If the GOP really wants black and Latino voters, climate change would be a good start. https://t.co/rWKxHoRbqv

A good start to what? https://t.co/HYGy2HAtAu

Well, maybe it’ll make more sense if we read it:
There’s evidence that pollution is substantially worse in black and Latino neighborhoods, and yet it’s hard to recall any presidential candidate from either party speaking about this directly. With the notable exception of Richard Nixon, who established the Environmental Protection Agency, Republicans have spent much of the past several decades resisting climate change policy, environmental regulations or outright rejecting the science of climate change. And they can and probably will continue some variation of these themes. If nothing else, the party maintains friendly relations with industry and is a position that many believe at least can be sold as pro-job and anti-regulation.
But sacrificing that relationship with business (or at least making it less idyllic) by acknowledging climate change, proposing legislation to address environmental health concerns or the disproportionate effect that the location of many of the nation’s pollution-emitting facilities have on something like property values in low-income, predominantly black and Latino neighborhoods — that’s the stuff no one is talking about. And that’s the stuff that could attract new voters, new attention and help to resolve the party’s pressing demographic crisis.
Nope. Still stupid.
@TheFix I cant believe WaPo published tht garbage. Pollution is high in minority communities ergo they care abt climate change? Not the same

@TheFix =evidence pollution is substantially worse in black and Latino neighborhoods. Ever consider they also live in more urban ones too?

@TheFix lol climate change as a way to convert minorities to the GOP? That's pretty laughable.

How can you not laugh at the ridiculous notion that climate change fearmongering is the key to GOP success?
@TheFix Please explain exactly how ever increasing energy bills will help minority voters.
