THERE IT IS: Dem Senator Says ‘Extreme Heat’ in the Summer is a ‘Justice Issue’ Caused By ‘Segregation’

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.02.21

Democrat Senator Ed Markey confused millions of users on social media this week when he claimed that “extreme heat is a justice issue” caused by patterns of “segregation and redlining.”

“Extreme heat is a justice issue. Within the same city, some neighborhoods can be up to 20°F hotter than others. Studies have shown that heat risk is disproportionately distributed to communities of color in patterns associated with segregation and redlining,” posted Markey.

“Systemic problems require systemic solutions. That’s why I introduced the Environmental Justice Mapping and Data Collection Act which will identify the communities most at risk from climate impacts like extreme heat so we can address problems before they become emergencies,” he adds.

“On a personal note, when I first got to Congress the reception I got in many spaces was v chilly. Ed Markey wasn’t afraid. He offered his expertise & partnership. He wasn’t scared of big policy & didn’t use kid gloves. It‘s great to watch him overcome the odds and win tonight,” posted AOC on social media.

 

 

“Sen. Ed Markey has defeated Rep. Joe Kennedy in the Democratic Senate primary in Massachusetts, notching a big win for progressives who made Markey’s campaign a national cause this summer,” added Politico following the closely-watched election.

AOC CORP? Ocasio-Cortez Calls for Creation of 1.5 MILLION Strong ‘Climate Corp’ to Fight Global Warming

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.05.21

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is urging the creation of a new “Climate Corp” to help fight global warming while employing a whopping 1.5 million Americans.

“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other progressive lawmakers are calling for the creation of a 1.5 million-strong group of civilians to work on federally funded projects addressing climate change as part of their sweeping Green New Deal legislation,” reports Fox News.

“The Civilian Climate Corps would fall under the purview of the Corporation for National and Community Service, an independent government agency that also runs AmeriCorps and other national service initiatives. The group would seek to employ 1.5 million Americans over five years, calling for coordination between the federal government and local organizations, including unions, according to a copy of the proposal,” adds Fox.

“What we’re going to do is make sure communities like Flint, Baltimore, the South Bronx, St. Louis, rural communities whose infrastructure was never properly built in the first place, are first in line to rectify the injustices of the past and make sure they get everything they need to thrive in the future,” Ocasio-Cortez told reporters.
