Hey, What If We Treated ‘Climate Change’ Like A Child Or Something

These people are wackadoodle

Could we save Earth if we treated it like a child? We are in crisis and need to heal the planet.

As mothers, we have often felt engulfed by the gnawing worry of climate change, the jagged feeling akin to that moment when you, as a mother, drop off your child in the care of someone who hasn’t yet earned your trust. You see your child’s bright, observant gaze. Their nerves express concern to you with quiet messages designed to tug at your unique receptivity – a tight squeeze, a shifted foot, a tear in the corner of the eye. And you ask yourself: What if they are imperiled and unprotected when I am not present?

So, because a few of you are bat guano loopy, the rest of us must comply? Piss off.

The three of us (Kealoha Fox, Maya Soetoro-Ng and Zelda Keller, the screed writers) form the backbone of the Institute for Climate and Peace, a nonprofit organization based out of Hawaii focusing on the intersections between climate change and peace. We know how precarious the situation is. And we know that many of our leaders – well-intentioned as they may be – are ignoring the truest solutions to bring about peace and climate resilience. Central to our climate justice work is helping to frame the conversation about what peace is.

Would this be the same Hawaii that wouldn’t survive without fossil fuels, which bring in food, goods, and vacationers?

Historically, peace has been too often confused with the topic of security and defined simply as an absence of war and violent conflict, otherwise known as “negative peace.” However, there is another type of peace: “positive peace,” which means the presence of active systems and processes that allow human potential to flourish.


Many systems that led to positive peace were integral to ancestral communities but dissipated during the industrial revolution. Indeed, technology has provided many boons to civilization, but it has led directly to our climate crisis, and now technology alone cannot get us out of this emergency.

Positive peaceful climate solutions present the greatest opportunity to build social cohesion, create lasting commitments that survive beyond partisanship, and are sustained beyond each of us. Our work, which complements broad efforts to reduce emissions, focuses on locally rooted, more tailored measures. This includes things like the preservation or restoration of cultural assets on our coastlines, just and dignified migration, democracy building and gender inclusive leadership.

????? Does anyone understand this Climaspeak?

That is why our institute is dedicated to a new narrative: Climate science and social science are integrated, collaborative fields helping to advance community-based climate solutions for thriving, cohesive communities.

So, basically this is all politics.

Despite the demonstrated successes of locally based efforts like these, governments and philanthropies invest most climate finance in top-down and technology-centric approaches. An International Institute of Environment and Development assessment of climate finance between 2003 and 2016 estimated that less than 10% went to locally led climate change projects.

One of the biggest reasons that gatherings like the U.N. Climate Change Conference or publications like IPCC reports fail to achieve large goals, or inspire global change, is because too few of the solutions they promote invest robustly in communal infrastructure that fosters healthy communication, compromise and the realization of shared goals.

Give us money.

We must invest in positive peaceful climate solutions around the world. In essence, dividing the planet into smaller canoes where people come together to build stronger vessels that navigate even the most unknown reality beyond the horizon – beyond the doldrums.

Good grief. Here’s a question: why must we? What if the rest of us aren’t interested? Why do we have to comply? Why can’t you just leave the rest of us the hell alone?

    What would nuCuns do if global warming was treated as a child? Nothing.

    NuCuns only care about children before they’re born.

      …if global warming was treated like a child?

      Knowing his history, Rimjob would probably assrape it.

      Bwaha! Lolgfy https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

        CumBreath has never explained how his saliva DNA test turned out to be canine DNA. His mommie is ashamed of him.

        Bwaha! Lolgfy

    • CarolAnn says:

      And Elwood doesn’t care either before OR after they’re born. Before they are born they are fodder for democrat abortionists and after their born their fodder for democrat perverts, rapists, groomers and abusers. So to democrats kids are like anything else, a means to an end. Power.

      • The catholic but not Catholic Elwood P. dOwd says:

        OK, groomer. Most child abusers are cunservative. We get it. With cunservatives, “Its Always About Projection”.

        Let’s work together to end all abortions without restricting a woman’s right to control her own reproduction.

        Poverty, education deficits, limited access to contraception, discrimination against women all contribute to abortions. Did we mention poverty? Do you support public child care/day care from a very early age? That would reduce abortion.

        Almost all abortions occur before 12 weeks gestation. If you were king, would you ban all abortions? How about abortifacient “contraceptive” methods that prevent endometrial implantation of a fertilized ovum (babies)? Millions of fertilized ova (babies) are lost every year, many without the woman even knowing, others recognized as a miscarriage. Do you support investing in research to save these babies?

        The Republicun counterproductive policies on poverty, taxes, labor, health care, trade, education, child care ALL contribute to abortion by keeping poor people poor. YOU are increasing the abortion rate! But rather than work from the ground floor, the Republicun “solution” is to ban abortion. Rape, incest, incestuous rape, health of the woman… none of this matters to a Republicun.

        Although the abortion rate dropped 30% under Clinton and 26% under Obama, fact checkers point out that the data oversimplifies the apparent causes. They conclude that presidents have little proven effects on abortion rate.

          …and counting.

          • Two Gun Safes Elwood P. dOwd says:

            150,000,000 Americans dead since 1973, and counting.

            Every year, American women have as many miscarriages as abortions. Even more women miscarriage early without knowing it. Why do your gods hate babies??

            Bwaha! Lolgfy

          • drowningpuppies says:

            In the United States, 44% of abortions are performed on black babies.

            No wonder Rimjob approves.

    Sunbelt Rentals best known for renting construction equipment just placed an order for 700 Ford Lightning EV pickups because no Americans want them, or something

    • Jl says:

      Several states and countrIes have banned the sale of gasoline powered vehicles after a certain date because Americans want EVs….
      Oh, wait…if the really wanted them we wouldn’t have to ban them.

      • .38 Police Special Elwood P. dOwd says:

        Several states and countries have banned sexual harassment because American men want women to be valued…

        Oh, wait… if American men really wanted women to be valued we wouldn’t have to ban sexual harassment.

        Several states and countries have banned voter suppression of minorities because white Americans want ALL Americans to vote…

        Oh, wait… if white Americans really wanted ALL Americans to vote we wouldn’t have to ban voter suppression.

        This is fun!!

        • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

          We don’t want all Americans to vote and if you do then you don’t value the vote. We want all Americans who qualify to vote and a system to stop those who either are not Americans or not qualified from voting or even worse in your case, voting more than once. Why is that such a hard concept for you to understand?

          The only time in our national history that voter laws have been systematically used to discriminate by race was when the Democrats used them to stop blacks in the South. Like poll taxes, literacy tests and all those Democrat policies directed at blacks. It was and still is the objective of all real patriots to insure the true vote of all legitimate citizens and keep out fraud and abuse the sort that stole the last presidential election.

          You do realize we all know when you start your lying don’t you? Imagining fantastic bullshit and projecting your own moral putridness won’t fly here dQwd. Go sell your shit to Vox.

          FJB, dQwd, and all his homo groomers.

    Its actually worse than that. On Oahu, some, if not most, of their electricity comes from diesel generators.
