Biden taps John Kerry as Presidential climate envoy – Expect merging of COVID & Climate – Kerry: ‘You could just as easily replace the words climate change with COVID-19’

Reposted from Climate Depot

Marc Morano: “Former Sec. of State John Kerry is poised to merge ‘climate change’ with COVID-19. Climate and COVID are intertwined in Kerry’s worldview and he will be eager to hitch up the climate ‘solutions’ to the COVID remedies. Expect COVID lockdowns to morph into climate lockdowns.”

John Kerry on coronavirus & climate change: ‘The parallels are screaming at us’ – ‘Cost of climate inaction will match — if not exceed — our current expenditures’– 

“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…The long-term parallels between this pandemic and tomorrow’s gathering storm of climate crisis are more clear.” – “If the economic devastation of the coronavirus pandemic is costly today, the cost of climate inaction will match — if not exceed — our current expenditures, which is why the next administration must act with urgency on day one.” – John Kerry, former Sec. of State

Former Sec. of State John Kerry on ‘the parallels between the coronavirus and the climate crisis’: “Climate change is a threat multiplier for pandemic diseases, and zoonotic diseases — 70 percent of all human infections — are impacted by climate change and its effect on animal migration and habitats.”

President-elect Joe Biden has tapped former Secretary of State John Kerry as a special presidential envoy for climate, the Biden-Harris transition said Monday. Kerry will sit on the National Security Council, marking the first time the NSC will include an official dedicated to the issue, the transition said. Kerry’s was one of several names released by Biden’s team on Monday, along with secretary of state nominee Antony Blinken and nominee for United Nations ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield.

Kerry is perfectly correct. The COVID manufactured “crisis” is just an extension of the AGW “crisis”. Neither have anything to do with science an are all about destruction of society and life as we know it.

The destruction of our basic freedoms is the logical next step from non-existent “existential crisis”.

You could just as easily replace the words “eliminate fossil fuels” with “toss virgins into bonfires to appease the Sky Dragon.” It’s apt to have similar effects.

Left out of these panicky proposals:

1. There’s no proof that reducing CO2 will have any measurable effect on climate. Climate change is much more complex than that. Alarmists’ implicit assumption is that CO2 is the control knob for climate, but the chance that’s true is slim to none.

2. Left out of these drastic action/existential threat jeremiads is the fact that China passed the U.S. in CO2 emissions 20 years ago. China also produces & consumes about half the steel and concrete in the entire world. Both materials have high “carbon footprints” and are essential to modern life. All the hand-wringing over “infrastructure” is meaningless without steel and concrete. China knows that. Americans apparently do not — another grave failure of U.S. education.

3. Even if the U.S. does reduce CO2, China, India and Africa will not. That’s about 4 billion people who aren’t alarmed vs. 330 million who are alarmed, or pretend to be.

4. In short, the Kerry/Gore shtick about climate is ludicrous and counterproductive. Lefties are always worried about “what the neighbors will think” — AKA ‘How other countries regard the United States.” Aren’t they worried that the rest of the world will notice how stupid we are, and what blockheads we choose for leaders?

2022 also comes into play.
See it from their perspective.

They need to keep biden appearing as centered (and lucid) as possible through 2022 to try to hold as many House and Senate seats as possible. If biden is gone, or tries to give too much credence to the squats, or he is drooling too much, then during the 2022 cycle (when they can’t send harris out to stump for the dems because in most cases she is a liability) they will know they are screwed.

They will lie, cheat, steal, and do anything they can to hold or win. But they won’t be able to coordinate as well as during the 2022 cycle.

In 2023, when biden is limited to the soft food diet, they will need to determine who will be their candidate. harris …? She will want it, but others will know she can’t win it. The only way they can win will be the continuance of the cheat and steal.

It’s time to begin an all out assault on Global Warming and Climate Change. What is needed is to provide technical and scientific information to members of the Congressional members so they can attempt to do their best to attack the basics behind the MYTHS. Of course this will be difficult as they will often state that ‘97% of scientist believe in CO2 as a contributor to global warming’. In fact, as pointed out in the book (Inconvenient Truths) this is not true. Members of this site have all of the facts, however, the facts stored on a web site don’t contribute to stopping foolish actions by Congress.

A Biden administration will do whatever it can to undermine all Trump accomplishments, including his mid east peace efforts, otherwise, they must give Trump credit for a job well done and that would undermine their strategy of hate and loathing. Trump should leave Biden a house warming gift of coordinating with those in the peace deal and taking out Iran’s nuclear facilities. That would definitely get in the way of Kerry getting cozy with the Mullahs.

