Abstract:

The call for Climate Justice promises a renewed grassroots response to the climate crisis. This emerging movement is rooted in land-based and urban communities around the world that are already experiencing the impacts of global climate disruptions. Climate Justice highlights the social justice and human rights dimensions of the crisis, using creative direct action to press for real, systemic changes. Toward Climate Justice explains the case for Climate Justice, challenges the myths underlying carbon markets and other false solutions, including the emergence of new nuclear and biofuel technologies, and dissects the events that shaped the diplomatic failure of the 2009 Copenhagen climate summit. Drawing on more than three decades of political engagement with energy and climate issues, Brian Tokar shows how the perspective of social ecology can point the way toward an ecological reconstruction of society. --publisher's description.
