SPECIAL: Why “climate change” schemes are crumbling (Guest: Marc Morano)

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


After watching the "climate change" myth take hold over the last 20 years, I assumed the charade was now a done deal in terms of government policy — despite the lack of evidence supporting it.

Even conservative politicians in Canada have embraced it, including one (my old boss, Preston Manning) who'd once opposed schemes like the Kyoto Protocol.

Then came Donald Trump, who rejected the Paris Accord. Now Ontario has elected Doug Ford, who campaigned on, and has just confirmed, his intention to roll back the province's Liberal climate policies, like a carbon tax.

Tonight my guest Marc Morano and I wonder whether or not we should be optimistic. When did the political tide begin to turn, and why? Has public opinion changed too? And how are climate change fanatics trying to fight back. (Hint: Did you know that climate change skepticism is now "racist"...)

Butts head’s head is going to spin around just like that horror movie . And just why have we not seen how much money it cost Canadians for all the Paris pigs at the trough . Still no answer .

Whenever I challenge some rabid Global Warming/Climate Change groupie I will often ask why is it during the time of the Vikings Iceland and Greenland were green, and not mostly frozen over as they are now. I usually get a huff and puff routine full of expletives and then crickets….! What is being attempted? Simple, the collapse of Communism caused “Green” to become the new “Red”. That is the end game, not any concern for the planet………………..

Then and now
Were all going to cause an ice age. Were all going to fry.
No sea ice remaining in the arctic. Arctic ice actually increased.
Polar bears are dying off. Church hill bear population on the increase.

Hydrogen cars will be everywhere. The exhaust will only be water.
It only takes 10 times the oil energy to make hydrogen.
Electric cars no emissions. Except the tonnes of heavy metals and the energy used to make the batteries that have to be replaced every five to seven years.

The carbon foot print is small to ship crude oil from half way round the world from scum bag countries. Its is supposed to be safer than Canadian oil. It is good for the country to send billions in jobs and money out of Canada. Canadian oil is dirty and should be left in the ground.

Take your beer fridge out of the basement and save energy and the planet.
I have seven homes and I studied fruit fly,s. I am exempt because I am a scientist.

“Note: The Mop and Pail finally has finally reported on the antics of the Girl Groper.”

It reads more like an attempt to sweep it under the carpet as a no news item.

From the article: “Mr. Trudeau said last weekend he remembered the festival, but did not think anything “negative” happened that day. Speaking to reporters in Toronto on Thursday, Mr. Trudeau said he had reflected on the incident further and understands that the woman involved might have a different view of what happened. He did acknowledge that he apologized at the time, with the editorial quoting him as saying he was sorry for being “so forward.” “I’m responsible for my side of the interaction, which certainly, as I said, I don’t feel was in any way untoward,” Mr. Trudeau said at the news conference.” … Mr. Trudeau did not elaborate on what happened. He dismissed a call for an independent investigation into the incident."

He is only apologetic in the sense that he was called out again on this issue but not for his actions – he still believes he did nothing wrong.

Ontario is no longer buying the man made climate change hysteria being promulgated by the Green Meanies of the far left. Please Junior, please keep telling everyone that man made climate change is real and how your carbon tax is going to save the planet.

I see this event as not all “negative” however.., The Boy Blunder trying to lecture Ford just goes to reinforce the negative view of Liberals, federal and provincial, that the residents of Ontario – Canada’s most populous province – clearly rejected on June 7th… Some people learned from that election, others, obviously, didn’t… Just keep it up Boy Blunder, just keep it up!…

Somebody please explain to me why the conservative premier of Manitoba is in favor of a carbon tax.

I just hope Ford has the stones to stand up to the MSM (and the globalist cabal behind them) when they start attacking him and his family. They’ll hire researchers and detectives to dig up any dirt they can find to embarrass him and push him into resigning.

Grope a Dope Trudeau educating Doug Ford on climate change. That’s rich. A small education fee of 400 M bucks aught to cover it.

How ironic, while Trudeea is mtg with Ford, Trudeau is asked about his groping of the female reporter.

Tammie P-Z….said," I think it’s hilarious Trudeau told the press he had to “educate” Ford…. the dancing/preening PM is two tomatoes short of a thick sauce! "
I agree, the more I think of it, the funnier it gets; Trudeau teaching anybody about Government affairs. I wonder if he told Ford the truth about the deal he made with his master George Sorris about open borders and so-called Refugees.

