Broadcast September 15, 2020 – Tucker Carlson Tonight – Fox News Channel
Tucker Carlson: If there’s one thing in this world that Joe Biden cares about above all other than an early dinner, its climate change. So given that, it seems a little strange when the people and Joe Biden’s campaign team who can operate computers tweeted out an image showing Joe Biden hopping onto a private jet. The note said it, wheels up! Just like a teenager on Instagram. But it shouldn’t surprise you. After all according to Joe Biden, only Donald Trump can hurt the climate.
Biden video clip: We have four more years of trumps climate denial. How many suburbs will be burned in wildfires? How many suburban neighborhoods will have been flooded out? How many suburbs will have been blown away in superstorms? If you give a client arsonist four more years in the White House, why would anyone be surprised that we have more America blazed?
Carlson: Really, Joe Biden? And why did you just buy a beach house, if you really believe that? Because you don’t. What they tell us is, that’s why they call it global warming. The wildfires are burning the western half of this country because — climate change. They are not affecting Canada which is also on the globe. Cannada right now is in fact is experiencing right now a steep decline in wildfires. In Alberta, about 1450 hectares have burned so far. So it’s going down even though climate change is getting worse. How did Canada buy an exemption from global climate change?
Marc Morano is with Climate Depot and he’s the producer of the upcoming film Climate Hustle 2 — I’m going to watch that. Thanks so much Marc for coming on. So is it because Canada has a progressive prime minister in Justin Trudeau that they have opted out of climate change? How do they do this?
Marc Morano: It’s very simple, the Canadians voted the right way, so they were spared the drought, the wildfires. Canada has unusually cool conditions and wetter. So the finger of carbon dioxide didn’t affect Canada but it focused on California for some reason. What Joe Biden said is you can vote yourself better weather, President Obama said the same thing in 2012 and people did vote for him. They voted him back in, but guess what, we still have extreme weather. So voting for Obama didn’t help and I don’t know how voting for Biden is going to stop extreme weather.
Carlson: The fires are real and people who care about actual forest and animals and nature, and there are very few of those in the progressive side to come like to see its end. It seems like a cover for the mismanagement of natural resources and Democrats in charge of the state of California.
Morano: In large part is it absolutely that. It’s not just California, its other states in other parts of the west. This sort of no use for a strict forest policy where you leave all the deadwood, it makes it a tinderbox. [Scientific evidence refutes media/politicians’ climate wildfire claims: ‘Less fire today than centuries ago’ – Wildfires are NOT due to ‘climate change’] Even governor Newsom admitted that in his meeting with President Trump, admitted response managed forests better. You see the images and everything, and this is not an unprecedented fire.
The “New York Times” 20 years ago in 1994 had an article, California had droughts of up to 200 plus years that have lasted centuries. (Flashback 1994 New York Times article debunks climate-caused California wildfires) Recent times and California are nothing compared to the past of where it’s been and globally, droughts are not increasing according to the U.N., wildfires are not.
This is climate ambulance chasing at its core, weaponizing weather events to say, look.’ There’s a bad weather event here and we need a Green New Deal.’ They are using science to lobby for Politics. Vote for me and I will make the weather better.
Carlson: And in ten seconds I will ask the question that I’ve always wanted to ask Joe Biden and people like Joe Biden. They say that climate change is destroying our climate. This is a very old planet. What period in the history of this planet had the ideal climate?
Morano: That’s a great question to ask them. Another question would be what’s the ideal temperature? They won’t tell you that either. They just want you to be afraid. In the case of Biden, he actually said we will all die if we don’t stop fossil fuel use and he wants to put fossil fuel executives in jail — but meanwhile he still using private jets. (See: ‘Put them in jail’: Biden demands fossil fuel execs be locked up — But he outspent Dem rivals flying in private jets & continues to fly in them)
Carlson: And they are still destroying the environment. California is dirtier than it was 30 years ago. I can tell you that firsthand. And they did that. Marc, thanks fo much for coming on.
