The Climate Crisis (scam) Will Make Systemic Racism Worse Or Something

The Cult of Climastrology has really ramped up their use of black people as props as of late, eh? They’ve always treated blacks and other “minorities” as unable to protect or take care of themselves, but, hey, that’s what Progressives do

The climate crisis will make systemic racism worse, new research confirms

Extreme heat is not only a public health issue — it’s a racial justice issue, too. Now, new research suggests that the mounting climate crisis will only widen racial disparities. The findings lay bare generations of discriminatory housing policies and other forms of systemic racism that cause Black and brown communities to be highly exposed to deadly heat.

Climate scientists anticipate that heatwaves will grow more widespread, severe, and prolonged without sufficient intervention, worsening existing racial injustice, per The Guardian. According to data from the Union of Concerned Scientists disclosed exclusively to the outlet, U.S. counties consisting of fewer than 25% Black residents experienced an average of seven days per year of above-100°F temperatures between 1971 and 2000, while those with more than 25% Black residents had 18, more than twice as many. And if we fail to reach Paris climate accord goals by 2050, U.S. counties with smaller Black populations will have 36 extremely hot days annually on average, while those with larger Black populations will have 72.

The climate crisis has disproportionately harmed Latinx communities, too, according to The Guardian. U.S. counties consisting of more than 25% Latinx residents have typically experienced 13 extremely hot days a year, which could jump to 49 by 2050 if we don’t curb greenhouse gas emissions.

Um, what? Everyone else in those counties will have the same. And Latinos hate the term Latinx, which is essentially a word made up by white Progressives.

These disparities exist because of a practice that dates back to the 1930s known as redlining, which deemed communities of color “hazardous,” The Guardian explains. Redlining denied these neighborhoods essential services like healthcare, parks, and banking, while building chemical plants and other projects in them that harm the environment and human health.

With this history in mind, the emergence of heat islands in these neighborhoods — created by structures like buildings and parking lots that trap heat, as well as sparse greenery — comes as no surprise. The Guardian cited a study of 108 U.S. cities that found that redlined neighborhoods are up to 12.6 °F hotter than in non-redlined neighborhoods in the same city. Portland and Denver showed the widest temperature gaps between redlined and non-redlined neighborhoods. In Minneapolis, where police killed George Floyd, once-redlined neighborhoods are nearly 11°F hotter.

It’s interesting that most of these redlined neighborhoods are in areas run by Democrats, and Democrats work hard to keep the “low income” areas like that.

These neighborhoods often lack access to air conditioning, bus fare, and other resources that could alleviate the potentially deadly effects of extreme heat, The Guardian reports. What’s more, members of these communities have a higher risk of diabetes, hypertension, and other conditions that might make them more susceptible to heat-related illnesses.

It’s remarkable that no one ever seems to slam Warmists for thinking that blacks and Latinos are too dumb and/or incompetent to earn a living to be able to afford AC and bus fare.

In other words, racial injustice is no accident. Policymaking that forces communities of color to withstand extreme heat, among other environmental hazards — with few, if any, sources of relief — is just one way of perpetuating it.

    The solution is obvious. All Blacks and Hispanics in the USA need to be rounded up, put into boxcars and shipped to Canada… for their own good. Asians don’t seem to be effected by this. And, according to Leftists, their personal desires are irrelevant. Consent is not an element of community organizing.

    Like Africans and Mexicans aren’t used to extreme heat? It’s in their fukin DNA.
