Environmental Justice and Climate Activism come together in 2016: The Climate Minute Podcast

2016 was quite a year-in many, many ways. Environmental justice concerns melded quite clearly with climate activism in Dakota. The pipeline protests there seem to be a template for a linking of climate and inequality issues that will be needed in the future. Of course, the year was notable from a geo-physics perspective as the Arctic icecap melted-in the winter! What a surprise! Finally, the international climate movement might be strong enough to persist, even without US leadership. Look to China to reap the benefits of our stupid policies. Listen in as we discuss.

The reading list:

Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist that the United States put a price on carbon.

Thanks for listening.
