Climate Today: High Flying Kerry, Patronizing Blacks, Eczema

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Let’s see what climate envoy John Kerry (he was in Vietnam, you know) is up to

US climate envoy Kerry meets with pope on climate crisis

John Kerry, President Joe Biden’s climate envoy, met privately with Pope Francis on Saturday, afterward calling the pope a “compelling moral authority on the subject of the climate crisis” who has been “ahead of the curve.”

The former U.S. Secretary of State told Vatican News that the pope’s embrace of climate issues “hopefully can push people to greater ambition to get the job done.”

Kerry is visiting European capitals to strengthen cooperation on climate change ahead of the next round of U.N. climate talks in Glasgow this November.

What makes the Pope a moral authority on Hotcoldwetdry? What degrees in science, particularly climate and weather, does he hold? Perhaps he should stick with that whole Catholic thing. But, if he is a moral authority, perhaps he should ask Kerry why he’s taking so many fossil fueled flights and low MPG fossil fueled vehicles.

Biden’s climate agenda targets Black America with innovation, HBCU funding

Exclusive: The Biden-Harris administration is expanding electric vehicle power stations into Black neighborhoods and is investing in HBCU renewable energy research

The Biden administration is putting Black America at the center of the solution for climate change by expanding electric vehicle power stations into Black neighborhoods and dumping funds into HBCU renewable energy research.

In an exclusive interview with theGrio, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm discussed this engagement as part of President Biden’s equity initiative that sparks tangible creativity and innovation from people who are not normally at the table or in the research lab.

And this will do what, exactly? Most blacks (and whites and Latinos and Asians) can’t afford an EV, so, how does putting lots of charging stations help? Heck, it’s not like they’re even going to get money out of this. And dumping funds into Historical Black Colleges? What does this have to do with the climate crisis (scam)? Sounds more like a payoff for getting Joe elected and a bribe for 2024.

Yes, Climate Change May Be Contributing to Your Eczema Flare Ups

On the (extensive) list of global warming’s negative effects is something that may surprise you: Climate change triggers eczema (medically referred to as atopic dermatitis) to flare up or become worse due to degraded air quality and increased pollution. “Interestingly, there was a recent study that looked into the effects of the California wildfires on rates of atopic dermatitis,” says dermatologist Valerie Harvey, MD. “They found that visits to the dermatologist increased for both kids and adults [during that time], compared to when there were none. Symptoms of itch were also higher.”

While increasing the prevalence and extent of wildfires are just some of the effects of climate change, Dr. Harvey says that this isn’t just a concern for people on the West Coast or an areas at high-risk for them. Ninety-percent of the world’s population lives in places with poor air quality, and air pollution is the greatest environmental hazard to human health, according to research. Still, Dr. Harvey points out that more research needs to be conducted to gain a better understanding of the relationship between the inflammatory skin condition and environmental factors.

Most wildfires occur because of some idiot or negligence starting them, either by accident or intentionally. A tiny increase in CO2 and the air temperature has little to do with pollutants nor bad air quality. A 1.5F increase since 1850 is tiny. Though, the urban heat island effect can artificially increase the local temperature, which can lead to worse air quality, let’s be honest. But, it isn’t global warming. And this is really more about scaremongering.
