Actually, with a couple of exceptions, whether you live near a traditional polluter doesn’t much affect how climate change affects you. At least in this cpuntry climate change will affect all of us more of less equally. We should not let efforts to fight climate change be derailed by arguments about local pollution problems in communities of color or of the poor. Emission from chemical plants or toxins released by. Oil refineries or led paint in your walls are important but they’re not primarily climate problems. Those are huge problems in their own right but won’t (and can’t) be addressed through greenhouse caps.
We need to cut carbon emmissions, period. Let’s not let other interests get in the way of that goal. The social ustice aspects can and should be addressed in other ways.
You, too, Governor Inslee!
