Environmental preservation and social justice are often presented as two separate issues; the Earth and its future are one conversation, while inequality is seen as another. However, as the climate crisis gets progressively worse, we’re seeing that marginalised communities in the global north and large swathes of the population affected by poverty in the global south are bearing the brunt of it. Environmental activist and author Leah Thomas joins us on the podcast to dissect the relationship between social justice and environmentalism, the topic of her new book: The Intersectional Environmentalist. Our host is Diyora Shadijanova, journalist and climate editor at gal-dem.
