Climate Induced Extinctions: Impact of Demographic Changes

Is Climate Changing Beauty Aesthetics? Keeping Up with the Kardashians' is ending. Yet the rampant colonization and exploitation of Black women's aesthetics continues. Climate change affects food availability, arable land, survivability for human habitation in hot regions, water access exacerbating food and nutrition crises. Temperature and precipitation changes enhance the spread of vector-borne diseases. Without preventive actions, deaths from such diseases, currently over 700 000 annually, may rise to as much as 7000,000 by 2070.The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that climate change will cause an additional 250,000 deaths every year from 2030 to 2100 due to malnutrition, malaria, diarrhea, and heat.



Companies make profits off of black women's insecurity from products such as skin lightening cream, chemical straighteners, and hair dye, but the world is quickly moving toward embracing melanin as the standard of beauty! A majority of U.S. adults say the decreasing share of Americans who identify their race as White is neither good nor bad for society, but emotionally confusing. The white population in the USA is shrinking rapidly and, in about 10 years, will be in free fall—a consequence of an old age greed focused structure controlling society, fewer births, more deaths, and little European immigration. What that means is that many European places, especially those experiencing out-migration, are already experiencing their own white population losses. During the first decade of this century, white population losses were registered for 25 states, nearly half of our 360 metropolitan areas, and over half of our 3,100 counties.


Some areas that are seeing declines in their white population caused by migration—particularly many counties in the Great Plains, the Midwest, and parts of the South—are also experiencing an excess of deaths over births in their white populations. The so-called "Deaths of Despair" caused by the destruction of the White middle class by the corporate controlled legislatures that support the Petro-pharmaceuticals and Corporate controlled farming!


Dark-pigmented people living in high sunlight and heat environments are at an advantage pertaining to survival and longevity due to the high amounts of melanin produced in their skin. The dark pigmentation protects from DNA damage and absorbs the right amounts of UV radiation needed by the body, disperses heat, as well as protects against folate depletion which causes low birth numbers. States losing white population fall into two categories: those in which employment slowdowns have triggered major out-migration (e.g., Michigan, Ohio), and urbanized coastal states with high costs of living (e.g., California, New York, New Jersey).In 2050, 41% of the U.S. population will be non-Hispanic white, compared with 67% in 2005.


Darker skin absorbs more heat radiation than lighter skin, but both skin tones absorb the same amount of heat in infrared radiation. Darker skin contains more melanin, which absorbs ultraviolet (UV) light and protects skin from sun damage. In 2023, Asian households had a median net worth of $310,900, compared with $240,400 for White households. The median net worth of Hispanic households ($46,700) and Black households ($44,890) was much less according to the Survey for Consumer Finances. Currently, Africa is the second most populous continent in the world with around 1.22 billion residents while Oceania and Australia have a combined 43 million residents. By 2050, 1 in 4 people on Earth will be African (not counting the billion or so outside of Africa), and the most recent demographic reports expect African populations to be the only regions that will continue to grow after 2050 most scientists agreeing this is most likely due to the effects of Climate change.


The areas that are gaining whites overlap heavily with those that are attracting dispersing minorities(meaning white Hispanic, Latino, North African, Middle Eastern etc...)— prosperous and affordable parts of the Southeast, Southwest, and Mountain West—including suburbs, exurbs, and smaller metropolitan areas. But it’s pretty clear that, going forward, the nation’s white population shifts will be a “zero-sum” game: As some areas experience greater white population gains, others will suffer losses. And this affects how we view the world and what the desirable qualities are with potential mates. Natural selection acts on an organism's phenotype, or observable features. Phenotype is often largely a product of genotype (the alleles, or gene versions, the organism carries). this means mates are selected as desirable based on their ability to survive in their habitat.


In humans much of this preference is subconscious. Our choice of a long-term romantic partner or mate is one of the most important decisions we make in our lifetimes. Yet sometimes it seems a mystery why we choose who we do. People who on paper should give us everything we want may leave us feeling flat. Yet someone who seems wildly inappropriate according to the societies social structure or unlike anyone we think we would want may spark intense fireworks.


