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.

President Biden is considering declaring a national climate emergency as soon as this week as he seeks to salvage his environmental agenda in the wake of stalled talks on Capitol Hill, according to three people familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the private deliberations.


Citing the impasse, Merkley added: “This also unchains the president from waiting for Congress to act.”


Some climate activists have urged the White House in recent months to deploy an emergency declaration to maximum effect, arguing that it would allow the president to halt crude oil exports, limit oil and gas drilling in federal waters, and direct agencies including the Federal Emergency Management Agency to boost renewable-energy sources.

Community leaders urged Gov. Ron Desantis Monday to declare a state of climate emergency immediately in Florida citing a recent report from the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that mentioned Florida is under significant threat.
The call to action, launched during what Chispa Florida is calling Latino Conservation week, included State Rep. Anna Eskamani (D) and Florida Conservation Voters, Florida Immigrant Coalition, Jobs with Justice, La Mesa Boricua de Florida, Hope Community Center, Farmworker Association of Florida and Mi Familia Vota to raise awareness about climate change as a “threat to the long-term safety and well-being of Florida’s people, economy, and environment.”
Rep. Eskamani, along with other Senators and Representatives, recognizing that climate change “affects us all, especially people living in Florida,” wrote a letter asking DeSantis to declare a state of climate emergency due to the connection between greenhouse gas emissions produced by humans and the global rise in temperature and fossil fuels.
During a press conference outside City Hall in downtown Orlando, the group warned that human-caused increases in global temperatures must end as soon as possible to avoid a “widespread and potentially irreversible impact.”




The representative said that declaring a climate emergency would also require Florida’s government to “establish a task force of scientists, environmental justice experts and local community leaders to inform his decision making on climate. We want to identify and measure Florida’s greenhouse gasses including the source, industry and county it originates from. Then we want to propose greenhouse gas reduction strategies, including a pathway for Florida to be carbon neutral and 100% renewable energy based by 2040,” she stated amongst other measures.

UN Chief: ‘I call on all leaders worldwide to declare a State of Climate Emergency in their countries’ – COVID Lockdowns to Morph into Climate Lockdowns?!

(Reuters) – World leaders should declare states of “climate emergency” to spur faster cuts in greenhouse gas emissions, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said on Saturday at a summit marking the fifth anniversary of the Paris climate accord. … “Can anybody still deny that we are facing a dramatic emergency?” Guterres said via video. “That is why today, I call on all leaders worldwide to declare a State of Climate Emergency in their countries until carbon neutrality is reached.” …
Guterres said economic recovery packages launched in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic should represent an opportunity to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon future – but said this was not happening fast enough.

‘Fantastic’ for the climate: Activists See Coronavirus Lockdowns As A Dress Rehearsal for ‘Climate Emergency’



You were warned: COVID lockdowns morph to Climate Lockdowns?! Biden urged to invoke ‘a climate emergency’ – ‘Could give Biden the authority to circumvent Congress’
Bloomberg News: Invoking a climate emergency could give Biden the authority to circumvent Congress and fund clean energy projects, shut down crude oil exports, suspend offshore drilling and curtail the movement of fossil fuels on pipelines, trains, and ships, according to a research note by consulting firm ClearView Energy Partners. “The president’s powers to address climate change through an emergency are very, very large,” said Kassie Siegel, an attorney with the environmental group Center for Biological Diversity, which is lobbying Biden’s team to act. “This is No. 1 on the list of things the Biden administration should do.” …
“Declaring a climate emergency will radicalize climate protection, alienating the very moderate Senators needed to pass infrastructure and other bills with carbon-reducing provisions,” said Paul Bledsoe, a former climate official in the Clinton White House, now with the Progressive Policy Institute. …Greenpeace, along with the Center for Biological Diversity and groups like Friends of the Earth, were among 500 organizations that called for the next president to declare a national climate emergency last December. Two candidates who sought the Democratic presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders and Tom Steyer, vowed on the campaign trail to declare climate change a national emergency.

