1967 Blizzard

“Twas brillig and the slithy toves

Did gyre and gimble in the wabe

All mimsy were the borogoves

And the mome raths outgrabe.”

 — Jabberwocky: Lewis Carroll

I’ll just get right down to the guts of this: the link below goes to to a news article about Harris / AOC’s “Climate Justice Act” as it is titled, or whatever it’s called. It was dropped into the Senate and House legislation receptacles before the Democrat convention.

https://www.cfact.org/2020/08/25/kamala-harris-and-aoc-craft-crazy-climate-law/

From the article: Kamala Harris did not mention climate change in her acceptance speech, but she did not have to. She talked a lot about justice and justice is now code for climate. Thanks to Harris and AOC, the strange beast of “climate justice” is now a big part of the Democrat’s agenda.

In fact the team of Harris and A. Ocasio-Cortes has now codified the concept of climate justice. Just before the convention they jointly dropped the Climate Equity Act into the Senate and House hoppers.

The Equity Act does not mean that everyone gets their fair share of climate. The stated goal is for the Federal Government to adjust its investments and regulations to favor those who are supposedly most involved with climate change, or something like that.

The proposed law is so incoherent that it is hard to tell what it is for or what it does. That it would cause an enormous amount of confusion is certain.

The problem is that the central concept in the law is extremely unclear. Harris and AOC have continued the “war on climate” theme that AOC used when proposing the Green New Deal. Thus the Climate Equity Act is about something called “frontline communities.”

Apparently these so-called communities are on the frontline of climate change, or the frontline of stopping climate change, or some such. It is very hard to tell. – article

The following is excerpted from the Climate Equity Act. The proposed legislation itself is 48 pages long, loaded with the following :

Congress finds that—

3 (1)(A) the people of the United States have a

4 right to live in a clean, healthful, and sustainable  (No, really? But I already have that. Not my fault if someone can’t keep a clean house.)

5 environment and climate, with access to clean air and  (Always a good idea to get the well tested yearly.)

6 clean water;

7 (B) realizing the right described in subparagraph (A) will require addressing systemic environmental injustices and the growing inequities fueled

1) by climate change; 3 RYA20642 XK4 S.L.C. 1 (C) the Federal Government has the

2) responsibility to ensure that the right described in subparagraph (A)

3) is realized; and…. (so forth and so on) – Climate Equity Act

To define what is written in the opening part above, unless the Cuyahoga River is so polluted all over again that it is setting itself on fire, or the problems with metal pollution at the Flint, MI, water department have not been resolved, well – the “right to live in a clean, healthful, and sustainable environment” is already covered by the EPA in regard to both water and air contaminants, and that is where complaints go, along with complaints to city, county and state local government offices.  It’s the responsibility of all those offices to ensure that contaminants are properly dealt with. Therefore, this bill addresses an issue that has already been addressed by federal law.

If one goes any further into this, while the document itself is relatively short (a mere 48 pages), its content contains terms such as “climate justice”,  “Climate justice” is without definition. Nowhere has there appeared anything explaining, outlining, or defining the term “climate justice”. This is deliberate, a misdirection intended solely to leave the reader with some amorphous, unspecified threat that in fact does not exist.

To continue from the article: So everything depends on what a frontline community is. It is here that the confusion begins. This central concept, upon which everything turns, is deliberately not defined. That definition is something to be done after the law is passed, by an Advisory Board no less. – article

To not define either “climate justice” (an intangible) and “frontline community” (also an intangible) is deflection. While there appears to be a section defining “frontline community”, it is, again, a deflection. These entities are deliberately undefined in the bill. There is no applicable context, but there is an implied threat in using the term “climate justice”, the implication being that somehow, the climate on this planet can be controlled in specific ways (it can’t) and that there is probably some means of measuring or testing the “climate” in your vicinity to make sure that you’re getting enough “climate”. And again, since we mere humans have ZERO control over the climate on this planet, there is no defined plan to make sure that “climate” in your neighborhood or mine will be adequate for our needs. If you think we mere humans can control the climate planetwide, there’s a hurricane in the Caribbean that needs to be sent packing.

This is gobbledygook. As with secret codes to get into the clubhouse and special passkeys and handshakes, the “special language” that says something but defines nothing is less intelligible than Lewis Carroll’s “Jabberwocky”. It makes no sense of any kind. It just sounds so good, though – the po’ folks get their fair share of climate and those megamoneymakers can just pay for it.

    Legislation such as this is not about saving the environment, it is about making criminals out of law abiding, hard working citizens.

