I'm watching Glenn Beck right now. And he is saying that Biden will declare a 'National Emergency' using climate change as the reason. Don't believe it? It's already happening in Australia...

Australian cities are declaring a 'climate emergency', but does that actually mean anything?


Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore has declared a "climate emergency" on behalf of the Sydney local government.

This makes Sydney the 26th Australian local government to do so, after the UK became the first country to declare a climate emergency in early May, following weeks of climate-change street protests.

Ireland, France, and Canada have now added their signatures to the cause, and nearly half of New Zealand's local governments have also joined more than 600 local, state and federal governments worldwide.

So does the declaration of a climate emergency actually carry any weight? Is it hollow symbolism? Or is it something else?

Although the language may sound similar, a 'state of emergency' and a 'climate emergency' don't mean the same thing, according to legal expert Michael Eburn of the Australian National University.

Declaring a state of emergency in Victoria, for example, gives the government powers such as the ability to commandeer private property or suspend the operation of legislation, if it is getting in the way of an emergency response.

"The point of a 'state of emergency' or a 'state of disaster', depending on what it's called in the state you're in, is really about responding to rapid-onset disasters — bushfire or flood," Dr Eburn said.

"There are thresholds that have to be met before you get into those disasters [and] those disaster declarations come from state government.

"Interestingly, there's no legislative power to declare an emergency at a Federal level."
While it could be argued that the threat of climate change is imminent, and an actual state of emergency is warranted, that hasn't been done in the case of these climate-emergency declarations.

"Unless there's actually a written declaration that refers to an Act, and I haven't seen one, then that's all it is — symbolism," Dr Eburn said.

"Maybe they're [making] a statement so that one jurisdiction can say to the Commonwealth 'look, this really is important'.

"That might be used to bring more pressure to bear, but as far as I can tell, [it doesn't] have any legal meaning at all."

Canada is a case in point.

On June 18, Canada became the second country to make the declaration.

The following day, the same Canadian government approved the massive expansion of an oil pipeline that will be capable of moving up to 600,000 barrels of oil every day out of Alberta to port in British Columbia.

This is not what we might expect from a country that has just declared an emergency largely caused by fossil fuels.

So if the declaration is essentially symbolic, why have grassroots action groups like Extinction Rebellion, as well as bigger players like Greenpeace, and others thrown their support behind the cause?

Emergency declaration just the first step​

While governments may feel the declaration is open to interpretation, in the eyes of the groups campaigning this is just the first of many steps.

Adam Hastie from the New South Wales branch of Extinction Rebellion, which pushed hard for the City of Sydney declaration, said he was under no illusions about the power of the local government's gesture.

"This is stage one, this is 'tell the truth', and hopefully we can get through the [next] two [demands] as quickly as possible," he said.

Extinction Rebellion has issued three demands globally.

The first, which it says the climate emergency declaration falls under, is that governments and media need to acknowledge the scale of the climate crisis.

"Number two is 'act now'. So [governments] have to implement policy that represents the science on the issue," Mr Hastie said.

"And it has to be policy that moves to net-zero emissions before 2030 at the latest."

Its final demand is that governments establish local citizens' assemblies to enact the policies needed to achieve net-zero emissions.


"We don't believe that governments will be able to do it and we don't believe they can represent people adequately in their own communities," he said.
Similarly, Greenpeace claims that while the declaration itself is only symbolic, it is a step in the right direction toward strong climate action.

"Greenpeace welcomes the leadership shown by local governments for calling the climate emergency for what it is," a spokesperson said.

"When governments at any level declare a climate emergency and match that declaration with clear and tangible outcomes of emergency action ... it becomes both symbolic and a powerful agent for change."

Like Extinction Rebellion, Greenpeace is calling for the declaration to be followed by concrete action, including the phasing out of fossil fuels by 2025.

Cr Moore told the ABC that Sydney was on track to achieve 70 per cent emissions reduction by 2024, and had the goal of reaching zero emissions by 2050.

"Seventy per cent of global emissions are generated by cities, so the actions of city governments are critical," she said.

