[Editor's Note:  "Climate Equity" is more of a progressive objective than a Libertarian one.  Libertarians believe in simply acting personally responsibly and without aggression when it comes to all matters, including taking care of Mother Earth.  However, since the term "Climate Equity" is popping up everywhere, Libertarians might want to become acquainted with its objective if they are not already so.]
