Climate (In) Justices resulting from long term and ongoing use of fossil fuels:
* Loss of ice sheets and rising sea levels causing loss of most coastal towns and cities around the world ~ A social injustice from one generation to another.
* North to South ~ most greenhouse gases added by countries in North, with biggest consequences for lower latitudes during summer months.
* Humans monopolizing the planet and threatening existing quarter to half of other species on the planet. (Estimated by IPCC)
Governmental (Dis)Honesty ~ Carbon Fees/Dividends applied on all fossil fuels, possibly the only viable international approach to a creating a solution for reducing carbon emissions significantly over time and moving to clean fuels for the future.
