So what does “climate justice” have to do with women’s rights and pussyhats?

I’ve never understood what “climate justice” is all about. I understand it even less now.

This happened in my town today:

Hundreds march in downtown Chico for women’s rights 

I could not help but notice this photo, and the elements within.

People holding signs and cheering speeches gathered Saturday in City Plaza for the third annual Chico Women’s March in Chico. (Kayla Fitzgerald — Enterprise-Record)

Me thinks they are a bit confused.

What do you think?

Yes, most people in Britain work hard all year to put a little money aside for a fortnight in Spain. The only way they get to see a bit of decent weather. Meanwhile lazy Spanish sit around all year in luxurious sunshine. This is most unjust.

30 deg. C is called “heat wave” in the UK. Climate must be changes so that everyone gets a fair amount of sunshine.

Milder winters must also be implemented because working households ( particularly in Scotland and northern England ) pay a large amount of their income simply to prevent them dying of cold in the winter. This is very unjust and hits the poorest hardest.

Global warming is not only good it is essential if we are to have climate justice !

I live in Ohio where it frequently his 30°C (86°F) in the Summer. I was in England last May. It was beautiful sunny spring and the temperatures got above 25°C (77°F). The locals mopped their brows and complained about how hot it was. I laughed at them, and told them that it was beautiful spring weather, and that I would tell them when it was hot.

Appropriately, it was VP Al Gore who encouraged the whole “climate justice” meme. The link below contains commentary on Environmental Justice by long-time activist Robert Bullard and a critic, David Friedman.

https://web.archive.org/web/20041124165112/http://www.d.umn.edu/~bmunson/Courses/Educ4234/ERacism-4234.pdf

David Friedman’s article from 1998 was entitled The “Environmental Racism” Hoax. He showed the origin of the policy and how it was used by the Clinton Administration in the person of Carol Browner, to force through environmental regulations: This is how he described it:

“Environmental justice” entered the activist playbook after a failed 1982 effort to block a hazardous-waste landfill in a predominantly black North Carolina county. One of the protesters was the District of Columbia’s congressional representative, who returned to Washington and prodded the General Accounting Office (GAO) to investigate whether noxious environmental risks were disproportionately sited in minority communities. A year later, the GAO said that they were. Superfund and similar toxic dumps, it appeared, were disproportionately located in non-white neighborhoods.”

“Few of the relevant studies were peer-reviewed; all made critical errors. Properly analyzed, the data revealed that waste sites are just as likely to be located in white neighborhoods, or in areas where minorities moved only after permits were granted.”

In 1992, a Democrat-controlled Congress ignored environmental justice legislation introduced by then-Senator Al Gore. Toxic racism made headlines, but not policy.

All of that changed with the Clinton-Gore victory. Vice President Gore got his former staffer Carol Browner appointed head of the EPA and brought Chavis, Bullard, and other activists into the transition government. The administration touted environmental justice as one of the symbols of its new approach.

In 1994, Bill Clinton issued an executive order, directing that every federal agency make environmental justice part of its mission.”

In 2004, the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation published a document called “Climate Change and the African American Community”: https://web.archive.org/web/20110910052827/http://www.nccecojustice.org/downloads/Climate%20of%20Change.pdf

One claim they made was:
“African Americans are less responsible for climate change than other Americans; historically and at present, African Americans emit less greenhouse gas.”

The same theme is now applied to developing countries in the efforts to garner £100 billion a year for the UN “Green Climate Fund” and compensation for our past “carbon” sins against them.

Climate Justice is a two part saga:

Part 1: we sign up to agreements to transfer our wealth to China and a bunch of under developed countries. We end up poor. They end up rich without having to get out of bed in the morning. They dictate terms to us. We become enslaved, ruled over by a quisling government made up of those who got us to transfer our wealth.

Part 2: The beneficiaries of our wealth squander it. Everyone ends up equally poor and wretched.

And there you have it. Climate Justice.

Pink pussy hats are so ‘last month’. They have to get with the times.

The reason: The sentiment that the pink pussyhat excludes and is offensive to transgender women and gender nonbinary people who don’t have typical female genitalia and to women of color because their genitals are more likely to be brown than pink. link

In the posted photo I see 2 signs on round cut-outs. Nearest says “climate justice” and the other (of a different color combination) says Chico 350.”
Can I assume the #350 refers to weepy Bill’s group? If so, someone should tell the person to re-calibrate.
Regarding shape and color: Is there a meaning in the ‘sun’ or ‘sunflower’ aspect?

