‘De-development’? That’s SCIENCE!

And who can argue with SCIENCE?

President Obama’s top science adviser, John P. Holdren, advocated the “de-development” of the United States in books he published in the 1970s.
“A massive campaign must be launched to restore a high-quality environment in North America and to de-develop the United States,” Holdren wrote in a 1973 book he co-authored with Paul R. Ehrlch and Anne H. Ehrlich. “De-development means bringing our economic system (especially patterns of consumption) into line with the realities of ecology and the global resource situation.”

Kind of makes me want to buy some toxic waste and dump it in a pristine mountain stream somewhere, just for spite. Because I’m evil like that.
