This book takes an intersectional perspective to analyse the causes and consequences of climate change, re-centering human actions and responsibility into phenomenon often thought of as ‘natural’. It explores issues such as population control policies, food production, climate-related migrations, and foregrounds its approach in the goals and values of the climate justice movement. By showing the multiple interconnections between the human, the economy and the planet, the book calls for a radical change in order to preserve the planet, and ultimately, to survive.
