Into America
Climate Denial is Racist

Into America

Play Episode Listen Later Aug 11, 2022 31:08


As climate change fuels an increase in natural disasters like hurricanes, wildfires, and extreme heatwaves, the threat is not evenly distributed. Black Americans are more likely to live in areas that are more flood-prone, hotter, and have worse air quality. They're also less likely to have access to life-saving measures like air conditioning. And even though President Joe Biden's new $369 billion climate agenda has passed the senate after Democratic Senators Joe Manchin and Kristen Sinema finally got on board, the United States has done little to address the climate crisis in recent decades, especially as Republicans continue to either deny that climate change exists, or refuse to take action. Mary Annaïse Heglar, a writer and co-host of the climate podcast Hot Take, argues that this inaction is rooted in racism. This week on Into America, Heglar and host Trymaine Lee discuss the links between climate change and white supremacy. They also dig into a dangerous ideology that is growing in popularity on the far-right called eco-fascism, where adherents believe that the only way to solve climate change is to stop immigration, and even kill Black and brown people. For a transcript, please visit msnbc.com/intoamerica. Follow and share the show on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, using the handle @intoamericapod.Thoughts?

Leonard Lopate at Large on WBAI Radio in New York

(8/4/22) Taylor Brorby author of Boys and Oil: Growing up gay in a fractured land, recounts his upbringing in the coalfields; his adolescent infatuation with books; and how he felt intrinsically different from other boys. Now an environmentalist, Brorby uses the destruction of large swathes of the West as a metaphor for the terror he experienced as a youth. From an assault outside a bar in an oil boom town to a furtive romance, and from his awakening as an activist to his arrest at the Dakota Access Pipeline, Boys and Oil provides a startling portrait of an America that persists despite well-intentioned legal protections. Join us when Brorby, an Annie Tanner Clark Fellow in Environmental Humanities and Environmental Justice at the Tanner Humanities Center at the University of Utah discusses his memoir about growing up gay amidst the harshness of rural North Dakota, on this installment of Leonard Lopate at Large on WBAI 99.5FM.

This keynote lecture took place at the Gramsci in the Middle East & North Africa Conference organised by the LSE Middle East Centre in cooperation with Ghent University from 9-10 May, 2022. The conference explored, through empirically-grounded research, how Gramsci's work can help us make sense of our contemporary moment in the region marked by a significant expansion in resistance and uprising. Patrizia Manduchi is Director of the GramsciLab and Associate Professor of History of the Contemporary Arab World at the Department of Political and Social Sciences of the University of Cagliari. She has published numerous works on the topic of Islamic radicalism, such as: 'The fury of Allah' (Quaderni di Orientalia Karalitana); 'From pen to mouse: Dissemination tools of the concept of jihad' (curated by Franco Angeli); 'This world is not a place for rewards: Life and works of Sayyid Qutb, martyr of the Muslim Brothers' (Aracne) and 'Voices of dissent: Student movements, opposition politics and democratic transition in Asia and Africa' (Aracne). Brecht De Smet is a senior postdoctoral researcher at the Middle East and North Africa Research Group at Ghent University, where in 2012 he completed his PhD. Brecht's research interests entail prefigurative and hegemonic class politics, marginalization, and political economy in Egypt, the MENA region, and beyond. He has published articles, opinion pieces, and two books on the politics of revolution and counter-revolution in Egypt (2016). He is now working on the 'Understanding political change from the Margins: Social and Environmental Justice in Morocco and Tunisia' project sponsored by the Belgian Fund for Scientific Research.

Those who are socially vulnerable, economically vulnerable those who don't have health-care access. We then make sure our climate policies emphasize protecting them. If we do that, I think we'll be able to protect everybody from climate change.”   Plus, Shashawnda Campbell from the South Baltimore Community Land Trust, on why she's educating and mobilizing neighbors … and is in it for the long game.

TxCEF believes that an equitable transition to clean energy will help to mitigate the impacts of the climate crisis, eliminate energy poverty, create green jobs and catalyze economic development opportunities in historically under-resourced communities. Stephen's career spans over 20 years of government relations, public affairs, and energy sustainability experience. He was the 2014 Democratic Nominee for Texas Railroad Commissioner, making him the youngest African American to win a statewide primary in Texas.

