Parker Griffith: Candidate for Governor & Tea Party Expert!

Here we go folks

The former U.S. congressman concluded by saying Alabama’s executive and legislative branches are behaving in fear of the Tea Party.

“If we turn this state over to the Tea Party, we will never get it back in your lifetime. This is a critical and important election. I’ve seen them and their worse than you think they are. I know them very well.”

That’s right, former mayoral candidate, State Senator, Congressman, 2-time failed Congressional candidate, former Democrat, former Republican, former Independent, now Democrat (again) candidate for Governor knows how scary you Tea Party people are…

This Twitter user nails it…

There’s more…

“The first day I am governor, we’re going to call a special session to expand Medicaid. While we are there, we are going to allow the people of Alabama to vote on a lottery for education,” Griffith said.

Good luck, Dr. Griffith.

Damn pollution, you racist.

Just how racist is your pollution?

Very?

Studies dating back to the 1970s have pointed to a consistent pattern in who lives near the kinds of hazards –  toxic waste sites, landfills, congested highways — that few of us would willingly choose as neighbors. The invariable answer: poor people and communities of color.

This pattern of “environmental injustice” suggests that minorities may contend every day with disproportionate health risks from tailpipe exhaust or coal plant emissions. But these health risks are harder to quantify than, say, the number of power plants in a city. And most of the research that has tried to do this has been limited to a single metropolitan area, or to those few places that happen to have good monitoring data on pollution.

Can we guess why?

Specifically, they found that minorities are on average exposed to 38 percent higher levels of outdoor NO2 than whites in the communities where they live, based on demographic data from the 2000 census. That gap varies across the country, though, and it’s substantially wider in the biggest cities. Nationwide, the difference in exposure is akin to approximately 7,000 deaths a year from heart disease.

Minorities are more likely to live in urban areas with more vehicles and less trees?

Regionally, the disparities are largest in the upper Midwest and the Northeast, but the model Marshall and his coauthors developed can drill down from there. These maps show the differences in average exposure to NO2 between low-income nonwhites and high-income whites:

In that bottom map, the New York/Newark metropolitan area ranks as having the widest disparity in average exposure between lower-income minority census block groups and upper-income white ones across the entire metro area. New York is followed by Philadelphia; Bridgeport/Stamford, Conn.; Boston; Providence, R.I.; Detroit; Los Angeles; and New Haven, Conn.

The only solution is to bus minorities from the cities and force them to live in the Mountain Time Zone…
