TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY SUNRISE MOVEMENT ACTIVISTS LAUNCH GREEN NEW DEAL CLIMATE STRIKE!!!



Posted to compliment idyllic, local Autumn weather right now along with a DETAILED glimpse of local political action AND cowtown dedication to AOC . . .

KANSAS CITY ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVISTS RALLY FOR CITY HALL GREEN NEW DEAL AMID UPCOMING CLIMATE STRIKE!!!

In fairness, TKC IS BREAKING NEWS OF STRIKE DEETS and just a hint of logistical data. Recently, The Pitch offered a touchy-feely missive on the topic without much info. Still, their work deserves consideration as well:

Kansas City could be the first Midwest city to declare a Green New Deal

Now here's testimony and a glimpse of the citywide protest STRAIGHT FROM THE SOURCE . . .

Young people with Sunrise Movement Kansas City to strike from classes and workplaces as part of a global call for immediate climate action



Kansas City, Missouri, December 6 2019, -- Local students and young adults from all over the Kansas City metro area will host two separate actions across state lines on Friday, December 6th, as part of a nationwide effort that continues September’s record-breaking global climate strike. In Missouri, the Kansas City hub of the Sunrise Movement will join students as they walk out from classes and rally at 12:00 PM at Kansas City City Hall. Sunrise Kansas City and supporters will call for the City Council and Mayor Quinton Lucas to support an upcoming resolution for a Green New Deal for Kansas City.

WHAT: Kansas City youth from all over the metro area will participate in a worldwide strike demanding political support of a Green New Deal. The Green New Deal is a 10-year plan to transition our economy to 100% renewable energy while providing millions of good jobs in the process. Crucial to the Green New Deal is inclusion and respect of indigenous land and sovereignty, ensuring a just transition for communities on the frontlines of the crisis, protecting and restoring our planet’s biodiversity, and implementing sustainable agriculture . . .

WHEN: Friday December 6th, 2019- Rally at 12:00PM
WHERE: 12:00PM Rally at Kansas City City Hall South Steps 414 E 12th St, Kansas City, MO 64106
WHO: Sunrise Movement KC & More Special Guests TBA
WHY: On September 20th, 2019, over 700 Kansas City residents participated in the largest climate mobilization in Kansas City history and demanded a global response to the ongoing climate emergency . Many local politicians attended, including Mayor Quinton Lucas and Kansas City Councilman Eric Bunch, who both publicly signed the Green New Deal Pledge to support policies that transition the local economy to 100% renewable energy by 2030. In Missouri, young people with Sunrise Movement KC are demanding that the rest of the council sign the Green New Deal Pledge and will also push Lucas and Bunch to follow through.

Sure there will be some haters but it's really nice to see young people doing something other than video games and hookup apps.

Only the boomers will have a knee jerk reaction. In the end, these students want to help the planet. That's not such a bad thing.

^^^ Somewhat agree but I don't think the world is going to end in 12 years like AOC claimed. There are responsible ways to be an enviromentalist. I'd be happy if some of the people in KC would stop dumping their trash everywhere and littering.

It's all about small steps.

Who pays?

A Moment of Your Time Please said...

You can't force green stuff on people when the leaders who scream at us to do so are the biggest violators of what they preach. A good portion of these young people have no idea what it takes and the costs to implement their dreams would be. Right now most are students who pay nothing in to anything so long as someone else is paying the costs they are all for it. Soon as they themselves have to start paying for it they will scream bloody murder and claim it isn't needed.

What we need to do is force all those between the ages of 21 and 60 to pay an environmental tax of 5% of their earnings to fund all these programs they want to see in place. Once these activists have to start really paying for something you will see them disappear faster than the Chiefs Super Bowl run each year.

I'd rather them play video games than be a part of this level of brain washing. If they actually want to help they should go east of troost and start cleaning up the neighborhoods. They don't actually want to help the environment though. They want social media pictures and online clout. If one wants to help the city environmentally there are plenty of avenues to do so. Participating in a propaganda march is not one of them. Those participating in this are lost

This so-called “environmental Armageddon” is a fictitious construction cooked up by the left so we’ll spend all our time (or at least a half hour a week) changing out our light bulbs and flattening cardboard and completely overlooking their pinko/commie/socialist agendas.

The climate scam depends on fake temperature data, rewriting history, hiding the past, using flawed logic, and constantly lying to the public – day in and day out.

H.H. Lamb:

“It was after 2000-1500 BC that most of the present glaciers in the Rocky Mountains south of 57 o N were formed and that major re-advance of those in the Alaskan Rockies first took place.

“And at their subsequent advanced positions – probably around 500 BC as well as between 1650 and 1850 AD – the glaciers in the Alps regained an extent, estimated in the Glockner region, at about 5 times their Bronze Age Minimum, when all the smaller ones had disappeared.”

https://notalotofpeopleknowthat.wordpress.com/2014/05/13/hh-lambs-climate-history-the-modern-world-in-review-pert/

Glaciers ebb and flow, and always have.

The Hockey Stick is a LIE!

Al Gore is a liar (Just look at that ridiculous movie.).

Remember what your folks always told you. Follow the money. The "Climate Change" lie is ONLY about removing cash from your wallet and sending it to Washington D.C. so they can "help" us.

WAKE THE FUCK UP MORONS.

I always, always say, if you wait long enough people will tell you what they want.

AOC's Chief Of Staff---

"The interesting thing about the Green New Deal, is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all,” Chakrabarti said to Inslee’s climate director, Sam Ricketts, according to a Washington Post reporter who attended the meeting for a profile published Wednesday.

“Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing,” he added.

It's a lie.

