Black Lives and the Green New Deal

  • A divestment from industrial multinational use of fossil fuels and investment in community-based sustainable energy solutions.

Ecomodernists such as Michael Shellenberger and Ted Nordhaus, many in the 4IR movement such as Klaus Schwab, and advocates of 100% Nuclear, insist on large scale industrial production of energy. Their continual dismissal of concerns of communities of color and their refusal to engage with these communities is a manifestation of the white supremacy embedded in STEM in the US and the Global North in general.
