The idea of forcing people into their homes and not letting them leave for almost any reason stems from the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, said Owen Shroyer of InfoWars.
"That's to set the precedent that if there's a dangerous virus, that you shut down society," he said. "Once that precedent is accepted, then they're going to decide that you, the human, are the virus, so that then you'll accept the lockdowns because of the human virus causing man-made climate change." (Related: The government will declare a climate crisis to put people back into lockdown.)
This is happening in the Australian province of South Australia, which had just elected a left-leaning government under the Australian Labor Party. Immediately following the election, newly elected Premier Peter Malinauskas declared a climate emergency.
"Declaring an emergency is what tyrants do when they wish to shut down debate, silence their opponents and ram through legislation that would otherwise be difficult to pass," wrote journalist Lincoln Brown for the Spectator Australia. "South Australia's opposition leader, David Speirs, dismissed Labor's motion as mere virtue-signaling, but, while it is certainly virtue-signaling, it is more concerning than that."
Brown warned that the climate emergency is just the start. It will be followed by climate lockdowns, carbon footprint tracking and restrictions on personal fuel use and meat consumption.
"[They] might sound like conspiracy theories now, but the stage is being set for them to appear in the near future," said Brown. "As historian Dr. Stephen Chavura noted in response to Labor's motion, 'Emergency is the language that you use when democracy is no longer for you.'"
Multiple international organizations have also been pushing for climate lockdowns recently, motivated no doubt by the success of COVID-19 lockdowns all over the world. This includes the United Nations Environment Program, which has called for climate lockdowns to cut carbon emissions by 7.6 percent every year for the next decade.
But a group of Canadian scientists known as the Friends of Science Society recently came out in opposition to climate lockdowns. The group noted that even if climate change is real, lockdowns would do nothing to stop it and will only destroy people's lives.
"The fact is the drop in emissions during COVID lockdowns is not enough to significantly affect the increase of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere," read an open letter written by the Friends of Science addressed to the Bank of Canada. "One must compare the change of emissions to the annual change of CO2 concentrations, not to the cumulative CO2."
"Furthermore, carbon dioxide has never been empirically shown to be the main driver of climate change," the letter further stated. "There has been no global change in extreme weather events, including floods, droughts, storms or hurricanes."
