Beto O'Rourke says race is No.1 indicator for location of toxic facilities. Is it true?
If elected president, Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke said he’d launch a $5 trillion plan to combat climate change and invest in communities already dealing with its impact.
“Climate change has a distressingly disproportionate impact on poor and minority communities across the United States and around the world,” said O’Rourke in his plan released April 29. “Race is the No. 1 indicator for where toxic and polluting facilities are today.”