I have to give JT one advantage over Ford, that being it would be difficult for him to teach Ford the East Indian Dances that Trudeau did in India.
All kidding aside, Trudeau’s face looked upset; I do not think the meeting went too well

Ron, I would have liked to have been a fly on the wall during the conversation between Trudeau and Ford.

Tammie P-Z,….Yes I did hear talk about Refugees, but I didn’t bring it up as I didn’t want the Trolls to interrupt Climate talks and say something stupid like, “We were all Immigrants.”
Now that I’ve crossed my own line, I wish Ford had told Trudeau, “No more fake Refugees.”
commented 2018-07-05 22:07:58 -0400
Ron, I think Trudeau also claimed he had to educate Ford on the “refugees” when Ford opposed illegal migrants entering via Quebec and being shipped to Ontario. Ford told him Ottawa should pay for it.
Trudeau called his irregular travelers refugees, can you believe that?

I will admit the ice is melting and the earth is warming ,but, carbon taxing will do absolutely nothing. This planet is being deforested at an alarming rate. WE need to be planting 10 to 15 million trees a year just to keep up with what is being cut down

Robert Hewgill, thanks for the link. I recall hearing about the death threats a few months ago… incredibly horrible & unbelievable there are ecoterrorists targeting government officials!

Trudeau and Ford had their first meeting today. Two items of interest were discussed according to Trudeau’s Interview with CTV.
1. The PM actually said that " He had to educate Ford about Canada’s responsibilities to the world." (re Climate Change)
2. Trudeau mentioned that he had a 400 million money transfer in the works for Ontario, however he will have to reconsider it, if Ontario vacates their Carbon Tax program.

CTV’s Don Martin said that, he couldn’t believe how Trudeau insulted Ford. (#1.)
Marc Morano was spot on, when he told Ezra that they would come after Ford. (A 400 Million dollar bribe from Trudeau.)

In From There to Here, I wrote:
“Also climate change is big business: For the media catastrophic climate change makes for sensational stories. For Environmental Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s) it helps raise donations. They tell you that the world is coming to an end, so donate so they can fight the evil villains. For Politicians, they can claim to be saving the world. One actually had the tenacity to suggest that the oceans would stop rising and the earth would heel because of his election. For Businesses, it is good to look green. For the Environmental businesses there are subsidies, guarantees, carbon credits and bail outs to be had. For Consultants and other Professionals, there is the business of advising business and NGO’s on how to navigate the rules, and obtain grants, subsidies and guarantees. For Academics and Universities, there are research grants and other public and private money to pursue. Climate Change is big business; I call it the Climate Change Gravy Train.”

President Trump sent a tweet this afternoon confirming he accepted Scott Pruitt’s resignation from the EPA. The acting Administrator is Andrew Wheeler and he assumes his duties on Monday July 9th.

Pruitt quit because of the the threats and harassment to him and his family, and Trump’s failure to put boots on the ground to protect his people.

We conservatives give up to quickly. How did the climate pushers get so much power? They just kept on pushing. Like glaciers can move huge bolders, they’ve shifted society dangerously to the left. But facts truly are stubborn things. We need to keep on pushing reality on these deluded leftists and on low-information citizens. If we give up, we surrender the field to our enemies and the enemies of freedom.

Marc Morano’s recommendation of completing a cost/benefit analysis for each environmental initiative or new policy makes sense….in Trudeau’s case, he is more interested in a gender analysis and refuses to tell Canadians how much the carbon tax scheme will cost us.

The so called science behind the global warming scam has been debunked over and over again, and all their lies exposed. However, they are not going away, because it’s not about the mythical global warming. They’re going to have to be taken out.

SIX ISSUES THAT ARE AGENDA 21

It’s because all of Agenda 21 policy is built on the premise that man is destroying the Earth. Climate Change is their “proof.” To eliminate that premise is to remove all credibility and purpose for their entire agenda. They are willing to go to any length, even lies, to keep the climate change foot on our throats.

On the local level this translates into planning policy that controls energy use and the efforts to cut down on the use of cars, enforcement of the building of expensive light rail train systems and bike paths and installation of smart meters, etc.

They’ve been spinning the same man made global cooling/warming/climate change doomsday scenarios since at least the 1970’s. They just keep re-dating them & recycling them over & over again. Their “solutions” never line up with the “problems” they’re supposed to be dealing with but always cost a fortune.

The Paris agreement was not about meeting emission targets. It was about giving themselves the green light to bring in green scams in the effort to meet those useless goals.

Scott Pruitt resigned today BTW. He finally had enough of the endless attacks on himself & his family. Knowing Trump, he’ll be replaced by someone that will trigger the left even more.
