Governments face a choice between increasing their climate pledges or embarking on an “immoral” and “suicidal” path, UN secretary general António Guterres said on Wednesday...“To waste this opportunity would compromise our last best chance to stop runaway climate change. It would not only be immoral, it would be suicidal,” Guterres said. “This may sound like a dramatic appeal, but it is exactly this: a dramatic appeal.”
Morano: "Let's distinguish between actual pollution and carbon dioxide emissions and yes there's all kinds of technology and improvement and infrastructure development you can do to improve the results of coal burning to clean up your air and Poland is doing that.
But in terms of what Dominic just said about the history of Poland to be dominated by Germany then decades under the Soviet Union all they've done now is essentially replaced a new regulatory body that's come in and it's going to be the EU in the UN telling Poland how they can do their energy mix 79% of Poland is coal miners it's one of the most revered institutions polling shows that pulp mine workers are considered higher the highest most respected citizens in the country this is part of Polish nationalism there's nothing wrong with it.
What I would say to Poland is join President Trump join Brazil join these other countries that are taking a hard look at leaving the UN Paris pact."
During the question and answer session of the event, The New American magazine was able to ask the panel why U.S. officials were continuing to play along with the notion that there is something dirty or “unclean” about emissions of the “gas of life” carbon dioxide — even though President Trump ridiculed the man-made global-warming hypothesis as a “hoax” to aid the Communist Chinese while successfully campaigning for election...
Climate Depot chief Marc Morano, a leading voice on the skeptical side of the climate debate, said the Trump administration appeared to be taking a page from the Bush administration on global warming. “Unfortunately they are not really challenging the science in public, even though they are rejecting the supposed solutions,” Morano told The New American after the event. “Trump's position on this issue has not yet trickled down into the bureaucracy. And with [EPA chief] Scott Pruitt forced out by the media, we still have no senior official, including Energy Secretary Rick Perry, willing to challenge these people on the so-called science they are using to justify all this.”
Christiana Figueres, the former United Nations official responsible for the 2015 Paris climate agreement, has a startling vision for restaurants of the future: Anyone who wants a steak should be banished.
“How about restaurants in 10-15 years start treating carnivores the same way that smokers are treated?” Figueres suggested during a recent conference. “If they want to eat meat, they can do it outside the restaurant.”
Bjorn Lomborg reacts: That’s because your hamburger is being blamed for climate change. Meat production — especially raising cattle — emits methane and requires carbon-dioxide-intensive inputs. In the breathless language of recent reporting, a “huge reduction in meat-eating is essential” to avoid “climate breakdown.”
