"Climate justice: A political or legal issue?"

Neither. No more than the Exxon Valdez disaster was good for the fishermen of Valdez after the compensation was delayed and even denied (till they were dead).

This is about corporations making money for the idle rich in their luxury mansions out where the weather is perfect. Capitalism makes money off of the ups and downs of fortune for the little guy and this is no exception. The winners in climate change will pay through the nose to the wealthy and the losers will be cast aside. There will be no 'climate justice'. Not in the USA. Not in the world. Best we can hope for is that we survive it. The rich no longer have any sense of social justice or responsibility. Just look at the latest effort to kill Obamacare (40th). They would take the entire country down if they don't get their way. It's insane but that is what you get when you get greedy and monomaniacal about getting things your own way like any other self indulgent aristocracy (i.e the plutocracy that exists under capitalism).
