Sources of Information:
For the latest climate justice news, The Guardian’s Climate Change page is often a good place to start. They’ve covered the Climate Strikes, Extinction Rebellion, and divestment. They’ve also committed to using the word climate crisis instead of climate change or global warming. Way to go, Guardian!
