In metropolitan areas across the continental United States, one in every three economically disadvantaged Latino immigrant neighborhoods is exposed to harmful, cancer-causing air pollution—emanating from refineries, factories, car exhaust, and more—a disturbing new academic study reveals.
Yes indeed, the article tells it like it is. I have been saying for years that the green shift would happen a LOT sooner if smokestacks, pipeline compressor stations, and all other polluters, released their toxins directly into the most wealthy of neighbourhoods, that there would be wind turbines and solar panels everywhere and Republicans waving placards to save baby seals. Part of the brutality of centrist politics is the approval of sacrifice zones, as if some people don't really matter. Then off to church they go. ????????????????????????????
And if we had a genuine democracy of "one person one vote" over such environmental and economic decisions, instead of a corrupt "representative" democracy of "one dollar, one vote," such "sacrifice zones" would simply not be approved.
