Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden continues to fly in private jets and be transported in oversized SUV's despite his call in 2019 to put fossil fuel executives "in jail" for failing to address climate change.
Biden: “We’re all dead" if we don't stop using fossil fuels.
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen likes to compare her Green Deal to “Europe’s man on the moon moment.” That’s almost certainly a galactic understatement. Cutting the Continent’s emissions to “net zero” — meaning Europe would sequester at least as much greenhouse gases as it produces — by 2050 will require a radical overhaul of nearly every aspect of the modern economy. Dramatic cuts in carbon will wipe out entire industries, transform others and force people to change the way they eat, work, live and travel. “Man on the moon was a hobby,” said Vincenzo Balzani, an Italian chemist, emeritus professor at the University of Bologna and author of several books on the transition to a cleaner world. The EU’s ambition to decarbonize Europe, he said, is nothing less than “a proposal to remake civilization.” This is not policymaking on a normal scale. French President Emmanuel Macron calls what follows “the next world.” Polish Climate Minister Michał Kurtyka, president of the 2018 U.N. climate conference, calls it a “civilizational challenge” that will require a “Copernican revolution” to succeed.
Warning labels on climate models for policymakers needed: The sticker should read: “WARNING! This model predicts atmospheric warming roughly 7 times larger than observed trends. Use of this model for anything other than entertainment purposes is not recommended.”
WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus during a news conference from the agency's Geneva headquarters:
"In particular, the Covid-19 pandemic has given new impetus to the need to accelerate efforts to respond to climate change. The Covid-19 pandemic has given us a glimpse of our world as it could be: cleaner skies and rivers."
Marc Morano comments: "You were warned, COVID & Climate - A marriage made in authoritarianism. The morphing of the public health bureaucracy and the climate establishment is at hand. Nothing good can come from this arranged marriage."
Brian C. Joondeph, M.D., is a Denver-based physician: "Both the climate and COVID movements share these features – hypocrisy and hysteria, models and money, fear and false prophets, and inevitability. This is also how dictatorships begin."
"Six months of lockdowns, mandates, and restrictions previously unfathomable in a free society"
"One can see numerous parallels between COVID and climate policy. Both create fear, to a frenzy level, of the world ending, massive death and destruction, all due to a warming planet or an aggressive flu virus. If we don’t wear a mask, we are murderers and should be imprisoned. If we don’t believe in man-made global warming, we should also be locked away in jail...Question the dogma of either the virus or climate movement and prepare to have your life, if not disrupted, then ruined. There is only one politically correct viewpoint on both issues."
"Both global warming and the Wuhan flu rely on models. Many climate models predicted rising sea levels and flooded cities, along with catastrophic storms, none of which has materialized. Virus models predicted 2.2 million U.S. deaths, only to be scaled down as reality was nowhere close to the predictions. Both relied on flawed models and failed to adjust their prognostications accordingly. ..."
"Climate and COVID share the commonality of government control. From electric car and fuel efficiency mandates to the entire economy busting Green New Deal, the “benevolent” government seeks to control all aspects of our lives."
