CONSENSUS WATCH - 4/9/2009

An ongoing series dedicated to vigorously monitoring emerging threats to The Consensus that global warming is real, caused by humans, and must be addressed immediately. Because without consensus, scientific conclusions would remain vulnerable to new data.

Now that the Bush administration is out of office, we can finally stop worrying that the politicization of science will result in partisan policy imperatives driving decisions on combating global warming.  From now on, such issues will be dealt with based only on verifiable, clear-headed science.

Such as serious discussions of shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun’s rays and creating artificial carbon dioxide-eating trees!

“It’s got to be looked at,” President Obama’s new science advisor, John Holdren, warned.  "We don't have the luxury of taking any approach off the table."

Before you question Holdren’s credentials, we should point out that he has had a long and distinguished career, spending his early years being wrong about things and then going on to do important work in the fields of depopulating the earth of excess human beings and de-developing industrialized nations to help those less developed (since it is well understood that impoverished people value empathy over the far more pedestrian needs of food and shelter).

Of course, he’s explored more conventional avenues of scientific inquiry too, such as forced sterilizations, not to mention his groundbreaking work in discovering that “people are the bane of a rational energy policy."

As Holdren himself pointed out in a recent interview, by appointing him, President Obama “has put real scientists in positions of real influence.”

(What makes a person a “real” scientist?  A real scientist dismisses any criticism of his work as “dangerous.” How else can you tell if his science is sound?)

“The scientists are at the table,” Holdren continues. “We have access to the president. We have access to the national security adviser. We have access to the Treasury.”

What might we expect in the future from a Malthusian with a God complex that has access to the President, National Security Adviser, and the Treasury?
