White People's Diet

Let me get this straight. Someone is now claiming that those nasty white folks are now overly contributing to the climate change myth due to their preferred diet which will somehow be related to 'white privilege'.

Some people will go to any length to drive the 'racial wedge'.

What actually constitutes the 'white diet'? I doubt those white folks in West Virginia are sharing their pinto beans and cornbread (my Dad is from Summers County) with those pesky Irish Americans in Boston. Collard greens from Alabama are probably not popular with those predominately white cowboys in Wyoming. How do you determine a standard diet based on skin color?

The insanity continues.....

But that's the American Way, Doug.  When in doubt, go insane.

For example, here in Vermont the local natural-gas distributor, Vermont Gas, just built a pipeline from Burlington down to Middlebury.  The idea was to build these small tub lines off the trunk line to service the commercial and retail users in the small towns off the main line.  they were all set to install the lines in the little town of Bristol, and made the Agreement with the Bristol Select Board to put the lines underneath the town streets, so that each homeowner could elect to tap in for cheap heating fuel, or not, when they got sued by a babble of 37 eco-lunatics and their eco-insane lawyer. The complaint was that the Select Board had not put the matter up for a town-wide vote.  So faced with forever litigation, the gas company and the Town simply vacated the contract.  Result: instead of clean-burning natural gas, the townsfolk and the commercial users can now go pay more for fuel oil. 

Insanity runs deep in American society.  At least, in the 5% that are certifiable.  This is the result when you don't spend the money to build mental hospitals.

Not "The Onion".  The world has lost its collective marbles, apparently.

Actually, if you have the time to click the link to the actual study it's more reasonable. Whites are more than 50% of the total population. Naturally, more people eat more food. I did get pause when I saw the term "Latinx", though. They lost me there as it followed "intersectional".

In fact, data provided by the Environmental Protection Agency and National Institutes of Health, which included more than 500 foods and water, found that white people produce, on average, 680 kilogram of CO2 each year. By comparison, Hispanics produce 640 kilograms and African-Americans produce 600 kilograms.
 

White Americans cause 12% more CO2 than Black Americans and 6% more CO2 than hispanic Americans.

If this article was along the lines of:

Wealthy people consume more meat, Consumption levels are detrimental to health, High meat consumption adds to global warming that would be fair enough and a reasoned objective argument. 

What I find insidious about  these articles is that its implied as a  white specific issue as if other ethnicities wouldn't do the same - well look at Gulf Arab states and China. Its all part of the institutionalised and acceptable racism shown towards white people that become quite prevalent in the last few years.
