A tragic truth about climate change is that it disproportionately affects the poor.  Islanders are losing their homelands due to rising sea levels, the urban poor are suffering the consequences of toxic waste, polluted air and water, and those most challenged as a result of Hurricane Katrina were the poor of the 7th ward.   It is clear that climate disruption is fueling the fires of injustice.   So what is the impact of climate change on peacemaking?  A recent study substantiates strong connections between climatic events and human conflict across the globe.

 

Come join us in a conversation about climate change

and its effects on global peace and justice.
