Bummer: Indonesians Not Particularly Concerned With Doing Something About ‘Climate Change’ After Floods

Floods are nothing new. They’ve happened plenty of times. That’s part of life on Earth. But, these people in Indonesia are supposed to be worried about your carbon footprint

After Indonesia’s deadly floods, few hear climate ‘wake up call’

JAKARTA (Reuters) – Floods that killed more than 50 people in Indonesia’s capital after the biggest rainfall since records began should be a wake-up call to climate change in one of the world’s biggest carbon emitters, environmental groups said.

But, despite the catastrophe in Southeast Asia’s biggest city, authorities see no greater impetus for more cuts to planned carbon dioxide emission reductions or other measures to address climate change.

The floods “should serve as a strong reminder to the government that things can’t be business as usual,” said Yuyun Harmono, a campaign manager at the Indonesian Forum for the Environment, the country’s biggest green group.

With one of the world’s longest coastlines Indonesia, the world’s fourth most populous country, is extremely vulnerable to climate change. The metropolitan region of the capital Jakarta is home to 30 million people and parts of the city near the coast are sinking just as sea levels are rising.

There are no actual measurement stations: how do they know the sea is rising there? Further, it is highly tectonic: could that be a big reason? Oh, wait, sorry, you ate a burger with veggies from California, brought by fossil fueled 18 wheeler. This is your fault.

Social media users criticized the government for not doing enough on climate change after the flooding. Twitter user @wolfiecoconut said: “Indonesia is a country that is prone to disaster but we don’t care about the environment.”

But the green lobby has little sway in Indonesia.

Only 18% of Indonesians believe there is a link between human activity and climate change, according to a 2019 survey, the smallest percentage among the world’s 23 biggest countries.

You know why? Because the people are not rich or upper middle class like most of the people pushing the Cult of Climastrology. They have real worries in their lives. They don’t have the luxury of being a Climate Justice Warrior.

“There aren’t a lot of people who realize the impact of climate change,” said Nirwono Joga, a researcher at the Urban Studies Center in Jakarta.

“When the flood recedes and people get back to their homes and resume normal activities, flood management or concrete actions to combat climate change will be forgotten too.”

It’s pretty much forgotten now, too. When people are in the midst of a natural disaster, they don’t need cultists coming in and preaching about taking money away from those affected in the form of taxes and fees, nor removing more freedom, liberty, and choice.

    Sea level is also measured by satellites such as the Jason 3
    It uses the center of the Earth’s mass as a fixed point
    They also tell us that not only is sea level rising but also the RATE of rise is increasing Dy/Dx
    Indonesia is a rather poor country they are rightfully more concerned with only the most immediate problems

      But I was told Obama stopped the rise of the oceans!

      You mean the little shit lied to us? Say it ain’t so, John.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        You misheard what you told. Or you’re lying.

        Anyway, if the world had taken seriously the threat of global warming we could be on the way to stopping the rise of the oceans.

        Butt, The Big Turd, stopped that!

        • formwiz says:

          No, we were told by the Mocha Messiah himself.

          Didn’t he say, “this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal”?

          Sounds like he didn’t do much about it.

          Especially with a supermajority in Congress.

        • Jl says:

          The oceans were rising long before “global warming”.

        • Kye says:

          I didn’t lie or mishear anything. Listen to the video, I’m sure you are familiar with Hussein’s claim that “This is the moment the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal”, are you not?

          Perhaps you can’t hear or you’re lying.

          Trump 2020 Stop the climate hoax and the treasonous coup!

      • david7134 says:

        Great video, but watching Obama makes me puke.

    • formwiz says:

      So you admit global idiocy isn’t a big deal.

      And what, exactly, does differential calc have to do with it?

    There’s the old reliable Democommies out supporting our enemies because Orange Man Bad. What’s it like in the trenches Fredo, burn any flags today?

    Trump 2020 Stop our enemies within.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      What’s it like Bluto to be a war monger? Or is it Reverend Bluto? Did you assault any Muslims today, Bluto. You’ve probably had a boner to invade Iran for decades anyway. MOM = Moron Orange Man.

