Environmental Policy Hurts the Poor

African-American Niger Innis says that environmental policies disproportionately imapct low-income families. That's why Innis, who is the National Spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality, is also national co-chair of the Alliance to Stop the War on the Poor (www.stopwaronpoor.org). He says that radical environmentalism has disproportionate influence on politicians around the world, to the detriment of the poor everywhere.

Curious? Read more in The National Post, Leader-Post, and an article penned by Innis himself published by the Frontier Centre. Below, Niger's father Roy Innis, former CORE chair, talks about why his equality group believes that current U.S. energy policy, influenced by "radical environmentalism and global warming hysteria", actually threatens the economic civil rights of the poor.
