From the Editor
How can we build the momentum to act on climate change now, instead of seeing it as a problem of the future? One way is to acknowledge the disproportionate effects of climate change on people. Contributions in this special issue examine issues of power, ideology, and inequality, as these interact with people's social and environmental vulnerabilities. Research and interviews with leading scholars and practitioners in the fields of environmental and social justice, climate science, and rhetoric, discuss how examining the interaction between climate change and other forms of inequalities is critical for sustainability. Whether you are an academic, a practitioner, or an activist, my hope is that content in this special issue will activate your desire to act now.
