Barefoot Inuit grieves on tiny iceberg that climate change means no more wearing mukluks

People of Colour Experience Climate Grief More Deeply Than White People

We are not only disproportionately affected by the climate crisis, but we carry a pain that comes from a long history of racial terror.

… Working in the climate movement while trying to process climate grief can be difficult for people of colour, whose voices are so often silenced and ignored.

The whole article is like that.

    Opinion Review & Outlook

    Should Florida Bail Out New York?
    A comparative look at population growth and spending over 10 years.
    By The Editorial Board
    May 17, 2020 4:15 pm ET

    Democrats want a $915 billion budget bailout for states and cities, and the leading lobbyist is New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. His main public antagonist on the subject is Florida Senator and former Governor Rick Scott. Both men were first elected Governor in 2010, so let’s do the math to consider which state has managed its economy and finances better over the last decade.

    [MORE]

    In 2010 New York’s population of 19.378 million was larger than Florida’s 18.8 million. By mid-2019 Florida had grown to 21.48 million, according to the Census Bureau, while New York had barely increased to 19.453 million. Yet Mr. Cuomo recently signed a budget for fiscal 2021 of $177 billion that is even bigger than last year’s, papering over what was a $6 billion deficit before the coronavirus. Florida’s budget for fiscal 2021, not yet signed by new Governor Ron DeSantis, is expected to be about $93 billion.

    Democrats in Albany are claiming to be victims of events that are out of their control. But they have increased spending by $43 billion since 2010—about $570,000 for each additional person. Florida’s budget has increased by $28 billion while its population has grown 2.7 million—a $10,400 increase per new resident.
    ***

    New York has a top state-and-local tax rate of 12.7%, while Florida has no income tax. Yet New York has a growing budget deficit, while Mr. Scott inherited a large deficit but built a surplus and paid down state debt. The difference is spending.

    New York’s spending on worker retirement benefits has nearly doubled since 2010 and is six times greater than Florida’s. Its debt-service payments have also doubled. Albany’s biggest cost driver is Medicaid, which gobbles up 40% of the state budget—twice as much as education. Florida spends about the same on schools as on Medicaid.

    Blame New York’s cocktail of generous benefits, loose eligibility standards and waste. New York spends about twice as much per Medicaid beneficiary and six times more on nursing homes as Florida though its elderly population is 20% smaller. Many New York nursing homes and hospitals are organized by unions, which use their political clout to drive generous pay and benefits.

    Mr. Cuomo in 2014 expanded Medicaid as part of ObamaCare to able-bodied individuals earning up to 133% of the poverty line. Florida didn’t. While the federal government initially picked up 100% of the ObamaCare expansion tab, New York is now on the hook for 10%, which contributed to this year’s $4 billion Medicaid shortfall.

    New York spends about $76 billion a year on Medicaid—three times more than Florida. Swelling Medicaid costs have squeezed spending on transportation, causing Empire State trains and roads to fall into disrepair. Florida has found money to pave potholes and increased transportation spending 10 times more than New York between 2010 and 2019.

    Mr. Cuomo pleads poverty by claiming New York is a “donor” state to the federal government. But federal dollars account for about 35.9% of New York’s spending compared to 32.8% of Florida’s, according to the Tax Foundation. New Yorkers pay more in federal taxes than what Albany gets back because the progressive federal tax code hits high earners the hardest and New York still has many high earners. The “donors” are individuals, and the money isn’t Mr. Cuomo’s.

    In any case, many high earners are moving to lower-tax states. New York lost $9.6 billion in adjusted gross income to other states in 2018 while Florida gained $16 billion. Workers are following jobs, and vice versa.

    The rate of private job growth in Florida has been about 60% higher than in New York from January 2010 to January 2020. Finance jobs expanded by 25% in Florida compared to 9.7% in New York. By our calculations, New York would generate $10 billion more annually in tax revenue if its personal income had grown at the rate of Florida’s over the last decade.

    New York’s future has been discounted before, but the coronavirus may be its most serious economic challenge. Many service businesses are learning they don’t need as many workers in the office and can save money by downsizing. Morgan Stanley has said it intends to reduce office space in New York City, and Twitter has told employees they can work remotely as long as they want. Many restaurants were struggling before the coronavirus due to New York’s high minimum wage, taxes, rents and suffocating regulation. Some may now close permanently.
    ***

    Mr. Cuomo no doubt realizes all this, which is why last week he cited a repeal of the $10,000 limit on the state-and-local tax deduction as his top request from Congress to keep more high earners from leaving. He also wants $61 billion in budget relief, which the Empire Center’s E.J. McMahon notes would cover projected deficits for four years assuming spending increases by 4% annually.

