Social Justice and the Environment

There’s a longish article in The Atlantic with interesting insights into social justice and the environmental movement. I’m not sure yet what I think about it. There are certainly some elements that I agree with. At any rate, it’s entirely worth reading. Once I have some time to think it over, I’ll probably put my reaction in the comments section. I hope others do as well.
