NAACP Claims Climate Change Is A Civil Rights Issue Because It Affects Minorities More

Man-made climate change was thrown out the window by John Coleman, who co-founded the Weather Channel, who shocked academics by insisting the theory of man-made climate change was no longer scientifically credible.

Instead, what ‘little evidence’ there is for rising global temperatures points to a ‘natural phenomenon’ within a developing eco-system.

So, since we all live on the planet how can one demographic be affected greater than the other? That’s exactly what the NAACP is now claiming to be the case.

As Written By David Vognar With Huffington Post:

Jacqueline Patterson [The director of  NAACP Climate Justice Initiative]: There are existing vulnerabilities for people who are in low-income situations whether it’s because they are living in conditions of poor housing stock or because they have homes that are in the floodplain or because they have mobility issues, because they don’t have vehicles and there is no community infrastructure. There are a range of different, preexisting vulnerabilities so that when things like extreme weather events come along, they are less prepared to be able to respond to them or to be able to survive them in some cases. There is also, as it relates to the shifting agricultural yield, there is the fact that low-income communities, as well as communities of color, are disproportionately food deserts and when nutritious food is less available in general then an already preexisting bad condition is made worse for those communities.

That’s another example. And certainly, we’ve seen with the extreme heat that there have been numerous ways that communities of color, for example, even taking out the income factor, are negatively impacted because there are certain health conditions that are more prevalent in communities of color, whether it’s heart conditions, diabetes and so forth. When there are these extreme weather events or extreme heat and the power grid gets overburdened and power goes out, then again disproportionately people who have special health conditions are negatively impacted or literally killed in the process.

So, in a sense, even climate change can be about inequality?
