The Right to be Cold: One Woman's Story of Protecting her Culture, the Arctic and the Whole Planet
Watt-Cloutier gives a biographical account of her work on climate justice in the Arctic region. She discusses her perspective on climate change coming from an Indigenous community perspective. Her notion "the right to be cold" clarifies a different conception of climate change and climate justice than is often found in scientific and activist literatures. She also advances a theory of colonial and capitalist expansion that focuses on threats to Indigenous adaptive capacity.