The miracle cure ingredient appears to the approach of summer as much as anything else. Let us see what happens when the Southern Hemisphere winter returns. One thing is for sure, we have flattened the covid curve by flattening our economy. The borrowing in my state is largely to finance government jobs and public infrastructure that may end up like olympic games stadiums. But…lots of people are cheering, the ones who already don’t pay any tax or who have jobs are in government. You should hear them – gee they are right into economics, they know all about public debt and taking advantage of low interest rates and how Keynes = digging and filling in holes in the ground = growth in GDP.

COVID19 cases are low in far-east Asia and Oceania because Asians have a natural T-cell immunity to Coronaviruses due to long exposures to them over the centuries, and also because the strains of COVID19 are weaker than in Europe/Americas…

Yes, this seems to be the major factor which determines a population’s susceptibility.

Izaak, I hate to break it to you but “by over 6 million votes” is a meaningless number because it’s not popular votes that elect presidents in the US, it’s the electoral college, and the EC result hasn’t been certified yet. While it looks likely Biden will prevail (God help us all) it’s not a done deal until the election results have been certified (Will be happening over the course of the next couple of weeks, barring any legal delays that might or might come out of the lawsuits) and the EC electors have cast their votes (happens in Dec) and those votes counted up in the House (Occurs in Jan).

As to “evidence of fraud” there’s plenty of that to be found, if you don’t cover your eyes and plug your ears. The dead vote has been know about for so long it’s become a cliché, Lots of “glitches” that all magically go the same direction. Election rules changed not by the legislatures (the only body allowed to make such changes), Safeguards that were lowered (and in some cases dropped altogether) in the name of the pandemic, make fraud easier to accomplish and harder to detect, it won’t be easy to separate the fraudulent votes from the legal ones.

Whether there’s sufficient amount of it that can be proven and that would affect the outcome of the election is for the courts to decide. Ultimately, it’ll be up to the Trump team to make their case in a court of law. Until they have their day in court, you don’t know what evidence they will present and pretending otherwise just shows us all that you are as stupid as you appear in most of your posts. The odds are certainly stacked against President Trump but we let Gore & Bush have their day in court in 2000 (remember that one? Gore didn’t conceded – or rather he did but than quickly withdrew it – and the lawsuits continued until mid-Dec. when the Supreme Court final ruled on the issue), no reason not to let Trump have his in 2020, what are you afraid of? that the courts will find that there really was fraud going on?

Rich,
For something that is so obvious such as massive fraud one has to ask is where are the arrests? Barr apparently told the FBI to look into voting irregularities and yet nothing has happened. If there is evidence of fraud then Trump’s lawyers need to produce it in court and that they have failed to do and when questioned claim they don’t have evidence of it.

And the article you mention just says that 2020 was an unusual year. Which should not come as a surprise to anyone and doesn’t demonstrate fraud in any way.

It would be nice if you left-wingers could make an attempt to acknowledge inconvenient facts and stop clinging to your narratives. For my part, I have tried to do that. I acknowledged that mail-in ballots might have enabled the Dems to perfectly harvest their potential voters without fraud. But if so, why is this concentrated in just a few large cities, conveniently in swing states? If you were an honest person, you’d acknowledge that something is wrong there.

The reason that there are no arrests is because the evidence was destroyed during the crime. Are there video recordings of the counting process? No. Is there proper chain of custody evidence for ballots? No. Is there any way to associate the voter registration data with the ballots that have been separated from their outer envelopes? No.

While we can’t expect arrests for crimes where the evidence has been successfully destroyed, it is still very feasible to demonstrate that the results are so far out of the norm that the probability of it being legitimate is miniscule. We can “know” without being able to “prove”.

The only remedy for these crimes is to invalidate the vote in the jurisdictions where the fraud occurred. That is almost certainly not going to happen, because overwhelming statistical evidence is not proof. So it looks like your boys have gotten away with it.

Izaak Walton
Reply to  Izaak Walton
November 25, 2020 9:49 am

Rich,
knowing without being able to prove is never going to stand up in court. It is perhaps the definition of religion rather than science. It is worth noting that the results of the election matched the polls in 48 out of 50 states and the surprise of the election was that Trump did so well in Florida compared to the polls. So perhaps you should be looking at potential fraud in Florida for Trump rather than the other way around.

If there was fraud on the scale you suggested then there would be lots of evidence from the sheer size of it. Somebody would have had to get 100 000 ballots, illegally mark them distribute them to various polling centres, make sure that the voting register did not show the same person voted twice etc etc. Any conspiracy that big would have had leakers and somebody would have tipped off the FBI. Plus somehow they would have to have manipulated every poll since February which showed that Trump was losing.

What rubbish! Science is the advancement of hypotheses that can never be proven, only disproven. A hypothesis that predicts an outcome and is not disproven, advances to a theory which after many attempts at disproving may be referred to as a Law. But in science, (unlike in your climastrology religion), nothing can ever be proven. Knowing (provisionally) without proving is the definition of science. Believing without objective evidence is the definition of religion. Proof is for the realm of logic and math.

