- Watch: Morano on Jesse Watters Primetime on Fox News talks about how kids propagandized by wokeism – ‘Kids being told ‘data is racist…that white supremacy is the cause of climate change’.
Jesse Watters Primetime - Fox News Channel - Broadcast January 16, 2023
Morano: "Wokeism has invaded their lives and propagandized them on climate change. We have kids out there who believe that you need to defund the police or abolish the police -- that those issues are one of the causes of climate change. Kids are being told by professors -- one at the University of Rhode Island -- that the scientific data is racist. They're being told by NASA scientists that white supremacy is the cause of climate change. These kids aren't being taught how to think anymore. They're being taught to be afraid, and they're being propagandized to be climate activists. And that's what even Leonardo DiCaprio is on record saying. 'We have to get kids young' to turn them into these climate activists who will then sue the government for not ensuring they have a safe climate." ...
"If you are worried that there is a climate emergency, which these kids are, the way to solve it is the exact opposite of the climate agenda or Green New Deal. It's wealth, technology, and innovation. That is the way forward."Posted December 1, 20227:24 AM by Admin | Tags: development, egypt, funding, un

- UCLA law prof & UN ‘Racism’ Envoy: ‘Hi-tech capitalist solutions’ for climate change are ‘perpetuating racism’
Tendayi Achiume, who’s finishing up her tenure as United Nations Special Rapporteur on Contemporary Forms of Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance, told The Guardian that “green solutions […] are being implemented at the expense of racially and ethnically marginalised groups and Indigenous peoples.”
"The rush towards sustainable alternatives to fossil fuels, including electric cars and renewable energy, was creating what Achiume described as 'green sacrifice zones', where already marginalised groups were exposed to environmental harms from the extraction of the very minerals needed for green tech."
- Nations promise to protect 30% of Earth by 2030 – Agree to formation of a new UN biodiversity fund
Rich countries have committed to increase international aid for biodiversity to $20bn annually by 2025, rising to $30bn by 2030, so as to help countries in the Global South with their efforts to conserve the world's remaining biodiversity 'hotspots', which are largely clustered in developing economies.

- Renewables have become the West’s new blood diamonds
Showing no moral or ethical concerns for the disposable workforce, wealthy countries continue to encourage subsidies to procure electric vehicles and build more wind and solar energy infrastructure. Those subsidies are providing financial incentives to the developing countries mining for those green materials to continue their exploitation of poor people and environmental degradation of their landscapes...The Department of Labor said it would add lithium-ion batteries to a list of goods made with materials known to be produced with child or forced labor under a 2006 human trafficking law. The decision was based on many batteries using cobalt, a mineral largely mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where children have been found to work at some mining sites.
- Newsweek OpED: ‘Welcome to the New Era of Environmental Colonialism’ – ‘Green-wrapped bribes to developing countries…create a relationship of dependency’
By HÜGO KRÜGER AND JOEL KOTKIN: Rather than an engine of justice, climate reparations will exacerbate the growing separation between the West and everyone else. Even as the West sends green-wrapped bribes to developing countries, Russia isn't playing the blood money card. Neither is China. ... Environmentalism is creating deep alienation from the West in the Global South, and it will only grow. Instead of submitting to green poverty, African countries, likely with Chinese help, will seek to boost their energy resources, including hydrogen, nuclear and natural gas, irrespective of the well-fed green Cassandras...
Since 1945, the U.S. economy has fallen from of 50 percent of Global GDP down to 20 percent as of today—which is almost the same as China's. Europe's downturn has been on a similar trajectory from almost a 30 percent share in 1980 to merely 16.5 percent in 2016. By 2050, only two EU economies—Germany and the UK—will join America the top 10 economies worldwide as measured by GDP. ... As non-Western countries seek to grow, they may see the West as simply a convenient source of guilt money, rather than as a dependable business partner. China, Russia and India could well emerge their natural allies. Russia after all is the world's largest exporter of grain, which forms the stable diet of many African countries, while China remains the World's largest factory, able to supply products more easily than the steadily deindustrializing West.
Great Water Reset: The UN & WEF are coming for your water now! ‘Sustainable development’ water dictates – Aim to ‘achieve internationally agreed water-related goals’
Cheryl K. Chumley: The United Nations plans to protect water that’s used for bathing; water that’s used for developments; water that’s home to sea life; water that’s used for transportation. So the up-and-coming controls would likely focus on residential limits to water usage, and costly increases to access that water; on bans on agricultural usage, and costly increases on farmers; on strict controls on the types and numbers of ships that can sail the seas and rivers and channels, and costly increases for this form of transportation. ... as with carbon offsets, the U.N. water czars will demand trades of activities to offset the supposed pollution of the waterways.
So much for jet skiing. So much for fishing on the weekends with the family. It’ll be too expensive — and regulated.
“Natural resources crises, including for water and food, come within the top 10 biggest risks facing humanity in the coming decade,” the World Economic Forum wrote. ... “[A]s global warming continues to take effect, ordinary weather is becoming a thing of the past, exacerbating our water crisis,” the World Economic Forum wrote.

Lawyers Seek To Add Stock Of Lawyer Jokes By Demanding Oil Companies Be Prosecuted For Homicide
So if using oil is murder—and it has to be murder and not manslaughter, for our authors know of what they do—then lawyer Donald Braman and “public citizen” David Arkush are murderers. Perhaps they’ll turn themselves in? If it isn’t ink, it’s the gas they put in their cars, or the fuel in the planes in which they fly, or in heating or cooling their home, or running the electricity to pay for their Netflix accounts, or in manufacturing the clothes they wear, or in the plastic which surrounds them in their own homes, or in growing the food they eat. There is no way these sad individuals can remove the charge of hypocrisy, or escape the logic of their own argument. ...
If this “lethal harm”, caused by use of oil, is indeed “unparalleled in human history”, then our authors, who knowingly participate in this lethal harm, damn themselves. None of this can, or must, be taken seriously. The charge is absurd. It is asinine. It can only be the result of, as I said, lowly greed, or worse, profound stupidity and irresponsibility.
