Guardian: Global Warming Is ‘Racist’

sahel_region_africaJust when it seemed that climate change fantasies couldn’t get any more bizarre, the liberal UK newspaper The Guardian has launched the wild theory that global warming is essentially a “racist” crisis, perpetrated by wealthy whites against poor, vulnerable blacks.

The “reasoning” behind the outlandish hypothesis runs something like this. Begin with the unprovable premise that “Britain is the biggest contributor per capita to global temperature change.” Next, assume that Britain “is also one of the least vulnerable to the effects of climate change,” whatever that means. Finally, declare that “seven of the 10 countries most vulnerable to climate change are in sub-Saharan Africa.”

Et voilà, climate change has just become a racial issue, wrought by selfish white people on unsuspecting blacks.

If The Guardian’s three assertions about global warming were all true, it still wouldn’t make climate change a racial issue, of course. “Race” here would be completely incidental—rather than causal—to the phenomenon.

But the fact is that none of the three assumptions has been or even can be proved. The Guardian, and many others like it, simply rely on people’s readiness to believe in global warming and its alleged human genesis as an irrefutable article of faith.

But since global warming theories are aimed at guilting wealthy nations into paying compensation to poorer nations for their supposedly unequal share of blame in generating climate change, it only makes sense that sooner or later someone would attempt to make climate change a matter of racism.

Enter The Guardian.

In its article, the newspaper ties its theory on climate change racism to the shutting down of London City airport Tuesday by the UK branch of the Black Lives Matter pressure group.

The aim of the assault on the airport, according to The Guardian, “was to re-centre the conversation around black lives, here in the UK” because “racial inequality is alive and kicking in Britain.”

One must assume that even in the surreal world of racist climate change black Londoners would be on the supply side of global warming rather than its victims. No matter. Since color seems to trump everything else, blacks in Britain can assume victim status on behalf of their brothers and sisters in the global south, afflicted as they are by climate change.

    At the current rate of cash burn the Guardian and the goofs that run it will be long gone
    and their propaganda pollution will be soon forgotten . Well at least before Al Gore’s prophesy of a summer ice free Arctic ever come true .
    The Guardian looks and sounds like someone who placed a bad bet.
    They are however a bell weather for the crumbling global warming hysteria .
    Desperate when the racist card gets played . Global warming causes racism. Who knew ? What causes stupid newspaper management ? A bad bet ?

    In the full Breibart report, there’s a SKY News video. It’s breathtaking. Breathtaking in that there wasn’r a single fact they got right. Not one. Worthy of the BBC.
