Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to examine the impact of climate change on African Americans in the 21st Century. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions such as Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and the burning of fossil fuels have caused the earth’s temperature to increase by trapping the sun’s heat near the earth’s surface. Scientist, political leaders and a host of others have cited climate change as a real, emerging global dilemma threatening mankind’s existence. As the Pew Center on Global Climate Change states, “The consequences, both anticipated and unforeseen, will have profound ramifications for humanity and the world as a whole.” As the world prepares itself to address climate change, the question becomes what is at stake for African Americans (AAs) and how prepared are they to take advantage of the economic opportunities that grow out of moving from a fossil fuel to a clean energy economy.
