EPA Chief: Global Warming Holding Back Millions of African-Americans
Posted By Daniel Greenfield On April 30, 2014 @ 1:37 pm In The Point | 37 Comments
Meet the new EPA chief. Even crazier than the old EPA chief. And the old EPA chief set up a separate identity for herself and gave it awards. And then left with an official very expensive portrait of her urinating into a brook.
But Gina McCarthy is showing promising signs of craziness.
Administrator Gina McCarthy attended an event Thursday at Clark Atlanta University hosted by the Hip Hop Caucus.
Rev. Lennox Yearwood, president and CEO of the Hip Hop Caucus, “argues often that climate change is the ‘lunch counter moment’ for the younger generation.”
It’s more like his 5-star restaurant moment.
The EPA chief encouraged black students, who are “most vulnerable to climate change,” to become “champion climate justice advocates” by supporting some of the FDA rules currently being pushed by environmental activists. McCarthy mentioned “greenhouse gas emission standards for new power plants that the agency released last fall, and the rules for existing plants” that are set to be released on June 1.
“Pollution is holding back millions of African Americans fighting for middle class security.” She continues, “Environmental justice is social justice.” McCarthy also says, “We have a moral obligation to act now.”
Sure. Black people are being held back by affordable food and gasoline. If only a carbon tax were to make these and many other things much more expensive, it would really move black people forward.
We have a moral obligation to make Al Gore richer and millions of Americans poorer. Anything else is racism.
