Philadelphia’s Democratic Mayor Jim Kenney posted about climate change and climate justice on a Twitter post, but that’s when others reminded him of the harsh reality in his city – the actual crime and lawlessness that allowed Philadelphia to record 502 homicides in 2020, the highest number since dating back to 1960.
Mayor Kenney posted this message, saying “Climate change is real and it’s hurting our residents—particularly people of color and low income and working-class residents. We must do our part to achieve climate justice and ensure everyone benefits from a healthy environment for generations to come,” and it wasn’t long until the comments were popping off and sending him their two cents on crime, progressive measures, and other topics.
Kenney is also the mayor who said Trump should just accept that he lost the election, as seen on this video right here.

I agree Mr. Mayor but would be remiss not to remind that we ended the most progressive electric vehicle parking perk in the country and replaced it with nothing but a policy paper. My honor to contribute to that paper but 3 years later none of the recommendations implemented.

@JimFKenney #Philly #Philadelphia Someone please tell me how climate change knows the difference between low income, people of color and those that are not. Maybe low income & people of color live closer to polar ice caps & forests. No. Really someone educate me.
