Summary

When we talk about racism, we often mean personal prejudice or institutional biases. Climate change doesn’t work that way. It is structurally racist, disproportionately caused by majority white people in majority white countries, with the damage unleashed overwhelmingly on people of colour. The climate crisis reflects and reinforces racial injustices. 

In this eye-opening audiobook, author and environmental activist Jeremy Williams takes us on a short, urgent journey across the globe - from Kenya to India, the USA to Australia - to understand how white privilege and climate change overlap. We’ll look at the environmental facts, hear the experiences of the people most affected on our planet and learn from the activists leading the change. 

It’s time for each of us to find our place in the global struggle for justice.

Critic reviews

"Will open the minds of even the most ardent denier of climate change and/or systemic racism. If there’s one book that will help you to be an effective activist for climate justice, it’s this one." (Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu)

"Accessible. Poignant. Challenging." (Nnimmo Bassey, environmentalist and author of To Cook a Continent: Destructive Extraction and the Climate Crisis in Africa)

"Climate Change Is Racist is a significant intervention in climate change studies and activism. Jeremy Williams crafts an accessible, intersectional analysis that is essential reading for those seeking to diversify climate change activism and confront historical, structural racism(s)." (Professor Robert Beckford, director of the Institute for Climate and Social Justice, University of Winchester)

Amazing - everyone should read this!

I will use this book as a Geography Teacher. I hope all Geography students will read it and actually that all Geography Teachers read it too! I also hope everyone reads it as I think everyone should know about this info. It’s spot on. It’s factual, it’s well researched, it crosses over lots of current and important subjects. I loved it. Great!

right and important

This is an important and well crafted contribution. Unfortunately, alarmism detracts from the serious message.