Finally, is there an “app” that can remove everything in the image that is Carbon-based?

Some of those Women’s March signs read:
Climate Justice, Stop 45, Chico 350.

Nothing to do with women’s rights.
All clear signs of a derangement that pre-dates Donald Trump as 45th US President.

President Trump has just been their trigger to anxiety attacks.
And the socialist-Democrats play their “Chicken Little mind games” on these vulnerable mentally ill people.

The only way forward to not to hide the insanity, but to let sane middle America see what the Democratic Party has become — total insanity in the pursuit of power to take away liberties so far guaranteed by the US constitution. Those Bill of Rights liberties gone forever are no more than a 5-4 Supreme Court ruling away. It is why the Liberals have made Supreme Court justice confirmations so nasty the last 30 years. A progressive Supreme Court was their path to socialism in the US.

Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s recent lung cancer and lobectomy is just another major source of anxiety for that group in your photo Anthony. IMO, RBG will be in hospice care by this coming summer: two tumors on one lung are not a primary tumor, but simply evidence of a metastasis — a spreading malignancy that will claim her life within the year. The battle to replace her with Trump as President and 53 Republican votes in the US Senate will make last October’s Brett Kavanaugh circus-come-tragedy confirmation look mild.

John,
My Grandfather (my mother’s father), age 57, in Spring 1975 was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. He was a life-long smoker. He died in July 1975, age 58, almost the same age I am today (I turn 57 soon).

My Grandmother (my father’s mother), a life-long smoker, age 64 in 1980 suffered a mild heart attack. In the hospital recovery a lung x-ray revealed as small tumor on one lung lobe. She had a lobectomy at age 62. And she lived another 31 years. The difference was both age and catching the primary tumor before it spread (metastasized). In my Grandfather, his cancer had already metastasized to his lungs and internal organs. He was dead in less than 4 months.

I do not wish that on anyone. But life and death happens. We each need to be prepared for that.

Thing is, it’s not California per se, it’s the big cities. As is true in much of the West, the cities are mostly left-wing and the countryside around them is mostly right-wing; as is inevitable, because living in the country tends to require an actual connection to reality, which life in a modern city does not.

But LA and SF seceding will never happen, because the rural areas don’t need the cities, but the cities need the rural areas.

The best toaster I ever had was an old Sunbeam “Radiant Control”.
Just put the bread in and it would automatically lower it and then raise it when it was done.
Old toasters had a bi-metal arm with the contacts on the end that would bend as it got hot. When it bent enough it would break the electrical contacts. Most responded to the internal temperature of the toaster itself. (Some had a small element wrapped around the bi-metal.) This Sunbeam responded to the temperature of the surface of the bread. All I ever had to do to it was readjust it and replace the cord.
It was date stamped Nov 4, 1955. It finally died around 2013.
They make ’em like they used too.
It was silver with a black “Bakelite” base.
I never identified with it but I did like it a lot.

Big mistake giving women the right to vote…they are driven by emotions and not reason. That is why humanity is on a death march toward Marxism…

I will defer one one point and state:

We are not Humans without our emotions.
Our emotions can help us stop another Nazi-style genocide on an entire population. We must.

But also our emotions are what leads to the genocide to begin with. The hatred of another group is also emotions. What Women’s March has strayed from IMO is Gentle Compassion. That compassion you find in the truly humble priest/pastor when you are looking for the Grace of God.

Those Women in Anthony’s photo are not full of compassion. They are filled with a hatred. A hatred fueled by a progressive Democratic Party messaging that they consume now like bread. The Party of Nancy Pelosi and Chucky Schumer – The Party of Hate and Envy – today’s Democrats.

Women and free blacks could vote in New Jersey from 1776 – 1807. This according to Smithsonian, which initially claimed it was Republicans who changed the law. They now have a disclaimer at the bottom of the page, but for ignorant Democrat partisans the misrepresentation probably stuck. There was no Republican party in 1807.

