Obama climate plan being shaped by John ‘Compulsory Abortion is Constitutional’ Holdren

Well… when you get down to it, in the enviro mind, people are the problem.

Reuters reports:

Clues about what to expect in a White House package of climate measures expected within weeks might be found in a report given to the president in March by a blue-chip team of scientists and business leaders.

The President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST), led by President Barack Obama’s chief science adviser John Holdren, listed six major components that should be central to the administration’s second-term climate change strategy.

The document outlined a mix of measures that different federal agencies could take on, such as power plant emissions standards by the Environmental Protection Agency and more research and development for carbon capture by the Department of Energy.

“We gave him a series of suggestions. It is his internal team – led by Holdren – that is looking at those and other ideas as they develop the strategy,” said PCAST member Daniel Schrag, director of the Harvard University Center for the Environment…

As reported by FrontPageMag in 2009:

[Holdren and the Ehrlichs] prescribed a rigidly enforced, government-imposed limit of two children per family. Holdren and the Ehrlichs maintained “there exists ample authority under which population growth could be regulated.” Hiding behind the passive voice, they note, “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.” (Emphasis added.) To underscore they mean business, they conclude, “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” (pp. 837-838). Moreover, if the United States government refuses to take proper measures, they authorize the United Nations to take compelling force.

  1. The problem with the Liberal/Progressive ideology is that the imagined ‘greater good’ develops an existence of its own, and surpasses human values in importance. This is an unforseen (but totally foreseeable) consequence of Situational Ethics, which holds that the End Justifies the means. Thus the most inhumane of acts are justified in the name of humanity through some arcane rationalization that dehumanizes the people adversely affected by acts done in the name of the greater good.
    Just as a chain cannot be stronger than its weakest link, no course of action can be any more righteous than the most evil of the acts taken along the course.
    The devaluing of the rights of others is homicide – one centimeter at a time. We are dying the Death of a Thousand Cuts.

  2. “The end justifies the means.” However those “means” will eventually destroy the desired “end”

  3. This is exactly Obama’s kind of thinking, though, so this is what I’d expect him to listen to. His appointments have nearly all been the kind of people, if not the exact people, you’d expect a flaming-liberal-hater-of-America to come up with. I’m just surprised Bill Ayers hasn’t gotten Secretary of Education.
    If I wanted to be disgusting, I’d say Gosnell had been short-listed for Surgeon General, but I would not be disgusting.
