Toward Climate Justice and Community Renewal

By Brian Tokar

In the aftermath of massive Western wildfires and a punishing Gulf Coast hurricane season in North America last summer, combined with record-breaking spring and summer heat waves in Europe, people in the world’s wealthiest regions are beginning to acknowledge the near-universal nature of current climate impacts. However the core insight of climate justice – that highly vulnerable communities around the world have long been and still remain disproportionately affected by climate disruptions – remains as true as ever. Data from the UN’s Human Development Report document the highly unequal impacts of climate-related weather events going back to the 1980s (UNDP 2007, 75-76), and people in South Asia, East Africa, Central America and many other regions have experienced tragic extremes of drought, flooding and increasingly devastating storms over the past several years. A steadily improving science of climate attribution has clarified links between specific weather events and long-range climate trends that were virtually incalculable just over a decade ago.

Series Spotlight

Routledge Studies in Energy Transitions

Series Editor: Kathleen Araujo

Routledge Studies in Energy Transitions aims to advance the thinking which underlies these efforts. The series connects distinct lines of inquiry from planning and policy, engineering and the natural sciences, history of technology, STS, and management. In doing so, it provides primary references that function like a set of international, technical meetings. Single and co-authored monographs are welcome, as well as edited volumes relating to themes, like resilience and system risk.

Featured Book Review

"Nature is all around us, in the beautiful but also in the unappealing and functional, and from the awe-inspiring to the mundane. It is vital that we learn to see the agency of the natural world in all things that make our lives possible, comfortable and profitable. 'The Ecology of Everyday Things' pulls back the veil of our familiarity on a range of ‘everyday things’ that surround us, and which we perhaps take too much for granted. This key into the magic world of the everyday can enable us to take better account of our common natural inheritance.

Professor James Longhurst, Assistant Vice Chancellor, University of the West of England (UWE Bristol)
