Climate Justice

Low-income, politically marginalized communities—historically those least responsible for CO2 emissions—are also those hardest hit by climate change and every aspect of the energy industry, from toxic pollution to resource wars. Rising Tide supports a “just transition,” in which social and ecological needs are prioritized in the shift to a low-carbon society.  We oppose policies that cause collateral damage to communities or strengthen existing inequalities.  No effort to create a livable future will succeed without the empowerment of marginalized communities and the dismantling of the systems of oppression that keep us divided.
