Biden faces calls to declare a ‘climate emergency’ as he heads to Maui – Climate groups & Congressional allies urge him to invoke emergency powers – ‘Enable Biden to take sweeping action to restrain greenhouse gas production’

Many of Biden’s allies in Congress have urged him to invoke emergency powers, which would enable the president to take sweeping action to restrain greenhouse gas production, implement large-scale clean transportation solutions and finance distributed energy projects, among other actions. …

Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.): “The devastation in Maui is a clear sign that the president must declare a climate emergency — now.”

Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.): “This is a crisis and we need to treat it that way. That starts with President Biden declaring a national climate emergency to unlock vast federal resources and emergency powers to help our communities prepare for and recover from these deadly climate disasters.”

National director of the Green New Deal Network: “If there was ever a moment to declare a climate emergency, it is right now.”

If Biden declares a ‘Climate Emergency,’ he would seize 130 new powers – Seeks repeat of COVID-style lockdowns with bypassing of democracy – Morano Responds

Climate Depot’s Morano: ”The Biden administration believes that when democracy fails to achieve its climate goals, it’s time to bypass democracy and Congress and follow the COVID model. Climate activists have lusted after the COVID lockdowns as the model for climate lockdowns. The plan is to declare a ‘climate emergency,’ toss out elected representatives and follow China’s one-party rule model by implementing energy restrictions through the bureaucracy. They don’t need no stinkin’ democracy. Throughout history,emergency declarations have been used and abused to crush freedom.For those who loved how unelected officials ruled our lives under COVID lockdowns, prepare for the attempts to make climate lockdowns permanent. For an idea of what the world would look like under a climate lockdown.”” See:2021 International Energy Agency’s ‘Net-Zero’ report urges, “behavioral changes’ to fight climate: A shift away from private car use‚ upper speed limits’ & thermostat controls; limits on hot water and more!

Morano on Hawaiin fire tragedy: “This happened because of human error all throughout the state — but it’s much easier to blame ‘climate change’ — then they have momentum now to declare a National Climate emergency. If they do declare that, Joe Biden gets 130 new executive powers, which would extend to Mayors and governors, and what a better way to ‘build Back Better’ in Hawaii? They believe that at least some good will come from the fires if we can declare a National Climate Emergency and we can then essentially bypass democracy again like we did in Covid with all these new restrictions.”

Hawaii warned of man-made threat years before lethal wildfire, but activists scream ‘climate’ now By Addison Smith The massive wind-fueled wildfires that killed dozens and scorched Maui to the ground this week are prompting liberal activists to blame climate change and demand President Joe Biden declare a national state of emergency. But a wildfire expert at the University of Hawaii warned years ago that man-made hazards like imported grasses […]

USA Today features U. of Hawaii professor calling Maui wildfire climate link ‘misleading’ – Instead points to ‘unmanaged, nonnative grasslands that have flourished in Hawaii’

USA Today: Clay Trauernicht, a professor of natural resources and environmental management at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, said it would be misleading to simply blame weather and climate for the blazes. Instead, Trauernicht, who noted in 2018 that the area burned annually by wildland fire in Hawaii has quadrupled in recent decades, pointed to unmanaged, nonnative grasslands that have flourished in Hawaii after decades of declining agriculture…‚”Hawaii’s fire problem could be far, far more manageable with adequate support, planning and resources for fuel reduction projects, agricultural land use and restoration and reforestation around communities and the foot of our forests,” he wrote.

Prof. Trauernicht wrote on Twitter: “”Yes many parts of Hawaii are trending towards dryer conditions, BUT the fire problem is mostly attributable to the vast extents of nonnative grasslands left unmanaged by large landowners as we’ve entered a ‘post-plantation era’ starting around the 1990s.”
USA Today: Hawaii Wildfire Management Organization, a non-profit based in Waimea on Hawaii Island‚ “Hawaii has a wildfire problem,” the organization states on its website. “Each year, about 0.5% of Hawaii’s total land area burns each year, equal to or greater than the proportion burned of any other US state. Over 98% of wildfires are human-caused. Human ignitions coupled with an increasing amount of nonnative, fire-prone grasses and shrubs and a warming, drying climate have greatly increased the wildfire problem.”

Maui fires used to push Biden to declare ‘climate emergency’ – Green New Deal Network: ‘How many more lives lost…is Pres. Biden willing to tolerate before he declares a climate emergency & activates politicians to take further climate action?’

USA Today: Kaniela Ing of Green New Deal Network: ‚ “How many more lives lost or families displaced in communities like mine is President Biden willing to tolerate before he declares a climate emergency and activates politicians to take further climate action?”

It’s Official! Climate PSYOP replaces COVID PSYOP – Global ‘boiling’ replaces ‘warming’ – NYT declares end of vacations

The latest news round-up in the Wacky World of Climate

Bjorn Lomborg: Climate alarmists falsely claim the world is literally on fire – Satellites reveal global area burned annually has trended downward in past 2 decades

Lomborg on Global wildfires: For more than two decades, satellites have recorded fires across the planet’s surface. The data are unequivocal: Since the early 2000s, when 3% of the world’s land caught fire, the area burned annually has trended downward. In 2022, the last year for which there are complete data, the world hit a record low of 2.2% burned area…The latest report by the United Nations’ climate panel doesn’t attribute the area burned globally by wildfires to climate change. Instead, it vaguely suggests the weather conditions that promote wildfires are becoming more common in some places. Still, the report finds that the change in these weather conditions won’t be detectable above the natural noise even by the end of the century. …

America wildfires: While the complete data aren’t in for 2023, global tracking up to July 29 by the Global Wildfire Information System shows that more land has burned in the Americas than usual. But much of the rest of the world has seen lower burning- Africa and especially Europe. Globally, the GWIS shows that burned area is slightly below the average between 2012 and 2022, a period that already saw some of the lowest rates of burned area.

Australian Wildfires: Likewise, while Australia’s wildfires in 2019-20 earned media headlines such as ‚””Apocalypse Now”” and “”Australia Burns”” the satellite data show this was a selective narrative. The burning was extraordinary in two states but extraordinarily small in the rest of the country. Since the early 2000s, when 8% of Australia caught fire, the area of the country torched each year has declined. The 2019-20 fires scorched 4% of Australian land, and this year the burned area will likely be even less.

When reading headlines about fires, remember the other climate scare tactics that proved duds. Polar bears were once the poster cubs for climate action, yet are now estimated to be more populous than at any time in the past half-century. We were told climate change would produce more hurricanes, yet satellite data shows that the number of hurricanes globally since 1980 has trended slightly downward.