She believes climate lockdowns will be necessary unless we “overhaul our economic structures and do capitalism differently.”
Is a “Climate Lockdown” on the horizon? – By Kit Knightly

The report, titled “Avoiding a climate lockdown”, was written by Mariana Mazzucato, a professor of economics at University College London, and head of something called the Council on the Economics of Health for All, a division of the World Health Organization. It was first published in October 2020 by Project Syndicate, a non-profit media organization that is (predictably) funded through grants from the Open society Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and many, many others. After that, it was picked up and republished by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), which describes itself as “a global, CEO-led organization of over 200 leading businesses working together to accelerate the transition to a sustainable world.”. The WBCSD’s membership is essentially every major company in the world, including Chevron, BP, Bayer, Walmart, Google and Microsoft. Over 200 members totalling well over 8 TRILLION dollars in annual revenue. In short: an economist who works for the WHO has written a report concerning “climate lockdowns”, which has been published by both a Gates+Soros backed NGO AND a group representing almost every bank, oil company and tech giant on the planet.
Whatever it says, it clearly has the approval of the people who run the world. … The whole article is not an argument, so much as an ultimatum. A gun held to the public’s collective head. “Obviously we don’t want to lock you up inside your homes, force you to eat processed soy cubes and take away your cars,” they’re telling us, “but we might have to, if you don’t take our advice.”

November 2021:Climate lockdowns: Paper published in prestigious journal laments ‘democracy’ & calls for ‘authoritarian environmentalism’ modeled after COVID lockdowns to address the alleged climate ’emergency’
Political Legitimacy, Authoritarianism, and Climate Change – Published online by Cambridge University Press – American Political Science Review – December 6, 2021
ROSS MITTIGA – Assistant Professor, Instituto de Ciencia Política, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Chile, ross.mittiga@uc.cl

Abstract Excerpt: Is authoritarian power ever legitimate? … While, under normal conditions, maintaining democracy and rights is typically compatible with guaranteeing safety, in emergency situations, conflicts between these two aspects of legitimacy can and often do arise. A salient example of this is the COVID-19 pandemic, during which severe limitations on free movement and association have become legitimate techniques of government. Climate change poses an even graver threat to public safety. Consequently, I argue, legitimacy may require a similarly authoritarian approach.”




. .
The paper’s author Ross Mittaga, calls for “authoritarian environmentalism” to address the alleged climate “emergency.” : “It is ultimately an empirical question whether authoritarian governance is better able to realize desired environmental outcomes and, if so why and to what extent? Yet, it is undeniable that nearly all wealthy democratic states have failed to respond adequately to the climate crisis. By contrast, various less affluent authoritarian regimes have been successful in implementing stringent climate policies…”

Climate lockdowns?! Climate is ‘greatest threat’ to global public health, say 230 medical journals: Declare COVID-19 ‘response be ‘template’ for climate response

Aug. 2021: Journal Nature: COVID lockdowns are key to begin ‘personal carbon allowances’: ‘Restrictions on individuals…that were unthinkable only 1 year before’ have us ‘more prepared to accept tracking & limitations’ to ‘achieve a safer climate’
Nature Sustainability: Authors argue COVID restrictions, smart meters & tracking apps can be used as a stepping stone for a personal carbon allowance. – Published: 16 August 16, 2021
Journal article urges for “the need for a low-carbon recovery from the COVID-19 crisis” by using “personal carbon allowances (PCAs).” “A PCA scheme would entail all adults receiving an equal, tradable carbon allowance that reduces over time in line with national targets…encompassing individuals’ carbon emissions relating to travel, space heating, water heating and electricity.” … “Allowances were envisioned to be deducted from the personal budget with every payment for transport fuel, home-heating fuels and electricity bills. People in shortage would be able to purchase additional units in the personal carbon market from those with excess to sell. New, more ambitious PCA proposals include economy-wide emissions, encompassing food, services and consumption-related carbon emissions, for example.”
In particular, during the COVID-19 pandemic, restrictions on individuals for the sake of public health, and forms of individual accountability and responsibility that were unthinkable only one year before, have been adopted by millions of people. People may be more prepared to accept the tracking and limitations related to PCAs to achieve a safer climate and the many other benefits (for example, reduced air pollution and improved public health) associated with addressing the climate crisis.Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Other lessons that could be drawn relate to the public acceptance in some countries of additional surveillance and control in exchange for greater safety…Recent studies show how COVID-19 contact-tracing apps were successfully implemented with mandatory schemes in several East Asian countries, such as China, Taiwan and South Korea…Recent advances in smarter home and transport options make it possible to easily track and manage a large share of individuals’ emissions. Evidence from the roll-out of smart meters and informative displays can be used to design feedback that is highly effective in engaging individuals to reduce their energy-related emissions…In terms of implementation platforms, while in the 2000s carbon allowances were expected to be managed by a card, in the 2020s high ownership would make smartphones the preferred option for accounting and trading (while providing alternative options for the few without smartphones).

