Barriers and Opportunities
Edited by Rosemary Lyster and Robert R.M. Verchick
Unmitigated effects of climate change on our natural and built environment pose severe risks to workers’ health and safety, and economic risks to workers, employers, communities, and governments. This chapter, using the United States as a case study, finds US labor policies did not reduce and effective manage these risks. Moving forward, an effective approach will require risk management tools that protect workers and labor policies that assist them in adjusting to the economic dislocations likely to arise from climate change and the transition to a green economy.
