Julie Dermansky of DeSmogBlog spoke with Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein about climate change and social justice 10 years after Hurricane Katrina.
In the four-minute segment, Stein said, “You can’t leave social justice out of the climate conversation in New Orleans or anywhere. We must meet human needs at the same time we meet ecological needs. To propose that people are somehow separate from the ecosystem we live in requires a major cognitive disconnect. It’s like saying you can take care of your heart without taking care of your lungs.”
