Jokes Poke Fun at Pianka, Unfortunately Pianka is Serious

Many jokes have circulated concerning Dr. Eric Pianka's recent speech and his well-known "doomsday talk" about destroying 90% of the world's population by use of the ebola virus. While these comics find their humor in the ridiculousness of Pianka's suggestions, we should be concerned that Pianka, despite making such outrageous claims, received the 2006 Distinguished Texas Scientist Award. Two of the comics poking fun at Pianka are posted below, view them and laugh, but then think about how twisted Pianka's mind might be to be serious about his suggestion and how grossly twisted the minds of the Texas Academy of Science must be to award him as a distinguised scientist.