Me thinks they doth protest too much, and they don’t even know what they are actually protesting about anymore. We should realize that most of these people are just kids and young adults and still wet behind the ears. Every generation needs to protest something, but at least my generation from the 1960’s protested the Vietnam war and later in the early 1970’s, nuclear testing in Amchitca and the South Pacific. Whether you agree or disagree with the Vietnam war, an/or some of the seeds of the early environmental movement, at the time, those were legitimate protests. By a demographic bulge of kids known as the baby boomers. While I was on the front lines of the creation of Greenpeace in the early 1970’s in Western Canada, I am ashamed of what it has morphed into and that I had anything to do with the creation of that group that is now the definition of the Global Green Blob.

But I must confess that things looked different to me then. When I saw overhead power lines with dozens of wires all connecting to various poles, transformers and houses/business, it all looked like mass confusion and chaos to me. But now it looks like art and I am amazed that we have created such a complex and technological society that actually works. (Unless I am in SE Asia and then it is all chaos, but somehow it works most of the time)

And now to think there are many mostly younger people and groups wanting to tear down this highly advanced form of technological advancement and use the phoney climate change meme as a wedge to limit the useage of affordable energy or implement failed socialistic/Marxist wealth redistribution schemes on those of us and our ancestors who created this miracle. I would say we are now near the cross roads of an ideological war that is liable to break out as soon as the abuse of this political process goes to far. Just witness what is emerging in Europe with a return to right wing populist politics, because that is what happens when you get failed policies from the Left that fundamentally alter a country so quickly for the worse, that the only solution is a hard turn to Starboard. Pelosi, Macron and Trudeau should take note, amongst many others.

That’s true. Protest is simply performance art. A clear demonstration of this is the group’s mindless popularization of the hijab, which is arguably the quintessential emblem of misogyny. Women worldwide are punished and even killed for refusing to wear it, and these stupid women celebrate it as a symbol of women’s rights.

The whole human rights thing has formally been removed from the Paris rulebook so you can protest all you like there is no framework for it.

The issue goes back to the socialist left who wanted the idea that just because you were alive and breathing you had some right to a percentage of the worlds resources. The province of Ontario in Canada and Finland flirted with this stupidity and the concept of a living wage … it all failed spectacularly because guess what if you pay people to do nothing they will do nothing
https://www.pbs.org/newshour/economy/making-sense/ontario-is-canceling-its-basic-income-experiment
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basic_income_around_the_world

The reality is socialism is morally corrupt even if taken to it’s purest form it encapsulates the concept of force. The person giving up resources does not receive anything they are forced to give it up. The system always breaks down because there is no incentive to be better as you don’t get any advantage just being alive gives you the same rights as anyone, so why not stay home and play computer games all day.

Capitalism have micro transactions that benefit both parties, if it didn’t benefit both parties the transaction would not happen. The only real weakness in the system is what resources you start with matters you have to have something to transact. No one has come up with a way to easily deal with that problem but what is clear is socialism is not a viable alternative it has failed in every country. Even poster child countries for socialism like the Nordic countries only survive by quirks that they have low populations living on huge natural resources or are held up by US defense money. If resources were evenly distributed to each person of the world the Nordic countries would fail immediately just based on their debt to the people of China.

While I realise that “Climate Justice ” is just a word meaning Socialism come Communism, I always thought that Climate was a 30 year thing and weather was the now thing.

So will these somewhat misguided persons be prepared top wait 30 years for their version of Paradise ? Perhaps its my near 92 years of age, but I look back to when we left school at 14, having by then learned all the essentials which seem to be lacking today. We got home after work tired and on our small salaries , not able to “Live it up”. By the time we got to voting age, back then it was 21, we had learned that if you want something you both worked for it, and saved until you could afford it, like my at 12 being on a paper round every morning before school and a grocery round via a three wheeler bike on Saturday. When I could finally afford the second hand telescope I wanted I valued it far more than all the things bought since then. .

Irrational behavior correlates well with the confounding of ‘climate justice’ and ‘women’s rights’.

Kurt
January 19, 2019 10:35 pm

Every single qualifier that a leftist puts on the term “justice” (social justice, racial justice, environmental justice . . . take your pick) is used as an Orwellian argument that subjugates fairness towards a real individual person to some hypothesized higher social imperative that the leftists thinks is more important than real justice. In other words, it’s just an oxymoronic phrase used to rationalize a wrong to an individual.

That’s what the phrase “climate justice” has in common with womens’ rights (the purported rights of a predefined collective).

