Examines how activists view the human body as a site of intersection between social, political, and environmental dynamics. Activists understand climate change as an embodied phenomenon that has multiple impacts on the people who live with it every day. This chapter shows how they have introduced embodied, local forms of knowledge into public debate and transformed climate change solutions. The chapter uses the heavily polluted community of Richmond, California to develop the concept of climate embodiment.
