Boston Warmists Add Justice And Coronavirus Recovery To Their Green New Deal

I triple dog dare the Boston government to institute all the tenets of their Green New Deal right now, which would mean shutting down their airports, most of their shipping ports, restricting all use of fossil fuels in the city, getting rid of the Celtics, Bruins, Red Sox, and minor league teams in the city limits, replacing all energy with wind and solar, including during the winter, and so much more. Give it a w whirl, Boston

Boston Progressives Expand the Green New Deal to Include Justice Concerns and Pandemic Recovery

A year and a half ago, after the House passed and the Senate defeated Green New Deal resolutions in Washington, Boston City Councilor Michelle Wu posed an ambitious question to the large local climate community: “What could the city do in the vacuum of federal leadership?”

Nice lie by Inside Climate News’ Katelyn Weisbrod: the House has never voted on it. Literally all that’s been done in the House was it was introduced. Not even referred to committee.

By the time she and her activist coterie finished answering that question this summer, the scope had grown exponentially.

“Looking at 2020,” said Nina Schlegel, a Boston climate activist on Wu’s staff, “we were like, ‘Wow, we really need to think about racial justice and make that really explicit,” and “we need to respond to the pandemic because cities are the government closest to the people. We need to be responsive, and there’s no reason why a local green new deal cannot incorporate all of that.”

The end result, released by Wu’s office last month, is called the Boston Green New Deal and Just Recovery plan. Wu and Schlegel said the document, while inspired by similar blueprints produced by cities like Seattle, Los Angeles and New York, is unique in its scope, thanks to circumstance.

Its climate ambition is clear in its section on accelerating decarbonization: the plan calls for citywide carbon neutrality by 2040, 10 years ahead of the deadline established by Boston’s 2019 Climate Action Plan, in addition to 100 percent sustainable electricity by 2035, and net-zero municipal buildings by 2024.

So, it’s a unicorn plan which is all about left wing priorities. And, why would they need racial justice? Isn’t Boston an uber-progressive Democratic Party voting city? Is this update GND admitting that Boston is super racist? It is considered to be one of the most, if not the most, racist place to play major league baseball.

It’s scope is clear in its call for issuing municipal bonds to fund solar installation on city buildings, divesting municipal funds from private prisons and gun manufacturers, expanding Boston’s canopy of about 300,000 trees, and creating an Urban Climate Corps for training and employing youth to install green infrastructure.

“We really want to zoom out a little bit and talk about how we can seek policy change that also dismantles and rectifies past injustices,” said Schlegel. “That means looking at housing and displacement and looking at the proliferation of luxury development. It means looking at unequal access to transit, and where our heat islands are located.”

Sounds like this is all about politics, not science. And you know that Cancel Culture will rear its head against everything Wrongthink

The plan calls for a comprehensive “justice audit” of city programs and spending. “The results from a nationwide survey of Black individuals shows Boston is considered the least welcoming of eight major American cities, and only 4 percent of households earning $75,000 or more across Greater Boston are Black,” the plan says. “Air pollution and related illnesses are more prevalent in communities of color and result from government decisions about zoning and transportation infrastructure. City approvals for development continue to shape structural inequities as Boston misses opportunities for equitable wealth creation and justice.”

Yup, sounds like Democratic Party run Boston is pretty racist.

    I know many of you don’t keep up with what is happening around the globe but at the CIA one of their missions is to do just that.

    We have a coming Economic Forum which has put forth three things in their world agenda.

    The Great Reset agenda would have three main components. The first would steer the market toward fairer outcomes. To this end, governments should improve coordination (for example, in tax, regulatory, and fiscal policy), upgrade trade arrangements, and create the conditions for a “stakeholder economy.” At a time of diminishing tax bases and soaring public debt, governments have a powerful incentive to pursue such action.

    The second component of a Great Reset agenda would ensure that investments advance shared goals, such as equality and sustainability…….THIS IS STIMULUS MONEY to spur the economy.

    HOWEVER in relations to the second goal of the ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT run by LEFTISTS We find this nice tidbit.

    Rather than using these funds, as well as investments from private entities and pension funds, to fill cracks in the old system, we should use them to create a new one that is more resilient, equitable, and sustainable in the long run. This means, for example, building “green” urban infrastructure and creating incentives for industries to improve their track record on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) metrics.

    Got that? Build renewables will be a supurb way to bring the world from the brink of depression by building green and enforcing these mandates on the world.

    The third and final priority of a Great Reset agenda is to harness the innovations of the Fourth Industrial Revolution to support the public good, especially by addressing health and social challenges. During the COVID-19 crisis, companies, universities, and others have joined forces to develop diagnostics, therapeutics, and possible vaccines; establish testing centers; create mechanisms for tracing infections; and deliver telemedicine. Imagine what could be possible if similar concerted efforts were made in every sector.

    AND NOW????

    Now you know why Obama never pulled out of Iraq because his buddy Joe Biden was making billions off the misery and suffering of Muslims. Just as even now the democrats are fighting Trump tooth and nail from pulling out of Afghanistan and removing SOME troops from Germany.

    But even worse: The COVID-19 crisis is affecting every facet of people’s lives in every corner of the world. But tragedy need not be its only legacy. On the contrary, the pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world to create a healthier, more equitable, and more prosperous future.

    TLDR: Understanding the world dynamics will help you understand why locking down the economies of the world is a priority. Destroying the worlds economies will ultimately destroy American economy because there is no one to sell your products too.

    The new world order that everyone who loves freedom fears is rapidly approaching.

    Former national security adviser John Bolton disputed the main thesis of The Atlantic’s recent report alleging that President Trump disparaged fallen American soldiers in France, calling the claim “simply false” in an appearance on “The Story” Monday.

    “According to what that article said, the president made disparaging remarks about soldiers and people buried in the cemetery in connection with the decision for him not to go to the ceremony that was planned that afternoon, and that was simply false,” Bolton said.

    Imagine that. John Bolton defending Trump.

    Actually this is genius on the Democrats part. They have someone who the left despises with a passion defend the president to keep this lie alive. Bolton pretends he is defending Trump when in reality he is simply keeping the lie alive by speaking out on it. Bolton is a never Trumper. He was Bush’s right hand man and if you remember he was standing beside Trump pressing with all his might on launching an attack on Iran.

    Trump finally managed to throw off the gorilla in the room and Bolton lost his mind. They shot down a drone. We should kill 1000’s of Muslims for that. Trump is/was and always has been anti-war.

    Remember when he was talked into firing tomahawks at Syria. The MSM said Trump is finally acting Presidential.

    The same MSM that called Bush Hitler for firing Tomahawks at Iraq.

    When put in the broader context of the entire subset of factions that run this world it is clear to see that the agenda that is most powerful is the War faction. Your sons and daughters do not matter and if we put a Democrat, any democrat back in the White house, guess where your sons and daughters are going?

    Back to war. Biden will be forced into another war. More of our children will die. Meanwhile the very real deep state is trying so hard to overthrow this president because he does not march to their tune.

    Quite simply if you want your children to live I suggest you rethink your Democratic vote. If you put Biden/Harris in the White House your children will be going back over seas to fight yet another endless war.