"However, it is clear that the current Federal Government's policies are simply not working, as Australia's greenhouse gas emissions have increased for four consecutive years."

Although Sydney's targets are more ambitious than those of most Australian governments, Mr Hastie said anything less than net-zero by 2030 wasn't enough.

Activists not likely to settle for hollow gestures​


It's possible the climate emergency movement may lead to something more.

It has the potential to snowball, and governments refusing to make the declarations may be left looking weak on climate action.

The declarations could conceivably be converted to legally binding commitments with real consequences.

On the other hand, they may remain purely symbolic.

As Canada's actions demonstrate, not all governments feel bound by these declarations to immediately back away from fossil fuels.

Although it is easy to dismiss the declarations as political posturing, it would also be wrong to dismiss the movements behind them so easily.

Net-zero greenhouse-gas emissions by 2030 may sound like a radical target, but the IPCC forecasts that net-zero by 2050 will still lead to 1.5 C warming above pre-industrial levels.

At this threshold, there is predicted to be significant species loss, sea-level rise and displacement of peoples.

Movements like Extinction Rebellion and youth climate action networks inspired by Swedish teen-activist Greta Thunberg, represent a significant groundswell of people saying they're not willing to accept the status quo.

Many of them will inherit the consequences of what governments do today. As the predicted impacts of climate change ramp up, it's likely their voices will grow louder.

Beck is saying the government will require a 'digital angel' to participate in any economic endeavors - aka being able to either buy or sell anything

can we all say 'mark of the beast'

and the government WILL confiscate everything you own, you know, like all of your firearms

they will tell everyone it's just for your protection

look up green bonds. hundreds of billions (the bankers) have put humanity into debt under the guise of globalist warming

and the total is growing rapidly

(they) give countries money to do globalist warming crap -- then force the citizens to pay the principal/interest. if/when they default (the banker) takes over their economy and their governments

it's a lot like the imf loans

Since the Federal Reserve has failed at inflation, maybe they can succeed with "Global Warming"

Federal Reserve Board issues statement in support of the Glasgow Declaration by the Network of Central Banks and Supervisors for Greening the Financial System (NGFS)​

For release at 8:30 a.m. EDT

The Federal Reserve Board on Wednesday issued the following statement in support of the Glasgow Declaration by the Network of Central Banks and Supervisors for Greening the Financial System (NGFS):

Climate change poses significant challenges for the global economy and financial system, with implications for the structure of economic activity, the safety and soundness of financial institutions and the stability of the financial sector more broadly. A sustained global response by national authorities, the international community, and the private sector can address the financial and economic implications of climate change.

The efforts highlighted by COP26 are an important part of that global response. The Federal Reserve supports the efforts of the NGFS to identify key issues and potential solutions for the climate-related challenges most relevant to central banks and supervisory authorities.

While the primary responsibility for addressing climate change itself rests with elected officials, the Federal Reserve is committed to working within our existing mandates and authorities to address the implications of climate change, particularly the regulation and supervision of financial institutions and the stability of the broader financial system. A critical part of the NGFS work program has been to develop a range of potential solutions that each member can consider adopting relative to their particular mandates, scope of responsibilities, and financial market structure. This approach has served the NGFS well, and we look forward to supporting the NGFS work program in the future.

The Federal Reserve will address climate-related risks in an analytically rigorous, transparent, and collaborative way through our domestic work with other federal agencies including the Financial Stability Oversight Council; our international engagement through the Financial Stability Board, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, and the NGFS; and through our broad and transparent engagement with the private sector.
The Federal Reserve is committed to understanding and addressing all factors that could impact our ability to meet our responsibilities, including those related to climate change. We appreciate the magnitude of the challenges ahead of us, and the Federal Reserve is committed to do our part.

The wealthy did NOT get there by being ethical !!! :Grrr:
Simply look at all the deaths associated with fuel economy devices from the 1950's to the1980's. Can you say "Standard Oil" (Rockefeller's) ?
AKA Chevron
In the 2020 Forbes Global 2000, Chevron was ranked as the 61st-largest public company in the world.:finger:
I grew up in local trucking & the truckers did not like Chevron, good, bad or different, Union 76 was their choice.
