Environmental Justice and Climate Justice You have read a number of articles and book chapters about these two closely aligned topics. You have also read about some of the various communities and parts of the world that have been impacted by environmental justice and climate justice.
For this reading response, you should write an essay (introduction, body, conclusion, thesis statement developed through body) that expounds on the questions/prompts below. The paper is worth 50 points and should be between 3 – 5 pages, double-spaced. The paper is due to the submissions folder “Reading Response #2” by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, July 3. After doing these readings, how do you best understand what environmental justice is and climate justice? Describe these as two separate but related problems. Cite your readings (both of the readings) to help develop your response. Now I’d like you to do some research (not anything too heavy) to identify a part of the world that is currently impacted by climate justice. Explain what environmental problems are occurring there due to climate change. Reference the readings to provide evidence that the environmental problems being felt by this part of the world you have identified can be classified as “climate justice” issues. Make sure to also cite the sources you use to describe the state of the climate change problems that are happening in the location you are writing about.
