Marc Morano's comment: "The world has lost one of its greatest thinkers and the greatest defender of freedom. As a former student of Dr. Willaims at George Mason University in the 1980s, his loss cuts deep. I interviewed Dr. Williams for GMU TV, I got a 'C' in his economics class and I later featured him in my Amazon Rainforest Documentary in 2000.

Williams was a ferocious debater who regularly popped the Left and media misperceptions on race, economics, culture and freedom. He also a regular guest host of Rush Limbaugh's nationally syndicated radio show. His death will leave a gaping hole in intellectual thought."
Williams recent quotes:
"Leftists constantly preach such nonsense as 'The world that we live in is beautiful but fragile.' ... 'Remember that Earth needs to be saved every single day.' These and many other statements, along with apocalyptic predictions, are stock in trade for environmentalists. Worse yet, this fragile-earth indoctrination is fed to the nation's youth from kindergarten through college. That's why many millennials support Rep. Ocasio-Cortez." -- Walter Williams in 2019
“Prior to capitalism, the way people amassed great wealth was by looting, plundering and enslaving their fellow man. Capitalism made it possible to become wealthy by serving your fellow man.” -- Walter E. Williams
"Despite the miracles of capitalism, it doesn't do well in popularity polls. One of the reasons is that capitalism is always evaluated against the non-existent utopias of socialism or communism. Any earthly system pales in comparison to utopias. But for the ordinary person, capitalism, with all of its warts, is superior to any system yet devised to deal with our everyday needs and desires." - Walter Williams
“The Trump administration should undertake a hiring bonanza of skeptical climate scientists to fill positions ,” said Marc Morano, a former Republican staffer for the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee who runs the ClimateDepot.com website. “I expect to see the Trump administration partake in a scientific version of affirmative action hiring practices in the government for the next 10 weeks.”
WWF International: "Transformative change is urgently needed in our productive sectors, including our food systems, forestry, fisheries, infrastructure and extractives, and in the finance sector. These transformations need to happen fast if we are to limit risks of higher restoration costs and irreversible damage, including new pandemics and species extinction. We must transform our food systems so that enough healthy and nutritious food is produced for all, within planetary boundaries."
