Global Warming is Racist!

Timothy Birdnow

The Left has really outdone themselves, jumping multiple sharks with this one!

Yes, researchers are now saying Global Warming is racist! Or racism causes Global Warming, or at least imposes it on the poor and people of color.

From the article;

Jeremy Hoffman of the Science Museum of Virginia, and Nicholas Pendleton, a former student at Virginia Commonwealth University, also contributed to the study, which was published in the journal Climate on Monday, January 13th. The researchers examined the relationship between summertime , which were derived from satellite imagery, and historical housing policies, specifically 'redlining,' in 108 cities in the United States.

Neighborhoods with less and more concrete and pavement are hotter on average, creating 'heat islands.' In an earlier study of Portland, Oregon, Shandas and colleagues found that lower-income households and communities of color tend to live in heat islands. They found similar effects in other cities, and they wanted to know why.

To explore this question, they looked at the relationship between 'redlining' and surface heat. Beginning in the 1930s, discriminatory housing policies categorized some neighborhoods—designated with red lines—as too hazardous for investment. Thus, residents in 'redlined' neighborhoods were denied home loans and insurance. These areas continue to be predominantly home to lower-income communities and communities of color. While the practice of redlining was banned in 1968, this study aimed to assess the legacy effects of such policies within the context of rising temperatures.

The study found formerly redlined neighborhoods are hotter than all other neighborhoods in 94% of the 108 cities studied. In particular, the researchers found that redlined neighborhoods across the country are about 5 degrees Fahrenheit warmer, on average, than non-redlined neighborhoods. However, in some cities the differences are much more stark. For example, the cities of Portland, OR, Denver, CO and Minneapolis, MN showed the largest heat differences between redlined and non-redlined areas—as much as 12.6 degrees Fahrenheit.

"The patterns of the lowest temperatures in specific neighborhoods of a do not occur because of circumstance or coincidence. They are a result of decades of intentional investment in parks, green spaces, trees, transportation and housing policies that provided 'cooling services,' which also coincide with being wealthier and whiter across the country," said Shandas. "We are now seeing how those policies are literally killing those most vulnerable to acute heat."

Hey dipwads; housing with no air conditioning is EVEN HOTTER!

Yes, if you live in urban areas you are going to experience the Urban Heat Island Effect more than if you live in suburbia. But come on!

This is intersectionality. Tie multiple left wing concepts together into a monistic whole to make them unassailable.

And it also is about U.N. Agenda 21, which calls for just the kind of green spaces being bandied about here.

These people are nuts.

1 Another dirty little secret that nobody wants to talk about is that Sub-Saharan Africa (filled with black people) is hotter than Scandinavia (filled with pasty white people, except for the Muslims who are flocking in). So, Leftists: put THAT in your (crack) pipe and smoke it!
