LIVE at NOON CST: Analysis of Biden’s #COP27 Address

President Joe Biden, who feels wind in his sails after a midterm election that was not as bad as many predicted for his party, addressed the globalist crowd at COP27 today.

In today’s episode of Climate Change Roundtable, The Heartland Institute’s Andy Singer, Anthony Watts, Linnea Lueken, and H. Sterling Burnett offer instant analysis of his speech, what it means for American climate and energy policy, and if it will make any difference to the world.

“a midterm election that was not as bad as many predicted for his party”

I’ve been reading and hearing this statement quite a bit since yesterday and I’d like to address it from the standpoint of “not an American”.

So, I suppose the not elephant in the room was the not red wave, whatever that was to mean. Seems everyone had their own idea of what that would be along with a prediction of success or failure.

Most of what I read predicted that the Democratic Party would lose the House and possibly the Senate. They’ve lost the House and possibly, the Republican’s will have the Senate by one?? I think the Republicans are waiting on Alaska to prove that possibility.

However, beyond the obvious and what no one is talking about, is the dramatic shift in governance across the electoral board, municipal, county and State. I believe the red wave did take place. Not in Washington, but in the hinterland. The places where real people live their lives.

I’d like to see some solid reportage on this as I think the Republicans are leading in the numbers legislatively all across the US.

Take heart center-right America. The future looks good.

As another ‘not an American’ I agree, and would like to add the following: Yes there was indeed a red wave, but it didn’t look like the red wave predicted by Donald Trump. The reason is that Americans are no longer following Donald Trump in the same numbers as before. Donald Trump’s presidency was chaotic, partly because Democrats and their supporters (the media and big tech) did everything to create chaos but mainly because part of Donald Trump’s modus operandi is chaotic. It may work very well for him in business, but it’s hard to make it work in politics.

What happened in the mid-term elections was to my mind quite astounding. The American public has somehow managed to vote overall in exactly the way that gives them the best possible outcome, subject to there being no surprises in the final vote-counting (like some more boxes of Democrat votes turning up late for example). It looks like they have disabled Joe Biden AND disabled Donald Trump. Now I realise that that statement will go down badly with supporters of both, but that’s how I see the outcome. The American public, to my mind, have achieved the almost impossible, and they have done it using only the democratic process. They have protected their country from the damaging excesses of a green-obsessed (green-possessed) president for the next two years, and at the same time protected their country from a return to Trump chaos.

Incidentally, I was delighted when Donald Trump became president, as he was the only candidate back then who understood what America’s problems were. The tragedy was that his style did not work in the presidency. This time around, it is clear that some other senior Republicans do understand what America’s problems are, and will be able to fix them.

PS, all this is from ‘not an American’, and Americans are welcome to tell me that what I think is of zero interest to them. But please note that I do take an interest in what happens in America as do very many others around the world.

DeSantis in 2024! (and I’m not even prejudice in his favor with me being a 3rd generation Italian American)- it’s just that conservative Americans need to have younger people represent them- enough with the geezers. The Dems could benefit too with a younger generation. If both did this, it would better for all of us.

DeSantis is only 44. Just how young are you demanding?
And conservatives love DeSantis!

44 is fine- Kennedy was about that age- I’m 73 and I’m tired of seeing people even older than me in power- time for some young people

I wasn’t being sarcastic about DeSantis- I like the guy- though I’m an independent. I’d like to see 2 men or women in their 40s running for president.

Populism has always been a direct as well as an existential threat to the ruling and influential elite. If the Trump Presidency did anything. It made this a kitchen table truth.
The DNC/DCCC, the liberal media et al, and social media went into overdrive to outright destroy the Presidency and any chance of policy success of Donald Trump when and where ever they could. Since Trump came down the Trump Tower escalator the American liberal’s cry, “Trump is an illegitimate President” was repeated for four years. There is still some fanning of its residual ash today, more than two years later.
I don’t think we of the first world have seen such elitist intent to politically destroy an elected President outside of the third world. And, have the electorate fully aware of the intent and having that also become a kitchen table discussion. I believe these mid-term elections prove that the electorate more than ever want a return to DJT MAGA policy, and therefore I wouldn’t rule out Donald Trump if he makes his intentions for 2024 clearly to the American voting public.
I don’t think going forward that Trump’s main issue is the elitist left, rather the elitist right who now, post Trump, want to act like they did it all on their own or at least blame Trump for where they lost.
I can’t believe that an expanding never-Trump base among Republicans would be good for America. Not when the never-Trump poster boy is Adam Kinzinger. And for equality’s sake, the poster girl being Liz Cheney…

