“They want to use the COVID lockdown as the model for climate lockdowns,” said Morano of Democrats and the broader left, offering his remarks on Tuesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. Morano noted how the coronavirus outbreak displaced “climate change” as the left’s “ticket to a Soviet-style regulatory state.” Morano recalled how assorted left-wing doomsday narratives from previous decades — including “global cooling” and “overpopulation” — were framed as justifications for implementation of totalitarian central planning and control. “It was all based on the same concept, that everything’s limited, we’re all going to die and and we need to essentially turn our lives over to central planning,” Morano stated. ...
Morano added, “Bill Gates has said the COVID pandemic is nothing compared to how many deaths — the death toll — that’s going to come from climate change. Guess what academics already want to do? They want a provision to add climate change to your death certificate, and this is a very real possibility.”
"Traitors like you and your friends who backed Trump and his goons attacking the Capital are going on the no-fly list anyhow, Halperin wrote to Morano on Twitter.
Morano replied: "I would not be surprised if you are correct. Should I have my utilities shut off and driver's license revoked as well for supporting Trump?" Morano added: "Put me on a no-fly list? Will it matter? If Bill Gates gets his way 99.99 % of humanity will be on no-fly list since all the commercial airlines will have been bankrupted and out of business."
National Catholic Register: The conference nevertheless made unwelcome headlines for the organizers when two climate change skeptics, Lord Christopher Monckton, a former policy adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and Marc Morano, founder of Climate Depot, a non-profit that denies the existence of human-caused climate change, were ejected from the conference after the organizers discovered who they were.
On the September 15 edition of Tucker Carlson Tonight, notorious climate denier Marc Morano did his usual schtick of denying climate change's role in extreme weather events while discussing the California wildfires. He stated, “This is climate ambulance-chasing at its core, weaponizing weather events to say, ‘Look, there's a bad weather event here. We need a green new deal.’ They are using science to lobby for politics: ‘Vote for me and I will make the weather better.’”

Morano: "What they're trying to do, you saw Biden allude to it there with 'Build Back Better.' They're trying to essentially use the COVID lockdown model for the climate emergency model. And they are going to go from COVID lockdowns to climate lockdowns."
"Senator Merkley (D-OR) came out today and is urging a President Joe Biden to declare a national climate emergency which would give him emergency powers that he could bypass democracy, much in the same way that blue-state governors have already done with the COVID lockdowns," Morano said.
Marc Morano, publisher of the skeptical Climate Depot, blasted the legal challenge, saying that “Americans have had it with the government sucking the life and water out of — their lives.”
“After punishing lockdowns in 2020, Americans’ one glimmer of hope was the Trump administration allowing new dishwashers to actually clean our dishes with a speed reminiscent of the machines from our parents’ generation,” Mr. Morano said in an email. “But now, environmentalists led by NRDC can’t even let us have this one soapy pleasure.”
Since the 1980s, 29% of human CO2 emissions were cancelled out by the CO2-induced greening of the Earth. The post-2000 vegetative greening expansion has been so massive (5.4 million km²) its net areal increase is equivalent to a region the size of the Amazon rainforest.
Boris Johnson, Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron, and Narendra Modi will apparently gather in the Netherlands. There, along with Bill Gates, UN head Antonio Guterres, and personnel associated with the European Union, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund, they’ll attend a climate summit hosted by the Global Center on Adaptation. ...
We’re told this summit "will launch a comprehensive Adaptation Action Agenda to kick start a transformational decade."
Donna Laframboise: "The chutzpah is astonishing. The global economy is in tatters. Billions face an uncertain future. Health care workers are exhausted. Yet this Clique of Self-Important People™ is full speed ahead, determined to impose its climate vision on the rest of us."
In the last 500 years only some 80 mammals are recorded as having gone extinct. In his book, More From Less, Andrew McAfee, a board member of HumanProgress.org, discusses how relatively rare recorded extinctions are – with some 530 across all species in the last five centuries. More importantly, he notes, the rate of extinction “appear[s] to have slowed down in recent decades; for example, no marine creatures have been recorded as extinct in the last fifty years.”
Matt Ridley, another board member and frequent contributor to this site, argues that despite the human population doubling in the last half-century, “the extinction rate of wild species, especially in the most industrialized countries,” seems to have fallen rather than increased. While absence of evidence isn’t the same as evidence of absence, and there might be millions of unrecorded species in the world’s oceans and tropical forests, the most aggressive claims rest on shaky foundations.