I’m not sure why I imagined that you would engage honestly. You misrepresent the article from the link I posted, which explains why a massive conspiracy is not required to achieve the fix. It requires a few criminals in four cities to create fraudulent voter registrations and then submit fraudulent ballots for them. They don’t need to know that a fake person didn’t already vote.

There is evidence in the form of eyewitness affidavits and statistical anomalies. I agree that the evidence is not likely to be sufficient to prevail in a court of law. Not because it is not evidence, but because it is not sufficient evidence to “prove beyond a reasonable doubt” (a legal term of art), or because it is not considered admissible evidence for one reason or another. Just as polygraph tests are not admissible evidence in a court case, even though government agencies routinely rely on them to make decisions about people’s veracity, it is most likely not admissible evidence to point to statistical anomalies as a form of evidence in a court case. That doesn’t mean that it is not scientific evidence that should persuade a reasonable person that there was foul play.

But we would be talking about reasonable people.

Rich,
Currently Biden won the popular vote by over 6 million which is about 4 percent of the votes cast. Given that result why are you surprised that he won the battleground states by a narrow margin? The chances of someone losing the popular vote and winning the electoral college is about 4 percent based on historical averages so given that Biden won the popular vote by a large margin you should expect him to have won in the electoral college as well. There is no statistical anomalies in Biden’s vote. Most media outlets were warning before the election that Trump was likely to get most of votes on election day but that Biden would get significantly more of the postal votes and thus would only emerge as the winner several days after the election which is in fact what happened.

Fraudulent voter registrations are easy to check. All you have to do is knock on the door and ask who lives there. Or check with other governments departments about valid addresses. There would be a clear paper trail of thousands of people who are registered but who don’t exist. In many states and countries anyone can walk up and inspect the voter rolls. So where is the evidence of false registrations?

Izaak Walton, if you are a US citizen, which I’m not, then you don’t understand the method by which a US President is elected. At this time, 25 November, no result has been announced, and will not be announced until the Electoral Colleges meet and declare the winner by democratic votes on December 14, 2020. Only then, will Trump be required to vacate the White House and until then he has the democratic right to challenge the legality of all disputed voted. And well he may lose!

Tony,
Trump has every right to challenge the legality of the election results. However so far his legal team are failing and appear comically inept, from having a press conference next to a sex shop to having dye run down one’s face. And their cases keep getting thrown out of court. Trump is also apparently using the legal challenges as a means to pay off his election debts since the fine print of the emails sent round asking for money states that over 50% will go towards paying off campaign debts. In Milwaukee a Trump lawyer is trying to disqualify a number of ballots including his own claiming they were cast illegally.

And finally even if the remaining lawsuits are decided in Trump’s favour it still will not change the result. So Trump needs to find some competent lawyers if he wants to get anywhere with his legal challenges. His current ones are failing him and making him look ridiculous.

“Look, the USA under Biden has a centre right govt”

If Biden eventually wins, the USA will have a Criminal Enterprise government. All the same Obama administration criminals that trashed the U.S. Constituion in an effort to steal the 2016 presidential election for the Democrats will have been put back in charge of governing the USA.

As we see from 2016, these Criminal Democrats will do anything legal or illegal, to keep their political power, so what do you think they are going to do in the future? Answer: Anything legal or illegal it takes to retain their political power. They will rig elections and prevent any investigations of such things, and they will keep themselves in power in perpetuity. It’s the way Xi operates in China.

We better get down on our knees are pray that the Kraken comes out swiinging and/or that Republicans win the senate races in Georgia, otherwise, we are at the mercy of Democrats who have no mercy. Get in their way and they will crush you. And everyone sees they can do it. They have control of the means of forming public opinion in the lying Leftwing Media and they have control of the power of the federal government and are not deterred from using it to their advantage. They have it all, and if they have no scruples, and they don’t, then they will destroy their political opposition using all means possible. This election was just the first salvo in the Demcrats war on our personal freedoms.

If Taiwan can sink enough PLAN landing craft. shoot down enough PLAAF fighters and sink PLAN ships, then they can fend off the invasion.
I think if Trump can supply them with enough advanced arms in the next 2 months, then Taiwan can make both the CCP and the kowtowing Biden Admin look weak as Taiwan can prevail against a PLAN invasion.

If Biden takes Office, then the Chicoms will no longer feel political pressure to threaten to attack Taiwan. Biden isn’t going to be signing any defense agreements with Taiwan, and he won’t be selling Taiwan any advanced weaponry, and he won’t be challenging the Chicom claims to the South China Sea, including Taiwan, and he won’t be promoting Taiwan as being separate from China, so the Chicoms can relax.

