Climate change disproportionately affects communities of color; in the form of communities of color living near more polluted areas, poorer nations facing the brunt of the economic and ecological impact, etc. Racial inequality also means these communities that suffer the most adverse effects, also have the fewest resources to combat these issues. Now, more than ever, we need to work towards climate justice and an equitable future for everyone.
