What is the intersection of climate change and social justice?
Find out in this podcast as BCB host Christina Hulet interviews Running-Grass, a long-time environmental justice activist and multicultural environmental educator on Bainbridge Island.
A new study connects climate change impacts to the emissions from Exxon, Chevron
and other large oil, gas and cement companies and their products.
“Using models, they calculated that the greenhouse gas emissions of these 90 companies accounted for around 42 to 50 percent of the global temperature increase and about 26 to 32 percent of global sea level rise over the course of industrial history, from 1880 to 2010. Since 1980, a time when global warming was first getting wide attention, their emissions have accounted for around 28 to 35 percent of rising temperatures and around 11 to 14 percent of rising seas.”
