The failure of the government to respond to the climate crisis is bringing pain and suffering to working class, indigenous, Latinx, and Black communities from coast to coast. Millions of residents have been left without homes, jobs, clean water, or adequate relief. How can working people protect themselves from extreme weather and governmental neglect of climate victims? How can we confront environmental racism? How can we achieve economic justice when facing a series of such crises? How can global warming be stopped?