Breitbart News: A report produced by Cambridge University academics has called for foods with so-called high carbon footprints, such as dairy and meat, to be made more expensive in order to save the planet. The Cambridge University-led study published by the British Medical Journal (BMJ) says that “education” alone on changing diets towards more plant-based habits and abandoning car ownership is not enough. The report, “Changing Behaviour for Net Zero 2050” instead suggests there be “rapid, radical changes” to pricing in order to make normal food consumption and travel prohibitively expensive. In forcing people to abandon their cars, the scientists suggest increasing prices of fossil fuels and charging private car owners for road use, including “congestion zone charging and increased parking costs”. “Restricting availability and attractiveness of car use — eg, car-free zones, limited parking, traffic calming measures, and low-speed limits” was also recommended.

For instance, even with public criticism being high, many still perceived government approval as the yardstick for safe behaviour during COVID-19 ‘we’re allowed to do this now [so must be safe]…’.

The blueprint, however, emphasizes that tackling the climate crisis requires “significant behavioral change”.

And even if it’s not something as drastic as a total lockdown, there could be a ban on ‘nonessential travel’ with hefty fines for driving anywhere except to your job, the grocery store or the doctor’s office. From there you can easily imagine an order limiting the sale or purchase of red meats or other unapproved foods.
Beyond that, the possibilities showing up on liberal wishlists are nearly endless. Driving to vote may be declared an unnecessary consumption of fossil fuels, so all voting could be mandated to be done by mail. Home air conditioning could be deemed too much of a risk to the environment. (It’s already been suggested.) And all of this could be done without a single elected representative ever casting a vote.

Climate Lockdowns: New CO2 monitoring credit card enables tracking of ‘carbon footprint on every purchase’ – ‘Monitors & cuts off spending when we hit our carbon max’ – Mastercard & UN join forces

The World Economic Forum praised Doconomy. “While many of us are aware that we need to reduce our carbon footprint, advice on doing so can seem nebulous and keeping a tab is difficult. DO monitors and cuts off spending, when we hit our carbon max.”
#
Climate Depot’s Marc Morano: “This CO2 monitoring credit card will begin as a ‘voluntary’ measure with no ‘mandate.’ But how long until this CO2 card will be mandated by big corporations in collusion with governments? Given how the climate activists are aping the COVID lockdowns, expect this credit card to be mandatory under a ‘climate emergency.’” See:Journal Nature: COVID lockdowns are key to begin ‘personal carbon allowances’: ‘Restrictions on individuals…that were unthinkable only 1 year before’ have us ‘more preparedto accept tracking & limitations’ to ‘achieve a safer climate’

Welcome to the world of personal carbon allowances – a concept that is increasingly gaining traction among experts as a possible response to the climate crisis. Each month, it would see every person or household in the country given a limited emissions quota to spend on heating, energy, travel, food and possibly consumer goods. Those who wish to expend more could buy top-ups. Those who require less would be able to sell their left-overs back to the ‘grid’.” … Now, in the wake of Cop26, many feel the concept – radical, perhaps, but demonstrably do-able – has never been riper for consideration. So, could this be our future? … “By establishing an equal monthly budget for everyone, you create a sense of a shared effort to address a shared problem,” says Fawcett.

Bozell: ‘Digital Brownshirts’ Attacking MRC Backed by China-Funding Leftist Org










‘Death by 1,000 Climate Faucis’: ‘A power grab in the name of science is something that the Left has been attempting for years in the name of climate change’
KEVIN A. HASSETT: “The section of our ruling class (a notion that, broadly defined, expands far beyond our legislatures) that wants to take away our freedoms and control our lives found, in Tony Fauci, the perfect device for mass oppression. Shut things down, smother people’s faces with masks, make grandparents die alone — all in the name of science. Of course, a power grab in the name of science is something that the Left has been attempting for years in the name of climate change. The similarities between the apocalyptic rhetoric about COVID and that about climate change, often spouted by the same people, should not evade the attention of conservatives. …
If we can shut down the economy and force people to isolate [themselves] because of a virus that threatens a small percentage of humanity, what can we do when the entire Earth is threatened? My fear is that the Left has found in the totalitarian Fauci state the playbook that takes this entire COVID farce to the next level. If we can shut down everything, even churches, for 30 days to “stop the spread,” why not shut the entire economy down for half a year to save the planet?”

