Zuckerberg uses “climate change” as a shield to cover for his obscene wealth

KAuia “Climate change” is just the handy branding for the uber rich to hide behind

Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook chief who deletes people to save The Earth, is also apparently working on owning a Hawaiian island by suing the hapless natives who were in the way. His holiday house on Kauai Island is apparently worth $80 million, is 57,000 square feet, and has 8 bedrooms and nine baths.

Mark Zuckerberg, Priscilla Chan pick up 600 more acres in Hawaii

Conor Skelding, New York Post

The Big Tech billionaire and wife Priscilla Chan snatched up 600 additional acres on the island of Kauai — and an existing online petition demanding that Zuckerberg stop “colonizing” the Aloha State is now well over 1 million signatures as of Saturday.

The pair purchased the land for $53 million from the local nonprofit Waioli Corp., according to Pacific Business News.

The couple now owns more than 1,300 acres on Kauai, known as the “Garden Island” for its extensive tropical rainforests.

The online petition, with 1,014,219 signatures, says, “Mark Zuckerberg is the sixth richest man in the world … and he is suing Native Hawaiians in Kauai for their land so he can build a mansion. He’s building a mansion to do what? Live in Kauai for two months out of the year? This is inhuman.”

Any normal billionaire, doing things like that, might find a HLM protest on his doorstep — burning down the guardhouse and butlers quarters and shouting “privileged”. Instead, the nastier Zuckerberg is to skeptics of climate change, the more the progressive left need him, no matter what Woke crimes he is guilty of.

It doesn’t matter how many private jet trips he takes, if he’s useful to the other parasitic power climbers, who cares?

In 2015, he was generously joining “The Breakthrough Energy Coalition”, and was committed to using his wealth to “invest in clean energy companies”. So the worlds sixth richest man who holds a vested interest in renewable energy is also man in charge of what people are allowed to say in the public square. What could possibly go wrong?

Facebook is investing in giant solar farms in Texas. 

I’m sure he won’t mind if critics on Facebook want to bag out solar power and campaign to get rid of subsidies for it.

We’d never let a Government Minister have that much power.

    Native Hawaiians have been getting in the way of a superlative telescope project atop Mauna Kea by claiming it is a sacred site and generally being legally obstructive – even though an offer has been made to close other telescopes up there so that no sacred land area is lost. Are they sincere or do they hope to be bribed off?

    Re their spat with Zuckerberg, can both sides lose?

    “SAN FRANCISCO — Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s chief executive, has cultivated relationships with China’s leaders, including President Xi Jinping.
    He has paid multiple visits to the country to meet its top internet executives.
    He has made an effort to learn Mandarin.”

    “Well I dunno” says the Crofter as he throws his bunnet at the dog in disgust…. “Another Local selling out the ‘inheritance’ of the area” . Aye indeed, also a Scottish problem and now we read that the chinese are / have bought up much of our “property” in UK-shire. Simply put: who is happy to sell to outsiders? A free world – but begins to build towards the end of our Civilisation as we have known and seen it over the past decades.
    What to do ? Much wringing of hands does nothing for it as does it against Covid and Climate issues.

    Zuckerberg is highly driven to personal achievement and that’s about where it stops, we can judge or speculate all we want on his life or persona but in the end he simply won’t care and continue to live out his existence as long as the mechanisms are there to allow it.

    As originally set out in 1992 at the Rio earth summit Agenda 21 is a blueprint for selected elites to become rulers of a world that is vastly transformed to what we know now, a population reduced then strictly controlled in centralized areas will provide for the elites who now have the entire planet as a playground.

    Make no mistake Zuckerberg has positioned himself as an elite and at only 36 he has a long future ahead so muscling his way to owing an Hawaiian island is just a warm up for what’s to came, oh and did I mention he doesn’t care?

    It will be easy for Zuckerberg and his cronies to spin this. Balance the carbon emissions from his mansion (and trips to it) with Facebook’s solar farm investment. He’s probably going to install a hectare of solar panels on the roof of the joint or use the geothermal forces very abundant in Hawaii. He appeared to be one of the “fortifiers” in the recent US election, but he was probably defending his business from Trump playing around with Section 230. ( ??, that US legislation which protects social media from being labelled publishers) It’s all the stuff he’s investing in that we don’t hear about, that’s probably the real worry.

      It is the censorship that is the problem.

      And the hypocrisy….. The 1300 acres on the island of Kauai… is a toy to Zuckerberg. And so are we.

      Real Environmentalism/Fairness …… Is each person only taking what they need and limiting/managing the damage to the planet in their choices. There are 8 billion of us.

      One person cannot justify taking 1300 acres of natural land (in a very special limited environmental which should be shared)…. taken away to build a toy mansion, special buildings constructed to hold toys, guest rooms like a small hotel, massive pools, helicopter landing pads, and on …

      Building purposeless stuff that can only be sold to other billionaires… I guess I support the locals. There needs to be a common sense line as to how many empty houses/mansions a person can own…

      “The couple now owns more than 1,300 acres on Kauai, known as the “Garden Island” for its extensive tropical rainforests.”

    Is it possible to become a billionaire without situational ethics?
    It really helps if you you command an international tech network that has become one of the de facto arbiters of social ethics.

      Yeah, Joe made another stupid error.

      It’s funny, but let’s not try and turn every chuckle into a ‘gotcha!’

      Remember how stupid the media and Democrats made themselves look doing that each time Trump misspoke. We can reasonably infer that Biden meant ‘Not a penny more”. Admittedly that’s hilarious in its own right; the cluelessness is appalling.

    Why do you need an entire island to yourself ? We know why Jeffery Epstein had his – what do you think Zuckerberg wants his for ? When the current political and social policies reach their results islands are a good place to hide/defend….but no back door. Helping steering the world off a cliff won’t end well for those who have participated .

    Zuck would like to thank all the useful idiots for their support of the woke culture that has made him rich.

    Also, he seems unconcerned about supposed sea level rise that his army of useful idiots promote.

    Jo. is likely to have seen this; but for those interested in fight against Big Tech censorship,this is the latest.

    also our media is still playing dirty tricks, courier mail is censoring/via moderators,thing that are unpalatable to them ?

    Things are heating up in the fight against Big Tech censorship.

    The Good News: We hit a major milestone this weekend when Heartland’s climate realism video with John Stossel racked up a whopping 25,000,000 views on Facebook.

    The Gad News: Before we could pop the champagne, Facebook’s “fact-checkers” slapped a “partially false” label on the post.

    Very soon, Heartland will slap them right back!

    Try as they may, dishonest Big Tech tycoons in Silicon Valley won’t be able to stop the truth about climate change from getting out there.

    The Great News: Heartland is proud to report that Florida’s Big Tech censorship bill has passed the state legislature and is on its way to Gov. DeSantis’s desk. Our government relations team has worked tirelessly on this bill.

    This is a major victory! If signed into law, SB 7072 would provide a legal framework that other states can follow.

    We expect to encounter even more resistance from Big Tech lobbyists and their allies in the months to come.

    The closer we get to reining in these would-be digital overlords, the louder they cry.
    Graham, thank you for making this possible.

    Your invaluable support has made a real difference in the fight for our nation’s voice. With your help, we’ll ensure future generations of Americans can speak their minds without fear of retribution.
