Eco-Social Justice on the Global Frontlines

Program #SHIV022. Recorded in Boulder, CO on March 22, 2017.

Despite the position of the Trump administration, which has labeled climate change a “hoax” concocted by China, there is virtual universal unanimity that the Earth’s temperature is rising and that human activity is largely responsible. In the face of this crisis Trump is cutting the budget of the Environmental Protection Agency and laying off staff. Is this the kind of response required at this critical juncture? The window for collective action to mitigate the effects of global warming is narrowing. Corporate-driven policies toward the Earth as just a place to extract resources and make money must be reversed if long-term tragic consequences are to be avoided. Sustainable agricultural practices and nutritious food are key to healing ourselves and our planet. Ecological and social justice are inseparable.
