Marc Morano comment: "This is more than just 'hypocrisy.' Buttigieg is enamored with the idea of pushing a federal ban on gas-powered cars while he is flying private jets on demand. Bill Gates has pushed COVID lockdown travel restrictions while he flies private jets and made a bid on the world's largest private jet transport company. The climate agenda seeks to restrict travel, food, and energy choices."
Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg might have to start biking to work again like a total nerd. That's because the Mexican-made electric SUV he purchased last year for his security detail is being recalled due to a safety defect that "could result in a loss of power [while driving], which could cause a crash," according to Consumer Reports.
A "more intermediate goal" in the U.S. would be transitioning from monthly car payments to a "monthly transportation payment that's quite a bit less than a car payment that covers everything," said Buttigieg.
Morano: "When you go and plug in your electric car and you pat yourself on the back for being nice and green, you're powering that battery, you're recharging that battery with fossil fuels. That's the first thing, and that doesn't even bring into how they put the batteries together.
All the rare earth mining is giving China the world monopoly on this. China is buying up Africa. They're going in places like Congo, where 70% of the world's cobalt. They are using underage labor. They're using Uyghur slaves in China. They are the ones we have to turn to and they are making us more reliant on them to dig up the Earth without our higher environmental standards. We're outsourcing our pollution to get electric cars that run and recharge on fossil fuels. It makes no environmental sense in that regard."
Marc Morano - Fox and Friends - Fox News Channel - Broadcast August 6, 2021: Morano: "They don't want an up or down vote on the Green New Deal in Congress, so they are slipping it into the 'infrastructure' bill. Most Americans are not even aware that the Green New Deal is being stealthily implemented." ...
"We are trading American energy dominance for dependence on China for rare earth mining. The Biden Administration talk about climate change allegedly being a great national security threat. But their climate policy is our greatest national security threat." ...
"This is going from bad, bad and worse. The Biden administration is virtually signally to damage American national security. We are now transforming America based on a climate scare and they are doing it by stealth means, by hiding it in infrastructure and doing it through executive orders." ...
"The administrative state is behind the scenes, transforming America without an up or down vote by Congress on what they are really doing."
"Basically what you have here is all of the different pulleys and levers of the federal government working in the same direction to a very ambitious and urgently needed goal," Buttigieg told CNBC on August 5. "Industry is stepping up and recognizing that there is a business as well as a moral imperative to do something," Buttigieg said. Buttigieg revealed how the federal government would impose "enforceable targets" and gloated that that "aspirations" and "regulations come together" to help fight climate change. Buttigieg said it was necessary for "a nationwide whole society effort to do what we need to do for our climate but also for our economy."
Daily Wire: Cricket powder will now be permitted in a number of food products, such as multigrain bread, crackers, cereal bars, biscuits, beer-like beverages, chocolates, sauces, whey powder, soups, and other items “intended for the general population,” according to the new regulation. Cricket One, a company that asserts that the insects are “nutritionally more efficient” and serve as a more reliable “source of alternative protein” than livestock, submitted the original application.
The New York Allergy and Sinus Centers has nevertheless found that “several allergic reactions to crickets” have been reported in the past two years. Individuals allergic to shellfish such as shrimp, crabs, and lobsters “may develop an allergy to crickets” because the species share many of the same proteins. ... Proposals for the increased consumption of crickets and other insects occur as many policymakers voice concern about the impact of meat production on climate change.
