Newsweek Wonders Why The Climate Cult Is So Darned White

It’s pretty much because it’s fashionable to be a climate cultists among 1st World middle and upper class folks, particularly in Europe, America, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. Who are mostly the hardcore Modern Socialists, and ones with not much else to really be concerned with. This became a big issue after the end of the Cold War where some had to find an issue to use to control people and increase government power. Those who were supporters of the USSR moved into the extreme environmental movement, which morphed into the Climate Cult. Anyhow, reasons, mostly having to do with it being fashionable among mostly white leftists with no other real concerns

Why is the Climate Change Movement so White?

Climate change campaigners from ethnic minority backgrounds have warned that the movement is too white and middle class and erases the contributions of people of color in fighting climate injustice.

It comes as global environmental movement Extinction Rebellion (XR) restarted large scale protests in the U.K., vowing to target the Houses of Parliament as well as other “key institutions of power” in a bid to raise awareness of the climate emergency.

A University of Michigan study found that the “current state of racial diversity in environmental organizations is troubling” in the U.S. with minorities employed as staff or on the boards of the organizations not exceeding 16 percent.*

In the U.S., people of color live with 66 percent more air pollution while in the U.K. ethnic minority and disadvantaged communities have also been found to be hardest hit because of differences is socio-economic prosperity.

So, is it that Cult of Climastrology groups are not hiring minorities (BTW, the do know that these people are not minorities in many parts of the world, right? Seems like a rather patronizing term) on purpose, preferring to hire white people, or do the non-whites just not give a crap about working for these CoC groups? Kinda like how most non-whites do not care about being a part of the CoC.

Climate justice campaigners like Suzanne Dhaliwal, director and co-founder of the U.K. Tar Sands Network, campaigning against U.K. corporations and financial institutions invested in the Alberta Tar Sands in Canada, says the historical contributions of grassroots movements and people of color are being rewritten by groups such as XR.

“XR are a PR brand,” Dhaliwal told Newsweek. “The way they have told the history of climate change and the way the media reports it, it’s as though Greta Thunberg invented climate change, erasing all of those of us who did the work are pushing corporations, banks, climate literacy that’s been just washed out by them.”

She says that the history of the climate justice movement has a legacy with a rich history of fighting for land sovereignty, against the devastation of territory and the patriarchy and the contributions of marginalized groups are overlooked.

OK, so, XR and the cult of St. Greta are raaaaacist, and, what does climate have to do with land sovereignty and patriarchy and stuff?

“Media reporting only reports on white middle-class folks, it doesn’t report on those of us who have been leading on the front line of the crisis,” she said.

Oh, good, the media is raaaaacist, too. After a lot of whining about XR we get

A second factor is down to the socio-economic condition people from ethnic minority backgrounds find themselves in.

“Environmental concerns are not as high a priority for black and brown people who are struggling to have their life be as good as it can be. They are not thinking about the long term as much as more privileged white people can.

Exactly. People without that much to really be concerned over have time to manufacture their own crisis’.

“That has held back people from participating or at least worrying about these issues. Even once they do start worrying, they hit institutional barriers among the climate movement by being made to feel like their voice is not being heard.

So, the uber-white climate cultists are holding back People of Color? They’re actually racists? Huh.

    Trump defends coronavirus response after Woodward interview audio published: ‘I don’t want to scare people’

    What the Fuk was this president thinking by giving 20 hours of audio recorded interviews with the scumbag Woodward who has already been credited with bringing down One president?

    I mean Trump is such a narcicist that he believes if he just speaks it is written in stone as the truth not even contemplating how thoughts that become spoken words can be used against him and WILL BE.

    Once again As I suggested the left will Trot out one thing after another after another to turn the peoples attention from burning America to Trump is a meanie and said mean things or whatever.

    Anyone with half a brain knows they want a president facing a crisis bravely not like Joe Biden Hiding in his basement wearing a facemask. But when you have a communist press then you can make Biden look like Jesus and Trump the Anti-Christ.

    You can bet the left has a whole list of these lined up to trot them out when this Saul Alinsky tactic is met.

    RULE 7: “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” So after a few days the Soldier lie went away replaced by this. After a few days it will be replaced by something else.

    Address it, and Move On. Pound the riots, pound the racism of the left, pound your acoomplishments, pound your policy going forward.

    HRC lost in 2016 because Trump made her defend instead of attack. Trump is a horrible defender. He is such a lame brain he can’t defend worth a hoot. God how I wished we had a real politician with Trumps demeanor and policies in the White House because I do not like Trump but I will vote for him because he gets “stuff” done.

    Attack. Don’t defend. Biden is a weaker and more vulnerable candidate than HRC was. His VP is a communist. He is about to drop dead at any moment. This should be a landslide but Then of course Trump goes and gives Woodward about 3000 quotes that will appear every other day for the next 2 months.

    Smooth move EX-LAX.

    The warmunists are heavily white because it takes someone who has the resources not to have to worry about the economy depressing forces of the actions they want to see taken.

    We are told, seemingly all the time now, that blacks in the United States, and around the world, are economically depressed because of raaaaacism. Why, if the left believe that blacks are so economically distressed, would anybody be surprised that people who are more concerned with putting food on the table today than what the temperature might be eighty years from now would not be all that interested in threatening the jobs they have now, or artificially raising prices for everything?

    Mr. Woodward played trump by appealing to his hubris. Obviously, trump is not a smart man.

    What trump confessed may be more concerning than his mistake in doing the interview.

    trump appeals to his followers because he 1) ridicules, assaults and harms those his followers hate (blacks, immigrants, libs, gays, reporters, scientists etc) and he 2) IS promoting their agenda (reactionary judges, increased military-industrial complex spending, tax cuts for the rich, corporate support (taxes, deregulation), slashing environmental regs…

    His other accomplishments: Quarter million dead Americans by year’s end, recession/depression (at least for blue collar workers), massive debt to prop up the failing economy, loss of international prestige, loss of Americans’ faith in our institutions, lie after lie after lie, demeaning our military, inviting foreign interference, extortion…

    trump careens from fake crisis to fake crisis, all to keep his true believers terrified. Caravans of brown people invading! Communist infiltrators! Deep State! Obama! BLMs razing the suburbs! Men in dresses attacking kids in bathrooms! Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes… The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!

      Funny how blacks and Hispanics are flocking to him.

      Jeffery’s getting desperate. Now it’s 250 instead of 200,000, all while the CDc keeps showing cases and fatalities bottoming out.

      recession/depression (at least for blue collar workers)

      Only in the Blue zone where it all started.

      loss of international prestige

      You mean because he’s nominated for a Nobel doing something instead of just showing up?

      loss of Americans’ faith in our institutions

      More like exposing institutions’ lack of concern for Americans.

      lie after lie after lie

      That’s you and yours, sweetie.

      demeaning our military

      Baby killers? Nazis?

      Fake News careens from fake crisis to fake crisis, all to keep his true believers terrified.

      FIFY

      PS Remember the Lloyd Bridges character in the Hot Shots! movies?

      “Bazooka round at Little Big Horn”

      That’s Jeffery’s nominee.
