Michael Cook rates the world’s miserabilists, including a leading local Geothermian:
Tim Flannery, science’s answer to Stephen King, insists that the population Down Under (where I live) should contract from 20 million to an optimum level of six million to keep us from wreaking havoc upon the environment. He was named 2007 Australian of the Year, so his message seems to have struck a chord amongst the extra-skinny soy latté set, at least.
Flannery is beaten out in Cook’s list, however, by South African academic David Benatar, author of the brilliantly-titled Better Never to Have Been: The Harm of Coming into Existence.
