Issues We Care About:

Climate Change

From drought and devastating wildfires in the American West to accelerating rates of sea level rise and more powerful hurricanes, the real victims of a warming planet are not just polar bears and ice sheets, but people.

However, the effects of climate change are not felt equally. The cruel irony of climate change is that people in the developing world — those who can least afford to adapt — will pay the steepest price for the 200 years of industrialization and pollution from the developed world. This truly is an issue of climate justice.
