Interesting: The Only Way To Solve Hotcoldwetdry Is To Solve Inequality

Remember, this is all about science, and we totally need to take the politics out (before discussing the politics)

If you want to solve climate change, you need to solve income inequality

We often talk about how climate change exacerbates social and economic inequality, but rarely do we consider the opposite: that inequality itself can be a driver of climate change.

“What’s missing from the conversation is what our inequality crisis is doing to our planet,” said Susan Holmberg, a fellow at the Roosevelt Institute and author of a new report that shows how unequal societies inflict more environmental damage than more economically even societies. “One key topic that is still overlooked is how environmental degradation and climate change are themselves the toxic byproducts of our inequality problem,” Holmberg said.

Some of the points actually make sense and are common sense, once you take the Cult of Climastrology out of it

Her analysis calls for a greater understanding of the link between climate change and inequality. Many people who live in low-income communities, for example, cannot afford to retrofit their homes to make them more energy efficient, meaning they use more power than necessary, generating more pollution.

CO2 is not pollution, but, regardless, I have a solution: anyone who is rich (meaning they get a paycheck) and believes in anthropogenic climate change/global warming should have at least 40% of their earnings taken by government to redistribute to those who are less fortunate, but, especially people like Al Gore, Barack Obama, John Kerry, Arianna Huffington, John Podesta (who started the Center for American Progress, which created Think Progress), etc and so on.

    No, no, no. Don’t take the money from the WORKERS.

    Take the money from the Foundations, Trust Funds, “Charities” – that have high administrative costs, low payouts.
    – Elite colleges have HUGE endowments, but only give out a pittance
    – Trust Funds – how elite families direct their money to political activities – yeah, I know that technically, they can’t – but they do, by giving to OTHER foundations, who, then pass that money off to the political side
    – The “Charities”, nonprofits, like the Scouting organizations, Planned Parenthood, and ACLU, whose mission is to implement Progressive/Radical change

    They could start by telling these low income people that if you can’t afford to breed then until you can then you should use contraception.
