Jane Fonda Wants ‘Climate Criminals’ Tried Like the Nazis at Nuremberg

Activist actress Jane Fonda suggested in an interview with Vice TV that “climate criminals” who run the fossil fuel industries in America and elsewhere should be tried for “crimes against humanity and nature” just like some Nazis were tried (and hanged) at the Nuremberg Trials following World War II.

Fonda told the interviewer, Michael Moynihan, that climate change is an existential threat like no other we have faced as a species. She said we should halt all pumping of oil and other fossil fuels immediately and find the people working in those industries good-paying union jobs elsewhere.

“Humankind has never been in this situation, where there is literally a ticking time bomb over everything,” she said. “Everything is subsumed under that — health care, national security, the economy — it’s all going to go out the window if we can’t address the worsening of climate change.”

The Nuremberg Trials were a series of military tribunals held in 1945 and 1946 in Germany immediately after World War II. In all, 199 former German officers and high-ranking members of the Nazi government were tried for crimes committed during the war. Of the 37 sentenced to death, 10 were hanged.

The people running such global behemoths as ExxonMobil and Royal Dutch Shell should face the same consequences, Fonda said in the interview.

“Who, in particular?” asked Moynihan.

“The people who run the fossil fuel industry. And, I might add, the politicians that they’ve bought off who haven’t got the gumption to stand up to it,” Fonda replied.

“So you want to see a Nuremberg Trial for climate criminals?”

“Yea, I would,” Fonda said.

Fonda, 81, is currently “working her muscles in the resistance sector,” as she puts it, by protesting climate change on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. and getting arrested for it every Friday. The Academy Award-winning actress has vowed to get arrested every week until January.
