- ‘Food Police’ – Watch: Morano on Fox & Friends on UN Meat report: UN seeks ‘massive expansion of the UN’s regulatory power…lifestyle controls’
Climate Depot Note: The UN is rapidly trying to expand its climate regulatory reach. The 2015 UN touted the Paris climate pact which was supposed to save the planet, but alas, it turns out it was not enough according to the UN. (See: UN admits ‘historic’ Paris climate pact did not save Earth after-all! Now says: Cutting CO2 ‘not enough’ – ‘We must change food production to save the world’).
The UN is now also pushing a global environmental pact. See: UN Paris agreement ‘on steroids’- France and UN push for new legally binding global treaty on environment & UN Pushes for ‘Paris Agreement on Steroids’
The UN has also expanded into trying to regulate land use with a species extinction scare. See: Video & Submitted Written Congressional Testimony of Marc Morano – Examining UN Species/Climate Report – UN report is ‘authoritative propaganda’
And now, the UN is trying to morph into a global food police as they try and expand their regulatory power to include food production!
Morano: "This is nothing more than regulatory lifestyle controls by the UN. They are empowering themselves with this report...This is an open call by the United Nations for activist policies in taxes and regulation. And we have seen activists come out with ideas like the meat patch, like a nicotine patch, which would induce allergies to people so they won’t eat meat. It’s getting whackier and whackier."
"What's interesting is back in the 1970s, they predicted a food catastrophe based on the global cooling scare."

- Lomborg: Don’t let vegetarian environmentalists shame you for eating meat. Science is on your side
n a first world setting, the reality is that going entirely vegetarian for the rest of your life means you reduce your emissions by about 2%, according to a study of the environmental impact of Swedish vegetarians. To put this into context: either you could go vegetarian for the rest of your life, or you could reduce your emissions by the exact same amount by spending a little more than $3 a year using the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, the first mandatory market-based program in the United States covering several states to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Given all of this, it seems downright mean-spirited of the Manchester University scientists to try to shame people for having a summer barbecue.Posted 9:58 AM by Marc Morano | Tags: agricultural, astrology, funding, wacky
- ‘Check please!’ Californians to fight ‘global warming’ with restaurant surcharge
Participating restaurants will add a 1 percent surcharge to their bills, with that money going into a fund aimed at helping farmers remove carbon from the atmosphere and adopt climate-friendly practices. The payoff for restaurants could come from increased business. They’ll be able to market themselves as “zero carbon,” which can appeal to customers looking for a good meal with a smaller environmental footprint.Posted 9:58 AM by Marc Morano | Tags: agricultural, astrology, funding, wacky
Say What?! The Hill: ‘Climate paradox’ – New study finds emissions cuts ‘will make the earth much hotter in the short term’
The Hill: Climate paradox: Emission cuts could ‘unmask’ deadly face of climate change, scientists warn - One the one hand, cutting fossil fuel pollution is necessary for avoiding severe destruction over the long term. But such cuts will make the earth much hotter in the short term. ...
These cuts remain one of the only examples of successful cuts to climate-warming pollution, but the new study found that those pandemic-era cuts in air pollution led to a rise in global temperatures. The findings, published on Wednesday in the journal NPJ Climate and Atmospheric Science, unveil a stark paradox at the heart of human-caused climate change.

Study: Lower emissions during the COVID lockdowns caused climate warming effect – ‘Short-lived cooling particles in the air was greatly reduced’
Via Engineering & Technology: While reduced air pollution emissions leads to better air quality, they also enable stronger climate warming effects, scientists in Sweden have said. ... It was discovered that while the concentrations of polluting short-lived air particles decreased significantly, the concentrations of longer-lived greenhouse gases were barely affected in the air mass over South Asia. The cooling effect of the aerosols comes from the fact that they reflect incoming solar radiation back into space. With a lower aerosol content, there is less cooling, and thus less ‘masking’ of the warming effect of the significantly longer-lived climate gases. ...
The results show that a complete phasing out of fossil-fuel combustion in favour of renewable energy sources with zero emissions could result in rapid ‘unmasking’ of aerosols, while greenhouse gases linger. ... “During a couple of decades, emission reductions risk leading to net climate warming due to the ‘masking’ effect of air particles, before the temperature reduction from reduced greenhouse gas emissions takes over.
John Kerry To Peasants: Die, To Save The Planet – ‘The world’s population must slash meat consumption’ – Statistician pushes back: ‘Net Zero is the lunatic idea’
Statistician Dr. WILLIAM M BRIGGS: Kerry claims “the world’s population must slash meat consumption.” ... Stopping people from farming will indeed stop their “emissions”. If by “emissions” he means breathing. Because once farmers stop farming, the food stops. And once the food stops, breathing stops. And once breathing stops, emissions stop. And once emissions stop, the nirvana of “net zero” will have been reached. ...
The government will shut down little- and mid-guy farms, while allowing mega-corporation donors—I mean farm owners—to keep running. Meaning Kerry, and Gates, are calling for a New & Improved! scientific method of collectivisation. Only instead of direct government ownership of farms, oligarchs will own them. The price they pay will be having Experts produce the regulations that govern them. Could it be a coincidence Gates has been buying up farmland?

Dr. Roger Pielke Jr.: The science and data reporters refuse to report: "Hurricane landfalls along the continental U.S. show no trends since at least 1900.""Development and growth are sufficient to explain why hurricane damage has increased dramatically."