Their conversation provides a solid foundation for this topic, including the key stakeholders and financial considerations, including green energy investment opportunities and wholesale lines of credit. This episode highlights the intersection between the ‘E' and the ‘S' of ESG. It reminds us of the challenges we face as a global community to ensure that no one is ‘left behind' as we adjust to meet current energy demands.

The environmental justice movement began in the 1980s which address the unfair exposure of poor and marginalized communities to harms associated with resource extraction, hazardous waste, and other land uses. It's often closely tied with environmental racism. Dr. Robert Bullard first defined environmental racism in his 1990 book Dumping in Dixie, and is now serving on the White House Environmental Justice Council to develop a screening tool to determine which communities get priority for new climate investments.

Join Seven Stories Press and Haymarket Books for a launch of Alaa Abd el-Fattah's important new book, "You Have Not Yet Been Defeated". “The text you are holding is living history.” — Naomi Klein, from the foreword to You Have Not Yet Been Defeated Alaa Abd el-Fattah is arguably the most high-profile political prisoner in Egypt, if not the Arab world, rising to international prominence during the revolution of 2011. A fiercely independent thinker who fuses politics and technology in powerful prose, an activist whose ideas represent a global generation which has only known struggle against a failing system, a public intellectual with the rare courage to offer personal, painful honesty, Alaa's written voice came to symbolize much of what was fresh, inspiring and revolutionary about the uprisings that have defined the last decade. To celebrate the launch of the first English language collection of his essays, social media posts, and interviews, Alaa's sister Sanaa Seif—herself an activist, filmmaker, and former political prisoner of the Sisi regime in Egypt—will be joined by Naomi Klein, Ruth Wilson Gilmore, and Sharif Abdel Kouddous for a conversation on the wide range of subjects covered in this important new book.

THE THESIS: Social media companies are getting ready to censor even more news for The Party. Environment, Gender and even more Covid. So, what's next? College Debt? Abortion? Racism? So, what do we do about it?  THE SCRIPTURE & SCRIPTURAL RESOURCES:  Matthew 15:18-20 "But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a person. For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander. These are what defile a person. But to eat with unwashed hands does not defile anyone."  James 4:17 "So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin."  2 Timothy 4:3 "For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions."  What Does the Bible Say about Lying? THE NEWS & COMMENT: [AUDIO] - Paul Harvey in 1992 with a warning about the climate change hoax Google targets climate change misinformation in crackdown on digital advertising [AUDIO] - WATCH: The DOJ is creating the "Office of Environmental Justice."

Let's hope @elonmusk is willing and able to undo this kind of insane Orwellian censorship that has no basis in reality. Today we led 19 AGs calling on Congress to pass the Supporting All Veteran Families Act.

Covid Pilots Injured By the mRNA Injections Speak Out: ‘I Will Probably Never Fly Again' • Children's Health Defense https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/pilots-injured-covid-vaccines-speak/ What's next?

Where do I sign up for reimbursement?" Warren refuses to answer and completely changes the subject. Of course, the DHS could be dealing with this (so could the FBI), but why do that when you can police Twitter posts?  [AUDIO] - DOOCY: "These activists posted a map with the home addresses of the Supreme Court justices. Is that kind of thing this president wants...?" PSAKI: "The reason people are protesting is because women across the country are worried about their fundamental rights."

With so much suffering going on in the world that's worthy of our compassion and engagement, it's easy to become overwhelmed by it even as we have the desire to remain engaged.

When not managed effectively, it wears us down and diminishes our ability to contribute in a positive way.On this episode of Being Well, Forrest talks with trauma expert Laura van Dernoot Lipsy about how we can better manage secondary traumatic stress, how to avoid burnout and overwhelm, and what it looks like to stay hopeful and live fully in the face of daunting societal challenges.About Our Guest: Laura van Dernoot Lipsky is the founder and director of The Trauma Stewardship Institute and author of Trauma Stewardship: An Everyday Guide to Caring for Self While Caring for Others and The Age of Overwhelm.
