Hispanics, “People Of Color” Are “More Likely To Live Near Power Plants”

 

A recent Huffington Post article states that the overwhelming majority of Latinos are more concerned with environmental issues, than any other issue, included the current stagnant national economy and education.

The writer of the story, who appears to support progressive causes,  unbelievably states that  “people of color” are  “more likely to live near power plants, refineries, and other sources of toxic air pollution.”

Is the writer implying that “people of color”  are for the most part poor, and cannot afford to live anywhere else but near “power plants” or any other structures or businesses that are seen as ” sources of toxic air pollution?”

Across the United States, Latino communities are feeling the heat as climate change contributes to extreme weather patterns of increased drought, punishing heat waves, and unexpected floods. With people of color more likely to live near power plants, refineries, and other sources of toxic air pollution, supporting the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s Clean Power Plan, which sets the first ever federal limits on carbon pollution from power plants, is a commonsense step toward safeguarding our health and our environment.-HP

There is no doubt in anyone’s minds that all people, including Hispanics, who live in the United States, have some concerns about climate change.

What do you think about the remark that “people of color” are “more likely to live near power plants, refineries, and other sources of toxic air pollution.”
