Sierra Club: “We’ll never stop climate change without ending white supremacy”

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

h/t CFACT – in the wake of harsh accusations of greedy corporate collaboration in “Planet of the Humans“, the Sierra club appears to be attempting to reinvent itself as a racial justice movement.

Racism Is Killing the Planet 

The ideology of white supremacy leads the way toward disposable people and a disposable natural world 


During the street protests and marches of the past two weeks, many people carried signs that read “Racism Is Killing Us.” It’s no exaggeration to say that racism and white supremacy harm all of us, because in addition to robbing us of our humanity, racism is also killing the planet we all share.

An idea—a long-overdue realization—is growing in the environmental movement. It goes something like this: “We’ll never stop climate change without ending white supremacy.” This argument has entered the outdoor recreation and conservation space thanks to the leadership of Black, Indigenous, and other people of color in the climate justice movement. The idea has taken on new force as folks in the mainstream environmental movement do our best to show up for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and all the Black people still living and subject to police violence.

I know that a lot of people are struggling with the thought that addressing the environmental crises must involve dismantling white supremacy. At Sierra Club meetings, some people hear me say something like that and think, “Damn, fighting climate change wasn’t hard enough already? Now we have to end racism and white supremacy too? Seriously, man?”

I get that feeling of being overwhelmed. It’s a lot to carry. It’s a lot to hold. We all have enough to do without feeling like we’re taking on even more.

But I want to share another lens from which we can view this moment. I really believe in my heart of hearts—after a lifetime of thinking and talking about these issues—that we will never survive the climate crisis without ending white supremacy. 

Here’s why: You can’t have climate change without sacrifice zones, and you can’t have sacrifice zones without disposable people, and you can’t have disposable people without racism.

Do not underestimate the author, Sierra Club Strategic Partnership Director Hop Hopkins.

Most greens are not very self aware. They usually leave a juicy picture somewhere of themselves doing something stupid or wildly hypocritical, like protesting against fossil fuel while wearing a petroleum plastic jacket.

Hop is different. He is not someone who overlooks small details.

Hop would have everyone in the West living dirt-poor lives while India, China, Africa and South America use fossil fuels to pull themselves out of poverty.

I wish guys like Hop had some clue about what it takes to make an industrial civilisation work.

Or maybe he does, but makes more money writing about racism and climate change than he would doing something else.

It’s no exaggeration to say that racism and white supremacy harm all of us, because in addition to robbing us of our humanity, racism (and white supremacy) is also killing the planet we all share.

I wonder if the Sierra Club and/or Hop Hopkins knows of any countries around the world that have a booming economy, are self-supporting, great infrastructure, healthcare, educational services, etc. …… that ARE NOT controlled/governed by …… white supremacy “thinkers n’ doers”?

He stood over six foot tall and played high school football so he was probably pretty strong and tough. Not the kind of guy you’d want to get into a fight with. He was a career criminal with several previous convictions and five years in prison for armed robbery in a home invasion. And he had drugs in his system when he died resisting arrest.

But I believe everything the mainstream press tells me and they tell me that he was just a poor victim of white racism and a “gentle giant” who was a role model for his community. Meanwhile the policeman, who was doing his job, is in jail on a million dollar bond. And will probably spend the rest of life in prison as a political prisoner for an involuntary man slaughter charge.

George Floyd’s death. Climate change alarmism. Wind and solar energy. Etcetera, etc…

The more I see relevant science, facts and data in these and other issues being either selectively cherry-picked or suppressed and omitted in politics, the MSM and elsewhere, the more I feel like I’m living in Oceania in George Orwell’s “Nineteen-Eighty-Four.”

This characteristic behavior is exactly what we see in oppressive states where the authorities in charge intend to control and manipulate the dissemination of information to ensure it serves their purposes (power, money and control). The individual doesn’t need to do any thinking, because those who control the dissemination of information are doing it for you. All the people need to do is listen and believe, and they probably do so more often that they should.

Having an incomplete or manipulated picture or view of the issues can often be a product of propagandizing, and seeing it happening in what is supposed to be a free, open and democratic society is disturbing to say the least. This not to say that those responsible for death of George Floyd should not be prosecuted–they obviously need to be. His death was a tragic thing. But if the information on his criminal past and the reason for his arrest are correct, the manner in which he is being characterized in light of his death is another story entirely. If Floyd were a law abiding citizen, might he not still be alive today? Is there not something to be said for being law-abiding?

The amount of residual racism that is still out there obviously must be dealt with and fought. The problem here is the manner in which it is being done. To whatever extent the First Amendment and freedom of thought are coming under threat in the USA today (you can’t say All Lives Matter anymore), it is quite disturbing to suspect that the greed for money, power and control is behind it all.

Love Big Brother.

