The prophet of doom was Stanford entomologist Paul Ehrlich, who had an epiphany in the summer of 1966, when he visited with his wife the crowded streets of Delhi during a research trip to study butterflies. During that visit, Ehrlich came to for- mulate a very persuasive argument: “the underdeveloped countries of the world face an inevitable population-food crisis [as] each year food production in these countries falls a bit further behind burgeoning population growth” (Ehrlich 3).

I will argue that we can understand current biopolitics better if we start from a more complex analysis of articulation between totalizing demo- graphic and individualizing medicalizing

everywhere of still-rocketing population growth combined with consumption of natural resources, the thinning of the ozone layer, global warming, the collapse of marine fisheries, and, less directly through foreign trade, the decimation of tropical forests and mass extinction of the species. She would regret, I am sure, the sorry example the United States sets with its enormous per capita appropriation of productive land around the world for its consumption—ten times that of developing countries.
