Key Asks for Climate Justice and System Change

It is time to fully recognize that climate change is not only an environmental issue but also a matter of justice since it arises from the gross injustices of capitalism driven by profit and accumulation. It is not simply a matter of differing levels of development since the historical difference in levels of development resulted from exploitation by centuries of colonialism and continuing neocolonialism. It is a human issue with immediate implications for jobs, homes, health, food, and lives. Those who are hit first and hardest are those who contributed least to the problem. Climate change will only exacerbate poverty and widen the gap between the small rich section and the poorest of the world.
