Here Come the ‘Climate Lockdowns’

by Rick Moran, PJ Media:

PJM’s Jeff Reynolds reported on the proposed “climate emergency” legislation that would declare climate change a “national emergency.” If passed, it would give Biden sweeping powers and unlock billions in spending.

Since there is no “climate emergency” at the moment, the radical greens have to create one. And the more dire and frightening they can make it, the more powerful they will become. AOC and her cohorts in Congress will do their best but it’s likely that the worst of the “Green New Deal” will never be enacted even with the declaration that climate change is a national emergency.

Democrats’ Climate Agenda Will Mimic Their COVID Tyranny

by Trevor Thomas, American Thinker:

If you’ve enjoyed the last 10 months of foolish, science-denying lockdowns and mask mandates, the widespread destruction of businesses and economies, and the government telling you what jobs are “essential” and how you are to conduct yourself in your own home, then you must absolutely love the Democrats’ climate agenda.

For decades, the climate cultists from the “New Religion of First World Elites” have attempted to use fear — the destruction of the planet — and a fake cause — saving the planet — to convince Americans to vote for Democrats and enact the perverse science-denying climate agenda of the modern left.  For a primer on how this would work, look no farther than 2020.

Biden’s Pentagon Announces Climate Change Is Now a National Security Threat

by Luis Miguel, The New American:

The Pentagon will now be treating climate change as a national-security threat, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said this week.

This is a huge deviation from the Trump administration, which did not make any such declarations on the issue. The announcement also comes after Joe Biden signed various executive orders to cut oil, gas, and coal emissions and to double the production of energy from offshore wind turbines.

In a statement, Austin said the Defense Department “will immediately take appropriate policy actions to prioritize climate change considerations in our activities and risk assessments, to mitigate this driver of insecurity. As directed by the President, we will include the security implications of climate change in our risk analyses, strategy development, and planning guidance.”

New Study Claims An Ice Age Is Coming — Earth’s Climate Is ‘Cyclical’

from Humans Are Free:

Geologist and earth scientist Professor Ian Plimer says the “climate is cyclical” as a new study claims Earth is heading to an ice age.

“We are getting towards the end of the warm period, the peak of the warmth was about 5,000 years ago and we are heading for the next inevitable ice age,” he told Sky News host Cory Bernardi.

Marc Morano: COVID-19 Lockdowns Set Precedent for Climate Change Lockdown

by Robert Kraychik, Breitbart:

Marc Morano, founder of Climate Depot and author of the forthcoming Green Fraud: Why the Green New Deal Is Even Worse than You Think, warned “climate change” would be used as a pretext for lockdowns as is being done with coronavirus.

“They want to use the COVID lockdown as the model for climate lockdowns,” said Morano of Democrats and the broader left, offering his remarks on Tuesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.

Lagarde Pushes ECB To Shun Fossil Fuel Bonds As Central Banks Embrace “Green” Future

from ZeroHedge:

Later this year, the ECB will meet for a grand strategy review. Expected to be one of the most consequential policy reviews for years to come, the central bank could opt for changes to its inflation target (some doves have proposed following in the footsteps of the Fed by loosening the ECB’s inflation target) as some have insisted. But one change that appears virtually certain, is that the central bank will adopt language addressing matters like climate change, economic equality, etc.

Doug Casey on the Calls for Fed to Address Inequality, Climate Change, and More…

by Doug Casey, International Man:

International Man: Recently, the calls for the Fed to add a third mandate to address racial and economic inequality have grown louder.

Will we see a redistribution of wealth soon?

Doug Casey: It seems the movement towards black “reparations” is building momentum. These things always start small, testing the water, then grow when nobody either laughs at them for being stupid or decries them as evil. Most Americans are now too intimidated and confused to do that, however.

It’s similar to MMT. A year ago, the notion of Modern Monetary Theory was too outrageous a notion for a sensible person to bother considering; now, it’s practically public policy.

New Study: No Warming At All In Sweden For The Last 200 Years

from Humans Are Free:

First we start by noting how Greta Thunberg has been obsessed with the climate of the globe and that of her home Sweden. She claims it is changing dangerously fast and how this is supposedly unprecedented.

But a recent paper shows this is in fact all false, at least in Sweden:
