Ronald Alan Klain is an American attorney, political consultant, and former lobbyist. A member of the Democratic Party, he served as chief of staff to two U.S. vice presidents: Al Gore (1995–1999) and Joe Biden (2009–2011). After there were reported Ebola virus cases in the United States, he was appointed by Barack Obama to serve as the White House Ebola Response Coordinator in late 2014, serving into early 2015.

In early 2020, he joined Biden's presidential campaign as a senior advisor. Following his victory, president-elect Biden announced that Klain would serve as White House Chief of Staff from January 2021.

Views on Overpopulation

In 2008, Klain stated in an interview that "I think the top leadership challenge issue in our world today is how to deal with the continuing, growing population in the world and all the resource demands it places on the world and burgeoning populations in Africa and Asia that lack the resources to have a healthy, happy life."[1]