I have my doubts about Chauvin being convicted, or rather, I suspect he’ll be found guilty of lesser charges. Official Coroners report found no evidence of asphyxiation, so no excessive force was used.

I understand Floyd had a LOT of Fentanyl in his system and was suffering from COVID 19. Too many mitigating circumstances to achieve a straight conviction.

HotScot – Despite what I hear in the news, it looks to me like prosecuting Chauvin is going to be difficult. I wouldn’t want to be the prosecutor in the case.

Just my opinion, but even a second degree murder charge looks like a stretch. At best they might be able to make an involuntary manslaughter charge stick. But I’m not sure that after passions have cooled that a jury would even buy that. He was a trained policeman in the employ of the city of Minneapolis arresting for cause a dangerous and resisting suspect and using a choke hold permitted by the police. Be a hard case to prosecute.

Of course if he is found not guilty we can expect a second round of recreational rioting.

The whole idea of white priviledge, which is basically saying that white people are more educated, thinking, and practical, has been upgraded to white supremacy. This was a purposeful upgrade to link educated people to the basic, imagined skinhead radical—very typical liberal strategy of assigning labels—nothing behind the label at all. And you can be black and educated and thinking, so they are in this group as well.

What they are really opposed to is anybody who thinks rationally and does not do what they are told ,because they are not misinformed or ignorant of what is going on and often cognizant of the liberals’ goals.

They have to get rid of the educated and practical thinkers who know that what the GND and other agendas seek to do are bad for everybody and the world.

Personally I am extremely offended by the claim that all my success in life is due to the color of my skin; not merit, hard work, or sacrifices I have made. Bullsh*t. Anybody that can’t see how racist the entire idea of “white privilege” is, must either be very ignorant or intentionally deceptive. The same goes for “white supremacy”.

It is interesting to note that the cities with the biggest “race problems” are those that have been run by the left for decades. All the problems they have today are the end result of the policies they have enacted. It’s no wonder they want to blame someone else, but if there is systemic racism in those city and state governments, the failure to wipe it out can be laid squarely at the feet of the Democrat party (and their enablers in the media). For example, Minneapolis has a mayor that wishes he was black, a black police chief, a city council with a black (woman) president and at least four other minority members, in a state with a black Attorney General. And they are all Democrats.

Great post, Paul Penrose, my thoughts exactly.

Paul P: “It is interesting to note that the cities with the biggest “race problems” are those that have been run by the left for decades. All the problems they have today are the end result of the policies they have enacted.

“Yup”, and those policies were first enacted when Democrat POTUS LBJ signed the “Great Society Legislation” into Law.

The Great Society was an ambitious series of policy initiatives, legislation and programs spearheaded by President Lyndon B. Johnson with the main goals of ending poverty, reducing crime, abolishing inequality and improving the environment. In May 1964

Black America was far better off before the Democrats started making their lives subservient to the whims of the Democrat Party.

The Appalachian Regional Commission is still spending BILLIONS each year and poverty is still running rampant, to wit:

In 1963 President Kennedy formed the President’s Appalachian Regional Commission to assist in advancing legislation to bring federal dollars to Appalachia. This legislation, the Appalachian Redevelopment Act, was enacted by Congress in 1965, creating the ARC as a federal agency.[10] It was signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson on March 9, 1965.[12]

On White Supremacy and Victim Culture

History is full of horrific stories of persecution against almost every race and culture on the planet – including Europeans, Hispanics, Africans and Asians. We are all the fortunate survivors of many holocausts.

There is no virtue in claiming to be a cultural victim in America – almost everyone else in the world is worse off than we are. There is no credibility in choosing one specific group and saying they suffered more than others.

Blacks in America are ‘way better off than blacks in Africa. Same for whites, Asians and all.

Screw the victim culture – it sucks!

I say it’s time we just get along. 🙂

I agree Allan, horrific personal pain and life experience knows no particular colour, just as no particular colour is devoid of joy.

The brains of leftists are hard-wired to believe any falsehood that fits their anti-American, anti-human narrative. No rational person could believe that Antifa is benevolent or positive, but many leftists do. No rational person could believe that burning down poor neighborhoods in USA cities is beneficial, but leftists do. Leftists believe that USA police are unusually violent, when the evidence clearly shows the contrary.

Leftists are highly irrational. All too often, leftists are being programmed by false propaganda from domestic and foreign Marxist sources. Leftists are simply far too stupid to do rational analysis and make rational decisions – they are easily led by emotional rather than logical arguments. Leftists are at best intensely childish; more likely they are clinically insane.

The real goals of the Climate Cult is frighteningly detailed in a short book, the review of which is here:

An excerpt:
“Hitler famously said that he had planted the seed and no one could now predict how and when it would grow back again.

