Morano: "We had an unprecedented situation this is in human history once free West overnight shut churches, gyms, schools, businesses, curfews, stay at home orders, weddings, funerals, -- but hey Walmart was open. And and big Tech profit skyrocketed. We created a new billionaire every 30 hours. It was the greatest transfer of wealth from poor and middle class to the wealthy. We're still under a 9 11 emergency power act that led to the creation of the Patriot Act which gave us the surveillance State against our own citizens. Then you have COVID added & we're still under the COVID emergency years later. Joe Biden keeps extending it. Joe Biden now wants to add a climate emergency declaration according to Associated Press that would give him 130 new executive powers. The Scottish government has been trying to make the pandemic powers permanent and we now have medical associations ensuring doctors can't even do research or recommendations that are contrary to Public Health...They're intentionally collapsing our energy our food our transportation and our free speech and once they collapse it that creates chaos then they claim the free market failed and now there's a whole movement afoot to nationalize everything I just mentioned, food, energy, transportation, seeking a government takeover."
"In order to get this nomination without a fight, [Biden] had to cede climate and energy over to the Bernie Sanders/AOC wing – and people like AOC are actually writing all of this. Biden is merely a figurehead when it comes to this," he tells OneNewsNow.
"It's not like [Democrats are saying] 'Bernie Sanders didn't win, so we're going to get a more rational climate policy.' No – Biden has essentially ceded his control over this policy to that extremist climate emergency wing of the Democrats."
Climate change skeptic, author and publisher of ClimateDepot.com Marc Morano agrees: “Given Biden’s general detachment and befuddlement on most issues these days, AOC and Sanders will have a huge influence on any Biden administration.” Morano, who is a producer of the upcoming film Climate Hustle 2, told American Wire that Ocasio-Cortez brings some heavy baggage to the campaign trail. “AOC has pushed for American workers to refuse to go back to work to protest the American economic system,” Morano said.
Democrats agree with Ocasio-Cortez; they see the COVID-19 economic shutdown as an opportunity to change the American way of life permanently. If that seems far-fetched, consider what Washington state governor Jay Inslee said in a video addressing Sanders followers:
“We should not be intimidated when people say, ‘Oh you can’t use this COVID crisis to peddle a solution to climate change’ — no we have to recognize the necessity of this moment.”
Morano points out that Ocasio-Cortez also sees the COVID-19 crisis as an open backdoor for environmental extremists: “But the greatest threat to America from AOC’s influence with Biden may be to extend and expand government lockdowns to deal with the alleged ‘climate emergency.’”
Via Oxford Mail: People can drive freely around their own neighbourhood and can apply for a permit to drive through the filters, and into other neighbourhoods, for up to 100 days per year. This equates to an average of two days per week. The alternative is to drive out on to the ring road and then back in to the destination. A maximum of three permits a household will be allowed where there are several adults with cars registered to the address.
"Why are we introducing trial traffic filters? Across our county, we want to reduce unnecessary journeys by private vehicles and make walking, cycling, public and shared transport the natural first choice. This will help us deliver an affordable, sustainable and inclusive transport system that enables the county to thrive whilst protecting the environment and making Oxfordshire a better place to live for all residents."
Dr. Richard Lindzen's new paper: An Assessment of the Conventional Global Warming Narrative - Published by the Global Warming Policy Foundation - September 22, 2022: Climate change is "a quasi-religious movement predicated on an absurd ‘scientific’ narrative. The policies invoked on behalf of this movement have led to the US hobbling its energy system." - "The Earth’s climate has, indeed, undergone major variations, but these offer no evidence of a causal role for CO₂."
"Unless we wake up to the absurdity of the motivating narrative, this is likely only to be the beginning of the disasters that will follow from the current irrational demonization of CO₂."
