Morano: "In the 1960s and 70s the environmental movement became radicalized and you can go back in the 1970s John Holdren Obama's former science was out there promoting redistribution of wealth in order to fight what he saw as the greatest environmental threat -- the existential threat at that time overpopulation. All they've done is replaced global warming or now climate change with what used to such scares as resource scarcity, overpopulation the Amazon rainforest disappearing scare. It's always a different environmental scare, the same solution."
Phil McDuff: "Climate change is the result of our current economic and industrial system. GND-style proposals marry sweeping environmental policy changes with broader socialist reforms because the level of disruption required to keep us at a temperature anywhere below “absolutely catastrophic” is fundamentally, on a deep structural level, incompatible with the status quo."
American Thinker: "Perry had some conciliatory words for Ms Ocasio-Cortez and other proponents of the Green New Deal, saying that while he might disagree with their means, he hoped they could agree on some of their goals"
"Rick Perry, the Trump administration’s energy secretary, several times at the conference referred to the importance of cutting greenhouse gas emissions through technologies including nuclear power, carbon capture and natural gas to replace coal for power generation."
"Perry is a useful fool in wanting to help the Marxist plotter Occasional Cortex. And wanting to help China reduce its emissions is Children’s Crusade-level wishful thinking." He is a useful fool in wanting to help the Marxist plotter Occasional Cortex...The reason Donald Trump won the Republican nomination in 2016 was because the rest of the field were spineless invertebrates. One of the most spineless was Rick Perry."
