China now produces more than half of the world’s cement and in recent years it makes in just two years as much of it as did the United States during the entire 20th century. ... Despite cement, steel, plastics, and ammonia being so different, they have three things in common, Smil says: they can’t be replaced by other things easily, we need more of them than ever, and they all absolutely have to have fossil fuels.
White House National Climate Advisor & former EPA chief Gina McCarthy: "We have solutions that can deliver. We're actually going to do 100 rules this year alone on appliances, just like you asked. We are developing partnerships on how we work together for new building standards, even for sustainable airlines. Who'd a thunk that they'd be all in, but they better be, or they're gonna be out of here."
Climate Depot's Morano comment: "Welcome the Dystopia USA 2022. The very last thing Americans need right now is a regulatory ambush of 100 additional climate 'rules' that would impact every major home appliance but do absolutely nothing for the climate. After years of COVID lockdowns, mask and vaccine mandates, skyrocketing energy costs and now war, U.S. businesses do not need mandated government 'partnerships' to meet mythical climate 'standards.' The Biden administration's attempt to force so-called 'sustainable airlines' on the public -- or else -- is not a sane path forward."
Power: "Less fertilizer is coming out of Russia. As a result, we're working with countries to think about natural solutions like manure and compost. And this may hasten transitions that would have been in the interest of farmers to make eventually anyway...So never let a crisis go to waste."
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.
