Climate Change Is Bad For Heart Health Or Something

And, since this really isn’t about climate or science, the writers at USA Today decided to make this about race and raaaaacism (article is behind USA Today paywall, using Yahoo News version)

Climate change, heat waves affect heart health, experts say. Here’s why that puts people of color at higher risk.

Martha Gabriel knows the effects of sweltering heat. For the last five years, Gabriel has been picking sweet potatoes, beans and tomatoes under the blazing South Florida sun.

One scorching summer day while working at a plant nursery, her heart began beating rapidly. Her breathing turned heavy, and she felt faint.

“I didn’t want to go home. I needed to work and buy food. I didn’t want to lose hours,” Gabriel, 41, said in Spanish through an interpreter. Gabriel is pregnant and has prediabetes. She worries for the health of her heart, her baby as well as her husband, a landscaper.

A few years ago, Jose Delgado, a 72-year-old farm worker who also picks sweet potatoes, had a health episode in Homestead, Florida. During a hot day in May, his vision suddenly started to blur, and his muscles cramped. He had a throbbing headache.

OK, so, two people who work out in the hot sun in Florida. Did you know it gets hot and humid in Florida? Sounds like people should be drinking plenty of water and weren’t.

The climate continues to warm and the nation has been enduring record heat waves. People of color disproportionately suffer from excessive heat, and the health outcomes linked to it, experts say.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study found Indigenous people had the highest rates of heat-related deaths, followed by Black people.

Researchers are finding that extreme heat and air pollution have major effects on cardiovascular health, and heat-related deaths and hospitalizations have been linked to cardiovascular disease.

If they can’t deal with a slight 1.5F increase in the average global temperature since 1850, there’s something else at play, and, instead of looking at the climate crisis scam, perhaps the time would be better spent figuring out why Native Americans and blacks have much worse heart health.

Black people are 30% more likely to die of heart disease than white people, according to the CDC. Hispanic people are more likely to have risk factors for heart disease such as obesity and diabetes than white people.

Similarly, Indigenous people are more likely to be obese and have high blood pressure, 50% more likely to be diagnosed with coronary heart disease than white people.

So, maybe working in the summer heat isn’t the best thing for them, regardless of a slight warming. Heck, more soldiers died of heat stroke in the Battle Of Monmouth than wounds because of a heat wave, during the Little Ice Age.

These conditions, combined with lack of access to health care and other resources, put sufferers at higher risk of heat-related illness, Dr. Catherine Toms, a physician and committee member at the Florida Clinicians for Climate Action, said during an online seminar. Pregnant people like Gabriel are also at higher risk.

It’s always interesting that the climate cultists and Progressive movement in general always think that People of Color are too dumb and poor to get things like healthcare, and must be protected by the Helpful Hand Of Government.

A recent study published in Nature Communications found in major U.S. cities, the average person of color lives in a census tract with hotter temperature indicators than census tracts with mostly white people in almost all 175 of the “largest urbanized areas” in the country.

Well, that’s where Democrats want black people, stuck in urban plantations. The Democratic Party was the party of slavery and racism and all the other things, they just switched how they do it in the post-Civil Rights era, doing it while pretending to be benevolent.

Redlining generally refers to a discriminatory practice, often in housing, that denies services to residents of certain areas based on race or ethnicity. In more than 100 U.S. cities, redlined communities had hotter summer surface temperatures than non-redlined neighborhoods, according to an analysis published in Climate.

Are white climate cultists willing to switch places with the People of Color?

And, let’s be honest, this is the climate cult taking advantage of medical issues to push their cultish beliefs.

    Human beings have adapted to live everywhere from the frozen Arctic, to scorching deserts, to humid, steaming jungles. Yeah, it gets hot in Florida, but nowhere near as hot as in the Amazon jungles or African or Middle Eastern deserts. Two people experiencing problems in the hot Florida sun does not mean it is significant.

    George Soros? The man, the myth the accused.

    George Soros Bet Big on Liberal Democracy. Now He Fears He Is Losing.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/17/magazine/george-soros-democrat-open-society.html

    George Soros’s OPEN SOCIETY has been banned from conducting business in 8 nations. Russia, China, Hungary, Poland, Macedonia, Turkey, Philippines and Pakistan.

    If you do a fact check they claim people are saying George himself is banned from these countries.

    While some of Soros’ organizations and charities have been prevented from operating in certain countries, Soros himself has not been banned. A spokesperson for one of his organizations confirmed Soros has not been banned from any countries.

    Notice the song and dance around this to say it is false. HIS OPEN SOCIETY HAS BEEN INDEED BANNED FROM THESE COUNTRIES and the list is rising.

    HOW DO WE KNOW…..George Soros himself in an interview admits he is losing.

      You see Elwood I have more to fight for than just America. This kind of shit is happening around the world, and This is why I am moving back to Ecuador my home country and fighting for what is good and decent in my own country. In fact.

      We issue a Permanent Resident Card (Green Card) to all permanent residents as proof that they are authorized to live and work in the United States. If you are a permanent resident age 18 or older, you are required to have a valid Green Card in your possession at all times.

      This is how I have managed to live in and work in the USA for years. I have dual citizenship(Not with America) and yes before you run googling Ecuador it does provide for dual citizenship via Article 8 of it’s Magna Carta.

      The world was losing for a long time and then it began winning. Trump showed the world the way by restoring National pride in not only the USA but every nation around the world that was down on itself and its government. Brexit has led to several other EU nations wanting to leave the repressive authoritarianism of the EU.

      There is a war raging around the world that must be fought and I am needed elsewhere.

      Good bye folks and good luck here in the USA. I pray you succeed in saving the Republic that stands for so much good in the world.

        Best wishes.

      • Dana says:

        Ecuador is one of several countries which use the United States dollar as its official currency, so you ought to be going back to a country that is more economically stable and sensible than the idiotic ones et up with socialism.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        We disagree with the nature of the “shit” going on in the world. In general, the nations that have banned Soros’ organizations are authoritarian, not liberal democracies – Orban in Hungary, Putin in Russia, Xi in China, Duterte in the Philipines, Erdogan in Turkey, Duda in Poland (curious since Soros funded anti-Soviet Solidarity!).

        There has been a decided right-wing authoritarian shift and Trumpism is just another symptom.

          Sorry Rimjob, you can’t be serious about condemning authoritarian governments
          without including Joey’s junta.

          Oh wait, yes you can because you’re a dipshit.

    Well, that’s where Democrats want black people, stuck in urban plantations. The Democratic Party was the party of slavery and racism and all the other things, they just switched how they do it in the post-Civil Rights era, doing it while pretending to be benevolent.

    The push for integration of schools in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s was a social engineering push, primarily by liberals, Republican and Democratic alike, to homogenize our society, to get different races used to having each other as friends and neighbors, so that workplaces and neighborhoods would just naturally integrate over time. It didn’t work, because people just naturally choose to be with other people who are more familiar, and more similar, to themselves. The left, of course, blame evil white people for blacks not living in their neighborhoods, but the fact is that most black families want to live among other black families.

    With the population being just 13% non-Hispanic black, if every neighborhood was uniformly integrated, a black family could count on the next black family living, on average, roughly nine houses away, while non-Hispanic white families, again, on average, could count on having a non-Hispanic white family living next door or across the street.

    But, we do have some very integrated neighborhoods. I like to use Google Maps street views when documenting homicides in the City of Brotherly Love, and I see a lot of visibly integrated neighborhoods, with poor white people living next to poor black people. It isn’t race; it’s money.
