SAG Pres. Fran Drescher, during the SAG Awards carried live Sunday night on Netflix’s channel on YouTube, said: “I am very proud to say that SAG-AFTRA and MPAA has forged Green Council, the biggest joint effort of stars and studios to save the planet since World War II. Mission No. 1: an honor system to eliminate single-use plastic on camera, behind the scenes, and leverage star power to challenge audiences around the world to do the same. You may notice this year on your tables, they’re all glass bottles.”
Brent Baker, the vice president of research and publications for the Media Research Center: "Perhaps she should be a little more concerned about her members demanding on-set trailers and private jets."

- ‘It’s like heroin, if you do it once, you’ll never stop’ – Bill Maher admits he loves using private jets, calls out ‘hypocrite’ environmentalists like John Kerry, celebs
Maher went on to call out the Biden administration's climate czar John Kerry for his infamous use of private jets, saying "it's like if the Secretary of Homeland Security smuggled drugs in his butt." ...
"Look, sorry not sorry. I tried to do my part to the environment. I never had kids, the one thing worse for the planet than private jets… I had the first generation Prius in 2001. It looked like a Tylenol gel cap. I was always handing my keys to valets that were driving a better car than me. I had the first Tesla in 2010 And honestly, both these cars sucked… But both times, I said to myself, 'Okay, I'll take one for the team because I have a platform so I'll do the right thing. And then everybody will follow.'… Nobody followed."

- Jane Fonda links the ‘climate crisis’ to racism: ‘Everything’s connected’ – ‘There’d be no climate crisis if it wasn’t for racism’
Jane Fonda: "Well, you know, you can take anything - sexism, racism, misogyny, homophobia, whatever, the war," the actress said. "And if you really get into it, and study it and learn about it and the history of it and everything's connected. There'd be no climate crisis if it wasn't for racism."
"Where would they put the poison and the pollution?" Fonda continued. "They're not gonna put it in Bel Air. They've got to find some place where poor people or indigenous people or people of color are living. Put it there. They can't fight back. And that's why a big part of the climate movement now has to do with climate justice."

‘Climate Homicide’: New paper in Harvard Env. Law Review calls for ‘prosecuting’ big U.S. oil firms for ‘climate deaths’
UK Guardian: Authors of paper accepted for publication in Harvard Environmental Law Review argue firms are ‘killing members of the public at an accelerating rate’
Climate Homicide: Prosecuting Big Oil For Climate Deaths - Harvard Environmental Law Review, Vol. 48, No. 1, 2024
‘Climate homicide’: Could Big Oil be sued for disaster deaths? ‘Prosecuting Big Oil for Climate Death’ urges new paper in the Harvard Environmental Law Review - The paper, “Climate Homicide: Prosecuting Big Oil for Climate Death” — written by Arkush and Donald Braman, an associate professor at George Washington University Law School — will be published next spring in the Harvard Environmental Law Review. “We concluded there aren't really any legal or factual barriers to prosecution,” Arkush said.
Climate Depot's Marc Morano Response: "The wacky world of climate change strikes again! Blaming fossil fuel companies for 'climate homicide' is all part of the plan to merge public health and climate change. We have already seen a doctor diagnose the first patient in the world as suffering from 'climate change' in 2021." See: B.C. doctor clinically diagnoses patient as suffering from ‘climate change’ – ‘Picked up his patient’s chart & penned in the words ‘climate change’
Morano: "Climate change concerns are also limiting medical treatments for patients. We have seen calls for cancer treatments to be cognizant of its 'carbon footprint' and efforts to restrict anesthesia based on climate concerns. We already have academics demanding that 'climate change' be added to death certificates as a cause of death." See: Calls to add ‘climate change’ to death certificates – New study demands ‘climate change’ be added as ‘pre-existing condition’
Morano: "Of course, the reality is exactly the opposite. During the era of fear about 'global warming,' climate-related deaths have dropped dramatically, proving that mankind has adapted to climate change by using the very oil and other fossil fuels that Harvard Law now wants to charge companies with murder over!"

Analysis: The UN’s Newest Climate Report Is A Woke Dumpster Fire Masquerading As Science – ‘Climate justice…Equity & Inclusion…Redistributive policies’
MICHAEL BASTASCH: Variations of the words “equity” and “inequity” appear 31 times in the 36-page (summary) document. Variations of “inclusive” and “inclusion” appear 17 times. The document even mentions “colonialism” and repeatedly refers to climate and social “justice” for “marginalized” groups. ... The UN report also contains an entire section titled “Equity and Inclusion,” which states “[e]quity remains a central element in the UN climate regime.” The report goes on to state that “[r]edistributive policies … that shield the poor and vulnerable, social safety nets, equity, inclusion and just transitions, at all scales can enable deeper societal ambitions and resolve trade-offs with sustainable development goals.” ... The report’s accompanying press release is quite explicit about its goal: “Taking the right action now could result in the transformational change essential for a sustainable, equitable world.” ...
The release goes on to quote one of the report’s authors, who says: “Climate justice is crucial because those who have contributed least to climate change are being disproportionately affected.”
