What does environmental justice mean during and after a storm? Environmental and tech policy expert Aerica Shimizu Banks explains how one's environment and the weather are just as much a consequence of racial and colonial legacies webbed on our laws through an analysis of hurricanes since 1970. We call storms and other natural disasters acts of God, but they are as similarly influenced by actions on earth as the vulnerable communities that bear the consequences of their increasing intensity.
