The climate crisis didn’t happen in a vacuum. It was a long time coming, not only because countries and regions were industrialising but because we were creating systems on already existing unjust foundations. These foundations are rooted in patriarchy, white supremacy, colonialism, classism, heteronormativity and ableism. All neatly coming together in the form capitalism or its more recent insidious form neo-liberalism. For me the solution is obvious, we can’t address climate breakdown alone.
