John Holdren, the President’s Science Czar has an unusual explanation for why there is no cap and trade legislation coming from congress. It has nothing to do with the fact that the latest research casts grave doubt over the Global Warming theory, nor does it have anything to do with the fact that now many believers in global warming say that man has very little to do with the trend, nope like most progressives, Holdren believes that he is right and everyone else is wrong. Therefore there is a need to Educate the naysayers about global warming. Obviously because they have had open minds they are too stupid to get it without “reprogramming.”
President Obama’s top science adviser said there’s a need to “educate” GOP climate change skeptics on Capitol Hill as the White House seeks to advance its green energy agenda.
“It is an education problem. I think we have to educate them,” said John Holdren, who heads the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, in an interview broadcast Sunday.

But the effort comes as a substantial number of GOP lawmakers, such as House Science, Space and Technology Committee Chairman Ralph Hall (R-Texas), are questioning climate science.
Holdren, asked about advancing Obama’s agenda in the face of skepticism, said the scientific evidence of dangerous human-induced climate change is powerful. “The science of climate change is really very clear in its essentials,” Holdren said on Platts Energy Week.
He said there is uncertainty about details, but noted that’s always the case in science. What’s plain, Holdren said, is that the climate is changing in damaging ways and that human activities – notably burning fossil fuels – are “overwhelmingly likely” to be the primary cause.
“Those points are clear in the science, and we need to talk with the members of Congress who aren’t yet convinced of that to try and convince them,” Holdren said.
Is the science clear? Well then how come at least 40% of scientists reject man made global warming? How about the fact that Ice Core Samples Prove 9,099 Out Of Past 10,500 Years Warmer Than 2010? Or that the original research to prove global warming has been proved bogus and so on and so forth. This global warming “consensus” has had so many holes poked into it that it wouldn’t pass as Swiss Cheese, but that won’t stop the Science Czar:
“We need better energy technology both to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, to improve the environment, including reducing our contribution to climate change, and to create the jobs in clean energy, the new products, the new businesses that will stay in America, while meeting our growing energy needs,” Holdren said.
He later added: “The president realizes that we need all the new energy sources we can get. We need energy sources that reduce our contribution to production of greenhouse gases that are altering the climate, we need those new energy sources to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and we need them to stay competitive in a global market.”
But that is not the reason the Science Czar wants cap and trade, Holdren is a globalist who endorses surrender of US sovereignty” to a comprehensive Planetary Regime that would control all the world’s resources, direct global redistribution of wealth, oversee the “de-development” of the West, control a World Army and taxation regime, and enforce world population limits.
He has castigated the United States as “the meanest of wealthy countries,” advocated drastically lowering the U.S. standard of living, and left the door open to trying global warming “deniers” for crimes against humanity (uh-oh, guess I’m in trouble). With John Holdren influencing administration policy, the entire country is in trouble.