Environmentalism is that Hitlerian seed, sprouted and flourishing, and which is now so eagerly being nurtured to maturity by people who naively believe that they are doing the right thing. And once the process of evil is locked into place, its mechanisms always follow through to their bitter end. Such is the dire warning of this timely book.”

June 10, 2020 8:45 am

Leftists are not deep thinkers. They actually believe that the label defines the product.
AntiFa claims to be anti-fascist. Every one knows that fascists are bad people.
Therefore anyone who is anti-fascist must be a good person.

Don’t actually check what these “good” people are doing. That takes judgement, and every good leftist knows that being judgmental is bad.

What exactly qualifies as white supremacy these days? Consider the concept of microaggressions. Apparently if you say to a Black person, you speak well, this is implicitly racist, as you are expressing surprise that the Black person can speak well. That strikes me as dangerously thin-skinned, since the microaggressive white person is obviously trying to be friendly, and the Black microaggressee is rudely spurning the friendly compliment. I don’t see how it is ever going to be possible to close the racial divide if there is so much Black anger that they will turn on nice white people who are trying to make friends.

Now George Floyd is being extolled as a great martyr to the cause of racial equality, as if he were Martin Luther King Jr. or Medgar Evers. Let us be very clear that Mr. Floyd was cruelly tortured and then killed by Derek Chauvin, and this will almost certainly be found in law to have been a murder, but George Floyd was high on fentanyl and trying to pass counterfeit money when he was arrested. It’s not as if he were Rosa Parks.

Then there is nagging problem of Asian American successes in education and American society in general. White supremacy doesn’t seem to have slowed them down to any noticeable degree, which leads to the awkward thought that race-based outcomes are based, at least in part, on race-based behaviors.

No torture!

[Floyd] could be heard pleading that he couldn’t breathe.
If he couldn’t breathe, he COULD NOT HAVE TALKED!!

Why is this so hard for people to understand?? Also, Officer Chauvin’s knee was on top of Floyd’s TRAPEZIUS muscle, which has nothing to do with breathing! Reach back and place your hand on your shoulder blade and feel the muscle there: THAT’S THE TRAPEZIUS MUSCLE! It stretches across your back to both arms and up your neck It is generally used when we lift a heavy load, such as a bucket of water! Anatomically, it holds our arms in place and allows us to lift our shoulders! Being one of the strongest muscles in the body, Officer Chauvin could have placed his entire body weight on top of Floyd and not injured him in any way! Ask a tackled football player how strong that muscle is!!

Floyd died from cardiac arrest compounded by having fentanyl, meth and other drugs in his system! The ME report notes he had 4X a lethal dose of fentanyl!!! Floyd was literally a dead man walking!!!!

Here is Floyd’s ME report, describing his fatal heart problems and drug load. Read it yourself

I just assumed that the guy was expressing difficulty in breathing. If you are short of breath, you don’t try to say “Excuse me, but I seem to be having some difficulty in breathing, would you be so kind as to remove your knee from my neck?” So really, let’s just stop this who meme right now. I think it’s very possible that his existing medical conditions and drug use contributed to his death, but Chauvin, at the minimum, showed reckless disregard for the life and safety of Mr. Floyd and is at least guilty of aggravated manslaughter. If it turns out he had a personal animus for the decedent, then murder charges may be appropriate. But neither of these men were a martyr or a saint; they should both be treated as pariahs in their respective communities.

None of us were there (does that really need to be said?), but it seems likely he resisted, given he was seen sitting on the sidewalk at time of arrest, then at some point being aggressively restrained.

How many times does this need to be explained? Apparently quite a few (shrug).

I don’t dispute that he probably had a heart attack. But neither you or I really know what brought it on; usually there are multiple contributing factors. Perhaps the fact that the blood flow on one side of his neck was restricted was one of those factors. That is entirely plausible and all your denials won’t change that. Also Chauvin did not recognize that Floyd was in cardiac arrest. The signs are obvious and LEOs are trained to look for them, but he wasn’t watching. He was negligent and a man died in his custody. How many times does that need to be explained?

Many studies have shown that black immigrants and their children are more successful, academically and financially, than other blacks. The differential is now being blamed on the psychological impact of systemic, subtle discrimination (as opposed to verifiable, actual discrimination, like access to loans, housing, and jobs).

Will society ever mature to the point of discussing the true causes – a culture that shows no appreciation of education, no personal responsibility of fathers toward their children, and the glorification of drugs, violence, and disrespect of others?

It doesn’t help that one political party relies on the votes of blacks who depend on government support.

“What exactly qualifies as white supremacy these days?”

It seems like the race-baiters on the Left want to falsely accuse every white person of being a white supremacist. When they kneel at the playing of the U.S. National Anthem, they are saying all white people are racist.

