HHS Now Has An Office Of “Climate Change And Health Equity”

Like most things revolving around government and ‘climate change’, it won’t help either health or climate doom, just spread more money and give government more power over your life

HHS embraces new mission: ‘Climate Change and Health Equity’

One of the largest departments in the federal government says it has role to play in safeguarding Americans’ health from the effects of climate change, and argues this role is “firmly rooted in public health history.”

The Department of Health and Human Services is a $2 trillion entity that houses agencies like the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Food and Drug Administration.

Last week, the department’s new Office of Climate Change and Health Equity said it was ready to tackle the challenges of climate-related health impacts, just as the government took on sanitation standards and air pollution decades ago.

Those things are real. Anthropogenic climate change is barely real, mostly being natural and things like land use and the Urban Heat Island effect

“The incredibly broad effects of climate change and the many ways it worsens existing inequities in the United States must be met with a swift and sustained public health response,” wrote John Balbus, the interim director of the Office of Climate Change and Health Equity. “Our country helped eradicate polio and sanitized our cities. Now we must rise to meet another challenge.”

Balbus said part of that work is ensuring the health of “disadvantaged” groups that would be most affected by climate change.

“Climate change does not affect all of us the same way. Just as unsanitary urban settings at the turn of the 20th century primarily affected low-income and immigrant communities, climate change likewise often hurts disadvantaged groups most,” he wrote. As one example, he said if global temperatures rise by 2 degrees Celsius, “Black and African American individuals are 34% more likely to live in areas with the highest projected increases in childhood asthma.”

Isn’t it kind of racist to think that blacks aren’t able to take care of themselves without the Helpful Hand Of Government?

The Office of Climate Change and Health Equity says it exercises the “power of convening, coordination and collaboration” to advance “climate change and health policy” as it pursues “environmental justice and equitable health outcomes.” Among its priorities are identifying communities with “disproportionate exposures to climate hazards and vulnerable populations,” and addressing “health disparities exacerbated by climate impacts to enhance community health resilience.”

HHS has also established an Office of Environmental Justice within the Office of Climate Change and Health Equity, which focuses on the “people of color, disadvantaged, vulnerable, low-income, marginalized, and indigenous peoples” who are “disproportionately burdened by environmental hazards.”

Word salad and Woke. And thinking people of color and indigenous peoples are too dumb to run their own lives.

Meanwhile, I’m not going to bother with this (yet), because it is expected from the climate cult
