Ecojustice, using examples from readings and forums.
Andrew Dobson, ecological citizens
What is Eco-Justice?
Is that expression of social justice marked by the following indicators that signal discrimination:
1. the matter involves one or more commons or common property resources.
2. those commonly held sources of wealth and well-being are degraded, destroyed, damaged.
3. the repair costs of those impacts are not shared proportionately
4. there persists an unequal burden in that the benefits accrue to those little or substantially less affected by the actions that degrade, destroy, damage, or marginalizes others.
5. the traditional notions of fairness, equity, and responsibility are to some small or great extent suppressed.
Those who bear the disproportionate burdens are not those who reap the rewards of the existing situation.