That’s what the radical Left want Black People to believe, that all white people are racist and black people should not trust them. That way the race-baiters think they can stay in power. It’s worked in the past, and they are hoping it will work this time, too.

The Radical Democrats don’t have much else to offer other than fear and hatred and division with the aim of looking like the savior of the oppressed, when in reality they are the ones who are actually oppressing them by lying to them and making them think every white person hates them and then letting their neigborhoods go to Hell. They are the problem, not the police.

Racial Division is where the radical Democrats want to take the nation. It’s standard operating procedure for these dispicable people on the Left. They have been race-baiting and lying about the situation for years and they are still lying about it.

A lot of people don’t take too kindly to being falsely accused of being a racist just because of their skin color. If the radical Left wants to push this line (and they do), then they can expect pushback from those being lied about.

The Radical Left ruins everything it touches, and if the football players kneel during the National Anthem, then the Left will have successfully ruined Professional Football, and College Football, too, because no college player, or pro player for that matter, is going to stand when everyone else is kneeling, so it’s a certainty if they get it started that it will infect every football team. And anger every person who loves and knows the Truth.

And this will be the death of football. The audience dropped quite a bit over Colin Kaepernik spitting on the National Anthem and the American Flag with his kneeling. Expect a much bigger drop in audience if you use the National Football League to brand all white people as racists.

Maybe a big enough drop that Pro Football can’t afford to continue to operate. Wouldn’t that be a shame.

I see where the American Soccer League has just authorized their players to take a knee at the next game, and I’m sure the National Football League will be following suit.

I’m going to miss football. It’s demise may be inevitable anyway, if there wasn’t any kneeling, the obnoxious celebrations that take place on the field after every play might end up doing the same thing. I certainly don’t appreciate people acting like clowns on the football field. It is very off-putting to me.

The players have gotten into the habit of going into wild gyrations for making a tackle or catching a pass. Something they are expected routinely to do. That’s why they get paid. Comeon guys, act like you’ve been there before. Now we get the whole team going through ridiculous antics when a touchdown is scored. It’s kind of pathetic. These guys need lots of attention apparently.

Well, I guess I won’t have to suffer through their antics in the future because I won’t be watching them anymore.

Sierra C is no longer a non taxable charitable org by any reasonable definition. It is a racist organization to boot. Come on Donald, I know you are busy but its time to push back. India took on Greenpeace barring them from brining in funds to India because they are interfering in the nation’s security and development policies (clever because they knew not a lot of money could be extracted locally). A review of the big ‘charitable’ foundations is long overdue.

June 9, 2020 7:10 pm

White doesn’t mean white to Greenpeace and other radical groups. White means anyone of any race, creed, nationality, color, sex, or sexual preference who embraces capitalism, free markets, limited government and American traditional culture and values. By definition these beliefs are irredeemably evil and anyone who aligns with them is “white” in spirit and thus equally guilty of “white crimes”. Under this definition only “whites” can be racists.

John, you stopped your thought thread too soon. Evidently all crimes are now white, so the likes of the Chicago police can be harmlessly disbanded since those 23 black murders there over the past couple of weekends don’t need no stinkin’ European-inspired prosecutions of mostly black executioners, and any formerly convicted for doing the same must also be released from imprisonment forthwith. Thus a great number of black lives appear to matter rather less than they are so prominently proclaimed to. But I guess people can be sold just about anything these days on a slogan.

On the other hand, as others point out above, Mr. Hopkins could have contented himself with the supremacy of his own insight that “We’ll never stop climate change . .” He so nearly stumbled over a truth there that the shock of it forced him to throw in a self-skewering racist irrelevancy. In any case, plainly Hoppy not happy. But I suspect he is bright enough not to be fooled by all that steel, aluminum, petroleum resin, and necessary mineral mining that goes into operation of an electric vehicle that also consumes fossil fuel originated electricity in transit. So I feel sure that Hop is going to lead the way by hand building his own mud hut to eschew all those European sourced conveniences he just hates himself over. Most revealing. Lead on, Hop!

By the way, while I’ve never been attracted to hanging out with low-lifes as such, I must say that in nearly eight decades of living on both U.S. coasts I cannot myself cite an occasion of a personal acquaintance voicing an expression of overall racial supremacy. And I think that very few these days realize that the vast majority in the deep south during plantation slavery days even lacked anything like the resources to own plantations or slaves, while not a few were in indentured servitude themselves. So there’s a lot of broad brush denigration desperately enlisted in shifting attention away from various consequences of latter day self-victimization wherein half of African-Americans conceived this year will be aborted and over 70% of the survivors raised with a 5 fold greater likelihood of poverty in the absence of their own father. These could easily be seen as baby steps to NOT mattering, as pointed out when they were but a fraction of their current devastating proportions half a century ago by Democrat Daniel Patrick Moynihan (who would later be a U.S. senator from NY state) who was told by black ‘leadership’ to shut up about it because what could possibly go wrong with that jive(?).

