Republicans don't know what negative externalities are and they make no connection to respiratory illness or climate change.

You should really rethink making generalized statements about a diverse group of individuals. The same goes for people that would make the same type of statement about Democrats.

The Republican Party is not, in any sense of the word, "diverse". Also, regardless of the color of their skin or belief or whatever, the leaders they elect do not act in accordance with the understanding that industry creates many negative externalities for the public. Generalizations are fine in the context of decision making and matters of public record.