Taiwan is not a threat to China so the Chicoms have no urgent need to attack Taiwan. They do have an urgent need to prevent Taiwan from gaining independance in the minds of the world, and this causes their threatening attitudes. But if Taiwan is alone, and Biden will make it so, then the Chicoms can take their time incorporating Taiwan into China.

Besides, Taiwan could do considerable damage to the Chinese military if a war were to break out. China doesn’t need that. Taiwan isn’t going anywhere and it looks like favorable winds are blowing in China’s direction. China can afford to sit back and relax and let events unfold now that pressure from Trump is gone.

Trump is one of the few leaders who understands “The Big Picture”. Without someone who understands the Big Picture at the helm, we drift aimlessly, and more likely than not, into a lot of avoidable trouble. No Democrat I know understands the Big Picture.

The Leftists just have a different “Big Picture”. Their Big Picture is them being in absolute power.

When I was a young kid, there was a weekly television show named “The Big Picture”. It was a program that focused on politics and military events from around the world. It was a very informative program and gave me a sense of where the US and everyone else in the world stood at that particular time.

That’s what I mean when I say The Big Picture. All dictators undestand the Big Picture because their survival depends on understanding it. Sometimes they misunderstand it, which leads to their downfall.

Politicians in the Western Democracies, especially leftist politicians, do not seem to understand the Big Picture. They have a dangerous gullibility when it comes to human nature. They have an aversion to confronting dictators to begin with, and so fool themselves into thinging they can reason with psychopathic murderers and dictators. So they live in a dangerous Dream World, and definitely don’t see the Big Picture through their delusions. The dictators see the Western politicians are fooling themselves and take advantage of the situation to the detriment of the West.

Trump, on the other hand, does see the Big Picture, has seen it for decades, and when he got the chance, he took actions to make the United States safer. Biden will reverse all these actions if he has a chance.

As former Defense Secretary Gates, who worked in the Obama-Biden administration, says, Joe Biden has not been right on foreign policy in the last 40 years.

John Kerry is a bit confused. He thinks the cost of climate inaction “will equal or exceed the current expenditure.” The reality is it that it will be the cost of climate ACTION that will exceed the current expenditure. A more astute analysis would have used the disproportionate pandemic responses (which have had little effect on the outcomes, by the way), as a cautionary tale against taking similarly ill thought out disproportionate action which will cost dearly and have even less impact on “climate change” than the covid responses have had on the pandemic. And that is really saying something.

Vincent,
You are right.
According to UN IPCC SR 15 (October 2018) the cost of “action” i.e. ‘combatting climate change’ this century is estimated at US $122 trillion.
That is just one estimate before you get to consider ‘Green New Deal’ figures.
Bjorn Lomborg gives a figure of US $1 trillion to $2 trillion a year going forward.
But the stale mantra of ‘the cost of inaction will exceed the cost of action’ keeps getting recycled ( now by John Kerry).
It is always unaccompanied by any credible figures to support the proposition because there aren’t any.

Talk about funding the wrong bunch. They made everything was about race baiting, not helping. They move any further left. They will have to make a right turn just to speak english. The GND policies. Look what they did already to the UK, Australia. This election was stolen. For a man who was lucky to draw 50 people to a rally versus 5-10 thousand for Trump. Using the voting machines that kept the dictators in power. With the honest elections in Venezuela ? The MSM is anything but honest.

It’s going to be up to Congress now, especially the Senate, to hold the line against the Climate Comrades, in their attempts at Making America Weak Again. It’s going to be a long four years. The battle lines are drawn. For Republicans, there can be no “honeymoon” period. It is war from Day One. The only question is, are they up to the challenge?

And they’ll pretend it was all kosher, and act really offended when you call them flat-out what they are.

Forgive me for doing so, but I have to say this one more time: Trump had 4 years to debunk the climate alarmist narrative, and he did next to nothing. There was never any guarantee that he would win on Nov. 3rd. In the absence of the success of his legal challenges, we will have four years of Biden and of climate alarmism shoved down our throats regardless of its scientific validity.

I don’t know why Trump chose to allow the climate alarmist narrative to remain in place unchallenged with the sizable body of science which places serious doubt on its validity, but now we may be paying a dear price for it in the next 4 years…. and maybe beyond.

There are probably only a minority of people here in the U.S. and in the world who truly understand the serious scientific shortcomings of the CAGW theory, and they will probably be ignored and silenced more than ever for the next 4 years (maybe locked up?). Most people in govt, in academia, in the mass media and most of the American people still believe the notion of a climate crisis, so the pushback against it and challenge to it had to come from the top. It did not.

Don’t know if Trump is going to regret his inaction on debunking this issue, but I know I am already. The ignorance of Biden and Kerry on climate is truly profound, and it frankly scares me. Linking climate change with the COVID-19 virus pandemic is the height of stupidity in the absence of scientific evidence. That is clearly a religious statement, and I will guess that Biden and Kerry have little real understanding of the difference between religion and science to begin with.

