Why We Need Energy Justice

(11/2021) The Nonprofit Quarterly has recently published a feature article by Al Weinrub, Coordinator of the Local Clean Energy Alliance, in its special issue on Climate Justice.

In the article, Al argues that "Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) represents just one example of a legacy energy model that has long dominated electric power distribution in the United States. After a rash of climate-induced disasters that have exposed this system’s vulnerabilities and inequities, a grassroots movement is growing to radically transform it—one that sees a transition to renewable energy technology as part of a broader restructuring and transformation of the energy system."
Check out Power to the People: Why We Need Energy Justice and share it with those who are not yet convinced, as Al puts it, that "unless we address institutionalized racism within the energy sector, we will not be successful in fixing the climate crisis."
