Al Sharpton: Climate Change ‘Civil Rights Issue,’ Blacks ‘Suffer Disproportionately

-

Monday, at the White House Champions of Change Faith Leaders for Climate event, the host of MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation,” Reverend Al Sharpton, said climate change is a “civil rights issue” because it “disproportionately” affects African-Americans.

Sharpton said, “it [climate change] is an issue of justice, and it is an issue of human rights. African-Americans are at a higher risk of being close, or predisposed to areas of carbon, as well as other poisonous pollution in the air. And we have a disproportionate interest because we suffer disproportionately.”

He added, “You cannot, not deal with climate change as a health issue, as a moral issue, and as a civil rights issue.”