In any case our President could quickly nip this reactive asserted racial exclusivity in the bud (not to mention likely assure his re-election demographically) with the simple pointed observation that ‘Hispanic lives matter too’. If he has no such sentient adviser, the nonsense will continue to unfold.

White Supremacy is a prejudicial subjectivist narrative invented by academic second-raters who have taken over all of the Humanities and Sociology Departments. They’ve made it into a self-promotional industry and are advocating systematic racism.

It’s been adopted by the extremely liberal academic management hierarchy as a route to their righteousness mud-wallow and as a sop to the moral swamp of their progressivist guilt.

Half the academic student body has been weaned on it. It has successfully permeated the physical science departments. Case in point StutDownSTEM.

Also, what can us little darkies do to save the planet since it is not possible for us to give up the white supremacy that is not possible for us to have?

The assumption by the Sierra Club that only whites can save the planet is itself racist.

And then we have to figure in all the mixed-race people, like Barack Obama, who is half white. Does this equate to Obama only being half of a white supremacist? Does he only practice his White Supremacy half the time?

I, personally, am about 80 percent caucasion (Irish), and about 10 percent Cherokee Indian, and about 10 percent God Knows what.

So how do I prorate my white supremacy index? Can I claim to be only 80 percent white supremacist? Will that stand me in good stead with the Radical Race-baiting Democrats?

I saw an estimate of the number of white people in the U.S. the other day which was given as 76 percent white. I don’t think that number is correct, it’s more like 65 percent.

But of the 35 percent who are not 100 percent white, a large percentage of them have some caucasion blood in them, so the Radical Democrats might be smearing a lot of people with their “White Supremacy” tag.

The irony is that it is these racist greenies who, without any conception of poverty, have put people into poverty and/or made more people much poorer with their sky high energy prices which have made heating, cooling, driving etc. a luxury commodity for them and that’s in the First world.
That not being enough for them, they have persisted in denying the third world of 24/7 cheap, reliable electricity and a grid to deliver it to peoples homes, schools, work places and even hospitals. While doing that, they want the very poor to not use GMOs or pesticides for their crops resulting in lower food production and less nutritious food choices. These are people who face famine with a poor season.
They don’t even want Vitamin D fortified rice to prevent blindness in black children in Africa and God help them if they want to use DDT to prevent malaria.
They have their nerve calling any white person a supremacist or racist when those people, evil though they may have been, have done far less damage to and killed and/or sickened and maimed far fewer black and brown people here and abroad in the past several centuries than than they have done to them in the last 20 years.
Personally, after they bankrupt and destroy the West with their idiotic Marxist schemes, given their behavior thus far, I don’t see black and brown people ever benefiting from their transfer of wealth schemes. Rather, I see enormous bank accounts for the few, the “special” and the privileged, regardless of color, in Switzerland and the Cayman’s.

The Sierra Club has been an all-white, arguably racist organization since its founding. John Muir set the tone by denigrating Native Americans in his many journals.

Muir’s vision, and that of the Sierra Club, is that America was once a pristine wilderness unspoiled by humankind. Restoration of the untouched, virgin wilderness has long been their goal.

What Muir and the Sierra Club have failed to realize is that for the last 12,000+ years this continent has been home to humans who altered, manipulated, tended, and used the landscapes. Historical human impact on the environment has been extensive, significant, and perpetual.

Their vision is rooted in Victorian puritanism that has always been intrinsically and fundamentally racist. If any group has championed “white supremacy” it is the Sierra Club.

As recently as 2016 their leadership and membership have been nearly 100% white. It was then that they instituted a “diversity” program for appearance’s sake. It is a fraud and facade; they haven’t changed.

This latest attempt to jump on the diversity bandwagon is also fake and extreme pandering. Their racist roots make them typical Leftists, and the Neo-Anarchy wing has no affection or allegiance to the Sierra Club or any other so-called environmental organization.

Climate alarmists like the Sierra Club are racist. Their treatment of 3rd world nations as children is abusive. They make much of victimhood while victimizing indigenous people on all continents. They ruthlessly “save” land and animals from people who have lived in harmony with the land and animals since time immemorial, robbing their birthrights, liberties, economies, and very lives.

False flag waving, cynical posturing, and me-to-ism, are desperate attempts to gain traction with the Movement of the Moment. The Sierra Club is being rejected by their radical comrades and purged. Good riddance.

White Supremacy Ideology is a fringe movement that no mainstream conservative buys into. About the only White Supremacist I can name is David Duke. I bet that is the case with most white people.

