The Fact Is Nothing Is Going to Be Done About Climate Change Until It Kills Lots of White People – Slog – The Stranger

Indeed, we can expect that, as climate change worsens, the government will spend more on white lives for no other purpose than to maintain the current economic order, which is largely structured to grow, endlessly, the profits of energy corporations. The market capitalization for just the gas and oil sector alone is over $1 trillion. They have the money. They have the data. They have huge political influence. And I’m going to say it like it is: In the light of this influence, Trump appears as no accident of history. It’s not a miracle that the racist somehow seems to never sink no matter what he says or does. You can always walk on water if the future of climate change non-action is the recognition and defense of white American lives.
