What’s the point of climate action without climate justice? A case study inspired by the Caribbean predicament

In this lecture, we will consider the ongoing environmental and social catastrophe that is climate breakdown. We will ask the question, is climate breakdown a ‘human product’, or, rather, the product of some humans? Looking at the case of climate breakdown in the Caribbean helps us to answer this question, as well as to better understand the need for climate justice in any response. Along with this, considering the much-discussed United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change’s (UNFCCC) Conference of Parties (COP) and the 2015 Paris Agreement will help us address these points and connect session 3 with the historical perspective presented in session 2.
