Oh, good. We’re back to the days of blaming absolutely everything on racism. Barack Obama might as well just be president again. People didn’t get enough of this kind of nonsense for nearly a decade during Obama’s two terms in office, huh? Some of Joe Biden’s climate team claims that climate change (which still has never been proven) is racist. That’s not just crazy—it’s divisive.
From Free Beacon:
A pair of top incoming White House environmental aides has blamed “systemic racism” as a driver of climate change in an attempt to justify a government-led economic overhaul.
President-elect Joe Biden named progressive policy adviser Maggie Thomas as Office of Domestic Climate Policy chief of staff and climate advocate Cecilia Martinez as “senior director for environmental justice” on Thursday. Both Thomas and Martinez have cited racial inequality as perpetuating climate change, arguing that the Biden administration’s environmental policy must be centered on “racial and economic justice.”
“Unless intentionally interrupted, systemic racism will continue to be a major obstacle to creating a healthy planet,” Martinez said in a 2019 press release touting her “Equitable & Just” climate platform. “The only path forward is to design national climate policies that are centered on justice.”
Actually, it is the solution that’s racist. One example was The Clean Power Plan which was the centerpiece of Obama’s Climate Action Plan. A study commissioned by the National Black Chamber of Commerce after Obama revealed his plan, and published in June 2015 predicts the new regulation will leave minority communities with disproportionately fewer jobs, lower incomes, and higher poverty than whites.
The guy who ran a losing presidential campaign in 2004, who later went on to become secretary of state during the Obama years and completely botched the Iran nuclear agreement, and who was proven to be an idiot about the Middle-East by Donald Trump’s Abraham accords, is now slated to be Joe’s “climate czar.”
In other words, John Kerry will receive a salary to tell people that climate change is bad.
John Kerry thrilled at prospect of returning to his dream job of living in Central European luxury hotels while negotiating deals that are bad for America.

When you’re a Democrat proof isn’t needed…just giving your opinion is good enough for the mainstream media.