White Supremacy has no large following in the United States. And since that is the actual case, the Radical Left wants to claim that *all* white people are inherently White Supremacists. That way they can make the Black Community feel like they are really under seige from the entire population of white people.

3 Jun: World Economic Forum: The Great Reset: A Unique Twin Summit to Begin 2021
by Adrian Monck, Public Engagement
•“The Great Reset” will be the theme of a unique twin summit in January 2021, convened by the World Economic Forum.
•It requires a new social contract centred on human dignity, social justice and where societal progress does not fall behind economic development.
•The global health crisis has laid bare longstanding ruptures in our economies and societies, and created a social crisis that urgently requires decent, meaningful jobs…
•The twin summit will be both in-person and virtual, connecting key global governmental and business leaders in Davos with a global multistakeholder network in 400 cities around the world for a forward-oriented dialogue driven by the younger generation.
•The announcement of the Great Reset is made by HRH The Prince of Wales and Klaus Schwab during a virtual meeting today at 14:30 Central European Summer Time and can be followed here…

“We only have one planet and we know that climate change could be the next global disaster with even more dramatic consequences for humankind. We have to decarbonize the economy in the short window still remaining and bring our thinking and behaviour once more into harmony with nature,” said Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum…
“Now is the historical moment to shape the system for the post-corona era,” says Klaus Schwab in his opening remarks…

“The Great Reset is a welcome recognition that this human tragedy must be a wake-up call. We must build more equal, inclusive and sustainable economies and societies that are more resilient in the face of pandemics, climate change and the many other global changes we face,” said António Guterres, Secretary-General, United Nations, New York…

“A Great Reset is necessary to build a new social contract that honours the dignity of every human being,” added Schwab “The global health crisis has laid bare the unsustainability of our old system in terms of social cohesion, the lack of equal opportunities and inclusiveness. Nor can we turn our backs on the evils of racism and discrimination. We need to build into this new social contract our intergenerational responsibility to ensure that we live up to the expectations of young people.”
“COVID-19 has accelerated our transition into the age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution”…

To do so, the World Economic Forum will draw on thousands of young people in more than 400 cities around the world (the Global Shapers Community) who will be interconnected with a powerful virtual hub network to interact with the leaders in Davos…
The announcement of the Great Reset was made by HRH The Prince of Wales and Professor Schwab during a virtual meeting, followed by statements by UN Secretary-General António Guterres and IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva.
Their statements were supported by voices from all stakeholder groups of global society, including…
Ajay S. Banga, Chief Executive Officer, Mastercard, USA; Ma Jun, Chairman, Green Finance Committee, China Society for Finance and Banking, and a Member of the Monetary Policy Committee of the People’s Bank of China; Bradford L. Smith, President, Microsoft, USA; Nick Stern, Chair, Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, United Kingdom ETC ETC…

1 Apr: Inside Climate News: COP’s Postponement Until 2021 Gives World Leaders Time to Respond to U.S. Election
The annual United Nations climate meeting in Glasgow had been scheduled for six days after the presidential contest in early November
By Georgina Gustin
President Donald Trump announced shortly after taking office that he would withdraw the United States from the Paris agreement, but under the agreement, the earliest possible withdrawal date is Nov. 4, four years after the agreement took effect in the United States—and a day after the upcoming presidential election.

The meeting in Glasgow had been scheduled for six days after the election. That would have given leaders little time to respond to either another Trump administration—and the full withdrawal of the United States from the pact—or a new, incoming Democratic administration, which, under the agreement’s rules, could restore and revamp U.S. commitments as soon as February 2021…

“With this scenario at least you have clarity on who the president is well before the meeting,” Meyer said. “And in a Trump scenario, they would have more than six days to think through the implications of four more years of Trump and figure out their response. It provides a little more breathing space.”
If Trump is reelected, China and the European Union, the first and third-largest greenhouse gas emitters, could make a joint commitment under the agreement…

Updated 29 May: Carbon Pulse: UN accepts UK proposal to host COP26 in Nov. 2021
By Matt Lithgow
Governments have agreed to move the COP26 UN climate summit to Nov. 2021 as environmental groups urged the UK hosts and other nations to use the extra time to enhance their climate action plans and to ‘green’ their post-coronavirus recovery efforts.
The decision taken by the UNFCCC’s COP Bureau, Italian ‘pre-COP’ hosts, and the British government at a virtual meeting late Thursday will see the Glasgow conference take place over Nov. 1-12, almost a full year later than the original dates that were pushed back last month.
“With Italy, we can harness the G7 and G20 presidencies to drive climate action and support a clean resilient recovery,” the UK’s COP26 envoy John Murton tweeted, alluding to the fact that the two nations will also host those major conferences among the world’s economic powerhouses next year…

The original timing of the conference this November was billed as a critical point for countries to ramp up their GHG reduction commitments ahead of the Paris Agreement’s 2021 start.
So far, only 10 countries representing 2.9% of global emissions have submitted updated Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) in line with the climate pact’s five-year cycles, according to the think-tank WRI’s Climate Watch platform.

