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."

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.
Time Mag: Global food production accounts for one-third of all greenhouse-gas emissions, according to a comprehensive study published this year in the journal Nature Food that looked at every aspect of food production from transportation to packaging. Meat production alone makes up nearly 60% of that total. The study underscores the growing consensus that in order to stave off the worst impacts of climate change, the world needs a dramatic rethinking of how food is produced and consumed...
Increasingly, companies and scientists are viewing insects as an environmentally sustainable alternative source of protein. Crickets, grasshoppers and beetles are already commercially produced and processed for human and animal consumption. Ynsect, a 10-year-old French company, is focused on mealworms, the larval stage of beetles.
Ynsect co-founder and CEO Antoine Hubert: "We are not far from reaching tipping points where then things get worse and it cascades and waterfalls—you can’t stop it anymore. Time is very critical...There is a huge need to reduce our consumption of beef. We should keep beef consumption, grazing, on a smaller scale with high levels of fresh products. But everything that is a processed meat should be 100% replaced at some point by alternatives. Insects will be a part of the answer."
