"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Science "Czar" Holdren on the Defensive

Check out this post by Michelle Malkin.

Apparently vaunted science guru, global warming alarmist, and White House science czar John Holdren is purportedly disavowing the book Ecoscience (in which forced abortions, forced adoptions, forced human sterilization, and a global regime were all advocated) authored by himself and -- what were their names again?-- oh, right Paul R. and Anne H. Ehrlich. It's too bad that people weren't so quick to forget the Ehrlichs' names back in the 70s and early 80s when their apocalyptic work was required reading in colleges and universities.

This has been a quiet disavowal, and one that he apparently won't confirm based on Michelle Malkin's purported experience with OSTP (Office of Science and Technology Policy-- the "science czar's" office) employee Rick Weiss.

And apparently Holdren's never heard of his mentor (a eugenics advocate and fellow apocalyptic science alarmist) Harrison Brown. You may have heard of Harrison Brown recently-- he's the fellow who infamously likened the human population to a "pulsating mass of maggots." There's more on Brown in Malkin's post. Be sure to read it and the links she provides.

Perhaps clarity and transparency are called for here. Maybe we should all ask Holdren to clarify his position on world population, eugenics, his views of Harrison Brown, and forced sterilization, abortion, and adoption.

I think we should follow Malkin's suggestion and contact the science czar. This is an important issue, and not something merely to pester the Obama administration about. An elitist who hold the view that certain other people are ill-defined "undesirables," and publicly proclaims that he holds human life in low esteem, should not be advising the country on the issues of science and technology.
