Abstract

Careless human actions have given rise to two major injustices: inequality and climate change. These two crisis are threatening the lives of millions globally. Concentration of wealth, power, and capital, being accumulated in the hands of a few, has accelerated climate change and has advanced inequality. This poster presents a model that predicts how climate change can further inequalities worldwide, devastate crops, cause structural damages to state infrastructure and housing, spoil potable water, etc. Since these failures have, and will continue to have, devastating consequences on a global scale, our poster indicates how growth and the environment are interrelated, and offers three possible suggestions to this dilemma.
