Those who feel climate anxiety are overwhelmingly white

Not all racial groups or communities have expressed the same amount of fear and anxiety over climate change, increasingly also a social justice issue. Climate change is being viewed as responsible for "pandemics, pollution, natural disaster" but only whites seem to be concerned about its effects.

Published: April 6, 2021, 9:22 am

    The Scientific American (SA) published an opinion article maintaining that “people and communities suffering [from climate change] most are disproportionately” black, but only whites were worried about the future of our planet.

    And because climate anxiety is a white concern, according to the publication, it has become a suspect endeavour. “Is climate anxiety a form of white fragility or even racial anxiety? Put another way, is climate anxiety just code for white people wishing to hold onto their way of life or get ‘back to normal’ to the comforts of their privilege?”

    They argue that the white response to climate change has been “sucking up all the oxygen in the room and devoting resources toward appeasing the dominant group”. This may result in whites hoarding resources, limiting the rights of the other races most affected and following a “xenophobic strategy” to save themselves.

    “Climate change compounds existing structures of injustice, and those structures exacerbate climate change,” according to the SA.

    “It is a surprisingly short step from ‘chronic fear of environmental doom’ as the American Psychological Association defines eco-anxiety, to xenophobia and fascism. Racism is not an accidental by-product of environmentalism; it has been a constant reference point.” Notably, the early environmentalists in the US were “anti-immigrant eugenicists”.

    Climate change activists believe that the world is facing the “greatest existential threat of our time” but according to the SA, this claim ignores racial issues such as slavery, colonialism and white police brutality.

      Climate anxiety is something that normally only affects people with nothing else to worry about. When a person spends their life trying to feed their family and pay the bills, they don’t have time to pay attention to control hoaxes. Manmade climate change anxiety is a middle or upper class dysphoria.

      Those who have climate anxiety are overwhelmingly stupid. We will be done with fossil fuels for energy by 2050 no matter what government does, for the same reasons we stopped buying horses and typewriters.

      This is all nonsense, and China has spread this propaganda for decades and are building NEW Coal Plants as fast as they can ! ! !
      CO2 is part of life, and we need it to live, plants use this to make Oxygen, to limit it is suicidal !

        Over the last 250,000,000 years CO2 levels averaged 1000 to 1200 ppm. Today we are at 415 ppm and around 250 ppm you have significant plant and animal die offs. We need more CO2 for a healthy planet.

      White liberal idiocy.

      The same people who go the extra miles to shop at Whole Foods to avoid GMOs then rush to take a “vaccine” that turns them into a GMO.

      Generally speaking, black people aren’t much concerned about climate change or anxiety.

    • Donkeycrat

      Let me make the headline accurate,……White…” LIBTARDS” in other words , stupid, ignorant, self agrandizing whacko’s who have convinced themselves their fantasy is actually true. They are going to be sorely disappointed when no one listens and nothing happens. Then it will turn to vicious anger against the Communist mentally ill professors that convinced them of this stupidity. The so called “Universitys” should be sued by every student who borrowed money on the promise they could make a living when they got their degree, when what they got was a piece of trash that couldn’t get them hired at Starbucks.
