John Holdren is in the news for his latest attempt to rebrand "Climate Change" (formerly "Global Warming") as "Climate Disruption." Interesting editorials about this effort can be found many places, such as here and here.
But what I'm more interested in talking about is John Holdren himself. Just who is he? What sort of man does President Obama have advising him on scientific issues?
The answer to those questions is actually quite frightening. John Holdren is a dangerous left-wing extremist, an ideologue who has expressed open support for forced abortions and mass sterilization programs.
This deranged madman has also written of his support for policies that would have the state forcibly take children away from single mothers, as well as the creation of a totalitarian "Planetary Regime" (his term) that would be put in control of the global economy. Again, it's important to emphasize that this isn't just some random tenured radical; this man is a Senior Advisor to the President of the United States.
As the Obama regime grows increasingly autocratic, unelected and unaccountable "czars" like John Holdren will inevitably begin to wield more power and influence. It may be a good time to stockpile some sterilant-free nonperishables.