The Republicans did the same to Obama. Senator Mitchell said at the beginning of the Obama admin. that it was their job to make sure he accomplished nothing. Both sides suck, at times. Anyone who always worships one side and hates the other needs to grow up. There are times when each side does well and sometimes they’re aweful. That’s reality. Yin-yang.

[IF] Senator Mitchell made such a statement, he lied. It is not the job of the opposition Party to deny the Party in Office success. It’s to deny them their excesses.

Nice use of the false equivalency. There is no equal sign between Obama’s experience in Office to that of Trump’s.
First of all, Obama had his Party, the public, social media and the alphabet press/cable networks behind him.
Trump had enough of the public to win election. Republican Never-Trumpers ran to the Democrats and actively worked against the Republican Party interest. Social media was in full-blown anti-Trump meltdown. As for the press, Trump had perhaps the better part of FOXNews, but not all, and that is it.

The candidates supported by Donald Trump won overwhelmingly.

The races lost were those that did not involve Donald Trump.
Most of those races, especially key races, malfeasance cheating was rampant.

In several races, the mismanagement of the election was egregiously horrendous.

One evidence of this is that in many key races where the Republicans lost, the down ballot races were won overwhelmingly by Republicans.

Nor did it help that RINOs McCarthy and McConnell spent millions for smears and ads against Republican candidates.

If you take a look at most Republican candidates, they are young, much younger than fifty. Quite a few of them, 174, won their races with only 9 losing.

You call Donald Trump’s Administration chaotic, without mentioning the hatred and antipathy held for President Trump by democrats and RINOs.

In spite of the headwinds, President Trump accomplished more than any American President of my life, since the 1950s.
What’s more, what candidate Trump promised President Trump accomplished or accomplished a substantial portion.

Unfortunately, the political map always looks like that. It is the union block voting in large urban centers and urban states that keeps the bad public policy in play and by extension abundant Party favors for these dangerous and declining cities. The extra $1.5 trillion in un-needed Biden stimulus was for the bailout of these dysfunctional political units, not legitimate concern for economic recovery or remaining pandemic response. Just do your part buying U.S. debt and ignore the financial warning signs. We’ll be sure and let you know when it’s a crisis shortly after it’s too late to do anything about it. Until then, it’s all about climate crisis and the next tax package to pay for the Party list of needs. Good day.

Do the oceans get a rebuttal? I guess it depends on their Party loyalty and adherence to the debate-has-ended theme.

Also, the global temperature anomaly looks a lot like the North Atlantic SST pattern, suggesting that only the long temperature cycles in ocean basins make a difference in otherwise steady-state (short term) adjustments in the Pacific.

Agreed!
What’s more is that most MSM and activist pundits conflate SST with ocean temperatures at depth. When they use SST, they never bother to explain that SST represents a very shallow depth at the surface. Intimating SST represent all ocean water.

Two choices-
1- He’s the usual mumbling bumbling fool that everyone knows and cringes over.
2- He’s dosed up to gills on whatever it is they use on him and he promises any and everything that he doesn’t have and can’t give.
It’s sad to see a dementia sufferer abused in this way.
50 years in politics and nothing good to show for it.

Found this on China’s power problems: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBp_NgrrtPM

What I found interesting is the failure to mention nuclear. My last job before retiring was at a nuke plant in China.

Coal bad, nuclear bad, renewable that does work very good!

Like the other world dignitaries giving speeches at these climate conferences, Biden’s just telling the attendees what they want to hear. This is standard procedure, but I’d bet at the next COP we’ll hear the same complaints: temperatures and emissions are continuing to rise, we’re burning too much fossil fuels, and naturally civilization is doomed by 2030, 2050, etc. Oh yes, while they’re fretting over the situation, send more money to the countries supposedly affected by climate change because how are their corrupt and inefficient governments and leaders going to continue lining their pockets?
