Pandemic’s Racial Disparities Persist in Vaccine Rollout
Communities of color, which have borne the brunt of the Covid-19 pandemic in the United States, have also received a smaller share of available vaccines. The vaccination rate for Black Americans is half that of white people, and the gap for Hispanic people is even larger, according to a New York Times analysis of state-reported race and ethnicity information.

I don't get your problem with people who have expertise?  Is it a problem with them, or that their conclusions differ from yours?

 
That's probably because I don't have one.  My meaning was that he is an ordinary person who does not articulate in a scholarly fashion more so uses everyday language. But you obviously would know that if you paid attention to many of the....gasp......scholars and intellectuals that I admire and post regularly.

Sad.  

In the period where climate change started to infiltrate the popular consciousness, a few analysts argued in favour of a No-Regret climate change policy.    The policy recognized the uncertainty around the full impact of climate change and the strong correlation between climate emissions and emissions that hurt, sicken and kill people.

Health-damaging and deadly small particulate matter emissions (PM<2.5) are highly correlated with climate emissions.  Reduce one, you reduce the other.

Lots and lots and lots of lower-income non-white folk live in urban areas and air sheds that host lots of health-damaging emissions.  A number of them live in flood plains and vulnerable coastal zones.  As a general rule, health outcomes are worse than those of white folks making non-white folks more vulnerable to air pollution.

Frankly, I am not too impressed with Karin Louise Hermes.   Seems to me that she does not have very sophisticated understanding of air pollution and anthropogenic climate disruption.  The fact that she is a woman and non-white are pathetic excuses.  

Broad social movements like the climate change movement typically demonstrate fewer barriers to entry (based on identity) than just about any other activity you could think of.    They tend to be cosmopolitan and multi-national.  If there is a sphere in which entrepreneurial initiative can come to fruit quickly, it is the modern technology-driven social movements.

Basically I am comfortable stating that this forum is at least 80% Caucasian ergo I can say that the gorilla glue in hair incident is clearly your fault:
 
 
 
 
"The demand for racism outweighs the supply"  This happened a while back.  Their is no way to future progress without a proper understanding of the present.
