Biden faces calls to declare a ‘climate emergency’ as he heads to Maui – Climate groups & Congressional allies urge him to invoke emergency powers – ‘Enable Biden to take sweeping action to restrain greenhouse gas production’

Many of Biden’s allies in Congress have urged him to invoke emergency powers, which would enable the president to take sweeping action to restrain greenhouse gas production, implement large-scale clean transportation solutions and finance distributed energy projects, among other actions. …

Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.): “The devastation in Maui is a clear sign that the president must declare a climate emergency — now.”

Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.): “This is a crisis and we need to treat it that way. That starts with President Biden declaring a national climate emergency to unlock vast federal resources and emergency powers to help our communities prepare for and recover from these deadly climate disasters.”

National director of the Green New Deal Network: “If there was ever a moment to declare a climate emergency, it is right now.”

If Biden declares a ‘Climate Emergency,’ he would seize 130 new powers – Seeks repeat of COVID-style lockdowns with bypassing of democracy – Morano Responds

Climate Depot’s Morano: ”The Biden administration believes that when democracy fails to achieve its climate goals, it’s time to bypass democracy and Congress and follow the COVID model. Climate activists have lusted after the COVID lockdowns as the model for climate lockdowns. The plan is to declare a ‘climate emergency,’ toss out elected representatives and follow China’s one-party rule model by implementing energy restrictions through the bureaucracy. They don’t need no stinkin’ democracy. Throughout history,emergency declarations have been used and abused to crush freedom.For those who loved how unelected officials ruled our lives under COVID lockdowns, prepare for the attempts to make climate lockdowns permanent. For an idea of what the world would look like under a climate lockdown.”” See:2021 International Energy Agency’s ‘Net-Zero’ report urges, “behavioral changes’ to fight climate: A shift away from private car use‚ upper speed limits’ & thermostat controls; limits on hot water and more!

Joe Bastardi: Climate policy is the real existential threat

Bastardi: The U.S. Energy Information Administration estimates that the United States emitted 5,130 million metric tons of energy-related carbon dioxide in 2019. THAT COMES OUT TO 11.28 TRILLION POUNDS. Very close to what trees take out!!!! … Every tree takes about 50 lbs of CO2 out of the air. I am going to use my home state of Pennslyvania, which is an industrial powerhouse that, in 2022, emitted 156,000,000,000 lbs of CO2. The dirty little secret is that Pennsylvania has almost 5 BILLION trees. At 50 lbs per tree, that is close to 250,000,000,000 lbs of CO2 taken out of the air. Meaning due to the trees in Pennsylvania, we are a carbon-negative state because of our forests!

The recent decision in Montana plumbs the depths of dumb. I can word it no other way. MONTANA, DUE TO ALL THE TREES THERE, HAS A NEGATIVE CARBON FOOTPRINT!  So if it’s CO2 that is the problem, how does a judge rule that a state with a negative carbon footprint, is somehow destroying the lives of a bunch of kids whose lives are, actually, being destroyed by needless fear-mongering?

Frying the Knot? NYT Proclaims Misery for Summer Weddings Because ‘Climate Change’

The Times kicked off its agitprop by exploiting the plight of a couple who wanted to get married outside in July in Phoenix, Arizona to make them a case study of how climate change can put a damper on the wedding bells. “Mr. Boggler, 47, and Ms. Wall, 41, had rented a tent to keep their guests cool and decided to test it out with three air-conditioning units running, but the temperature inside the tent wouldn’t dip below 93 degrees.” The newspaper would later mourn how “[f]all and spring may soon replace summer as the peak wedding season.” [Emphasis added.]
