet of one species as many of us believe.”

Earthworms are more important than People

“Last week, a reporter called to ask me if I had really said that earth worms are more important than people. I answered that, yes, I had. He then asked how I could justify such a statement. ‘Simple,’ I answered. ‘Earthworms can live on the planet without people. We cannot live on the planet without earthworms, thus from an ecological point of view, earthworms are more important than people.’ ”
