Poverty is an underlying force behind the disproportionate burden of climate change and health disparities faced by some groups. That these three are the results of how we treat each other is obscene and fundamentally inhumane. If we are anti-poverty, it isn’t just classism, sexism, and racism that we should fight against, but also the antipathy for the at-risk and vulnerable.
We cannot go on depriving millions of the health equity and climate resilience required in modern life. It is inhumane, immoral, to assign vulnerable communities the role to die first and more often.
