Cue The Eyerolls: Kamala Harris Asks If NASA Can Track Trees By Race For Environmental Justice (Video)

While visiting thee Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, on Friday “to see vital climate science work,” Vice President Kamala Harris asked NASA if it could use its satellites to track trees “by race” in various neighborhoods as part of “environmental justice,” Breitbart and others reported.

“Can you measure trees — part of that data that you are referring to, [and it’s an issue of] EJ, environmental justice — that you can also track by race their averages in terms of the number of trees in the neighborhoods where people live?” she asked in a now-viral video.

Naturally, Harris was mercilessly mocked on social media:

 

Ah, well, that explains it…

There was a whole lot more, as Breitbart observed:

“Officer Harris is just trying to figure out whether trees are racist or not,” wrote yet another.

“Yes, the world’s most inauthentic, unnatural politician Kamala Harris made news yesterday by pressing NASA on its ability to sort trees by race as part of an ‘environmental justice’ push,” another wrote.

“So the [vice] president Kamala Harris with NASA yesterday, able to ask any question about our universe, she asks if they are able to ‘track trees’ by race as part of ‘environmental justice,’” wrote one Twitter user.

“She’s going to keep dividing, nothing will stop them from creating a new, segregated society,” yet another wrote.

This comes as the $1.75 trillion spending package includes billions for a left-wing “tree equity” program Breitbart says “is just one of a plethora of climate-related spending provisions in the bill.”
