Environmental Injustice Is Caused By Human-Induced Climate Change — Expert

Environmental Injustice Is Caused By Human-Induced Climate C

The human-induced climate change is more devastating for societies, with groups such as the elderly, children, women, immigrants, and countries with weak economies more affected.

Bahattin Cizreli, a Climate expert and Vice President of the Climate Change Policy and Research Association revealed the discussions.

Cizreli pointed out that a relationship can be established between climate change and discrimination at the class, ethnic and global levels.

He said: “Actually, discrimination is not just a form of emotional reaction, it is a strategy that ensures the reproduction of inequality in its background and enables the reproduction of inequality among the group.

“Women are disproportionately affected by climate change than men, as they are often responsible for tasks such as food production, food preparation, and water delivery that can be directly impacted by climate-related events such as droughts."

Pointing out that human activities cause climate change, Cizreli said; “Industrialization has increased excessive consumption, the development of transportation, the reduction of forests, and the release of various gases into the atmosphere are the main causes of climate change.

"Some countries are more responsible for accelerating climate change than others, considering the production models they have maintained for centuries and their current consumption rates.”
