“In the twenty-first century, nonviolence must include resisting the violence of climate change. People should resist the temptation to use fossil fuel energy or consume industrial foods that they do not need. Citizens should march and protest when governments fail to pass laws limiting overproduction and overconsumption. All human beings should find ways to help those who have been driven from their homes and livelihoods by the changing atmosphere. To resist violence is to seek climate justice”
- Kevin J. O'Brien writing in “The Violence of Climate Change: Lessons of Resistance from Nonviolent Activists”.
