Of course, regular readers of IHateTheMedia.com are well aware that everything – absolutely everything – is racist. So it should come as no surprise to learn that coal-fired power plants fall into that vile category, too.
The Holland, Michigan Sentinel reports the latest in leftist outrage:
A new national report to be released by the NAACP Saturday gives Holland’s James De Young coal-fired plant a environmental justice grade of ‘F.’
The report analyzes toxic emissions and demographic factors including race, income and population density to calculate “environmental justice scores” for the nation’s 431 coal-fired power plants which are “significantly harmful to low-income communities and communities of color.”
Detroit’s River Rouge Power Plant is ranked as ninth-most harmful in the nation.
Other failing plants include Eckert (Lansing); B.C. Cobb (Muskegon); Monroe (Monroe); Trenton Channel (Trenton) and Presque Isle (Marquette).
Regular IHTM reader Paden alerted us to this story and said, “The Sierra club has been fighting Holland city for two years to stop the expansion of the power plant. Holland has one group of liberals who won’t allow a new plant and another flock of libs saying the currant plant is racist.”
Environmental justice. A phrase in which neither word is accurate, but the left buys it anyway. Generally with your money.
