We are the first generation to feel the sting of climate change, and we are the last generation that can do something about it.

It's a catchy phrase, but not technically accurate. No matter how bad climate change gets, we will always be able to do something about it. We won't be able to prevent it, but it's already too late for that anyway.

And for those who doubt we are feeling a sting, see my post from earlier today in the regular GW thread for just one piece of that pie.

This thread needs some humor, but I'll hold off.

Anyway


Jay has a battle on his hands, and as a white guy,  I'd like to see him respond to these...

( Both "clean energy topics" )


"Study Finds Racial Gap Between Who Causes Air Pollution And Who Breathes It"

"researchers found that air pollution is disproportionately caused by white Americans' consumption of goods and services, but disproportionately inhaled by black and Hispanic Americans"

https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2019/03/11/702348935/study-finds-racial-gap-between-who-causes-air-pollution-and-who-breathes-it


And...


"Self-Driving Cars Are More Likely To Run You Over If You Are Black"

"They found a bias within the systems, meaning it's less likely that an automated vehicle would spot someone with darker skin tones and so would carry on driving into them"
