Fossil Fuels Might Be The New Slavery And Jim Crow Or Something

Over here we have Al Gore saying that God wants us to fight global warming. Since he’s the exact type of person Warmists tell us to ignore…namely, he isn’t a climate scientist, his degrees are in divinity…, let’s ignore him and

Global warming is not about smokestacks, it’s about ourselves

Are fossil fuels the new slavery, the new Jim Crow?

If you believe the dire predictions of world leaders and many top scientists, it’s hard not to conclude that the burning coal, oil and gas might even be worse. It is not just immoral; it poses an existential threat to life as we know it.

While you may be angry that President Donald Trump pulled us out of the Paris climate accord, you are probably horrified that the agreement is a symbolic gesture that will only slow the rise in greenhouse gas emissions. The inconvenient truth is that the best we could do collectively is not nearly enough to thwart what many see as a looming catastrophe.

What are people who know and care to do?

Our history offers some guidance. Slavery and Jim Crow were not just brutal practices – they were all-encompassing systems that implicated every non-black citizen. Even if one recognized them as evil, it was almost impossible to avoid complicity. That was the price society exacted of all born into it. (snip)

Fossil fuels shape our world just as surely as Jim Crow and other forms of systemic racism once defined America. Almost all we do, our ease and comfort, depends on them. They are both the immovable object and the irresistible force.

    Our esteemed host erred:

    his degrees are in divinity

    ‘Fraid not. Mr Gore earned an AB from Harvard, and then, after his military service, enrolled in Divinity School at Vanderbilt. He stopped attending classes, received incompletes, which later converted into Fs. Despite that, as the son of a United States Senator, he was accepted into Vanderbilt’s law school; he quit law school to run for the House seat his father once held.

    “Systemic racism”.

    Every race on planet earth can indulge in this…. except the white race.

    Personally, I’m getting real tired of this dog and pony show.

    Any dominant culture can, and does, practice systemic racism against minorities. Whites in a dominant Black culture can certainly suffer from systemic racism. But in caucasian dominated Western cultures, whites are the perps not the victims.

    Listen, cons deny that burning fossil fuels is the cause of global warming, so of course any and all components are suspect. For centuries dominant western culture and corporations have exploited poorer African, Asian and South American nations AND enjoyed the comfort and convenience of fossil-fuel derived energy at the expense of the planet Earth. Now the time is coming when we’ll all be forced to pay the piper in one way or another.
