Climate justice for the poor

I don’t claim to be an expert on climate change. But I have been thinking for years that the issue has much to do with doing justice for the poor. Low-income countries do not have the economic means and infrastructure to minimise the effects of climate change like high-income countries do.

Take a look at this clip from ABC (Australia), and hear this emotional speech by a Filipino official after typhoon Haiyan. (The news article can be found here.)