    • Hack Stone says:

      No, it is more about setting up yet another government agency that will disburse taxpayer money to companies and organizations that will “solve this crisis”, but in reality turn around and funnel that money to Democrat Party. If you have any doubt, look at Solyndra, $535,000,000 of taxpayer dollars and the manufactured zero solar panels.

        Spot on Hack!

        “The proposed law is so incoherent that it is hard to tell what it is for or what it does.”… It’s actually not hard at all, as Hack points out, it will line the pockets of democrats and their supporters with taxpayer monies.. That’s the only part that actually matters to them..

    Daaaayyyuuuum! I can’t believe I read the whole thing. Jabberwocky is right. Most disconcerting thing was the two skrunts teaming up to make sure that working whitey gets screwed…again. That damn carbon particle ain’t got a clue if it came out of a vehicle/house/building/firepit/bbq grill of a “frontline person” or Wilson White Bread. One more scam to separate the hard earned money from a working American and give it to a power made grubmint official so they can continue to give to their FSA voters. Neither does it know if it came from a plant in the US, China, Canada, Mexico, India, or BFE Where Ever.

    What this tells me is Whormala is letting us and San Fran Nan know that she is protecting the Also Old Cotex and somebody else’s district in NY may be on the chopping block. Is all this paper from the bill and all of the tax dollars collect going to build a wall in the Gulf to send all of the hurricanes back out to sea? Will the Equity Act make sure that Graybeard’s AO gets as much tornado sd we get?

    Climate Equity? DaHell?!? I want cooler summers here in Georgia, send some warmer winters up Ex’s way…oh…and yeah…I want a nice snowfall in the Tampa Area every Christmas Day so the Kids down there can snowsled and iceskate with their new toys. GMAFB!

    I’m frontline. I get climate. Also weather. I suspect Laura will swing by in a day or so, but from here I expect cloudy skies. We could use some rain, though. Which page do we appear on? Want some climate justice, me.

  4. Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman says:

    “Systemic environmental injustice” is as meaningless as “systemic racial injustice”. The only “systemic injustice” that I can see is the DildoCrats and RINO RepubliTards trying to continue to pull the wool over my eyes so they can continue to pick my pockets.

      I just want to say, from the bottom of my chest, the cockle region, maybe in the sub cockle area, I don’t know…
      But ever word you just typed makes me want to salute an American flag while wearing flag silkies, with Johnny Cash or CCR playing in the background, a stomach full of Kentucky’s finest and hotdogs, all right after I made some limp wristed antifa pos swallow his teeth because he tried to spray paint Marxist slogans on a statue of General George Washington!!

      Left-negation prefix

      Equity
      Justice
      Security

      (Something) equity = non-equity
      (Something) justice = non-justice
      (Something) security= non-security

      It is a form of NewSpeak, where the Leftist Humpty Dumpty changes well-understood words to mean whatever they want them to mean, typically the opposite.

      Systemic is another Left-null signal. Systemic (badthing) means “made up nonsense, because Left was denied power”.

    I have done a bit of travel as a space cowboy (I know, you’re shocked, I’m shocked, we’re all shocked) but with all due respect there Ex, but with the right amount and ratios of certain banned substances that there Jabberwocky is at least legible and I’m willing to argue one may just be able to extract a bit o’ sense out of it, if only for an elucidated flash of understanding as all the logic and matter aligns itself for one brief, almost imperceivable moment built just for the recipient…
    But that bitch be spouting off some crazy bullsh*t NO ONE understands.

  6. OWB says:

    Don’t need no definitions in laws no more. That’s what we gots bureaucrats for. Lots and lots of bureaucrats sittin’ ’round making stuff up and revising what they wrote last week to redefine whatever and publish revisions next week.

  7. Ex-PH2 says:

    The repeated use of the word “just” when connected to “climate” is an oxymoron. If you tried to nail these two bimps down and get them to clearly define what they mean by “a just climate” and/or “climate justice”, I’d wager they could not do so, period.

    “just” or “justice” are related to human endeavors that can be addressed in the real world. There is a degree of human control involved in it.

    However, “climate” used in connection with “just” or “justice” implies that humans can control that which is uncontrollable (not counting HVAC for a dwelling), and therefore, “a just climate” and “climate justice” are not only oxymoronic phrases, they are also a means of covering the real purpose behind this bill.

    What IS the real purpose behind it? We can speculate on that. Good idea to keep an eye on such things, so as to not be taken by surprise.

    Leftwing fascism rationalized by word salad.

    This is the new attack from the “progressives.” Use “climate change” to promote their bullshit “social justice” agenda. Nothing more, nothing less.
