    schema:description ""The adverse impacts of climate change (heat waves, extended drought, severe flooding and desertification) represent an urgent and potentially irreversible threat to human societies and the planet. Climate Justice - a voice for our future - responds to human adversity by mobilizing climate justice as legal justice. A first principles approach to constitutionalize legal justice helps to legitimize and realize a unified, transparent, comprehensible, accessible and responsive process that applies to all. Part one examines and unifies parameters of climate justice within the legal system. Part two develops a constitutional response to systematic system failure (injustice). Thorp then shows how to use the model to launch a process to develop an agreement applicable to all and with legal force under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The book will interest philanthropists and all interested in the future of humanity. It will appeal to climate justice movements, NGO constituencies, environmental groups, human rights advocates, governments, negotiators, businesses, and other decision-makers"--"@en ;
