Harris, Ocasio-Cortez Introduce Climate Equity Plan

It’s really all about patronizing “people of color” while using the climate change scam as the plaform

U.S. Senator Kamala D. Harris and U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Introduce Landmark Legislation to Empower Frontline Communities

U.S. Senator Kamala D. Harris (D-CA) and U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY-14) last Thursday introduced the Climate Equity Act, legislation to ensure that the United States government centers communities on the frontlines of the climate crisis in policy related to climate and the environment. For the last year, Harris and Ocasio-Cortez have worked with frontline community leaders to receive feedback on this legislation to ensure the strongest policy possible.

“COVID-19 has laid bare the realities of systemic racial, health, economic, and environmental injustices that persist in our country,”said Sen. Harris. “The environment we live in cannot be disentangled from the rest of our lives, and it is more important than ever that we work toward a more just and equitable future. That is why, as we combat the climate crisis and build a clean economy; we must put justice and equity first. I’m proud to partner with Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez on this comprehensive proposal to empower communities that have been neglected by policymakers for far too long.”

“The Democratic Party is now finally starting to embrace what many activists have long advocated: climate policy must be driven by and centered around frontline communities,”said Rep. Ocasio-Cortez. “Major environmental policies must be written by the black, brown, and low-income people who have been and will be disproportionately impacted by it, just like the Green New Deal envisioned. For too long, policies that affect communities of color have been determined by a few white men in a room in Washington. The budding grassroots movement and electoral results we’re seeing around the country make clear that Americans want to upend old, exclusionary order. I’m proud to partner with Senator Harris on a bill that will pave the way for a new, inclusionary way of doing things in D.C.”

The Climate Equity Act creates an administrative structure within the federal government to ensure that as we boldly address the climate crisis, our policies are founded in equity and justice for frontline communities. By ensuring that frontline community leaders and allies are playing a fundamental role in shaping and guiding federal policy, the Climate Equity Ac thelps hold the government accountable for creating a more just and equitable future as we tackle the climate crisis and build a clean economy.

So, whatever happened to AOC’s Green New Deal, submitted in February, 2019? She hasn’t demanded a vote on that. But, up, this whole Climate Equity act seems familiar

AOC, Kamala Harris Release A Climate Equity Plan Or Something

It’s almost like this whole ‘climate change’ meme has nothing to do with science and everything to do with their authoritarian policies

Yeah, that was a year ago. And they’ve done what, since? No votes on this legislation, which they said supports the GND, which hasn’t been voted on in the House, and saw every Democrat, including Harris, vote “present” in the Senate. Now they’re resubmitting this loser legislation using COVID-19 as the backdrop? Really, this is about patronizing people of color, mostly blacks, as the election approaches, proclaiming that black people, er, frontline communities, will have seats at the table when creating government rules and regs and stuff.
