Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing the planet, and it is intimately connected to uneven and inequitable social, political, economic and environmental geographies. In this course we explore climate justice in relation to climate science including greenhouse gas emissions and ongoing and likely future impacts; differential experiences and narratives of climate change; the ways that climate solutions may reinforce or improve social and economic difference and marginalization; more-than-human geographies of climate change; and possibilities for democratic and just responses. Students will leave this course with a broader understanding of the necessity and practice of climate justice.
