About the Authors
  • Future generations, wildlife, and natural resources - collectively referred to as 'the voiceless' in this work - are the most vulnerable and least equipped populations to protect themselves from the impacts of global climate change. While domestic and international law protections are beginning to recognize rights and responsibilities that apply to the voiceless community, these legal developments have yet to be pursued in a collective manner and have not been considered together in the context of climate change and climate justice. In Climate Change and the Voiceless, Randall S. Abate identifies the common vulnerabilities of the voiceless in the Anthropocene era and demonstrates how the law, by incorporating principles of sustainable development, can evolve to protect their interests more effectively. This work should be read by anyone interested in how the law can be employed to mitigate the effects of climate change on those who stand to lose the most.

    • Unifies the three categories of 'the voiceless' in one book for the first time, providing a new way of thinking about potential law reforms to enhance protection of the most vulnerable populations
    • Offers comprehensive treatment of recent developments in climate justice litigation and a new, broader perspective on climate justice that goes beyond human rights
    • Addresses US and international law sources and developments for a comprehensive analysis of strengths and limitations of various countries' legal responses to climate justice issues
