Climate change is racist

Climate Change is Racist: Race, Privilege and the Struggle for Climate Justice.

Out summer 2021 from Icon Books.

Both in its cause and in its effect, climate change reflects racial inequalities. It is disproportionately caused by the majority white citizens of the global North, while the damage it unleashes falls first and foremost on people of colour. The climate crisis reflects racial inequalities of the past, and reinforces them into the future.

The first book to explore these connections for a popular audience, and using a wide range of sources and voices to tell this story through the people and places most affected on our planet.
