Toward Climate Justice
13 Mar 2011
Brian Tokar and Maggie Zhou of the activist network Climate SOS will discuss the global climate crisis, its implications for worldwide struggles for justice, and the emergence of the climate justice movement. Tokar is the author of the recently published book, Toward Climate Justice: Perspectives on the Climate Crisis and Social Change (http://www.akpress.org/2010/items/towardclimatejustice).

March 28th, 7 pm at Lucy Parsons Center!
OVERVIEW
The call for Climate Justice promises a renewed grassroots response to the climate
crisis. This emerging movement is rooted in land-based and urban communities around
the world that are already experiencing the impacts of global climate disruptions.
Toward Climate Justice highlights the social justice and human rights dimensions of
the crisis, using creative direct action to press for real, systemic changes. Toward
Climate Justice explains the case for Climate Justice, challenges the myths
underlying carbon markets and other false solutions, including the emergence of new
nuclear and biofuel technologies, and dissects the events that shaped the diplomatic
failure of the 2009 Copenhagen climate summit.

Drawing on more than three decades of political engagement with energy and climate
issues, Brian Tokar shows how the perspective of social ecology can point the way
toward an ecological reconstruction of society.
