Fonda: ‘There’d Be No Climate Crisis if It Wasn’t For Racism’

Fonda: ‘There’d Be No Climate Crisis if It Wasn’t For Racism’

January 27, 2023

This week on NBC’s The Kelly Clarkson Show, actress/activist/Vietnam-era traitor Jane Fonda has declared that the current “climate crisis” is a result of racism, because “everything’s connected.”

“Well, you know, you can take anything -– sexism, racism, misogyny, homophobia, whatever, the war, 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,” she said.

Asked to elaborate, Fonda replied, “Where would they put the shit? Where would they put the poison and the pollution? 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.”

This is a ridiculous simplification of the issue and doesn’t address where the vast majority of pollution comes from (it doesn’t come from “shit” put in black neighborhoods), but it’s par for the course for climate activists.

This isn’t the first time Hanoi Jane has tried to make bad weather a social justice issue. In a December appearance on MSNBC’s The Beat, she claimed — again without evidence — that racist and misogynistic “mindsets” are causing the “climate crisis.”
