Abstract
Climate injustice suggests that those who are least responsible for greenhouse gas emissions are the ones most affected by – and most vulnerable to – climate change consequences; they are also those who have the fewest resources to adapt (Morrow 2010). Climate justice advocates bring a human face to international climate conferences, as they remind state negotiators – who are usually focused on technical solutions to climate finance, reductions of greenhouse gas emissions, and carbon markets – of the human impacts of climate change.
