On her trip to the United Kingdom, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi prioritized climate plans after mentioning the genocide of Uighurs and other human rights violations committed by the Chinese communist regime.
Pelosi was speaking at the University of Cambridge on September 17, where she prioritized climate change with China. “We have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue,” said Pelosi, according to Breitbart.
Pelosi acknowledged the situation in China is worsening:
“With their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province, with their violation of the cultural… religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China as well – they’re just getting worse in terms of suppression and freedom of speech.”
Having said all of that… we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is a leading emitter in the world – U.S., developed world too – but we must work together. We have to have a level of communication—whether it’s COVID, whether it’s terrorism, or whether it’s climate.”
She had earlier acknowledged several of the events in which the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) violates human rights, including the genocide of the Uighurs in Xinjiang province.
It is estimated that the CCP has built more than 1,200 concentration camps housing millions of Uighurs, Kazakhs, and Kyrgyz Muslims.
Witnesses claim that Muslim men are enslaved, women are sterilized and raped, and Muslim children are separated from their families and forbidden to practice any religion.
The United States, the Netherlands,, and Canada categorize as genocide the criminal manipulations against those who want to exercise their freedom of conscience and freedom of worship forbidden and persecuted by the CCP, among them the Uighurs and the practitioners of the millenary discipline of Falun Dafa.
Later, Pelosi also addressed an audience at the Chatham House organization, where she returned to the topic of controversial climate change, mentioning the economy.
“To President Biden, climate change is about jobs, the economy and security but above all it is a moral issue. He firmly believes that we have a moral duty to hand off the planet to future generations.”
President Biden began his administration by adhering to the Paris Agreement and eliminating tens of thousands of jobs by canceling ongoing energy developments such as the Keystone XL Pipeline. This resulted in the loss of 52,000 jobs.
For his part, Senator Steve Daines, a Republican from Montana, commented on the job losses caused by Biden’s decisions.
“(Biden’s action) reverses course and puts dependence back on the Middle East. That’s a terrible policy for our country,” adding, “He seems to care more about workers in Saudi Arabia than workers in the United States.”
Additionally, the Canadian company, TC Energy, sued the Biden administration for $15 billion in damages caused by the cancellation of the Keystone XL Pipeline through a lawsuit.
A group of 12 attorneys general jointly sued the Biden administration on March 8 for the executive order to address alleged “climate change,” arguing that in addition to not having the authority to do so, the proposed measures would destroy the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.
The executive order estimates the “social cost” of greenhouse gas emissions at $9.5 trillion.
The $9.5 trillion estimated by Biden’s task force is the cost Americans will have to pay due to industrial, agricultural, and regular lifestyle activity.
