If You’re Into Identity Politics, Nothing Should Be More Important Than ‘Climate Change’ Or Something

If You’re Into Identity Politics, Nothing Should Be More Important Than ‘Climate Change’ Or Something

Interestingly, many people attempt to take me to task for my long held notion that the anthropogenic climate change movement is primarily about politics. Leftist politics. And nutty Cult Of Climastrology members like the UK Guardian keep proving me right

If you care about identity politics your priority has to be saving the planet

Someone writes a memo about his views on gender difference and it kicks off. Apparently women are in tears, too traumatised to go to work. A baker refuses to ice a wedding cake for two guys and my Twitter feed practically bursts into flames. “HOW CAN THIS BE HAPPENING?!”

But mention the climate crisis, something that is smashing temperature records, raising sea levels, driving diseases into places they’ve not been before, and which may lead, as Professor Stephen Hawking suggests, to a need for the human race to flee the planet, and there’s radio silence. You can almost see the digital tumbleweed. (snip)

But what is surprising is that the left are not more fired up about the climate crisis. In the UK, commentators such as Katie Hopkins imply that the only people who care are hysterical lefty shills. Of course lots of people, on the left and right do care, more than ever. After all, this is an issue of science and survival and we all have the same to lose. But in my experience, many on the left who should care more about climate change just don’t. People who are extremely vocal about homophobia, transphobia, racism and sexism seem to have a blind spot. Which is odd because in the coming decades, all those problems (and more) will be supersized. (snip)

People are killed because they are of colour, women, trans, gays or lesbians. These are among the most important issues. But could it be that there are things that we must also raise our voices for, that are more important and on which all other issues rest and rely? The DUP’s position on equal marriage, the BBC gender pay gap, Piers Morgan’s views on non-binary people – all are meaningless if the fight that future generations face is for clean water or surviving wars caused by migration that will make the Syrian crisis, itself partly driven by extreme drought, look like a children’s tea party. We must wake up and take responsibility. This is not a case of either/or – it is possible to campaign on multiple issues at the same time, but for too long, too many progressives have stayed silent over climate change.

There’s plenty more about identity politics, and you can see how writer Matthew Todd attempts to link it all with ‘climate change’, much like Warmists have to link every holiday, every rain storm, every time the wind blows, when a volcano erupts, if there’s an earthquake, you name it, to ‘climate change.’ They cannot help themselves.

What you’ll end up is with a small number becoming more unhinged and vocal, while even more people will tune out from ‘climate change’, realizing that it is nutty and has little to nothing to do with actual science.
