Ok, Now I’ve Heard Everything

Climate Change Hurts Blacks More

House Majority Whip Clyburn says

African-Americans ‘disproportionately impacted’




Climate change is no longer just an environmental issue. It’s now an issue of race, according to global warming activists and policy makers.
“It is critical our community be an integral and active part of the debate because African-Americans are disproportionately impacted by the effects of climate change economically, socially and through our health and well-being,” House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., said July 29.

The launch came on the heels of a separate report by the Environmental Justice and Climate Change Initiative (EJCC), which claims African-Americans are more vulnerable to the effects of climate change. EJCC describes itself as a “climate justice” advocacy group.
Though far less responsible for climate change, African-Americans are significantly more vulnerable to its effects than non-Hispanic whites,” the report says. “Health, housing, economic well-being, culture, and social stability are harmed from such manifestations of climate change as storms, floods, and climate variability.

Horry Clap, the sun is shining, therefore blacks are victims and it’s whiteys fault. And this is from one of the top elected officials in Washington DC. And if we were having Global Cooling they’d be victims because they are more suited to warmer climates. We can’t win folks. Anything. Everything. No matter what ... blacks are victimized by it.

“African-Americans are also more vulnerable to higher energy bills, unemployment, recessions caused by global energy price shocks, and a greater economic burden from military operations designed to protect the flow of oil to the U.S,” it (the report) says.

Right, because, don’t you know, all the white folks is secret millionaires. Because we get funding on the down-low from the zionists who actually run the world. There are no white people without jobs, on welfare, or doing low paying work. Nope, we all are wealthy trust fund babies. And what’s with this “and a greater economic burden from military operations” claptrap? Is he still trying to flog the worn out bullshit leftover from Vietnam that the black man is unjustly overrepresented in the military ... that wars are fought just to get rid of extra black men? That dog didn’t hunt in 1968, and it sure as hell won’t fly today in an all volunteer military. So just what are these “military operations” you’re talking about here, horseface?

The commission Clyburn helped launch claims Hurricane Katrina’s impact on New Orleans was a preview of how global warming will affect African-Americans.
“[W]hile individual storms cannot be linked specifically to climate change, scientists warn that warmer waters may foster-more intense storms,” the background paper on the commission’s efforts, authored by Michel Gelobter, Carla Peterman and Azebuilke Akaba said. “The flooding of New Orleans still highlights the vulnerability of the African-American community to types of extreme weather events expected with global climate change.”

Oh don’t get me started on that one again. I guess this statement means that we can expect looting every time it snows? Or maybe if Tuscon Arizona elects a black mayor he’ll stand outside the front door of the CopperTone factory and cry to the federal government to get some damn sunblock over here right now because the sun is shining? This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve heard all week. But wait, there’s more!

But the goals of environmental and race activists don’t include allowing investors to earn the benefits of putting their money into proposed solutions.  J. Andrew Hoerner, director of the sustainable economics program at Redefining Progress and a co-author of the EJCC report, told the Business & Media Institute that solutions to climate change should be designed in a way so investors don’t reap all the benefits.

The report suggested implementing a “fee, tax or allowance auction on polluters,” which was meant to “eliminate the financial burden on low-income and moderate-income households.This would pay for efforts to reduce global warming. Hoerner said that although it would cause product costs to increase, under his policy, the revenue from the “fee, tax, or allowance auction payment” would be redistributed to consumers to offset the higher costs.

Just as I thought. Another Socialist Robin Hood scheme. Take your money and give it to others. Empty the wallet of industry and give it away to the Pore ‘N Starvintm. Funny how the race baiters, the enviro-whackjobs, and the Dems all play from the same handbook. Well, sure, that’s because those three groups are often the same people, but still. Take your money: it’s the only thing they know, and they’ll use anything as an excuse to do it again.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
