When we talk about racism, we often mean personal prejudice or institutional biases. Climate change doesn’t work that way. It is structurally racist, disproportionately caused by majority white people in majority white countries, with the damage unleashed overwhelmingly on people of color. The climate crisis reflects and reinforces racial injustices.
In this eye-opening book, writer and environmental activist Jeremy Williams takes us on a short, urgent journey across the globe—from Kenya to India, the USA to Australia—to understand how white privilege and climate change overlap. We’ll look at the environmental facts, hear the experiences of the people most affected on our planet and learn from the activists leading the change.
It’s time for each of us to find our place in the global struggle for justice.
