Climate Files 42 / Green Justice

FNGreenMoney Climate change will be very much about justice in the years and decades to come.    Green money–Green jobs–Green greed–the non- Jolly Green Giant Known as Copenhagen — Is climate change stalling and finger-pointing  green insanity?  Not everything can be called green. Economic INjustice means those with the most money will survive climate change the easiest, and that’s not green at all.

As mentioned, here are just a few of the environmental justice groups in the U.S.:  Environmental justice climate change initiative,  or EJCC.org.  Also, NLCCC.org and WEACT.org . . . . and many other groups around the U.S. working on climate change justice.

The weekly talk included in this episode is from Manuel Pastor, who is Professor of Geography and American Studies & Ethnicity at the University of Southern California where he also serves as Director of the Program for Environmental and Regional Equity (PERE). His research focuses on environmental justice and the economic, environmental and social conditions facing low-income urban communities in the U.S.  His talk is titled, Making Climate Change Policy Work in Difficult Economic Times.
