When I read this story, I thought, “Finally sanity has re-entered the world”. Amazon shareholders rejected a proposal to respond to climate change.
Could it be true?
As it turns out, it’s not quite what the headline implied. As Buzzfeed reported, the shareholders at Amazon are as radical as the company’s founder.
Amazon shareholders rejected a proposal to develop a plan to respond to climate change during the company’s annual meeting on Wednesday. The proposal had gathered the support of nearly 7,700 employees across the company.
The resolution would have required Amazon’s board of directors to prepare a public plan for “disruptions posed by climate change” and how the company will reduce its dependence on fossil fuels.
Dozens of shareholders attended the shareholder meeting dressed in white. They stood up while Emily Cunningham, a user experience designer and member of Amazon Employees for Climate Justice, addressed her comments to CEO Jeff Bezos, who was not onstage during the meeting.
Any company who falls for this nonsense shows its vulnerability. Talk about taking your eye off the balls?!
Amazon isn’t in the “climate change” business. And yet its shareholders may feel some sense of worth by succumbing to the nonsense of climate farce.
When will capitalist push back?
Even Conservatives find themselves feeling pressured to “go green”. Meanwhile companies bank on the idea, merely changing their advertising, and not their products to fit the new narrative.
For the record, I applaud companies who don’t spend a dime on products, yet declare their product or service “green”. Why not capitalize on the craze? But they need shareholders appearing at meetings to push back on the nonsense that has infected our businesses.
We documented an exchange between the Father of Junk Science and a real-life human being on the existence of climate farce:
Al Gore appeared at an event, where he’s hawking his next installment of “Al Gore Gets Rich, Bitches” movie on global climate farce. At the event, Gore is confronted by James Eskridge who challenged Gore. As The Daily Caller reports:
Al Gore was challenged on climate science Tuesday night when the mayor of Tangier Island, a community threatened by coastal erosion, told the environmentalist film producer he hadn’t seen the sea level change since he began his first career as a commercial crabber in 1970.
Gore was taking questions from the audience on a CNN town hall with Anderson Cooper when the fisherman and Tangier Island mayor James Eskridge refuted Gore’s assertion that rising sea levels were endangering coastal communities.
“I’m a commercial crabber and I’ve been working the Chesapeake Bay for 50+ years. I have a crab house business out on the water and the water level is the same as it was when the place was built in 1970,” Eskridge said. “I’m not a scientist, but I am a keen observer and if sea level rises are occurring, why am I not seeing signs of it?”

But when truth didn’t work, Leftists resorted to intimidation.
As I wrote a while back about these tactics,
Americans know that Obama loves the farce of global climate change.
He has paid off scientists willing to say whatever he demands. As for legitimate scientists who would expose the boondoggle of global climate farce, they met a different fate.
As The Washington Free Beacon reported
A new congressional investigation has determined that the Obama administration fired a top scientist and intimidated staff at the Department of Energy in order to further its climate change agenda, according to a new report that alleges the administration ordered top officials to obstruct Congress in order to forward this agenda.
Rep. Lamar Smith (R., Texas), chair of the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, released a wide-ranging report on Tuesday that shows how senior Obama administration officials retaliated against a leading scientist and plotted ways to block a congressional inquiry surrounding key research into the impact of radiation.
A top DoE scientist who liaised with Congress on the matter was fired by the Obama administration for being too forthright with lawmakers, according to the report, which provides an in-depth look at the White House’s efforts to ensure senior staffers toe the administration’s line.
Obama declared climate change, “settled science”. He’s right: junk science.
We documented the arrest of a top “climate scientist” who lied about his data.
Global climate change is one of the biggest frauds perpetrated on humans since the invention of currency.
The ruse enriches a handful of global elitists who play games, betting on the stupidity of the public. So they pay a few people to sell their gimmicks, and then profit at unimaginable efforts.
So when I learned that one of their puppets had been arrested I wasn’t surprised. But there was a twist.
As NBC reported:
The EPA’s highest-paid employee and a leading expert on climate change was sentenced to 32 months in federal prison Wednesday for lying to his bosses and saying he was a CIA spy working in Pakistan so he could avoid doing his real job.
John C. Beale’s crimes were “inexplicable” and “unbelievably egregious,” said Judge Ellen Huvelle in imposing the sentence in a Washington. D.C. federal court. Beale has also agreed to pay $1.3 million in restitution and forfeiture to the government.
Beale said he was ashamed of his lies about working for the CIA, a ruse that, according to court records, began in 2000 and continued until early this year.
“Why did I do this? Greed – simple greed – and I’m ashamed of that greed,” Beale told the court. He also said it was possible that he got a “rush” and a “sense of excitement” by telling people he was worked for the CIA. “It was something like an addiction,” he said.
Shocking this bureaucrat called his job and the subterfuge a “rush”. How many other do-nothing bureaucrats get the same “rush”?
Yet, Leftists continue down this path. However, thankfully President Trump sees the nonsense of this.
