Climate Depot founder Marc Morano sounded off to the MRC about Friedman’s nonsense. Morano said Friedman’s article should be headlined, “‘How to Defeat U.S. Energy and Do Nothing to Save the Planet.'” ... Morano tore into Friedman’s “national security” argument and said he “misses the entire point.”
“[T]he U.S. is perfectly capable of plentiful domestic energy production if our industries are not hamstrung over 'climate change' concerns,” Morano said in a Twitter message. “The greatest national security threat we face is the energy policies advocated by Friedman.” Milloy said the “solar and wind” tools are exactly “the same failed technologies that caused the Green New Deal War [in Ukraine] in the first place. No thanks, Tom.”
Morano: "We have a situation where we’re in an energy war and the United States -- using cold war terminology -- is engaging in unilateral energy disarmament." ...
"We are limiting domestic energy to make us more dependent on Russia, China, Opec, Venezuela -- take your pick of hostile regimes. It makes no sense why the Biden administration is doing this unless you look at their rhetoric. Biden's Energy Secretary, Granholm said she wants to keep gasoline in the ground because the world’s a flame due to global warming. She sang in a video, a dance, a video singing those very words. Obama's Energy secretary Chu wanted European gas prices in the U.S. This is a long-term intended consequence of Green New Deal-style policies."
It would be “madness” if countries “become so consumed by the immediate fossil fuel supply gap that they neglect or knee-cap policies to cut fossil fuel use,” Guterres said. ... “Addiction to fossil fuels is mutually assured destruction,” he told the conference.
"A Bermuda-based shell company with ties to Russian oil interests transferred $23 million to California group Sea Change Foundation in 2010 and 2011, citing IRS tax documents. Sea Change also reportedly donated money ($100 million) to well-known organizations like the Sierra Club, the Natural Resource Defense Council (NRDC), the League of Conservation Voters (LCV), and the Center for American Progress during those years."
The real significance of the Pandemic Treaty is that its passage is a ratification and approval of everything the world has experienced over the past two years during COVID-19. ... Terrified by this surge of deaths and the psychological terror campaigns deployed by governments on their own people, populations across the western world proceeded to impose an ever-darker swathe of illiberal mandates including forced masking and digital vaccine passes for everyday activities. Young children, who were at virtually no risk from the virus, lost years of primary education, and many were forced to wear masks for hours each day.
By signing onto the Pandemic Treaty, our leaders are signaling their approval for all this—and more—to be done again.
Throughout this “pandemic” we have been fed an unending series of lies, distortions and disinformation by the media, the public health officials, medical bureaucracies (CDC, FDA and WHO) and medical associations.
