  • Actress and outspoken liberal activist Jane Fonda this weekend seemed to blame “white me” for climate change, during a conversation at the Cannes Film Festival in France.
  • “We’ve got about seven, eight years to cut ourselves in half of what we use of fossil fuels, and unfortunately, the people that have the least responsibility for it are hit the hardest. … It is a tragedy that we have to absolutely stop. We have to arrest and jail those men. — they’re all men.”
  • Fonda also said in further answering questions from audience:  “It’s good for us all to realize, there would be no climate crisis if there was no racism. There would be no climate crisis if there was no patriarchy. A mindset that sees things in a hierarchical way. White men are the things that matter and then everything else at the bottom.”
