The call for Climate Justice promises a renewed grassroots response to the climate crisis. This emerging movement is rooted in land-based and urban communities around the world that have experienced the most severe impacts of global climate changes. Climate Justice highlights the social justice and human rights dimensions of the crisis, using creative direct action to press for real, systemic changes. Toward Climate Justice explains the case for Climate Justice, challenges the myths underlying carbon markets and other false solutions, and looks behind the events that have obstructed the advance of climate policies at the UN and in the US Congress. This fully revised edition includes numerous updates on current climate science and politics worldwide. Drawing on more than three decades of political engagement with energy and climate issues, author Brian Tokar shows how the perspective of social ecology can point the way toward an ecological reconstruction of society.

"An important book by an important writer on the most important challenge the planet has ever faced. We can meet that challenge -- and in the process come closer to building a just society -- but it will take real focus and real movement-building, which this fine volume helps push us toward!" - Bill McKibben (via email to New Compass Press, 11/26/14)
"It is time that all people understand why the efforts to mitigate the climate crisis have failed to date, what needs to be done now and how the social transformation which will bring about the necessary changes works. Brian Tokar's newly revised Toward Climate Justice: Perspectives on the Climate Crisis and Social Change does just that and that's why I recommend it as essential reading for everyone. It provides facts and explanations to counter the current misinformation about climate change and the proposed solutions to the climate crisis." - Margaret Flowers, popularresistance.org