No matter what your beliefs are you must admit that this is a political issue. Once you allow students to walk out of class to support a political issue you have opened up a pandoras box. Will the school districts allow climate deniers the same rights? How about those who believe in free markets? Should they have the ability to walk out of class or walk off their jobs to protest? Or do the districts just allow protests when it fits their agenda?

I think a lot of older people in KC don't care about the environment for practical reasons, they'll be dead soon and it really doesn't impact them. It's the same boomer mentality that screwed up the job market and the housing market.

Boomers are the real environmental disaster, they destroyed the U.S. political system and now they want to take the world down with them.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Chuck, these young people don't care what old, white drunks think about anything.

It's not likely that the whole world is wrong & only American Conservatives are right.

AOC's estimation of twelve years seems optimistic to me. I think that in three years we will reach the point of no return.

Anonymous said...

^^^ Wow. You're comments are usually somewhat relevant but this just looks like a barista spilled your latte. Sorry soy boy.

While Chuck is absolutely correct, the future probably lies with the Greens. I'm not sure how it could be otherwise, seeing as how the odious propaganda begins in pre-school, now taught by those who were themselves indoctrinated, and is reinforced so frequently that it comes to be viewed as indisputable and absolute truth.

A frightening percentage of those in the milliennial and younger categories would view questioning a single iota of climate dogma as the worst kind of heresy.

They're the new evangelicals . . . just as rabid as the old evangelicals, but with the power of media (social and otherwise) behind them.

chuck said...

Byron, so glad our epistolary efforts continue by way of TKC's eponymous venue. I see you're a bit tetchy today. Your Ad hominem attacks are prima facie evidence of your inability to argue with any semblance or reason the tenability of your position.

I picture you now, in front of your screen, knowing full well, that the money you are sending to that Nigerian Prince is going to be spent in a brothel on AIDS infected whores, but, you just gotta send it, cause, he is black and you know..., slavery.

To this point, your mindless predictability knows no senescence and at this age, will be your constant companion unto death.

I suggest a new hobby for you, in order to widen and expand your daily routine of perusing TKC in search of the validation my comments provide.

Perhaps starting up a TWITTER account for your neck beard might distract and enlarge your intellect to the point where our family pets didn't accurately anticipate everything you post.

And yet Byron has a point--especially about the old white drunks--except for the twelve years part. And that is REALLY weird.

11:34 NICE JOB! We all hate old white guys! I am stuck on an old white guy, but at least the old white guy that I am stuck on, very appropriately hates himself.

I am on the Twitter!!

Lock up any teacher who allows and encourages these children to leave class for "child abandonment".
Of course, it will be on Friday. Lazy teachers want the day off. Not one of them will be there.
The Communist Party has taken over the public education system.
Time for purges and show trials of school board members, school administrators, teachers.
All should be fired immediately and exiled to China if they do not recant.

Kansas City is already a green city. But it won't be for long if the politcos keep selling everything to developers and speculators who will destroy and bulldoze everything in sight.

Sounds fine and dandy until we have to rebuild the entire military because the climate agenda crowd want everything electric or green as they say, no way in hell can we spend the hundreds of gazillions of dollars needed for the military alone. It’s staggering the amount it would cost for just one thing let alone the entire fucking country.

Ship them to China and let them protest the numerous coal fueled power plants that are in operation, being constructed or are already planned. They no doubt will find the CCP most receptive to their Green New Deal demands. Many of the idealistic protesters will have the opportunity to learn to speak Uighur from their camp mates. Others will get to participate in the fall organ harvest.

Anonymous said...

Providing millions of good jobs? Of course, there are no specifics about these jobs because it's false. And there's no mention of the cost and how it will be funded because the cost is so outrageous Kansas City would probably have to have major increases in sales taxes and earnings taxes plus cut other programs to fund it.

"Quinton Lucas and Kansas City Councilman Eric Bunch, who both publicly signed the Green New Deal Pledge to support policies that transition the local economy to 100% renewable energy by 2030."

That my friends, is ridiculous. That's not the City were talking about...that's the local economy. That's no cars, no planes , no trucks, no heat, no nothing. "Stupid is as stupid does." Green new deal was never about climate, its about Socialism. Don't work but get paid. Pipe dream. From a lady with a 420 credit score on the Finance committee.

2:17 "Pants Shitting"?

Do you mean like in Venezuela, where uneducated brain dead fools elected Socialist 'leaders' like AOC and have to use their hands to wipe their asses?

Even if you fools elect, again and again the idiots you think, because they have "great tits" or hang around with Drake and NWA, you are right, we will be dead. The adults, will be dead.

Think about that.

You will actually have to live in a world, created by inferior IQ's with entitlement issues.

Should work out great.

By the way, there won't be any hot water either, so get in a little practice and start wiping your ass with your hands and cleaning it off in your mouth.

That's right, eat shit punk.

I hope they ban plastic first. Matter of fact, if their heart was really in it. They would stop using plastic tomorrow. Of course they would be naked and without any electronics, shelter or way of making a living. But you have to stand up for what you don't know jack shit about, or at least voice it and stand up waving ignorant banners for its support.

All anybody has to to look at is the Vladivostok cores which explains to any brainwashed idiot with an IQ over40 50,000 years of world climate. All this climate change scam is about is removing money from our pockets and placing it in theirs. Every scumbag commie government on the planet is all in on it to further impoverish already dependent people looking towards a thieving government for survival. Unfortunately the only action that will stop the commies in our country is their complete extermination through civil war. Only then will we be free from the criminal thieves that so glamorously call themselves “progressives”

100% renewable energy in 10 years does not sound realistic. You all do not even have the will to upgrade your sewage. i have not spotted a live crawdad in this town since the late 70s.

a childhood that does not include forcing crawdads and tadpoles to interact with you in the temporary waterfront housing communities you built for them is not a fun childhood.
