We Can Totally Build An Equitable ‘Climate Change’ Society After The Statues Come Down Or Something

It’s all so simple!

Dawone Robinson column: After the statues come down, let’s build a more equitable society

The fall of the Confederate statues reminds us that no nation forever can be shackled to symbols that defy its values, subvert its purpose, and cause its people anguish and pain.

Removing these statues, though, also creates an opportunity, and focuses us on what we must do to build a just and equitable society.

Part of the answer must be to confront the ways systemic racism has put Black people on the front lines of environmental hazard and harm far too often, and for far too long.

Few things more directly impact the quality of our lives and health. Drinking safe water, breathing clean air and eating healthy food are basic human rights. And part of the promise of an equitable society is that each of us has the opportunity to live in a comfortable and affordable home near good schools, workplaces and centers of commerce. (snip)

When factories and toxic waste sites disproportionately are located where Black people live; when Black people drink water contaminated by concentrated animal feeding operations; and when Black people breathe fumes from nearby incinerators, that is environmental racism. Putting an end to it is part of our larger charge to ensure justice for all.

The strange thing is how it is Democrats who are keeping black people in these conditions, yet black people keep voting overwhelmingly for the people who keep them in poor conditions

Second, we need to center justice in our fight against the central environmental challenge of our time: climate change. Black people, other people of color and low-income communities are bearing a disproportionate share of the costs and risks of rising seas, withering heat, raging storms and floods, and other consequences of climate change. We need help now to prepare our communities for more change to come.

Sure, why not ask your Democratic Party pals? I’m sure they’d be happy to patronize black people while continuing to enforce their modern version of Jim Crow. And it’s cute how Dawone is using the Cult of Climastrology to hijack BLM

We need to expand, for example, access to healthy, sustainable food for Black people, too many of whom live in urban food deserts where it’s easier to buy packaged snack foods than fresh produce.

So, band together and purchase supermarkets for those areas. I’m sure you won’t mind all the losses, from those from using EBT to theft to BLM “protesters” breaking in and trashing the places, right? If you rely on the Government, you get Government conditions. And then they own you. And passing ‘climate change’ legislation is just going to make the poor poorer.

And thank your Democratic Party pals for putting blacks in this situation.

Surprise: LA Councillor Who Voted To Defund Police Sure Likes Calling Them On Protesters

Of course, Mike Bonin is Blaming the police for the responses to his home

REVEALED: LA councilor who voted to slash police funds has ‘called cops to his home EIGHT TIMES’ since April asking for protection from protesters

A councilor for Los Angeles who voted to slash $150 million from the annual budget of the LAPD has called the police to his house eight times since April, it has been claimed.

Mike Bonin, 53, was among 11 councilors who agreed in June to reduce the annual budget, in the wake of calls to defund police forces across the country following the May 25 death of George Floyd.

On Friday night Bonin was accused of having called the cops to his LA home eight times since April, including requesting protection from protesters.

Bonin whined back at Melugin

Bonin, however, denied that he had made the calls, and said they were generated by the police themselves.

‘I have NEVER asked LAPD for patrols at my house,’ he tweeted in response to Melugin, and described the Fox reporter’s tweet as ‘false’.

‘When protests occurred at the homes of other elected officials and LAPD offered to send patrols to my home as a precaution, I specifically asked for no patrols at my home.

‘Seven of the eight calls you cite were apparently generated by LAPD themselves, sending patrols without my request and often without my knowledge.

He whined that this was being done to damage his reputation

‘This is a cute tactic to try to silence or intimidate a public official who is standing up to the police union,’ he said. ‘It ain’t working.’

Uh huh

Melugin then hit back, tweeting what he said was a text message from a LAPD source denying that the calls to Bonin’s home were generated by the police, without his knowledge.

‘This was definitely a call for service by Bonin or a member of his staff,’ the text read.

‘The call would have been placed by the resident or someone reporting something happening at that address.’

The LAPD should put him on a “no response” list.

Climate Change (scam) To Make Your Commute Worse Or Something

Dragging out the crystal balls on this one

Why climate change is about to make your bad commute worse

Something remarkable happened on American roadways during the early days of the coronavirus pandemic: In even the most congested cities, traffic started moving again. With Americans staying home, cars suddenly rolled over highways like water through a freshly unclogged pipe. By mid-April, traffic had fallen to just 52 percent of pre-pandemic levels, according to traffic research firm INRIX.

But the reprieve was short-lived. As states and cities reopened their economies, drivers restarted their vehicles. By late June, INRIX reported, travel nationwide had already reached pre-pandemic levels, and in many states traffic was actually exceeding those levels.

Most motorists are familiar with many of the reasons for bad traffic: more cars on the road, unskilled drivers, construction, inadequate mass transit, crashes. Increasingly, however, there’s at least one more culprit to consider: climate change.

