Abstract:     
Sandy struck a strategically important city in a strategically important country within days of a strategically important election. Climate justice has many synergistic and sometimes competing dimensions. Irrespective of the degree to which climate change contributes to any given weather event, climate change has an aggregate effect of increasing the need for effective disaster response. This essay argues that prioritizing human rights and environment in the context of energy-climate-water decision-making offers a best practice model for climate mitigation and adaptive resilience.