    The policy question is why taxpayers in Florida and other well-managed states should pay higher taxes to rescue an Albany political class that refuses to restrain its tax-and-spend governance. Public unions soak up an ever-larger share of tax dollars, but Albany refuses to change. Mr. Scott is right.

    Of course, it’s not just Florida from whom Cuomo is demanding a handout. It’s all of us. I wonder what’s going to happen after the November election.

    The stonk market is a wealth generator in the same way that a casino is, i.e. it isn’t.

    I am not defending New York state, it is full of criminals of all sorts.

    But really, how does the NY stock exchange generate anything? What do they produce?

    Goods? Nah. Services beyond pushing paper? Don’t think so. Dividends beyond a pittance? Nope.

    Someone who is still clinging to the glory days of this Crony Capitalist nightmare please come school me.

    Before the rampant stockifying of the markets, investments used to be made kind of like that show Shark Tank. You buy a stake in the business and rise or fall with it. Seems better than shorting it or buying it with the express purpose of selling it without dividends.

    Wall Street is in reality an enormous international slave market, or more properly a gigantic clearinghouse for all the regional international slave markets.

    Labor arbitrage is a form of slave-trading.
    Commodities arbitrage is, by and large, a form of slave-trading.
    And of course, usury, debt peonage and rent-seeking are classically-defined forms of slavery.

    It used to be that the slow speed, obfuscating tendencies, and inefficiencies in old-fashioned analog information exchange concealed the fact that all these types of transactions are really just various species of slavery. But now with lightning-quick digital information processing, the true nature of a fully monetized and financialized globalist system is exposed.

    Oh, and look who’s in charge of Wall Street — the people with the world’s longest continuous institutional and in-house experience in slave-trading and slave monopolies. Who’d-a thunk it?

    The United States government no longer receives direct taxes from the states, so it is inaccurate to say that “the government lives off of taxes from states such as New York.”

    It’s more accurate to state that the federal government receives a disproportionate amount of tax revenue from individuals living in states such as New York. You can thank progressive income tax rates for that. The steeper the rates, the more disproportionate the share of federal tax revenues that come from such states. But no, the state government of New York is not sending funds to Washington DC.

    And since Wall Street and the headquarters of multi-national corporations are largely responsible for those high New York income taxes, the income is actually coming from the rest of the USA, from which New York grabs a sliver from every transaction. But what does New York actually produce that the rest of the country buys? Very little, other than media. So just think of those high federal income taxes paid by New Yorkers as a slice from the slivers paid by the rest of the country for financial transactions

  53. O/T, this was the 2006 response of several doctors to the lockdown strategy being kicked around in DC after it had been cooked up by a math modeller’s 14 y.o. daughter as a science project.

    Political leaders need to understand the likely benefits and the potential consequences of disease mitigation measures, including the possible loss of critical civic services and the possible loss of confidence in government to manage the crisis.

    Don’t say the politicos weren’t warned.

    Source: http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.552.1109&rep=rep1&type=pdf

    Their conclusion, and remember, these are doctors:

    An overriding principle. Experience has shown that communities faced with epidemics or other adverse events respond best and with the least anxiety when the normal social functioning of the community is least disrupted. Strong political and public health leadership to provide reassurance and to ensure that needed medical care services are provided are critical elements. If either is seen to be less than optimal, a manageable epidemic could move toward catastrophe.

    [MORE]

    A few more gems:

    School closures also raise the ques- tion of whether certain segments of society would be forced to bear an unfair share of the disease control bur- den. A significant proportion of children in lower-income families rely on school feeding programs for basic nutrition.

    First, hospitals must protect their own staffs from infection and avoid becoming “amplifiers” of disease. Historically, hospitals have often accelerated the spread of contagious disease because of the presence of highly contagious patients and their close proximity to the medical staff who care for them and to other patients who are ill and vulnerable to infection.31 Modern hospi- tals are not designed to accommodate large numbers of highly contagious patients, and special measures, includ- ing cohorting of patients, adjustments to HVAC systems, and use of personal protective gear, will need to be made to protect healthcare workers and patients from infection.

    It has been suggested that alternative care sites, such as gymnasiums and armories, could lessen the demand on hospitals.10,34 In 1918, such alternative care facilities were set up in many cities. However, patients housed in alternative sites received little more than food and water. Such sites realistically would represent alternatives to home care, not hospital care, given the practical prob- lems of safely managing services such as respiratory sup- port, intravenous medication, oxygen, and the like out- side of a hospital setting.

