Say what? How did race get involved in the global warming argument? - Updated

Denying anthropomorphic anthropogenic global warming makes you racist?

This is me being shocked.

Just when I thought the anthropomorphic anthropogenic global warming debate could not possibly get any sillier, along comes this.

Climate change is no longer just an environmental issue. It’s now an issue of race, according to global warming activists and policy makers.

“It is critical our community be an integral and active part of the debate because African-Americans are disproportionately impacted by the effects of climate change economically, socially and through our health and well-being,” House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., said July 29.

Got that?

Global warming (despite being UNPROVEN) affects African-Americans more because they are perpetual victims. who can't get an even break from the Man. Only the Democrats can save them.

And if you dare question AGW or deny that humans can do anything about it, why, you are Racist.

Gee, do you suppose anyone told the people actually living in Africa? Or the Australian bush? Or maybe the American Southwest? How about the Asian steppes?

This "argument" doesn't have any factual basis, it's designed to suppress dissent and perpetuate victimhood.

Update - Regular reader BTHO pointed out on 24Feb2010 that the correct term is anthropogenic, not anthropomorphic.
