Biden’s Climate Team Blames ‘Systemic Racism’

Biden’s climate team has identified the cause of climate change and it is “systemic racism.”

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

A pair of top incoming White House environmental aides has blamed “systemic racism” as a driver of climate change in an attempt to justify a government-led economic overhaul.

President-elect Joe Biden named progressive policy adviser Maggie Thomas as Office of Domestic Climate Policy chief of staff and climate advocate Cecilia Martinez as “senior director for environmental justice” on Thursday. Both Thomas and Martinez have cited racial inequality as perpetuating climate change, arguing that the Biden administration’s environmental policy must be centered on “racial and economic justice.”

“Unless intentionally interrupted, systemic racism will continue to be a major obstacle to creating a healthy planet,” Martinez said in a 2019 press release touting her “Equitable & Just” climate platform. “The only path forward is to design national climate policies that are centered on justice.”

For Thomas and Martinez, such policies require “massive” government spending and the “realignment of public dollars at all levels.” Thomas’s climate plan demands “trillions” in public investment—not only to “crack down” on oil production and shift away from the nation’s “fossil fuel economy” but also to fund welfare programs, including rent and utility relief. Martinez’s platform calls for much of the same, including increased government investment into “affordable and quality housing.”

Senator Joe Manchin (D- W.Va.) who is now likely America’s most powerful senator has said that he will oppose efforts by Democrats to make America’s utilities carbon-free in the next 15 years.

Only an incurable moron would link climate change to racism. And another thing. Biden isn’t running the country. He has only two jobs. He goes where his handlers tell him to go. He reads what they put on his teleprompter. That’s all.

So let me get this right, raise prices on utilities then give grants to lower it for a select few. Sounds like wealth redistribution.

Americans (the Conservative voters): “climate change”, which is a natural global process NOT controlled or affected by humans… has about enough of a relationship to “racism” as : the Labrea Tarpits do to traffic lights.
obiden: reverse your dementia-decision to engage in “green deal BS” to cancel/deny OUR USA energy independence that had been achieved based on our fossil fuels, and coal, and natural gas…independence from the rest of the world oil suppliers, most of them hostile to our USA. AMERICA FIRST, not last.
CANCEL the bogus paris a-chord [around our necks].

Open, fair-trade deals with foreign countries…AMERICA FIRST must benefit with any deals.

The Conservative voters have ALL the clues, especially about you, obiden…but you do NOT have a clue.

Are you being willfully dense or what? It’s not that racism causes climate change–it’s that the worst effects of climate change are borne by racial minorities. Just consider where oil refineries and other pollution sources are located. “Systemic racism” explains a lot of environmental issues–why do you think the Flint water crisis happened in a majority black city which wasn’t even being run by its own elected officials.

When energy costs double or triple everyone will pay, regardless of race. What IS racist is selecting people for jobs by “color” not qualification. Stupid is what stupid does.

Amen. Incompetence breeds incompetence. After pretending to run a campaign with only one plank (I hate Trump), what do you expect from a professional politician who has never accomplished one thing.
Over the course of the last 48 hours, we have gone from the best President ever to the Biggest Idiot Democrats Ever Nominated. As with Obama, O’Biden will only succeed in worsening race relations. The hell with jobs, the hell with energy independence, and make everyone a victim.
And if you believe there were really 80,000,000 idiots who voted for Biden, I have the winning Mega Millions numbers for Friday’s drawing….

I am so sick of hearing about the climate “crisis.” To me. such a crisis would mean essentially nonstop tornadoes, hurricanes, and other weather events with constant property damage, injuries and deaths. We are nowhere near that.

It’s a excuse to get into your wallet for their corporate friends to make a killing while putting you out of a job. Making you think It’s your fault so you can go on a guilt trip while they take your money. Nothing is happening with the weather that hasn’t happened in the history of earth many times. We just didn’t have people who could get rich blaming you for it. Hope they choke on their money.

It’s all to break this country and then blame people of color for doing it by putting them in office to run it. They are setting them and the rest of us to fail. It will destroy everything and put you living in a cave to save the Ghost Turd methane drizzle. (Don’t exist – yet.)

Climate Change isn’t caused by racism, but Climate Change laws and proposals such as the green new deal are racist as the affect the poorest people, most of whom are persons of color, of the united states and other nations. Replace cheap reliable energy with expensive renewables, like solar and winds will cause prices to rise and hurt people not able to afford such marginal technology. Most of the push behind Climate Changes laws has all been population control. Genocide disguised as “Saving the Planet”. GMO foods were developed to help raise crop production and feed the world, but now the are devil in the eyes of the elite.

The bogus ‘climate change’ official responses and legislation/litigations are what’s truly racist. Ask the African countries that simply want to ‘progress’ to modern powered societies but are being squelched by ‘bogus-environmentalism’, many SE Asian countries, South American as well.
Even racism in the USA was virtually eradicated, until Obama ‘reinvigorated’ it with his ‘reverse racism’, which is really just racism. He’s anti-Semitic to the core, as well.
And he’s talking to Joe through that earpiece, Joe owes him after all, he instructed the Dem governors and mayors to keep the lockdowns going after the end of the first ‘spike’ of COVID by May, 2020.

Do not understand why it takes you three days to OK my comments, I do not use direct profanity, generally do not call out specific people and do state my observations that is SUPPOSED to be covered by the first amendment however, those amendments are now rapidly being systematically destroyed by the top echelons of the Communist OOPs I mean the democrat garbage now dictating what we can and cannot do with our lives, wonder when they will begin using the (already constructed) concentration camps.
