Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has joined the growing chorus of Democrats, globalists, and climate-change hysterics who are urging new president Joe Biden to declare a “climate emergency,” based on the assertion that man’s activities and use of fossil fuels is leading to runaway global warming. Schumer made the remarks in an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Tuesday.
“It might be a good idea for President Biden to call a climate emergency,” Schumer said. “He can do many, many things under the emergency powers of the president … that he could do without legislation.”
As many conservatives and constitutionalists feared at the time, Democrats such as Schumer are using President Trump’s declaration of an emergency on the southern border as cover for this broad usurpation of power.
In fact, Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), a conservative when convenient, was eerily prophetic in 2019 when he said, “If today, the national emergency is border security … tomorrow the national emergency might be climate change.”
