Tucker Carlson Tonight - Broadcast December 21, 2020 - Fox News Channel
Morano: "What they're trying to do, you saw Biden allude to it there with 'Build Back Better.' They're trying to essentially use the COVID lockdown model for the climate emergency model. And they are going to go from COVID lockdowns to climate lockdowns."
"Senator Merkley (D-OR) came out today and is urging a President Joe Biden to declare a national climate emergency which would give him emergency powers that he could bypass democracy, much in the same way that blue-state governors have already done with the COVID lockdowns," Morano said.
RealClearPolitics: Climate Depot publisher Marc Morano warned Biden and Democrats are using the COVID lockdown model to prepare for “climate lockdowns” in an interview Monday night with FOX News host Tucker Carlson.
“The CEO of Harris Polling lamented that climate went from a top-tier issue in his poll, to second to last of all issues in the past year,” Morano said. “So they’re freaked out that no one is talking and no one cares about climate among the public.”
“What they’re trying to do, you saw Biden allude to it there with ‘Build Back Better.’ They’re trying to essentially use the COVID lockdown model for the climate emergency model. And they are going to go from COVID lockdowns to climate lockdowns,” Morano said.
“Senator Merkley (D-OR) came out today and is urging a President Joe Biden to declare a national climate emergency which would give him emergency powers that he could bypass democracy, much in the same way that blue-state governors have already done with the COVID lockdowns,” Morano said.

Biden calls climate change an ’emergency.’ Now he’s under pressure to officially declare it one – Urged to ‘invoke the National Emergencies Act’
WaPo: “The Center for Biological Diversity sent the Biden transition team a report urging the president-elect to invoke the National Emergencies Act to address both the rise of global temperatures and the loss of species to extinction. Greenpeace, 350.org and Oil Change U.S. are among other left-leaning environmental groups that have endorsed the idea. During the campaign, Biden pointed to climate change as one of the biggest challenges facing the nation, alongside the coronavirus pandemic, economic recession and a reckoning over race.”
Federal judges are “extraordinarily deferential” to presidents invoking emergency powers, Hartl with the Center for Biological Diversity argued.
You were warned: COVID lockdowns morph to Climate Lockdowns?! Biden urged to invoke ‘a climate emergency’ – ‘Could give Biden the authority to circumvent Congress’
Bloomberg News: Invoking a climate emergency could give Biden the authority to circumvent Congress and fund clean energy projects, shut down crude oil exports, suspend offshore drilling and curtail the movement of fossil fuels on pipelines, trains, and ships, according to a research note by consulting firm ClearView Energy Partners. “The president’s powers to address climate change through an emergency are very, very large,” said Kassie Siegel, an attorney with the environmental group Center for Biological Diversity, which is lobbying Biden’s team to act. “This is No. 1 on the list of things the Biden administration should do.” …
“Declaring a climate emergency will radicalize climate protection, alienating the very moderate Senators needed to pass infrastructure and other bills with carbon-reducing provisions,” said Paul Bledsoe, a former climate official in the Clinton White House, now with the Progressive Policy Institute. …Greenpeace, along with the Center for Biological Diversity and groups like Friends of the Earth, were among 500 organizations that called for the next president to declare a national climate emergency last December. Two candidates who sought the Democratic presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders and Tom Steyer, vowed on the campaign trail to declare climate change a national emergency.

