Liaison of Climate Change and Social Inequality

In Transitioning to Reduced Inequalities, , Eds.


Climate change contains, in a nutshell, fundamental relations of social inequality such as gender, “race”, and class. This chapter outlines how climate change is human made, primarily by a capitalist economic system. Capitalism relies on exploitative relations of nature and humans, mainly in the global South and of women. A reduction of inequalities is possible through a socio-economic transformation, which seeks degrowth and an alternative to a Green New Deal.
