This talk will address how the increase in climate disruptions and converging crises can be understood as environmental and climate injustice. It addresses two different conceptual issues stemming from the climate and environmental crises – two distinct but intersecting claims on turbulence and justice in a very unsettled environment. First, the reality of turbulence or disruption is a challenge to past ways of thinking about environmental disasters and resilience – through single or successive shocks or stressors. Climate change has created converging, overlapping, intersecting crises; it is the new constant. Second, given that growing experience of constant turbulence, disruption, and unsettling, how do we need to rethink and understand environmental injustice, climate injustice, multispecies injustice? What is unjust about turbulence and disruption – the constant disruption of connections to place, to species, to immersive and entangled environments? I close with two key questions or provocations about both democracy and settler societies.
