Why greater fairness?

Climate change deepens divisions. It is the old, the disenfranchised and the marginalised residents in our towns and cities who are most exposed to the risks from increasing heat waves, flooding, droughts and severe weather storms. Climate change is unjust. Poorer communities are more likely to live around the sources of pollution responsible for warming, like busy roads and industrial sites, and suffer worse consequences. Such inequitable outcomes exacerbate injustice, racism and poverty. We need greater impartiality in our policies and responses that address the environmental harm we cause. Climate change is unfair. Our response must not be.
