Thursday, June 20, 2019

According to the EPA's own analysis, the increased air pollution could result in as many as 1,400 deaths per year by 2030 and 15,000 new cases of upper respiratory problems. Federal data has also shown that the air is getting dirtier: Last year had 15 percent more days with dirty air than the average between 2013 and 2016.

That's literally how Rs think about it. The problem is that rich people have to breathe too. I guess they can used their R tax cuts to equip their homes with environmental systems like a space craft so they don't have to breathe that dirty air.

Rich people can afford to spend less time downwind of coal plants. Rich people can afford healthcare...

I just love how they ['the experts'] come up with numbers, just like telling us how many die from second hand smoke.

Yes, them and their science, math, studies, and stuff.

But you know better! You and your Junior High Education! Why one time you even beat the neighbor's chicken at checkers! And that chicken is darn good too...for a chicken.

You're just a science denier.
As your post shows, you actively try to deny science whenever science says things you don't want to hear.

SNOOF - Have no problem with science, just numbers that are an 'educated guess' which the validity is questionable/cannot be proven.

That's how literally every forecast you've ever read works, MSgt.
The "proof" can only come after the rule change is made, and the bodies start piling up.

Your problem is a moral one. If you agree with the scientists, it makes you one step closer to being a global warming beta ----. And you hate global warming beta cucks.

How you made E-7 is amazing. I guess critical thinking and logic were frowned upon in the Air Force, eh?

..coal pollution it could easily kill more than 1400 per year, just in the USA. About 1.6 million people in China die every year from polluted air. In China between 300 and 500 new coal power plants are planned by 2030. Coal is killing people in India too, yet both countries are exporting their designs to Africa. Lead releases are proven to cause mental retardation in children. But the orange sloth and his Republican thugs do not care.

So is yours, considering you have no problem shipping that pollution to China, India, and Africa,

Consider it your 'white privilege' not to choke on the air you breathe.

I don't consider shipping or logistics a moral issue.

Capitalism and racism go hand in hand.
This isn't news, and it hasn't been since blacks sold other blacks into slavery in Africa.
