‘Evoke eminent domain’: JP Morgan CEO Says Gov’t Should Seize Private Property to Build Wind & Solar Farms: ‘The window for action to avert…climate change is closing’

From Climate Depot

Marc Morano

JP Morgan CEO, Jaime Dimon in his annual letter to shareholders: “The window for action to avert the costliest impacts of global climate change is closing…We need to do more, and we need to do so immediately…Massive global investment in clean energy technologies must be done and must continue to grow year-over-year. At the same time, permitting reforms are desperately needed to allow investment to be done in any kind of timely way. We may even need to evoke eminent domain – we simply are not getting the adequate investments fast enough for grid, solar, wind and pipeline initiatives. Policies like the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the Creating Helpful Incentives to Produce Semiconductors (CHIPS) and Science Act, and the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) — that hold the potential to unlock over $1 trillion in clean technology development — need to be implemented effectively…“The need to provide energy affordably and reliably for today, as well as the necessary investments to decarbonize for tomorrow, underscores the inextricable links between economic growth.”

Dimon also promoted JP Morgan’s “DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION EFFORTS”

In his annual letter to shareholders, JP Morgan CEO, Jaime Dimon, says that the government should seize private property to build wind and solar farms. Moreover, Dimon suggested that green initiatives should be embraced to eventually meet net-zero targets.

Dimon spoke on the call for government seizure and noted its potential impact on the ongoing fight against climate change. Conversely, the same letter to shareholders noted Dimon’s perspective on the banking crisis and its potential implications on the economy.

JP Morgan CEO Champions Green Projects

In what is a rather surprising statement, Jaime Dimon has spoken on the lengths he is willing to go to for green projects. Specifically, the JP Morgan CEO says that the government should seize private property to build wind and solar farms. Thus, fast-tracking green initiatives and embracing a greater chance in the fight against climate change.

Within his annual letter to shareholders, Dimon spoke on his rather concerning take. Stating, “Permitting reforms are desperately needed to allow investment to be done in any kind of timely way.”

Subsequently, Dimon stated, “We may even need to evoke eminent domain — we simply are not getting the adequate investments fast enough for grid, solar, wind, and pipeline initiatives.” Therefore, calling for governments to place the good of the climate over the private purchase of land and property.

The phrase eminent domain is meaning a government or state compulsory purchase of private property for the use of the public. Conclusively, Dimon spoke on the rather dire state of the energy crisis on the planet.

“The need to provide energy affordably and reliably for today, as well as the necessary investments to decarbonize for tomorrow, underscores the inextricable links between economic growth,” Dimon added.

You Will Own No Land & Be Happy?! UN, World Economic Forum Behind ‘War On Farmers’ & Ending Private Land Ownership

Alex Newman: Even private land ownership is in the crosshairs, as global food production and the world economy are transformed to meet the global sustainability goals, U.N. documents reviewed by The Epoch Times show.

One of the earliest meetings defining the “sustainability” agenda was the U.N. Conference on Human Settlements known as Habitat I, which adopted the Vancouver Declaration. The agreement stated that “land cannot be treated as an ordinary asset controlled by individuals” and that private land ownership is “a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth, therefore contributes to social injustice.”

Eminent domain is a hold-over from when sovereigns ruled and denizens were subjects (slaves). Its history in the US is pretty much a rationalized power-grab.

Well, since there is no compelling state interest (NO data, none, that supports the conjecture that human CO2 causes meaningful shifts in the climate zones of the earth, further there is strong data evidence that CO2 rise lags surface temperature rise by a quarter cycle), that would violate the 5th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America.

These banks act as go-betweens (for a large fee) to arrange financing, their exposure is minimal.

“where does Dimon get his climate knowledge?”

That was my first thought. Dimon could not prove action on CO2 needs to be taken if his life depended on doing so. Somebody told him CO2 was a problem and he believes it. But it’s not based on facts because there’s no evidence CO2 is any kind of a problem at all for humanity.

So even a big international banker can be clueless at times. And I do think he is clueless in this case. If he were just in it for the money, he could make plenty of it off windmills and solar without going to the extreme of suggesting confiscating other people’s property may be necessary to solve the CO2 “problem”. So I think he is serious about it in his own mind.

That doesn’t change the fact that there is no evidence action needs to be taken to control CO2.

I think there is a pandemic of Stupid going across, at least, the Western Democracies, and even smart people get infected.

Fraudulently mannipulate a temperature chart, and look what you get: International Bankers wringing their hands over CO2.

Utter twaddle, of course. It’s just a word salad. He mentions lack of investment in solar, grid and pipelines in the same sentence.

I follow JPM on the investment side and received CEO Dimon’s annual letter. This post does accurately reflect the CEO’s statements in his annual newletter… although he is not necessarily deemphasizing continuing devlopment and growth of fossil fuels, simply he is encouraging an all of the above focus to develop green and clean fossil fuel sources. Green and clean is developing much more slowly than you would gather from the mainstream media. Getting government “out of the way” and allowing continuing development of clean fossil fuel and pipeline projects while encouraging alternative wind and solar just makes sense. Take a look at BP’s annual energy forecast and EIA annual report and it’s clear that ‘green energy’ is not coming in the foreseeable future, and supporting all of the above just makes the most sense.

If government got “out of the way,” not even one large scale wind or solar project would be constructed, except by regressive governments hell bent on destroying their own economies.

As I like to say, the wind blows and sun shines over cities as well as the countryside. If eco-loon leftist city dwellers want wind and solar, let them build it on top of themselves. They can start by using eminent domain on all JP Morgan and Chase buildings.

mebbe, instead of a Massive global investment in clean energy technologies (that) must be done and must continue to grow year-over-year”, we should through our collective social energy into a massive investment in time travel technology and expand/grow that investment year after year.

That way we could go back and tell people from two hundred years ago to stop the unsustainable growth … that it will lead to ruination; I am pretty that they would buy into the program.

But if it didn’t, we could just go forward, past the ‘great failure’, and start over with like minded people.

Why think small. Managed in the correct fashion, time travel would be a greater tool than would be free-energy machines. If I can get the govt to confiscate Jamie’s wealth, and give it to me, I think I could make great strides toward researching, studying, comprehending what it would take to conquer time travel.

There is plenty of government land available for this if that is really what they want to do.
