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