Gore: "The wealthy nations of the world should not confuse the short term with the long term and should not be fooled by the absolute need to backfill the shortage of fossil energy caused by the cruel and evil war launched by Russia in Ukraine as an excuse for locking in long term commitments to even more dependence and addiction on fossil fuels", he said. "We have to move beyond the era of fossil fuel colonialism," he added.
Gore: "We have to remove the barriers to the trillions needed for climate Finance and the scale of what is needed can only be provided by the private sector. I support governments paying money for loss and damage and adaptation, but let's be very clear: That's a matter of billions or tens of billions. We need four and a half trillion dollars per year to make this transition and that can only come by unlocking access to private capital in the United States and in Canada."
Gore: "If we actually do reach true Net Zero, the scientists tell us temperatures will stop going up with a lag time of as little as three to five years. And if we stay at true Net Zero, half of all of the man-made CO2 will fall out of the atmosphere in as little as 25 to 30 years."
UN summit's host, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi: "Climate change will never stop without our intervention." - "Our time here is limited and we must use every second that we have.''
World Bank Pres. David Malpass refused to respond directly to the question of whether he accepted the scientific consensus that the burning of fossil fuels is “rapidly and dangerously warming the planet,” The Independent reported.
After being asked multiple times about his views on man-made climate change, Malpass responded to the question by saying, “I don’t know. I’m not a scientist,” reported Bloomberg.
Climate Depot's Marc Morano: "Sen. Manchin caved to utter climate nitwittery that has real consequences for the U.S. economy currently being starved of energy by a wacko ideology that is dominant within the Democratic Party. Now Al Gore is claiming that this bill, which is just a much larger rehash of Obama's green stimulus, will somehow save us from a pending climate 'emergency.' Meanwhile, in the real world, this new Orwellian named 'Inflation Reduction Act' will have no impact on global emissions -- let alone the climate. Even fellow climate activists and democrats are admitting this, calling the deal "a baby step" and "minimum" impact on climate change. Dr. Roger Pielke Jr. analyzed the climate bill's impacts and found that Biden’s 50% emissions-reduction target for 2030 would have an undetectable impact on overall global emissions.
Morano: "But never fret, the bill will have massive impacts on American energy, the economy, and inflation and it may solve racism." See: ‘$60 billion in climate reparations’ – Dems’ New Spending Bill Imposes Methane Tax To Fund ‘Environmental Justice’ Programs - Morano: “Somehow the ‘solutions’ to climate change have morphed into including $60 billion in climate reparations in the name of ‘equity.' Anyone who drinks milk or eats meat will now be paying reparations. Will the $60 billion actually help solve racism? Anyone who thinks this climate bill has anything to with the climate has not been paying attention.”
CNBC: Beyond’s stock has fallen 53% this year, dragging its market value down to $2.06 billion. Wall Street has become skeptical over the company’s long-term growth opportunities as grocery sales lag. Moreover, buzzy partnerships with restaurant giants like Pizza Hut owner Yum Brands and McDonald’s haven’t progressed to many permanent nationwide menu offerings yet.
Morano: "Due to fossil fuels, due to our energy that Gore has been fighting for decades, there has been a 99% drop in climate-related deaths since 1920. It is a success story and mostly credited to fossil fuels which fuel development, which fuel economic growth, which fuels safety from extreme weather events. So Gore has it wrong. The people blocking him (the 'climate deniers') are the ones saving lives."
Al Gore in NYT interview: "It is clear that our reliance on fossil fuels poses a significant and ongoing threat to democracy around the world. We must embrace the shift away from fossil fuels and refuse to allow democracy to be held hostage by petrostates like Russia. ... It has been clear for quite some time that capitalism as we know it is in significant need of reform."
"The United States and every other country around the world has reached a critical inflection point on the climate crisis, which certainly raises the risk of backsliding, though I believe history will view this as an accelerant on our transition away from fossil fuels."
"More and more people are feeling a sense of climate despair and anxiety as the crisis worsens. Despair can be just as powerful a force against climate action as denial has been."
Daniel Horowitz: "Republicans [should] finally stop accepting the pseudo-science and moral premise of the left’s climate agenda. If COVID didn’t teach them the lesson about industry experts and scientific consensus being used to fundamentally transform our lives, create monopolies, and centralize power, then nothing will. COVID should serve as the Great Reset of the two-decade GOP mistake of accepting climate fascism." ... Carbon capture is the perfect political issue, because it allows Republicans to feign triangulation with the greenies while enriching an industry that could never naturally thrive on its own without government mandates, marketing, subsidies, and regulatory capture. ... The worst thing we could be doing now is validating the left’s premise about climate and carbon and pushing expensive ideas built upon those fallacies." ...
"Just as with COVID, Republicans have largely accepted the false premise behind the global warming agenda, which is depleting our quality of life, crushing our freedoms, and making everything expensive. They merely object to the extreme to which Democrats are taking it. However, once you accept the premise, you lose the argument, which is why Republicans have joined in with climate regulations on appliances, green energy mandates and subsidies, and ethanol for years. Now, with so much of the scientific premise being exposed as a scam, just like the COVID vaccine and mask $cience, it’s time to reverse every “climate” policy rooted in the premise of carbon being a pollutant."
