Devastating Hurricanes and Environmental Justice Consequences for All

Hurricane Maria has created a level of environmental crisis not seen in the last 100 years. The simultaneous collapse of all systems, access to food, clean water, electricity, health care, fuel, communications, and the banking system, has wrought widespread devastation upon millions in Puerto Rico and other parts of the Caribbean.

The United States must contend anew with the displacements of hundreds of thousands of people, a lack of electricity for millions of residents, and the public health ramifications in the successive aftermath of recent hurricanes, with large parts of Texas and Florida still coping with damage from those storms.

The consummate problems created by the close succession of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose, and Maria strain the resources allocated for dealing with natural disasters in the United States and the Caribbean and will have a heavy toll upon the future of all those whose lives will be forever changed as a result of this latest catastrophe.

The journal seeks papers that will address how these recent weather events will impact both national and global environmental and climate justice communities.
