Climate Crisis Energy Violence and Environmental Racism

Climate Crisis, Energy Violence, and Environmental Racism communicates the extremity, breadth and extent of energy violence across energy sources, sectors and geographies. The work accommodates structural, ecological, institutional, physical and economic forms of energy violence, exploring the field through novel research methods and data sources, including the use of comparative homicide and repression databases, the analysis of hotspots and sacrifice zone analysis, and systematic representations of the full continuum of violence. The work is accompanied by comprehensive case studies drawn from global examples, including coal mining, oil production, hydraulic fracturing, biofuels, hydroelectric dams and solar panel construction. By framing the work in the context of violence, and in particular the use of metrics, the book provides a compelling and engaging argument for energy justice. Analyzes energy violence in an accessible and common-sense theoretical framework grounded in ecology, ethics and human rights Explores energy violence across multiple sources, sectors and geographies Interrogates quantifiable structural violence through homicide and repression databases

Often working with an exclusively social understanding of environment, much of the social work profession has overlooked the importance of environmental issues. However, recently, the impact of and worldwide attention to climate change, a string of natural disasters, and increased understanding of issues around environmental justice has put the environment, sustainability, and well-being in the spotlight. Divided into three parts, this field-defining work explores what environmental social work is,

"People acting as a strong, cohesive community can achieve more than individuals. When people work together in community, strategies for change that are sustainable are possible. When people identify with their community, they want to see it survive, which encourages a long-term perspective. The alternative, when instead of seeking community, people engage in individualistic, self-seeking behavior, forms a vicious circle that leads to greed, violence, and crime. The stubborn persistence of violence in the United States and throughout the world

Gradual and sudden environmental changes are resulting in substantial human movement and displacement, and the scale of such flows, both internal and cross-border, is expected to rise with unprecedented impacts on lives and livelihoods. Despite the potential challenge, there has been a lack of strategic thinking about this policy area partly due to a lack of data and empirical research on this topic. Adequately planning for and managing environmentallyinduced migration will be critical for human security. The papers in this
