How Trump will reshape energy, environmental policies

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On this, our last Christmas holiday shows, ClimateDepot.com director Marc Morano joins me to talk about how governments use “the environment” as an excuse to interfere with almost every aspect of our lives.

We review the year in “climate change” and “green” initiatives like carbon taxes.

We also look ahead to what we can expect from a Donald Trump presidency.

Trump has famously expressed skepticism about “global warming,” so will his anti-regulation, pro-pipeline views be put into practise?

We also fondly remember Marc's stunt at the recent UN climate change conference, when delegates reacted to his cardboard cutout of Trump "the way vampires would react to a cross."

And what does Marc think about my theory that Trump has brought back "blue collar cool"?

Rebelation—I must admit that you calling me a leftie was a real insult, but it also showed everyone that you don’t know anything about the subject that we are discussing. When I prove you wrong, are you going to say I’m like Hitler? Unlike you, before I criticise someone in public, I make sure that I am correct, so I did the water-ice cube test. I went to my lab and got my favorite beer glass, put two-thirds water in it, and 10 ice-cubes on top. Most importantly I put a piece of tape at the water line. I came back in 4 hours and the water line was up one inch, proving my theory correct ,in that the top of a ice burg melts into the ocean. This proved “Scot Evolution is a Hoax” wrong where he said " ice on water melting does not take up any space."
Rebelation try the experiment yourself; don’t worry as you don’t have to be too smart to do it.

Ron. There’s always a fatal flaw in the narrative of Lefty’s to give them away. i.e.; “icebergs are usually quite a distance above the water”. HUH? Say wha’??? Icebergs are typically 3/4 below water and 1/4 above.

The other giveaway, is the attempt to draw others into long-winded narratives creating confusion, out of which they’ll impose the “correct” answer. They do this with false questions like, are ice cubes 50% air, and “where did you learn what the ingredients are?”, as if to take the know-it-all position, when he’s already demonstrated his ignorance with the former – flawed – assumption!

In reality, he’s a just your typical truth-hating truth-denier. The last giveaway, was that he didn’t try the experiment, because if he did, he wouldn’t still be writing, trying to engage others! Lefty’s are closed minded and don’t want to hear it! They would simply rather debate you into the ground than learn something.

In short Ron, your confusion tactic doesn’t work around here, as facts will outdo your confusion every time!

Guys, in case you three are serious, I must explain this. When an Ice burg is 100 feet above the water line, and it melts the water goes into the ocean. Where in hell did you think it would go ?
commented 2017-01-03 22:38:18 -0500
Elton, I know the test, I was asking Scot if icebergs are 50% air in order for your ice cube test to come out as it does. Unlike your test, icebergs are usually quite a distance above the water.
Where did you and Canadian Mongrel learn what the ingredients were to make the ice cubs?

That is true empirical science. It involves hard fact, not a statistically driven model. You don’t think a follower of socialist science would try that experiment do you
commented 2017-01-03 15:25:11 -0500
Ron Joseph-no offence intended but this is grade 3 science. Put some ice cubes in a pitcher of water and mark the water line. After the ice melts see if the water line has changed.
commented 2017-01-03 14:06:35 -0500
Scot Evolution is a Hoax—Would you explain to me your theory that “when Arctic ice melts on water, it doesn’t make the ocean higher because the place it displaces is equal to its volume in water.” Say we have an ice berg 2′×2′×2′ , floating half above the water and half below. I understand the half below when melted will not take any extra space as it displaces the area left by the ice with water. The half of the berg above the water has no place to go except on top of the ocean making it higher like the environmentalists say.
Are you saying the top of the berg evaporates?; or are you saying 50% of the ice berg is air?

Trump has already made his impact on the junk science-climate fear mongering profiteering cartels – he shut down the major climate rape cartel almost immediately after his election by default – they saw continuing to commit climate fraud was pointless in the new era of stop-lying-to-us populism.

- probably the most unreported major event of the year was the utter failure of the last UN climate confab in Marrakesh to sign an agreement to form global governance over energy resources – when it was apparent Trump and American populism had triumphed over rapacious globalist misanthropy in the US election, the conference was a sullen non-event with delegates flying home without signing a treaty, their dreams of global governance in defeat. Because of the micro managed disinforming media in America many citizens will never know how close global government came to being real, and that Trump helped America dodge a fatal bullet.

I love the man Trump has assigned to the EPA, it’s a victory for real science, true environmentalism and conservationism – it is also the death knell for the eco-fascists and junk science commissars and eco-BS which have infected the EPA over the past 3 decades.

Personally I agree with Keith Barnes and Ron Joseph about Ezra’s interviewing style, because I am as interested in Ezra’s opinions as I am in his guest’s opinions. More like a round table discussion than an interview.

