Moonbat science dept.: CBCF says whites to blame for "global warming"

The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation (CBCF) has a new study out that suggests that whites are responsible for "global warming."

The study, conducted by Oakland-based Redefining Progress, says that America's black population will be "unduly burdoned" by health effects of global warming; that blacks are "less responsible" for contributing to global warming than whites; and that governmental policies geared toward alleviating global warming can create large health and fiscal benefits for blacks, depending on how they are implemented.

"We are long past the point where global warming is considered a myth," said U.S. Rep. William Jefferson, D-La., chairman of the CBCF. "We are seeing its effects all around us."

"Time and again, the world's leading atmospheric scientists have warned us about the devastating impact of climate change," said Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, D-Texas. "We now have irrefutable proof of its impact on our economy, our way of life, our health and our children."

The study alleges responsibility for the problem does not lie primarily with blacks, stating, "African-American households emit 20 percent less carbon dioxide than white households. Historically, this difference was even higher."

Contrary to the study though, a NASA-funded study four months ago indicated that global warming claims may be very exaggerated.

So, as always, the jury is out on global warming.

But leave it to the CBCF to shoehorn the old newspaper headline joke in with their voodoo science: "World Ending, Minorities Affected Most."

I've never bought into the warming theory. If any great overwhelming weather change is coming, I think it's an icy period... but, I don't think that holds water either, really. I think weather alarmists are just kooks with a lot of schooling.

But this completely baffles me:
"African-American households emit 20 percent less carbon dioxide than white households. Historically, this difference was even higher."

Why are white emiting 20% more? Do we breathe differently? How do they measure such things?

That is just stupidity in it's purest form.

Someone needs to get back to mean when they find an ecological baseline that's valid to use to say that global warming is definitely occurring.

Well, I know my skin reflects more light into the atmosphere, thus helping to heat it up more...
