Global Warming- An International Justice Crisis
What is the Climate Crisis?
The climate crisis can be described as extreme fluctuations in temperature, precipitation, and more violent storms with high winds and longer duration. Scientists believe that processes associated with fossil fuel production and use are causing the climate crisis. Also contributing to this crisis are unsustainable forestry, agricultural, degraded wetlands and oceans, and some industrial processes.
Why Address it
According to the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming, threats to humans and wildlife will grow worse as global warming approaches 1.5 °C. The communities that will be most impacted are those communities who are the least responsible for the climate crisis and have minimal resources to adapt to it. They include indigenous communities, communities of color, poor people,
elderly people, women, young people, immigrants, people with disabilities, the global south, and others who have been systematically marginalized around the globe.
What We Must Do
Every individual has the ability to motivate others and inspire true change. By Organizing an Event, you become a crucial part of our movement by making sure that our mission is heard and has a far-reaching, lasting impact. JAPRI is working with its Partners, especially the United States Climate Action Network (USCAN), to help address this issue.
