Morano: "It is sad. They had a die-in for the kids, Greta Thunberg, went to the White House. They had kids lying down at the White House Gates 11 minutes to symbolize 11 years the planet is death. Unless government saves it to legislate storms and weather. That is really dark day for the movement when they turn to kids like this as human shields."
Morano: "If you really want to protest climate, do something challenging. Why would you skip school? That’s an easy thing for kid to do. Give up social media for a couple days. Give up your iPhone and tablet. See how long they go without social media that would be a protest that would be worthy.”
Critics say it shows that Thunberg's trip is not really about reducing carbon. "It's nothing more than virtue signaling," said Marc Morano, publisher of Climate Depot, a website that's skeptical about the impact of climate change.

Morano: "Bernie doesn’t want to be outdone by an upstart like AOC. He is coming out with his more aggressive, more expensive, more sweeping plan. So now the burden is back on AOC is she going to come back and compete with Bernie here" I don’t know, Bernie is now the king of the Green New Deals."
Morano: "The Green New Deal is nothing more than the same solutions they were peddling in the 1960s and 70s for the overpopulation scare for the resource scare with limited resources. All of that is the same exact solution. They're using is global warming as the latest environmental scare to have the same solutions of wealth redistribution, sovereignty, limiting treaties, and massive intervention is central planning.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, when he was governor in a video address to the state he told Californian's they should air-dry their clothes for six months on the clothesline -- for six months in order to reduce their carbon footprint. At the same time, he was flying a daily jet to the governor's mansion to his house.
16-year old climate activist Greta Thunberg is taking a yacht across the Atlantic because she doesn’t want to fly. First of all, the yacht is made out of carbon fiber. But they are going to have to fly the crew back to you Europe. There are going to be all sorts of flights associated with her voyage, but the symbolism of her on a yacht is all that matters. It's all they care about.
