“Media Still Largely ‘Blind’ to Major Storms’ Devastating Impact on Poor Communities”
Of course they are - because WE still are !
"Dr. Bullard concluded that “when we talk about the impact of sea level rise and we talk about the impacts of climate change, you’re talking about a disproportionate impact on communities of color, on poor people, on people who don’t have health insurance, communities that don’t have access to food and grocery stores.” (last paragraph of the article).
I’m afraid both Dr. Bullard and WE are again missing the point.
When WE, as a society, turn a blind eye to the disadvantaged in our midst - WE hurt ourselves.
In fact, THEY (the poor) - are more whole than WE (the middle class).
WE still measure all effects by MONEY.
WE must CHANGE this way of thinking.
