Climate Depot Publisher Marc Morano, who stars alongside actor Kevin Sorbo in the upcoming Climate Hustle 2 documentary skeptical of radical environmental policies, tells CNSNews.com that the change to "resilient" is proof that even some Democrats have doubts about the Green New Deal:
"Pelosi knows just how toxic the Green New Deal has become to many Americans, including many Democrats. Pelosi's morphing from calling it the 'green dream' to now avoiding the word 'green' in favor of 'resilient' shows just how uneasy many of the Democratic leadership is with the Green New Deal."
Chomsky on Biden's Green New Deal: "Take Biden's campaign positions. Farther to the left than any Democratic candidate in memory on things like climate. It's far better than anything that preceded it. Not because Biden had a personal conversion or the DNC had some great insight, but because they're being hammered on by activists coming out of the Sanders movement and others."
"I'm not much interested in his personality. I don't have any opinion. I'm interested in how things get done. And the way things get done is not by Biden having a religious conversion and saying, 'Oh, we've got to really work on the climate.' That's not what happened. The DNC probably hates the program, but they have no choice, because their popular base is not only demanding it, but is working constantly, hard, to force them to do it. That's politics. Not the personality of leaders. I don't know what's in his mind. I don't care, frankly."
Sen. Kamala Harris of California and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York are teaming up on a proposal requiring lawmakers who introduce climate bills to consider the impact such legislation will have on black people and poor communities.
Steve Milloy: "None of what the Joe Biden green team has in store will improve the environment; it will only make your life poorer and harder."
"A green push is a political agenda. It’s not about controlling the climate. It’s about controlling you. You can see this for yourself in the prescriptive lifestyle climate activists demand: Don’t eat meat. You don’t need a car. Avoid air conditioning. Wash in cold water. Dry your clothes on a clothesline. As Al Gore asked at the end of his 2007 movie, “An Inconvenient Truth,” “Are you ready to change the way you live?” While you’re changing the way you live, China, India, and soon Africa will be emitting greenhouse gases like there’s no tomorrow to raise their national standards of living."
"A Biden administration would move to ban fracking, the oil production technology that has liberated Americans and our gas prices from the shackles of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, or OPEC, cartel. In no time, American drivers would be facing European-style gas prices and sweating every time Iran, Russia, or Saudi Arabia moved to threaten the global oil supply."
The New York Times recently ran an opinion column commanding readers to “Stop Using Toilet Paper.” It advocated for using something reusable or upgrading your toilet so it shoots streams of targeted water. It seems nothing environmental extremists do can be too intrusive.
"In order to get this nomination without a fight, [Biden] had to cede climate and energy over to the Bernie Sanders/AOC wing – and people like AOC are actually writing all of this. Biden is merely a figurehead when it comes to this," he tells OneNewsNow.
"It's not like [Democrats are saying] 'Bernie Sanders didn't win, so we're going to get a more rational climate policy.' No – Biden has essentially ceded his control over this policy to that extremist climate emergency wing of the Democrats."
Germany is failing to meet its climate goals of reducing carbon-dioxide emissions even after spending over $580 billion by 2025 to overhaul its energy systems. Germany’s emissions miss should be a “wake-up call” for governments everywhere.
Today, German households pay almost 50% more for electricity than they did in 2006 as power prices in Germany are now among the highest in Europe. Much of that increase in electricity cost is the Renewable Surcharge that has increased over the same period by 770%. Germany has learned that clean energy is not energy in totality as wind and solar only provide renewable electricity, and more accurately its only intermittent electricity at best. Renewables have also been the primary driver behind the high costs of electricity for residents of Australia and California.
