Jane Fonda protest USA’s energy, but ignores Vietnam’s coal & oil


Let us consider actress Jane Fonda, a former anti-war protester who journeyed to North Vietnam in 1972 at the height of the Vietnam War, earning the nickname “Hanoi Jane.” A pair of well-known environmental skeptics now speculate on her near future.

“Jane Fonda moved to Washington, D.C. so she could get arrested every Friday at the U.S. Capitol to protest U.S. energy policy and lobby for the Green New Deal. The question looms: Will Jane Fonda return to Hanoi to protest Vietnam’s rapid acceleration of coal and oil to cloth and feed its population?” asks Marc Morano, founder of Climate Depot, a news site which tracks climate alarmist trends.

“If coal and oil use allegedly threaten a ‘climate emergency’, why isn’t Fonda heading back to Hanoi to protest the Vietnamese government’s fossil fuel use?” he wonders.

“Vietnam can’t build enough coal plants soon enough to keep pace with its booming economy. Now that Hanoi Jane has become Climate Calamity Jane, her presence in Vietnam is probably no longer welcome,” observes Steve Milloy, founder of, another news site which debunks environmental claims.
