This 9-minute video is Episode four of The Breakdown series. It looks at the intersection between racism and climate change, highlighting how climate change is first and foremost a social justice issue. Looking forward, the episode explores the role of the Green New Deal as part of a just and fair transition.
Episode four also features Co-Executive Director of The Green New Deal UK, Fatima Ibrahim; Author of ‘The Uninhabitable Earth’, David Wallace-Wells, and Podcast Host and Writer Mary Heglar.
The video might be summarised in the closing statement:
“Yes, the past and present are littered with injustices, but the future doesn’t have to be. Climate justice might be a complex issue, but its aim is simple, for everyone to have access to a livable and healthy environment. Global north or global south, it is our most basic human right. “
