"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.’”
James Delingpole review: Climate Hustle 'staged its triumphant world premiere in Paris last night.'
'Climate Hustle is dynamite – at least it will be to most viewers, especially younger ones – because what it says is so totally at odds with almost every documentary, TV programme and film that has ever been made on the subject of global warming.'
'Every person who has ever been exposed to the lies of An Inconvenient Truth should watch Climate Hustle immediately afterwards an antidote.'
Climate Hustle is a 'jaunty, likeable, fact-rich journey through the history of the 'global warming'
'Morano – even if he does look and dress a bit like a junior Mafiosi – makes a funny, engaging, no-nonsense presenter.'
'One of the most powerful sections of the documentary is the one where various scientists and academics who have dared speak the truth about global warming describe how they have suddenly found themselves ostracised by their peers.'
Harvard Mag: These are all important questions—but even they ignore a central certainty that no one appears to be addressing: what Dan Schrag calls “climate change’s dirty little secret.” “Even if we could become carbon-neutral tomorrow,” says the director of the Harvard University Center for the Environment, “the climate will keep changing for thousands of years, the ice sheets will keep melting, and the seas will continue to rise.”
Climate Depot's Marc Morano: "So now an allegedly esteemed Harvard professor admits that controlling the climate is futile. Are we supposed to be surprised at this 'secret' that climate skeptics have always known? Even the climate activists will now have to concede that the climate will not stop changing if we refuse to enact the UN Paris pact and the Green New Deal."
Philip Stott, professor emeritus of Biogeography at the University of London, points out that “climate change is governed by hundreds of factors, or variables, and the very idea that we can manage climate change predictably by understanding and manipulating at the margins one politically-selected factor [CO2], is as misguided as it gets. It's scientific nonsense."