As Tired Old Nurse said above, we may indeed be SO screwed for the next 4 years. I pray that we are not, but God help us anyway.

A prime example is the Paris Agreement, which he viewed as “unfair”, as opposed to being completely wrong-headed. His thinking, as far as it went, was always way too one-dimensional. Having said that, though, I’m not sure there ever was a possible Rep candidate who would have stood up to the rest of the world, and thumbed his nose at the Paris “Agreement”. These next few years, they need to get busy and find one.

I don’t think Trump was unaware or uninterested. He was trying to deflect and avoid a substantive debate that he reckoned might lose him some votes. Everyone can theoretically oppose an unfair deal, even if they think climate change is dangerous. Few of us would abandon him for avoiding a full-throated condemnation of climastrology when the practical outcome was no support for “climate action”.

You might have noticed this tactic in the debate where he didn’t like windmills but he liked solar except that it’s not there yet. Pure distraction.

Mark:

When I said “nothing”, I was only talking about pushing back against the CAGW narrative. I acknowledge that Trump did a very good job with the economy prior to the COVID-19 lockdown, I do not argue with that. I did not say that the climate is THE most important issue, and obviously the economy is significantly more important.

My point is that if you want the undermine the game plans of those you oppose, you have to go to the heart of their plans and show why their plans are on shaky ground and don’t hold up when critically analyzed. When the opposition’s argument and beliefs are widely accepted in govt, science, the media and elsewhere, it is probably not easy to “drain the swamp” of those beliefs when one realizes that they don’t hold up under scrutiny and critical analysis.

Fact, sound science, logic and reasoning are not the hallmarks of the Democrats when those things don’t serve the Left’s ideological and political purposes. I don’t know if the Republicans will ever produce someone who would make significantly greater use of facts, sound science, logic and reasoning against the Democrats. It would be great if they did.

Only a day after Biden formally announces Kerry to be his “climate czar” (aka Special Presidential Envoy for Climate), John is already providing some of the best humor to be found on the Web.

According to Kerry, as quoted in the above article: ““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…”

So, according to this Boston College Law School-educated “brilliant mind”, we all can look forward to:
— climate change™ lockdowns
— increasing hospitalizations and hospital ICUs overflowing from those infected by climate change™
— warp-speed development of one or more climate change™ vaccines
— intranational and international travel bans to prevent the global spread of climate change™
— fast-response, free testing of all citizens in all countries to see document those those that test positive for the dangerous memes of climate change™ “denial” or doubt.

Ladies and gentlemen, you just couldn’t make up this stuff if you tried!

Someone . . . please send John Kerry a dictionary with the word “pandemic” bookmarked so that he can be educated on what that term actually means. BTW, exactly how does one “defer” a pandemic???

But it possibly could have been much worse (i.e., funnier) if Biden had appointed AOC to this position.

Then whatever military America has left after the Biden budget cuts to the military will not be able to function as wind mills do not power tanks or aircraft carriers.
China will attack Taiwan and sink a few American aircraft carriers. Biden will declare victory and sue for peace.
All Americas enemies will then smell blood in the water and stop using the USD.

The most thoughtful comment on this thread so far today.

Of course you are assuming Georgia elects at least one Republican Senator.

If the Dems get both then with the Senate they will do whatever they want for 2 years which MAY create a perfect storm on 2022 and landslide takeover of the House by Republicans and possible Senate flip, then the Media will blame the Republicans for not working with Kamala to do what is “best”, or, usually they media says “the smart” thing to do, which, of course is whatever the Dems say.

Let’s have this debate.

Skeptics say you can’t prove what you claim about CO2, so prove your claims and show the skeptics wrong. If you can. I’m betting on the skeptics being correct that you cannot prove what you claim.

How long will it be before the Democrats take aim at the skeptics? They have to shut us up because we expose their climate change exaggerations and lies. And now they may have the power to censor skeptics.

Ole Griff says he feels real safe in the UK but that’s only because Griff doesn’t violate the censorship laws put in place there by his Leftists Masters.

Well, first John Kerry needs to state what exactly he means by the term “climate change” . . . so far nobody else has done this successfully.

His future boss, Joe Biden, has officially declared “climate change™” to be a “climate crisis” (trademark pending).

So, is climate change/climate crisis:
— the world getting hotter in summers, or colder in winters?
— the world suffering from flooding, or from droughts?
— the world suffering from too much CO2, or too little CO2 for optimum crop growth to feed humanity?
— the world suffering from too much cloud cover, or too little cloud cover?
— the world suffering from too much or too little atmospheric water vapor (the predominant greenhouse gas)?
— the world suffering from its oceans shifting very slightly in average pH (range of 8.2-8.1)?
— the world suffering from too many insects (pests), or too few insects (species extinction)?
— the world suffering from too many El Ninos, or too many La Ninas?
— the world suffering from too much wind (claimed increase in storms of all types) or too little wind (for windmill power farms to be reliable)?
— the world suffering from currently being in an interglacial period, as opposed to being in a glacial period?
— the world suffering from too many Greta Thunbergs, or too few?
— all of the above, or none of the above but something else?

