Several months ago John Holdren, President Obama’s chief science advisor, offered to answer the public’s questions, particularly about the science behind the administration’s call to make the vast majority of fossil fuel use illegal over the next several decades. From the Press Release:

Dr. John P. Holdren, Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, wants to answer any questions that you have about climate change — what it means, how bad it actually is, and what we can do to fight it.

I was glad to see this. John Holdren and other climate catastrophists—those who believe not in some man-made climate impact but catastrophic climate impact that justifies fossil fuel famine—certainly have a lot of questions they need to answer. As I document in The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels, they’ve been making breathtakingly bogus predictions of catastrophe for over 30 years. In 1985 Holdren predicted a billion deaths from climate-related famine by the end of this decade. Since then, famine has plummeted and billions have longer life expectancy thanks to fossil fuel-powered industrialization and agriculture.

So I like many others submitted questions on Twitter, following the White House’s instructions to tag them#AskDrH. (I guess the title is supposed to turn Holdren from doomsday Luddite who demanded we embark on a ‘massive campaign’ to ‘de-develop the United States,’ into Dr. H the accessible oracle.)

But Dr. H has not answered any of our questions. Instead, he continues to use his position to make statements like this one on Letterman: .....To Read More....
