Actress Jane Fonda said that white men were the reason for the “climate crisis” over the weekend, demanding their imprisonment.

  • Far-left actress Jane Fonda claimed over the weekend that white men are responsible for the so-called “climate crisis” adding that they should be put in prison for the offense. 
  • “This is serious,” Fonda said. “We’ve got about seven, eight years to cut ourselves in half of what we use of fossil fuels. … Unfortunately, the people that have the least responsibility for it are hit the hardest — Global South, people on islands, poor people of color. It is a tragedy that we have to absolutely stop. We have to arrest and jail those men — they’re all men behind this.”
  • According to Fonda, “everything,” including racism and sexism, is connected to the “climate crisis.”
  • “You can take anything, racism, sexism, misogyny, homophobia, whatever, the war; if you really get into it and study it, and learn about it and the history of it, everything’s connected. There’d be no climate crisis if it wasn’t for racism,” the actress said.

“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 [is] at the bottom,” Fonda said.

  • In March 2023, Fonda suggested “murder” as a way to ensure that women have access to abortions during an appearance on “The View,” but later issued a statement claiming that her comment was meant as a joke.
  • “We have experienced many decades now of having agency over our body, of being able to determine when,” as well as “how many children to have. We know what that feels like. We know what that’s done for our lives,” Fonda said during the segment. “We’re not goin’ back. I don’t care what the laws are.”
  • When cohost Joy Behar asked Fonda what she would recommend besides protesting, Fonda suggested “murder.” 
  • “While women’s reproductive rights are a very serious issue and extremely important to me, my comment on The View was obviously made in jest,” Fonda said following the incident. “My body language and tone made it clear to those in the room – and to anyone watching – that I was using hyperbole to make a point.”
