This is according to Greg Reese of InfoWars, who warned about the possibility during an episode of his segment, "Reese Report."
Reese claimed that, before people are forced to stay in their homes, the government will likely adopt a variety of measures to make venturing out a burden. This includes the possibility of instituting a carbon tax, which would make using a vehicle that runs on fossil fuels much more expensive.

The government might even try to force people back into lockdown using the World Health Organization, which is about to be given international authority over pandemic response. Reese explained that this means it will no longer just give governments toothless recommendations on how to deal with disease outbreaks. If the proposal is passed, it could have full executive authority to do what it wants under the guise of pandemic control.
"They know that we will ignore their destruction of America so long as they feed us distractions to ruminate over on social media, just as they are doing now," warned Reese. "They want to make you stay inside your home and die quietly, peacefully, where no one notices."
"Many of you may doubt that they will get away with any of this, but our actions say differently," he continued. "Our actions suggest that they can do it again."
Reese concluded by warning that so long as the government provides the people with legal outlets from which they can vent their frustrations, such as social media platforms, the government will be able to lock people down in their homes with ease.
Of all the possible excuses Reese mentioned the government may use, one of the likeliest is the climate crisis.
The signs that the government might use a so-called climate emergency to institute a climate lockdown were already present as early as 2020.
"The noxious idea is that we are at – yet another – tipping point, and that unless government radically seizes centralized control of the economy, it will be shutdown time," wrote Wesley J. Smith for the National Review back in September 2020, explaining the potential rationale for a climate lockdown.
Under such a climate lockdown, the government would grant itself the ability to limit – or outright ban – the use of private vehicles and the consumption of red meat, seeing these as the biggest culprits of harmful emissions.
In Feb. 2022, Kristin Tate, writing for The Hill, noted that calls for extreme government measures to be enacted in the name of saving the environment "are already in the parlance of influential organizations and figures."
"In November 2020, the Red Cross proclaimed that climate change is a bigger threat than COVID and should be confronted with 'the same urgency,'" wrote Tate. "Bill Gates recently demanded dramatic measures to prevent climate change, claiming it will be worse than the pandemic. Despite millions of people having died from COVID, former governor of the Bank of England Mark Carney last year predicted that climate deaths will dwarf those of the pandemic."
More recently, on April 26, the International Energy Agency called for the governments of the world to mandate lockdowns and to temporarily ban the use of private cars in cities to reduce oil consumption so that they could meet their climate goals.
"Political leaders have learned that fear prompts the public to accept dramatic curtailing of freedoms for vague promises of safety – they must realize the incredible power at their fingertips," wrote Tate. "COVID gave the government mouse a cookie, and power-hungry officials and bureaucrats can utilize the precedents of the past two years to institute a much longer, more comprehensive lockdown."
