Morano: "It is amazing to me that everyone here believes that you can legislate in Pennsylvania -- a better climate by raising energy costs harming yourself economically, and turning over energy decisions to politicians lobbyists and activists who are going to join up with other states and try to dictate Pennsylvania energy policy."
"And this is the key, Pennsylvania has been the energy success story of America, you have led the way in our CO2 reductions if you really cared about CO2 reductions you would be embracing your fracking revolution you would be embracing Pennsylvania's energy legacy instead you're turning it over to a cap and trade carbon taxation scheme that's going to raise the cost of energy for Pennsylvania's have no impact not only on the weather, but it couldn't they won't even impact global CO2 levels in any way shape or form."
"We hear people like John Kerry and others warning of this national security threat of climate change, well what security dread is going to be, then to shoot ourselves and our own foot by hampering domestic energy production in Pennsylvania leading the way with fracking. What's that gonna mean we're going to rely on foreign sources of energy, we're going to have to go back to fighting Middle East wars to get oil and energy when there's no reason to when we're energy dominant for the first time since Harry Truman was president."
John Kerry: "I can tell you, we’re not getting done even what we promised in Paris.”
“And even if we did everything that was promised in Paris, the earth’s temperature’s still going to rise to 3.7 degrees Fahrenheit [sic],” Kerry continued. “But because we’re not doing anything, we’re actually heading to [a rise of] 4.1, 4.5 degrees today. It’s beyond catastrophic.”
"As Europe’s economies are in full lockdown, industries facing total collapse are desperately calling on the EU to water down or at least delay costly climate policies. In this crisis it is becoming evident that the Green Deal is an existential threat to Europe’s economies and the wellbeing of the general public rather than a benefit." -- Global Warming Policy Forum, 4 April 2020
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."
