Lockdown 2.0: The "Switch Off Putin"RePlanet report: “We propose bans on all business flights, private jets and internal flights within Europe to save oil, and bans also on car use within cities,” the report's authors said. “This should be combined with free public transport.”
"In some ways, the speed of the change will resemble the Covid lockdowns," the report noted, adding, "as, with Covid lockdowns, social pressure to abide by national restrictions will also play a big part."
Morano: "This 'Switch Off Putin' report is serving as Putin’s revenge on the West, allowing the once free West to destroy itself under the false guise of hurting — Putin."
Alberta Premier Jason Kenny: “If President Biden had not vetoed Keystone XL project, it would be done later this year – 840,000 barrels of democratic energy that could have displaced the 600,000 plus barrels of Russian conflict oil that’s filled with the blood of Ukrainians.”
Morano on Fox News Channel's Tucker Carlson Tonight: "They know the Green New Deal won't pass...The solution to the Russian invasion is the same solution to climate change, it happened to be the same solution to COVID too -- which is more working from home, less driving, less freedom, more restrictions on your liberty. Regardless of the crisis, it always empowers the administrative state, the bureaucrats, and those in power. ...
They are going to rule by emergency declaration, by crisis management. This is how they want to do it. The COVID emergency declaration gave us, particularly in blue states, some red states, every governor became a dictator virtually overnight as they imposed whatever mandate they felt like. Whether it was masks, kids, vaccine passports, you name it, they could do it because they were empowered."
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky: "Green technologies and green energy have become a logical and just answer." ... “Long before this war, it was clear that humanity should reduce the use of fossil fuels,” he said. “The era of coal and oil has caused huge damage to the environment, to our planet as a whole. Green technologies and green energy have become a logical and just answer to this challenge.”
Climate Depot's Morano: "This 'green' energy push will only switch Europe's dependence from Russia to China."
Democratic Senate Whip Dick Durbin: "I think it is completely wrong for us to blame President Biden and his efforts to stop Putin and say these are the reasons why we're having inflation in this country, there are many other factors, other countries are going through the same inflation."
"We have to be sensible about what my friend [GOP Sen.] John Barrasso calls the 'climate elitists.' We are fighting and waging a war against climate change. It is a war that will decide what America will look like and what the world will look like for the next generation. Let's take both of those seriously," Durbin said.
IEA report 'A 10-Point Plan to Cut Oil Use' excerpts: "Reducing highway speed limits by about 6 miles per hour; more working from home; street changes to encourage walking and cycling; car-free Sundays in cities and restrictions on other days; cutting transit fares; policies that encourage more carpooling; cutting business air travel; and more." ... "Governments have all the necessary tools at their disposal to put oil demand into decline in the coming years, which would support efforts to both strengthen energy security and achieve vital climate goals." ...
Restricting private cars’ use of roads in large cities to those with even number-plates some weekdays and to those with odd-numbered plates on other weekdays
Car-free Sundays in cities: Banning the use of private cars on Sundays
'Tax' SUVs: "Sales of SUVs also keep increasing...policies to address the rise in sales of such vehicles – such as specific registration and road taxes – are key." ...Ban installation of new oil boilers
Climate Depot's Morano: "COVID 2.0 has arrived?! The 2022 International Energy Agency's (IEA) report sounds an awful lot like an energy version of COVID lockdowns. Instead of opening America back up for domestic energy production, we are told to suffer and do with less and are prescribed the same failed lockdown-style policies we endured for COVID. It is odd how COVID 'solutions' also allegedly helped the climate and now the same solutions are being touted to deal with Russia's invasion of Ukraine. As a bonus, IEA tells us these measures will also help 'achieve vital climate goals.' Let's simplify this: The proposed 'solutions' to climate change, COVID, and now the Russian war are all exactly the same -- hammer the poor and middle class with more restrictions on travel, less freedom, and even more surrendering of power to unelected government regulators.

Morano: In terms of the substance of what Kerry said, It is very simple physics, science, engineering. When you go green and follow Green New Deal-style policies for a decade and more as Europe has done, you find yourself with massive dependency on hostile regimes like Russia, OPEC, Iran, China. ... The media is now bragging, if you will, that people aren't going to be able to afford steaks and hamburgers, you won't be able to travel in your SUV. Gee, all that sort of dovetails exactly with the climate agenda. You'd almost think that the climate activists and John Kerry and the Biden administration aren't that upset that Americans and Europeans are getting hammered with this situation right now. And you'd have to look at their history to find out they're really not upset. These are the intended consequences of green New Deal-style policies."
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.