Brent Hargreaves
January 19, 2019 11:27 pm

On my first visit to Parliament in London for last week’s historic events I was struck by a fundamentally different approach between Left and Right. Labour MPs were in the main very emotional about their constituents and wanted ‘more’ public money to address their plight. Conservative MPs often used factual arguments and quantified data in support of the government’s successful programs and allotted roughly equal attention to the grand themes of education, defence, economy, transport, foreign affairs, security.

‘Climate justice’ is a mythical notion and is bandied about by irrational people for whom feelings come before facts; in short, by Lefties.

How ironic that Lefties only use their right-brains!

Climate justice is just a SJW euphemism for deconstructing the industrialized West. Sarah Myrhe is into this and thinks it can only happen when only women are in charge. She broached this subject with Richard Dawkins when she found herself seated next to him at a dinner during a week long conference in Chile, and then he proceeded to ignore her for the rest of the evening.

So. I may have been seated next to Richard Dawkins at dinner. And I may have used the words feminist leadership. And he may have turned away from me and ignored me for the rest of the evening.

She then she became Dating Cop and indignantly asked what right he had to date someone young enough to be his granddaughter. What business is it of hers who he dates? Notice the “burn it down” comment. That’s all these people have to offer.

One more thing, while I am at it. Why is Richard Dawkins dating a woman who looks like his granddaughter? The man is in his late seventies. For real. I am done here. It’s an absolute joke. Burn it down to the ground.

The hypocrisy of those who practice identity politics is to appoint themselves as moral authorities, and then accuse those who disagree with them of deputizing themselves as moral authorities. Clue to the clueless: moral authority belongs to those who do to others as they would have others do to themselves. All other moralizing is hypocrisy.

Of course none of those things are civil rights and thus guaranteed to a citizen. At best, some may argue that those things are compassionate and maybe morally appropriate entitlements but they sure ain’t something you are guaranteed just ’cause you were born on this planet!

What is Climate Justice?

Quote:
“…Climate justice includes a focus on the root causes of climate change and making the systemic changes that are therefore required, a commitment to address the disproportionate burden of the climate crisis on the poor and marginalized, a demand for participatory democracy in changing these systems which require dismantling the fossil fuel corporate power structure, and a commitment to reparations and thus a fair distribution of the world’s wealth….”

http://www.peacefuluprising.org/defining-climate-justice-20130521.

Translation: Climate justice is the use of climate alarmism to invoke a revolution that overthrows the capitalist system and replaces it with a Marxist-Socialist one. The new society will be green Utopian in nature and will be free of those nasty fossil fuels and will be powered by the sun and the wind and bio-fuels. Everyone (except those of us in charge) will be equal (equally poor) after the capitalist system is terminated and everyone has been blessed with the new glorious ecological Marxist socialist state. The Marxist-socialist state will control all wealth distribution in accordance with climate-friendly and eco-friendly criteria. Everyone will be free to participate in this new state unless of course you question the climate alarmist narrative or the new Marxist-Socialist state itself. In the latter case, you may have to be subject to disciplinary action.

That Anthony is just one definition of Climate Justice that I found. There are probably others. Marxism by any other name is still Marxism. BTW, what does the yellow “Stop 45” sign mean?

I do not trust my ability to judge the value of what these women are doing.
I did not understand the women’s movement when they were burning their bras and otherwise yelling about their rights. On the other hand, I seem to have benefited from all those crazies.
In the 70s, at a particular aircraft company, I was not hired as an engineer, probably partially because I am female. By 1980 the company had been “encouraged” to hire women as something other than secretary, and I was one of the first.
Later, I spent 25 years working as an engineer in the auto industry.
During the GM bankruptcy layoffs, as women were retiring, I heard many stories about their experiences before GM changed its policies toward women.
So, I don’t know how my granddaughters may benefit. Maybe I don’t see something good that is coming.

January 20, 2019 11:35 am

Climate justice has nothing to do with women’s rights. Any claim to the contrary is probably based on a perverted metaphor that compares women to the female characterization of Earth as “mother Earth”, and, further, based on a perverted metaphor that compares oil drilling to rape.

If “justice” means “the quality of being fair and reasonable”, then I would say that injustice to climate is being committed by so called “climate scientists”, who are anything but fair and reasonable, where actual science is concerned. A further injustice to climate is being committed by these very women who parasitize the word, “climate”, with their perversions.
