Morano: "Not everyone, however, is a fan of Warren's legislation... "This is virtue signaling of the highest order for her Democratic base, Marc Morano, the editor of ClimateDepot.com, said on "Fox & Friends" Wednesday. He argued that Warren's bill would give the U.S. government and the Securities and Exchange Commission extensive power to go after companies and "shake them down."
Morano: "My book details the absurdity of all of this, pay up or face bad weather. The government has to protect us from bad weather."
"Capitalism as we know it is over. So suggests a new report commissioned by a group of scientists appointed by the UN Secretary-General." ... Those are the stark implications of a new scientific background paper prepared by a team of Finnish biophysicists. The team from the BIOS Research Unit in Finland were asked to provide research that would feed into the drafting of the UN Global Sustainable Development Report (GSDR), which will be released in 2019...The IGS is supported by a range of UN agencies including the UN Secretariat, the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, the UN Environment Programme, the UN Development Programme, the UN Conference on Trade and Development and the World Bank.
The BIOS paper suggests that much of the political and economic volatility we have seen in recent years has a root cause in ecological crisis...“We live in an era of turmoil and profound change in the energetic and material underpinnings of economies. The era of cheap energy is coming to an end,” the paper says...“We face a form of capitalism that has hardened its focus to short-term profit maximization with little or no apparent interest in social good.”
“Why is this so important to Russia?” Morano asked his audience. “Think back to ‘Star Wars’ and Ronald Reagan and 1983, which was a very important point. Reagan gave a speech [about developing SDI], and the media went nuts and said he wanted to expand the arms race into space.” However, Soviet leaders took Reagan’s Strategic Defense Initiative “very seriously,” he said, including General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev when he came to power.“ The Russians knew they could not afford to compete with the SDI program, and that economically they could not afford this,” Morano said. “Now with Donald Trump’s energy policies and with the U.S. becoming an energy powerhouse, the Russians know this is the worst thing that could ever happen because they can’t afford to keep up economically.” Gorbachev tried repeatedly to persuade Reagan to drop the plans for a space-based missile shield, but to no avail, Morano said
