Obama’s Science Czar Wants Self-driving Automobile Mandates to Further Agenda 21

John Holdren

Obama appointed left-wing academic John Holdren as his senior advisor on science and technology issues in 2009. Holdren is a zealous proponent of sustainability measures and claims man is causing global warming. Holdren recently expressed an interest in implementing government regulations and mandates to coerce the use of self-driving automobiles.

One of the mandates proposed under the Obama administration is to require that new cars manufactured after a certain date contain self-driving technology. This would be incredibly expensive. Currently, the driverless cars made by Google sell for $75,000 to $85,000.

Promoting driverless cars is a sneaky, backdoor way to eliminate the ownership of cars. Driverless cars will ultimately end up being operated as a ridesharing or taxi service, with people calling to schedule one instead of actually owning a car anymore, due to savings on the purchase price, maintenance costs and parking. Holdren envisions a government role in the driving public’s future where nobody drives their own car anymore in order to help save the environment, cram everyone into smaller spaces, etc.
