What perspective on climate change helps us see where the political bottlenecks are, and who is capable of breaking through them? Carbon and consumption are typically associated with an old-fashioned, moralizing and individualistic approach to climate change. In this talk, however, Professor Cohen will argue that a more sophisticated consumption perspective reveals key structural fault lines in climate politics and spotlights invisible (and sometimes accidental) collective climate actors, from women of color leading anti-gentrification campaigns in New York and São Paulo to blue-collar workers in suburban Long Island.

Penn Arts and Sciences' Knowledge by the Slice lunchtime series offers educational talks led by insightful faculty experts. Did we mention there's pizza? So sit back, relax—and have a slice on us.
