Climate czar John Kerry said during an appearance on “CBS This Morning” that we have nine years left to avert a climate catastrophe and there’s “no room for B.S.” when it comes to climate change.
Kerry told CBS News’ Ben Tracey that, given the 2018 projection that we had 12 years left to avoid a climate disaster, three years later we now have nine years left. He also said that initial mandates put forth in the 2016 Paris Climate Accord will not be enough.
Damon starred in the climate change and refugee-themed movie Downsizing. He also starred in the anti-fracking movie Promised Land.
Hollywood celebrities including Harrison Ford, Leonardo DiCaprio, John Legend, and Chrissy Teigen have been criticized for promoting climate change activism while taking private jets to fly around the world. In one instance, DiCaprio flew roundtrip from France to New York in a private jet to accept an environmental award in 2016.
Private jets emit as much as 20 times more carbon dioxide per passenger mile than a commercial airliner, according to studies.
Microsoft founder Bill Gates is pushing drastic and ‘fundamental’ changes to the economy in order to immediately halt the release of greenhouse gasses – primarily carbon dioxide – and ‘go to zero’ in order to save the planet from long-prognosticated (and consistently wrong) environmental disaster.
Changes we’ll need to make in order to realize Gates’ vision include:
- Allocating $35 billion per year on climate and clean energy research.
- Electric everything.
- Widespread consumption of fake meat, since cows account for ‘4% of all greenhouse gases.’
- Retooling the steel and cement industries, which Gates says account for 16% of all carbon dioxide emissions, to inject up to 30% of captured C02 into concrete, and create a different type of steel.
- Widespread adoption of next generation nuclear energy to supplement wind and solar.
And since producing plants to make fake meat emits gases as well, Gates has backed a company which uses fungus to make sausage and yogurt, which the billionaire calls “pretty amazing.”
“When you say fungi, do you mean like mushroom or a microbe?” asked Anderson Cooper in a recent “60 Minutes” interview to promote Gates’ new book, “How to Avoid a Climate Disaster.”
“It’s a microbe,” replied Gates, adding “The microbe was discovered in the ground in a geyser in Yellowstone National Park. Without soil or fertilizer it can be grown to produce this nutritional protein — that can then be turned into a variety of foods with a small carbon footprint.”
It looks like Bill Gates isn’t just relying on the potential of sun-dimming technology to save humans from a climate change fate he says awaits unless something is done, because the Microsoft co-founder is already warning the masses that they’ll be required to make some sacrifices. Gates made the comments in a “60 Minutes” segment with Anderson Cooper.
A Massachusetts climate official said people who heat their homes and fuel their cars will need to have their “will” broken in order to combat emissions and climate change.
“I know one thing that we found in our analysis is that 60% of our emissions come from … residential heating and passenger vehicles,” said David Ismay, Massachusetts, undersecretary for climate change, during a virtual meeting with the Vermont Climate Council. “Let me say that again: 60% of our emissions that need to be reduced come from you, the person on your street, the senior on fixed-income. Right now, there is no bad guy left, at least in Massachusetts, to point the finger at and turn the screws on and now break their will, so they stop emitting. That’s you. We have to break your will.”
Ismay reasoned that climate agencies were running out of options.
“We can’t have no offshore wind, no transmission, no solar, and have clean energy,” he said. “Something has to give. There has to be some mechanism we trust to find a place to site a transmission line.”
But Ismay also admitted his remarks would not be popular.
“I can’t even say that publicly,” Ismay said.
That prediction seemingly came to fruition when the state’s Republican Gov. Charlie Baker got wind of the statements, which he insisted “no one who works in our administration should ever say or think.”
15 years after the release of Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth, none of the film’s dire climate change predictions have come to pass.
However, in the 15 years since the documentary was produced, its creator has raked in millions of dollars from the entire “global warming” scam, and is now poised to become “our first carbon billionaire.”
In the 2006 film, Gore made a number of wild claims regarding what we could expect to see happening over the next few years due to global warming, but virtually all of his alarmist prognostications have turned out to be false.
