The leftist lunacy of The Washington Publish is aware of no bounds.
Washington Publish Local weather and Science reporter Sarah Kaplan wrote a local weather propaganda article masquerading as information. The story was headlined: “Climate change is also a racial justice problem.” Within the piece, Kaplan led readers off with the query: “What does racism imply for local weather change — and vice versa?”
Within the piece, she admitted that “Usually, I take advantage of this column to reply to questions from readers about local weather change.” She continued: “However — amid our ongoing nationwide reckoning with racism prompted by the unequal impacts of the covid-19 pandemic, the latest killings of African People by the hands of police, and 400 years of historical past — this was the query on my thoughts.”
OK, so that is an op-ed, not information. Welcome to the leftist idea of intersectionality — the place each agenda merchandise is tied to each different agenda merchandise.
In response to Kaplan, “If humanity goes to successfully deal with local weather change, scientists and activists informed me, it’s a query we have now to reply.” She cited Penn State meteorologist Gregrory Jenkins to push an asinine speaking level: “Racism is ‘inexorably’ linked to local weather change, mentioned Penn State meteorologist Gregory Jenkins, as a result of it dictates who advantages from actions that produce planet-warming gases and who suffers most from the results.”
Kaplan continued to tout Jenkins’s nonsensical concept: “In a course he teaches referred to as ‘Local weather Change, Local weather Justice and Entrance Line Communities,’ Jenkins traces this connection from slavery, which created the financial basis for the commercial revolution, to modern-day insurance policies that affect the place folks reside and environmental dangers to which they’re uncovered.” [Emphasis added.]
From the vantage level of the left, apparently, even the unconventional environmentalist motion was racist and sexist:
“The world of local weather activism has traditionally been dominated by white males, mentioned Dorceta Taylor, an environmental sociologist on the College of Michigan who research the historical past of the environmental motion,” [emphasis added.]
Earlier, Kaplan pivoted off of a strange study, which she used to summarize that “black and Hispanic communities within the U.S. are uncovered to way more air air pollution than they produce by means of actions like driving and utilizing electrical energy.” In contrast, Kaplan wrote that “white People expertise higher air high quality than the nationwide common, although their actions are the supply of most pollution.” [Emphasis added.]
