Surprise: Eric Holthaus Admits ‘Climate Change’ Is Not About Science

If you’re surprised by this, raise your hand….OK, the Chinese spy watching your through your webcam says none of you did (via Watts Up With That? from Climate Depot)

Climate Depot’s Marc Morana spends his time highlight Holthaus and other Warmists who said this is not about ‘climate change’, such as

Holthaus is also revealing how identity politics has taken over the climate debate. See: NASA scientist Dr. Kate Marvel links ‘climate change’ to ‘white supremacy’ – ‘We’ll never head off climate catastrophe without dismantling white supremacy’ – Calls for climate & racial ‘justice’

AOC’s staff has bragged that the Green New Deal is about wealth redistribution, not climate. Former Ocasio-Cortez campaign aide Waleed Shahid admitted that Ocasio-Cortez’s GND was a “proposal to redistribute wealth and power from the people on top to the people on the bottom.”

In addition, AOC’s Chief-Of-Staff Saikat Chakrabarti also revealed that the Green New Deal was not about climate change. The Washington Post reported in 2019: Chakrabarti had an unexpected disclosure. “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” he said, “is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.” “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Chakrabarti continued. “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.”

Greta Thunberg explained in 2019: “The climate crisis is not just about the environment. It is a crisis of human rights, of justice, and of political will. Colonial, racist, and patriarchal systems of oppression have created and fueled it. We need to dismantle them all. Our political leaders can no longer shirk their responsibilities.”

Even the leading climate cultists know this is not about the climate, and make the mistake of saying it periodically. Looking at the Holthaus article

Earlier this month, to talk about how they tell climate stories, and how we might be able to tell better climate stories – together.

For me, a striking part of the conversation was hearing each participant give their introductions in their native languages.

Speaking these words in this way is a political act, an act of defiance against centuries of colonialism and erasure – the same forces that too often exclude Indigenous voices from storytelling about climate. For many First Nations, only a few speakers of Indigenous languages remain.

Sounds rather patronizing.

Telling stories of resistance – against consumer-driven culture, or the extractive capitalism of the fossil fuel industry, or police brutality – makes transformative action on climate more likely.

Sounds like this is just another Modern Socialist movement.

Our panel taught me a great deal about how to tell better climate stories. To capture the main points, here are six main principles for better climate storytelling from our participants.

How about proving it with science? Oh, right, that would be silly. And since they haven’t done so in all these years, they aren’t going to do it now.

“I come from Indigenous communities that are putting their bodies on the frontline to battle against destructive capitalism. What capitalism is doing to Mother Earth is what racism and patriarchy is doing to Indigenous women’s bodies.”

And anti-capitalist….while using technology systems designed thanks to capitalism.

    They want to return to the Eden of pre-1850 earth before the Industrial Revolution destroyed everything by increasing wealth globally, increasing lifespans globally, eradicating diseases through research, vaccines and sanitary conditions made possible my modern technology.
    In short, they want to go back to Eden, forgetting about how hard, brutal and short life was then.
