What Sociology Has To Do With Climate Change

Now more than ever, climate action is necessary to protect our planet and secure the future of the next generations. The global conception of climate change has evolved throughout the years, from being defined in strictly environmental terms like the increase in greenhouse gas emissions to its current framing as an issue of human rights and social justice. This has led to discussions of how climate change issues intensify existing inequalities across lines of gender, race, ethnicity, and social class. Thus, pushing for effective climate action contributes to a fairer and more resilient world.