Hey . . . here’s an idea . . . lets first spend some $billions to find out exactly what we want to change (and whether or not that is even possible) before we set off the spend $trillions to “fix” a problem that might not even be fixable, let alone exist in the first place.

https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fpubh.2020.604339/full

“This analysis shows that higher Covid-19 mortality rates are mostly found in countries experiencing higher life expectancies and showing a recent slowdown of this progression. Most of these developed and aging societies are latitudinally located over the 25° parallel. They also have higher GDP and chronic diseases levels (e.g., CVD and cancer) associated with major metabolic risk factors (e.g., inactive lifestyle, sedentarity, and obesity). High temperature and UV levels are associated with low death rates such that northern and western countries pay the most severe toll to Covid-19.”

The SUPPLY SIDE CARBON EMISSION CONTROL PLAN (SSCECP).

Commenting on another article on WUWT, David Wojick said earlier this month that:

“The American system is specifically designed so that the President has far less power than in the parliamentary system, where he would be head of Congress as well. No kings. Checks and balances. Biden can do very little without full Congressional support, which he will not have.”

The last paragraph from Wojick’s article Biden’s False Climate Promises says this:

“People running for President should only promise to do what Presidents can actually do. They cannot speak for Congress so should not pretend to. Biden’s climate promises are so false they are absurd. You can’t get there from here.”

The reality here is this. Congressional buy-in isn’t needed if the goal is simply to achieve a quick reduction in America’s GHG emissions by any means necessary and without regard to the political consequences. Drawing upon existing legislation in the areas of environmental protection and national security, the president and the Executive Branch already have all the authority needed to enforce a steep reduction in America’s carbon emissions on a fast track schedule.

What would constitute a ‘fast track schedule’? It would be President Obama’s original goal, as he stated it in 2012, of an 80% reduction in America’s GHG emissions by 2050, using 2005 as the baseline.

Climate activist politicians can spend all the money they want to on low carbon energy technology and on Green New Deal projects. Energy conservation is the only way to close the gap between what low-carbon technology can accomplish and what the 80% GHG reduction target demands. In making the transition to the 80% target, strictly enforced energy conservation measures can and must be the most important resource management tool being applied.

The bottom line is that if the 80% GHG reduction target is to be met, Americans must be using half as much energy on a per-capita basis in 2050 as we do today in 2020. If climate change is to be managed in the way the incoming Biden administration will be managing the COVID-19 pandemic, then what amounts to a fossil energy lockdown must be imposed, a.k.a. fuel rationing.

Why rely on the EPA and the Executive Branch?

Fifty years of environmental legislation places responsibility for controlling and reducing emissions of substances identified as dangerous pollutants into the hands of the president and the Environmental Protection Agency. The US Supreme Court has ruled that the process Obama’s EPA followed in identifying carbon emissions as pollutants under the Clean Air Act was proper and so let stand the EPA’s 2009 endangerment finding for carbon.

Other legislation places responsibility for management of critical national security issues into the hands of the president. If the world is indeed burning up because of human-generated carbon emissions, then it is easy enough for the president to argue that anthropogenic global warming (AGW) is a national security threat as well as a global security threat and so falls under the scope of existing national security law.

What will Joe Biden and his climate envoy John Kerry actually do after Biden assumes office?

If human-driven climate change is in fact the urgent crisis climate activists say that it is, a newly inaugurated President Biden has no other choice morally or ethically but to immediately impose a program of carbon fuel rationing on the American people. He must do so as soon as he enters the White House.

How could Joe Biden develop and then enforce a thirty-year carbon fuel rationing program?

Back in mid-September, 2020, I posted a plan on WUWT for reducing America’s carbon emissions 80% by 2050. That target was former President Obama’s original goal as he stated it in 2012. My intention back then, and still is now, to demonstrate how steep reductions in America’s GHG emissions can be accomplished in the absence of any new legislation from Congress.

The plan is entitled the Supply Side Carbon Emission Control Plan (SSCECP). It uses a series of executive orders which combine existing provisions of the Clean Air Act with existing provisions of national security legislation to create an integrated regulatory approach for increasing the cost of all carbon fuels and for systematically restricting their future production and commercial availability.

The SSCECP uses the power of the federal government to create and enforce an artificial shortage of fossil fuels. It directly raises the price of all carbon fuels while directly reducing their future supply and availability, doing so through a process of imposing increasingly severe restrictions on their extraction, import, production, and distribution. In COVID-19 terms, the SSCECP can accurately be described as a phased fossil energy lockdown lasting as long as thirty years.

