30. You're right. It was election fraud.
Perhaps, and this is only a guess, Dr. Pianka surmised that the public isn't ready to hear about the potential for a devastating pandemic because he doesn't want his remarks to get the same sort of fear-mongering spin that led to the war in Iraq. But that's only a guess. Fear-mongering about population control is unnecessary and there are perfectly rational solutions to over-population, like birth control; safe, legal, voluntary abortion; and education.
