Science czar says trees should be able to sue and born babies are not human beings

Here’s the story from CNSNews. (H/T Secondhand Smoke via ECM)


The idea has been endorsed by John P. Holdren, the man who now advises President Barack Obama on science and technology issues. Giving “natural objects” — like trees — standing to sue in a court of law would have a “most salubrious” effect on the environment, Holdren wrote the 1970s. “One change in (legal) notions that would have a most salubrious effect on the quality of the environment has been proposed by law professor Christopher D. Stone in his celebrated monograph, ‘Should Trees Have Standing?’” Holdren said in a 1977 book that he co-wrote with Paul R. Ehrlich and Anne H. Ehrlich. “In that tightly reasoned essay, Stone points out the obvious advantages of giving natural objects standing, just as such inanimate objects as corporations, trusts, and ships are now held to have legal rights and duties,” Holdren added.

And also:

“The fetus, given the opportunity to develop properly before birth, and given the essential early socializing experiences and sufficient nourishing food during the crucial early years after birth, will ultimately develop into a human being,” John P. Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, wrote in “Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions.”

I wonder which of Obama’s advisers is the most insane?

From the Secondhand Smoke article:

Just when you thought that the high advisers to President Obama couldn’t get any more radical. Consider: Cass Sunstein, his nominated regulations czar, wants animals to be able to sue their owners and has asserted that the lives of elderly people should be given less value in government regulatory cost/benefit determinations.  Ezekiel Emanuel, a high health care adviser, wants to ration health care based on quality of life (and perhaps against the elderly) and has asserted we all have a moral obligation to be experimented on.

I wrote before about how environmentalists banned DDT in Africa, causing 25-50 million innocent deaths. And I also profiled the murderous views of leading environmentalists, including the radical views of Obama’s pick for Science Czar. And don’t forget – they kill 1 million unborn babies per year in the USA alone – 50 million since abortion was legalized in 1973.

Secularism is not a nice worldview.

  1. I just posted a quote from Holdren’s mentor : Harrison Brown on my blog – check it out. Also- Have you seen the film: Maafa21? It is a MUST SEE if you are interested in Modern Eugenics Ideology.


  2. I just saw this because of the link from your latest post. Oh my hat! These people are insane! Why does nobody find out about the policies of politicians?? It’s all decided on the warm fuzzies. Here’s the thinking: Obama says “yes we can” and that’s nice and positive, so let’s vote for him. Obama won because he is good at motivational speaking. Please, Americans, vote for someone with common sense policies who will hire people with common sense policies. These things affect the rest of the world too because the rest of the world often takes its cue from America and American politicians who are given influence go around trying to influence other countries.


    1. I read about his voting record and also “The Case Against Barack Obama”. I used to chase my mother around the house reading his voting record on crime and abortion to her. (We are colored, so there was a tendency to want to vote for Obama just based on skin color in our family – even though we are conservative). Until people stop voting for charismatic speeches and instead demand to see voting records and sponsored legislation of the candidates, we are going to keep getting into these messes with incompetent leaders.


      1. Indeed. Obama is regarded as a hero here. I read Robert P. George on Obama’s abortion extremism ( and was horrified. I emailed the article to some friends and they got upset with me. They couldn’t refute the facts, but they didn’t like what they heard so they accused me of “hating” him.

        Incidentally, Robert P. George is super.