The postponement also means nations will have to endure more delays in agreeing international emissions trading rules under the treaty’s market-based Article 6.
After two straight years of failing to do so at the Katowice and Madrid COPs, experts have viewed the Glasgow summit as the “last chance” to forge an agreement on Paris-era carbon trading…

“By the time we get to COP26, we expect to see governments, tested by the pandemic, guided by the science and prepared to act unequivocally and with unity to end the climate emergency by bringing an end to the age of fossil fuels,” Greenpeace Executive Director Jennifer Morgan said in a statement…

The conference will also now take place a full year after the US presidential election this November, with the country likely to rejoin the Paris Agreement if a Democratic candidate can beat President Donald Trump…

The ideology of white supremacy leads the way toward disposable people and a disposable natural world

Planned Parenthood: life deemed unworthy of life or cannibalized for profitable parts?

Diversity: color judgment including racism, sexism, classicism, etc.?

Political congruence (“=”): selective exclusion of sociopolitically unprofitable constructs?

Social justice: relativistic?

Faith is a logical domain. Religion is a behavioral protocol. Ideology is a realization of the former. Whether God, gods, or mortal gods, they are inclusive.

Libertarianism is emergent. Liberalism is divergent. Progressivism is monotonic. Conservativism is moderating. #PrinciplesMatter

Hello Clyde. The source for the story that Chauvin and Floyd knew and disliked each other is CBS news. They’ve got a named source who appears on camera. This could be awkward if it is true because, as you say, Chauvin’s motive for killing Floyd would be personal animus rather than the much more politically incendiary racism.

In my experience, the established media are very reluctant to say, oops, we got the story wrong, so it’s going to be interesting to see how this plays out. My guess: it will be buried. The media have told a story about race-based police brutality, and this has spawned a movement, not only in the United States, but in Canada and Europe. If the story is acknowledged to have been wrong, a lot of people are going to look foolish. People don’t like looking foolish.

Nobody likes losing face. However, it is particularly embarrassing for those are trying to unjustifiably claim the moral high ground.

The media hasn’t made the case that Chauvin has a history of racially-motivated antagonism. Yet, they are telling everyone that this is obviously racism. I’m sure that the defense attorney will press the prosecution for evidence.

The Sierra Club had a seminal moment in the 90’s. They had been against illegal immigration and mass immigration for the obvious effects on the environment, consumerism, people coming from low Co2 footprint life and plugged into a higher Co2 output. California at its core is anti over-development. We were close to being at max load in mid 25millions in population. But someone got to them and all that went out the window. Now itś open borders come one come all lets eat the last tuna for sushi de-face our deserts with wind turbines and solar arrays. Sad

I don’t know a single white supremacist. And I don’t know of any significant problems caused by any (may have…but what/where).

On the other hand I know lots of Marxists…and know lots of people who know Marxists. They are all troublemakers. They are always trying to make other people behave differently (won’t leave anyone alone, and they shout down people who oppose them.

And I have heard of problems stemming from other Marxist group activities…they were responsible for 100 million political murders…and counting.

But ‘white supremacy’ will not be eradicated; it will be replaced with something else. Remember old fashioned ‘racism’? When it appeared it had been solved radical activists invented ‘institutional racism’. The rule of thumb radical activists apply is to change definitions at will when existing issues are failing the cause. Remember, for radicals there can be no solution to a problem; they do not seek solutions as a solution removes a weapon from the cause. George Orwell in Wigan Pier, explained how the English left had no love for those whom they claimed to speak (the poor), indeed they had only contempt for the poor, they simply hated the rich more.

The Sierra club author of this demonisation of “white” people needs to remember a basic of human nature.
If you are full of hate, you see things to hate everywhere. If you harbour love there are things to love, you see love everywhere.
It is sad to think, a supposedly intelligent human being of what ever colour ( which is incidental to most of us) should conflate or generalise in the way he does. He talks about selective negative things, in selective areas, then proceeds to include all those who share a skin tone with the misconduct providers are guilty of the crime of those few committing the crime.
If the world took his logic to heart and viewed all Muslims as violent terrorists, simply because some of those believers are violent terrorists, the push back by the MSM would be absolute and rightly so.
If we are using his collective guilt principle? What stops the world saying there are black drug dealers, therefore all black people are drug dealers?
The basic stupidity of the approach taken by Hop Hopkins is so juvenile, you have to question his level of intelligence overall.
Perhaps what we are seeing, is the the Marxist long march through the institutions, now includes such talking shops as the Sierra Club.
What a sad individual Hopkins must be?

