Plus: AOC & Sanders Seek Congressional Resolution on 'Climate Emergency'
Flashback 2004: Al Gore first tries to popularize 'Climate Emergency': Al Gore: "The phrase 'climate emergency' is intended to convey what it conveys – that this is a crisis with an unusual sense of urgency attached to it, and we should see it as an emergency...So when I use the phrase climate emergency, I have partly in mind the fact that this is happening right now. And it carries with it, unless we do something, catastrophic consequences for all civilization."
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Bernie Sanders will introduce Tuesday a resolution declaring a climate change emergency, a move that comes after the Green New Deal failed to take off the ground earlier this year. The resolution, also co-sponsored by Oregon Rep. Earl Blumenauer, will call for a wide-scale mobilization to combat the emergency and restore the climate “for future generations.”
“The global warming caused by human activities,” claims the draft resolution, according to the Mother Jones magazine, “has resulted in a climate emergency that … demands a national, social, industrial, and economic mobilization of the resources and labor of the United States at a massive-scale.”
Patrick Marsh, a Storm Prediction Center meteorologist, reported that outbreaks of 50 or more tornadoes really aren’t uncommon, having happened 63 times in U.S. history. There are even three instances of more than 100 twisters in single years. Roy Spencer reminds us once again not to conflate three decade or- longer climate cycles with seasonal weather which naturally varies from year to year. He writes, "The alarmist claims of AOC, Gore, and Sanders are not just speculative; they are opposed by our observations and by meteorological theory."
“The science is clear, climate change is making extreme weather events, including tornadoes, worse,” the independent Vermont senator said in a Facebook post linking to an EcoWatch article on the tornado. “We must prepare for the impacts of climate change that we know are coming. The full resources of the federal government must be provided to these families. Our thoughts are with the people of Alabama and their families.”

Morano: "Beyonce, Jay Z, Katie Perry -- and Bernie. What do they all have in common? The Hillary Clinton campaign all paid them to fly around in private jets. Bernie Sanders has made his career out of calling for keeping fossil fuels in the ground. The problem is he can't keep from using fossil fuels lavishly -- in the air!
This is rank hypocrisy on the level that only Al Gore could compete. Outside of Al Gore, in electoral politics, Bernie was the guy as the number one 'climate guru' ... and he just can't keep himself out of these private jets. They're eating themselves here. You rarely ever see climate activists on the left pointing fingers and going after each other for hypocrisy. Usually it's climate skeptics and others pointing out the hypocrisy. It is a rare moment."

Study by UN IPCC lead author Michael Oppenheimer claimed that "global warming" will lead to "mass migration to the U.S." due to alleged future lower crop yields in Mexico by 2080
Climate activist Bill McKibben in the LA times claimed that the influx of immigration to the U.S. will REDUCE "global warming" because the new immigrants "would have fewer children" and as a bonus the new immigrants would be LESS likely to "pull the [election] lever for climate deniers."
