Why do we need a Science Czar in the first place!?
President Obama's Science Adviser John Holdren's shocking and utterly socialistic global views are coming to light; Holdren espouses compulsory abortions for women, favoring a two-child limit, surrendering U.S. sovereignty to world government, and forced poverty for American workers to advance the green agenda, among other things. Holdren's radical views were first exposed in February in an expose published by FrontPageMag.com.
Holdren's curriculum vitae is enough to give any one a clear picture about his political leanings. A professor at UC Berkeley, he had a chair created specifically for him at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government in order that his ideology could influence young policymakers. The chair was endowed by Teresa and John Heinz, a.k.a. Teresa Kerry. He also served on the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation's Board of Trustees, and joined the Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs. Pugwash participants are individuals, mostly academics and policy-making hopefuls seeking "solutions" for "global problems," including arms controls, and has seen its share of liberals, socialists and communists over the years. It is sponsored in part by the Rockefellers.
Holdren has an early association with the anti-human secularist Malthusians, Paul and Anne Ehrlich. All three collaborated on a book in 1977 entitled Ecoscience, where the real nuts and bolts of Holden's philosophy is to be found.
Labeling themselves neo-Malthusians, Holden and the Ehrlichs promote compulsory population-control laws as being "sustained under the existing constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society." Like the global warming extremist alarmists, they would look for such a crisis or create one in order to advance their reproductive hatred: "If some individuals contribute to general social deterioration by overproducing children, and if the need is compelling, they can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility."
Knowing full well that the U.S. Constitution carries no such prohibition on population numbers, they don't hesitate to justify their agenda with a bit of convoluted manipulation:
The law regulates other highly personal matters. For example, no one may lawfully have more than one spouse at a time. Why should the law not be able to prevent a person from having more than two children? The legal argument has been made that the First Amendment provision for the separation of church and state prevents the United States government from regulating family size. The notion is that family size is God's affair and no business of the state [how quaint! -- J.H.]. But the same argument has been made against the taxation of church property, prohibition on polygamy, compulsory education and medical treatment for children, and many similar measures that have been enacted.
Holdren's sophistry doesn't stop there. He goes on with his argument that because human life has no inherent value, there's no reason why it should be protected, and he actually equates a human being with individual fat cells while ruling out, contrary to all modern-day documentation, that a fetus IS a pre-born child:
The real question from a legal, as well as from religious, moral, and ethical points of view, is as follows: in what forms, at what stages, and for what purposes should society protect human life? Obviously overweight people regard their fat cells different from their brain cells. A wandering sperm cell is not the same thing as a fertilized egg; nor is a fetus a child. Yet a fat cell, a sperm cell, a fetus, an adult, and even a group of people are all human life.
(http://zombietime.com/john_holdren has more quotes from the book about mass sterilization and involuntary fertility control for those with stronger hearts.)
The lack of humanity Holdren exhibits shows up in other areas, equally devoid of logical thinking. Totally ignoring factual evidence to the contrary, he was quoted last January as saying the United States is "the stingiest among all" wealthy nations, which in his thinking makes the U.S. "the meanest of wealthy countries."
Therefore, he is happy to contribute to America's impoverishment by working to restructure the economy particularly in the area of reducing greenhouse gas emissions with the full understanding that energy costs under cap and trade policies would crush the economy. Holdren admits that if alternative energy sources were to become commonly used, then they "would have to get a great deal cheaper, which seems unlikely, or natural gas would have to get considerably more expensive. The latter is actually a good idea."
In the past, Holdren made fantastical predictions in his personal field of speciality; environmental science. In 1986 he spouted that carbon dioxide-induced famines could kill "as many as a billion people before the year 2020." Only two years ago he wrote there would be a 13-foot rise in sea levels. Some expert. But what can we expect of an adviser for Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth?
But back to Ecoscience where Holdren's truly socialistic side can be seen. Urging the United Nations to mandate a requirement for substantial prices on carbon emissions in all countries in order that redistribution of wealth may be accomplished, he stated in the book that a program must be initiated that would be, "A means for transferring some of the revenue produced by carbon taxes upon, or permits purchased by, countries and consumers with high incomes and high per capita emissions to countries and consumers with low incomes and low per capita emissions."
A loyal United Nations fan with no apparent feelings for his native land, Holdren also advocates a "Planetary Regime" that would control "the development, administration, conservation, and distribution of all natural resources... not only in the atmosphere and oceans, but in such freshwater bodies as rivers and lakes." This same Planetary Regime would also be charged with taxing the world population and determining population numbers for the world and each region therein. Along with that his World Army would police the entire planet and enforce his globalist world view, but the first step toward this "necessarily involves partial surrender of sovereignty to an international organization," reads the text on page 917 of the book.
Thus is the man who was personally chosen by the president, has the ear of the present president, answers only to that president, and advocates for what used to be considered a traitorous agenda.
