    Climate Change Tied to Pregnancy Risks, Affecting Black Mothers Most

    Pregnant women exposed to high temperatures or air pollution are more likely to have children who are premature, underweight or stillborn, and African-American mothers and babies are harmed at a much higher rate than the population at large, according to sweeping new research examining more than 32 million births in the United States.

    The research adds to a growing body of evidence that minorities bear a disproportionate share of the danger from pollution and global warming. Not only are minority communities in the United States far more likely to be hotter than the surrounding areas, a phenomenon known as the “heat island” effect, but they are also more likely to be located near polluting industries.

                Did they take into account parental drinking and drug use? Not going to read the article, but it is unfortunate the grey lady is now publishing this garbage.

                      There's a whole theory that affirmative action, welfare, model cities program, etc that promoted single parent households leading to the decline of minorities(see black communities) and increased poverty.

                      But thinking such is racist. Everything is racist.