    Despite this recommendation by experts, mandatory large-scale quarantine contin- ues to be considered as an option by some authorities and government officials.35,43
    The interest in quarantine reflects the views and condi- tions prevalent more than 50 years ago, when much less was known about the epidemiology of infectious diseases and when there was far less international and domestic travel in a less densely populated world. It is difficult to identify circumstances in the past half-century when large-scale quarantine has been effectively used in the control of any disease. The negative consequences of large-scale quarantine are so extreme (forced confine- ment of sick people with the well; complete restriction of movement of large populations; difficulty in getting critical supplies, medicines, and food to people inside the quarantine zone) that this mitigation measure should be eliminated from serious consideration.

    It is reasonable to assume that the economic costs of shutting down air or train travel would be very high, and the societal costs involved in interrupting all air or train travel would be extreme. Shutting down public trans- portation for an extended period is not an option in many cities. In New York City, an average of 4.7 million peo- ple ride the subway each weekday;49 the Los Angeles Metro averages 1.3 million riders daily.50

    In the event of a pandemic, atten- dance at public events or social gatherings could well de- crease because people were fearful of becoming infected, and some events might be cancelled because of local con- cerns. But a policy calling for communitywide cancella- tion of public events seems inadvisable.

    In previous influenza epidemics, the impact of school closings on illness rates has been mixed.2 A study from Israel reported a decrease in respiratory infections after a 2-week teacher strike, but the decrease was only evident for a single day.51 On the other hand, when schools closed for a winter holiday during the 1918 pandemic in Chicago, “more influenza cases developed among pupils . . . than when schools were in session.”2,52

    You are saying this sarcastically, but people of color do carry a historical burden. One that white people should acknowledge and try to lessen. Most white people realize this. YOU, Steve and many here are in the minority.

    It is interesting that Steve NOTICES Vice articles in order to mock, but does not notice the work of people like Seth Abramson and Max Boot who have proved beyond a reasonable doubt that the current President of the United States is colluding with a foreign power, Russia.

    Steve’s lack of noticing the much more important topic of PRESIDENTIAL TREASON is puzzling. It makes one wonder about his seriousness.

  64. Funny. There are sections of Philadelphia and Reading that suggest otherwise. All inhabited by only various shades of brown people.

  65. Jack D says:

    First of all, although the headline says “People of Colour” , if you read the article they are talking mostly about Women of Colour. Grief is OK for women but is not a very manly emotion.

    There is one anecdote in the story involving a man that is unintentionally revealing:

    For many people of colour, their experiences with climate grief propel them into activism and politics. Andom Ghebreghiorgis, Congressional candidate for New York’s 16th District, recalls a trip he took to see his family in Eritrea in 2017, travelling from the capital Asmara to Keren.

    “We were leaving the Highlands and the mountains, going towards lower lands. My uncle was pointing out trees that another one my uncles—when he was governor of the area about 20 years ago—had planted as a reforestation effort,” Ghebreghiorgis told me. “But there weren’t many trees anymore. It was brown everywhere, and almost the entire land had turned into dust.”

    This is surely whitey’s fault. Droughts in Africa never happened before whitey came on the scene.

    If I had to guess, Ghebreghiorgis’s family was on the losing side of some 3rd world tribal war and as a result we get to experience the joy of him kvetching about how white people are ruining the world right here in the USA. If his side had won the civil war then Ghebreghiorgis would be back home cruising around in a Mercedes or Range Rover and lording it over the losing tribesmen but as a consolation prize he gets to run for Congress in the US.

  67. While we’re on the subject, a celebrity chef recently went through a struggle session after she dissed the success of another wealthy celebrity chef and Marie Kondo in an interview. To the Washington Post writer below, the problem wasn’t that the chef was ungracious and hypocritical in the interview, but that she didn’t go after white men instead, and committed racism such as declining to call her coconut turmeric chickpea stew a curry.

    This wasn’t only a woman tearing down other women; it was a white woman tearing down an Asian and an Asian American woman when she had plenty of paler or maler sellouts to choose from.

    Roman’s recipes exist within a tradition just as troubling as her recent comments: what’s often called culinary appropriation, or as critic Roxana Hadadi put it months ago, “colonialism as cuisine.”

    The problem isn’t exactly that white recipe developers are making money off of brown food, though they are. The problem is that they’re making money off of brown food by, essentially, gentrifying it. There’s a worthy conversation to have (and it’s being had) about what license chefs have to tweak other cultures’ cuisines to please the delicate Caucasian palate. But the beef here is more specific: It’s about the license chefs have to erase those cultures from the cuisine altogether.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/05/13/rise-fall-alison-roman/

    So now we’re at “columbising”/colonizing recipes, food/culinary appropriation, the “exhausting prevalence of ethnic erasure in popular food culture”, and…brown food???

