Morano: "This would be a California joke if these policies stayed in California, this was self-inflicted. They did this to themselves...This is a utopian vision, gone bad with reality -- that reality bites. Utopia is no more. California's self-inflicted energy wounds are here for all to see. And it's following Green New Deal policies. ... What they do is they basically say we'll mandate it and then magically, it's going to happen. And now we're seeing not just California. We have the dystopian vision of Europe being ahead of even California down the Green New Deal path. And we have there the EU that had now just come out and said we need to flatten the energy curve to flatten the demand curve in order to meet our energy demands. This is getting a weird dystopian COVID feel.
I wrote about this in my book, The Great Reset. They're imposing COVID-style restrictions on energy now because they've created this based on the Green New Deal ideology. This is a frightening situation when Europe is facing a physical lack of energy. ... They are talking about people fearing a return to primitivism. They're talking about Europe, fearing winter like they did before the Industrial Revolution. Seniors on fixed incomes face danger. Remember cold kills much more than warm and that's what we're facing. ...
So let's review: They've created massive food shortages with this NetZero Green New Deal-style policies. They're shutting down farmers in the Netherlands, Canada, and Australia. They're creating new car shortages. They're trying to mess up by transportation and they're creating energy shortages. This is all based on ideology -- a superstition -- that if we shut down energy, modern energy will have less hurricanes somehow in the future. And Europe is going to be the test case. And it's looking very grim right now because they don't have the infrastructure and they're desperate right now for energy."
The last person to leave California can turn the lights off -- Oh, never mind.
While Newsom soaks up the glory of reducing in-state oil production, he seems oblivious to the data from his own California Energy Commission chart that any grade school student can easily observe. The crude oil demands of the state are being met be continuing to increase imported crude oil from foreign sources to meet the demands of the state. The same countries that are halfway around the world, with significantly less environmental controls, that ship their oil via polluting tankers to California ports.