Business Insider mag: ‘Electric vehicles won’t save us — we need to get rid of cars completely’

Paris Marx writing in Business Insider: “Making transit available within a 10-minute walk of people’s homes would not only encourage its use and create tens of millions of jobs, but could begin to transform our relationship to mobility. … There was a moment during the pandemic where it felt that change was not only possible, but was happening in front of our very eyes. Streets were closed to vehicles so people had space to move, and temporary bike lanes were thrown up to encourage cycling. …
We should seize this opportunity to challenge the past century of auto-oriented planning and emphasize walking, cycling, and transit use over driving. Not only would people’s quality of life improve, but if we’re serious about taking on the climate crisis, we need to significantly reduce the number of cars and SUVs on the road — regardless of what powers them.”

How COVID Lockdowns Handed Global Warming Extremists The Tools To Crush Freedom
“Wouldn’t it be grand, our technocrats think, if they could turn the COVID-19 emergency into a permanent emergency over climate? The possibilities are limitless.
Traveling? If we can lock you in your home to stop a virus, why can’t we trap you there so you don’t get in your gas-guzzling car or fly on a carbon-spewing airplane? Such wastefulness must be reserved for a select few, like the important leaders flying to international climate conferences.”


Green Fraud Excerpt:

Yvo de Boer’s words sound prophetic when compared to the comments of climate campaigners in 2020 excited about the impact of the COVID lockdowns.
Climate activist Eric Holthaus said on April 22, 2020, about the impact of lockdowns on global CO2 emissions: “This is roughly the same pace that the IPCC says we need to sustain every year until 2030 to be on pace to limit global warming to 1.5C and hit the Paris climate goals. This is what ‘rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society’ looks like.”
Former secretary of state John Kerry opined, “It’s a tragically teachable moment. I don’t say this in a partisan way. But the parallels [between COVID-19 and climate change] are screaming at us, both positive and negative….You could just as easily replace the words climate change with COVID-19; it is truly the tale of two pandemics deferred, denied, and distorted, one with catastrophic consequences, the other with even greater risk if we don’t reverse course.”
“If one lesson from the pandemic is that taking serious action in a timely manner is key—then shouldn’t this also be true in terms of climate change?” asked Sir Lindsay Hoyle, the speaker of the House of Commons, at the G7 Speakers’ Meeting in 2020. Hoyle expressed his amazement at how readily the public had accepted the COVID lockdowns. “No-one could ever imagine that we would be wearing masks so readily and that we would all be so compliant,” he said. “People were prepared to accept limitations on personal choice and lifestyle—for the good of their own family and friends.”
In February of 2020, Democratic presidential primary candidate and mega–climate funder Tom Steyer laid out his plan for a climate police state. “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 declared. “We need to rebuild this country in a climate-smart way…we don’t have a choice on this.”
In 2019, University of Copenhagen international relations professor Ole Wæver explained, “If there was something that was decided internationally by some more centralized procedure and every country was told ‘this is your emission target, it’s not negotiable, we can actually take military measures if you don’t fulfill it,’ then you would basically have to get that down the throat of your population, whether they like it or not.”
Youth activist Jamie Margolin wrote for Teen Vogue article titled, “Coronavirus Response Should Be a Model for How We Address Climate Change,” wrote – “If we can shut the world down to stop a virus, that also means it is possible to do the same for climate change. Treat all emergencies like emergencies!”
No dissent allowed: COVID debate apes climate debate: Physician compares people who disagree on COVID, masks, vaccines – to patients with severe psychosis
German Climate Advisor ‘proposes creation of a CO2 budget for every person on planet!’
‘Personal carbon trading scheme’: ‘Every adult in UK should be forced to use ‘carbon ration cards’, say MPs – Excerpt: Everyone would be given an annual carbon allowance to use when buying oil, gas, electricity and flights — Anyone who exceeds their entitlement would have to buy top-up credits from individuals who haven’t used up their allowance. […] The influential Environmental Audit Committee says a personal carbon trading scheme is the best and fairest way of cutting Britain’s CO2 emissions without penalizing the poor.

