“I have scoured the bookshelves for books that bring together climate and race. I didn’t find any... This, however, is the first time I’ve seen the topics specifically linked”

Diversifying Power
Why We Need Antiracist, Feminist Leadership on Climate and Energy
Jennie Stephens
September 17, 2020

The climate crisis is a crisis of leadership. Transformation to a renewable-based society requires leaders who connect social justice to climate and energy. During the Trump era, connections among white, male power; environmental destruction; and fossil fuel dependence have become more conspicuous. The inadequate and ineffective framing of climate change as a narrow, isolated, discrete problem to be “solved” by technical solutions is failing. The dominance of technocratic, white, male perspectives on climate and energy has inhibited investments in social innovations. With new leadership and diverse voices, we can strengthen climate resilience, reduce growing inequities, and advance racial and economic justice.
