The Promise of Climate Justice | Michel Gelobter Ph.D. | TEDxMarinSalon

Michel discusses how Justice and Climate Change are inseparable, and understanding their unity is the key to transformative solutions. Michel Gelobter is the co-founder of the Green Leadership Trust, a coalition of the people of color and indigenous board members of US environmental organizations. He is the managing director of the non-profit Reflective Earth, chairman of Cooler, inc. (the Climate Change API), and the author of Lean Startups for Social Change: The Revolutionary Path to Big Impact. Michel co-authored the first reports on how climate change disproportionately impacts communities of color in the US and around the world. He also was instrumental in crafting the California Global Warming Solutions Act as well as the carbon fee mechanisms for 11 Northeastern States. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
