Dear Steve, The article in Population Research institute Review on John Holdren in Vol. 19, No. 5, “President Obama’s Bizarre Science Czar” is incredible. He is stupid and in a sense evil. He is a real nut. I wish we could have all our students here read this type of article and write papers thereon. They should surely be aware of what is being written. So many lies are believed by students when written by …

Debunking the Myth … Again: Steve Mosher Debates Paul Erhlich On Australian TV



On November 5th, 2009, PRI president Steven Mosher appeared on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s (ABC) popular show, Lateline, hosted by Ticky Fullerton. He was there to defend human beings against a pair of famous fearmongers: Paul Ehrlich, author of The Population Bomb, and Sir Crispin Tickell of Britain’s Optimum Population Trust. Both of his opponents were insisting, as usual, that we are all about to die from overpopulation. Ehrlich went first, and proved to be …

For the Record



The Population Research Institute, a Catholic-based group questions how the Guttmacher Institute arrives at its statistics. Colin Mason, the media director finds it curious for example that Guttmacher would claim 250,000 illegal abortions in Colombia when according to Mason, the country’s Minister of Health says that just 50 women sought abortions after they became legal. “If there is such an unmet need and they are in a country like Columbia spreading the word about abortion,” …

President Obama’s Bizarre “Science Czar”: Dr. John P. Holdren, Professional Alarmist



President Obama’s top science advisor and I have something in common: We both have a long-term association with Paul Ehrlich, my former colleague at Stanford University. There any similarity ends, however. Holdren, who has co-authored hooks on population control with Ehrlich and his wife, is the Stanford professors ideological clone. For my part, I have long opposed the prescriptions of the infamous population bombster, and now find myself compelled to reject the almost identical views …

Obama’s Population Fundamentalist



John P. Holdren thinks babies will be the death of us all.   Normally, one man’s opinion would not matter terribly, but Mr. Holdren happens to be President Obama’s Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy; Assistant to the President for Science and Technology; and Co-Chair of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology.  Or, in short, as the president’s “Science Czar,”  Holdren is an official member of the …

July 30 — A Brave New America: How the Obama Health Care Bill Will Lead to Coercion at Both Ends of Life.



30 July 2009 — Vol. 12 / No. 22 A few weeks ago, President Obama demanded that a national health care bill be on his desk before Congress’s summer recess. Since then, frenetic attempts to ram the 1,000-page bill through Congress have all but collapsed, as more and more politicians on both sides of the aisle have balked. Obama has been forced to back off, even while reiterating that, without deadlines, “nothing gets done in …

Para leer este boletín en español, haga click aquí. 07 April 2009 — Vol. 11/No. 10 According to Nina Fedoroff, the United States’ Science and Technology Adviser, we should all be very, very afraid. Interviewed on the BBC’s One Planet radio program, Fedoroff came across as a population alarmist in the mold of Thomas Malthus or Paul Ehrlich. Already, she claimed “humans had exceeded the Earth’s ‘limits of sustainability’.” She insisted that “we need to …

Part 1. The White Pestilence



Note: The following is excerpted from Steven Mosher’s book, Population Control—Real Costs, Illusory Benefits. Most of us grew up on a poisonous diet of overpopulation propaganda. Remember the lifeboat scenarios in high school biology, where we had to decide who we were going to push overboard, lest we all die. Recall the college class in which we were assigned to read Paul Ehrlich’s The Population Bomb, which begins with the author mournfully intoning “The battle …
