Climate justice cannot happen without racial justice, says Member of Parliament for Tottenham and Foreign Shadow Secretary David Lammy on this week’s Climate Quickie. We’re revisiting Lammy’s episode where he explains why it’s vital for us to connect the dots between climate and racial justice, referring back to industrialisation’s exploitative past, and policies today which see black and brown people bearing the brunt of rising sea-levels, hotter temperatures and polluted air in cities.
