Embodied energy injustices: Unveiling and politicizing the transboundary harms of fossil fuel extractivism and fossil fuel supply chains

Topics: Energy, Supply Chain,

This article introduces a new concept termed "embodied energy injustices" to encourage consideration of hidden and distant injustices that are integrated either upstream or downstream within the energy resource supply chain and life cycle. The authors demonstrate the conceptual model with an example from Salem, Massachusetts. The authors believe that by reframing the considerations of energy justice and linking chains of energy injustices, it may help generate and unite powerful trans-local solidarity movements which can call energy justice to wider energy politics.
