Jane Fonda says 'there'd be no climate crisis if it wasn't for racism'

"Where would they put the poison and the pollution? They're not gonna put it in Bel Air. They've got to find some place where poor people or indigenous people or people of color are living."

85-year-old activist and Barbarella actress Jane Fonda went on The Kelly Clarkson Show on Tuesday to explain that "there'd be no climate crisis if it wasn't for racism."

"You're pretty active," Clarkson said of Fonda's social justice activism. She replied, "Well, you know, you can take anything, sexism, racism, misogyny, homophobia, whatever, the war. And if you really get into it, and study it, and learn about it and the history of it and everything’s connected. There’d be no climate crisis if it wasn’t for racism."

Fonda was appearing alongside co-stars of the new movie 80 For Brady, a film that follows four octogenarian women who challenge themselves at life's end to survive seeing Tom Brady and the New England Patriots play in the Super Bowl. 

One of Fonda's co-stars, Rita Moreno, asked Fonda, "How do you get to that, tell me."

"Where would they put the sh*t?" Fonda responded. "Where would they put the poison and the pollution? They're not gonna put it in Bel Air. They've got to find some place where poor people or indigenous people or people of color are living. Put it there. They can't fight back. And that's why a big part of the climate movement now has to do with climate justice."

"Thank you Jane," a woman shrieked from the audience at the Klute star.

In December of last year, Fonda said on MSNBC, "If there were no racism, there'd be no climate crisis. If there was no misogyny there'd be no climate crisis. It's part of a mindset. It's the mindset that looks at a woman and says, nice t*ts."

As Fonda told Clarkson, her social justice activism started during the Vietnam War. In July of 1972, Fonda visited Hanoi, located in communist controlled North Vietnam, with whom the US was battling on behalf of South Vietnam. Fonda volunteered for North Vietnamese propaganda that garnered her the nickname "Hanoi Jane" in the US.

As The Post Millennial reported in 2019, Fonda flew to Washington to participate in a staged arrest for the cause of climate activism.