The plan employs EPA-administered carbon pollution fines as the functional equivalent of a legislated tax on carbon. This approach supplies a powerful incentive for the state governments to participate in directly regulating America’s carbon emissions by assigning them the great bulk of the revenues produced from the EPA’s carbon pollution fines.

As a further measure, a joint inter-agency Carbon Fuels Control Board (CFCB) is established to manage and enforce a phased systematic reduction in the production and distribution of all carbon fuel products. This board would report directly to the president’s Climate Envoy, John Kerry.

As a practical expediency, the SSCECP keeps the import, production, and distribution of carbon fuels in private hands. Rather than nationalizing the oil and gas industry, the plan enlists private corporations as contracted agents in managing the government’s energy rationing programs.

The federal government also guarantees a healthy profit and a steady rate return from the sale of all carbon fuels produced by those private corporations which choose to cooperate in managing the SSCECP’s phased series of GHG reductions. This approach makes the oil and gas industry an ally, not an adversary, in quickly reducing America’s GHG emissions.

The SUPPLY SIDE CARBON EMISSION CONTROL PLAN (SSCECP) — the Major Phases:

The start and end dates listed for each major phase assume Joe Biden is inauagurated as President on January 20th, 2020.

Phase I: Establish a legal basis for regulating all of America’s carbon emissions. (2007-2020. Status complete.)
Phase II: Expand and extend regulation of carbon GHG’s to all major sources of America’s carbon emissions. (01/22/2021 – 12/31/2021)
Phase III: Establish a fully comprehensive regulatory framework for carbon. (01/01/2022 – 12/31/2022)
Phase IV: Implement the carbon pollution regulatory framework. (Year 2023 through the Year 2049)
Phase V: Declare success in reducing America’s carbon emissions 80% by 2050. (If complete by 2050 or some earlier date.)

The SUPPLY SIDE CARBON EMISSION CONTROL PLAN (SSCECP) — a Detailed Description:.

Here are the details of the plan:

Phase I: Establish a legal basis for regulating all of America’s carbon emissions. (2007-2020. Status complete.)

— File and win lawsuits to allow regulation of CO2 and other carbon GHG’s as pollutants under the Clean Air Act. (2007)

— Defend the Section 202 Endangerment Finding in the courts. (2010-2012)
— Establish a recent precedent, the COVID-19 pandemic, for taking strong government action in response to a declared national emergency. (2020)

Phase II: Expand and extend regulation of carbon GHG’s to all major sources of America’s carbon emissions. (01/22/2021 – 12/31/2021)

II.A: – Presidential Actions (Joe Biden), Phase II

II.A.1 — Issue an Executive Order declaring a carbon pollution emergency.

II.B.2 — Declare carbon emissions as Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) under CAA Section 112.
II.B.3 — Establish a National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for carbon pollution.
II.B.4 — Use the NAAQS for carbon pollution as America’s tie-in to international climate change agreements.
II.B.5 — Defend the Section 108 Endangerment Finding, the NAAQS, and the Section 112 HAP Declaration in the courts.

II.C: – CFCB Actions (Carbon Fuel Rationing), Phase II

II.C.1 — Research and publish a provisional system for government-enforced carbon fuel rationing.
II.C.2 — Defend the provisional system of carbon fuel rationing in the courts.

Phase III: Establish a fully comprehensive regulatory framework for carbon. (01/01/2022 – 12/31/2022)

Phase V: Declare success in reducing America’s carbon emissions 80% by 2050. (If complete by 2050 or some earlier date.)

— The President issues a proclamation that the target of an 80% reduction has been achieved.
— The President, the US-EPA, the US-DHS, and the US-DOE assess the need for continuing the EPA’s anti-carbon regulations and the US Government’s mandatory fuel rationing program as necessary to maintain the 80% goal.
— If a determination is reached that the government’s system of carbon control measures must continue beyond 2050, existing agreements with the states and with private sector fossil fuel producers and distributors are extended with appropriate modifications.
— Defend the government’s anti-carbon measures against emerging lawsuits if these measures must continue beyond 2050

REMARKS:

The Supply Side Carbon Emission Control Plan is completely legal and constitutional. Under current law, it can be implemented unilaterally by the Executive Branch using its existing environmental protection and national security authorities. Not another word of new legislation is needed from Congress either to enable the plan legally or to fund its operation.

Nor does the plan require a separate line of funding in the federal government’s budget. The planning activities and regulation roll-out activities are easily accomplished within the existing spending authorities of the US-EPA, the US-DOE, and the US-DHS.

Even if the House of Representatives and the Senate were both in Republican hands at some point in the next four years, and passed legislation specifically forbidding the adoption of a plan like the SSCECP, a presidential veto can kill that legislation with the stroke of a pen.

