    The term “climate justice” sends chills up my spine. Very Orwellian.

  2. Andy DC says:

    One thing I have never understood is why people in the tropics have black skin (absorb heat) and people in cold climates have white skiin (reflect heat). It seems totally counterintuitive. But the premise appears correct, people with dark skin, which absorbs heat would suffer more from warming than those with white skin, which reflects heat.

      Naked white people can hide better in the snow from polar bears.
      Naked black people can hide better in the dark from lions.
      Look at who is the top predator, that might explain a few things.

      • Colorado Wellington says:

        The next evolutionary question will be who can hide better from ObamaCare. Naked white people or naked black people?

        • kbray in california says:

          Our “government” is now the top predator.
          They will consume everybody indiscriminately,
          whether chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, lemon, or latte.

      Melanin. It’s how the skin protects itself from UV radiation. Given where humanity came from, it seems reasonable that all humans were dark-skinned at one time.

    I’m a white boy with a tan. Am I in susceptible to the the dangers of CO2?

    • Colorado Wellington says:

      Most of us have farmers’ tan. Do our communities of arms, necks and faces bear the brunt of our dirty ways? And should we start organizing them or will they send a professional?

      Only when it comes in a can with other fermented ingredients such as hops, barley, or other cereal grains.

    Pretty decent article at Grist about the urban heat island effect if click the link within Steve’s link.

    • David says:

      Well Dr. John, since many dark skinned minorities live in the inner cities where UHI is at its greatest, then I think this supports the assertion.

  5. gator69 says:

    I think they should be more concerned about the Urban Violence Island effect.

    Just another way of playing the victim card.