Full segment transcript:
So, we’re learning more now about the sad toll of the corona lockdowns in this country. According to Joe Biden though, we could get another round of lockdowns. These, for a crisis that’s every bit as bad as the coronavirus, may be worse. That crisis, of course, says Joe Biden is climate change.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
JOE BIDEN (D), PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: Today, I’m pleased to announce a team that will lead my administration’s ambitious plan to address the existential threat of our time, climate change.
Folks, we’re in a crisis just like we need to be a unified nation in response to COVID-19, we need a unified national response to climate change, and from this crisis, from these crises, I should say, we need to seize the opportunity to build back and build back better than we were before.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
CARLSON A unified national response. It’s involuntary, that’s the one thing we know. What does it mean? Well, we’re learning that a World Health Organization staffer has written a report saying that a climate lockdown could be called for, just like a COVID lockdown, a climate lockdown.
Marc Morano is an author who has written a lot about climate change. He founded Climate Depot. He joins us tonight. Marc, thanks so much for coming on.
A climate lockdown. Now, I would laugh this off the table except we all just lived through the last 18 months, so we know that anything is possible. What does this mean exactly?
MARC MORANO, FOUNDER, CLIMATE DEPOT: Well, you know in my book “Green Fraud,” I detail two chapters on this, Tucker. This is — the climate activists were first of all jealous when the COVID lockdowns happened. They were beside themselves saying how is this happening? Everyone from Greta Thunberg to John Kerry, U.N. officials, and then they started saying, we need to follow this.
If we can shut down for a virus, we can shut down for climate, and that’s what we’re seeing. There’s even academics in Australia proposing adding climate change to death certificates, and Bill Gates has said the death toll will be greater.
So, they’re following every step of the way and it’s not just, you know, a professor here or someone in academia, we have a major U.K. report coming out. We have an international agency report that came out calling for essentially the same type of lockdowns, everything from restrictions on your thermostat to restrictions of moving. You know, you can only fly in a climate emergency when it’s quote, “morally justifiable.” You know kind of like a lockdown, you have to justify going to the store for essential services.
They’re going after freedom of movement. They’re going after private car ownership. They’re going after everything it means to be a free person and turning it over to the administrative state.
CARLSON: Would this include shutting down the iPhone factories in China? Would china and India participate in this climate lockdown? Or is it kind of you first, America?
MORANO: Well, you know, as we know the lockdowns had never been proposed. We felt like lemmings following the Chinese Communist Party in terms of them recommending lockdowns. The World Health Organization went after it. The World Health Organization employees are now recommending these climate lockdowns.
The one country that won’t be affected is China. As you say, as we’re sitting home binge-watching Netflix, we’re not going to be able to have the freedoms we used to have. In the U.K., they propose CO2 ration cards that the government or employers would monitor your CO2 levels. You know your energy use, your travel, the type of car you drive.
If you exceed a level, you pay penalties. If you’re under, you get credits.
This is the world, a CO2 budget for every man, woman, and child on the planet has been proposed by a German climate adviser. This is our — this is what we’re looking at.
You know, I talked to a German who talked about East Germany. They used to have these kind of restrictions in East Germany before you could leave the country, but we’re talking about proposing these now on Americans within the country, and we had this of course with COVID. They were talking about bans on interstate travel at one point, a national ban, some of Biden’s advisers.
So, anything is possible. Chuck Schumer is urging Biden to declare a national climate emergency just like a blue state governor, he could have emergency powers.
CARLSON: I feel such a deep shame that Americans complied with what we’ve just been through and I hope that they will not comply with this. I really do.
Marc, thanks so much for coming on.
MORANO: Sure. Thank you, Tucker.
CARLSON: We’ll see you again, for sure.
We’ll be back tomorrow, every night, the show that is the sworn enemy of lying, pomposity, smugness, and groupthink.

