President Barack Obama, John Holdren, Director of Office of Science and Technology Policy, Assistant to the President for Science and Technology - The White House said that heat wave deaths in the U.S. could worsen by 2030 due to climate change, killing over 10,000 in a single summer. John Holdren, Obama's senior science adviser, said steps the world agreed to in Paris last year to curb emissions through 2030 can help fight the risks to health. "We will need a big encore after 2030 ... in order to avoid the bulk of the worst impacts described in this report," he said.
John Holdren was President Barack Obama's Science Advisor: In the 1970s he talked about serious man-made global cooling. Since then, he talks about serious man-made global warming. In 2016 they issued a document saying that they would/could reverse climate change. If the climate gets warmer, they would cool it down (by stopping use of fossil fuels) and if the climate gets cooler, they would warm it up. Nothing close to this has ever been done. Here, he talks about the perversity of scientists discussing the "settled science" of man-made global warming. This has tremendous consequences for the global economy and well being of people everywhere. May the red team - blue team man-made global warming discussions begin.

John Holdren, Science Advior to President Barack Obama: The essence of the energy-climate challenge: • Without energy there is no economy, • Without climate there is no environment, • Without economy and environment there is no material well-being, no civil society, no personal or national security The essence of the challenge is that the world has long been getting most of the energy its economies need in ways that are now seriously disrupting the climate its environment needs.
John Holdren, Science Advior to President Barack Obama: The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a special report in September 2019 warning of the mounting effects of global warming on the seas, increasing temperatures and acidification, and on the world’s melting ice. Holdren said, I don’t think there’s any good news in the report because it’s focused only on the science, and it’s been true for decades now that virtually all of the new news from climate science has been bad news. He has radically changed his position on catastrophic fossil fuel induced climate effects since the 1970s. First he sounded the alarm for catastrophic man-made global cooling, then global warming, then climate change and recently climate disruption. His photo in this article presents an unusual position for his arms. Is this a subtle message?
