Morano: "When you go and plug in your electric car and you pat yourself on the back for being nice and green, you're powering that battery, you're recharging that battery with fossil fuels. That's the first thing, and that doesn't even bring into how they put the batteries together.
All the rare earth mining is giving China the world monopoly on this. China is buying up Africa. They're going in places like Congo, where 70% of the world's cobalt. They are using underage labor. They're using Uyghur slaves in China. They are the ones we have to turn to and they are making us more reliant on them to dig up the Earth without our higher environmental standards. We're outsourcing our pollution to get electric cars that run and recharge on fossil fuels. It makes no environmental sense in that regard."
China "produces and consumes more than half of global supply, and it’s the biggest contributor to its world-leading greenhouse gas emissions." ... China will "boost domestic production capacity by about 300 million tons, according to people familiar with the matter. It also plans to build a 620 million-ton stockpile of the fuel."

Tucker Carlson excerpt: "But now, because Putin invaded Ukraine, effectively encouraged by the Biden administration to do that, which is true, because that happened, we are going to send billions of dollars to the Saudi theocracy and then to the Iranians and then to Nicolás Maduro in Venezuela and at the same time, we're going to embrace green energy, which means giving the government of China complete control over a power grid here in America. That's our plan. Are you confused by it? Don't be. It's a moral victory. Let us know when you get tired of winning."

“The interesting thing about China is that you can go back decades, and United Nations climate chief Christiana Figueres has praised China’s one-party rule for, essentially, getting things done, [Canadian Prime Minister] Justin Trudeau praised China’s one-party rule because it could get things done on investments in solar energy, and you have many other prominent figures in the climate movement who have used China as a model,” Morano said. ...
“It’s just bonkers from a strategic and national security point of view for Europe, Canada, and the United States to actually start shutting down our energy and then play by some ‘Green New Deal’ rules when OPEC, Iran, Russia, and China have zero intention of playing by the same rules,” Morano added.
Via Carbon Brief on Feb. 17, 2022: China releases ‘top-level’ document for energy transition - WHAT: China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) and National Energy Administration (NEA) – the state economic planner and energy planner, respectively – jointly published a set of “opinions” to guide the nation’s energy transition.
The document emphasizes that fossil fuels should only be “replaced” when renewable energy supplies become “reliable” – a message Chinese officials have repeatedly stressed since power shortages occurred late last year.

Morano on Rush Limbaugh: "When I started my career in 1992 working for Rush Limbaugh, I saw the original cancel culture. The Clinton White House seized my camera when I was working at the White House because I was working for Rush -- solely because I was working Rush Limbaugh. I was thrown out of fundraisers in Washington, DC while working for Rush."
There is concern over the use of aluminum for the production of solar panels - Aluminium production is emissions intensive, but refineries are increasingly turning to renewable energy. - "As countries around the globe push towards net zero emissions targets, new research has highlighted an area of environmental concern in the production of solar panels. An Australian study has found that to reach net zero milestones, the world will need almost 60 times more solar power, the production of which could cause "concerning" levels of global warming unless steps to reduce emissions during the panel production process are taken."
Steve Milloy: Today’s elevation is not all that different from the low points of 1956 and 1965 (about 1,090 feet, shown in first graph), especially when you consider the increases in water use and human management of reservoir levels over time. No doubt that drought is affecting Lake Mead. But Western drought is natural (the region is a desert, after all), and Lake Mead was comparably low more than 100 ppm CO2 ago.
Bill Gates, Sir Richard Branson, Hollywood actors, venture capitalists — they’re all pushing lab-grown meat as the solution to world hunger and environmental sustainability, but scientists last week told a panel of experts they have serious concerns about the product’s safety.