    Correction… the federal government lives off the taxes of individuals and corporations domiciled in New York, California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, etc. The states themselves don’t contribute to the federal pot (even though progressives try to state it that way). Those states also happen to fleece those same individuals and corporations at a high rate. It’s starting to fall apart though… there’s less reason to be domiciled in a high tax state (especially without the SALT deduction), and those states are losing their tax base, sometimes slowly, sometimes rapidly.

    Also within her boyfriend’s capacity to not drive over the speed limit and not to mouth off to a cop when he is stopped. But I guess she knows her boyfriend better than you do.

    It’s interesting that she realizes that in the incidents that end with a cop shooting a black person, the black person has often contributed. Yes, it starts off with the black person speeding or driving with an expired inspection sticker. I confess that I have been pulled over for these things a couple of times in my life, but never once did it end with my being shot by the cop, and not just because I’m not black. When the cop stops me I’m polite and I hand him my license and registration, etc. and don’t mouth off to him or refuse to comply with his reasonable requests – this is just common sense when dealing with authorities, especially ARMED authorities. But black people sometimes seem incapable of submitting to lawful authority. They just HAVE to mouth off to the cop or exhibit oppositional behavior and it sometimes escalates from there.

The Eskimos are stoic and ingenious people, making the most of what they could hunt or catch or find. I would also call them people of color.

    -Lights on inside the car
    -All windows rolled down so he could see inside
    -Hands on the wheel
    -Set belt buckled
    -Engine turned off

    When he asked me why I did all that I told him I understood his job was a dangerous and thankless one and I wanted him to feel safe and comfortable. When asked for documentation I asked him if I could undo my seat belt and reach into my pocket. I kept my other hand on the wheel.

    I was polite, “yes officer, no officer “, considerate and followed his instructions TO THE LETTER. “I was sorry I was speeding, I just did not realize it blah blah blah” . Like you, that is how a smart white man relates to a black police officer. I never got a ticket just a warning.

    It’s more accurate to state that the federal government receives a disproportionate amount of tax revenue from individuals living in states such as New York.

    Exactly. Our tax system is super top-end loaded. In 2015 (as one example), the 0.1% top earners paid 20.4% of all taxes. Basically, a few billionaires probably equals many millions of lower income earners. E.g. “taxpayers with incomes below $30,000 filed nearly 44% of all returns but paid just 1.4% of all federal income tax.”

    So the 0.1% pays like 15 times more taxes than the bottom 44%. And where do billionaires tend to live? In blue state cities like New York. So all this “you hillbilly deplorable states leech off the blue states!” is a meaningless statement, which doesn’t prevent it from being used like a bat to the heads of red states by the media. Basically, if a few billionaires left New York City and moved to some “net receiver” red state, it could flip that state from net-receiver to net-payer.

    None of this says anything about the average person in a given state. I would like to see the net-payer / net-receiver numbers calculated after removing the top 5% of incomes.

    Michael Moore’s new film on “green energy” was an eye opener.

    The so what of it for me is his observation that “green” isn’t either free or clean, particularly the later.

    Most specifically, that 1/2 of all renewables are biomass based. Which include the wasteful ethanol boondoggle. That plus burning trees and garbage, which are dirty as hell. Roughly equivalent to coal or what I would label coal 2.0. It is only carbon neutral in the sense that plants originally absorbed carbon. But corn uses large nitrogen inputs. And trees burn up 40 years of input, no?

    Their pet forms, solar and wood, are heavily subsidized and unreliable. As well as dirty in there own ways.

    But a lot of the film was cultural marxism.

    But they have tried to conflate renewable with clean. Sustainable with clean. While burning anything other then methane is inherently dirty.

    As a now retired CPA who had to deal with a few non residents of NY who had to pay NY and NYC income taxes, I can tell you they are very ruthless. Anyone with any W-2 income reported to NY or NYC (both have their own very steep income taxes) will be eventually dinged for those taxes, if they are more than the "under taxation limits" which are pretty low.

    I had one high income client working for a major investment firm, who only had periodic meetings there. But that firm was based in NYC and evidently went through a manic audit by local tax authorities. He had to pro ration his income based on the Outlook calendared days in meetings in NYC versus total days. Even after he quit and was receiving deferred compensation, they went back to the original years' that were deferred for those! He could offset his state income taxes from the amounts paid in NY, but the feds no longer give you any deduction for state income taxes.

