Dosas, A., Omstedt, M., Olmsted, P., Iaci, N., Zare S., McKenzie S.,(2016) “Inequality Explained: 7 ways climate change and inequality are connected”,, January 14, 2016.

Abstract: The potential for droughts, floods, migration and conflict resulting from climate change arewell-publicized. Certain regions and groups are more exposed to these risks than others, and yet the ways climate change exacerbates inequality has been largely overlooked. Not only are the poor less equipped to deal with the impacts of climate change, but exposure and lack of capacity to cope with the effects associated with climate change — from sea level rise to flooding to crop failures — makes them even more vulnerable. While Meera Subramanian explored the role of inequality in environmental issues for OpenCanada, and a lecture by Green Party leader Elizabeth May provided a Canadian perspective, here are seven ways climate change is connected to inequality. Taken together, they make fighting the problem a lot more difficult. Read more HERE.