The prominent view of mate selection, based in evolutionary psychology, is that we are genetically wired to choose partners who will give us the best opportunity to propagate and pass on our genes. Females seek mates who can provide resources to maximize the chances that children will grow up with the most advantages. Thus women instinctively seek men who display intelligence, competence and ambition or who possess wealth or power. When wealth is taken out of the equation and the system is based on who can provide on his own power and ingenuity rather than access to a social construct that provides Women will be drawn to physical strength, speed, wit the ability to think fast etc...possibly as an evolutionary indicator of the ability to protect them and their offspring. Thus women tend to be attracted to men with broader shoulders and a waist-hip ratio denoting upper body strength.


Women tend to have higher standards than men, men tend to prefer women of their own age down to five years younger, while women tend to prefer men of their own age up to five years older. We especially value the following characteristics in potential mates:

1) Warmth and kindness 2) Sincerity 3) Intellectual openness 4) Dependability 5) Conscientiousness 6) Loyalty 7) Altruism 8) Likeliness of being a good parent 9) Emotional stability 10) Companionability


But the primary focus is on having offspring that can survive and in a globally warmed planet of 4-6 degrees Celsius rise above pre Industrialization temperatures an ability to procreate and survive extreme heat and high UV radiation is a major factor. Variation in human skin pigmentation phenotype evolved as an adaptation so that humans could survive warm climates. Loss of melanin to a Pheomelanin dominant population as that of Europe was a survival mutation for a colder clime. UV photolysis of folate in the dermal vasculature provided a strong selection pressure for a more highly melanized, darker skin at tropical latitudes of Africa where Homo sapiens first evolved.


Light skin is a human skin color that has a base level of eumelanin pigmentation or only Pheomelanin that has adapted to environments of low UV radiation. Light skin is most commonly found amongst the native populations of Europe, Central Asia, and Northeast Asia as measured through skin reflectance currently these are the areas of the world experiencing extreme loss of populations, sperm count and overall fertility. White or light-skinned people who live near the equator, where there is abundant sunlight, are at an increased risk of folate depletion which negatively affects female fertility. As a consequence of folate depletion, they are also at a higher risk of DNA damage, birth defects, and numerous types of cancers, especially skin cancer. Traditionally, the beauty industry was primarily marketed towards White women, but in recent years, there has been a shift towards inclusivity and diversity, with many brands now targeting black and Asian women, non-binary individuals, and individuals of all ages and ethnicities.


Historically, light-skinned populations almost exclusively lived far from the equator, in high latitude areas with low sunlight intensity. According to the International Panel on Climate Change unless we give up fossil fuels in the next 10 years the planet overall will warm by 4 degrees Celsius with the accompanying rise in UV radiation as well. For males without sufficient Eumelanin The UV-A induced disruption of chromatin structure renders the DNA vulnerable to damage, with resultant DNA fragmentation. Thus, UV-A affects the sperm quality, which in turn can lead to infertility such as being experienced now globally in European populations.


It is generally accepted that dark skin evolved as a protection against the effect of UV radiation; eumelanin protects against both folate depletion and direct damage to DNA. This accounts for the dark skin pigmentation of Homo sapiens during their development in Africa; allowing the major migrations out of Africa the ability to colonize the rest of the world (not necessarily inclusive of archaic humans that left Africa before homo sapiens sapiens had evolved).


Melanin is an advantage even at the poles. Australia unwittingly conducted that experiment. Europeans sent a population of British people to a country whose northern extreme is only 1000 km (700 miles) from the equator. All that has led to so far for those people and their descendants is the word’s highest rate of skin cancer. Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. About 2 out of 3 Australians will be diagnosed with some form of skin cancer before the age of 70. Non-melanoma (keratinocyte) skin cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in Australia and the majority of the population can only live on the coast. As of 2020, 29.8% of Australia's population was born overseas and 76% as of 2016 had European ancestry.


Australia has an average population density of 3.5 persons per square kilometer of total land area, which makes it one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world. This is generally attributed to the semi-arid and desert geography of much of the interior of the country. Another factor is urbanization, with 89% of its population living in a handful of urban areas. Australia, in 2020, had a birthrate of 1.58 sustainability is 2.1. Australia's fertility rate has been mostly below “replacement level” since the late 1970s with the only major rises in births among the aboriginal peoples populations.