“America’s transportation system is not set up to recover and regain functionality after a major disruption or disasters,” said Paula Pagniez, director of the Climate and Resilience Hub at global risk management firm Willis Towers Watson. “Both chronic and acute changes in weather impact America’s roads, bridges, tunnels and transit.”

Got that? You ate a cheeseburger and took a fossil fueled trip, so, that’s going to cause more Bad Weather which harm the roads.

In fact, weather already causes approximately 15 percent of congestion, according to the Federal Highway Administration. And with climate change escalating — scientists expect extreme weather events such as heat waves, snow storms, hurricanes and floods to increase in both frequency and intensity — gridlock will only grow. That is, unless governments change the way they plan, design and manage climate-sensitive infrastructure.

Did they just say that greenhouse gases are going to cause more extreme snow storms? Yes, this is a cult

The problem is, thanks to climate change, past is no longer prologue. “We’re not going to shut off CO2 emissions overnight, so the climate is going to continue changing. The question is, by how much and in which direction?” Chester said.

“Let’s say you design a road in Chicago for the hottest week on record, which might be 105 degrees. Well, the hottest week going forward might be 108 degrees, or it could be 120 degrees,” he said.

See, it’s all about prognostication. And freakouts. All over a minor 1.5F increase over 170 years. And guess who gets to pay for someone else’s cultish beliefs.

BLM Riots, Loots In Chicago After Police Shoot Criminal Who Shot At Them

Just like every weekend, Chicago was a hotbed of violence. 37 shot, 3 killed. The vast majority, if not all, were black. There haven’t been any riots of blacks shooting blacks. Yet

Chicago rocked by widespread looting caught on video after police-involved shooting

Widespread looting and police clashes in downtown Chicago were caught on video early Monday, in response to a police-involved shooting Sunday that wounded a suspect in his late teens or early 20s.

Fox 32 Chicago reported that the shooting occurred Sunday afternoon in the city’s Englewood neighborhood. A crowd emerged that faced off against the police and eventually began hauling things at the officers. Police told the Chicago Tribune that someone spread the unfounded rumor that it was a child who was hit.

A police officer told the station that an officer sustained a shoulder injury in the confrontation and one of the police cars had its windows broken. The tension carried on into the night.

Police initially responded to a report of a man with a gun and chased the suspect. Police said the suspect turned and fired at the pursuing officers who returned fire. The suspect’s condition was unknown. The Chicago Tribune reported that a weapon was found at the scene.

The police were responding to a call that the suspect had a firearm, which, of course, the man’s brother says is totally false, because his brother is an angel, despite having been charged with domestic battery (charges dropped) and currently under investigation for reckless conduct and child endangerment. Anyhow, what happened?

The situation seemed to continue to intensify and reportedly led to widespread riots across the city, including the Magnificent Mile.

Andy Ngo, the conservative journalist, took to Twitter to say “BLM-inspired rioting and looting is happening in Chicago tonight.” He wrote that police “look completely overwhelmed.”

Ryan Baker, an anchor for CBS Chicago, also tweeted, “Absolute chaos in downtown Chicago with more overnight looting and vandalism in the Loop. Appears to be coordinated effort with minimal police presence.”

Social media users posted videos of hundreds of people looting a Nordstrom, Walgreens, Macy’s, Coach, Gucci and Louis Vuitton. The Chicago Police Department did not immediately respond to an email from Fox News.

It’s amazing how few media outlets have stories on this. CNN has nothing, but, they do note Chicago’s mayor putting up fencing because people were at the beach. CBS News calls it “unrest“. I’m sure the NY Times considers it local news, but they do cover the Sturgis biker rally. Nor anything from the Washington Post, but, they do talk about parties in Saint-Tropez.

What does this have to do with BLM?

Say, What Are Young Climate Cultists Doing Instead Of Protests?

Remember, this is all about Science!

COVID-19 canceled mass protests. Here’s what youth climate activists are doing instead.

For young climate activists in the United States, staying home because of the pandemic does not mean staying silent, with plans gathering pace across the country to make their voices heard in November’s elections.

It has been nearly a year since an estimated 6 million people across the world joined the youth-led global climate strikes on September 20.

In the United States, students from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C., skipped school to voice their frustration over the slow response to the climate crisis by elected leaders, and Greta Thunberg told a cheering crowd in New York City “this is only the beginning.”

But in the 10 months since the historic protests, the COVID-19 pandemic has ravaged the United States, making meeting and organizing in person hazardous. Climate strikes, including a major three-day mass protest that was planned for Earth Day 2020 in April, have been canceled.

Hey, don’t they know that protests for Modern Socialist causes are allowed?

But networks of youth climate activists have been regrouping, with a new focus on election campaigning with phone banks, social media, and friend-to-friend organizing, according to interviews with organizers.

The stakes could not be higher for young people, according to 23-year-old Aracely Jimenez-Hudis, the deputy communications director of the Sunrise Movement, a leading youth advocacy group on the climate.

