Editors’ Note: Our Beyond Apocalypse Series focuses on creative, constructive human responses in the face of urgent climate and environmental challenges. There are critical questions to address about the relationship between gender and climate change mitigation, adaptation, and community survival. However, the recent rebranding of population alarmism as a “justice-based” intervention endangers a vision for a climate movement that successfully connects the struggles for reproductive, environmental, and climate justice. In this issue, researcher Jade Sasser questions the individualist focus of “population justice” and warns of the destructive impact it can have on true social justice movements.