A plan like the SSCECP will generate many lawsuits. If the plan is applied with equal force against all major sources of America’s carbon emissions and with equal impact upon all affected economic sectors and demographic groups, those lawsuits will go nowhere. It is specifically designed to survive any lawsuits brought against it.

SUMMARY:

The fact remains that the Executive Branch now has all the authority it needs to quickly reduce America’s carbon emissions on a highly aggressive fast-track schedule. A plan like the SSCECP fits entirely within that authority.

What remains to be seen is whether or not President Elect Biden will use that authority when he takes office in January, 2021.

If climate change is indeed the existential threat to our existence Joe Biden claims that it is, then he is ethically and morally obligated to act in accordance with his claims and to quickly reduce America’s carbon emissions just as far and as fast as current law allows him to do.

@Beta Blocker:

“. . . .Biden can do very little without full Congressional support, which he will not have.”

If Georgia votes for both Senate Democrats on Jan 5, 2021 he will have the senate and congress – that has got to be stopped in GA.

Pennsylvania had 18 consecutive county vote batches that went 100% for Biden after 5:54 am. This is in the vote record of pennsylvania. The last fraudulent entry was the single entry that switched the vote from Trump to Biden, then normal entries continued but blatantly fraudulent ones stopped.

Just what we need, a bunch of witch-doctors in charge of policy.

Well, on the “good” side at least THEY will become richer.

“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…The long-term parallels between this pandemic and tomorrow’s gathering storm of climate crisis are more clear.” – “If the economic devastation of the coronavirus pandemic is costly today, the cost of climate inaction will match — if not exceed — our current expenditures, which is why the next administration must act with urgency on day one.” – John Kerry, former Sec. of State

NOTICE HOW THE GLOBAL WARMING CABAL HAVE LINKED THE CLIMATE CRISIS AND THE COVID-19 FLU? How child prodigies like Greta and academics in non-technical fields have spouted drivel like “to tackle Covid-19 we also have to tackle climate change”? REMEMBER THIS POINT!

We’ve demonstrated many times that alleged dangerous human-made global warming/climate change is not only false, it is fraudulent!
THE CATASTROPHIC ANTHROPOGENIC GLOBAL WARMING (CAGW) AND THE HUMANMADE CLIMATE CHANGE CRISES ARE PROVED FALSE
By Allan M.R. MacRae, B.A.Sc.(Eng.), M.Eng., January 10, 2020

There is a similar high probability that the Covid-19 full-Gulag Lockdown is also a scam. We have experienced many flu epidemics that were more dangerous than Covid-19, with NO lockdowns. Why this flu? Why now? Read my post below for details on Covid-19.

Also, why are Antifa and BLM suddenly exploding onto the scene, trashing downtowns and terrorizing people, allegedly based on the police killing of career criminal George Floyd, who violently abused women? Much better people than Floyd die every day, and nobody cares.

HINT:
All these scams are related, concocted by the Marxist Dems, and have nothing to do with the climate, the mild Covid-19 flu or USA police violence. These are Democrat planned political events by paid demonstrators, intended to derail the investigations into the attempted coup-d’état of Trump via the Russia scam and the false FBI charges against Lt.-Gen. Flynn, and to steal the election so the treasonous acts of the Obama regime remain hidden.

It’s all a smokescreen to hide the criminal activity of the Dems – Try to focus on the big picture good people – It’s not all that complicated.

THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY’S CURRENT POLICIES ARE THE QUOTES OF VLADIMIR LENIN.
“Truth is the most precious thing. That’s why we should ration it.”
“We can and must write in a language which sows among the masses hate, revulsion, and scorn toward those who disagree with us.”
“There are no morals in politics; there is only expedience. A scoundrel may be of use to us just because he is a scoundrel.”
“Free speech is a bourgeois prejudice.”
“The press should be not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organizer of the masses.”
“People always have been and they always will be stupid victims of deceit and self-deception in politics.”
“It is, of course, much easier to shout, abuse, and howl than to attempt to relate, to explain.”
“Democracy is indispensable to socialism.”
“The goal of socialism is communism.”
“The way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation.”
“Trust is good, but control is better.”
“As an ultimate objective, “peace” simply means communist world control.”
“One of the basic conditions for the victory of socialism is the arming of the workers Communist and the disarming of the bourgeoisie the middle class.”
“One man with a gun can control 100 without one.”
“Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”
“Give me just one generation of youth, and I’ll transform the whole world.”

John Kerry the ‘lip licker’, is just what America deserves. he and the rest of the O’Biden cabinet will bring us much higher gas prices, higher electricity prices and lower productivity overall. We as a nation have become ‘AMORAL’ from the killing of babies to endorsing sexual immorality. God is giving us just exactly what we as a nation deserve.
