Climate Crisis Might Maybe Cause Pregnancy Risks, Especially For Black Mothers Or Something

Here’s today’s scary prognostication from the Cult of Climastrology, which you can find all over the news. It’s also meant to hijack the current strife with black people

Climate Change Tied to Pregnancy Risks, Affecting Black Mothers Most

Pregnant women exposed to high temperatures or air pollution are more likely to have children who are premature, underweight or stillborn, and African-American mothers and babies are harmed at a much higher rate than the population at large, according to sweeping new research examining more than 32 million births in the United States.

The research adds to a growing body of evidence that minorities bear a disproportionate share of the danger from pollution and global warming. Not only are minority communities in the United States far more likely to be hotter than the surrounding areas, a phenomenon known as the “heat island” effect, but they are also more likely to be located near polluting industries.

“We already know that these pregnancy outcomes are worse for black women,” said Rupa Basu, one of the paper’s authors and the chief of the air and climate epidemiological section for the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment in California. “It’s even more exacerbated by these exposures.”

The research, published Thursday in JAMA Network Open, part of the Journal of the American Medical Association, presents some of the most sweeping evidence so far linking aspects of climate change with harm to newborn children. The project looked at 57 studies published since 2007 that found a relationship between heat or air pollution and birth outcomes in the United States.

First, air pollution is not the same as man-caused climate change. Second, the study doesn’t say what temperature range is optimal. Third, what about cold temperatures? Fourth, the cities with the worst air pollution are run by Democrats, who make up the bulk of the ‘climate change’ believers in the U.S. Fifth, there are lots and lots and lots of humans living in very warm areas around the world who get pregnant and have babies just fine. Sixth, most of the problems seem to revolve around air pollution, not warmth.

Seventh, it is interesting that this mentions the urban heat island effect. It’s surprising that the NY Times would even allow that to be mentioned, though they do leave out the word “urban”, because UHI shows that a goodly chunk of warming is localized, not global, as the climate cultists try to tell us. Yes, UHI is the fault of mankind, but it has less to do with global greenhouse gases and more towards buildings, roads, and other things that trap and hold heat and change wind flow, along with air pollutants that trap heat. If you take cities out of world wide temperature readings, you’ll surely find that the actual worldwide temperature increase since 1850 is not all that much.

Also interesting is the concern for black babies, since the #1 tenant in the Democratic party is abortion, and the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was a virulent racist who wanted to eliminate as many black babies as possible, and no group has abortions by percentage than black women. And since most of the worst air pollution is in Democratic Party run cities, well, #CancelTheDemocrats.

    So Teach agrees with tearing down public statues celebrating confederates. So what’s the argument? We all agree that the confederates were anti-American traitors and racists who viewed Black humans as property. Why do GOPhers defend the confederacy?

      He does? Where? When? Give us a link. If there is one.

      You mean the same way Democrats do today?

      And, no, we do not agree. They were hardly anti-American, any more than Franklin Roosevelt and Woody Wilson. They stood up for their Constitutional rights. That’s not treason.

      Why do GOPhers defend the confederacy?

      why do Democrats defend Communism?
