According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, global fossil fuel emissions must be cut in half over the next 11 years to avoid the most severe impacts of climate change. How this may be achieved is the subject of intense academic and political debate. In this class we'll discuss the challenges, tensions, and possible solutions involved in addressing this global crisis. This class will consider the meaning of climate justice and solutions to the climate crisis from the perspective of global and local social movements. We will question how these intersectional movements challenge global political economy, global governance, and global culture. Similarly, we'll explore how the social struggles in which these social movements are engaged force us to extend our critical analysis beyond keeping fossil fuel emissions out of the atmosphere to consider power relations rooted in class, race, gender, and colonialism. From Canada to Kenya, from Nigeria to the United States, from Ecuador to Germany, we'll move between the scales of local and global, while deploying both empirical and theoretical lenses, to assess the strategies, narratives, and tactics showcased through key case studies where communities are resisting fossil fuel extraction and leading a just transition away from the politics, culture, and economics of fossil fuel dependency.
