Climate change and environmental racism are burning the West Coast

As the West Coast of the United States continues to burn, the author argues ‘it is imperative for the US government to admit that what has been done up until now, as far as environmental campaigns are concerned, is not enough’. Upon such an admission, she suggests a change in the approach being taken by the government – “finding new, clean and technological solutions to climate change will not be enough if one does not strive for a total reconfiguration of power dynamics and colonial relations”.
