Climate Justice

Climate justice is the concept that it the larger, richer, and developed countries that have polluted the most, and have a greater impact on global warming. Yet it is the smaller, poorer, and less-developed countries who will be most affected by climate change.

Nations that have contributed the most to greenhouse gas emissions have a responsibility to assist those who will experience displacement, drought, food shortages, and other consequences stemming from climate change. Furthermore, to protect the environment it is imperative that those same nations abandon fossil fuels and move towards a greener economy.
