Climate Crisis (scam) Demands Diverse Leadership Or Something

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This reminds of that that old joke from the Blues Brothers

Except here we have alarmists and cultists

Climate crisis demands diverse leadership

With California Sen. Kamala Harris as the Democratic pick for vice president, and Rep. Ilhan Omar winning her Minnesota primary on Tuesday, there is new reason to be optimistic about transformative national action on climate and energy. These pioneering women will work to shift priorities to ensure climate and energy policy is fair, just and inclusive.

Today, it is anything but.

Low-income communities and people of color suffer the most from our current fossil fueled energy system and from the climate disruptions that this system has caused. The fossil fuel industry, mostly led by white men, generates huge profits while strategically dismissing and denying the dangers.

Black Americans are more likely to live in the shadow of oil refineries and coal-fired power plants, and to get sick and die from breathing polluted air. Lacking parks and green space, many low-income neighborhoods bake during heat waves, the deadliest impact of climate change.

I’ll mention yet again that this mostly occurs in Democratic Party run areas, where they like to keep blacks on the Modern Plantation via their Modern Jim Crow policies

For too long, concerns of vulnerable communities have gone unheard in the halls of power. Without diverse leadership, the United States has invested in sustaining corporate profits and supporting the powerful fossil fuel industry rather than prioritizing the basic needs of people and communities.

Can someone point out what either Kamala or Ilhan has actually done for black people? How they have made their lives better? Think things will get better for low income (and no income) blacks when the cost of living skyrockets from climate cult policies?

Even well-meaning renewable energy incentives have disproportionately benefited white, well-off communities — and further exacerbated racial and economic disparities. This lack of representation has led to inadequate policies that widen inequities instead of leverage opportunities for job creation and advancing social justice.

Huh, so the Cult of Climastrology is pretty much racist?

With more diverse leadership, there is hope for innovative climate and energy policy that places social, economic and racial justice at its core. When women and people of color show up in leadership spaces where they have historically been excluded, their lived experiences provide powerfully different perspectives on social justice.

I’m starting to get the idea that this has nothing to do with science nor the climate.

Those perspectives are shaping a new policy agenda. Both Omar and Harris have been avid supporters of the Green New Deal, and both have resisted the influence of the oil and gas industry.

This would be the same GND that AOC refuses to demand a vote on, and the Democratic Party run House refuses to vote on. Since they won’t doesn’t that mean they’re racists? That’s how this works, right?
