McKibben on Racism, Police Violence and Climate in the New Yorker
June 10, 2020
Post Carbon Fellow Bill McKibben’s op-ed in The New Yorker argues that racism, police violence and the climate are not separate issues.
From the article:
Over the years, the environmental movement has morphed into the environmental-justice movement, and it’s been a singularly interesting and useful change. Much of the most dynamic leadership of this fight now comes from Latinx and African-American communities, and from indigenous groups; more to the point, the shift has broadened our understanding of what “environmentalism” is all about.
