CALGARY, Canada — The “Green New Deal” proposed by congressional Democrats is a “recipe for mass suicide” and the “most ridiculous scenario I ever heard,” Greenpeace Co-Founder Patrick Moore warned in an exclusive interview with The New American. In fact, Dr. Moore warned that if the “completely preposterous” prescriptions in the scheme were actually implemented, Americans could be forced to turn to cannibalism to avoid starvation — and they still would not survive. Other experts such as Craig Rucker, the executive director of the environmental group Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), also sounded the alarm about the “green” proposal in Congress, comparing it to Soviet five-year plans and calling it a “prescription for disaster.”
VIDEO - CALGARY, Canada--Free markets, private property, and the prosperity they produce are not just good for people, but they protect the environment as well, explained Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) Executive Director Craig Rucker. In an interview with The New American, Rucker pointed out that the countries with the cleanest environments are also the most economically free nations. "What's good for people is good for nature," he said, calling for pro-growth policies that benefit people rather than government-enforced scarcity. "It's like the old Chinese proverb: When there is food on the table, there are many problems; when there is no food on the table, there is one problem. Societies that do not take care of their people don't have the resources to take care of the planet. So it's no surprise that countries like the United States, like much of Europe, Australia, Japan--those that have the resources are the environmental leaders, and they are the ones attacked by the greens!" By contrast, societies with overbearing or even socialist governments such as the former Soviet Union have "abysmal" environmental records. He also drew a distinction between the "conservation" ethic, in which man is included in how to protect the planet, and the "preservation" ethic and the "Deep Green ecology" that views man as a "virus on the planet" that needs to be removed.

Moore, who left Greenpeace for reasons he outlines in the interview, says millions of Americans would die if the policies outlined in the Green New Deal were implemented.
The polar vortex that is now sweeping across the Midwest is, according to some climatologist, evidence of global warming. The same phenomenon used to be evidence of a different type of climate change — a coming ice age.
The end to emissions testing sounds especially odd in Washington, where last year environmental lobbyists attempted to place the United States’ first ever carbon tax on fossil fuel emissions.
Governor Brown thinks we must treat the "enemy" on the climate change debate as we did Nazi Germany, and "newsman" Chuck Todd believes no other views should even be heard.
Isn't climate change supposed to lead to more violent and more frequent storms? Tornadoes, it seems, are refusing to follow that narrative.
VIDEO - In this interview with The New American from the UN COP24 "climate" summit in Poland, California Senator Bob Wieckowski argued that America would follow the lead of his state's "global warming" policies. Wieckowski, who represents the district where Tesla is based, wants more tax money to subsidize unreliable, unproductive interests. He touted the alleged "blue wave" and blasted the "noise" made by Trump. One of only two American elected officials at the UN confab in Poland, the senator acknowledged there would be economic pain. But humanity only has 12 years to save the planet from alleged man-made warming, he argued, saying CO2 would cause "extreme weather to become even more extreme." He also falsely claimed CO2, the gas of life, is "pollution." But there are a "zillion" businesses trying to "make money" in the "climate arena," he said.
Georgetown, Texas, has been called a “city of the future” because of its commitment to 100-percent renewable energy. But if that's the case, then future cities can look forward to unfulfilled promises and more public debt.
KATOWICE, Poland — As the most important United Nations “global warming” summit since the 2015 confab in Paris kicked off in Katowice, Poland, last week, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres declared that so-called “climate action” offers a “compelling path to transform our world.” Even your “mind” must be transformed, he said. Many other proud socialists, communists, and globalists have also called for using the man-made global-warming hypothesis to transform the world. And they are not kidding.
