The weather, currently.
Currently founder, Eric Holthaus interviewed Arvind Ravikumar — a professor at The Hildebrand Department of Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering at the University of Texas-Austin, for The Phoenix.
They discuss a just transition and what the Biden administration has the power to do with or without Congress. Ravikumar shares his insightful perspective as an environmental justice advocate about what is at stake for communities if meaningful investments in a just transition are not made. Read the interview with Ravikumar for more on what a just transition can look like in the U.S. and globally. 
Arvind Ravikumar
Thanks to @EricHolthaus for giving me space to discuss just transitions in O&G communities. We must move away from simplistic narratives, as if transitions are merely about swapping jobs. We need more nuanced discussions that center these communities.

This photojournalism project from The Guardian depicts the harsh realities of living through the climate crisis. They also serve as a reminder of the unequal effects of climate change. Communities that are least responsible are the most impacted.
