Climate Change as Environmental Justice Issue

Are African-Americans More Vulnerable to Climate Change?

The short answer is yes, for a number of social justice reasons. The reminds me of The Soul of Environmentalism (PDF, 20 pp.), an essay about the possibility of environmental justice reviving the environmental movement. This is yet more evidence (as far as I’m concerned) that the most important activities for environmentalism are in improving cities, not in preserving so-called “pristine” nature.
