UN Secretary-General António Guterres emphasized that there is “no time to delay” if the world is to slow the trend of the devastating impacts of climate change. He argued that science-based solutions and global solidarity would be needed if we are to effectively address climate change. Use the concepts and examples from the course lectures, readings, and other resources to answer the question: How are the current ecological crises, and the various social movements for equality and climate justice, connected to histories of colonialism, modern imperialism, and neo-imperialism?
Consider the following questions as you respond to the final paper prompt:
Who makes money from the industries that do the most environmental damage?
Who profits from the excessive consumption of natural resources and consumer goods?
What sectors of society are most vulnerable and likely to be impacted by the effects of climate change such as drought, fire, violent storms, and flooding?
