TOM STEYER: “I will declare a state of emergency on climate on the first day of my presidency. I will use the Executive emergency powers of the presidency to tell companies how they can generate electricity, what kind of cars they can build -- on what schedule, what kind of buildings we’re gonna have, how we are going to use our public lands."
Steyer urges "environmental justice' and warns climate is "a human issue with a huge racial overtone."
"We need to rebuild this country in a climate-smart way...we don't have a choice on this."
Now, she wants energy executives and their political allies to be treated like Nazis and face a “Nuremberg” style trial similar to German dictator Adolf Hitler’s henchmen, who were often given the death penalty at the post-World War II trials.
Host Michael Moynihan said, “So, you want to see sort of a Nuremberg trial for climate criminals?” to which Fonda responded, “Yeah, I would.”
She appeared on the debut of The Impeachment Show on the Viceland, where she said that there’s “literally a ticking time bomb over everything” because of climate change. She claimed “our government is being ruled by fossil fuel” and so “democracy is teetering on the edge of collapse.”
Epstein: "Fossil fuel energy has not taken a naturally safe climate and made it unnaturally dangerous; it’s taken our naturally dangerous climate and made it unnaturally safe."
"The International Disaster Database, a nonpartisan organization that tracks deaths from climate-related causes—such as extreme heat, floods, storms, and drought—shows that such deaths have been plummeting as CO2 emissions have been rising. How is this possible? Because of the fossil fuel energy that emitted the CO2, which has empowered us to climate-proof our environment with heating, air-conditioning, sturdy buildings, mass irrigation, and weather warning systems. Fossil fuel energy has not taken a naturally safe climate and made it unnaturally dangerous; it’s taken our naturally dangerous climate and made it unnaturally safe. Fossil fuels are not an existential threat. They are an existential resource because they increase something much more important than the level of CO2 in the atmosphere: the level of human empowerment. Increased life expectancy, income, health, leisure time, and education are all tightly linked to increased access to fossil fuels.
Morano: 'As I testified to Congress, to the House Western Caucus yesterday, by the way, AOC was supposed to show up, but she backed out at the last minute. This Green New Deal is all about the left's agenda since the 1960s and they're using environmental scares to impose it. We originally started with the same -- these exact same solutions on overpopulation. Now it's global warming. And that's all it is. They talk openly, the climate activists, about planned recessions in order to fight global warming, de-growth. And the Green New Deal is nothing but a planned recession and de-growth -- a permanent planned recession.'
“In the deal, what we talk about, and it’s true, is that we need to take a look at factory farming, you know? Period. It’s wild,” Ocasio-Cortez said, according to Fox News. “And so it’s not to say you get rid of agriculture, it’s not to say we’re gonna force everybody to go vegan or anything crazy like that. But it’s to say, ‘Listen, we gotta address factory farming. Maybe we shouldn’t be eating a hamburger for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Like, let’s keep it real.’” “But we have to take a look at everything,” the ultra-left-wing pol continued, “and what we need to realize about climate change is about every choice that we make in our lives, you know?”
“America’s ruling class is freaking out about [Ocasio-Cortez’s] proposal to redistribute wealth and power from the people on top to the people on the bottom,” Waleed Shahid tweeted Tuesday, referring to a Fox News segment on the “Green New Deal.”
Monica Medina is a Biden nominee and the wife of White House chief of staff Ron Klain. Monica Medina, the president’s nominee for assistant secretary of the Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Science Affairs, wrote about the "environmental upside" of the pandemic in March 2020 and called for the economy to be restructured around "green" jobs.
Medina: "In the midst of the economic and health tragedy posed by the coronavirus pandemic, there is an unexpected bright side: the marked improvement in our environment as a result of the massive slowdown," Medina and her co-author, Our Daily Planet founder Miro Korenha, wrote in a Washington Post op-ed.
"With that comes a responsibility as well — to recover and rebuild in a way that helps deal with the challenge that will persist once the virus is under control," the pair continued.
Medina and her fellow author wrote that they were fearful that people would hurriedly get back to normal "instead of appreciating what we had been missing in our consumption-driven, plastic- and fossil-fuel-addicted world." ... The authors said that the recovery from COVID-19 pandemic was the time to make "structural changes" to the US economy and society.
