Trump voters in storm-ravaged county confront climate change

Hilton Kelley tosses his petition clipboard in frustration as he’s turned away from a renter who was told by her landlord not to get involved in Kelley’s attempt to shutdown the dump across the street piled with flood damaged debris in Port Arthur, Texas, Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2017. “This is an outrage. This is appalling. There’s no way this should have happened,” said Kelly of the dump’s proximity to people’s homes. He worried about mold and other contaminants from the garbage getting into the low-income African American neighborhood. These are the neighborhoods, he said, that often pay the price for environmental pollution. Many of these neighborhoods also flooded. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
