    Are these the dumbest motherfuckers on the face of the planet or what?!?

    Call it a stretch, but I see racism beneath it all. They see global warming as a pet issue of urban elites and effete academics, who while still mostly white, are also mostly liberal, and liberals are the defenders of the welfare state and perpetrators of voter fraud, which they believe mostly benefits and is engaged in by no account shiftless blacks and illegal Latinos.

    A friend of mine and I recently argued about which is the more prevalent and insidious evil in today's US, classism or racism. I said classism, he said racism. I was wrong. It's all about racism, ultimately. Why do we only attack and least care about countries whose citizens are darker skinned?

    Global warming will likely most adversely affect such countries, of course.
