Why did the EU invite the young Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg to speak in Brussels instead of the Nobel Prize winning climate economist William Nordhaus? That question is answered in an essay entitled Undue Climate Haste, which the CLINTEL Foundation is publishing today. The essay concludes: “The main message of this essay is that we are in no hurry and that panic is unwarranted. Climate change always deserves our attention, but the idea that we need to turn our energy supply upside down right now appears to be driven by emotion rather than reason.”
Greta Thunberg: "Today, up to 75 of diseases come from animals. As we are cutting down forests and destroying habitats, we are creating the ideal conditions for diseases to spill over from one animal to another and then to us." - "We can no longer separate the health crisis from the ecological crisis. And we cannot separate the ecological crisis from the climate crisis. It's all interlinked in many ways."
Climate Depot's Morano: "Consider yourself warned: COVID & Climate – a marriage made in authoritarianism. The morphing of the public health bureaucracy and the climate establishment is at hand. Nothing good can come from this arranged marriage. “Build back better” is code for the “Great Reset.” Are we supposed to believe tyranny is the only option available or else we all die in the pandemic?!"
NY Post's Miranda Devine: "Greta brings the new World Narrative: It’s not China’s fault they released a deadly virus. It’s all climate change. Therefore, America must hobble its economy to prevent future pandemics."