Earth colder now than in the geological past
Ivy League Geologist Explains that Earth is currently in one of coldest periods in History. Excerpt: Ivy League geologist Dr. Robert Giegengack is a professor of earth and environmental science at the University of Pennsylvania. Giegengack noted that the history the last one billion years on the planet reveals “only about 5% of that time has been characterized by conditions on Earth that were so cold that the poles could support masses of permanent ice.” Giegengack also noted “for most of Earth’s history, the globe has been warmer than it has been for the last 200 years. It has rarely been cooler.” https://www.phillymag.com/news/2007/02/02/science-al-gore-is-a-greenhouse-gasbag/ & http://icecap.us/index.php/go/political-climate/al_gore_is_a_greenhouse_gasbag/
Skeptical Climate ‘Talking Points’ 36-Page Report Released at UN Climate Summit in Madrid
UN IPCC’s claim of human-caused warming:
Monckton rips AP’s Seth Borenstein for touting UN IPCC’s meaningless 95% confidence in man-made global warming: Monckton: It is ‘no more scientific a process than a show of hands’
Monckton to Borenstein: ‘The IPCC’s pretence that it is 95% confident that most of the warming since 1950 was manmade is transparently rent-seeking guesswork, to which no intelligent journalist should lend the slightest credence…The IPCC’s attempt to assign a quantified statistical confidence interval to a non-statistical process was inappropriate and, mathematically speaking, contemptible’ — The sheer dumbness of the IPCC’s approach should at least be questioned by journalists, not merely paraded as though it were some sort of Gospel truth…Surely it would be better to start asking real questions than merely to parrot uncritically the innumerate absurdities of a politicized clique of profiteers of doom in the scientific establishment. Time to raise your game.’
AP’s Borenstein wrote glowingly about the UN IPCC’s 95% confidence in man-made global warming, but failed to tell his readers that the number was made up out of thin air. ‘

Medieval Warm Period:
‘More than 700 scientists from 400 institutions in 40 countries have contributed peer-reviewed papers providing evidence that the Medieval Warm Period was real, global, & warmer than the present’
New Study: ‘Multiple lines of evidence’ show Medieval Warm Period was warmer than today
New technical paper in GeoResJ: “After applying the latest big data technique to six 2,000 year-long proxy-temperature series we cannot confirm that recent warming is anything but natural – what might have occurred anyway, even if there was no industrial revolution.There are, however, multiple lines of evidence indicating it was about a degree warmer across Europe during the MWP – corresponding with the 1200 AD rise in our Northern Hemisphere composite. In fact, there are oodles of published technical papers based on proxy records that provide a relatively warm temperature profile for this period. This was before the Little Ice Age when it was too cold to inhabit Greenland.

Roman Warming Period:
New paper finds solar activity may influence Arctic sea ice, less ice during Medieval & Roman Warm Periods – Published in Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology
Study reconstructs Arctic sea ice near West Greenland over the past 5,000 years and finds that solar activity “may be an important contributor to the sea-ice changes.” The paper shows Total Solar Irradiance [TSI] at the end of the 20th century was at the highest levels of the past 5,000 years, and a correspondence between solar activity and Arctic sea ice concentration.

More Glacier Studies Confirm Roman And Medieval Warm Periods Were Just As Warm As Today
Paper finds the Alps were nearly ice-free 2000 years ago during the Roman Warming Period
New paper finds Norway glaciers much larger today than during Roman & Egyptian warming periods & Holocene climate optimum — Published in Quaternary Science Reviews
Study ‘reconstructs the size of four glaciers in Norway over the past 10,000 years and shows all four were considerably smaller than the present during the Holocene Climate Optimum between ∼8000 and 5500 years ago, as well as during the Roman and Egyptian warming periods 2000-3000 years ago. The paper finds the Little Ice Age [LIA] was the coldest period with the largest glacier extent of the past 10,000 years. Note: The estimated cooling during the LIA was 1.5 °C, but the globe has only recovered 0.7°C since the end of the LIA in ~1850.‘
New Paper: Roman & Medieval Warm Periods Were Warmer Than Previously Thought
‘A paper published in Nature Climate Change finds prior temperature reconstructions from tree-rings ‘may underestimate pre-instrumental [pre-1850] temperatures including warmth during Medieval and Roman times.’ Many reconstructions show temperatures during the Medieval and Roman periods were warmer than the present, and this study suggests they were even warmer than previously thought’
Medieval Warm Period found in 120 proxies. Plus Roman era was similar to early 20th Century
‘Climate models cannot explain what caused warming 1000 years ago, nor cooling 300 years ago, so they can’t rule out the same factors aren’t changing the climate today (though they claim they can). If climate models can’t explain the past, they can’t predict the future’
