“Climate proposals threaten pursuit of happiness and justice“. Paul Driessen of the right-wing “Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow” sarcastically tells us this:
Environmental justice demands that the United States address global warming, the gravest threat facing minority Americans, insist the EPA, Congressional Black Caucus and White House. Are they serious?
After the usual collection of denialist talking points, we get to Paul’s real concern:
Whether they take the form of cap-and-trade, carbon taxes, restrictions on drilling and coal mining, or EPA rules under its claim that carbon dioxide “endangers” human health and welfare, anti-energy policies frustrate the natural desire of poor and minority Americans to improve their lives.
Ah yes, the Republicans just want to help the downtrodden. Downtrodden corporations that is.
Thanks for the science, Anthony.
