Having learned President Obama appointed him as Science Czar, I went to a research library that had several of Holdren’s writings, including the book Ecoscience, which he co-authored with population-control extremists (and frequent co-authors) Paul and Anne Ehrlich. My article reviewed numerous areas of Holdren’s radicalism—none more striking than his belief that a world government should determine the proper population of each region and enforce that level by any means necessary.
He offered that “a comprehensive Planetary Regime could control the development, administration, conservation, and distribution of all natural resources … 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 … The Regime would have some power to enforce the agreed limits.”
Holdren, et al, believe this global body possesses “ample authority under which population growth could be regulated.” Hiding behind the passive voice, they wrote, “it has been concluded”—by whom?—”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.) They added that if parents were guilty of “overproducing children, and if the need is compelling, they can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility.”
To further reduce the West’s population and carbon footprint, the “de-development of overdeveloped countries…should be given top priority.”