    The definitive case for states not taxing independent contractors doing work for NY based firms was won by a KY based IT professional who never even visited NY/NYC. NY/NYC wanted to tax his KY income from that source! But the NY Supreme Court (called something else there, for some reason) decided that was a grab too far. No wonder visiting medical professionals are getting hit. And by all means don't have any real estate in your name there. That opens up a whole can of "residency" worms. This is a neo Communist state living among us.

    Locked in, I watched Cuomo’s pressers intently. As the deaths in nursing homes mounted he responded to a few timid question by citing regulations that “required” the operators to admit covid patients. He insisted the nursing homes were so obligated in the face of evidence that the homes could not protect patients and staff and were asking their covids to be admitted to the unused beds in Javits or on the Comfort. His Health Dept refused. He got no pushback from the tame Albany press on this or any matter. Over the weekend he was again asked and went into a long soliloquy which in essence said no one was responsible and old people die. He shut down that line of question immediately.

    I thought it was worth watching, lots of good interviews with conservationists coming to terms with the reality of what happens when you try to replace coal, natural gas and nuclear with biomass burning, solar panels and mirrors, and wind power. Michael Moore doesn’t appear in the film.

    After you’ve seen biomass plants that not only burn entire forests but chipped tires and old creosote-soaked railroad ties, what happens after the short lifespans of solar mirror farms and the resources required to build wind turbines (nothing can be recycled), “clean, renewable energy” doesn’t seem so clean or even renewable, especially if you’re trying to scale it up to supply the energy needs of the United States.

    On the down side, the film doesn’t really offer any engineering response with hard numbers. I can tell you that where I live, poor people are going to be asked to support a cost increase that is due to the high cost of renewable energy plants when they could enjoy the same power from an efficient natural gas plant at a lower cost.

    I’ve seriously thought about trying to become a right-wing comedian, but the problem is you have to be funny first. 😉

    Norm MacDonald is the most successful conservative comedian. He has the dexterity off a talented surgeon with a scalpel. He walks the line a lot, and is usually successful in that he makes conservatives and liberals laugh. Until recently. He went a “retard” too far. Quietly cost him his new talk show he’d been working towards for 5 years prior. Damned shame, but funny while it lasted.

    You have a point that people tend to get confused and assume groups they don’t hate are on the same side, sometimes with comical results if they’re far enough from your vantage point. I recall reading a comment on some Eastern European nationalist video that the USA was just a puppet of the Catholic Church. Or all the Commie-Nazis you occasionally see as villains in American productions. (Yes, I know about National Bolsheviks in Russia.)

    “In 2004 the Los Angeles Times reported that David Gelbaum, an American businessman focused on green technology who donated at least $200 million to the Sierra Club, warned Carl Pope (Sierra Club’s executive director) that his donations were contingent upon how the club handled the issue of immigration.

    “I did tell Carl Pope in 1994 or 1995 that if they ever came out anti-immigration, they would never get a dollar from me,” the Times reported Gelbaun had said.”

    Personally I always had a bad taste for the Sierra Club. To my mind they were/are in large part just another “pro anti-white” organization. Back in the ’80’s the parents of a few freinds/acquaintances drilled into their childrens heads that the Club’s mantra of overpopulation was sacrosanct.

    De Blasio has also said that he will not fire the Health Commissioner who told a police official that she didn’t give two rats’ asses about his cops. (The police were asking for 500,000 masks.)

    I didn’t think I could be surprised by City Hall anymore, but that one surprised me.

    Environmentalism became the state religion. Without any federal incentive programs or grant monies, it could shrivel up and die – and climate change could go back to being weather.

    Over decades, environmentalism became the state religion. Without any federal incentive programs or grant monies, it could shrivel up and die – and climate change could go back to being weather.

    Ghost, thank you and I need to let this germinate in my mind. Life before microaggressions, when was that. 1619?

    These kinds of posts of all massive, massive grievances of people who did not grow up in the USA (2nd gen), Switzerland, Norway, New Zealand, etc., are always about inequities…but of what, exactly? hahhaaa – they can never answer that question because fate is fare; luck is luck. It is always easier to blame other people than to look at your own weaknesses, hubris.

    53 million sounds about right. I believe I’ve encountered all of them on my travels, and nothing personal really but I’m sick to death of them. A few million, I could tolerate but they’ve completely flooded every sight worth seeing around the entire globe. Not to mention the bugs they bring with them. We won’t mention that.

    Do gay dudes refer to themselves and their buddy as “wife”?

    Perhaps they don’t want to advertise who’s doing the pitching and who’s doing the catching, IYKWIM.
