The American Conservative’s Shaun Rieley joins Senior Editor Christopher Bedford and Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky. The three discuss how the Glasgow Climate Conference revealed a transformation that’s taken place in our society through the last two years of tyrannical COVID-19 lockdowns and mandates.  Technocrats have figured out that they transform “emergency” COVID powers into permanent emergency powers over climate change.
