Doctoral candidate Rebecca Tuvel writes that because rich nations created much of the problem of climate change, it is our responsibility to come up with the solution. “What is Vanderbilt’s role in all this? For starters, if we are committed not merely to discussing issues of justice in the classroom, but to helping solve them, then Vanderbilt must divest from the fossil fuel industry and commit to sustainable energy. Only then can we members of the Vanderbilt community proudly consider ourselves agents in remedying the historical and ongoing injustices exacerbated by climate change.”
