Climate Justice

About This Collection

Reframing climate change to climate justice affords us the opportunity to view climate change science through the lens of environmental, social and economic justice and understand that global warming is an ethical and moral issue.  A major proposition of climate justice is that those who are least responsible for climate change suffer its gravest consequences.

The purpose of this collection is to draw your attention to the many voices of climate justice to educate and inspire you.  Of particular note, "Faith communities carrying this message (of climate justice) are potentially powerful voices on climate change – voices that have been largely silent on the issue until recently."   

EarthSayers.tv has also started a Web collection, here as a blog, on Faith and Climate Justice.

Putting a Social Price on Carbon by Maggie Fox

The Social Cost of Carbon estimates the monetary damages that result from carbon pollution -- essentially putting a value on the effects of climate change that are already costing us today. Webinar presentation (audio) by Maggie Fox.

The Obama Administration requires agencies to factor in these damages when making new policies. After careful scientific analysis, the current estimate was increased to $37 per metric ton of carbon pollution.

But Big Oil and Big Coal oppose this increase, attempting to reduce the social cost of carbon so that they can continue polluting recklessly.
