Abstract:

Climate change is one of the most important social,
economic, human rights, and community health issues facing our nation and our world. It is not, and should not be framed as, solely an environmental or scientific issue. Otherwise, global warming runs the risk of being disconnected from everyday people who experience it, well, every day. The questions and answers for climate change take root in the very economic and social structures that equity advocates already understand. It stands to reason that equity advocates have the tools to lead the charge on climate change.
