From Moonbattery via Hot Air:
Barack Hussein Obama has clotted the executive branch with unaccountable “czars” — unsavory characters too extreme to be confirmed for cabinet positions even by a hyper-partisan Democrat-controlled Senate. Among the most alarming of these malevolent lunatics is Science Czar John Holdren, a participant in ClimateGate who has advocated de-developing America and putting sterilants in the public water supply. Holdren has also spoken in favor of forced abortions, confiscation of babies, targeted as well as mass involuntary sterilization, bureaucratic regulation of family size, and global authoritarian government. If there is a line between ultra-left ideologue and evil maniac, Holdren clearly crosses it. No one to the right of Pol Pot would want John Holdren advising our leaders.Here is the excerpt from the memo involving Romney's people consulting Hodren:
In the development of greenhouse gas policy, Romney Administration officials have elicited input from environmental and economic policy experts. These include John Holden [sic], professor of environmental policy at Harvard University…Remember, Holdren co-authored Ecoscience in 1977. Here are a couple of quotes attributed to him via Zombietime:
Indeed, it has been concluded 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.That one doesn't do Romney any favors when it comes to his newfound pro-life stance. How about this one about one world government?
The Planetary Regime might 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. Control of population size might remain the responsibility of each government, but the Regime would have some power to enforce the agreed limits.Either Romney's people were so inept that Holdren wasn't vetted or camp Romney has a hidden agenda that conservative voters should find repulsive. Either way, this man does NOT deserve the nomination.
Here is the entire memo:
Romney Announces Strict New Clean Air Regulations to Take Effect January 1
And of course, here is Romney back in June of this year saying that he believes in man-made global warming:
