Democrat Vice President of the United States Kamala Harris interrupted a presentation by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration to ask if the agency “can measure trees” in low income areas to find hidden racism and help establish “environmental justice” for non-white people.
“Can you measure, um, trees?” Harris demanded, pointing at the screen with an index finger. “Because part of that data that you’re referring to, and it’s an EJ, it’s environmental justice. But you can also track, by race, their averages in terms of the number of trees in the neighborhood where people live.”
