Excellent and timely piece Mark!

while there indeed “climate justice” stories to be told, the tone of this is both misleading and politically ineffective. We all live on one planet and climate threatens everyone. Not just poor communities but also those with shoreline properties, middle class neighborhoods threatened by more flooding (as in Cranston RI) agricultural interests hurt by an unstable climate, insurers who have to ay out for more climate catastrophes… We are all in it together is a more effective political message, and we badly need messaging that notes our common humanity rather than emphasizing differences.