“We are a generation that was really born into crises,” said Jimenez-Hudis. “We don’t have some golden age that we can look back on and feel that there is any kind of resonance with a call to normalcy because our normal has always been endless wars, has always been police brutality.”

See? Science. Because no one else has been born into crisis. There were no wars before these youths were born, you know.

The group has more recently been pushing Democratic leaders to embrace the Green New Deal, a bold carbon-neutral plan for the economy championed by progressive Democrats including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Backing the policy was initially seen as too radical by many Democrats, but it has now been embraced more widely by members of the party. Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, recently unveiled a climate and jobs plan that mirrors some of the aggressiveness of the Green New Deal, though some activists believe he is not tough enough on fossil fuel industries.

We should give them what they want, but, just for themselves. Make them live the lives that they demand, that the GND and other climate cult policy requires. See how they like it.

Aligning racial justice and climate fights

Why does this seem to be all about politics?

“We want climate change to be a top priority on people’s minds when they’re going to the polls in November because of the way it will impact people of color and people living in those cities,” said Zanagee Artis, the 20-year-old co-founder and deputy director of digital advocacy for Zero Hour.

Of course, poll after poll show that people might care in theory, but, not in practice. No one is willing to give up their own money or modern lives, nor give up freedom, liberty, and choice. That’s always for Someone Else.

Duke Researches Test Different Masks To See Which Are Best, Worst

One has to wonder, what with all the tyrants in governor’s office, such as Gretchen Whitmer, if this will result in them mandating what masks are acceptable and which aren’t

Duke researchers put masks, face coverings to the test

How can consumers know how much protection their face covering really offers? A new Duke University study attempts to answer that very question.

The study conducted at Duke will help not only in the Triangle but all across the country.

Fitted N95 masks performed very well, according to the study, by keeping droplets inside the mask. But some coverings didn’t do so well. (snip)

Despite testing, the surgical mask didn’t do as well as the N95 because there are some gaps in the mask where droplets can escape. Researchers found that the two-layer cloth mask doesn’t give droplets much room to escape. However, it does not provide a tight seal like the N95. (snip)

The bandana face-covering did not do well in the study. The researchers said it may look fashionable, but it did very little for protection.

“Because the material is thin, it transmits lots of droplets,” Fischer said. “A bandana has lots of gaps.”

Lastly, and perhaps most surprisingly, the neck fleece had the highest number of droplets released – more than if no mask were worn. The researchers believe the material breaks larger droplets into smaller particles.

So, will they ban use of ones like neck fleece, which most people refer to as gaiters, and bandanas? How about all these colorful masks worn by people that are typically still rather thin, not much different from t-shirt material, and leave openings? Will governor’s mandate that the companies making them test them to see if effective?

In fairness, if they work, wear it when you are supposed to. It is what it is. Such is life pretty much around the world right now.

How about every day?

Bummer: Bat Soup Virus Lockdowns Will Have Really No Effect On Climate (scam)

So, let’s see: the Cult of Climastrology has been screeching about reducing carbon pollution. Lockdowns significantly reduced it, temporarily. So, there should be at least a blip in the temperature measurements, right?

COVID-19 Lockdowns Will Barely Reduce Global Warming, New Study Finds

The shelter in place orders that brought clean skies to some of the world’s most polluted cities and saw greenhouse gas emissions plummet were just a temporary relief that provided an illusory benefit to the long-term consequences of the climate crisis. According to new research, the COVID-19 lockdowns will have a “neglible” impact on global warming, as Newshub in New Zealand reported.

The severe measures that were taken on a global scale to stem the tide of the novel coronavirus pandemic did curb pollution in the atmosphere, but the researchers found the impact will cut global heating by just 0.01 degrees Celsius by 2030, as The Guardian reported.

“The direct effect of the pandemic-driven [lockdown] will be negligible,” said the researchers, whose analysis was led by Piers Forster at the University of Leeds in the UK, as The Guardian reported. “In contrast, with an economic recovery tilted towards green stimulus and reductions in fossil fuel investments, it is possible to avoid future warming of 0.3C by 2050.”

In other words, they’re now at the Excuse Making segment, because there should be at least some temporary change. But, they know it is mule fritters

The study was published in Nature Climate Change. To figure out the impact of the lockdowns, the researchers looked at mobility data from Google and Apple in 123 countries that covers 99 percent of fossil fuel emissions. The information gives real-time information on travel and work patterns, which allows researchers to use advanced computations to estimate emissions levels, according to The Guardian.

In other words, they used your information without permission

What they found was that emissions from people using transportation was at its lowest in April, with nitrogen oxide levels falling by 30 percent and carbon dioxide levels dropping by 25 percent, according to Newshub.

But, they claim really no affect.

“It is now make or break for the 1.5 Celsius target,” said Forster, as The Guardian reported. “This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to really change the direction of society. We do not have to go back to where we were, because times of crisis are also the time to change.”

Modern Socialism for all Everyone Else.
