CFACT’s Marc Morano gave a rousing speech addressing “Degraded Science and the Coming Great Reset.” Morano pulled headlines and quotes from mainstream media outlets that advocate for climate lockdowns that mimic covid lockdowns in the name of “saving the planet.” Under a climate lockdown, Morano explained, there would be little to no air travel, no new clothing, no private property, no meat eating, and of course, no use of traditional, reliable fossil fuel energy.
“If you’ve loved the last year and a half living under covid lockdowns, you’ll LOVE the coming climate lockdowns,” Morano quipped.
"Is it really such a stretch to think that a lockdown could be imposed (once again crashing the economy) to drastically cut emissions while we await the widespread availability of 'affordable' electric cars and charging stations? And even if it’s not something as drastic as a total lockdown, there could be a ban on 'nonessential travel' with hefty fines for driving anywhere except to your job, the grocery store or the doctor’s office. From there you can easily imagine an order limiting the sale or purchase of red meats or other unapproved foods.
Beyond that, the possibilities showing up on liberal wishlists are nearly endless. Driving to vote may be declared an unnecessary consumption of fossil fuels, so all voting could be mandated to be done by mail. Home air conditioning could be deemed too much of a risk to the environment. (It’s already been suggested.) And all of this could be done without a single elected representative ever casting a vote. Since it’s an 'emergency,' executive orders can handle the whole thing."
CNN: Further corruption of public health orgs: More than 230 medical journals warn (made-up number of) 1.5°C of 'global warming' could be 'catastrophic' for health - (Despite 99% drop in climate-related deaths since 1920!) - Human health is already being harmed by the climate crisis, and the impacts could become catastrophic and irreversible unless governments do much more to address global warming, the editors of more than 230 medical journals said in a joint editorial Monday..Among them are an increase in heat deaths, dehydration and kidney function loss, skin cancer, tropical infections, mental health issues, pregnancy complications, allergies, and heart and lung disease, and deaths associated with them..."Despite the world's necessary preoccupation with Covid-19, we cannot wait for the pandemic to pass to rapidly reduce emissions," the authors wrote, calling on governments to respond to the climate crisis with the same spirit of "unprecedented funding" dedicated to the pandemic.
Canadian PM Justin Trudeau on August 31, 2021: "What we learned from this climate -- this uh COVID crisis, we will be applying to the climate crisis, the housing crisis, to reconciliation, to making sure that everyone has good jobs and careers that carry them through and create good opportunity for their kids," said Trudeau to a mixed crowd of supporters and protestors in Cambridge, Ontario.
2021 Scare: "Imagine seeing the Lincoln Memorial surrounded by churning Potomac waters, or only being able to access the Pentagon by boat...The Pentagon, accessible by boat...The Lincoln Memorial would eventually be on an island in the Potomac River, if world keeps burning fossil fuels."
In his 2019 memoir, A Promised Land, he admits to the unfortunate optics of his trip to the 2009 UN global summit on climate change in Copenhagen. “Has anyone ever considered,” he reportedly asked an aide on the flight to Copenhagen, “the amount of carbon dioxide I’m releasing into the atmosphere as a result of these trips to Europe?” The aide quipped, “You might not want to mention that in your speech tomorrow.” ...
Koonin said atmospheric CO2 will continue to increase whatever draconian solutions governments impose on their citizens, with the poor everywhere suffering most. A fan of mankind, Koonin believes that adaptation to a gradual global warming will allow us to prosper. “This is not at all an unmitigated disaster as people would have you believe,” said Koonin. “We’ll learn to take advantage of whatever changes happen rather than simply tolerate them. That’s what humans do, and we’re pretty good at it.”
