Obama’s Science Czar and the Planetary Regime

“[T]he truth is that promoting science isn’t just about providing resources — it’s about protecting free and open inquiry. It’s about ensuring that facts and evidence are never twisted or obscured by politics or ideology.”   — President Barack Obama, when announcing the appointment of John P. Holdren as ‘science czar’

obama with arm outstretched to crowdNo, the above quote was not from the Bizarro-Obama from an alternate Earth (as far as I know). But, based on his actions & policies, it could have been.

The current crop of GOP primary candidates are having their beliefs & positions on certain scientific issues examined. So, I thought it appropriate to look at the beliefs of the assistant to the president for Science and Technology, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, and co-chair of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST). In other words, Obama’s unelected, unvetted, unaccountable “Science Czar”. I will be excerpting heavily from Pamela Geller’s book The Post-American Presidency.

First, Holdren is an uber-Leftie professor from Harvard (educated at M.I.T. & Stanford) who strongly believes in the need for a one-world government, redistribution of wealth, and a tightly-reined citizenry. He participated in the pro-communist Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs. In 1977, along with co-authors Paul & Anne Ehrlich, Holdren published the neo-Malthusian book Ecoscience: Population, Resources, and Environment. (Note: From what I understand, the Ehrlichs have been wrong on pretty much every prediction they’ve ever made re populations, natural resources, economics, etc.)

As firm advocates of “population limitation and redistribution of wealth,” the authors recommend that “overdeveloped” countries first be “de-developed”. In fact, they think it “not only justified but essential” that the United States and other First World nations divert at least 20 percent of their respective GDP — i.e., their “excess” productivity — towards “helping the poorer people of the world rather than exploiting them.” They also like the idea of a “formal mechanism” to ensure “considerably more equitable distribution of wealth and income” within America.

Yeah. No wonder the Obamessiah likes this Holdren guy.

John Holdren turns from mic“Holdren and his coauthors also came out for government controls on population growth — controls so strict that they might have made the most committed Maoist blush. ‘There exists ample authority,’ they asserted, ‘under which population growth could be regulated.’ They even claimed that ‘compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.’ And they recommended that the United Nations step in to enforce such laws if American authorities failed to do so.”

Hmm. Maybe we shouldn’t be surprised at V.P. Biden’s recent “noodle diplomacy” remarks in China. Sounds like he’s right on the same page as Obama and Holdren.

Wait. It gets bett… uh, worse:

“The Ehrlichs and Holdren advocated more than just a role for the UN in internal U.S. affairs. They called for the establishment of a ‘comprehensive Planetary Regime’ that would essentially control everything: it would ‘control the development, administration, conservation, and distribution of all natural resources, renewable or nonrenewable… not only in the atmosphere and oceans, but in such freshwater bodies as rivers and lakes.’ It would also ‘be a logical central agency for regulating all international trade’ and would be ‘given responsibility for determining the optimum population for the world and for each region and for arbitrating various countries’ shares within their regional limits… the Regime would have some power to enforce the agreed limits.’ They would enforce these limits by means of a global police force: ‘Security might be provided by an armed international organization, a global analogue of a police force…. The first step necessarily involves partial surrender of sovereignty to an international organization.'”

jackbooted troopsWhen he accepted his Nobel Prize in 1995 (along with Joseph Rotblat, founder of the Pugwash Conferences), Holdren reconfirmed his views, saying, “The post-Cold War world needs a more powerful United Nations, probably with a standing volunteer force — owing loyalty directly to the UN rather than to contingents from individual nations.” (Gotta admit, this totally makes sense from a global-government point of view.)

“Global warming offered him an opportunity to reaffirm his commitment to internationalism and the destruction of American sovereignty. In response to climate change, he recommended in February 2007 that the UN establish a ‘global framework’ for enforcement of various restrictions, including a global emissions tax: ‘a requirement for the early establishment of a substantial price on carbon emissions in all countries, whether by a carbon tax or a tradable permit approach.'”

John P. Holdren is a Kool-Aid drinking “true believer” in, well, a lot of scary crap. And some people are more concerned that Rick Perry thinks there are unexplained gaps in Darwinian evolutionary theory….
