Morano: "They're basing this on ending meat and they're pushing insects... They're pushing it all on ending methane and they're trying to say that methane is a much more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide and this is really deadly and the methane explosion from cows burping and farting etc. The problem is — and I have this in my book Green Fraud, my new book out — if you go into it and talk to the scientists and look at the peer-reviewed literature, methane is called the irrelevant greenhouse gas. It is not going to cause any significant warming. It has already essentially petered itself out as a warming [agent], so all of these are just scary predictions based on bad science...This based not on science of fear on climate, it's based on an imposition on trying to change our lifestyles."

Al Gore on June 19, 2020 on NBC's Today Show: " I think this is a time for a Great Reset. We've got to fix a lot of these problems that have been allowed to fester for way too long, and the climate crisis is an opportunity to create tens of millions of new jobs and clean up the air. reduce the death rate from pandemics -- by the way -- because the air pollution from burning fossil fuels heightens the death rates from coronavirus. So this is a time for a reset to fix a bunch of challenges first among them the climate crisis."
“This is a big moment. The World Economic Forum … is really going to have to play a front and center role in refining the Great Reset to deal with climate change and inequity—all of which is being laid bare as a consequence of COVID-19.” – John Kerry

We must build more equal, inclusive and sustainable economies and societies that are more resilient in the face of pandemics, climate change and the many other global changes we face.” – António Guterres, Secretary-General, United Nations
