A Moment of Intersecting Crises: Climate Justice in the Era of Coronavirus

Marcela Mulholland ()

Development, 2020, vol. 63, issue 2, 257-261

Abstract: Abstract The author explores the nexus of ‘climate chaos’ and how this intersects with and exacerbates the top issues of our time—from immigration to public health to mass incarceration. She challenges us to think about the implications of these intersections for social justice and why policy makers need to stop considering the climate emergency as a siloed issue. Climate policy needs to be framed and rethought in an intersectional manner that centers equity, justice, and the creation of jobs.
