JPMorgan Chase & Co. CEO Jamie Dimon has called on governments around the world to forcibly seize privately owned land and property from citizens to “save the planet” from the “climate crisis.”
In a statement to world leaders, Dimon argues that the land must be repurposed and used for wind and solar energy farms “before it’s too late.”
According to Dimon, world governments should invoke “eminent domain” to seize private property from ordinary people and begin investing in initiatives that advance the World Economic Forum’s green agenda.
“At the same time, permitting reforms are desperately needed to allow investment to be done in any kind of timely way,” Dimon wrote.
“We may even need to evoke [sic] eminent domain – we simply are not getting the adequate investments fast enough for grid, solar, wind and pipeline initiatives.”
Eminent domain allows the government to forcibly seize private property as long as the owner is compensated.
“Massive global investment in clean energy in technologies must be done and must continue to grow year-over-year,” Dimon continued.
“To expedite progress, governments, businesses, and non-governmental organizations need to align across a series of practical policy changes that comprehensively address fundamental issues that are holding us back.”
