Morano: 'We already have Park Service, all sorts of government agencies doing exactly what this program is claiming to do. This is just a big political patronage effort...This is how you do favors in politics, this is how you get loyal voters. And again, this is not something that, that is needed because it's already duplicating what we have.
The real question is given they've gone after hamburger eating and even owning dogs and cats in the climate agenda, are they going to lose the 'R' in 'Climate Corps' and become 'Climate Cops' and start admonishing people, knocking hamburgers out of their mouth at a park or telling them they shouldn't own a pet dog?
This could go in a whole bunch of different ways. But bottom line, this has nothing to do with the climate. It's not going to stop the Biden administration from trying to push the UN Paris Agreement on us. It's just another nonsense, government job instead of actually creating wealth and giving people real opportunities.'
Morano: "It's all going to mean literally all pain for zero gain to the climate. There's no criteria by which they say, Okay, we've now done this, we're going to expect less bad hurricanes, less tornadoes, that's not even on the table. In fact, in 2015, John Kerry and many of the same people with Biden administration declared victory after the UN Paris climate pact was signed and they said this was an unparalleled moment that we've solved the climate crisis. This never ends. This is the starting point for literally a remaking of American society for absolutely no benefit and what I mean by that is it's going to be more reliance on Chinese energy, Chinese mining we're going to offshore emissions. And all we're going to do is impoverish Americans and that's what, that's really what the climate agenda is about it's not going to change the climate at the end of this, that we're not going to have a better climate, there's no, there are no criteria to measure that there's just going to be more climate measures and mandates coming down the line more."
Morano: "This is a redo of the 1970s. Before fossil fuels caused global warming, fossil fuels caused global cooling and the coming ice age in the 1970s! They were worried that our fossil fuel pollution was blocking out the sun creating global dimming and the next ice age and they wanted to put black soot on the artic to melt the ice. They suggested using nuclear energy to melt ice. So they were trying to geoengineer the climate back in the 1970s and here we have come full circle now trying to do it the other way by essentially cooling the planet instead of trying to warm it." ...
They are saying, 'We are being forced to do this risky radical experiment on our planet' and so the implication is if we would only reduce our emissions, 'We need to embrace the Green New Deal. We need to embrace it so we cannot alter and dangerously experiment with our planet.' ...
Some people are terrified to think of Bill Gates as their doctor. But think of Bill Gates controlling Mother Nature. That may be scarier."
Morano: "Ultimately, what it is going to do, it is leading to lower economic growth, which you would intuitively think, why would they want to do that? I have to go chapters in the book “Green Fraud,” Tucker, and why they want low economic growth. They love the lockdowns for this reason. They call it degrowth, planned recessions, this is that first step to transfer private equity, private finance into government hands, and this is a big step."
Morano on Fox and Friends: "This tax increase is looking to be $4 trillion of a federal confiscation of wealth (in spending & tax hikes), and this is going to be part of the Build Back Better plan so in a way it's actually designed to harm, America and Middle America -- because what they're trying to do is essentially level the economy and then build it back up in partially in this green image." ...
"This is, this is in a sense, the progressive dream what's happened with the lockdowns, and then the massive increase in debt, and the massive spending, and now massive tax increases on top of it. What it's doing is it's getting more and more Americans dependent on government, it's going to harm more and more Americans economically which gives a justification for more government aid, more government handouts, more government programs, more powers by the progressive politicians. And they've redefining now infrastructure spending, they're going to talk about redefining infrastructure now to include, pretty much any topic they want and particularly with this it's going to be climate-energy environment."

Marc Morano: "Kerry's the chosen one. He doesn't have to follow the rules, which are being imposed on the rest of us. His work is so important that he has to be exempt from the regulations, we've seen this time and time again in the climate movement. Leonardo DiCaprio his actual quote was he's willing to fly around the world to do what is right to fight. They actually believe that. So that's what John Kerry means. He's that self-important and if you watch the video of his speech there he actually says, he's "suffered from too many airplanes" because he has a hoarse voice and flying too much. So he's actually been bragging about flying too many times, but he has to because it's for the good of the planet."
Monica Medina is a Biden nominee and the wife of White House chief of staff Ron Klain. Monica Medina, the president’s nominee for assistant secretary of the Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Science Affairs, wrote about the "environmental upside" of the pandemic in March 2020 and called for the economy to be restructured around "green" jobs.
Medina: "In the midst of the economic and health tragedy posed by the coronavirus pandemic, there is an unexpected bright side: the marked improvement in our environment as a result of the massive slowdown," Medina and her co-author, Our Daily Planet founder Miro Korenha, wrote in a Washington Post op-ed.
"With that comes a responsibility as well — to recover and rebuild in a way that helps deal with the challenge that will persist once the virus is under control," the pair continued.
Medina and her fellow author wrote that they were fearful that people would hurriedly get back to normal "instead of appreciating what we had been missing in our consumption-driven, plastic- and fossil-fuel-addicted world." ... The authors said that the recovery from COVID-19 pandemic was the time to make "structural changes" to the US economy and society.