White supremacy was brought to end with defeat the National Socialist German Workers’ Party by US forces and the Allied forces- around 1945.

Maybe, this white supremacy refers to Communist Party of China- which does leads the world in CO2 emission.
And the CCP are bunch of racists and also suffering from wild delusions of grandeur- as did the NAZIS.

Presently Germans {living in their frozen wastelands] are largely fanatical believers of climate change religion.
And maybe when CCP has been ended, there will be a billion fanatical believers of climate change.

Literally, ending climate change is silly.
We are living in an Ice Age which has two major climate changes events of what are called the glacial and interglacial periods.

But religious cults seem tend to imagine that if they get enough of the faithful, then something similar “the end” occurs.

Calling people fascists or white supremacists is a dangerous game. You might get what you propose. People get fed-up being called names and will think that, perhaps, it would not be such a bad idea to behave like fascists, or that it could be time to exercise that ubiquitous white supremacy. Be careful what you accuse people of.

I think he’s on to something. My reading of his thought processes is something like this: Gee, I’ve seen the way this meme of racism/white privilege thing has mobilised people even more than the XR protests. Not only that but I’ve even witnessed the nations leaders roll over in supplication. I’ve seen CEO’s falling all over each other to endorse BLM while the media cheer them on. Even better, nobody dare criticise the violence; even the mildest criticism is crushed. This is incredible. If we the environmental movement can make climate change a race issue, nobody will dare oppose us. Comrades, we will have undreamt of power. Hahaha…hahahahah.

“White supremacy” the new bogeyman. The big lie : that Blacks should fear death by White cops, which happens a few times a year and certainly is not always a matter of racism. So far, the latest victim, George, may or may not have been killed due to any racism. The facts are clear : tens of thousands of (mostly innocent)
Blacks in the city ghettoes are murdered every year, often for their Michael Jordan tennis shoes, or jackets.
By far the most likely death will come at the hands of another Black. These Black lives don’t seem to matter to BLM, which only pays attention to White killings of Blacks. Just because a WHite kills a Black does NOT mean that racism had anytyhing to do with it. If White police transgressions against Black suspects (usually criminals) were very frequent, we would hear all about it from BLM. By claiming that Black’s biggest threat comes from Whites, especiially policemen, BLMis showing itself to be guilty of enormous anti-White racism.
So far in all this, that is the only signiificant racism,, and rioters/looters, arsonists are the only significant danger to the public

The Symbionese Liberation Army was founded in Berkeley in 1973. By the 1970s after years of mass protests, some on the far left called for a political revolution and began to use terrorism to achieve this goal. Out of this environment, a number of organizations emerged including the Black Cultural Association, a black inmate group active at Vacaville prison. The group brought in white students to tutor prisoners in political science, black sociology, and African heritage.

Soon the group became increasingly political with Black Nationalism as its focus. Donald DeFreeze, serving a sentence for armed robbery, formed a splinter group called Unisight. The young white students from UC-Berkeley who saw all black inmates as political prisoners oppressed by the racist and corrupt American society assisted in his escape in March 1973.

By that summer, DeFreeze and his small group of white supporters had formed the Symbionese Liberation Army to oppose what they saw as an oppressive, racist society. With the slogan “death to the fascist insect that preys upon the life of the people,” the SLA adopted a Marxist platform that included ending racism, monogamy, the prison system, and establishing “homelands” within the United States for groups of color.

“The idea has taken on new force as folks in the mainstream environmental movement do our best to show up for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and all the Black people still living and subject to police violence.”

From the statistics I see, a big part of the problem is VIOLENCE AGAINST POLICE, not police violence. Black communities need to clean up their act and raise law-abiding and police-respecting kids. Too many black parents raise their kids to resist police and education. Police respond to how people they stop act. If they didn’t we’d have many more police funerals.

I just see this as yet another example of people who live inside the Democrats’ media bubble winding themselves tighter and tighter around their own axle. This is a guy who depends for his credibility on being able to claim that he represents “science,” and that he has “science” behind him. Yet here he comes, delivering a rant about White Supremacy. That can only play inside the Democrats’ media bubble. In fact he will be lauded for this by the residents of Democrat Media Fantasyland. But to anyone who doesn’t live inside the media bubble, this guy just self-identified as a U.S. certified nut. He’s no scientist, and he’s no climate advocate. He’s just another left-wing goofball who was hijacking an allegedly-genuine issue to promote, well, now he’s promoting racial strife.

Yet he’s “careful.” He tries very hard not to make mistakes of just this kind. Which tells us that he doesn’t realize that he’s saying something that is pretty far outside the Overton window once you leave the bubble.
