Abstract

The Anthropocene era signals the time period in the Earth’s history where humans have had a profound and permanent impact on the Earth’s geology and ecosystems, for example through climate change, ocean acidification, and massive biodiversity loss. In this Special Issue of the King's Law Journal, we reflect the chaos and conflict that is integral to understanding the nature of Environmental Justice in the era of the Anthropocene. From latte levies to pesticides, from musical activism to full-scale rebellion, the contributions to this special issue beautifully reflect some of that chaos. These pieces combine traditional substantive articles with shorter analysis pieces providing insights into the diversity of methodologies and approaches available to reflect on Environmental Justice.

Keywords: anthopocene, environment, justice, interdisciplinary, governance, litigation, climate change
