Warmist Cornel West: Not Divesting From Fossil Fuels Is Like A Planetary Selma Or Something

Some Warmists have called for others in the Cult Of Climastrology to tone it down, stop being so over-the-top with their alarmism. Cornel West apparently didn’t get the message

(UK Guardian[1]) The outspoken civil rights activist and academic Cornel West said Harvard University risked being on the wrong side of a “planetary Selma”, culminating a week-long campaign by students and prominent alumni campaigning for the most prominent university in the US to divest from fossil fuels.

The sit-in protest shut down the campus building that houses the president’s office for the entirety of so-called “heat week”[2], and forced the closure of another administration building for two days.

Funny that the UK Guardian, which has decided to forgo responsible journalism in favor of being activists for Hotcoldwetdry, would publish this article, considering they haven’t divested their own portfolio and still use fossil fueled vehicles to deliver their paper edition.

“It’s climate justice, more than anything,” McKibben said in an inteview with the Guardian. “And no one has stood on the side of reason and justice more than Cornel West.”

Strange how so much of Warmist language sounds like Progressive language, wouldn’t you say?

West, in a final protest organised by the student group Divest Harvard, pushed even further on (Harvard University president David) Faust.

“Ecological catastrophe is as evil as white supremacist catastrophe, anti-Jewish catastrophe, anti-gay catastrophe, anti-Muslim catastrophe,” West said to loud applause on Friday. “Doctor Faust, we now have a planetary Selma. We want you on the right side.”

Someone ask Mr. West if he still drives a fossil fueled vehicle and takes other modes of fossil fueled travel. This goes for Bill McKibben, and all the others mentioned within the article. Ask them if they have divested all their own portfolios from, as the Guardian petition asks at the link, the 200 fossil fuels companies. I bet there will be quite a bit of ums and ahs and hemming and hawing.

Someone should also ask all the snowflakes attending Harvard and this protest if their parents, most of whom are probably well off, have divested from fossil fuels.

Oh, wait, sorry, my bad, I forgot that things like divestment and giving up the use of fossil fuels is for Other People.
