Climate Justice & Biodiversity

Climate justice and Biodiversity are the most concerns in every talk. Environmentalists and scientists are in hurry to figure out proper solutions to tackle climate change and preserve biodiversity.

Climate justice

Climate change, by its very nature, is a societal issue that may disrupt anyone’s everyday life in a variety of ways. However, not all climate impacts are created equal, nor are they dispersed in the same way. The effects of climate change, from extreme weather to rising sea levels, often have disproportionate effects on historically marginalized or underserved communities.

Climate justice begins with the idea that the adverse impacts of a warming climate are having an adverse effect on people and nature. Our Earth is being gradually “weakened” by the significant impacts of our daily activities, and today, more than ever, we need to take care of our home.

Although the use and popularity of climate justice language has risen substantially in recent years, it is still perceived in a variety of ways, and the many interpretations are frequently disputed. Climate justice may be divided into two categories: procedural justice, which stresses fair, transparent, and inclusive decision-making, and distributive justice, which focuses on who pays the consequences of both climate change and the activities done to combat it.

Biodiversity

The term biodiversity which stands for “biological diversity”, refers to the variety of life on Earth at all its levels, from genes to ecosystems, and can encompass the evolutionary, ecological, and cultural processes that sustain life. Biodiversity does not only consist of rare, threatened, or endangered but also every living thing—from humans to unknown organisms or ones we know little about, such as microbes, fungi, and invertebrates.

Increasingly recognized as the irreplaceable basis of our natural world, biodiversity is also fundamental to human wellbeing and sustainable development. Human activity has irrefutably hammered our natural world. The adverse impacts of a warming climate are having an adverse effect on people and nature. Deforestation isn’t just a threat to warming temperature or rising sea levels but also endangering wildlife.

Biodiversity is essential for every aspect of our lives. We value biodiversity for what it provides to humans and for the value it has in its own right. Therefore, we need to protect and conserve biodiversity as much as possible.

At Oxychain, we believe that trees are not just the best at capturing CO2 from air, their variety makes them the most crucial aspect for sustaining biodiversity on our planet. And biodiversity is our best ally to build the climate resilience we need.