Flashback 2005: Barbra Streisand helped pioneer the inane phrase ‘Climate Emergency’: Streisand in 2005: “Al Gore passionately stressed that our world no longer has a climate problem, we are in a climate emergency.” Streisand also told ABC’s Diane Sawyer that we were “in a global warming emergency state.”
Streisand reveals ‘I, and others have spent countless millions on this issue’ – She funded UN IPCC Lead Author to tune of $250,000
Update July 2021:
Marxism’s new face is…climate lockdowns: Study claims Americans cut energy use 90%, live in 640 sq, fly once every 3 years, limit ‘new clothing’, ‘plant-based diet’, ‘collective transport,’ universal basic income’ & ‘degrowth’
A team of European researchers led by the University of Leeds published a study in the journal Global Environmental Change – June 29, 2021
“Degrowth… is an idea whose time has come”
Move from “an animal-based to a plant-based diet”
Move from “individual to collective transport”
Move from “motorized to active” (walking and cycling) travel

Watch: New Zealand COVID ‘expert’ pushes climate lockdowns next: ‘We can do this for climate change’
Siouxsie Wiles, interview with John Campbell Apr 2021, TV1. TheBFD.

April 13, 2021 on TV1 New Zealand: Excerpt of microbiologist and science communicator Dr. Siouxsie Wiles, head of University of Auckland’s Bioluminescent Superbugs Lab – Wiles official bio refers to her as “that pink-haired science lady”: (UK Guardian calls Dr. Wiles “one of New Zealand’s most prominent pandemic communicators“:
“I hope that you know, people take from our responses that we can do this for other things too, you know, we can do this for the other, ah diseases that we have here in New Zealand, we can do this for climate change, umm and I think we should not underestimate actually, the kind of soft power now that New Zealand has, that we can really be an exemplar for how to be a good society, how to use evidence in the right way, you know and we’re not doing it for everything, so I, I think we, you know, we can show actually, wh’d why, wouldn, why wouldn’t we do this for other things?”

Radical resetters publish plan to wreck America and the free world
A peer-reviewed study by five lead authors published June 29th in the journal Global Environmental Change:
Slash annual energy use per person from Canada – 232 Gigajoules (GJ), U.S. – 204 GJ, and France 95 – GJ to a very low 27 GJ per year
“Fairer income distribution is crucial for achieving decent living standards at low energy use”
“To reduce existing income disparities, governments could raise minimum wages, provide a Universal Basic Income, and introduce a maximum income”
“We also need much higher taxes on high incomes, and lower taxes on low incomes”
Move from “an animal-based to a plant-based diet”
Move from “individual to collective transport”
Move from “motorized to active” (walking and cycling) travel
“Economic growth beyond moderate levels of affluence is detrimental for aspirations of sustainable development”.
“Degrowth… is an idea whose time has come”
“In short,” the study’s authors sum up, “we need to abandon economic growth in affluent countries, scale back resource extraction, and prioritize public services, basic infrastructures and fair income distributions everywhere.”

The IPCC Report & the Pivot from Covid to Climate – ‘We’re pivoting to climate change guys. Great Reset Phase II is upon us’
iNews article by Andrew Marr. Where he literally uses the phrase “hinge to climate from Covid” several times:

There is a great turn coming, a change in the terms of political debate, a period of hinge. We are swinging from the many months of coronavirus obsession into an autumn which will be dominated, rightly, by the climate emergency. But much of what we have learned from Covid-19 – about the state, authority, journalism and civil society – is directly applicable to what’s coming next.” … Of course, the two challenges are different. So far, a little over 4.3 million people have died from Covid. Australian and Chinese academics estimate that around five million people are dying each year from the effects of climate change […] Suffice it to say that even if the Delta variant is the most infectious disease mankind has so far faced, the climate emergency is at another level – a reshaper of geography, highly unpredictable and, in short, existential for the planet and its inhabitants.

It’s not hard to see exactly where this all leads. Mostly because they’re telling us. Establishment voices have already talked about “climate lockdowns”, and the UK’s Science Advisor Patrick Vallance wrote, last week, about how: “nothing short of transforming society will avert catastrophe” This isn’t new. This has been bubbling along in the background for months (I have already written two articles about it), but the message is being refined into a simple three-step process:


  1. Point out all the ways Covid and climate change are similar.
  2. Emphasise that Climate Change is much more of a threat than Covid. Use the word “existential. A lot.
  3. Argue that since we were willing to change to fight Covid, we should do the same for climate.[optional]







Watch: COVID lockdowns morphing into climate lockdowns – Morano on Tucker Carlson

“Chuck Schumer is urging Biden to declare a national climate emergency. Just like a blue-state governor, he could have emergency powers,” Marc Morano of Climate Depot said on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show last night. Morano continued: “The World Health Organization employees are now recommending these climate lockdowns. …In the UK they’ve proposed CO2 ration cards that the government or employers would monitor your CO2 levels, your energy use. This is the world…A CO2 budget for every man, woman, and child on the planet has been proposed by a German climate advisor. This is what we’re looking at.”

