Climate Justice

About This Collection

Reframing climate change to climate justice affords us the opportunity to view climate change science through the lens of environmental, social and economic justice and understand that global warming is an ethical and moral issue.  A major proposition of climate justice is that those who are least responsible for climate change suffer its gravest consequences.

The purpose of this collection is to draw your attention to the many voices of climate justice to educate and inspire you.  Of particular note, "Faith communities carrying this message (of climate justice) are potentially powerful voices on climate change – voices that have been largely silent on the issue until recently."   

EarthSayers.tv has also started a Web collection, here as a blog, on Faith and Climate Justice.

The Daily life of Nenets Indigenous women in the Siberian Arctic

Published on Oct 17, 2016

The Nenets people are nomadic reindeer herders in North-West Siberia. They heavily depend on their herds for food, clothes, transport and shelter and have migrated for over 1000 years across their ancestral homelands. Currently the entire region and its inhabitants are under serious threat from climate change as temperatures are on a steep rise and Russia’s ancient permafrost is melting.

Siberia stretches southwards from the Arctic Ocean to the hills of north-central Kazakhstan and to the national borders of Mongolia and China. With an area of 13.1 million square kilometres, Siberia accounts for 77% of Russia's land area, but it is home to just 40 million people – 27% of the country's population.
