Sad.  

In the period where climate change started to infiltrate the popular consciousness, a few analysts argued in favour of a No-Regret climate change policy.    The policy recognized the uncertainty around the full impact of climate change and the strong correlation between climate emissions and emissions that hurt, sicken and kill people.

Health-damaging and deadly small particulate matter emissions (PM<2.5) are highly correlated with climate emissions.  Reduce one, you reduce the other.

Lots and lots and lots of lower-income non-white folk live in urban areas and air sheds that host lots of health-damaging emissions.  A number of them live in flood plains and vulnerable coastal zones.  As a general rule, health outcomes are worse than those of white folks making non-white folks more vulnerable to air pollution.

Frankly, I am not too impressed with Karin Louise Hermes.   Seems to me that she does not have very sophisticated understanding of air pollution and anthropogenic climate disruption.  The fact that she is a woman and non-white are pathetic excuses.  

Broad social movements like the climate change movement typically demonstrate fewer barriers to entry (based on identity) than just about any other activity you could think of.    They tend to be cosmopolitan and multi-national.  If there is a sphere in which entrepreneurial initiative can come to fruit quickly, it is the modern technology-driven social movements.

Basically I am comfortable stating that this forum is at least 80% Caucasian ergo I can say that the gorilla glue in hair incident is clearly your fault:
 
 
 
 
"The demand for racism outweighs the supply"  This happened a while back.  Their is no way to future progress without a proper understanding of the present.

The Way Out of America’s Zero-Sum Thinking on Race and Wealth - NYT
The evidence shows we all lose when society’s overwhelmed by white resentment and win when we organize across our differences.

Ms. McGhee is the author of “The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together,” from which this essay is adapted.

Good piece in The Atlantic about Curt Flood. I'd heard the name but didn't know the story. Powerful and shameful.

She was the first Black person freed by Lincoln, long before his presidency. Her grave was paved over and her story hardly known.
