To consider the views of those who will be adversely affected by global warming, it is important to make the discourses about climate change available to the public. Marginalized communities must be enabled to participate in the formulation of problems as well as in the proposal of solutions to the complex and systemic problems of climate change because of their local knowledge about the effects of climate change that are not readily available to observers. Support from the scientific community will enable underserved communities to effectively adapt to the challenges posed by global warming. Sharing the fruits of the sciences is part of the compensation mechanisms that must be provided for those damaged by industrial pollution and the historical injustices committed against disadvantaged populations. Aside from scientific methodologies, prudential and aesthetic judgments must be exercised also to make room for a holistic evaluation of environmental problems. Cooperation among many stakeholders will enhance the social capital of vulnerable populations and allow them to effectively address the adverse effects of climate change. These considerations are premised on the fact that ecological problems, such as climate change, require complex and systemic approaches to arrive at their holistic resolutions.
