You are a climate justice consultant:
You will go before a major governing body (the U.N., lets say) that already has a task force onracial justice, and a separate task force onclimate action. You will make the case that these should be combined as ajoint effort(or, at least, work closely together at each step along the way).
A) Working individually, brainstorm some points while considering the following:
What will you say to make that case?
What arguments or examples would be most convincing?
What might happen if these two efforts are NOT aligned (what happens when we pursue climate issues w/o tackling racism? or try to address racism w/o considering climate and environmental issues?)
You should draw on the assigned materials for today (see the readings + podcast at the top);
text from the video(Links to an external site.)
we just viewed; surveys ofracial views on climate Link: https://climatecommunication.yale.edu/publications/race-and-climate-change/
Try to think of the 3 top points you would make.
B) You can think of the best arguments and decide on the 4 MOST COMPELLING points for why racial justice and climate solutions belong together. Write these four out with a short argument supporting each point.
C) Working individually again, look through ALL points from ALL groups, and pick the THREE you consider the most persuasive. Then write a few lines explaining why you choose the #1 point for your list.