@ Ezra – I agree with Chuck Jarvie (commented earlier). You do that will all your guests. Just a suggestion.

And, of course, the Boy Blunder in Ottawa is also going to learn that lesson the hard way…

“Interesting” indeed John Williams… And since Russia’s shaky economy is largely based on oil exports, it will be interesting to see what happens when North America goes oil independent… Let’s remember that the demise of the Soviet Union was brought about by President Ronald Regan surging ahead with rearming the United States military, on land and in space, which broke the back of the Soviet economy… History is about to be revisited again…

It will be interesting to see what the US will look like running at full energy capacity.
Reducing the middle easts and Russias power will be a good thing. As an example to other countries the US may demonstrate that by opening up the spigots their economies can thrive and a Western, ethical energy unification of nations can put the west back in the drivers seat, where we should be. Hopefully, countries will jump the UN ship and defund their “climate” agenda. The West is the best, though the Left would disagree. Instead of apologizing to the world like the Democrats are so quick to do, Trump is going to unleash the potential of America and say we are the best. He a timely antidote to the wimps that have governed the West for too long.

Marty Ashfield—Your post wasn’t too clear; do you like Trudeau ?
commented 2017-01-03 00:14:22 -0500
By Ezra asking an opinion , and before the answer he gives his opinion; it allows the guest to think about his answer, therefore we receive a more informed reply.

KEITH BARNES thanks for the two video clips, they were very enlightening.
Turdeau the stupid F*ck really believes the things he says. He thinks he is speaking truths and that the rest of Canadians will trust him and believe in him and stand by him – stupid F*cker. An absolute moron, or a maroon as Bugs Bunny would say.
I just cant believe that this stupid F*ck is still walking and talking.
Lordy, Lordy, Lordy how I hate the JERK.

Chuck+Jarvie; Ezra likes to hear himself talk. No one is perfect but he could let his guests participate a bit more. It is a problem with control freaks.

Egil and Chuck, Ezra makes a statement or asks a question and then states his own opinion. He fully expects his Guest to correct or agree with him, when it is his Guests turn to speak. I d not see any thing wrong with this.

I see the USA with a new leader, who will “Make America Great Again” and I feel happy for the Americans.

I see Canada with a new Idiot who will ‘Make Canada Break’ as he transforms it into an Islamic State and I feel sad.

Trudeau is not what he pretends to be. He will do anything for money.

I knew the science behind the so called global warming was bogus when they said that if North pole Ice would cause the oceans to rise. I remember on line having to explain to people that the Ice on water melting does not take any room up. the space it displaces is equal to its volume in water; Only water on land in the form of ice melting and going into the ocean could raise ocean levels. And since many cities are only 1 inch above sea level, I know that there is no global warming. No additional energy has caused more melting enough to cause significant sea level rise.
Thirdly. You can check the temperature of the world by the records of temps 6 ft underground. That temp in my area is 55 degrees. that is also the average temperature of the weather in our area. take the daily average temperature each day for 365 days and divide that added number by 365 and you will get 55 deg. And that is the way it is. In southern climates the numbers are higher and in the north lower etc. there is more to it than that… but the fact is. Actual science says there is no Man made global warming causing sea level rise.

The problem isn’t Trump. He hasn’t been in power. The Problem is what is existing. Its a Monopoly where there is no competition. How is it that there is one world oil price. that says manufactured collusion legalized by the Gov’ts of the world.
Yet, when the price is down, those same companies then seem to take the end product and over charge for it, within cents. And now our Gov’ts are all adding tax to it. (calling it a carbon tax.).

the problem is not trump.

John Day, I heard we are playing ’where’s Waldo’ with our PM. I just wish he was never coming back. Lost forever. Lost at sea. Disappeared into thin air. Vanished!
Of course we would cry at first, but we would dry our tears, and somehow we would find a way to carry on.
If only!

Welcome back Ezra. Happy New Year.
I agree with Marc Morano’s take on Trump. Trump is more than equipped to run things and his experience as a ‘builder’ will translate well into every aspect of governance. As anyone who has worked on or had anything to do with choreographing a big construction job could tell you, everything is a symbiotic relationship. It’s like running a mini country. Trump knows how to get the right people for the job, how to negotiate for a beneficial outcome, how to find out what the problems are and how to fix them. Trump could write a book on diplomacy.

Haters can chuckle but the results will just keep piling up.
It will be exciting to watch an unleashed America. I only wish Canada could join in on the ride instead of only being a sad bystander.
Outside the candy shop looking in. That where we will be us as long as we are ruled by our dictator tater tot.

Ezra. Please stop asking a question by trying to answer it. Ask the question and let the guy you are asking the question answer it. that poor guy Mark was waiting for you to stop talking and had a look on his face trying to figure out where u finished answering your own and asking him. You are doing a great job just starting to lean.
