Obama Confirms Holdren : December 2008

Because the truth is that promoting science isn’t just about providing resources—it’s about protecting free and open inquiry. It’s about ensuring that facts and evidence are never twisted or obscured by politics or ideology. It’s about listening to what our scientists have to say, even when it’s inconvenient—especially when it’s inconvenient. Because the highest purpose of science is the search for knowledge, truth and a greater understanding of the world around us. That will be my goal as President of the United States—and I could not have a better team to guide me in this work.”

    Almost 2 years later, even Der Spiegel is catching on:

    Obama’s Lost Magic

    Barack Obama is trying to recover his lost magic……He wants everything to be as it was before……It is like a grown-up going back to the places of his youth: the public swimming pool where he learned to swim, the intersection where he had his first kiss. It’s a sentimental journey…….

    OT, but no tips page:

    Fonda, Turner reunite at Environmental Media Awards

    Saving the planet can make for strange bedfellows, but when it’s a global cause, hatchets are buried and the lovefest begins……”Avatar” snared the EMA for feature film. Clutching his prize, James Cameron exhorted the Hollywood glitterati to step up. “We have such power in our industry, and we need to lead in this cause,”

    Oh, dear, it appears Mr Holdren was entangled in a situation back in 1998 where some facts were perhaps twisted or obscured: “The Curious History of ‘Global Climate Disruption’ ” http://www.americanthinker.com/2010/10/the_curious_history_of_global.html
