- Watch: Morano on Fox & Friends rips Biden Energy Sec. for wanting USA to ‘learn’ from China – Ruling class ‘lusted after China’s one-party authoritarian rule’
Fox and Friends - Fox News Channel - Broadcast March 12, 2023
Rachel Campos-Duffy: Here to react publisher at ClimateDepot.com and author of The Great Reset, Marc Morano. Marc, tell me why we have our Energy Secretary touting China as the example on climate change and environmentalism.
Morano: "This is right out of a Seinfeld episode. This is Bizarro World. It's the exact opposite of what you would expect. China, which is literally 50% of the world's coal production. China, which brags, 'oh, we're doing solar, wind'. They're building solar and wind using rare earth mining, using human rights violations, using the worst environmental standards around the world, in order to sell to the West, not to use themselves. Their percentage of solar and wind is tiny. So the idea that we're supposed to be modeled after them kind of reminds me that [Biden Energy Sec. Sec. Granholm] not talking about in energy, or is she talking about politically? ...
We all modeled ourselves after China when it came to the lockdowns. We copied what China was doing with COVID lockdowns with World Health Organization, and the rest of the world like lemmings jumped off a cliff. ... Our ruling class, academia, and media elites, have done nothing but praise China. They've lusted after China's one-party authoritarian rule...And here's what the kicker is. The COVID lockdowns gave the once-free West the opportunity to finally have what they dreamed of: Chinese one-party-style authoritarian rule as the most consequential decisions of our lifetime -- whether we go to school, work, church, weddings, funerals medical care, stay-at-home orders -- were decided without an ounce of democracy, it was all done to emergency decree. This is what our power-hungry politicians love. So when I hear Jennifer Granholm praising China, I know it's not for environmentalism that makes no sense. I think it's for their politics and their politics of absolute control because that's where we're all moving. In the once-free West. That's what we're copying now."
- Biden Energy Sec. Granholm declares U.S. can ‘learn from what China is doing’ on climate change – Claims China ‘very sensitive’ to world’s climate needs
Energy Sec. Jennifer Granholm:" I think China has done — has been very sensitive and has actually invested a lot in their solutions to achieve their goals." "So we’re — we’re hopeful that, you know, we can all learn from what China is doing." Granholm added that the amount of money China is investing "in clean energy is actually, you know, encouraging." ... The secretary's statement regarding China comes after the country recently hit its coal-production record in 2022.

Energy Sec. Granholm on CNN: “What we’re saying is today we need that supply increased,” she said. “Of course, in five or ten years — actually in the immediate — we are also pressing on the accelerator, if you will, to move toward clean energy, so that we don’t have to be under the thumb of petro-dictators like Putin, or at the whim of the volatility of fossil fuels. Ultimately American will be most secure when we can rely on our own clean domestic production of energy through solar, through wind —”
CNN host John Berman: “But that’s the problem for these companies,” interrupted Berman. “These companies are saying, ‘You’re asking me to do more now, invest more now, when, in fact 5 or 10 years from now, we don’t think that demand will be there, and the administration doesn’t even necessarily want it to be there.’”

‘Climate Homicide’: New paper in Harvard Env. Law Review calls for ‘prosecuting’ big U.S. oil firms for ‘climate deaths’
UK Guardian: Authors of paper accepted for publication in Harvard Environmental Law Review argue firms are ‘killing members of the public at an accelerating rate’
Climate Homicide: Prosecuting Big Oil For Climate Deaths - Harvard Environmental Law Review, Vol. 48, No. 1, 2024
‘Climate homicide’: Could Big Oil be sued for disaster deaths? ‘Prosecuting Big Oil for Climate Death’ urges new paper in the Harvard Environmental Law Review - The paper, “Climate Homicide: Prosecuting Big Oil for Climate Death” — written by Arkush and Donald Braman, an associate professor at George Washington University Law School — will be published next spring in the Harvard Environmental Law Review. “We concluded there aren't really any legal or factual barriers to prosecution,” Arkush said.
Climate Depot's Marc Morano Response: "The wacky world of climate change strikes again! Blaming fossil fuel companies for 'climate homicide' is all part of the plan to merge public health and climate change. We have already seen a doctor diagnose the first patient in the world as suffering form 'climate change' in 2021." See: B.C. doctor clinically diagnoses patient as suffering from ‘climate change’ – ‘Picked up his patient’s chart & penned in the words ‘climate change’
Morano: "Climate change concerns are also limiting medical treatments for patients. We have seen calls for cancer treatments to be cognizant of its 'carbon footprint' and efforts to restrict anesthesia based on climate concerns. We already have academics demanding that 'climate change' be added to death certificates as a cause of death." See: Calls to add ‘climate change’ to death certificates – New study demands ‘climate change’ be added as ‘pre-existing condition’
Morano: "Of course, the reality is exactly the opposite. During the era of fear about 'global warming,' climate-related deaths have dropped dramatically, proving that mankind has adapted to climate change by using the very oil and other fossil fuels that Harvard Law now wants to charge companies with murder over!" See: After 100 years of climate change, ‘climate-related deaths’ approach zero – Dropped by over 99% since 1920
Analysis: The UN’s Newest Climate Report Is A Woke Dumpster Fire Masquerading As Science – ‘Climate justice…Equity & Inclusion…Redistributive policies’
MICHAEL BASTASCH: Variations of the words “equity” and “inequity” appear 31 times in the 36-page (summary) document. Variations of “inclusive” and “inclusion” appear 17 times. The document even mentions “colonialism” and repeatedly refers to climate and social “justice” for “marginalized” groups. ... The UN report also contains an entire section titled “Equity and Inclusion,” which states “[e]quity remains a central element in the UN climate regime.” The report goes on to state that “[r]edistributive policies … that shield the poor and vulnerable, social safety nets, equity, inclusion and just transitions, at all scales can enable deeper societal ambitions and resolve trade-offs with sustainable development goals.” ... The report’s accompanying press release is quite explicit about its goal: “Taking the right action now could result in the transformational change essential for a sustainable, equitable world.” ...
The release goes on to quote one of the report’s authors, who says: “Climate justice is crucial because those who have contributed least to climate change are being disproportionately affected.”
