Joe Biden named Maggie Thomas as Domestic Climate Policy Chief and Cecilia Martinez as Senior Director of Environmental Justice, these two individuals have both cited racial inequality as a reason for Climate Change. This comparison has been the talking point of activists for several years and is considered to be a part of the intersectional politics the left has taken up in recent years. More on these appointments form Washington Free Beacon:
“Unless intentionally interrupted, systemic racism will continue to be a major obstacle to creating a healthy planet,” Martinez said in a 2019 press release touting her “Equitable & Just” climate platform. “The only path forward is to design national climate policies that are centered on justice.”
For Thomas and Martinez, such policies require “massive” government spending and the “realignment of public dollars at all levels.” Thomas’s climate plan demands “trillions” in public investment—not only to “crack down” on oil production and shift away from the nation’s “fossil fuel economy” but also to fund welfare programs, including rent and utility relief. Martinez’s platform calls for much of the same, including increased government investment into “affordable and quality housing.”
Progressives’ most ambitious climate goals are likely to face congressional opposition from centrist Democrats. Sen. Joe Manchin (D., W. Va.) recently told the Washington Examiner that he would oppose a federal mandate to make utilities carbon-free within 15 years. But Biden could use executive action to implement some of his team’s far-left climate-policy priorities. Thomas’s climate plan, for example, calls on the president-elect to issue an executive order “on day 1” establishing a “government-wide environmental justice initiative” tasked with centering “federal environmental policy around equity, justice, and inclusion.”
Climate Change is a big priority for the left and the incoming Biden administration, while anything major is likely to fail in Congress getting policy like this through is still possible through executive action.
Why not. I go out in the sun and my skin changes, I get tan. In the winter I loose that tan. It must be climate change. So I guess my race changes as the season changes. Also in the summer I see the snakes out and winter don’t see them. See the bears in summer and disappear in winter. Look at all the changes that happen because of climate. Even in the summer we have a garden and in the winter it is gone. In a matter of rage my face turns red and then the Indian comes out of me. Isn’t it great what nature brings forth.
One needs to search “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Global Warming>” Also, another report that spells out about India & China, whose people end up in worse poverty, due to the regulations & restrictions by the Climate Change Chicken Little’s
This is the lefts marketing plan to undermine our economy & put them in control. Stop being submissive people & succumbing to what is a form of Obedience Training.
Wear a mask, wear a double mask, don’t sing, don’t eat meat (that is what Kamala wants). Keep the schools locked down. People have got to stop drinking the Kool-Aid
It really is amusing, now racism effects climate change really very scientific. Democrats can’t blame it on Trump so this is the next best thing.
Kiss my grits!
Systemic racism and man made climate change are both as phony as the newly elected(?) dopey Joe. He has already demonstrated the continued hypocrisy of the democrat, ‘do as I demand and not what I do’ part of the dimbo playbook.
When the Republicans in Congress had the chance to really do something for this nation they simply ‘sat on their butts’ and apparently waited for the ‘next person’ to take action. Apparently they really are a lazy group. Now, We the People, are being verbally assaulted for wanting a moral society. ( I do realize that some are being physically assaulted.) Lord help us!
There is definitely a climate change. The democrooks are going to destroy America. Hundreds of thousands of people losing jobs because the idiot in charge shut down the pipeline, tens of thousands of migrants flooding our southern border, because he invited them to come for the FREEBIES that American workers are paying for, those that are still employed that is, putting us a half a trillion dollars more in debt by buying a place in a group (Paris accord) who do nothing but spend our money on parties and are not held to the same rules they place on us! There’s more, but I’m getting frustrated, so I’ll stop there!! The climate in America is definitely changing , attitude wise !!
When all else fails, just say racism or it’s George Bushes fault. Obama is the biggest scum of the earth. He started all this crap and racism was all he could use cause he wasn’t smart enough to be President. He was just an actor and a traitor. He was a sharp speaker until hi teleprompter went down. Then he turned would turn into jive turkey George Jefferson. Climate change is a hoax just like Obama and crooked Joe. That’s why Joe is filling his cabinet with women and minorities.
So according to the Biden Socialist Regime the reason the glaciers are melting is because White People Hate Black People. Following this logic, if Black in turn will Hate White People then the glaciers will refreeze. Now what will happen if Hispanic People Hate Black People? What about if Oriental People Hate both White and Brown People? It is no wonder the whole world is in such a mess, if we would just learn to love each other then maybe, just maybe the Dodo will return.
It is no wonder that the mascot for the Democratic/Leftists/Liberal/Socialist Party is a Jack Ass. Give em hell grandpa Joe.
Climate has change since there have been climates and there is little humans can do the keep them from changing. However, the present climate change and/or global warming is nothing but a racket. It is a cash grab. It is just saying that we need to take money from the rich to fix the problem, but who will really end up with the funds. Those are spouting the lies about climate change.
It’s all about racism. Everything is about racism. Traffic signals changing from red to green is about racism. Preferring vanilla to chocolate is about racism. Whales beaching themselves is about racism. The cost of a loaf of bread is about racism. RACISM, RACISM, RACISM….HAHAHAHA HEEHEEHEE…ITS ALL RACISM I TELL YA!
If climate change effects the whole planet,,,,,,who is responsible for this “systemic racism” in AFRICAN NATIONS, HAITI,,,,others? Why would America’s “climate” be the only effect on “systemic racism”!!! SICK USELESS WASTE OF TIME, MONEY AND RESOURCES ON RACISM AND WHITE SUPREMACY! IDIOTS HAVE NOTHING BETTER OR GOOD TO THINK ABOUT AND DO! Could these idiots argue that climate change affected the Holocaust, Bosnia all related genocides also?
Executive orders including climate change are subject to court challenges and in mayorities of case they loose.Those morons does not know what the real world is all about. The only thing that they know is to B.S. ignorant and stupid people like them.
Yeah, racism is to blame. Who elected this idiot?