Morano: Thank you, Tucker.
Morano is funny and surgical.
Biden has no idea what he's blathering on about. He's just reading talking points handed to him while he was having a second helping of pudding.https://t.co/X56v9UfTYm

The media and many politicians are claiming the spate of wildfires in 2020 are due to man-made “climate change.” see: Washington grappling with ‘climate fires’ not wildfires, says Gov. Inslee
But, scientific data, scientists, and studies reveal a much different picture.
The new skeptical climate film, Climate Hustle is set to premiere. Climate Hustle 2 Set for Sept. 24 at 8 pm Worldwide release! Exposes agenda behind Green New Deal & UN Paris Pact. The film, hosted by actor Kevin Sorbo, exposes the myths behind the claims that man-made “climate change” causing more extreme weather, including droughts and wildfires.
The following is an excerpt from author Marc Morano’s new 2019 best-selling book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change.
“There is increasing evidence that there is overall less fire in the landscape today than there has been centuries ago, although the magnitude of this reduction still needs to be examined in more detail.”…
“The ‘wildfire problem’ is essentially more a social than a natural one.” Researchers from the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid found that “climate change” is not to blame for increased forest fires in the Mediterranean basin.”…
“In the United States, wildfires are also due in part to a failure to thin forests or remove dead and diseased trees. In 2014, forestry professor David B. South of Auburn University testified to the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee that “data suggest that extremely large megafires were four-times more common before 1940,” adding that “we cannot reasonably say that anthropogenic global warming causes extremely large wildfires.” As he explained, “To attribute this human-caused increase in fire risk to carbon dioxide emissions is simply unscientific.”
“For decades, traditional forest management was scientific and successful, until ideological, preservationist zealots wormed their way into government and began the 40-year overhaul of sound federal forest management through abuse of the Endangered Species Act and the no-use movement…”
“The same climate change impacts private lands as public lands, but private forests are not burning down because they are properly managed. Or if a fire does break out on privately managed forest land, it is often extinguished more quickly and easily because the trees aren’t so close together and the underbrush has been cleared away.”
Flashback 1994 New York Times article debunks climate-caused California wildfires – NYT July 19, 1994: BEGINNING about 1,100 years ago, what is now California baked in two droughts, the first lasting 220 years and the second 140 years. Each was much more intense than the mere six-year dry spells that afflict modern California from time to time, new studies of past climates show. The findings suggest, in fact, that relatively wet periods like the 20th century have been the exception rather than the rule in California for at least the last 3,500 years, and that mega-droughts are likely to recur. …
Dr. Stine, who reported his findings last month in the British journal Nature, says that California, like Tiwanaku, presents “a classic case of people building themselves beyond the carrying capacity of the land,” which is determined not by wet times but by dry ones. “What we’ve done in California is fail to recognize that there are lean times ahead,” said Dr. Stine, “and they are a lot leaner than anything we’ve come up against” in the modern era.
End NYT excerpt
Todd Myers: “The largest number of acres burned in the past five years was in 2018, when temperatures in E. Washington were cooler than this year. By way of contrast, 2017 was an extremely quiet fire year, but average temperature was 3 degrees warmer than the busy 2018 fire season. Additionally, 2014 was an extremely bad fire year, but average Summer temperatures were lower than the very quiet year of 2017. Precipitation was also very similar. Simply pointing to temperatures and even precipitation obviously doesn’t tell the whole story, nor is it a useful surrogate for fire activity.”
Much of California's forests are owned by the federal government, but you can bet that state officials and their radical green backers have worked overtime to make sure that there can be no controlled burns by the feds in the state.https://t.co/3RSqVHYgPZ

Man-made West Coast wildfires – “’Climate change,’” man-made or natural, is emphatically not the reason for these wildfires…The cause of these wildfires is the mismanagement of western forestlands by elected officials and government agencies tasked with overseeing them. Specifically, overgrown trees interfering with power lines and the build-up of dead trees and underbrush over the years are the ingredients for conflagration.”
