Gov. Cuomo: “Just like we did with COVID, New York is going to lead the nation once again with a comprehensive approach to combating and preventing gun violence..."
Democrats have dropped hints that they might use various “public health” emergency declarations as an excuse to grasp power and circumvent the normal legislative process. Democrats have filed a bill to declare a national emergency on climate, for example.
Reacting to a public health official from New Zealand who suggested that lockdowns could be used for other diseases or climate change, Marc told Ezra:
This is a lady who is like their communicator on the COVID restrictions. New Zealand is one of the countries who has this zero COVID [policy]. It truly is a totalitarian policy. It cannot be achieved without practicing totalitarianism. Not only have they practiced it in New Zealand, they've mastered it. They're not just out there practicing getting [ready] for the big game — they've done it. And she actually says in that interview, “in order to be a 'good society'” — in other words, you're a good person, a good society, if you support these endless restrictions.
They are ready, they are poised, they are openly talking about moving it onto climate.
A peer-reviewed study by five lead authors published June 29th in the journal Global Environmental Change:
Slash annual energy use per person from Canada – 232 Gigajoules (GJ), U.S. – 204 GJ, and France 95 – GJ to a very low 27 GJ per year
“Fairer income distribution is crucial for achieving decent living standards at low energy use”
“To reduce existing income disparities, governments could raise minimum wages, provide a Universal Basic Income, and introduce a maximum income”
“We also need much higher taxes on high incomes, and lower taxes on low incomes”
Move from “an animal-based to a plant-based diet”
Move from “individual to collective transport”
Move from “motorized to active” (walking and cycling) travel
“Economic growth beyond moderate levels of affluence is detrimental for aspirations of sustainable development”.
“Degrowth… is an idea whose time has come”
“In short,” the study’s authors sum up, “we need to abandon economic growth in affluent countries, scale back resource extraction, and prioritize public services, basic infrastructures and fair income distributions everywhere.”
Leftists the world over are exploiting the pandemic in order to create their alleged utopias. Vanessa Vallejo, a Colombian activist and columnist explains that
Whenever they come to power, communists work hard to create a clientele network that will vote for them and support them in the future. So instead of looking for real solutions to lift people out of poverty altogether, they offer them subsidies or useless jobs where citizens are dependent on politicians. At the same time, they make life difficult for entrepreneurs, resulting in more and more unemployed people who can be hooked into their clientele network. Many of them will not be able to get subsidies, but plunging them into poverty will make them easy prey to convince so long as the government offers them aid and blames right-wing entrepreneurs and politicians for their misery.
Sound familiar? This is happening all across the United States. The governors of states like Michigan, New York, New Jersey, California, and Pennsylvania continue to hold people hostage to their dictatorial impulses.
Tony Heller of RealClimateScience.com: "This warming trend since 1970 does not exist in the thermometer data, so where does it come from?
There has been a large decrease in the number of stations reporting data over the past 30 years. But in the final adjusted data set, they use temperatures for all 1,218 stations regardless of whether or not there is actually any thermometer data.
In other words, they are simply making up data. More than 40% of the data in the final data set is now fabricated.
NOAA US temperature graphs are completely fraudulent, and they are being adjusted upwards to track CO2.
Many of the world’s leading models are now projecting warming rates that most scientists, including the modelmakers themselves, believe are implausibly fast. In advance of the U.N. report, scientists have scrambled to understand what went wrong and how to turn the models, which in other respects are more powerful and trustworthy than their predecessors, into useful guidance for policymakers. ... Climate models used by next month’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report project more warming over an 1850–1900 baseline than those in a 2013 report. Scientists are using recent observed warming to rein them in.