      You probably thought the unnecessary and moronic invasion and occupation of Iraq was a good idea too, Bluto. How does that look now (at least $2 trillion wasted and 4000 brave men and women killed and many thousands more wounded).

      • formwiz says:

        War monger?

        What’s it like to be a Commie coward? And you’re the one who hangs out in Mommy’s basement.

        You probably thought the unnecessary and moronic invasion and occupation of Iraq was a good idea too, Bluto

        Actually, it was. Got rid of a vicious dictator.

        How does that look now (at least $2 trillion wasted and 4000 brave men and women killed and many thousands more wounded).

        Figures? And you were right up front calling our guys baby killers the way you have since ‘Nam.

        Same old Commie rap. And you always root for the other side.

        I see where the Selective Service site crashed because Fake News has all the snowflakes panicking that we might go to war.

        Your people aren’t only gutless, they’re stupid.

      • Kye says:

        The real war mongers are those of you who fear war. You allow the enemy to dictate terms because of your cowardice. I’m the last person you should call a war monger, Fredo. Unlike you I actually fought in a war. I know what they’re like. I shot people and was shot myself. I am not a proponent of war however, I’m not ready for surrender.

        If you’ve been paying attention for the last several years you should know I was not for the Iraq war nor the Afghanistan war and I am not in favor of war in Iran but we should NEVER be pushed around and we never should be afraid of war. If you understand the opposite of war isn’t peace, it’s slavery you’d know that. But what do you care about the truth about me or anything else that doesn’t fit your narrative?

        I await your apology for saying I supported ” unnecessary and moronic invasion and occupation of Iraq” but as usual you won’t. Treason and treachery go together with you guys as do lies and lying. It’s who you are.

        Trump 2020 Keep the phony hero’s out of the way.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          We’ll apologize after you, Bluto.

          When did the Vietnamese invade the US? And when did Congress declare war?

          Mr. Trump also claimed to have opposed the Iraq Invasion.

          Slavery is certainly not the opposite of war.

          We made clear that Trump was unfit, mentally, morally and psychologically to be president, and this is just the kind of mess into which we feared this man would land us.

          When he solves the Iran problem, which he caused, will he work on the North Korea problem?

          • david7134 says:

            Jeff,
            That has to be your most stupid series of comments yet. Winning. MAGA.

          • formwiz says:

            We’ll apologize after you, Bluto.

            you better do it now, jerkoff. The reasons why Trump did what he did are coming out and he’s going to be a hero in this country.

            Unlike you.

            When did the Vietnamese invade the US? And when did Congress declare war?

            Ike didn’t want to see Indo-China go the same route as Red China, so he offered assistance and South Vietnam accepted. And we didn’t declare war. We didn’t have to. We were already in a war to the death with Communism, but I see you’re sticking up for your crowd again.

            Slavery is certainly not the opposite of war.

            Tell it to the people who were in Poland in 1939. Tell it to the people in the Lodz Ghetto.

            We made clear that Trump was unfit, mentally, morally and psychologically to be president, and this is just the kind of mess into which we feared this man would land us.

            Well, you and your cartoon characters don’t count for anything.

            And I repeat

            Intelligence revealed the time had come for Soleimani’s demise as recent intelligence indicated he had just arrived in Iraq to lead a coup, arrest the president, and take over the U.S. embassy. Just like Trump asserted there would be no repeat of Benghazi in Baghdad, by taking out Soleimani he was also making it clear there would be no repeat of the 1979 hostage crisis</b.

            So your Democrat sitzpinkleren get shown up.

            When he solves the Iran problem, which he caused, will he work on the North Korea problem?

            He just did and he already has. When was the last time Li’l Kim fired off a missile?

  3. formwiz says:

    Where does the water that causes rising sea levels come from?

    Zippy was supposed to have stopped all that, so why are you afraid to tell us all.

    Didn’t he say, “this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal”?

    Sounds like he didn’t do much about it.

    Especially with that supermajority in Congress.
