“Environmental Justice” $ub$umes Everything

From Government Oversight & Accounability

By GAO Webadmin,

This document just released by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency takes the cake.

Particularly on the heels of this email from a well-placed (and he wants you to know it!) Washington lawyer to his alma mater, UCLA Law School.

Merry Christmas, United States of America. if we can keep it.

Immigration? Yes, illegal immigration is a source of extreme environmental degradation but somehow I don’t think the EPA will be following the science on this aspect.

Bring back some of the big US factories from China and place them in friendly countries in Central and South America.

“…and generate new evidence to support policy and rule changes…”

There you have it. Science in the service of political aims.

Yes. That struck me also. Generating new evidence …

Sorry. I don’t remember the quote.
But didn’t somebody say something along the lines of, “Even if CAGW isn’t real we have to embrace it as the best way redistribute wealth.”

A couple along those lines.
We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.” – Timothy Wirth, president of the UN Foundation.

“No matter if the science of global warming is all phony. … climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.” – Christine Stewart, former Canadian Minister of the Environment

“But one must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy. Obviously, the owners of coal and oil will not be enthusiastic about this. One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore.”
Ottmar Edenhofer, co-chair of the U.N. IPCC Nov 13th, 2010

The government is becoming a real problem, whole departments need to be eliminated. They have outlived their usefulness if they were in fact ever useful.

If racism is systemic, what is the system? If it is going to be eliminated every pertinent detail of the system must be identified, analyzed and changed or discontinued. Evidently the EPA must have some idea of the most important details in order to direct the efforts of their attorneys. Could the rest of us know them as well? But wait, they can’t be very obvious or no generation of new evidence would be necessary. Perhaps the system itself, in its entirety, is racist. If this is so, it’s a problem that’s bigger than the EPA or any other government agency.

“If racism is systemic, what is the system?”
Mankind and sin.
Doesn’t matter what artificial divisions are devised. One group will always seek to dominate or eliminate another.
The god of this world (age, singular in the text. “Eternity” is plural.) is the maestro. (Luke 4:6, 2Corinthians: 4:4)
But his day’s are numbered.

If everything is the system then nothing is the system. (systemic)

Except those who are outside the system. Get a job with the world bank, probably the UN, and various other organizations with international scope and you are officially exempt from virtually all laws, and taxes, of any nation.

I think it is hard for us to fathom the mindset of these people. The entire government, academic ,NGO, climate industry, woke industrial complex is made up of snow flakes . They have no idea or conception of how wealth ( meaning an increase standard of living ) is created. They can’t conceive of the money ever “ running out” because they do not understand that money has to represent value, work product, an increased efficiency creation – or it is worthless.

This is the difference between the world “ they “ live in and the world a business owner lives in that actually creates and delivers a needed product or service: In the last couple of months I have noticed many small contractors like myself ( home repair, landscape, etc) doing jobs at essentially cost just trying to meet payroll. Despite the fact that a lot of the materials cost have gone up. This is the service sector starting to run out of steam.

How do you go broke? Slowly at first then suddenly. Probably true for nations too, just takes a little longer.

The mindset is easy to understand. It’s all about money and best of all, it’s money for doing something good and important without getting dirty or exhausted. These zealots go to sleep at night with an smile on their face and wake up the same way. If they fill in the right blanks and check the right boxes they advance a “career” in saving the planet. Nothing so banal and mundane as being a barrista or marketing flunky. They get to associate with others like themselves. In fact the whole ecology movement is a big mating mechanism, similar to DC where upper level bureaucrats, journalists and academics regularly attend each other’s weddings. They not going to turn down enpixelated money, after all it’s accepted for mortgage and car payments. Every society has their own version of the Soviet nomenclatura.

now tapping into and opening up a new artery from which the parasite can suck ever more blood and life from its host.
i.e. self-pleasuring themselves at everyone else’s expenses and actually creating the very problem they’re imagining they’re fixing.
Government over-reach and expenditure on this fakery will subsequently spiral out of all control

not dissimilar to many previous and wildly successful ‘wars’..
war on cancer
war on obesity
war on drugs……

and if anyone whispers a word of objection they’ll be instantly found guilty of racism, sexism, planetary destruction, gross stupidity and witchcraft

And if things could,nt get any worse we now have a military that can’t even do the things it is suppose to do( even if we stopped intervening in crap and giving all the hardware away or leaving it somewhere)

And US Navy has over priced defense systems with limited sustained endurance – terrible weapons evaluation and selection ( for the new drone warfare) Don’t even want to think of our ( US)current ground combat readiness( Israel’s military soldier training discipline really gone down hill) US moral too , I think not good. The intel just keeps coming in even on Christmas Eve and it is not good.
