“They want to use the COVID lockdown as the model for climate lockdowns,” said Morano of Democrats and the broader left, offering his remarks on Tuesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. Morano noted how the coronavirus outbreak displaced “climate change” as the left’s “ticket to a Soviet-style regulatory state.” Morano recalled how assorted left-wing doomsday narratives from previous decades — including “global cooling” and “overpopulation” — were framed as justifications for implementation of totalitarian central planning and control. “It was all based on the same concept, that everything’s limited, we’re all going to die and and we need to essentially turn our lives over to central planning,” Morano stated. ...
Morano added, “Bill Gates has said the COVID pandemic is nothing compared to how many deaths — the death toll — that’s going to come from climate change. Guess what academics already want to do? They want a provision to add climate change to your death certificate, and this is a very real possibility.”
Note: Economist Sanjeev Sabhlok, resigned from his job in the Department of Treasury and Finance in Victoria Australia in September 2020 “to protest the outrageous violations of liberty” due to the COVID lockdowns.
Sanjeev Sabhlok rips lockdown apologists: "This is a piece clearly from someone who has worked from home and enjoyed the lockdowns. This was a big test of science and philosophy and we have failed on both counts...The science was very clear: there shall be no lockdowns for flu-like viruses."
"Australia should never be cited as an example: it is nothing short of the most inhumane totalitarian society in the world today, not a role model for anyone in the civilized world or for anyone who considers himself human...Those of us who have lived through living hell in Melbourne & locked up in Australia like chicken in a coop (borders closed), w/ wide-scale police brutalities on young who underwent most extreme mental torture ever, know this is the worst form of civilisation in human history."
"Are we going to do this for all other pandemics in the future? Is this our new “science” – divested entirely from consideration of humanity and liberty? I’m afraid I will never support such “science”. ... "See my complaint to the International Criminal Court for details. We do not authorize a government to take the life of person X while trying to save the life of person Y."
Newsweek: A new study evaluating COVID-19 responses around the world found that mandatory lockdown orders early in the pandemic did not provide significantly more benefits to slowing the spread of the disease than other voluntary measures, such as social distancing or travel reduction. The peer reviewed study, which was conducted by a group of Stanford researchers and published in the Wiley Online Library on January 5, analyzed coronavirus case growth in 10 countries in early 2020.
"We do not question the role of all public health interventions, or of coordinated communications about the epidemic, but we fail to find an additional benefit of stay-at-home orders and business closures," the research added.
The media buried long-standing scientific concerns that Anthony Fauci had been ‘sucking money away from work to understand and counter natural disease outbreaks.’
The Washington Post quoted House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer lamenting: “It’s a shame that at the first hint of this we didn’t just say to Tony Fauci, ‘You’re in charge, you have all the power you need, tell us what needs to be done.’”

In February, Gates will release his book 'How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need' In it he sets out his plans for how the world can reach zero greenhouse gas emissions in time to prevent a climate crisis This comes months after he published a blog post lecturing the public that climate change 'could be worse' than the coronavirus pandemic Signature Aviation handles 1.6 million private jet flights every year A private jet flight emits up to 40 times as much carbon per passenger as regular commercial flights, according to research"
Climate Depot's Morano: "Decimating the Commerical airline industry with endless COVID lockdown policies won't impact people like Bill Gates, Prince Charles, Al Gore, Leo DiCaprio -- They will continue to fly on (and own) private jets & private jet companies.
“It is our expectation that there could be a requirement from other countries to produce (coronavirus) vaccine documentation at entry. This is where a Danish vaccine passport can be used,” the ministry explained in an emailed response. The ‘passport’ will be regularly updated as soon as new data on the transmission of the virus, as well as the effectiveness and length of the protection provided by the vaccines, becomes available. ...
Svane also expressed hope that an international solution will be worked out to allow for such ‘vaccine passports’ to be used everywhere around the globe. ... The international association for airlines, IATA, is also working on a similar digital document, called the IATA Travel Pass Initiative. Air carriers also welcome the introduction of ‘vaccination passports’. United, Lufthansa, Swiss International Airlines and Virgin Atlantic all tested the CommonPass technology in late 2020. Australia’s Qantas Airways earlier announced that proof of Covid-19 vaccination would become mandatory for all international passengers on its flights. Qantas CEO, Alan Joyce, speculated that it’s “going to be a common… in other airlines around the globe.”
Since the 1980s, 29% of human CO2 emissions were cancelled out by the CO2-induced greening of the Earth. The post-2000 vegetative greening expansion has been so massive (5.4 million km²) its net areal increase is equivalent to a region the size of the Amazon rainforest.
Boris Johnson, Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron, and Narendra Modi will apparently gather in the Netherlands. There, along with Bill Gates, UN head Antonio Guterres, and personnel associated with the European Union, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund, they’ll attend a climate summit hosted by the Global Center on Adaptation. ...
We’re told this summit "will launch a comprehensive Adaptation Action Agenda to kick start a transformational decade."
Donna Laframboise: "The chutzpah is astonishing. The global economy is in tatters. Billions face an uncertain future. Health care workers are exhausted. Yet this Clique of Self-Important People™ is full speed ahead, determined to impose its climate vision on the rest of us."
In the last 500 years only some 80 mammals are recorded as having gone extinct. In his book, More From Less, Andrew McAfee, a board member of HumanProgress.org, discusses how relatively rare recorded extinctions are – with some 530 across all species in the last five centuries. More importantly, he notes, the rate of extinction “appear[s] to have slowed down in recent decades; for example, no marine creatures have been recorded as extinct in the last fifty years.”
Matt Ridley, another board member and frequent contributor to this site, argues that despite the human population doubling in the last half-century, “the extinction rate of wild species, especially in the most industrialized countries,” seems to have fallen rather than increased. While absence of evidence isn’t the same as evidence of absence, and there might be millions of unrecorded species in the world’s oceans and tropical forests, the most aggressive claims rest on shaky foundations.