“We have the major UK report that came out; we have an International Energy Agency report that came out… calling for essentially the same type of lockdowns — everything from restrictions on your thermostat to restrictions of moving. You can only fly in a climate emergency when it’s ‘morally justifiable.’”

Morano warned: “They’re going after freedom of movement; they’re going after private car ownership, they’re going after everything it means to be a free person and turning it over to the administrative state.”

Want to Lock Down for the Climate? Hitting environmentalists’ emission timetables would take far more than even what the pandemic forced. – Bjorn Lomborg: “Cutting fossil fuels as quickly as some environmentalists want will be tremendously difficult. In 2020 pandemic lockdowns forced the world to cut carbon emissions significantly. But to fulfill the Paris climate accords completely, the United Nations says that global emissions would have to plunge even further every year for the rest of the decade. In 2021 emissions would have to drop by more than double the lockdown-induced decline. By the end of 2030, they’d have to have fallen by 11 times what they did in 2020. Not exactly realistic.”

Indigenous activists come to D.C. with a message for Biden: Declare a ‘national climate emergency’



PRINCETON PHYSICIST WILLIAM HAPPER: ‘THERE IS NO CLIMATE EMERGENCY’ – ‘DOUBLING CO2 MAKES NO DIFFERENCE

Scientists Dr. Lindzen & Happer: ‘There is no climate emergency. Americans should not be stampeded into a disastrous climate crusade’
Lindzen & Happer: “Crusaders will continue to retort that “the science is settled; it is time to act!” But real science is never settled, nor is scientific truth determined by consensus or political diktats. Agreement with observations is the measure of scientific truth.” … “The frenzy over climate resembles the medieval crusades against foreign infidels and home-grown heretics. There is even a children’s climate crusade.” …
“We are both scientists who can attest that the research literature does not support the claim of a climate emergency. Nor will there be one. None of the lurid predictions — dangerously accelerating sea-level rise, increasingly extreme weather, more deadly forest fires, unprecedented warming, etc. — are any more accurate than the fire-and-brimstone sermons used to stoke fanaticism in medieval crusaders.” …
“So far, climate crusaders have refrained from vilifying water vapor and clouds, which make the largest contribution to greenhouse warming of the earth. Carbon dioxide, demonized as “carbon pollution,” is an improbable villain.” … “More carbon dioxide is likely to cause some surface warming. But the warming would be small and benign. In fact, history shows that warmings of a few degrees Celsius — which extended growing seasons — have been good for humanity. The golden age of classical Roman civilization occurred during a warm period. Cooling periods, which were accompanied by barbarian invasions, famines, and plagues, have been bad. Neither contemporary observations nor the geological record support computer-based claims that CO2 is the “control knob” for the earth’s climate.”


A Biden climate “emergency” would jettison democracy
Scientific American to use term ‘climate emergency,’ says it ‘agreed with major news outlets worldwide’ to do soIn publishing the op-ed “We Are Living in a Climate Emergency, and We’re Going to Say So,” senior editor Mark Fischetti called attention to the magazine’s decision, which insists that “this is a statement of science, not politics.” … The magazine said that adopting the term “climate emergency” is “not a journalistic fancy. We are on solid scientific ground.”

Citing grave threat, Scientific American replaces ‘climate change’ with ‘climate emergency’
Activists urge Biden to embrace ‘climate emergency’ to ‘radically reshape the U.S. economy’ & ‘best way of launching a Green New Deal’
Eric Holthaus: “Declaring a climate emergency under the National Emergencies Act would give President Biden nearly everything he needs to begin radically reshaping the economy of the United States for a zero carbon world and steer American society toward an ecological future. It would be Biden’s best way of launching a Green New Deal.”

Eric Holthaus: “Our country, and our nation, are in a climate emergency…This country was founded on the exploitation and extermination of non-white people who lived together with Nature, not in opposition to it. Over the past five hundred of years, that racist underpinning has continued to escalate the climate emergency. If we don’t acknowledge the racist roots of opposition to climate action, the world is going to keep spiraling towards chaos. It’s bad now. But it will get much, much worse.”
